To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hello, I am a Dutch student which is going to study in Germany. Because I'm required to do so I will be a registered resident in Germany as well as in the Netherlands. I want to use public transport often when I am in Germany so I would probably like to buy a global pass for the time being. However, I would also sometimes like to travel back to my home in the Netherlands with the European Sleeper nighttrain. Because I am registered in both countries, I would like to know if it would be possible to buy an additional Benelux Pass (as a German resident) and a Global pass (as a Dutch citizen) so that I can use my inbound/outbound trip of my global pass later? I don't know if this is practical, however, I would just like to know if it would be allowed to make a seat reservation at the European Sleeper nighttrain with a Benelux pass together with a Global pass so that I don't have to use my inbound/outbound trip yet.
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?

Hi thereThis is our first time interrailing - my friend and I are in our 60’s and finding it long winded and confusing so I am turning to this community for enlightenment and hopefully guidance! I have booked 2 seats on 14.29 St Pancras Eurostar 25th September 2023. We wanted the earlier train but at the time of booking earlier was not available. I believe earlier is now available but on the Eurorail website where my booking is to be found it says there is no option to change. Is that correct? I find that quite surprising. ALSO ! Having found the night train we wanted Wednesday 27th September Bruges to Vienna 1808hr - 0915hr I go to book it on the Eurrail and no seats are available. Is there any other way to book an overnight couchette please? Many thanks in advanceSiobhan
Hello Goodday.I just bought 4 tickets for my Eurail for 15 days.May I know ,how do I add all the 4 names together and add their details inside the rail planner app, which I’ve already downloaded. I’ve created mine and add my first journey but have not activate yet . As my travel date will be in late November. Please advice . Thank you .
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 :)
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, 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! 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
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 all,I’ve never got an interrail ticket before and I’m just trying to check my understanding of the system.I’m going to Salamanca and back from Stroud in the UK. Am I right in thinking that a 4 day a month pass would get me from Stroud to Madrid, as long as I’ve reserved tickets on each service? (I’ve checked raileurope.com to verify the services exist and line up in a good way). I’m mainly asking as this seems like a cheaper way of travelling than just getting the return tickets. Is that right, or am I missing something?
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.
Hallo, wenn es genügt,den 1. Zug im Mobil-Pass für den Reisetage als Ticket zu aktivieren und ich kann den ganzen Tag damit fahren, warum lese ich dann von so vielen Zügen,die dazu getragen oder storniert wurden. Und worauf lasse ich mir im Bedarfsfall eine Umbuchung quittieren.
I have a 4 day pass that I will be using 3 days of for a trip from the UK to Spain - and flying home. Is it possible to use the final day on the Interrail ticket, within the month, when we have returned, to travel from Manchester to London? Or must I travel out of the UK?I’d like to use it in one day if possible.
