Eurail Not Allowing me to book a TER Train
Travelling from Paris to Rouen, Monday 22nd May. Have Eurail Pass.Specifically trying to book TER 3119 but I have also tried to book other trains earlier and later. Some of them seem to require reservations and some not. (According to Eurail)In each case, when I try to book a one way journey Paris to Rouen on their website via my home computer there is no option to add it to my shopping cart. On the phone app it lets me add the train service to “My Trip”.Question 1 - Does that mean I can board the train?Also, the Eurail website and the phone app both say a seat reservation is required for this particular train. I looked up the train service on SNCF and confirmed this. I also read elsewhere (Seat61 I think) that TER trains are included on the Eurail pass. So that means I can just board the train I presume and do not have to pay any extra (except of course for a seat reservation). BUT - and here is my question #2: How do you buy the seat reservation? You can’t on the app and you can’t v
6 Day Poland only Eurail Pass. Reservations seating together
I purchased two 1st class, 6 day Poland only eurail Passes for my sister and I for travel in August. I have the Rail Planner app loaded on my phone and both passes loaded but not activated. My sister is technocologically challenged. We live in different states and because of that it is easier for me to purchase the seat reservations so that we are traveling on the same trains. Can she also load the app on her phone before we travel so that she can show her own phone with her daily pass? (she is going to visit me soon so I thought I could load it on her phone at that time) I wasn’t sure if it was allowed because it is already loaded on my phone.A couple of other questions-When looking at the https://www.intercity.pl/en/ website to purchase seat reservations it is only allowing me to select one ticket at a time. I select two passengers but as soon as I select Eurail/Interail in the discount drop down it switches to one passenger. Does this mean they need to be booked separately? o
Incorrect timetable - problem with connections
Dear Interrail community, We would like to book train tickets to Edinburgh from Nice (France) on August 04th. The routes are as follows: Nice - Paris (SNCF)Paris - London (Interrail)London - EdinburgWe have already booked tickets for the Eurostar train (Paris-London)For the Nice-Paris route, Interrail has proposed several departure times. We are interested in the train that leaves Nice at 07:57 to arrive in Paris early enough before taking the Eurostar train.The problem is that this train is not proposed on the SNCF website. We read on your website that the timetables may not be up to date on the Interail website. Therefore, the train leaving Nice at 07:57 would not exist. However, how to know if a train will be proposed by Interrail to arrive in Paris with enough time to take the next train to London? Thank you in advance.
Copenhagen-Hamburg : help with reservations
Hello, I am having a problem with a reservation. To go from Malmö to Karlsruhe, I have to take the Copenhagen-Hamburg train at 7:11. Reservations are marked as "non-compulsory", and there are no more seats available. However, I see on the forum that summer reservations are mandatory for this trip. My trip will be on saturday april 1st. What about this date ? THANKS ! :)
TRIPS ON PHONE APP AND COMPUTER LOGIN ACCOUNT DON'T SYNC?
I hope someone can help me hereI have started adding trips to my pass on the phone app. When I log in to my account on my computer I don't see these trips. Does this not sync?Do I need to re-add the trips manually so I can view them clearer on my laptop? This seems rather strange?Sarah
From Patras to Athen
Hello We want to travel from Greece to Italy this summer. And for this we’ll buy the 6 days pass. But to us it is not completly clear how we can travel from Patras to Athen. We know that there should be trains or busses and this tranfer is inclused in the pass. But how does this work? Where can we see where and when these buses and trains depart? Do we have to make any seat reservations? Is the pass (what has been filled out for the ferry) enough to board the train / bus or are additional forms needed? And for travelling back from Greece to Italy, does it work the same way?And another question: would it be cheaper if we just bought the global pass and would buy the ferries to the islands and to greece seperately? Thank you for your answersKind regards
Strikes in France - compensation from SNCF for flight?
I have seat reservations a train from London to Paris and Paris to Barcelona tomorrow. Due to strike action in France the train from Paris to Barcelona has been cancelled.As this is the start of my trip, I am going to have to fly from London to Barcelona and then continue my Interrail journey from there.I have filled in the Interail delay compensation request form online in the hope that they will refund me for the seat reservations and the lost travel day.Would it be possible to get a refund from SNCF for the last minute flight from London to Barcelona? If so, how would I contact them?Not a good start to my trip (especially as I wanted to avoid flying!)Thanks in advance for your help.
How to get Reservations :)
Please read first and if you still have questions start a own topic to keep this post as Informationpost as clean as possible. This post is made by @rvdborgt @AnnaB@runner.on.rails and myself. Planning/Timetables:Many of you will notice that the Railplanner of Eurail will have sometimes different times of the trains as other Websites/Apps. Or evenworse the railplanner wont show any train for your desired Route. The Railplanner of Eurail only shows the timetables that are shared by the Railcompanies unfortunately not all Railcompanies share these and even update it not frequently. The Result is that the Railplanner of Eurail is not always uptodate and because ofthat I and other experienced travelers recommend to use the Local Websites and Apps to check the times and even book the reservations with them (when possible).Below here finally the main words :D Hi if you are useing a Railpass there will be the point that a train needs a Reservation 🙂 Many of you ask where to get a reservatio

issues booking london to Edinburgh
I have some issues with booking a ticket from london to Edinburgh on the 24th of june. Is it because those tickets simply aren't available yet? Also why can't you get the reservation on the interrail site, do you have to do it on another site? And if that's the case how do i select that i already bought an interrail and only need a seat reservation. Hope somebody can awnser me with this since im very new to this and could use some help.
Hi!Me and my friends are planning on Travelling in may. We are thinking of starting in Greece, and maybe go the the smaller islands there or to just stay in Greece and travel around there. Then we are thinking of taking the fairy to Italy and from there go to Schweiz and Austria or maybe France and Spain. Im wondering what kind of pass would fit best for this? I have checked the global pass but the problem is with Greece when you only get 30% discount on the ferries and I realized that the ferries are pretty expensive. The boat trip from Greece to Italy isn’t included in the global pass right? We don’t want the train tickets and boat tickets to become too pricy. Is it worth having a global pass when going to Greece? Or is it better to just buy ordinary tickets for this trip? Do you have any tips and if you have taken the ferries in Greece, what did it cost for you?
advice wanted about the lack of trains between Istanbul, Sofia/Plovdiv, Thessaloniki, Skopje, Belgrade (Nis)
Hi there, I am travelling for 3 months (unlimited travel days) with The Netherlands as starting point, and wanted to go to the balkans/eastern Europe.However, when looking up trains in this area I can barely find any unfortunately. Ive seen some other topics from a while ago about this too, but I find it hard to figure out what I need to do/conclude from it. Is it better to just not go there at all as you need to take busses a lot (and those are not covered by interrail)? I’ve also read some things about there being trains in serbia and North-macedonia but just not internationally registred so it’s hard to know what the schedules are. Are there alternatives that are worth it? F.e. I saw that Romania is accessible still by a night train from budapest, and that it is possible to go from there to Sofia and then a train to halkali (Istanbul-west). Is this doable? Sorry if this is a bit vague but im new to this and really struggling with planning my trip.Thank you in advance for any help!
EuroCity seat reservation not available
Hi all,Recently purchased the Eurail Pass and can’t wait to visit Europe at the end of this month. I have added the mobile pass to m phone and got the trip set up, the QR codes even shows up already and all the travel day has been used. However, I have few confusions:There are few trips that requires seat reservation, one of them is for the trip from Switzerland to Milan using EuroCity train. Went through the OBB ticket site, the trip seems to exist but it said that the ticket is unavailable, what does this mean exactly? No more seat left? Or it’s just that it’s not available online? Do I have to book directly at the station? What happens if till the end I didn’t manage to book a reservation? Will I still be able to hop on the train and just sit randomly or will I not be allowed to board at all.Thanks and hopefully this is not a duplicated question.
Have Interrail prices been reduced?
At the end of November 2022 I received a promotional email for Interrail. It advertised a 20% discount. That seemed like a great deal so I bought a couple passes.Currently I can purchase the same passes without a discount for about €115 less than I paid then. Has Interrail reduced their prices?
URGENT: no confirmation of global pass but credit card was charged
I cannot see any email confirmation of my global pass and there is nothing in my order overview as well. However, my credit card was charged for this transaction. My trip is in a couple of days and I URGENTLY need the pass in my account or a refund so I can repurchase. This is such a HUGE stress on my trip and a massive inconvenience. PLS HELP!
Welchen Code muss ich beim Generator Hostel für den Rabatt eingeben?
Hey,bei Interrail steht, dass man mit einem Global Pass 10-20% Rabatt für den günstigsten Preis bei Generator bekommt. Allerdings ist die Möglichkeit des Rabattes nicht mehr bei den Vorteilen in der RailPlannerApp angegeben, außerdem hat es auf der Website von Staygenerator nicht mit dem Code Eurail20 geklappt. Habe ich etwas falsch gemacht? Gibt es Änderungen?Danke!
Eurail Question from Paris to Luzern
I booked reservations from Paris to Luzern. It's three legs - Paris to Mulhouse, Mulhouse to Basel, then Basel to Luzern. When I bought the ticket on Eurail, the reservation on the ticket only said it was to Mulhouse. However, when I look at the ticket on my eurail account, it says "ready to board" for those last two legs. Just concerned my ticket does not reflect all of the way to Luzern.
