For those of you travelling in England, the Eurail pass works on most BritRail lines (including the ThamesLink and the new Elizabeth Line). It does NOT work on the Heathrow Express, despite what’s on the Eurail information. However, the good news is that, with the new Elizabeth line in London, you don’t need the Heathrow Express. The Elizabeth line trains run from Paddington Station to Heathrow often (I think about every 20 minutes) and are wonderful I just travelled from Brighton (on the Thameslink) to Heathrow in a little over 2 ½ hours. For some reason, the Eurail QR code doesn’t work on any of the BritRail scanners, but just go to one of the wonderful station workers and they’ll get you through.
I installed the Interrail Rail Planner App (several times). But my mobile is always shutting down, when opening it. I´ve tried various ways solving the problem (reinstalling, App Settings as proposed, ...), but nothing has changed. Now it´s only 3 weeks to go, before our trip begins. The seat reservations are bought. What can I do, if I should not find a way to start the App on my mobile? How can I activate my pass and proof / show my tickets?I reported the problem to the customer service some weeks ago, but the advice wasn´t helpful. The prior condition was always a started app e.g. for error logging and so on. But as I wrote: The mobile (Huawei P 8, Android 6.0, is shutting down after starting the app before I can do anything.
Hey everyone,I'm about to buy a Global Pass for my journey going from Germany to Denmark, Sweden and Norway and am not sure whether to buy first Class or second Class Pass. In Germany ist common that by purchasing first class tickets seat reservation ist already included. So my question is if somebody knows how this is for Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Do I still have to buy seat reservation or is the reservation even more expensive?Would be perfect if somebody could tell :)
HelloMe and my friend are going to sail from Bari to Patras the 2. of June 2022. We are holders of a interrail 2. class global pass. I have read on interrail‘s website that we with this interrail pass are able to get free deck passage when traveling with Superfast ferries. But when I try to book our journey online at their website I’m not able to choose the category “ interrail global pass 2. class” and therefor I can’t get any discount. Can you help me? How do I book trickets frem Bari to Patras?
Hi! We want to go from Thessaloniki to Skopje but we found out that there is no train connection at the moment. We thought a solution would be with the bus but we can't also find any bustickets for this route. Is there anyone who knows where we can buy these tickets online? Thank you!Meike
Hello, I bought the global Pass and now I have a big problem, please help me! Actually, I had planned to start my journey today. (Bremen - Barcelona) However, I got a message from one of the train companies that the train leaves at a different time than the one shown in the Interrail app. This would mean that I won't be able to catch all the connecting trains. Therefore, I had to reschedule my trip and I will now start my journey tomorrow (16.04.22) at night. Now I can no longer deactivate my outbound/inbound journey today, although I will not be travelling at all today. However, I still need this outbound/inbound for coming home at the end of the holiday.Please help me delete today's travel day, this is just not fair. I am grateful for any help!Thank you very much!
I just bought a Eurail 15 days in 2 months Pass and was trying to book seat reservations. I will be arriving in Paris on May 31st and my first train is on June 1st from paris to Lyon, which is why I really want to book my reservations online, not in person.I have tried multiple times, and many different routes, but I keep getting the same error message. It says: “please find an alternate connection, the unavailable leg will be removed from your cart”. This message pops up no matter the route or time I try.I also tried to book through the travel.b.europe website, however, I need a pass cover number for that, and I have a digital pass. I do not want to risk booking the ticket the day of arrival so I don’t know how this can be fixed. The trains I plan to take which need a reservation are the following: Paris Gare de lyon- Lyon Part Dieu: June 1, 2022 12:50-14:36Lyon Part Dieu – Milano Centrale: June 2, 2022 10:38-17:40Milano Centrale- Firenze S.M.N: June 8, 2022 10:10-12:04Bruxelles
Hi, we habe a mobile pass and we planned our trip with the train connections of the deutsche Bahn App. The Problem is that the train connections that we planned with aren’t existing in the interrail app. Now we want to activate our pass but we have to add our train connections that aren’t existing here. Can we use the train connections of the deutsche Bahn App for our mobile pass because only with them we can visit the places that we would like to visit. We also saw that Deutsche Bahn and interrail are cooperating partners so it would be possible right?
Hey there,I'm planning on doing an Interrail trip to Denmark and Norway in september. First to Copenhagen and take the ferry to Oslo after.Now I wanted to take return trains to Bergen and back to Oslo and wanted to book some seat reservations for them. And while it's possible to do this through the interrail website (unfortunately not for the trains I want to take in sep cause they're not listed at the interrail reservations site, but according to vy.no they are indeed defenitely scheduled) I have a 1st class pass and I read I should make a reservation for a Pluss seat. But the interrail website only sells 2nd class seat reservations. So I figured I should make seat reservations by calling the Entur agency? But my question is how much will it cost to book a Pluss seat through this agency? And is there any way else to make a reservation? Online perhaps? I also read it's possible to book your seats at the station in Norway and for no extra cost even, but I don't know if the train I want
Does anyone know what the following rules mean at TRENITALIA if you travel in 1st class with Interrail. " Access to the executive and premium services class is not allowed on the frecciarossa 4L , where 1st class Interrail holders are allowed to travel in business" I have added a photo, but it has already been translated into Dutch.
Hello, I’m in the middle of my trip and it seems like I can’t add journeys to my trip anymore. iOS version 15.4.1 app version 23.1.0.In the planner when I click on “save journey” I get the confirmation of saved to trip but when going to the trip there is nothing new there.I have tried:Force quitting the app Restarting the device Reinstalling the appNone of these are letting me get anything new on my trip. What else should I do?
Hi, i’m planning a trip through multiple countries (Austria, Germany and Italy). When planning out my train schedule in “book reservations” for trains “included” in my pass I’m sometimes met with:1) “You’re ready to board” 2) an extra cost (example: for a night train (nightjet) from Cologne to Vienna) 3) “You're ready to board, You can buy a seat reservation if you like but it's not required.” 4) “+ Additional supplement required, You will need to pay an extra supplement at the station or on board the train.”I’m wondering what these mean exactly.Does “1)” mean i don’t need a reservation or anything else and can just show up and hop on at the station ?If I pay the extra cost for “2)”, I will be sent an electronic ticket. Is that enough in combination with my pass to board the train ?For “3)”, how do I know if a seat reservatiion is necessary (to avoid finding no seat on a full train)? And just to make sure, for “4)”, Am I right for thinking the ticket person will just ask me to pay a
I cannot find the Caledonian Sleeper direct train from London to Edinburgh in the Rail Planner app. There are only options with one transfer. My questions are:(1) Is Eurail pass still valid on this train in 2022 whether it is a direct train or a train with transfer?(2) Is Eurail pass not valid on Caledonian Sleeper direct trains anymore now?Thank you!

Seat reservations not required, but prices are unavailable. Can I get on or is it full? Croatia night train
Hi! So we were looking to get a night train from Zagreb to Split, it says :“You're ready to board. You can buy a seat reservation if you like but it's not required.”But then underneath it it says: “Prices unavailable. No price results were found for this connection. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please try searching for another connection or check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation. If no pass holder seats are available anymore you need to buy a separate full fare ticket to board.” Does this mean we could turn up on the day and get on without a reservation or does it mean it is fully sold out? Any help would be appreciatedThanks!
Hello all, I am trying to book reservations online which I really need to do soon but the interface always says“Your Pass cover number doesn't look right”I already tried out all numbers I could find on my paper pass and in the online reservation. Issuer is DB (CIV 1080), as it says on the pass. Could the issue maybe be that I did not purchase the pass myself but the travel department of my employer did it?
im catching a tgv from paris to geneva 29th June. it says booking is required. i tried to book but it seems to be fully booked.It says "Prices unavailable. No price results were found for this connection. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please try searching for another connection or check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation. If no pass holder seats are available anymore you need to buy a separate full fare ticket to board." Am i allowed to stand or sit on the train floor without a seat reservation. All the trains for the day say the same thing. I tried booking on other train sites and all say fully booked or don't give option. If I have an eu rail pass can I use that amd just stand on the tgv train, or is a seat reservation essential?

Her friend who will be with her only has time for three weeks - so is it possible to change the ticket to another person for one week . so my daughter has the possibility to join four weeks? Thanks in advance
HI there, I hope you can help. This will be a really long post so if it’s too much to read all of it, the main questions are:(1) does my itinerary below actually count as 4 travel days (based on using night trains)?(2) I think I need 3 journeys on 3 separate days in total, within my own country. This apparently isn’t allowed on the Interrail ticket. Is there any way round this, for example if you’re using nightjet and there’s no other route (Germany’s pretty big)?Long version:I’ve booked a holiday house on the South Coast of France (near Cannes), and we decided this year that it’s too far by car, and we won’t take the plane. So we’ll take the train - great! And a sleeper, as it’s a long journey, what fun!I think i’ve figured out the easiest route now, which was complicated by long journeys needing night trains and then seeing a stop in Italy makes sense to add some extra holiday. I was getting ready to book the 4 day Interrail passes for the family, but i’ve just discovered a rather aw
Hi,I would like to know how to book a seat reservation for the Eurocity train (EC57) from Berlin to Krakow. The Interrail planner tells me that reservation is mandatory.
