Child Global pass bought when 11, now 12. Reservations on Trenitalia list old Global Pass number
We booked a set of Global 2 month passes including for our 11 year old. We’ve worked out that when we activate for day 1 of travel she’ll be 12 so are planning to buy a new flexi pass “10 days in 2 months” (we also worked out we all don’t need 2 month continuous passes but that money is sunk!) . Reservations already made on this site, especially Trenitalia show the Global Pass number in small print at the bottom. Does this matter, or are we ok provided we show a reservation and a pass in the same name? I can’t imagine how i would re reserve the same seat...
This area of Sweden is difficult to navigate (travelling from Finland to Sweden April 2023)I can’t find train times in Rail Planner app, only in Norrtåg timetableshttps://www.norrtag.se/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/Tidtabell_Lulea-Boden-Haparanda_Norrtag_Vinter-22-23.pdfHow come they are not in Rail Planner?BW, Nanna

Summer Trip from Prague (or Ústí nad Labem) to Zürich with Global Pass
Hi there! So, me (Student, 23) and my partner (29) want to travel with the night train to Zürich this summer. We are trying to find the best deal and the interrail Global Pass seems like a great option, however, the information is very unclear and I cannot find any verified information (besides the map, which does not confirm if the night train is appliacable) , so I figured I could ask you.😊Can the global pass be used from Praha hl. nádraží (or Ústí nad Labem hl. nádraží) to Zürich Hbf, with no transfers? (we would have to book the sleeper extra, I know that). We would prefer to travel with the EC 458 Canopus (Praha - Dresden - Zürich), but if the only supported route is EC 337 Jižní expres /EN 462/EN 466 (Praha - Salzburg - Zürich), we could take that as well. What trains can we travel with in Switzerland with the same global pass? I have found this map (https://cdn-doc.myswissalps.com/docs/default-source/rail-network-maps/eurail-interrail.pdf), but I would appreciate a list of poss
Cannot get seat reservation for Rotterdam - Antwerp Sat 22 April
Trying to book the ‘reservation needed’ leg (Rotterdam to Antwerp 9.58 train Sat 22 April 2023) of my Leiden to Bruges journey. Eurail site says no reservations available and can’t get any further with later trains (won’t go to ‘Make Reservation’ option). Tried direct with Thalys, but they are not showing the 9.58 or indeed any other departures at all. Are there alternative ways of finding out if indeed reservations are all taken, and what the alternative options might be? I’m a newbie (last interrailed in 1974) so just trying to work out the system… Thank you.
Greek Island Pass or Global Pass
Hello, I would like to explore the Greek Islands with Interrail. For this I found the "Interrail Greek Islands Pass 6 days within one month". However, I would like to travel longer than 6 days in total. I come from Germany and would like to go to Greece via Italy with several days stopover.Unfortunately, the Greek Islands Pass only includes ferries to Greece and the islands, right?Is the ferry trip from Italy to Greece and the domestic ferry trips included in the Global Pass?Can I also use all international and national ferry connections with a 15 day global pass without additional costs?Can I then also use the bus network in Greece with this ticket? Thanks, Maike
Paris to Geneva
I bought 4 days eurail pass and this is my first trip to Europe. When I am trying to reserve seat from Paris to Geneva, it says around £102 for 2 kids and 2 adults. But if I check other website then tickets are cheaper for same route and same train. What is the benefit of eurail pass if reservation takes more money than normal ticket.
Paper Ticket, Mobile Pass from Germany to Poland
Hello,We are five students who have the Global Pass and want to go to Poland from 23th to 26th of March. We have seen that we have to book a seat on 2 of the trains that we want to get.The problem is that the web page only gives us the option of delivering the tickets to us by post mail and even doing it more than two weeks in advance, when we enter our address (in Germany) the web sais that they calculate that the tickets will not arrive on time.What can we do about it? Is it possible to ask someone to scan it for us to print it? Or send it to the hotel that we’ll be guests at?
Are reservations linked to a pass number
Hi, I accidentaly bought the wrong pass so I’ve bought a new one and I’m currently waiting for a refund on the old one.I noticed, when booking my seat reservations through the Interrail site, that it does not ask for a specific pass number at any point. Are seat reservations linked to a specific pass number or are they just linked to my account/my name? I’ve already purchased one reservation and I’m worried it will be linked to the pass I’m waiting to be refunded and not the new one.I’m starting my trip in just a couple of weeks so I’m anxious ro make my reservations but not sure if I need to wait until my old pass is refunded.The reservations I’ll be making are on the eurostar from london to paris and in france.Thanks

New passport and Paper Pass
Hi all, as I read on the page, I see I can change my passport number on the mobile pass, but what if we have the paper pass, and will get new passports?Will there be any problems (germany, greece, italy) travelling with a paper pass with a wrong passport number? We can bring the old (and new) passport with us. Best regards Karina
Changing from paper pass to mobile before activation: finding it hard to get a response
I bought a paper pass last year timed for travel from 9 April this year. Special 50% deal offered at the time. Pass not yet activated. Issued by ATOC. However I now realise a mobile pass is likely to be easier, particularly as I’m travelling with someone who has a mobile pass. I’m going round in circles trying to find someone (other than chatbot which couldn’t answer my question) to tell me if this is possible and how it can be done. Any suggestions, or do I stick with my paper pass?

Dual Citizen (EU and non-EU) residing outside of the EU - What pass? What passport to use? What proof of residency?
Hi,My husband is a dual citizen (SWE and PH), and we’ve both been living in the Philippines.We’ve read the rules about getting Eurail vs Interrail passes but we’re still a bit confused and want to be sure.I’m certain that I need the Eurail pass as I’m not an EU-citizen nor resident. But which pass should my husband purchase? If he buys a Eurail pass, can he still use his Swedish passport to travel between countries? Reason I’m asking is a Philippine passport requires visas while his Swedish passport does not.And if he does purchase the Eurail pass, what type of “proof of residency outside of EU” is acceptable?Thanks!
Booking on the trainline itself
Does it matter that I can’t book on the Eurail pass site and therefore can’t see the trips on my pass app? Both times I have booked a night train.The first from Berlin to Budapest we had to have a seat reservation and booked it through OBB using our pass details. Then the second, from Amsterdam to Zurich, showed it was available and included but wouldn’t let me choose it to make the seat reservation that was recommended - ie my cart was empty. So I have also booked on OBB. Just wondering if it matters that I can’t book them on my pass. Or if I am doing something wrong/not seeing something obvious in the process.Thanks, any help appreciated!
