To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
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.
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!
What can I do in this situation?We are travelling from London to Geneva via Paris in October.We initially had a 79 minute changeover in Paris, where we had to get from Gare du Nord to Gare De Lyon (by the RER) - plenty of time.Eurostar have just written to us and changed our departure time from London, putting it back 30 mins, and with slightly longer travel times, we now have a 40 minute connection time.I tend to be pretty blase about these sort of things, but even I’m a bit nervous about making the connection on time.Am I able to request a change to an earlier train out of London to ensure we make the connection (at no cost)? We’re 6 weeks out from travel.
I want to get a 9 a.m. train to Paris from Interlaken on 19th September but I’m getting a message that it is “Not in the Pass Network” (see first attached screenshot). Could this be because the engineering works between Interlaken and Spiez are still incomplete and a replacement bus service is still operating? Or is it due to some other issue, in which case what options are available to me?Also, in connection with this same journey, and specifically with the 12.50 Strasbourg to Pars leg of it, I’m getting notified that “Seat reservations are required” but adjacent to this message is the word “FREE” (see second attached screenshot). At the risk of mockery, does this mean that I must obtain a reservation but that it will cost me nothing, and if so, then what do I need to do and where do I need to got in order to obtain the seat reservation?I am travelling on a 1st Class Continuous Interrail Pass, valid until 10th October.
Me and my friend sent our seat reservation tickets to our hostel in Krakow and they were supposed to arrive on the 16th of September. But apparently they arrived today (8th of September) to a post office (UP Krakow 1). Since we don’t arrive in Krakow until the 23rd of September we won't be able to pick them up before they get sent back (within 7 days). Is there some way we could change this or send them to another adress? We need help!
I was wondering whether it would be necessary to book trains in advance if we were planning to be traveling in March/April. We are okay with needing to wait a day or two to catch one and would rather have freedom during our trip. We are flying into and out of London and planning to spend time in France, general Southern Europe with maybe some side jaunts into Eastern Europe. Trip time is two months. Thanks the help.
Hi everyone. We are from a country in Asia, our Europe trip will be in November (me, my husband and our 3yo son). We have read so much information about Eurail pass, all the positives negatives related to train travel but still we are interested to try this kind of sustainable mode of travel. And yes, we feel like we are still lack of insight 😅So this is our plan:We will reach UK first, and on 10th November we plan to go to Bruges (quoted from railplanner: London - Bruxelles Midi 1104-1405, change trains 24 mins, Bruxelles Midi 1429-1530). Would the change trains of 24 mins doable, with the walking distance, passport control, check-in process? How about delayed trains, how often is it happened for Eurostar London-Bruxelles? Spend 1 day there, and go to Paris on 11th Nov (quoted from railplanner: Bruges - Bruxelles Midi 1209-1308, change trains 13 mins, Bruxelles Midi-Paris Nord 1321-1444). Again, is it possible for us to change trains in 13 mins? Travel to Iseltwald Switzerland on

Hi, We are from India. We will be travelling to Amsterdam (2 adults and 1 kid (7 years old)). We will be taking the train from Amsterdam to Paris / Paris to Lourdes / Lourdes to Munich. We need your advise on which pass to buy and train options? Would also appreciate if you could guide us on the seat reservations and how many days in advance do you need to reserve the seats. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Charmaine Ross
Hallo, ich verstehe das Inbound und Outbound immernoch nicht. Ich habe noch 2 Tage guthaben und kann noch 1 outbound und ein inbound machen. Kann ich beim inbound im Heimatland fahren soviel ich will, wenn ich dazu einen Tag hernehme? Also mein Nachtzug kommt ja nicht in meiner Heimatstadt an sodass ich noch einen weiteren Zug nehmen muss um nach Hause zu kommen.Geht das? Bitte nur Ja oder Nein antworten.
Hello Friends, I’m travelling solo this November and Paris will be my base. I’ll visit Paris for a few days and then return to the same city at the end to catch my flight back home. Now, I’m planning to travel to Interlaken to visit Jungfraujoch and the nearby villages and then proceed to Rome for another few days. I have a total of 3 weeks and I believe visiting the aforementioned three places would be easy [earlier I thought I could go to some other city too, like Munich/Barcelona for example]. I understand the below is possible but does this plan sound good, or could you please suggest a better idea as this is my first time visiting Europe?Take train from Paris to Basel [using 4 days global flxe Eurail pass] and then take local train to Interlaken. Purchase single day pass to Jungfraujoch [expensive but I’m not buying Swisspass as I’m just spending 4 days in the country with not many visits to mountain tops or intercity travel]. Take a local train to a nearby city like Bern/Spiez a
I've bought an interrail pass by mistake. 7 days travel in 1 month. I should have got a Eurail pass. I'm a UK citizen. I've made reservations on a number of trains including Eurostar and Glacier Express in Switzerland. Pass not activated yet but 1st journey is this Saturday!
Hi Everyone,New here and embarking on a solo trip this October. Learned about the Gotthard tunnel delays and was wondering about the impact to my Milan-Zurich train on Oct 31st. From Zurich I have a sleeper to Hamburg with a 90-min connection time. 3 Q’s:I booked my ticket in May through Trenitalia (it was the lowest fare back then) so a deeply discounted fare. Will Trenitalia change my ticket free of charge, if I ask, as the tunnel blockage will likely mean my connection time will be reduced by 60 min now due to the re-routing? On the Trenitalia website, when I check my ticket, it still shows the original arrival time. Does this mean that the train will still go and arrive as planned? Should I do nothing, and change the ticket if needed, on the day of?thank you very much. :)
I have a First Class Interrail Pass though, when I booked Eurostar seat reservations via SNCB, only Standard and Business class reservations were options on the screen. I booked Standard ones (as Passholder seats were disappearing quickly) though want to change to Standard Premier seats that are covered by my First Class pass, even paying a small upgrade charge. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to do this via Eurostar/Interrail/Eurail/SNCB. Currently there are no spare Standard Premier seats left on my outbound journey, though there are on my inbound one. This forms one of the reasons I bought I First Class pass. Any suggestions please? Thanks.
Hi! I have a short question. I am currently on the sleeper Warsaw-Prague (IC407 till Bohumin, then another number because the wagon joins another train, arrival Prague at 7.32) The conductor wanted, next to my bed-reservation, the mobile pass as well. I can’t give him my phone for the entire night (it’s locked anyway). That means, according to the conductor, that I have to get up at 02.00 in Bohumin, to show the new staff my mobile pass…. Does someone know how to prevent this so I can just sleep through the night? Thanks a lot!
Hi everyone, I hope to travel with my husband and two young kids from Basel to Milano and I'm trying to figure out how to interpret all the info regarding the Gotthard tunnel. Does the train from Basel to Milano (transfer at Bellinzona) also go through this tunnel? The schedule, shown below, shows the delay after Bellinzona, but isn't the tunnel before this city? Also, SBB advises (https://news.sbb.ch/artikel/124161/entgleisung-im-gotthard-basistunnel-alles-was-sie-fuer-ihre-reise-wissen-muessen) to travel via Zuerich (quote below), but isn't that the same train that ends up going through the tunnel as the one from Basel to Bellinzona? I hope someone can shed some light on this for me. We're actually travelling the night before from the Nederlands to Basel and hope to travel from Basel to Rome the next day (hence my questions on the Basel - Milano stretch).
Hello. We will commence our journey in a few days and are trying to print out our necessary documents, including seat reservations. This is the first time I’ve used the Eurail FlexiPass, so please bear with me if I ask some rather obvious questions. After several rounds of email, I was able to determine that in order to board a train on a travel day, we need to generate a QR code for that day, and to present our seat reservations (if seat reservations are required). What customer support did not answer was how early we should generate the QR code? We want to do a bit of a dry run before commencing our journey. We already have an active travel day, when we are travelling on the Eurostar. We already have both e-tickets and seat reservations for this leg of the trip, but we do not have e-tickets for the leg after the Eurostar. If the Eurostar travel day is over a week away, is it too early to try a dry run fo generate the QR code for the leg without an e-ticket? How do other travel
