Get ready to travel
To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
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
Hello all,My son and I have just successfully negotiated a trip combining our interrail pass and SNCF & Eurostar reservations to visit Nice in order to attend a match in the Rugby World Cup France 2023.The most pleasing element was the journey from Marseille to London St Pancras via Lille Europe which required reservations on the TGV & Eurostar but only used up one day in the pass. The Eurostar journey back was one of the two journeys that the pass enables one to take form or back to one’s home country - in our case the UK.I am really grateful to all of those people who responded to our requests for explanation and information on how the card and its combination with reservations works; they made a huge difference. Thank you all very much.The app worked very well for us and we took and used printed copies of the reservations for TGV and Eurostar reservations. I had the PDFs in my emails and would have been able to access then if necessary.Best wishes, John
I'm currently on the Trenitalia TPER 3910 from Ancona to Piacenza. You can find it on trenitalia.com and www.lefrecce.it websites, but not in the RailPlanner, DB (Deutsche Bahn) or Rome2Rio apps. This is crazy frustrating, and makes it so difficult to plan ahead. I got to know about this train at the Ancona train station, 2 minutes before departure, and I caught it 5 seconds before it left the platform.
I chose a 7-day Global Eurail Pass, which is called “Budget” (other options were Economy and Premium, the latter lasting a month). I selected the upgrade to first-class. When I got to the Add to Cart screen and later screens, the text said “second class”, though the price remained at the first-class price.This is very confusing. I can’t tell what I am about to buy. Why is an option listed as first class only to change to second class?
Hi all. Please help us to decide which train schedule is better for us as we travel with toddler. We plan to leave Brugge on 11th Nov around 9am. Previously we got suggestions from this community to take IC from Brugge to Kortrijk, Kortrijk to Lille Flandres, then take TGV from Lille Flandres to Paris, as it would be many available seats from Lille Flandres and reservation fees much cheaper But so far we checked the schedule from Rail Planner App or Belgian Train website or SNCB app or DB Navigator app, these app show that we must take Brugge to Bruxelles Midi, then take Thalys from there to Paris. If we edit the options by putting via Kortrijk or via Lille Flandres, these apps keep pointing out that we must go to Bruxelles Midi to go to Paris, resulting 4 to 5 change of train. We prefer max 2 change of train and hope to reach Paris around 1 or 2pm.We are so confused now. Please advise.
I confess I did not expect most of my trains to offer reservations only on paper. I only finalized my plans a couple of days ago and now am trying to reserve trains beginning about ten days from now. So I have not left enough time for paper reservations to be shipped to me here (US).My trip goes to five cites in five countries. I am only staying a few nights at each stop. It seems too risky to try and ship my paper reservations to my hotels - the timing is too tight. Any delays and I will miss the shipments.If I go to the carriers’ websites, some do not ask if I already have a Eurail pass, and want to charge me for the trip in addition to the reservation. So that doesn’t seem to be economical.Already I am seeing that some trains I was planning to take show no reservations remaining (on the Eurail planning site). But this may only mean that the Eurail website cannot determine availability.Once I arrive in Europe, is it possible to book seats for international trips (Denmark to Sweden, C

My family and I are taking our very first International Trip to Denmark and Sweden this year. We arrive on December 21 and need to go straight to Gothenburg, Sweden for our reservation at Liseberg Hotel. Where do we go for the train once we land in Copenhagen Airport? How far in advance can we book?
Hi All, I am travelling from Brussels to Paris tonight and I didn’t realise that a seat reservation is required. I thought Eurorail pass holders doesn’t require reservations. Now I got to know that all the seats are fully booked. Is it possible for me to travel without reservation? The officer told me that I have to take another ticket for travel by standing which cost 134£ per person. How can i use my eurrail pass for this trip?

Haré un viaje junto a mis amigas para navidad (París - Bruselas - Amsterdam - Alemania - Suiza - Italia) y me pregunto si está permitido usar el pase intarrail dentro de los países, por ejemplo, si puedo ir desde Bruselas a Brujas y Gantes con ese pase, y si también está incluido el Bernina Express. Gracias
The information on the Eurail website says that you need to print emailed reservations. I won’t have a printer with me while traveling. Will I be able just to show the email instead of printing it?I’m new to the forum, so have been trying to catch up on the topics concerning other travelers. I was disappointed to see that experienced travelers recommend using other sites to make reservations. I was hoping that Eurail would be my “one stop shop”.
Hi, everyoneUnforeseen train delays: What are my rights as a Eurail pass holder?"I've been experiencing frequent train delays during my Eurail journey, which has caused disruptions to my travel plans. I'm seeking advice on my rights as a Eurail pass holder and how to navigate these situations effectively.
I am planning an Interrail trip in 2022. I will buy a senior Global pass and intend to visit several large cities in Europe. My question is to help me with my budgetting for the trip. Please could someone tell me if a first class senior global interrail pass entitles the holder to complimentary food on the trains and or eurostar- perhaps on some trains and not on others? Or how to find this out. with thanks
I am traveling from Florence to Rome airport via Roma Termini. I have a business class Eurail pass and business class seat reservation from Florence to Roma Termini on Train Frecciarossa 9391 tomorrow. I will connect to RV4624 at 13:20 in Rome to Rome Airport Fiumicino. My Eurail account says I am ready to board but I do not know if I have a seat reserved on this leg. Please let me know.
I’ll be traveling from Zurich to Munich via rail soon, and I was wondering if I could use my Swiss GA Travelcard along with a Eurail Germany Rail Pass to complete my journey? The website says travel is only covered to Basel with the Eurail Germany Rail Pass, but could I use my GA Travelcard to cover the travel in Switzerland then use the Eurail Germany Pass to cover the border crossing and Germany travel? Thanks in advance
Having just bought a pass for the first time, I tried to find a journey within my home country for the first day of my trip but it said no trains found. There are loads of trains from my town to London where I want to pick up the Eurostar, found the latter no problem. So why is it not showing trains to London, as I’m entitled to one journey in my home country at each end of the trip? And would I be able to use the pass on a train on that route anyway? Thanks for any help.
We are a family of four, two children aged 8 and 11 and two adults. We wanted to take an Interrail trip, excited about traveling by train and trusting that it would be pleasant and fun. How wrong we were! Our experience has been horrible. We have taken 8 trains and we have had delays in 5! the shortest 45 minutes, the longest 160! Because of this we have lost the link with the following trains, so we lost the seat reservations we had in first class. Result: on one occasion we had to travel in the train bar, on another we had to spend the night (9 hours!) in a seat despite having reserved beds. I insist: with two small children. If you don't trust our words, take a look at Interrail's compensation policy: they do not compensate any delay of less than 60 minutes. Because? obvious: because there are so many, they would lose money. And the biggest delays equally at ridiculous prices. But that is not all! Changes in train schedules without prior notice, mistreatment by train and station sta
Hi, this may be a silly question but I will be taking a train with my pass from Amsterdam to Lille in October. My train from Amsterdam to Bruxelles doesn't require a seat resveration nor is one available to purchase, but the connecting train from Bruxelles to Lille does require one. If I buy the seat reservation for the connecting train how do I ensure the first train won't be fully booked that day ? And what happens if I pay for the reservation and then the first train is all booked that day?
I booked a seat on the NJ 468 for the night train from Vienna to Paris. I hold a Global Pass second class pass and was not guided to the seat type at the time of booking and paid an additional $23.44 to reserve a seat. Are these seats sleep cabins? Or is it another type of seat?
Hello, we were recently on a train that was delayed 2 hours.original route was marseille → Montpellier → Barcelona, with all trains being run by SNCFDue to the delay, we were instructed to get off af Narbonne, where we were to wait for the next train to Barcelona.the next train that came was a Renfe train, where the inspector didn’t let us on because we have SNCF tickets.We are now waiting an extra 2 hours for the next SNCF train to take us to Barcelona, where we will arrive 5 hours later than scheduled.Would it have been possible to get our tickets transferred to Renfe tickets? Or do they not transfer across companies. We just decided to wait and now feel that we have missed out on arriving slightly closer to our scheduled time. thanks for any help
