I have the eurail pass connected to S10, but I have not activated, as I am not travelling for a number of monthsI wish to make a trip for each day I am travelling by train on the 2 month pass - e.g.1 day Munich to Hamburg. 2 day Milan to Rome, 4th day Rome to Florence, etc . I read that i cannot create several trips for one pass.
Train journey not showing on my S10 android
I have a eurail pass. It is not activated as I am not travelling for several months yet. I have purchased a reservation on my laptop a eurostar ticket. The booked train journey shows up on my laptop when I go into my eurail site, but it doesn’t show up on my S10 android Eurail app. What do I do to have this on my mobile phone, as this is what I will be showing the inspector
Superfast ferries Italy to Greece. I read it's free but I only get 30% discount
I’ve read in multiple places that Global pass holders can travel between Italy and Greece for free on Superfast ferries (plus the fuel charge). However, whenever I’ve tried to book a ticket, I’m only able to get the 30% discount when I click on the Eurail discount. Is there any way to purchase a ticket where I get the full discount/I’m only paying for the fuel charge?
Planning Trip versus Activate Pass/Travel Days
Hello, As we start planning our trip for end of year through London - Paris - Chamonix - Milan - Venice - Florence, and while reading the posts in the community I am getting more and more concerned about how this Global Pass will work (or not work).I do not get to understand the process of getting a Pass, Activating the Pass, Planning my Trip in Advance, etc. It seems like I cannot book/Purchase my trips (for each segment) way in advance, is that correct? For example, I am trying to get the times for the trains from now (to travel between Dec 26th and Jan 03rd) and they are not available. Does anybody know when those times will be available? I need to make sure I have accurate information for example about trains on December 25th and January 01st.How far in advance do you (experienced travelers with Eurail) think I could/should get my tickets/trip booked within my Pass, to avoid shortage of availability or other issues being end of year and maybe less trains running, weather affecting
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
Costs for changing Eurostar tickets - help
Can anyone help?We have booked Eurostar tickets using the Interrail discount and now (long story) we need to change the date and go a week later.Everything I’ve read says it’s 15 euros per ticket to change and that should be 60euros for the 4 of us. It even says the same on the confirmation from when I bought the tickets.I’ve gone to exchange them online on the SNCF website I bought them from and it’s saying it’s 200 euros to exhange four tickets from London to Brussels. It would be cheaper to scrap them and start again!I’ve checked the train and the interrail pass holder seats are still showing at 30Euros each.Can anyone shed any light? I’m relucatant to call because that seems to cost extra?
Hello!I am visiting Europe from Canada, and travelling from Dortmund, Germany all the way down to Interlaken, Switzerland. I then plan on travelling East to Austria, to Innsbruck, a small town called Kufstein, and Salzburg. I am asking for confirmation that the Eurail pass (15 travel days within 2 months), works in most major train stations in most cities. For example, the Netherlands uses the NS system to travel by train. Does the Eurail pass work here too? I just want to ensure I can travel city-to-city through multiple countries by using the Eurail pass, and not needing to use local train cards like the NS system. Thank you for your help!
Search function in railplanner App doesn't work
When I search for a train station in the railplanner app to add a journey to my mobile pass, the search doesn't give me any results of trainstations I could add. I didn't do that at the beginning of my journey. And now I'm stuck and can't add any more journeys.Has anyone any ideas what I could do?I also have no results if I choose only one train station that is in the list of already searched stations to show me the connections from there. Please help me out! Thank you so much!

According to NS International Interrail is not valid anymore (even with seat reservation) on the ICE from the Netherlands towards Germany between 6:00 and 16:00, during the summer months (17 June - 18 August). 🤐 During the period from 17 June to 18 August 2023, Eurail and Interrail travellers cannot use the ICE International trains towards Germany with departure times between 6am - 4pm from a station in the Netherlands. Even with a separate seat reservation, travel on these trains is not allowed for Eurail and Interrail travellers during the specified period.

Booking wheelchair seating allocation.
Hi community. I am trying to work out how to book a wheelchair seat for our daughter who is travelling with us in March.There will be three of us travelling, my wife, myself and our disabled daughter.The main trains I want to book the wheelchair seat on is the Eurostar from London to Bruxelles-Midi and also the TGV from Bruxelles-Midi to Strasbourg. I have no problems booking assistance and have downloaded the Eurail Passenger assistance and mobility services document. It is just the seat reservation for a wheelchair I cannot find an answer to.I have read several question people have posted, but none seem to have the answer, just references to the assistance document.Hoping someone can post a clear answer for me and anyone who is trying to find an answer for this in the future. Thank you for your time.

Traveling with family
I will be traveling with my wife and two children this Summer. What is the best way to handle tickets/passes? I have the Rail Planner app on my phone and passes for each person. It seems like I need to create one trip per pass? Also, is a “trip” one train ride or can the entire three week visit be a “trip”? Thank you.

Travelling with husband and teenagers one device all passes
Hi Rookie here from NZThank you in advance for your time.I’ve bought 4 passes 1 adult, 1 senior 2 x youth. Youth are 16 and 13. Is it better to have all 4 passes on my device? If husband puts pass / app on his device how do I share the bookings with him? Likewise with the teenagers? Would you also have the teenagers have the passes on their phones or on my phone? Is there a way he doesn’t have to sit and input all the journeys too? Also if I have the passes on different devices how do I make sure we are all sat together when I book seat reservations. Finally do stations have ticket security barriers? How does this work if we are all on one device? Is there a separate gate we need to go to? I appreciate your advice. Thanks from a Kiwi
eurostar to rotterdam and amsterdam
I accidentally booked tickets on Eurostar from London to Rotterdam instead of Amsterdam. I can’t change without cancelling the non refundable tickets and can’t seem to add a destination online by managing booking (noting the train stops in Rotterdam). Is it possible to just stay on the train for another stop? Can I amend it on the day?
