Extended usage time for a pass
Hello! I'm looking into buying the 4 days within a month pass, however I need to be able to use the 4 travel days in a 5 week period (from March 24th to May 2nd). I don’t want to buy the 2 month pass because I don’t really need more than 4 or 5 travel days within those 5 weeks. Is there a way to pay a bit extra and extend the usage time? (so I can use the 4 travel days within 1.5 months for instance). Thanks!
Adding travelers to my trip in the interrail.eu website
I recently bought 8 passes in 2 separate orders and I have 2 trips in my account in the interrail.eu website (that were created automatically). (I am NOT using the Rail Planner app) What I want is to merge those 2 trips into 1 so that I can have all 8 travelers in one trip.I tried to do that by adding travelers to one of the trips, but I always get the error “Your Pass cover number doesn't look right”. I have tried there the pass cover number I see on the back of my pass cover, which starts “I” followed by 8 digits. I also tried the order number that starts with “IN”. Both have failed with the same error.My question is: How can I add all the travelers to 1 trip in your website?Can it be that 1 traveler can only be in one trip? For solving this I tried deleting one of the trips but the website does not let me do that :( Can someone help me achieve what I need? Thank you in advance.
Eurostar seat reservation. Do I need one?
I'm going to be coming to Europe and looking at buying a Eurail pass to cover most of my journey. Looking at going from Paris to London on the Eurostar however the info i have seen seems conflicting.I am told i need a seat resevation and when i look on the planner its around 38 Euros.Then when i researched further im told i need to buy a passholder ticket.1st of i thought Eurostar was free on the Eurail pass but am i expected to also by a passholder ticket plus a seat reservation as indication by the rail planner its very confusing
How do we know if this is the final price from Berlin to Paris
I was wondering what the breakdown of this is, We have done a little research and from what we can tell ICE usually costs a considerable amount more than 20 USD to get from Karlsruhe; we were just wondering if that 20$ was including the final leg of the journey to paris, or how this cost was calculated?If it is just 20$ USD, is it possible to book through “eurail.com” or will we need to book it through OBB - in OBB we don’t see an option to pay for ICE.
How to get reservations travelling in Poland
We’re trying to book train reservations for travel in Poland. The planner states reservations are compulsory, but there seems no way of booking them. We’ve looked at both the DB and PKP websites, but neither gives the possibility of buying reservations. Which leaves us wondering what to do. We’re planning to travel from Berlin to Warsaw, having traveled from Brussels earlier in the day. No reservation is necessary for the leg between Berlin and Frankfurt Oder, however reservations are necessary once we enter Poland. We could buy train tickets, but that’s silly already having an Interrail ticket. Can anyone offer advice about what we do? Thanks for your help
Rail Planner App - Add spouse/partner?
I purchased a Eurail Global Pass - Flexi for my wife and me. I downloaded the Eurail app for the first time and added my passport number as requested. However, I don’t see an option for adding my wife on the pass in the app. Am I missing something? Any guidance is appreciated.
Last name misspell paper pass
I misspelled my last name on my paper pass Struckman when it is actually spelled Struckmann. Can I still travel if it’s misspelled by one letter but all of the other information is correct? So then I don’t have to exchange and pay the fee? We also misspelled his name on the seat reservations and would have to pay extra fees to fix those too. If the pass and seat reservations match (misspelled by one letter) is it okay?
Hi, I am thinking on combining, for the same period of time, a 4-day Global Pass with a One Country Pass. For what I want it is the cheapest option, but I wonder if it’s possible to do that.For instance, I would use 2 days from Global Pass for getting to destination X, then use the One Country Pass in X for a few days, and then use the remaining 2 days from GP. Thank you in advance, Paula
Travelling in my own country
Hi there,sorry if this kind of question has already been answered. So I’m from Germany but I do start my Interrail in France so technically at the start of my trip I’m not using the outbound day. Instead I was wondering if I could just use it at the end of my journey. So the plan would be to use one day to cross the border, spend a few days in another town inside Germany and then use the last travel-day to go back to my home town. TLDR:Day 6: France → German city no. 1Day 7: German city no. 1 → German city no. 2 Would that be all right?
Réservations en Espagne
Bonjour, Jai pris un pass global pour voyager cet été 2023 (juillet et août). J’aimerais boucler mes réservations au plus tôt pour ne pas me retrouver coincée par la période de forte affluence et ne plus avoir de places dans les trains. Mais pour l’Espagne, je vois qu'on ne peut réserver que dans les gares. J'habite en France (à La Réunion plus précisément) et je ne vois pas comment anticiper mes réservations et récupérer mes billets. j'ai peur de me retrouver le bec dans l'eau si j'attends d'être sur place pour faire mes réservations, en plein été et donc avec le risque d'avoir des trains qui affichent complet. Merci pour vos conseils et retours d'expériences pour ceux qui auraient utiliser un pass en espagne pendant l'été.
How to travel out of Switzerland multiple times with a Global Pass and avoid outbound/inbound journey?
I’m a resident of Switzerland (Zurich) and plan to travel in England and France during Sept. and Oct. but want to return to Switzerland 3 to 4 times in this period; one outbound/inbound journey is included in the pass which I can use at any time.What I understand so far: to “save” the out/inbound journey I need to buy point-to-point tickets as explained here: https://www.interrail.eu/en/interrail-passes/what-is-interrail/travel-your-own-countrySo if I take a train from Zurich SBB to Paris via Basel SBB but want to avoid the outbound journey then:I’d need to buy a ticket from Zurich SBB to Basel SBB (the “Grenzbahnhof”) and the journey from Basel SBB to Paris would then be covered by my Global Pass If I take the TGV from Zurich then I’d need to buy a point-to-ticket from Zurich to Basel SBB incl. a seat reservation PLUS a seat reservation from Basel SBB to Paris OR I could take a Swiss train from Zurich to Basel SBB and then get on the TGV in Basel SBB with my Global Pass plus seat rese
Trains SNCF not matching Interrail timetable

Night train reservation Sweden/Norway
Hello,I have two questions :Just to make sure, reserving a berth in advance for the Stockholm/Narvik night train doesn’t mean it will activate my Interrail pass, right? I specified that I have a pass in the research to have the correct prices, and the SJ website is asking for my ticket number. It might sound like a silly question, but I don’t want to make a silly mistake (: I’m also planning on reserving another berth in another night train (this time Bodø/Trondheim) but when I try to make my reservation on Entur, I can’t seem to find the ‘filter’ in which to add my Interrail ticket as a form of discount for my reservation. What would be the steps to follow? Thanks in advance for your help and have a lovely day!Eve
Bari Italy to Rimini
I’ll be arriving in Bari on the ferry from Greece on Sunday at, theoretically, 0900hrs. The ferry is often late though so I don’t know which Bari to Rimini train to reserve. My question is, “how likely are they to run out of Interrail reservations?” Some of the trains are 5 Euro reservations and some are 12 Euros.
Current 10% Discount
Hello and good day to you. Question, currently there is a 10% discount on tickets. In previous question I was told there is usually a better discount during easter. The current discount lasts until March 21, 2023. Is it wise or ok to wait for the Easter discount or just go ahead and purchase my tickets now? I plan to purchase 5 ticket for the 15 days two months. Please let me know, thank you.
Cannot find train from Warsaw to Vienna in the rail planner
Hi guys!We are planning to travel from Warsaw to Vienna by Euronight trains (EN407) on 28th June. However I cannot find this train in the rail planner. I see the reservation is avaliable in the Polrail Service with option for people who have Eurail pass but this website is not shown or authorised? in the Eurail website. Is it too early for this train reservation or it is the problem from the rail planner?Thanks for all your help in advance!Jason

I have a eu rail pass please check is this valid website to reserve seat, as this website reserves only seats within France, as I have Eurail global pass.
What if my paper ticket doesn't arrive on time?
Hi!On March 13th I booked a paper seat reservation for the train from Warsaw to Szceczin on April 5th. I am a very anxious person so I am quite terrified my ticket won’t arrive on time (the estimated delivery date during check-out was April 3rd). I try reasurring myself by reading this forum and trying to convince myself that if the website let me buy the ticket it should be fine, but anxiety can do terrible things to one’s emotions 😅Does anyone know what I can do if my ticket doesn’t arrive on time to actually board the train? I have a big trip planned to see some friends and I would really hate having to cancel it all because of that one ticket.Thank you in avance!
ICE reservation Netherlands - Germany
Hi there,I'm planning my Interrail trip for next summer. The idea is to travel from the Netherlands to Ancona or Bari (Italy) and from there take the ferry to Albania.Now it seems nice to travel to München by day train and from there take the night train to Ancona. However, I'm struggling with the ICE reservations. The most convenient route would be to take the 08.34 ICE 105 from Utrecht Centraal to Mannheim and change to the 12.30 ICE 595 to München (preferred date 10 July). Now, via the "seat only" option on the Deutsche Bahn website, I try to reserve seats for said trains. The ICE 595 seems to work fine, but for the ICE 105 it says "Reservation temporarily not possible". I've tried several times over the course of 1-2 weeks so it seems persistent and not temporary.Another option is the 11.04 ICE 123 from Utrecht to Cologne/Köln and from there the 13.55 ICE 519 to München. Seat reservations for both ICE 123 and ICE 519 can be booked just fine. So it's probably not (a) that I'm too ea
Advice on a trip from London to Paris
We are traveling some time in April we already have the dates of our upcoming trip. we are staying a week in London. We wanted to go to Paris on one of the days we are staying. I searched up train options and the best one we saw was eurails [if better options on a budget please share ] I manage to click our destination on the website and to make reservation I download the app But does anyone know how to set up and get our passes ?I want to book our pass, how do we do that ? And how do we attached them to the app for destination dates? We wanted to go in the morning and leave at night I have already saved our trips in the app but I haven’t been able to moved further. Do I attach our pass to let us reserve for those dates ? Also very important we are not from the UK what document do we need to have at our disposal if they ask ?
