To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hi!I am going to travel from Sweden to Germany and the UK in December-January. It seems like an Interrail pass will provide more flexibility and less costs than booking with the separate train lines, but I have a few concerns regarding this. First, I would still have to book seat reservations to be sure to be allowed on the train (in most cases, especially from Germany to the UK?) Second, seat reservation tickets for UK trains will be posted per mail which means I cannot be spontaneous about the exact date, and I have to book and receive these tickets before I leave for Germany? This seems to make it rather inflexible. (And I read about a nightmare scenario where one customer had to buy a full price UK Eurostar ticket despite having an Interrail pass!) Then a few other questions. Can I expect discounts on most regional buses? Would I need to buy a completely new pass / separate tickets if I notice that the period of time / number of travel days won't be enough? Does December-January us
Hi all,I’m a German student residing in the UK on a tier 4 student visa. Over Christmas, I want to travel to Germany (and some other countries) using an Interrail Global Pass. When booking the ticket, the form asked for my country of residence. My residence country is the UK, yet, I read in the T&C that I would need to prove my residence at some point. As an EU citizen, I only have digital proof, an e-visa, to prove my residence in the UK. I also have an official document from the German authorities confirming my de-registration from my old residence and indicating my new residence in the UK. However, I don’t have physical proof from the UK authorities of my residence. In related threads, people suggested setting the country of residence to the country of citizenship (in my case Germany) instead. However, I want the one outbound and one inbound journey to apply to my actual country of residence, i.e., the UK.Has anyone dealt with a similar issue and found a solution? Thanks!
[Emergency] Paid for mobile eurail pass, but didn't receive the confirmation email and cannot find any orders in my account
Dear eurail support team,@Nanja @Leo @Annie. (Our trip will start in 2 days!) We paid for the mobile eurail pass 8 hours ago (around 14:00 UTC, 11/16) using the debit card.Still we did not receive any confirmation email. Besides, any orders cannot be found in the account information.. However, there is a confirmation that we already paid for the pass by the history of the debit card. Would you check what is the problem and what we should do? When you contact me (DM?), I can give our eurail account and order details, SIncerely,wj777
As on https://www.drehscheibe-online.de/foren/read.php?030,10260330 a woman who’s working for SBB reports, they will sell only the digital interrail pass from 01.01.23.People who want a paper pass, will be forced to order it (and not get it anymore immediately at the station!) and pay extra fees for this.Is this going to be the same in whole Europe or is only SBB starting to do it like this?
Hi, I am wanting to reserve a seat on the 15th Jan from Zurich to Zermatt. I was looking for advice on how to make reservations on the Swiss trains. I also wanted to check as this route has one change at Visp for only 6 minutes - is this enough time to change trains?Cheers,Hayley
I originally reside in Korea, and currently in London for travelI booked a ticket from Paris to Barcelona with a eurail pass even before coming to UKThe ticket was to be sent as a physical one, so I asked my airbnb host of where I'll be staying, that I could use the address of the place for the delivery and keep my physical ticket until I get there in person, which is this upcoming WednesdayThe delivery came but my host couldn't access the package, even though I stated my host's name and address very clearly when I made the reservation from eurail websiteMy host said that I need to make a document of power of attorney to the France post office, and we didBut my package got "went back to the sender" right after the POA document was systematically accepted, so my host could not get the physical ticket from the office for meAnd I was told this fact only from my host, never from Eurail nor France post office Has anyone had a same/similar experience?Does anyone know how to solve this kind o
After reading many posts from newbies asking whether a Gkobal Pass was cost effective I put my mind to my experience this year with a First Class senior 10 day in 2 months GP.As a numbers nerd I wondered how my travels had worked out, so I did a worked example based on the same trains but about a month from now and with a pass bought today. Choosing a midweek day (Wed 14 Dec) I did a small spreadsheet of individual journeys and first class saver (No flexibility), first class advance flexible, same for second class, and pass at todays prices and reservations. The details are below but simply put:Pass costs (First Class sen and reservations - at todays prices) 581 euro.Lowest cost saver tickets - 1050 euro Pre-paid flexible tickets - 1726 euro So savings were at least 470 euro pp but against flexible tickets the saving was over 1000 euros.For those wishing to analyse further here are the workings:All prices are from normal operator sites.The Trip involved these travel days and their prep
I currently reside in the USA (Texas), I have a Texas Drivers License but I have a UK passport not a US passport. Looking to travel throughout Europe this holiday season and came across the Eurail Global Pass. Would I be able to use the Eurail Global Pass given that I live in the USA, but have a UK passport?
Since many of our train reservations must be made on individual train systems websites in each different country, there doesn’t seem to be a provision on their sites to include the Eurail pass and adjust the ticket cost. Does this mean we have to physically go to a station or ticket office to get the correct price on tickets?
Planned a 3 day trip from Sheffield (UK) to Frankfurt and back with a stop over in London. I am due to travel today and have just activated my pass only to be told that I have to leave the UK and return to the UK in single journeys.I have accidently used today as a travel day and I can’t undo it even though I have not travelled yet. Obviously I wish to pay for my Sheffield to London train separately and use the pass for London to Frankfurt. Eurail have no phone number so now I don’t know what to do. Any help appreciated! Many thanks,Gwilym
Hello all! Would you like to share your experiences with me regarding interconnectivity in Europe? How well are different countries and cities connected? Have you had any trouble reaching certain destinations? Were the trains you wanted to take always available or not? I am working on a university project hand I would love to speak to someone who can tell me more about their experiences. What made you decide to take the train rather than some other form of transportation? What are obstacles you faced with the railway system in Europe? And what could be improved in order for you to have a more pleasant experience in the future?Please let me know if you would like to share your experience with me. We could chat or do a (video)call. I also speak Dutch and German if that is more convenient for you than English. Thank you!With kind regardsChiara Kok

Hello! First time using Eurail and traveling between UK and Europe next year and have been watching many Youtube videos and reading posts but I still want to make sure I have everything planned correctly. I am having a little trouble making sure I am doing it right since some of the journeys are not showing up past December 10th, 2022 on the app. My itinerary is as follows: My partner and I have 2 global 7 day 1 month mobile passes.First trip: March 31 2023 London St. St Pancras - UtrechtI have purchased 2 reservations for St Pancras- Rotterdam already, but my question is when the train schedules become available on the Eurail app, I just add the journey to my pass from St Pancras to Rotterdam and then add a journey from Rotterdam to Utrecht? Is that all I need to show when I go to board? Do I just show my ticket on the Eurostar app and my Eurail mobile pass to board? Second trip: Nightjet sleeper train from Amsterdam - Basel (I bought these tickets separately since I couldn’t find any
Hi guys, there is a train line R3 from France to Spain: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R3_(Rodalies_de_Catalunya)I would love to use that train to go from Paris with the night train to Latour-de-Carol-Enveitg and from there to Barcelona.Google finds the R3 train, but neither the interrail.eu nor the RENFE websites finds the train.https://goo.gl/maps/618FbdJdyV3df1wn6Do you have an idea where I can reserve a seat?
Hi,Everytime I try and make a reservation I am able to select one but then immediately taken to this second screen (as seen in second pic) with no option to add item to cart. It seems to do this with every option I choose!Also, not sure if I’m just being entirely stupid (most likely! 😅) but are you able to book and pay for reservations via the app or do you have to go to the website? I am currently doing it via the website as there is no option to do so on the app.Thanks in advance :)
