Reservation from Milano Centrale to Spiez Switzerland
My last eurail pass was in 1983! I’ve found EC52 direct from Milano to Spiez on July 10 at 11:20 in the Rail Planner app. When I go to book a reservation using the website, the direct train to Spiez doesn’t appear. The route when using the website reservation system has me changing in DOMODOSSOLA and again in Brig. My question is if I can just get the reservation from Milano to Domodossola on EC52, and then stay on that direct train without a reservation on to Spiez. Thanks so much, Tom

Soderhamn - Uppsala - Soderhamn Soderhamn - Gothenburg - Soderhamn Soderhamn - Copenhagen - SoderhamnI’ve had a look online and Google maps but want a rough idea of pieces (preferably the cheapest option)
Best Number of Travel Days
So I am planning a trip over 12 days. I plan to do a Round trip between Krakow and Auschwitz on the 16th and then take a night train to Prague (the same evening). Then I plan to take a train from Prague to vienna on the 20th, followed by a train from Vienna to Munich on the 22nd, then a night train from Munich to Paris on the 25th. I currently have a 5-day in a month pass to be safe but I am wondering if I should get a 4, especially because the train to Prague was initially going to be the next day. The money saved would be very nice (I bought the 5-day when it was $310 back in February).Also, unrelated to the original but the Train between Krakow and Prague has some disruption to the line. My Chzech knowledge is nonexistant and I cannot tell if the disruption will affect the scheduled night train.Thanks!
Hello,I am resident of Hamburg Germany and I have purchased an Interrail pass. For my journey from Hamburg to Frankfurt, it is being shown as an inbound/outbound trip, which I find confusing. I would like to use 2 days in the pass for inbound/outbound journeys as Hamburg to Prague and Prague to Hamburg. If my Hamburg-Frankfurt journey is incorrectly marked as inbound/outbound trip, I would not be able to make reservations for the Hamburg-Prague-Hamburg trips. Please guide me how it works. Thanks and regards,Hrishikesh
Nightjet NJ 457 reservation problem
I am trying to book a ticket to go from Berlin Hbf to Berclav on June 24, 2023 at 18:52 with the global interrail pass. It lets me activate the ticket but not reserve a seat. It tells me that there are no seats available, but that with every day. I have searched several different websites that also offer this train but it still doesn't work. The train is the one in the title. If anyone can help me or tell me how I can do it or alternatives (which I have not found either) it would be a great favor. Thanks
Italy (Como SG) to France (Lyon) June 2023 using OBB
Hi everyone, I am helping 2 friends, who are 1st time Eurailers, with the ‘benefit’ of my experience of 4 years ago.😬 They are travelling from Italy-France-Italy in June. They have the first trip sorted (La Spezia to Como San Giovanni), but we're having problems with seat reservations from Como SG to Lyon on 16 June. We can book the 1st leg from Como SG (dep 0904) to Basel (arr 1256) or Como SG (dep 0950) to Zurich (arr 1227), but not onward to Lyon. This is using OBB website, following instructions from other topics.RailPlanner app says that 0904 trip from Como SG needs a seat reservation from Como-Basel and Mulhouse (dep 1357) to Lyon (arr 1656). The 0950 trip from Como SG needs seat reservations from Como SG-Zurich, Zurich-Dijon and Dijon-Lyon.Even if I break down the sectors, as other posters have suggested, OBB says ‘no ticket available’ for both options (only Basel-Mulhouse-Lyon shown below).Basel-MulhouseMulhouse-LyonWhat are we doing wrong, or is it too soon to make this booki
Sweden - Norway (Finland?)
Hello!I am already on the road (railway) heading to Stockholm. I would to visit both Sweden and Norway and enjoy the landscape that offer a railway travel. I planned, for now, this simple route:Stockholm - Oslo - Bergen - Oslo - Trondheim - Bodo - Oslo - Malmo - Copenaghen I was thinking also to do the route Stockholm - Narvik, but it seems like very long and with no interesting intermediate stops. Do you recommend it anyway? What about Finland?I was able to book with SJ to get in Sweden. About Norway is it true that is it possible to reserve only by phone(Entur)?On the app I see ALL trains need a reservations, is it correct?Thank you :D
1st or 2nd class for Switzerland?
Hey everyone! I am looking at book an interrail pass for Switzerland travel, but I’m not really sure if its worth buying first class or not. There is quite a difference in price so I’m wondering if this is significant?From what I can see, the majority of posts are regarding space allowance but if its just for travel in Switzerland does this really matter?I am travelling with my boyfriend so I guess I wont be able to sit with him either?Is there any benefit price wise with reservation fees when you book first class? Thanks in advance!

Interrail global pass validity on Snälltåget and Öresundståg
Hi,Still struggling with train connections from Stockholm towards Copenhagen, this has turned out to be the hardest section to plan. We have seat reservations for the 8.24 Snälltåget 3941 from Stockholm to Malmö on June 17th and plan to continue from Malmö to Copenhagen on the 15.33 Öresundståg 1093. Just want to make sure that our Interrail global passes will be valid on both these trains? The SJ couldn't answer my question although we booked the seat reservation from them.
Traveling from Athens to Thessaloniki
Hi! My Friends and I are traveling to Greece for the summer and we wanted to buy the interrail Greece pass (not the island one) in order to discover continental Greece. However, when I use the interrail app to check the timetables of the trains from Athens to Thessaloniki and vice versa, it says that those trains are not available. What could be happening? It is going to be possible to travel Greece by train this summer? I know that last summer was not possible because some railway stuff... Anyways, thank you so much!
Nightjet Sleeper Single Cabin Booking Issue
HiI’m trying to book a couple of Nightjet trains using a pass on OBB’s website.The system is not showing single cabins as available, but showing places in double cabins.The strange part is when I change the search to 2 passengers the same places in 2 berth compartments show. It’ll let me book them and go through to the credit card page. Question is will these be allocated in the same cabin? Thank you!
How to add multiple passes to Rail Planner app?
Hi travelers, I need help with the HOW of adding multiple passes to the app on one device. Here’s what I’ve got so far: I am traveling with my family--two adults, one child--and have purchased Eurail Global passes. I’ve downloaded the app, added MY pass, and linked it to a trip. I can see in FAQs that I am *able* to add multiple passes to one device. However, I cannot figure out HOW to do this. Where do I go in the app to add the passes for my partner and child? Thank you!
"No train" or "prices unavailable"
Hi everybody,Thank you for reading my message first and any help would be appreciated, nice day :)Here is our problem :Venice - Ljubjana 30/07 in the morning"Prices unavailable from Venice to Trieste for mandatory seat reservationsIs this because seat reservations are not yet available or should we find an alternative?Bari - Rome 12/08"No train”Rome - Milan 14/08"No train”For our other destinations, we are too early, so we will wait to book (90 or 60 days before on average).But for the 3 routes above, is it also because we are booking too early? Because the site does not give any detailsOr should we worry and think about another route?Thanks for your help :) Louise

Help in planning booking and how to get the best pass
Here is my question:Family of 5 with 2 seniors and three young adults 16, 23, 25. June 4, 2023: desire to travel via train from Geneva, Switzerland to Stresa, Italy From what I can tell, the cost for a second class ticket is 442.00 USD for all on the direct train, 2nd class fully flexible. We can leave around 12:00 at the earliest but prefer to get into Stresa Italy the mid-late afternoon to get to the hotel, so avoiding the reservation cost is possible if not excessive time is added. June 6: Stresa, Italy to Verona, Italy somewhere between 107.00 to 158 USD total for Ordinare June 8: Verona, Italy to Trieste, Italy 131.45 USD Ordinare June 10: Possible travel to Slovenia but can take the flix bus for reasonable and shorter. Do you have a recommendation on what type of pass I should use (Eurail Single country Italy, Eurail Global, or individual tickets). If the website such as ‘the train line’ say that there are two seats left, does that mean we will not be able to take that train with
Reservations cost Brussels to Paris
We are booking reservations from Brussels to Paris. Usually the reservations cost $10-15 each. When I try to make the reservations it cost $32.50 each. Also I tried b-europe.com and it is $27 each. Does anyone know why it is such a price difference and cost more than normal?Also, I saw the regular price cost is is only around $43. So the savings isn’t much with the Rail pass. Any thoughts would br greatly appreciated.
transfer by public transportation
We are planning on traveling from zermatt to como however in Milan there is a 15 minute transfer that says “transfer by public transportation”. There’s only 30 minutes to do this and I have no idea what kind of transportation there is or if it’s even provided. I don’t want to miss our train. Does anyone know what this could be? Thanks a ton for the help!!
