Do I need to print a "Print at home" e-ticket in Italy?
..and if so, how?Me and my girlfriend have Interrail passes and we are going from Florence to Venice tomorrow. Frecciarossa operated by Trenitalia. We made reservations and it clearly says that the tickets need to be printed and in "physical form", otherwise we could be fined. We have the PDF-files with the PNR and QR-code. Do we need to print the ticket and if so.. can we print it at central station in Florence? Thankful for your answers.
Extra travel day needed due to delay
Hi! I am travelling from the Netherlands to Sweden and back with a friend, but we've had a lot of delays on the way. We've missed several transfers and now we have to stay the night in Stockholm and have to travel an extra day to reach our destination in Härnösand. However, we didn't plan for this and I would now be one day short for the trip home again. Does anyone know if there is any way to fix this, or if I can somehow get an extra day?
Mobile eurail pass - reservations in app
I bought a mobile eurail pass on Nov 20 but apparently the pass is being shipped to my place in the US; since I have to leave on Dec 12 I’m concerned that the pass may not arrive in time. There is no number to call, the chat is useless and so is the website if you need to clarify things about your pass. Who do I turn to to have them email me my pass as I had originally requested when I made the purchase? Overall, a very bad experience.
Save some Reservations with spare routes or avoiding the highspeed services

I will share some examples :)Amsterdam - Brussels Reservation free Intercity instead of expensive Thalysreservations. Time loss of 1 hour and arround 30€ saved.Brussels - Germany Take the Reservation free (4€ Reservation possible) ICE to Cologne/Frankfurt instead of Thalysreservation no big time loss but saved arround 30€Brussels/Ostende/Antwerp - Paris Take one of the few TGV´s or even more cheaper take a IC/TER to Lille and from Lille a TGV or IC to ParisParis - Germany Take a TGV to Strassbourg and then with a Regionaltrain to Offenburg/Karlsruhe and from here plenty of connectionsFrance - Switzerland Entry via BaselTake a TGV domestic till Strassbourg/Muhlhouse for (Basel/Zürich) and take there a Regionaltrain to Basel and from there any train to y
Which are the corresponding 1st classes in Italian trains?
Hi all,I am thinking of buying the 1st class Interrail ticket for Italy. Does anyone know which class it actually corresponds to in Italian trains? As I can see some Trainlines offer classes like premium, business and executive.Or does the 1st class Interrail ticket make you eligible to book any of those classes and the difference will be evident in the reservation fee?Regards, Maroben
Is the date of activation the start of pass validity?
Hi there! I’ve just purchased a 10 days in 2 months global Eurail pass and am nervous to activate it using the app as I’m unsure about the validity period and when that begins. Does it begin the day I activate my pass, or the first day of travel? Thanks!
Trenitialia first class rules
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.
Swiss Travel Pass or Eurail Global Pass
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
How to validate the mobile pass ticket?
If I am traveling with a 22 day (consecutive) E pass that has already been activated--I want to board a train from Amsterdam to Prague that does not require a reservation: What do I have to do? Can I just board the train? Do I need to enter trip data before boarding?Same question if seat reservation is required. What do I need to have on my phone at boarding?Pass is 1st Class if that matters.Thanks for the help, really excited to travel again, but this is the first trip with a pass, and it’s also multiple people. Guessing when we arrive it will make more sense, but sitting in Phoenix, Arizona, it’s pretty confusing.
I'm taking a night train home. How to avoid the app is selecting not only inbound but also the outbound journey?
Hi everyone,I’m planning my first trip with an Interrail Global Ticket and I need some advice.My country of residence is Germany. I’d like to travel back with an over night train from Rome, which ends in Munich, but I have to switch trains then to get back home.I thought I can just use 2 travel days for this on my pass, but the app doesn’t allow me to select the the journeys because I “already used my outbound travel”. I have enough travel days left, but unfortunately I have to switch trains after midnight. Do I have to purchase another ticket to get home?Thanks for your help.
Thalys Trains are available on their website but not on interrail?
Why is that?I’m trying to book a ticket from Amsterdam to Paris which is in over 2 ½ Weeks. And Interrail does not allow me to use ANY of the reasonable thalys train times, despite me spending 250€ on this pass.There is still plentiful options avaiable on thalys’s official website – but I would have to spend the full price to make use of it! Plus why would I even consider buying separate tickets if this website brags about their partnerships with thalys and after I spend this much money on a pass that doesn’t serve any use.The fact that this company seriously expects me to spend 140€ on another seperate ticket, making the pass 100% useless is completly ridiculous and I am not recommending this do any of my friends after this trip is over.

Are seat reservations included with the 1st class Pass?
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 :)
Difficulty with the Eurail Eurostar booking process
I bought a Eurail Global Mobile pass recently, I’m having a lot of issues with Eurail's Eurostar booking process.On May 16th, I tried to booked London-Lille Eurostar seat reservations for two people for June 3rd on https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/. I paid for the ticket and the charges are fully processed (not pending any more) on my credit card. However, I do not see the reservation tickets on my account https://www.eurail.com/en/my-account/reservation-booking-details/my-itinerary, nor have I received any confirmation email. It’s not clear to me whether the ticket was actually booked, and this is putting me in a limbo because if it’s not booked, I would need to book other options (e.g. flights) as soon as possible. I contacted Eurail customer support about a related issue (#163688), and they mentioned “I can see that a pre-reservation was made for London-Lille on 03/06.” However, I still do not see the London-Lille seat reservations on https://www.eurail.com/en/my-account
Eurostar Problem with seat reservations
Hi community, I bought a mobile global Interail pass a few days ago and since then I have to say my experience with Interail website and customer service has been completely awful. I was first able (after experiencing many problems with Interrail website though) to book my first trip: Colmar (France) - London. Unfortunately after that it has been impossible for me to buy my second trip on the website: London - Bern on the 31st of July 2022 or even only London - Paris via Eurostar.The website says ‘prices unavailable. Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservations’. I have been checking now for many many hours and days and it is still the same.I have to add that before I bought my pass I was able to check the prices of these trips and all on their webiste, so I really don’t understand what is going on now. Then I wrote Interail customer service several times from last Friday and still got no answer from them. I have been looking on forums and websites for hours
Night train Amsterdam Zurich not visible in Eurail app
I have bought an online Eurrail pass and I’m travelling from Amsterdam to Zurich. On the Eurrail planner website I saw there is a direct train going from Amsterdam to Zurich (depart 20:28 and arrive 08:39) and it says that I can board that train and don’t need any reservations for it. However, somehow this train does not show up in my interrail app, so I cannot add this train to my trip. Does anyone have this same problem? Or know how I can still add this trajectory to my trip? Or does it mean that I cannot take that train?
How do I reserve seats? Why via direct train operators? What is the use of the pass?
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
How to book Nightjet from Vienna to Munich?
Hiya, we are planning to take the night jet from Venice to Munich on 31st May. I tried to book on Oebb but all the fare showing tickets not available. (I have tested with several dates) I also tried to book on Eurail reservations, there was no option of booking seats reservations either. Does the Venice to Munich nightjet open to Eurail pass holders? Thank you 🙂
Reserve seats in Spain
Hello,In 2020 I won 2 interrail tickets. Unfortunately I got diagnosed with cancer shortly after. Treatment was long, and the consequences quite bad. So we still did not get a chance to use them.Now I have simplified a travel route, because with my phisical dissability and all the cancer treatments, I cant do a lot anymore. The plan was to fly to Malaga from NL on the 5th of March. Then 3 nights there, then the train to Barcelona on March 8th, 5 nights, and then the train from Barcelona to Paris on the 13th of March. And then back to NL. Ive read we can only book when we are on the station. Will 3 nights before be enough for Malaga -Barcelona and 8 nights before enough for Barcelona - Paris?Due to my condition, its not really possible to be flexible. So I kinda have to know if we will get seats on those trains. I really cant find anything that can tell me its going to be ok. If not, we will have to cancel these plans once again. And my tickets will no longer be valid. Thank you in adva
Clarification on the 4-day Greek Island Pass
Hello,Slightly confused about two things, if someone can help..First, I see posts from 9-10 months ago saying how you need to reserve a ferry ticket through email. Is this still true in 2022? There are online ferry websites of companies that cover the pass that offer tickets where you can enter a discount if you have Interrail pass, directly while buying the ferry ticket (like 20-30%). However, I didn’t see the option for the travel day pass discount.Also if someone can answer, this page here says that the 4-day travel pass only cover “Four FREE domestic trips” for Blue Star Ferries, not 4 days. I’m not sure which is true, or if I’m reading it wrong or if it’s a typo.
