I’m traveling from Barcelona to Seville on Nov 30, 2023 and I’m pleased to see that now I can book AVE trains on the Eurail site. This journey can be completed with a leg from Barcelona to Madrid and then from Madrid to Seville, which is two separate journeys. A few weeks I noticed that an AVE 3940 train runs at 7:32 direct from Barcelona to Seville, but the available dates do not coincide with AVE trains for the 2-leg journey. A few weeks ago, the direct seemed to be available 45 days from the present date, but now it looks like it may have been discontinued after mid-October. I don’t mind paying double, but it would be nice to do the journey on a direct train rather than transfer at Atocha. I’m afraid I may wait for the direct train to be available on my date to no avail. Any insight on this would be appreciated. Thank you!
Hello,I’m looking to prepare my trip with the Germany-France pass but i have a question. I live in France (Nantes) so in order to go to Stuttgart I need to take a train Nantes-Strasbourg and another one Strasbourg-Stuttgart. I was wondering if the nantes-Strasboug ticket (except reservation) is included in the pass like the Strasbourg-Stuttgart is, or do I have to fully pay for it?
Dear All,I have a lengthy night stopover in Marseille - arrive 00:13 & depart 06:33. It seems a very short time to book a room in a hotel so what are people’s thoughts on staying in the station or will the train I arrived on be the same that I leave on so I can stay on it?Thanks, John
Dear All,I am travelling back from Nice on Saturday evening, leaving at 21:37, with a longish stopover in Marseille - arrive 00:13 & depart at 06:33 travelling to Lille Europe where I am taking the Eurostar to London; I have reserved seats.My question is this though: is this one journey, using my pass, or more?Many thanks, John

Hello everyone!We are trying to book a bed reservation on the night train from Karlsruhe HBF to Berlin HBF, dated on the 17th of September (departing at 23:06 and arriving at 7:20). From the Interrail App, I can only book regular seats, while the app itself did show that there were more options (single bed, bed in a dormitory, etc...). In the reservation section, all these options disappear. How can I book a bed reservation if the system doesn’t show them?Thank you for your help
First, the responses I’ve received on this platform have been great and have resolved several seat reservation issues. So thank you. I’m finishing up reservations on my 3 month European excursion and need to book Bordeaux-St. Jean to Paris Montparnasse for the morning of Dec. 13, 2023. Eurail site has and the travel b Europe site, which I think is SNCF, have slots until Dec. 9, and it’s been that way for weeks. I really want to proceed with another connection that evening, but before I book I need to confirm this Bordeaux to Paris leg. I think I saw a phone number, but I’m in Southeast Asia and have Skype, so I don’t know if it will work. Is there an alternative to the methods I’ve been trying (Eurail/Travel b Europe)?
Why is there a difference between the Interrail app and site? I want to take a train from krakow to Budapest, but the app shows: reservation needed. If I go to the interrail site it shows: you are ready to board for the same train.. Is a reservation needed for this trip?
I will be traveling by train in Spain mid-September through early-October. I bought my Eurail pass back in August. I also made reservations for most of the trains I want to travel on using the Eurail website and printed out those tickets. I can see those reservations in my account on my computer under “Reservations Overview.”I just downloaded the Eurail app to my phone and activated my pass. I have some questions about the reservations I made.Do I need to add my reservations to the Eurail app or are the paper versions good enough?If it’s a good idea to have my reservations in the app, how do I add them? When I set up a “Journey,” I select the train I’m going to take as an option and add it to my “Trip.” How do I indicate that I already have a reservation?After I add a journey, I get a message that says, “To get ready to travel, tap to add this journey to your pass.” What does that mean? I haven’t done that yet since I don’t have the reservations included. Thank you for your help
I am an American student studying in Luxembourg for about 5 months in the Spring of 2024. I hope to be able to live in a city other than Luxembourg as I only need to be there 2 days out of the week for class. Paris would be amazing as it allows me to be so close to a major terminal. I know nothing about the train system and how it works in Europe. If I live in a city, for this example let’s say Paris, would it be possible to commute there two days of the week with a Eurail unlimited pass? Do they run often enough for me to catch one twice a day for these two days? Am I going to drown myself in reservation fees or is it similar to NYC subway’s “swipe your card, hop on, and then hop off” system? I also will be extensively travelling with the pass on days I do not have class, using it atleast twice per day, possibly more depending on where I end up. How easy is it to hop on a train and end up in a different country / how much in advance do I have to reserve them (show up to the station or
Hello! I’m trying to book a reservation on a night train from Vienna to Paris (NightJet 468) for the 9th of November, but for some reason, there are no offers available for most of November at all, although there’s at least something for the whole of October.Am I too early? As far as I know, ÖBB usually opens reservations up to 90 days ahead, but maybe this train or this time is an exception. I'm worried that all of November is sold out already, though that seems quite unlikely.Thanks to anyone ready to help out in advance!
Hi !As an Indian citizen living in Sweden with a work permit, along with my husband, we are planning a week-long trip to Germany in December. We intend to visit two or maybe three cities during our stay. Can anyone provide guidance on whether we should opt for a Eurail pass or an Interrail pass for our travels in Germany? Any help will be appreciated !Thanks in advance!
I leave at the weekend and feel a little nervous about using my pass. I have a paper pass, travelling into Italy. Can I confirm, if the train doesn’t need a reservation, I simply write the journey on my paper planner and board the train? I sit anywhere that doesn’t have a reservation ticket on the seat? Is this correct? Also, do I need to validate my ticket? It has the start date on it and is a 22 day pass.
I want to go from Paris to München on 22.09 and I made a reservation on two trains on the app. The first one need seat reservation but when I try to buy it it says “Prices Not Available”. One of the solutions posted said that I could go to the train station, but I’m not even in the continent. Other way was to go to the original train page and buy it there but I can’t find how to buy it from the SNCF.
Hello everyone, I would like to ask on how to use my Eurail Scandinavia Pass (Flexi Pass: 4 days ) with the following dates ( Oct 30, Nov 1, 2 & 3 ). If I activate it on Oct 30 how can I use it again in the date mentioned above and will not continue to count from Oct 30-Nov2 ) 4 days.
Was trying to board a bus from Nantes to NOIRMOUTIER. Interrail tells me the ride is free with the TER replacement bus. However the scanner would not recognize the QR code and, being the last jus, I ended up paying 22 Euro for the ticket. I am still up for my journey back and very much would be interested on how to get a free reservation the bus driver recognizes.
Hey team.I’m trying to book a ticket between Berlin Hbf and Amsterdam Centraal on the 19/11/23, either the 08:33 or 10:33 service.I’m unable to do so through the Eurail website. I’ve also tried OBB and DB sites, and I’ve seen ‘ticket not available’Does this mean the train is booked out? Am I not able to get on this train?Thanks.
Today I booked my obligated seat reservation for the EC (Berlin - Warszawa) and EIP (Warszawa - Krakow). My app says it needs additional supplement, but the women at the service desk of DB said it was included. Is it? Because the site shows it is only included when booked at pkp? If it isn’t can I pay with card when on the train? These extra things are really unclear to me…:/
Hi there, I’m looking to take the train from Berlin to Warsaw in October and I need a seat reservation. On interrail, it says i will receive a paper ticket if I try and book it. The thing is, I’m leaving shortly and won’t be able to receive it before I leave. Is there any way to have it as an e-ticket?Also, I checked on the DB website (the train. company that operates the train I want to take), but I don’t see any option to reserve a seat without the whole ticket (there are still tickets available btw), and on OBB it says “ticket not available”… I would really need a reservation for this specific train and I don’t know how to do it, please help. Thanks so much!
