Travelling in country of residence
Hi there, I have a global interrail pass and am wondering about my outbound/inbound journeys, where my country of residence is UK.The 5th of April is my outbound/first date of travel.I have a reservation to go from London to Paris on the 5th of April, but I live in Glasgow and so have to book a ticket first from Glasgow to London on the same day.Will both journeys be valid as my outbound travel day, or can only 1 journey be used on the outbound? thanks, hope i haven’t worded that too confusingly?!

Reservations made, pass activated, impossible to find it again. I changed phone
Hello,I made a trip and reservation after I had activated my pass, on the app Rail Planner.I change phone since and now I started my travel but I can't find again on the app all my trip and reservations. I'm really worried...If I try to put the pass again in the app, it tells me that the pass was already used. I can't find how to connect to my account and my first train trip is the 26/11, so very soon.Someone can help me please ?

Paper ticket reservation by mail delivery but traveling in 3 days
Hey,I start traveling in 4 days and like to book tickets for a seat reservation in a TGV train. When I tried to book the seat reservation on the interrail website I saw it is only possible to buy a physical ticket which means I must be delivered by postman in 3 days. That's risky.What should I do?

Santa Claus Express
Hello, I'm a bit stuck. We are flying into Helsinki on the 7th December and we want to catch the Santa Claus express that evening to Rovaniemi. The prices are Eur 49 p.p for a deluxe double sleeper cabin. havent been able to reserve online so I called the Eurarail help line. They can book me in but I'm confused as the prices are Eur 180pp now.Does this sound correct, as it's now cheaper to fly then take the train.
London to Paris on December 16th
Hi all - looks like there are no seat reservations available from London to Paris on December 16th. We can go any time on December 16th, or any time after 5pm on December 15th. We have 2 Eurail global passes and have managed to reserve all other trains. Are there any alternative routes? I’m looking for other options than the $260 ticket from Eurostar :(
Linking accounts and tickets
I bought the pass through another site.I'm currently traveling and would like to make a reservation for a train, but the app doesn't display the reservation button.That's why I want to book through the website instead of the app.However, web reservations require me to have a pass and be logged into my account.So I just created a new account.However, I don't know how to link the newly created account with the pass I purchased on another site and have already started using.How can I connect in this case? Also, how can I make a reservation for the train? I'm sorry if it's hard to read because it was written mainly using a translation app.
Confused about the use of trips. I have a 2 month pass and have created a trip which I intend to share with my wife. However, I intend to make another shorter trip independently; the app has a + feature for multiple trips, but will not allow me to connect the new trip to my pass ( only option is connect to paper pass?). What is going on? Can I create and connect multiple trips in app or not?
Reservations and Place of issue on UK passports upon reservation purchase
Help for a newbie please :) I am trying to book reservations for our upcoming trip and have got to the 'Place of issue - city' box on the interrail reservation system. On my passport, this is listed as IPS, and my partners says HMPO. I understand this is standard on UK passports. Should we enter this despite it not being a city, or try and find out which office issued them?
is £3000 GBP Enough for 2 months?
Hello!I am a Scot with a budget of £3000 GBP prepared for a 2 month trip this coming summer starting in June (this is after buying the pass). Would this be enough?For context - I go through Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest which I know are pricy but I will be spending most of my time throughout Romania, Bulgaria and the Balkans.Any information would be helpful in helping me get the most out of this, thanks!
Adding travelers to my trip in the interrail.eu website
I recently bought 8 passes in 2 separate orders and I have 2 trips in my account in the interrail.eu website (that were created automatically). (I am NOT using the Rail Planner app) What I want is to merge those 2 trips into 1 so that I can have all 8 travelers in one trip.I tried to do that by adding travelers to one of the trips, but I always get the error “Your Pass cover number doesn't look right”. I have tried there the pass cover number I see on the back of my pass cover, which starts “I” followed by 8 digits. I also tried the order number that starts with “IN”. Both have failed with the same error.My question is: How can I add all the travelers to 1 trip in your website?Can it be that 1 traveler can only be in one trip? For solving this I tried deleting one of the trips but the website does not let me do that :( Can someone help me achieve what I need? Thank you in advance.
Unable to search schedule/add journey to app
Hi, I've been traveling in Europe for about 2 weeks now with a 3 Months Eurail global mobile pass, everything worked fine until last night. I was trying to search for a journey in the rail plannner, but after entering the stations the app keeps getting stuck loading loading the schedule. I am thus currently unable to add any trips or obtain the ticket QR-code. I've tried the following: (a) Using the app both online and offline, both with and without location services enabled(b) force stop the app and clear the cache( c) restart the device(d) Searching for the train journeys under “stations" (this wont even attempt to load anything). All of this produces the same error. My next step would be to clear the app data and/or reinstall the app, but as far as I understand this will remove the pass from the phone entirely. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I would also have no problem adding my journeys manually, but I haven't found any way to do this without the schedule loading. I'v
Using Global Pass or buying local train tickets in Spain?
HI everyone,I am taking my kids to Europe this summer and am trying to figure out whether to get the 10 day or 15 day pass. We will be starting in Spain and heading north. We plan to stay in Madrid for 8 days, and I would like to take day trips to some of the nearby smaller towns. I’m wondering, in your experience, whether it would be better to buy the 15 day pass and use those extra days for those day trips or if I should just buy the local fares and stick to the 10 day pass. Everywhere else we travel, we will be with family or friends so train travel is only needed to get us to those next destinations, not travel in and around the other cities.Thanks so much for your help!
Open access and sub contracted operators - a growing problem for Interrailers?
Is the low-cost plane model is coming to a railway near you, to compete with or even replace National operatorsThere are now 2 new competitors to Renfe on main routes in Spain, part operated by Trenitalia and SNCF.SNCF now operate some TGV routes as Second Class only Ouigo brand ( via a shell company I believe).I have read of some trains in Czech Rep (I think) operated by Arriva.Most of us will have seen Italo trains in Italy.And so on…..Many of these are outside the pass network .and offer low cost fares.Many of these are owned at least in part by national operators (SNCF even operate in France as a competitor to itself).Most, if not all, of these do have alternatives in the pass network, but is that enough to keep us interrailing?For Newbies this will cause even more confusion, getting worse not better.For regular interrailers, particularly those who like to go in a free from schedule way, is it an issue that you are finding causes you problems.Or is pay as you go rather than interra
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.
First timer - help with exit from UK!
Hi,We bought the 7 day pass on a bit of a whim and are now thinking over logistics. Considering possible taking it down to a 4 day trip instead with us paying some tickets ourselves We are travelling with an 8 and 10 year old and coming from Glasgow. My initial idea was Glasgow - London - Paris on day one but it’s going to be quite a long day so I’m trying to think of alternatives but not sure I can or if I’m picking up the pass rules correctly. I’ve put in bold the days I’m questioning:Idea 1 - reducing down to 4 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Get the Eurostar (we would pay the Eurostar trip as it’s not much more than the seat reservations would be anyway). Day 2: Paris to Black Forest Day 3: Black Forest to Paris Eurostar home to London where we would stay a night or so Day 4: London to GlasgowIdea 2 - keeping 7 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Day 2: Get the Eurostar to Paris Day 3: Paris to Black Forest Day 4: A stop somew
Trajet pays de résidence
Bonjour, J’ai acheté le global pass 3 mois, comme je dois l’activer de suite avant la date d’anniversaire. Pour l’activer, je compte faire un aller retour à Paris - Londres du 1er avril au 3 avril. Est ce je peux utiliser à nouveau le pass par exemple au mois de mai pour faire Paris-Milan ?
Seat reservation EC Bern-Milan - 135eur for 3 passengers???
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!!
