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 ?
My reserved Eurostar train no longer appears listed
I have paid for seat reservations on Eurostar for a specific date and time.My train departed at 09:03 a.m. on April 15th I have the Eurostar App that still shows this date and time. But both the Eurail app and the Eurostar website timetables no longer show this train at all. They show a 9:30 a.m. train or an 8:30 a.m. train.I have written to Eurostar support to find out what happened to my reservation, but in the meantime I'd like to know if this is a common occurrence and how do people get it solved.

Transportation from Baden Baden station to Baden Baden central
This is our first time visiting Europe. We are planning to purchase a 15 day pass for train transportation in the Netherlands and Germany. We are from South Africa and therefore not familiar with the Eurail and spesific transportation option available. Part of our trip is going to Baden Baden. We will be travelling from Amsterdam to Baden Baden station usng the eurail global pass. However, we are not sure if the eurail pass can be used for a bus from the station to Baden Baden town (central). If yes, which bus should we take? If not, can you assist with the the cheapest option available to get to Baden Baden town from the station

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 keeps crashing - URGENT - Travelling in two days
Hi,Today the Rail Planner app keeps crashing on my iPhone despite working perfectly fine until today. I am set to travel in two days and the apps doesn’t work!I have tried multiples times to deinstall then reinstall the app and suppressing it. All these attempts remain unsuccessful. I also shut down multiples times my iPhone and also liberated additional space.I suspect this may be related to the last update of the app. I also note that I am already abroad and I am currently using a prepaid travel SIM card but I doubt that this could be the problem since when I put back my current SIM card, the app is not working either.I have only a few seconds when the app opens and then close itself in a few seconds. I can see that my pass is also not in the app anymore.Does anyone ever had this problem and what was the solution?I have already sent an email to technical support but I fear they may not reply in time. I am set to travel (first train ride) Sunday March 12, Spain local time! Thank you,M
Paris to Spanish border this Sun 12/Mon 13 March
Hey Interrailers and Eurailers :)I have a reservation for the Intercité de Nuit 3731 Paris - Perpignan for this Sunday (12 March, 9.42pm). From there I was planning to head down to Tarragona on Monday.I'm pretty sure the train has been canceled: https://www.sncf.com/en/booking-itinerary/search-train-number/train-details/3731?date=03%2F12%2F2023&codeCirculation=9fdbf481825f3a7b8b503694793f693a&codeZoneArret=OCE87547000Luckily my train to Paris tomorrow still seems to be going. I'm thinking about probably getting the bus instead of the night train.But do you have any ideas for alternative ways to get from Paris to Tarragona or am I missing anything important or obvious!?I'm seeing a friend on Sunday so I won't be able to leave a lot earlier but would be OK with staying in Paris then leaving there Monday morning. It's just the strike is stopping me knowing what trains will actually go!?
Strategy when delayed (or about to be) overnight?
Earlier this year I was travelling Brussels to Chamonix. I was planning on leaving Brussels at 0823 on ICE13, via Cologne - Basel - Martigny - Vallorcine, to arrive that evening into Chamonix.On day of departure, the ICE was cancelled. The next departure to Cologne was a Thalys an hour later. I paid €25 for a reservation, and could still get to Chamonix that evening.Then my ICE from Cologne was delayed, missing my connection at Mannheim, and I wouldn’t be able to get to Chamonix that day by train. So I diverted instead to Geneva airport, where I took a shared bus transfer for €50.Eurail gave me a €20 refund for the delay, but that didn't cover my extra costs. (I mentioned the Thalys expense, but not the bus cost)Should I have done things differently? Should I have let myself get stranded in Vallorcine, then somebody would have paid (or reimbursed me) for a hotel or taxi? Or is it just tough luck?It would be useful to know for the future.
Budapest to Innsbruck
Hello Everyone,Just received my Eurail passes. Tried to make a reservation from Budapest to Innsbruck. Message I received that passes may not work. The date is for July 24, ‘23. Wondering if this is an issue of just waiting to be 90 days away or if it is Eurail pass issue? Can we use our Eurail pass from Budapest to Innsbruck?Thank you,Sean
Help: French strike and whole trip messed up
Hi all,I had planned to use my interrail for a full week of holidays in London. My plan was to do:11 March (tomorrow): Geneva - Paris (06:29 - 09:26 am), Paris - Brussels. Stay in Brussels the day to visit 12 March (Sunday): Brussels - Lille (07:17 - 07:51), Lille - London (09:31 - 09:51) and then stay in LondonI took seat reservations for all of these connections. Now to the challenge:Geneva to Paris train on 11 March is now cancelled because of the strike. The alternative train I could take is Lausanne to Paris (07:23 - 11:12). However there aren't any seats available to reserve this on the interrail site. Can I just jump in and fight my right to stay but with no reservation to that specific train (different though very close departure point)? The Paris - Brussels is still ok until now so if I get to Paris with the Lausanne train and run for my life from Gare de Lyon to Gare Nord I should be able to board it. Let’s imagine I do. So now Im in Brussels. The train Bruxelles to Lille
Can't book SNCF for summer
Interrail website allows me to book SNCF trains Barcelona - France for this month but not for this summer. However, on SCNF connect website the train can be booked.Will they book it for me if I call? it feels counter-intuitive to call now that everything is online, but if someone has already reserved via phone and it works I will do so.
