How do I read an OBB ticket
I made a reservation with OBB for tickets from Munich to Genova, and I am not sure if it is what I think it is. The printed tickets are all German, and I have translated some, and see it does say I paid with a credit card, but I don’t see where the times or train numbers are. I emailed OBB customer service, and there are ticket numbers and a QR code in what I printed, but I can’t figure out where on the ticket where it gives the info I need. I printed out a time table, but I don’t remember where that came from. I can’t find anything on the OBB sute to check a reservation, or to change a reservation. And if I remember, it gave a place to enter our Eurail pass numbers.
Cannot book reservation when logged in
I cannot book a reservation while logged in. The ‘Book reservation’ button just disappears. Why?In the first screenshot beneath, the button is there but I’am not logged in. In the second I am logged in, which is needed to proceed with the booking, but the button disappears. How do I now book a reservation?
Question about DB in german rail pass
Hi all.I checked the information about German Rail Pass.It said I can use ANY DB train in the pass.Here is the question. I hope to go to Praha, Czech. And there is a DB train to go Praha.But the information about the other countries that pass can be used, there’s no Czech or Praha in that.There is only Austria, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland.In this case, Can I use the pass in Praha? or are those countries only I can go with the pass?And if it’s possible to use the pass in Praha, can I use it in Praha as departure also?If anyone knows about this problem, please let me know the answer.Thank you.

Train lines from Faro, Portugal to Sevilla, Spain.
I am looking at the map of eurail routes and need to know if there is a short route from Faro, Portugal to Sevilla, Spain. I don't see one on the map but these cities are so close! We want to visit both and in order to get to faro to Sevilla it would be a very long journey back to Lisbon, Madrid, and then Sevilla.Or we have to rent a car which would be fine but to rent a car in one country and leave it in another is very expensive. Does anyone have experience with traveling between these smaller cities? And what might be the best practice?

TER From Paris to Bayeux: Reservation Required, but can't reserve?
I’m trying to book a reservation which it says it’s needed, but it’s also saying that it can’t be booked on their website.How can I get a reservation for a TER train? All I see on the sncf site is a way to “Buy” tickets, but obviously I don’t want to do that.

Munich Airport to downtown with the Pass
My husband and I will be going to Munich arriving on March 7. This is the first time I have used the pass, and it is on my phone. If I had a paper ticket I think I could figure this out.My question is how do I get the QR code on my phone to show the conductor I have paid for the train from the airport to downtown Munich HBF? There are many to choose from, and I don’t know which train we will need. I put two of the schedules in the phone, but until we are there, I don’t know which one we will use. I can see there are next steps to do, IF you know which trip you will use, and then I assume the code will pop up. When do I show them the proof we have a Eurail pass? I have our passport numbers in the phone app, so I think I have it all in order. I have other reservations for this trip that I could print a ticket, and it had a QR code. That part I am not worried about, it is this very first trip from the Munich airport.

Madrid to Cordoba seat reservation
we have purchased a 2 month global Eurail pass for Spain & Portugal, Our trip begins in Spain on June 1st 2023. All accommodation bookings have been made so we know exactly on what dates we’ll be traveling from city to city in Spain and Portugal .Our question is regarding seat reservations. We’re aware that seat reservations cannot be booked online for these countries & need to be made either at a ticket office or at the station.We arrive Madrid 1st June & wish to take train straight to Cordoba. Do we run any risk of not being able to make a seat reservation when we arrive in Spain? Because of time of year we’re concerned we won’t get on the train. Is there some way we can secure a booking before arriving in Madrid?We are currently in New Zealand and will be the UK from the 10th May.Any help much appreciated
How to plan/create an Eurail journey
We are planning a two-month trip through Europe for this summer. We’ve activated our Global passes because we know our first date of train travel. However, we can’t add actual trips yet (for some mysterious reason), so we’re adding them manually. But how do those manually entered trips turn into trips that will be honored once we start using the passes?This system is extremely confusing, and we’re hoping for some really helpful guidance.Kate Sibley
Pass help please? Travelling in Norway
So myself and my teenage child are heading to Norway in July we fly in to Bodo and will be travelling via train over a 4 week period in to the middle of August. Norway has an 8 day within one month pass so do i need to count how many days travel for July then how many days travel for August and buy a different pass for both months or does the month just mean 30/31 days. I am so confused
Night train + last travel day
Hello, my last travel day is the 4.3. and I was planning on taking a night train because I read that it only counts as one day. I sadly can't activate it because it tells me that I need another travel day. I am not switching trains after midnight. I also already bought the Reservation.Do you know what I can do to make it work?
Ambiguous reservation system
I don't know if member's are aware, that if you book Amsterdam to London. Eurail have no direct trains, but you have to book 2 separate trains, one from Amsterdam to Brussels either IC or Thalys, change in Brussels and go through security, before boarding Eurostar.I got caught out by the website and finished up with a Brussels to London ticket. I have to now book at extra cost Amsterdam to Brussels with all the hassle of security in Brussels, and making sure my train arrives early enough. But I can't do this until 90 days before.I have tried to cancel or reschedule my trip through both Eurail and Eurostar to no avail, they just don't want to know.I reckon they take your money then abandon you.Be careful with booking on the Eurail website.
