Get ready to travel
To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hi Community, good day! I will be travelling to Europe this December for the first time and I purchased a Eurail pass for 4 days in 1 month. I am trying to book my seat reservation on b-europe but it is giving me an error message as shown below. Tried searching for the “conditions” they are referring to but to no avails. Would be super grateful if anyone know how I can get around this please?
Hi guys, I’m from the Netherlands and now I am studying in England for 4 months. I want to go back to the Netherlands for Christmas somewhere in the lasts weeks of September. Then a week later I have to be back at school for 1 more week of lessons. After that I have to permanently return to the Netherlands. I was looking to buy a pass for three days so I can travel from UK → NL (day 1) back to UK (day 2) and then back to NL (day 3). But a friend of mine told me that the pass will be terminated when you return the country you leave from. So my question is: Is it possible to depart from a country, then get back in that country, and then go back to your home country afterwards even if you already returned to the country you departed from?Of course this will all happen within a monthThank you so much for helping !
Hola,Soy Eugene y es mi primer contacto con el mundo Interrail.Mi pareja y yo queremos hacer un Interrail de un mes por mi 60 cumpleaños. Es un proyecto que siempre lo hemos querido hacer y por diferentes motivos siempre lo hemos pospuesto.El 2024 es nuestro año😄*Primera duda: Yo hago los años en Septiembre 2024 y querría iniciar mi Interrail ese mes.Puedo comprar el pase antes de cumplir los 60 para utilizarlo cuando los tenga?*Que tipo de pase sería el óptimo?Queremos estar 1 mes de viaje y visitar 6 o 7 países. El pase de 7dias en 1 mes ( flexible ) sería suficiente?*Porque el pase continuo de por ej: 1 mes es que tienes que usarlo todos los días durante ese mes no?Como veis estoy muy perdida con el mundo Interrail.Planteo mis primeras dudas.Advierto que son infinitas.Espero conseguir planificar el viaje con vuestra ayuda.Gracias.Un saludo,Eugene
HelloSo we arrived in Barcelona from Nice today. We decided to make better use of the travel day pass and go into downtown and back before midnight. We took a train out of Barcelo Sants train station. We needed to get off at the first stop. A few issues. The train numbers didn’t match up with our pass and the wickets wouldn’t recognize our QR codes, we ended up following people through. Do our passes work for those local trains? Thx for any help.
The Birthdates for my self and another traveller are listed wrong. I am positive I entered them correctly, but somehow they were changed?I have emailed and contacted eurail via the chat bot several times over the past few months to resolve this issue. But I have not heard or received any help.Does anyone know if having a wrong birthdate listed will affect travel? Our trip is in a few weeks.Thanks!
I am trying to add a trip on ICE123 from Amsterdam to Frankfurt. The app says that a supplement is needed, but links me to a page about 4 supplements, none of which apply to this trip. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction of which supplement needs to be purchased and where I can do this from? Many thanks
In my app now, I have two trips, one from earlier this year and one I just returned from.I think it’s nice to save old trips, since it can be used to remember what happened, etc, but it’s also a bit more work for each new leg, since I had to choose which trip to add it to.Can I remove old trips from the app, but save the contents somewhere else (typically cloud)? My interrail.eu account only seems to hold old passes, not the actual trips.
Our trip is as follows: Need to know if this is achievable and we can find tickets and reservations. Also regarding hotels when do we book them. Do we confirm tickets first then book the hotels?

Hello, I booked a Eurostar reservation with SNCB quite a few months ago.I paid €34 and that shows in my PayPal account.I just happened to check the email today and when I checked my ticket there were two reservations, both in my name and for different seats. They are both for same day too.There is also a total dossier value of €64.Only one ticket brings up a bar code.The reason I am asking about this here is to see if anyone else has experienced this phenomena of mystery tickets appearing.Also, I don't have access to my phone number ATM (well not unless I pay for a days roaming with my provider and I have a data eSIM) but the only way to contact SNCB on the app is by phone.Does anyone know another way to contact SNCB? I am tempted to just leave this and on the day declare I didn't book that second ticket but I'd hate to be told I have to pay for a seat, or something.
New to Eurail. Bought our tickets from Munich to Vienna through the Rail Planner app and when we went to make the seat reservations, I get a message at the end telling me they are sold out. We have a 1st class pass and tried booking 1st and 2nd class seat reservations in any configuration. Any suggestions? Will we get a seat? Or for that matter, will we get on the train? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
We have made seat reservations on the TGV Lyria Basel-Paris. Its a double decker train but we’ve been allocated lower deck seats -there was no choice on the Interrail seat reservation service.Is it possible to change the seat reservation numbers to get an upper deck seat?
Hello, Avec ma copine nous souhaitons partir aux Pays Bas du samedi 28 octobre au jeudi 2 novembre. L’idée est de partir de Nantes direction Rotterdam puis Utrecht puis Amsterdam et retour à Nantes. Je souhaitais savoir quel pass prendre ? Dois-je prendre un pass global ? Comprends-il le trajet départ et retour de Nantes ? Ou dois-je prendre un pass Benelux ? Merci pour votre aide :)
Hello, it is the first time that I will go to Europe and I am in real trouble, since I ventured to make my own route without knowing absolutely anything and paying attention to the places of interest of my daughter who is the one who wants to go for her birthday. Serious mistake! The thing is that I can't find dates for 2024 on any train line, apparently they are not available yet, I don't know when they will be available. That has meant that I have no prices, dates or schedules and if I don't know which trains to take, even less so without the data 🤷 😞 I also don't know if it's convenient for me to buy the Pass or not, and even less so if I don't fully understand the difference between the Global Pass and a Country Pass! Because it says in one part that a country's pass is valid per region, I mean, then Germany's, what region is it? Or how would it serve me? Unlike the other I have only been able to buy train tickets from Italy, (I don't know why if they are from February 2024) b
I know the pass covers one inbound and one outbound trip from the home country but does the pass cover travel from any train station in one’s home country? In other words, if I want to travel from my home town (outside London) to Paris, would it cover the part from my home town to London on the same day that I would get a connecting train from London to Paris? Thanks
Hi there, We have Eurail Global passes (1st class) and want to book from Nice Ville to Amsterdam Centraal via Paris on 10th Oct 2023.So far I can find the train journey for this date but cannot make any reservations!I started by looking on the RailEurope app and found relevant trains for the morning time but cannot book any of the journeys at all :( Idealy we would go Nice to Paris, then have an hour or so to change trains, then from Paris to Amsterdam. We considered an overnight train but it doesn’t appear to be an option. I have looked on RailEurope app, OBB, Bahn.de, the trainline and SNCF. Please see some of my searches and screenshots. Thetrainline had an option for the first leg to continue to payment but obviously we want to use the Eurail passes.Any suggestions on how we can get back from Nice to Amsterdam on the 10th or 11th October will be super appreciated. We have to fly back to New Zealand the next day eeep.Thank you.
Hello all, New world traveler here. I just purchased 2 (5 days in a month) passes for a trip my wife and I will take the first week of December. A couple questions: Would it be best to make all the reservations and travel planning details while i have both passes in my possession (my Eurail account)? How do i transfer the wife’s pass, and associated reservations, to her account?Thanks in advance!
Hi! I'm travelling from Utrecht Centraal to Budapest in november and for my final train, from Vienna to Budapest, the website says I can't book a seat reservation. It says the prices are unavailable. Does anyone knows how this works? 1) Is it full? 2) Can I not book it in advance but is there still a chance I can take the train? 3) If I book a seat reservation on the site on this train company (https://www.cd.cz/en/), can I use that reservation to travel with my Interrail pass? On the website I have the option to book a ‘reservation only’, but will that allow me to hop on the train with my pass (and thus not pay the ticket)? Also, if I try to make this reservation the site says the train is temporarily unavailable.In at least one of the trains that are part of my journey (also if I switch to a different date) I have this problem.Also I was wondering in general if a certain train says ‘reservation not required’ but you can optionally book it, how this works. Is there then a possibility
My parents and I are traveling to Europe for the first time this November. In order to build paperwork for our Schengen visa application, I booked train seat reservations ahead of time. But because of some inconveniences regarding our visa application, I had to change booking our hotels. This means that, now, the current seat reservation for one of our rides (ICE 78) is on the “wrong” day. I’ve tried canceling or rescheduling the reservation, but I cannot. My sister suggests that I make a new reservation on the right day. What happens to the previous booking if we don’t ride it?
I have never done interrail/eurail before and I’m considering using it for an upcoming trip. I can’t seem to find an answer for the following (specific) scenario.Scenario: I have a 3 year old. I know she doesn’t need her own pass, and I know that I can get her the (free) pass for 4-11 year olds if I want to make a seat reservation. We want to take the train from London to Paris, and I don’t mind keeping her on my lap.Question: is seat reservation mandatory for my child on “seat reservation mandatory” train rides? Has anyone here been in this specific scenario? I’ve read a lot that seems to indicate she doesn’t need her own reservation, but nothing that explicitly says she won’t.
