Hello Inter/Eurail community,I am posting this from a train that is currently traveling from Vienna to Dortmund. I just found out (purely by chance, as the rail planner app doesn’t show this), that the train I was supposed to take from Stuttgart Hbf to Bruxelles Midi runs only until Köln due to a strike. On the Deutsche Bahn website it says that there will be 4 replacement buses from Köln Hbf to Bruxelles Midi without any stops. Apparently these buses are a service by Univers Reisen but I can not find any information about them, no timetables, ticket costs, anything.I have two questions. Firstly, is this because these replacement buses are only meant for people being affected by this now interrupted connection? Secondly, is my global pass still valid on these replacement buses, and if so how do I add them to my pass since I don’t even know the times (yet).There is an alternative route that requires me to take 4 additional connections, something I would like to avoid if I can.Thanks!
Hi, I understand that I can travel outbound and inbound in my home country. In my case I would have to take a big detour to be able to reach the border of my country by train. Would that be problematic?And would I have to cross the border on the outbound day? Or could I also travel to the border and buy an ordinairy ticket to cross the border the next day?
Hello, I have question about the manual reservation for an interrail ticket.I have 7 travel days for one month and some journeys are not shown, so I have to do it manual. And at the end, it is not shown on the map. Furthermore, I do not know which train I need to take because if you make the reservation manual, the app does not show which train you should take. I do not know what I need to do and if the manual ticket would be valid. Did someone has a scandinavian journey with the interrail ticket? If yes, I would be happy to hear about that moreHere is an example for a manual ticket reservation:

Hello!I am unable to book a train from Milan to Tirano on our Global Pass on this site. It is only showing trips of 7 hours via Switzerland with numerous stops. But when I go to Rail Europe, there are direct trains from Milan to Tirano (2.5 hours). Why can’t I see this direct train on the Eurail site?I don’t want to book on Rail Europe and get charged as we have the Global Pass and travelling within Italy should be freePlease adviseTania
Hi everyone,My family (2 adults, 2 children) and I already have Eurail passes but unfortunately I’m not an experienced Eurail traveller, so I apologise in advance if this is a silly question. We have already purchased and activated the Eurail pass for two days of travel earlier in December.We will be travelling from Vienna (Wien) to Prague (Praha) on Saturday 30 December 2023, preferably leaving around 10am. From what I can see, most of the trips listed on that day have “Reservations unavailable”. My question is: can we just go to the train station on the day and use our Eurail passes to book whatever seats are available, or does this mean that there are no seats available on those trains anymore?Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!Kind regards,Rob
no problem to find trains from Tropea to Villa San Giovanni and from Messina Maritime to Palermo. But when I try to book a ticket for a passenger on the ferry between Villa San Giovanni to Messina Maritime, I get constantly for all ferries “a fully booked” reject?? From early in the morning till late in the evening, on working days and during weekends. Can somebody explain to me whether it is necessary to make a reservation on those ferries? Is capacity on those ferries a regular problem?
I am after a little help to make sure I don’t mess up making my first, and most complex booking. I have ordered, but not activated, a Eurail 1st class pass with 15 days travel over 2 months. The booking I want to make is:Prague to Zurich night train (the one via Austria)Departing May 9, arriving May 10, 2024I want to travel in the same compartment as my wife.I am unsure of the cost or options available.I’d like to have a private ensuite, toilet at least, if it’s not overly expensive.We’d prefer a two person compartment, without sharing with strangers, if that’s not too expensive.I would like some guidance as to which web site to use to make the booking, and ensure I chose the right train, the one via Austria.Also, how do I ascertain the costs of the various options?Thanks in advance for your guidance.
Arriving in Madrid by plane, and from there head up the coastline to Barcelona by train WITH LUGGAGE. I need your help, the more detail the better. Will be traveling with family (multiple ppl); all travel to begin in Oct and end in Oct (1 month). Thanks in advance.Madrid to AlicanteAlicante to ValenciaValencia to BarcelonaBarcelona to PenedesPenedes back to BarcelonaBarcelona to TarragonaTarragona back to BarcelonaWhat trains do I take to each city? Is Eurail the best option? Is luggage acceptable and/or added cost? How soon shall I make the train reservations? What is considered reasonable train fare? Appreciate any information you can provide.
I have a trip starting in 10 days. The guide says try to book trips weeks in advance. My pass activated starting on travel day. I keep trying to schedule my trains to get my ticket on app and keep getting “Sorry we don’t have train times for these dates yet -...”. It seems they only have times for about five days out right now (Germany). Has anyone else navigated this issue and what did you do? The recommendation and the capability of the app are at odds. The app is also very buggy (crap) and there does not appear to be good clear consistent guidance and no support.I don’t mind doing it at at station while traveling but I’m hearting the trains are really full this year and if i dont get a reservation early i may not have a seat. traveling with 4 people through 3 countries (Germany, Austria and Czech Republic) between Dec 12 and Jan 1 with 4 people. Have Global ticket 1st class 5 days.
Hi,Received this today and apparently I'm not the only one. This is a big communication error, is there are a plan to send a correction email ? @Camilo. @Mukhammad My passes are not expiring any time soon.- bought in January 2023, used in July-August- bought in November 2023, not yet activatedI'm sure this will confuse a lot of people who might opt for a refund right away.
I’m trying to identify the best way to get from Florence to Lugano in Switzerland at the end of May 2024 utilising our Global Pass. Using the Eurail trip planner it takes almost 8 hours to complete the journey. The planner takes us on a magical mystery tour via Milan, Domodossola and then Locarno before Lugano. Using the Orario Treni app it takes exactly half the time via Bologna, Milan and then direct to Lugano. The problem with the Eurail planner appears to be the leg from Milan to Lugano. What am I doing wrong?
Hello! I have 3 first names on my passport, one of which is a middle name (mothers maiden last name). As the first name box when getting the passes has a character limit of 20, I couldn’t fit all of it. Would that become an issue with identification purposes boarding the train?Thank you
Hi guys. I know this question has been asked several times. It has been answered through this forum that the Eurail Global Pass does cover the Tirano to Milano Central services by Trenitalia Regional train (eg Trenord 2827). The issue is the above service is not listed in the Rail Planner apps. Kindly please help me on how to book the Trenord Tirano to Milano Central journey via Rail Planner apps. I will travelling there above route before this coming Christmas. Thanks guys.
