Trains from Slovenia - Istanbul
Hi everyone. I can´t find a trip from Slovenia through Croatia (Zagreb) -- Serbia (Begorad) - Bulgaria (Sofia) to end destination Istanbul.It doesn´t have to be this exact route. Departure in Ljubliana and arrival Istanbul only are fixed. Is there still this covid problem, that trains can´t pass the border?Or is it a problem of interrail website? Does anyone know more here? Planing this is already quite complicated, which makes me considering doing this trip in the Balkans at all. It seems to be stressful. What do you think? Is it still worth it? Thanks, Laura
App vs Website
WE have booked a number of reservations across Europe on the interail.eu site.However, when I go to the APP where I have added the PASS numbers I cannot see any of these reservations. We are using the same login details.Its as if there is no synchronisation between APP and website. Its very frustrating and worrying as we are supposed ti be travelling in 2 weeks.What are we doing wrong as I cannot take the computer on holiday and will be relying on the APP on my phone.
Rail Planner app + seat reservations for multiple trains on same day
Hello all. I have purchased a 5-day Eurail pass for use in May, and it is now time for me to reserve seats on certain trains that require such seat reservations.I have encountered a problem or puzzle involving booking such reservations through the Rail Planner app.The first day of travel, I must transfer between multiple trains with multiple seat reservations.The Rail Planner app consumed one of my five days for my first train trip, but now it says it will consume a second day for the second train trip, even though the second trip is still on the first day.Should I reserve the second trip or subsequent trips that day directly with the train operator, outside of the Rail Planner app? Or am I doing something else wrong?I was unable to get any help through other means, which brought me to this community forum.Thank you in advance for your help.Regards, Scott

Pass or not pass
To commemorate my 50th anniversary of going inter railing my wife and I booked a months inter railing. We have found the whole thing very complicated and the cost of reservations an unpleasant surprise especially the Eurostar. But what concerns me most is that Im not sure that I can see my PASS. I have an email that gives me our two PASS numbers but nothing that looks like a PASS or a ticket. What do I have to show a conductor??
Zurich - Budapest Overnight Train 2 months in advance
Hello everyone,Me and my 2 friends will begin our interrail on the 29th of April, and we would like to go from Milan to Budapest on a night train on the 1st of May (18:10 until 09:02). From the interrail website we saw that we could get one by going from Milan to Zurich (EC 310) and then from Zurich to Budapest (EN 40467). After buying the interrail passes, the trains say “Prices unavailable”, and after checking multiple websites we still can’t seem to find one to actually book the tickets. Are both trains already sold out? Is there any alternative to get to Budapest?Thank you in advance.
Unable to book TGV 9268
Friends, I’m trying to book reservation for my Lausanne to Paris journey for July 03. This ticket is open and I’m able to proceed with booking on sbb.ch/en website. Eurail website is not allowing me to book the same train (TGV 9268). When I click on more information link on Eurail, it mentions the journey is bookable only 3 months in advance. Can anyone help me on this ?Thank you,Bijoy
Outbound day with connection counted as one travel day/journey?
Hello everyone, I kept reading a lot of documentations and topics here but as it’s still not totally clear (and as I don’t want to risk any problem), I allow myself to ask the question : I’m planning a trip in Italy. For the outbound journey, I want go from Napoli to Paris (where I live).The journey should be Napoli - Torino and then a connection for a second train Torino - Paris. Is the full journey (both trains) included in the outbound day ? Or do I need to keep 1 travel day for this (for the first train) ? Thank you in advance
Calcuation of Child Age
Hi, my self Virat jain.Me, my Wife & my daughter are traveling to Europe with Eurail pass in May 2023. My daughter date of birth is 21/9/2011.

Mobile Pass Flexibility
I will be booking a mobile pass for my spouse and I for our upcoming trip. From what I’ve read here, both of our passes can be kept on one device. How would we go through scanned gates at stations with the one device with both of our passes on it, or would it be easier to have our individual passes on our own devices?When I am booking/reserving trips on my device do the booked trips automatically go to both passes, or do we need to make a separate booking/reservation for each of our passes?
Looking for a Travelbuddy in August - Interrail :)
Hey guys,I am Lena, an 18 year old girl from germany. At the moment, I am traveling (partly) solo through Australia. In the upcoming August, I am going to travel around Europe with the Interrail Pass (7 travel days flex pass) and would love to find a Travelbuddy for that trip. So far, I didn‘t really plan what exactly I want to see, so I‘m very flexible with planning the travel destinations. Some places I might want to explore are Venice, Lake Garda, Turin, Lisbon, Madrid, Split, Barcelona or Paris but I am also open to travel to other destinations. If you‘re interested in traveling together just send me a dm (preferably on insta: @lena.vgt_ as I am more active on there).I‘d love to hear from you,Lena
Brussels to Amsterdam seat researvation 10th April
Hi there I am trying to researve seat on any of Thalysis train from Brussel to AMsterdam on 10th April. However, I can’t seem to find any train on https://www.b-europe.com/EN/Booking/Pass#Outbound for that date. There are trains on 9th and then 11th but nothing on 10th. On Eurail website, I see this. I am sure these trains are not full as on B-europe it tells you what trains are sold out for pass holders. I simply can’t see itin the list.
Hello. Newby here. I read a lot of negative reports about using the pass on trains that need reservations, but on trains without reservations, can I just rock up to the station and go? Surely there cant be Eurail quotas on these trains. Can I just show my mobile pass to the ticker checker?
Eurostar with CIV conditions?
I’m planning a multi-leg trip on one particular day, with the last leg being Eurostar from Brussels to St Pancakes. According to schedule I will arrive in Brussels (from Koln) with 90+ minutes to spare for the last train of the evening, so I expect I will be OK for the connection. I’m aware that in Eurostar terms this might be a tight connection, but it’s a timing I’m happy enough with.However . . . if one of the earlier trains is delayed and I get to Brussels too late, is this covered by CIV regulations? Will Eurostar accept my ticket and/or rebook me for a train the next morning? The information here seems to indicate this is the case, but it’s not 100% clear to me. Plus . . . the Eurostar page covering this is seems to indicate that it’s sort of covered, but not if it involves a connection, which I thought was the whole point of this particular regulation.3.3 If you purchase a ticket or series of tickets which include travel on a service other than a Eurostar train service, the
Do we qualify to use Interrail
We are a US Military family living in England for 3.5 years. We have been here for 2 years. England is our only residence. We have orders from the US Military showing our relocation to England. We have a document from the Ministry of Defence stating that England is our current residence. Will these documents serve as enough legal proof that we currently reside in England? Does this mean we qualify to purchase and use Interrail Global Passes? “Someone” may have gotten excited and purchased the anniversary sale tickets offered last Sommer. I’m really hoping the answer is yes. Thank you for any clarity.
Eurail Global Pass Youth
You sentGood afternoon. I would like to purchase a Eurail Global Pass Youth (7 days within 1 month) for my daughter who will be in Europe from 15th June to 18th July. Can she use the Eurail pass in Denmark? How many train trips can she do? For example if she travels from Naples to Milan and Milan to Venice - can she do this on one day? Can she use as one day??
Interrail Paper Pass Cover 2023
Hi guys,as I haven’t seen yet any photos of the 2023 paper pass cover, wanted to ask if somebody has randomly seen it and if yes, which place is it this year?Last year it was Dinant, the year before Bacharach. Or as the paper pass might soon get scrapped, there’s no new design for 2023?

Cancel ticket policy
Hi!I would like to travel to the UK in May and want to take the Eurostar from Rotterdam to London. I can only see that the seat reservation can be made with my Interrail ticket, but what if I buy the ticket and all the trains are fully booked (since its a busier period). Is it possible to cancel my Interrail ticket in that case?Cheers!
How to make reservations for Spanish trains (i.e RENFE) as an international traveller?
I'm from Australia and planning a trip to Europe in July with 2 of my friends. We are planning to get a train from Barcelona to Valencia, and I was looking at the highspeed Euromed (RENFE) train as it is quick and supposedly scenic.However, I have found out that you cannot make reservations online, so I was wondering how I'm suppose to reserve a seat on this train? Obviously going into the office is not an option as I'm on the other side of the world, and doing it when I get to Europe would be too risky as these trains supposedly sell out fast.I have read that I could potentially call a Swiss ticket office, or that I could call RENFE? However I only speak English, would the phone operator even be an English speaker?I have seen that I can book online/on the RENFE app roughly 60 days in advance, but this is without Eurail discount. Is it worth just doing it like that, or is the discount substantial?Any help would be appreciated as a lot of this is foreign to me and has been a nightmare t
New to Eurail. How to amend tickets?
If I put together a pass for a trip, how do I 1) Upgrade its default of second class to first and 2) select and pay for high speed trains? Do I first pay for the basic pass and then amend it through seat reservations? If so, how do I do this? Will adding class and speed require booking a specific day or can I pay for those things whenever I use thr train for those connections?
Full price on SJ Nighttrain Hamburg-Stockholm
Hi everyone, I want to book a nighttrain between Stockholm and Hamburg. According to the Interrail’s planner, it should be possible (from 39€) but after buying my pass, it seems that there is no day where it is available (always “Seat reservations required from NA”). I try on sj.se too but even when there are some place available, there is no discount with the Interrail pass. Does anyone know how it is possible to book these trains (my pass is useless otherwise) ? Thanks in advance
