Rome - Strasbourg August 2023 not available
Hello, we are a family of 5 travelling this summer.We need to travel from Rome to Strasbourg on the Saturday12th August.I realise it’s a very long journey but when I had searched previously the route seemed more straightforward than it is showing now.I am assuming it is due to engineering works but don’t know the easiest way to find out. We have an AirBnB booked in Strasbourg so ideally need to arrive at a reasonable hour. I also don’t know what time the Metro starts in Rome in terms of getting to the main station or maybe we can just get a taxi.Any advice very welcome please!
How to book seat reservations
Hi all, I am unable to figure out how this seat reservation works. At the moment I've seen it pop up from Munich to Rome and Paris to London (via Eurostar I think).The articles and topics I've come across on here aren't that helpful for me because I don't understand how it needs to be booked. I booked a train from Amsterdam to Berlin and although it said "seat reservation required" I didn't book anything and my friends and I were still able to find a seat. Any help would be greatly appreciated please and thank you!! 😊
Istanbul to Italy
I'm travelling from Istanbul to Florence (via Budapest) and finding booking / reservations on the interrail site quite complicated - especially for the Istanbul - Budapest leg.I've looked at the Bosphorus night train which seems you can only reserve at the train station in Istanbul. Does anyone have any tips or route reccomendations particularly from Istanbul - Budpest? The route to Sofia or Bucuresti Nord I'm struggling to be able to reserve on the interrail site?Thank you!!

In-Station Night Train Reservations? (+ how does it work?)
Hi! I have a few questions about reservations, more specifically night trains. I’m planning to take a night train from Warsaw Central to Budapest (IC407), and I’ve found Polrail and Czech Transport websites to book the reservations for a sleeper. The only thing is, that the shipping is so pricey and I’m anxious I won’t get them in time. Is it possible to book a bed or couchette in station in Warsaw Central? I’ll be traveling mid-June. Another question I have, is how is the station reservation booking process? Even for normal seats. Do you just show your Interrail pass and the train you want to take? This is my first Interrail trip, so I am a bit confused and anxious about reservations!
Salzburg to Lesce Bled
I’m looking to book seat reservations for a 2am train in July but it’s saying prices unavailable. On the train company’s website it’s also saying ticket unavailable. Does this mean it’s sold out already? Any advice to get around this? Accommodation is already booked for both locations so would like to avoid moving dates or locations if possible. Thanks!
Not able to reserve Spiez to Milano Centrale in August
Hi, I’m trying to reserve couple of seats for August 26th but the trenitalia.com site shows “No travel solution found” for that date and route. I thought this is because I was being too early but I see open reservations for September (starting 16th). Also, the direct train (E51) is already sold out for August 19th (week prior to my booking date). So, this is making me anxious now.QuestionsAre there any other websites I can book direct trains for this route? Why am I not able to book August 26th? Is it because August reservations open late?Any tips or help on this is very much appreciated.Thank you!
I want to start my trip from Istanbul which is not in my country of residence, and after 7 days of travel I get to France, can I use inbound day to get to my country (Italy) if it means: depart in the afternoon from France, get in an italian city in the same evening and there take a night train to my final destination?Does it matter I don’t activate my pass in Italy?
Serbia (belgrade) to Greece (thessaloniki), possible in one travel day?
Hello, i would like to ask if we can travel from serbia (belgrade) to greece (thessaloniki) using the train that departs at 18:21 and arrives at thessaloniki at 10:08 without using 2 travel days but rather one, is that possible?We are from greece and it is going to be our last train for getting home!
Can we not activate certain travel in the pass ? Are the trains the same price with and without the pass?
I have the global pass so I have 7 days of travel but I would like to travel 8 days, is it possible that I don't activate one of the 8 trips in my pass? If so, are some paid trips the same price with the pass as without? The pass would then be useless on these journeys, so it would be unnecessary to use travel days for these journeys.For instance, if on your 7 trains 3 are on the same price with and without the pass, why take a 7 travel days pass and not a 4 travel days pass completed with 3 online tickets ?
Availability of reservations from PanoramaExpress - Glacier Express
Good day, With Eurail passes in hand I’m attempting to obtain reservations for the 10:18 PanoramaExpress (PE 902) from BRIG HAHNOFPLATZ to ST. MORITZ on July 14, 2023. The Eurail Travel Planner online reads “Seat reservations unavailable”. On the cell phone app it appears that the schedules are not available this far out. “Sorry, we can’t find any trains that match your search.” Three possibilities:I’m too early to make this request. I’m too late and the reservations are already fully booked. I need to seek these reservations through another agency.Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks….Danke!
Does the Global Pass work on Austrian Buses?
I went to the Austrian rail site OEBB and did a search between some smaller towns, and it gave me bus routes instead of train routes. Does the Global Pass cover those buses? It seems they might be operated by OBB or affiliated with it. For example between Oztal and Reutte. (By the way, I did a search from Vienna to Hallstat on the Eurail site and it came up empty, so thats why I started using the OEBB site)

Paris to Nice 8th May
Hi there I am trying to book a train for myself and my partner from Paris to Nice on the 8th of may. Each time I select a time on the eurail site and try reserve a seat I get all the way through to the payment page and then an alert shows saying one leg is no longer available. Have changed times and dates and it happens every time. We have paid for the month travel pass and I am very reluctant to book a full price ticket but I am running out of options. We get into Paris on the train at 10:20 and ideally for straight to Nice. I understand we could book at the train station when we arrive but it is risky there aren’t my seats left. If you can help in any way that would be much appreciated. Thanks
Can i have 2 trains, one to munich, and then another to bologna on the same day, but book this as two trips?
I’m planning on going to bologna on monday. the suggested time in munich is too short, so i want to take one train to munich very early, and then take one from there to bologna. i have to create two trips for that, is that fine or would the first one ( hamburg-munich) already count as inbound ?

Can't book Euromed tickets?
I’m trying to book the high-speed train from Barcelona to Valencia (Renfe Euromed) on July 7th, however when checking all the popular websites to book online (Trainline, Renfe, Omio) there is no option to book this train. I have checked other dates out of curiosity and sometimes the train comes up and sometimes it doesn’t. For example, it is available to book on May 13, but not on May 12 or 14. Can someone please help?
Confusion on Bernina Express Reservation, from chur to tirano?
Dear fellow travelers,As a student from Stuttgart, I'm excited to be embarking on my first backpacking adventure using a Eurail Pass. However, I could use some help with a bit of confusion about the reservation process for the Bernina Express.I've added Chur to Tirano on my pass, and the Eurail website shows that I'm ready to board and can buy a seat reservation if I like, but it's not required. On the other hand, the Bernina Express website states that a seat reservation and public transport ticket are necessary for a fee, which can be purchased up to two months before the travel date. The tickets are not linked to the seat reservation and can be used independently.Now, here's where it gets tricky. Reservations for the day are completely booked, and I'm not sure whether to try and book a reservation or enjoy the journey without one. I've attached pictures of the Eurail and Bernina Express websites for your reference.As seasoned travelers, I'm hoping you can share your experiences and
