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.
I was travelling on the EC310 from Venice to Zurich, however the entire train was told to deboard in Padua and board another to Milan, which I am currently on. They could not give any more information about connecting to Zurich. The only direct train from Milan to Zurich was the EC310 we got off, and the others we might reach in time have multiple connections with short transfers. Does anyone know if they will provide a continuation of our previous train (Venice to zurich EC310 ) once we reach Milan? Or does it mean that train is no longer valid and we will need to try take another with multiple connections. Also will our current tickets be valid if we have to take one of those other trips? Thank you
I’m using my Eurail pass for a trip from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverly on Oct 2 and returning October 5, 2023. It looks like a strike and maintenance will cause “reduced services” and possibly some cancelled trains. I made seat reservations via GWR a couple of months ago for both trips. Typically, when there is a strike or maintenance causing service disruptions, do Eurail pass holders get bumped in favor of ticket holders who have paid full fair? Or can I count on my seat reservations (which were free) to be valid? If the train I am scheduled to take gets cancelled, but there are other trains operating, are my Eurail pass and seat reservations going to help me get on another train or are pass holders out of luck when strikes and maintenance curtail services? I have first class global pass, does that help? Any insights would be appreciated. What a way to start my 3-month journey!
I’m arriving from the Philippines and will be activating my 3-month Eurail pass on Sat. Sept 30 when I arrive. I was planning on taking Thameslink to Finsbury Park Station using the pass, but I am encountering conflicting information from multiple sources that is made more complicated by a strike and “Planned Industrial Action!” on Sept. 30. The Eurail site is showing “EXP” is available from Gatwick to Finsbury. I think “EXP” is the Thameslink, but I’m not sure as Google Maps shows Thameslink and Gatwick Express are different. Google is showing no Thameslink service on this route on Sept 30. National Railway is still selling tickets for this route, but it is via Southern Services to Victoria and then tube to Finsbury (so I take it the Thameslink is not operational on this route Sep 30?). I think I can use the Eurail pass on Southern service from Gatwick to Victoria, but Eurail site is showing “EXP” connects Victoria and Gatwick. This is all very confusing and before I “wing it”
Hello,je voudrais savoir si vous avez l’expérience en voyage familial avec ce pass.Je souhaiterais partir mi-décembre avec mes deux enfants bas âge (5-7) de France, région La Rochelle à Budapest Hongrie et je ne comprends pas trop ce pass: si je l’achète pour une durée de 4 jours / mois (dans ce cas, c’est de 250€) je peux faire les trajets ce que je veux pendant ces 4 jours ? Ils ont noté qqpart que j’aurais même pas besoin d’acheter les billets, mais quand-même la réservation doit être faite sur un site internet, non? Comment ça se passe, cette réservation? Il faut tout faire sur le site d’Interrail? Dans mon cas, notre voyage se fait avec qq escales; La Rochelle - Paris - Augsburg (ou Vienne) - Budapest. Je peux utiliser ce pass en France pour un trajet qui ne quitte pas directement le pays?Merci d’avance pour les réponses!Zoltan.
Hello community !I have one outbound/inbound left on my global pass and I would like to make a single-day trip to The Netherlands from Belgium (my home country) and come back on the same day. All using my last travel day on my pass.Is that possible ?Thanks a lot !Denis
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.
Having so much trouble working out the italian side of things ItineraryRome to Pisa 7th january early morningsame day Pisa to Florence mid afternoonFlorence to venice 8th Jan mid morningWe will be 3 pass holders and two wont be.do te non pass holders also pay reservations or just get a tickettrying to work out what trains run where because there are so many different types and with Eurail passes some cover and some don't. and Reservations are compulsory mainly on the ones we need as we need faster connections and on some they don't however those are slow trainsWhy is there bno system considering this has been a global pass forever almost that we can enter in our train timetable between certain destinations and it tells us what trains are available on those routes and what reservations cost and are compulsory on those routes.Surely im missing something surely there must be some kind of application you can enter in your whole train itinerary and it tells you all the possible connections
Im looking at the trip from Munich to the Zugspitze railway area.I have seen the winter ticket allows a return trip to from Munich for around 70 eurosIs the rail portion from Munich covered on a Eurail pass at all allowing me to only buy a Zugspitze ticket to go up and down using all 3 rail systems which im thinking would be slightly cheaper or is the whole journey not covered at all meaning i have to buy the whole Zugspitze rail journey separately
Hey, I was trying to reserve seats for my upcoming France trip. To do so the rail planner app always transfers me to the eurail website. The problem is: The website wants me to login with „the account I used to purchaisr the pass“. Bit I didn’t buy the pass, I won the „Interrail German French“ pass. So I have no account connected to that pass. If I create a new account with the email address I got the pass send to, the website tells me „no pass connected“ and theres no possibility to connect my app or my pass to it. It also says that it’s not possible to get reservations without a valid pass connected. Does anyone know what I did wrong and how to go from here? I‘m getting a little bit desperate since the trip is very spontaneous and starts soon.
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?
I have eurail global pass and I am trying to reserve seat but it shows not available on eurail website. I tried DB webiste to book seat only and it was showing that seats are unavailable. But, when I tried to book tickets through DB website it says seats are available. How do I reserve seats for my trip ? Sorry, I am new and I did not know that I had to reserve seats few months in advance. Looking forward for your suggestion.
When booking with a global pass for a set amount of times , i see on the dusseldorf to paris Thalys train on Dec 26th that there are 3 different options .standard comfort and premium.I'm assuming the global passes only allow us to book in the standard tickets right.IM also wondering what tickets are we needing to buy compulsory reservations on.Im doing a comparison with my short itinerary as to whether its necessary to only buy single tickets other than a global pass with compulsory reservations. here is my itinerary belowthere are 3 people me and 2 daughters both aged 23/25Dusseldorf to paris 26th Dec 4.17 pmParis to London 29th Dec around 8amLondon to manchester same dayRome to pisa then to florence same day 7th JanFlorence to venice 8th jan mid morningMunich to Zugspitze ireturn , think is a special ticket paid outside the passMunich to Dusseldorf 14th janDusseldorf to amsterdam return out on 15th jan back on 16thI have worked out that the costs are almost similar however im now
