Hi there, our paper Global Pass has not arrived, it got to the Dutch border on the 22nd November but then the trail went cold. I dont know what the UK tracking number is, it was due to arrive in early December, and we travel tomorrow evening.Is there any way to contact an actual person in Eurail to try to find out where it has got to? We have pre-bought lots of (often rare) tickets to get up to Northern Sweden, using the pass number we were given in the confirmation/order emails.Can anyone tell us whether if we buy a mobile pass, and then cancel the paper one, we can use the existing paper tickets (bought direct via Eurostar and swedish railways as the Eurail website seemed to fall over lots of time), with the pass ‘number’ listed on the mobile pass? Does the Mobile pass even have a pass number? The paper tickets have ‘only valid with a railcard’ printed on them, but it doesn’t quote a particular pass number. I dont think we’re going to be able to re-buy all the tickets via the app, we
Hello, I am an international student with a Dutch residence permit and a non-EU Pasport. I am thinking of buying a 3-months Global Pass. My questions are: 1. Can I buy the Eurail Pass (not Interrail) with my non-EU Pasport even if I have an EU residence permit? Or am I obligated to buy the Interrail Pass?2. I see that the Interrail pass has the Inbound/Outbound Journey Rule. Does this mean that I can only use the Interrail Pass for 2 days only in my residence country (but in those 2 days I am free to travel as much as I want in my residence country)? If this is true, after my 2 days are gone, does it mean I need to buy a ticket to neighboring-country's border and only then can use my interrail pass again?3. Can I use the Interrail if I travel outside Netherlands and then go back to Netherlands again (since I am a student and have classes) and, after a few days, travel abroad again or is this violated the Inbound/Outbound Rule since I will me using many days of travel in and out of the
I live in Northern Ireland. Given that the whole island of Ireland is regarded as a single entity for Interrail purposes does this mean that a Global pass which I buy would be valid for unlimited travel in Great Britain? Similarly, am I able to buy a Great Britain single country pass (as would be the case if I lived in the Republic of Ireland)?
I am trying to understand what you get with the First Class Eurail Global Pass ticket. We will be travelling from London to Rome via train from the last week of April through to Mid May (a little over 3 weeks). We are going from London - Brussels - Paris - Geneva - Zurich - Venice - Florence - Rome - Amsterdam. We have not yet purchased our global pass, but If we purchase first class global pass do we still have to pay for the standard or first class seat reservations? For example, the app states that we have to pay an additional 44 dollars per person for first class tickets on the Eurostar from London to Brussels. Similar examples of needing to pay for a seat reservation include the trip from Paris to Geneva and all the trips in Italy. If we purchase a First Class Global pass would we still have to pay these seat reservations and if so would they be less than what is shown in the App?
Hi! I am planning to go to Nyons in France from Sweden, with a stop in Switzerland. I will go from Geneva to Nyons on the 23 of January. In the app it proposes to take the bus between Montelimar and Nyons. (In the app it actually calls it train, but when searching for it I am pretty sure it’s a bus.) Since this is proposed in the app, does that mean it’s covered by the interrail ticket or will I have to buy a separate ticket? How does one keep track of what the ticket covers and not? Especially when it seems like the app sometimes calls busses “trains”. Very thankful for some help!
Hello! My family of 4 is going travelling on a London-Paris-Rome trip this summer and I know I need to book our reservations asap. I’m trying to decide on the Eurail Global pass vs. just buying individual tickets. I think all our routes will require supplements on a pass but I’m having trouble seeing how much those will cost so I can compare. (I was able to see what costs are booking individually.)These are our trains:Eurostar London-ParisIntercite nuit Paris-CarcassonneCarcassonne-NiceNice-RiomaggioreRiomaggiore-VeniceVenice-RomeI know normally people here tend to say that in Italy it’s cheaper to go without railpasses, but I do think we are mostly on longer/pricier routes so I’m not sure.Another complication in comparison is my daughter apparently doesn’t need a Railpass (she’s 11) but she would of course need reservations. I assume if I buy passes there is a way to order those reservations but again, I can’t get an estimate.Eurail passes 2nd class are 1064., 1st class 1364., We’d ha
Please help me. I have read the answers to similar questions but they do not help at all with this issue. I have a Global Pass, I have created an account, but how do I get this pass that my friend bought added to my account?Our passes have not been activated yet, my friend has bought the part of the trip that we’ll take together and created it already, with reservations and all. How can I add these to my account and actually get my Pass under my account? Adding the trips to the app was easy, but we cannot figure out how I can actually add my pass to my account.Please, don’t reply with the same answers about reservations. I need my pass under my account since we will not travel the same route in the end. We thought it would be simple for one of us to buy the passes and the first part of the trip, had no idea it would make things this hard.
Renfe has just opened regular ticket sales for the reintroduced AVE services between Barcelona and Lyon and Madrid and Marseille. I have called their customer service and I've been told interrail is valid on those for €10 in Elige (standard class) and €13 in Comfort (1st class), and that I could book these reservations online. The latter I've not been able to find out how, but hopefully the first statement is correct.I suspect these reservations can be made through Renfe's ticket office. Possibly later also through DB (and other channels with access to Renfe's system).Currently tickets on the sections Valence-Nimes-Barcelona-Madrid are on regular sale for just €19, and from Lyon/Avignon/Marseille for €29, so it's probably not really worth to use a travel day for that (unless you have a continuous pass or more travel plans in the same day).
I activated my pass already but I want to refund it because it has been too much of a pain to try to get seat reservations everywhere I want to go. It takes me hours to book any seat reservation. I am okay with getting the 85% partial refund. My pass says I have used 1/15 travel days, though I haven’t taken a single train in Europe so far so I don’t know why it says that. How do I get a refund?
Hello. In January I will spend a week in Bern, and I booked a hotel in the outskirts of the city in Schüpfen, unfortunately right outside the city limits so I won't be eligible for the free Bern Ticket for people staying in Bern.Considering very expensive train travel in Switzerland (more than twice as expensive as here in Sweden!) I intend to buy the Switzerland Interrail pass as I will do lots of day trips by train and I also need to get both from Geneva Airport to Bern and back again by train. Does anyone here know if this pass includes free travel on the S-Trains between Schüpfen and Bern?
Friends, I purchased a 1st class pass. When I go to book a reservation because it’s required, I’m only allowed to purchase a 2nd class reservation. Two questions: Does that mean 1st class is sold out? If so, then how do I request a refund for my pass since I can’t really use 1st class if it’s not available?Many, many thanks!
Hi, I have an Interrail mobile pass for 7 days within one month. The last activation date is 31 August 2022 but I am not able to start my first journey until 20 September 2022. I then plan to complete all 7 days of travel by 30 September 2022. Is this permitted? Or do I have to take my first journey on the date that I activate the pass (ie travel on 31 August 2022?).Any advice gratefully received.
Help! I booked London St Pancras to Lille then Lille Europe to Paris Nord. The Lille Europe leg is cancelled due to strike. What are my alternatives? Can I exchange them? Eurail Pass user. Family of 8. Travel date 27 May
Hi, I want to take a trip to Austria form the end of December to the start of January. So, I was thinking of taking the interrail 7-day global pass. From the terms and conditions, it is noted that the Interrail Global Pass is valid in your country of residence for one outward journey and one return journey which you can make at any time during your travel days. So I wanted to know if the pass is also valid for travel to several cities in Austria.Thanks in advance for your information.Charlotte SAGNARD
I have been attempting to plan train travel (March) in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. I have a EURAIL Global pass purchased. On train routes (Example: Copenhagen to Stockholm) seat reservations required - but they are never available. This is becoming increasingly frustrating to attempt to organize my trip and I am starting to think these passes are a massive waste of money. What are my options? Does anyone have a recommendation on how to proceed? Thank you
Dear Community, maybe someone knows… So we need to reserve seats for the EC from Bern to Milan, at least within Italy. When I enter Domodossola-Milano, it is 3 passengers x 12eur = total 36eur. Makes sense ;)When I enter Bern-Milan (since we don’t want to change seats in the middle of the trip) the price is 135eur!! Does that then include the ride itself - we don’t need a SBB ticket to Domodossola? We have half-fare-card and junior card for the child travelling, I believe the ride Bern-Domodossola isn’t worth 99eur. I tried booking just the reservation Bern-Milan via oebb and sbb, neither offers this... Thank you so much!!
Hey guys, I’m currently on my Interrail (2month from last years sale) and I’m going from Prague to Alost in Belgium.There’s a transition in Frankfurt Hbf between 2:11 AM - 6:28 AM, does anyone have an idea what to do (ideally where to sleep) in that time? Since I’ve heard it’s forbidden to stay in the train station.I’m probably looking for a train somewhere and back or something like that? Would anyone care to share a helpful advice please? Thank you all very muchMatej
Hi, looking up reservations on the Thalys on the EURail site and saw that reservations were required but no sign that reservations weren’t available for passholders. I bought my family EU passes because we are taking the train for several days, and then went back to make the reservation, and it’s no longer available because they have allocated all their seats to passholders. If I had known I couldn’t get a reservation with the pass I would not have bought it! What can I do besides just request refund?I feel like this is a flaw on their reservations page-- if a reservation is not available for pass holders, they should list it on their route itineraries, even if a pass is not yet added to the account!
Hi, I’m looking at booking a 4 day Interrail pass for me and my children who are 10 and 7. According to website this pass is around £220 and the children don’t need to pay, is this correct? Also the 4 days travel will be one day from London to Barcelona, another day from Barcelona to San Sebastián in Spain, another from San Sebastián to Brive la Gallairde and last day from Brive la Gallairde back to London; are all of these routes available with the Interrail pass? Thank you
