To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
I have a global mobile pass and I have booked the first train from Utrecht (Netherlands) to Milan in the Rail Planner app. Do I make a seat reservation on the ÖBB website/app? And I'm travelling together with someone else. Can I book the seat reservation for them too? Do I just fill in our names, buy the reservation and show it together with our Interrail Ticket of do I need to link them somehow? I hope someone knows the answer :) Thankyou!

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!
Can't book reservation “One of the legs of your journey could not be booked” but it does not say which leg!
My wife and I have spent 10+ hours trying to book our trains for a trip leaving in 6 days and one of the legs apparently cannot be booked. BUT IT DOES NOT SAY WHICH ONE! We are beyond frustrated and have reworked the trip 6 times now and all legs show available until we try to check out. Then I get this error and cannot figure out which one is causing the issue. HELP! PLEASE!
My understanding is:(a) Eurailpasses are NOT valid on Heathrow Express(b) as almost always with local suburban rail operators, Eurailpasses are similarly NOT valid on London Underground (‘Tube’) trains (and buses/trams)however:© Eurailpasses ARE VALID on the newly opened Elizabeth Line (Transport for London) between say London Heathrow Airport terminals and Paddington, or elsewhere on the route (though once one tries to connect to the Tube, one would have to have a valid Oyster Pass issued by TfL.(d) Similarly, Eurailpasses “may” be valid on London Overground trains.Is the latter - c and d- correct?If so, where can one have a Paper Eurailpass validated at Heathrow? Will a TfL staffed booking office do it?
How would it work if the country of residence, like the Netherlands, has electronic gates when you exit the station and return later to catch the next train?
It is stated on the web that the global pass can be used to travel in one’s country of residence during 1 outbound and 1 inbound trip per travel day. I have some questions about the technicality. The “Travel Diary” example lists “Brighton-London St Pan” as an example for the in/outbounds. This is strange in itself, since they are both in the same country, UK/England. In the case someone wants to travel from Station A1 to Station B, via Station A2 in the same country as Station A1, and it is the country of residence → Does he/she have to write A1 - A2 then A2-B separately in the “My Trip” section, or just “A1 - B”? Can the holder exit station A2 in the process and return later to catch the next train to Station B? If the answer is yes, how it would work if the country of residence, like the Netherlands, has electronic gates? Will exiting Station A2 accidentally be counted as doing a trip inside one’s country of residence and thus violating the rules?
Hello, I have a problem because I really need to do some reservations for next week, but the reservation tool on the website doesn't work and I can't do it in the app as well. And I can't do it on any other website nor will I have the time to buy it at the station. The website just does not load or closes itself again and again when I try to write the directions. Can you help me please! It is urgent
Does anybody have information regarding a Transport National Strike in France starting Oct. 17 and running through Oct. 23?We have only seen it on one website (https://worldinparis.com/transport-in-france-strike-news-tips-for-traveling-to-paris) and nowhere else.Would that impact trains and flights from France? We are scheduled to fly from Bordeaux for Barcelona on Oct. 17 on Ryanair.I looked at trains as a potential plan, but most of them are sold out according to Trainline - with one available also using a bus to go from Narbonne to Barcelona.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.
Hi, I tried to add my pass to Rail Planner but didn't work. Also tried to restart my phone, re-installing the app. I had an iPhone some months ago and I thought that maybe on that device will works, but neither this. I don't know what to try more and technically I’ll travel within 6 days, on 16 August.
Hello everyone,Is it possible to add all trips that I want during an already created travel day?Example: I went from Pisa to Florence using a travel day, and during that same day I want to go from Florence to Rome, but I don’t have this trip saved in my Pass yet. Can I add this trip just before entering the train, or do I need to add this trip sooner?
Hi allMe and my partner have second class 1 month mobile passes. We understand there is a reservation fee on many trains. We also understand there can be a supplement on night trains if we want a couchette, or even a compartment for just the 2 of us. So...trying to book TORINO PORTA NUOVA (Italy) 09:55 PM INI 799 INTERCITYNOTTE to Napoli for 28th March , I come up with a $16AUD booking fee for a seat (ok sure, but I want a bed so I'll pay extra)...or $310.40 for 'couchetta c4 comfort per 1 passegero - compartimento intero'. Those are my only 2 options Even if that option means 1x 4 couchette compartment all to myself AND another 1x 4 couchette compartment all for my partner thena) WHY? Why is that the only choice we get? Seems like we get to have 2 seats between us for $16 or a total of 8 individual couchettes for $310???b) Why so expensive when I can book the same train on trenitalia WITHOUT A PASS but with beds for roughly $190?I have read about some rules which mean people have t
I can't find trains in the app for Bosnia and Herzegovina Montenegro, Kosovo, Serbia, northern Macedonia, Albania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
Hello, I'd like to ask whether the European railway pass in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the cross-border trains in Montenegro, Kosovo, Serbia, northern Macedonia, Albania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can't be booked. I can't find it on the app. Then I see that the European railway pass has four free rides on the Greek islands and two Italian round trips to Greece, but there is no one when I click the preferential option for four domestic round trips, However, there are round-trip tickets in Italy, as well as European railway tickets. Many of them are operated by railway, but they will appear when scheduled/
Hey guys!I'm pretty new here and never travelled to Europe so I have no idea how to whole Swiss or Eurail pass works. I've been trying to do my research on the subject but there's a whole bunch of information and I need the most budget efficient plan that I can't seem to find anywhere. I'm traveling with 2 other people - 2 adults 30+ and 1 youth 21.Anyway, I'm planning a trip in February (2023) and will, hopefully, be in able to visit France, England, and Switzerland between Feb 1-16 - and my itinerary is:Feb 1-5 - stay in ParisFeb 5-8 - go to LondonFeb 8 - travel from England to Paris to ZurichFeb 8-10 - stay in Zurich with trip to Lucerne on Feb 9 (8am-7pm) and go back to Zurich same dayFeb 10 - travel to Grindelwald from Zurich and stay from Feb 10-12Feb 12 - travel to Montreux from Grindelwald and stay from Feb 12-14Feb 14 - travel back to Paris from MontreuxFeb 14-16 - final days in Paris before flight to the USI also was planning on taking, during Feb 11, the Glacier Express or s
Hello. We have a global pass and we are trying to travel from Budapest to Belgrade in order to get to Athens. However, we cant find in the app a train from budapest to belgrade. What can be happening? Does the global pass cover this area? Thanks for your help and pardon me for my english (not native tongue, we are from Spain)
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 want to travel from Amsterdam to Basel with ICE 105 on Monday the 18th July at 08:08. The rail planner app states “seat reservation recommendation” but checking oebb.at and bahn.com it seems that the train is fully booked. As the app says that reservations are recommended but not mandatory, I believe I should be able to travel, but I don’t want to gamble. Can someone confirm or deny? I’m fine with moving around in the train if my seat gets taken.Thanks,
I'm currently traveling by train from Bucharest to Budapest and it will have about 2 hours delay. Is there any way to get a refund from the transport company (Mav/Mav start)?Do I need to get a proof of delay by the staff?Thank you for your answers in advance!:)
Hello.. I am new to this eurail website and I started planning my travel and I saw in planner in mobile app I turned on filter for No seat reservations required and searched for travel from kopenhagen to hamburg. In the results I get I see high speed train and one IC train and it says the reservation is recommended.I want to know is it just a suggestion or I have to do reservation in that case?
Hi everyone - I’ve purchased my Eurorail pass and it is activated as I have a strict schedule with hostels booked as well as other events, all in a short amount of time. I’m not worried about plans changing - as I intend to take trains everywhere and only have 2 flights with lots of time before I start on the trains. What I am just wondering is Now that I my Global 10 day in 2 month Eurorail pass:*How do I book the seat reservations?*With direct train operators? OBB for instance gives me the option of “One-way tickets and day tickets or Seat only (no ticket)” ~ what do I choose?*And what is the purpose of the Eurorail pass then?I’m from Canada and we don’t use trains here. Below are the dates and locations so if anyone could please provide with direct links or information - I’d really appreciate it. It would be a very expensive mistake if I booked/reserved the wrong seat. Thank you in advance Berlin Germany, to Warsaw on Oct 12- Warsaw to krakow Oct 14,Krakow To Prague Czech Republic
I have reserved seats no tickets on trains in Germany on DBs platform. My global pass will work as the ticket correct? I'm specifically going Frankfurt to Munich, then onward Munich to Vienna. Normally I could just book the direct ice train. But due to striking tomorrow in Germany I need to do a more convoluted way, and I need confirm seats, because there is a risk I will not get on otherwise. The train tickets are currently around $400, so that's why I need to know if the pass is going to work as my ticket.
Are passengers with tickets and no reservations generally allowed to stand in the train, even though reservations are required?
My wife & I are on a train now travelling between Como, Italy & Basel, Switzerland. We bought reservations because they were required for this train, or so we thought. The aisle in our car is packed with people standing up. There is no way to get up to go to the WC, etc. I was under the impression that you had to get a reservation even to get on the train. Since one of my future reservations for train travel never arrived in the mail, I figured I would not be able to get on the high-speed train and would have to book a slower train that would delay my arrival for 4 hours. Now that I see that these people are allowed to stand up for duration of the trip without reservations, I was thinking of doing the same for my trip between Narbonne, France & Barcelona Spain, since the reservation I bought never arrived. Finally, my question ... . Are passengers with tickets and no reservations generally allowed to stand in the aisles for the duration of their trip even though reser
I am trying to book EuroCity 311 on 6th July from Arth Goldau → Venice and I’m surprised to see such a huge price difference for the exactly same train between bahn and OBB (see screenshots in comments)The price difference is EUR 55 on bahn vs EUR 109 on OBB. Why is there such a huge price difference for the same ticket? Am I missing something here?
