Change to earlier Eurostar train
I have contacted Interrail for changing to an earlier Eurostar train at the same time. However, they have not responded, is there a way of changing the ticket? How does Interrail respond fast? Also, can the starting date of an Interrail Pass be potentially be changed to a day earlier?
What is difference between reservation recommended against required
Hello.. I am new to this eurail website and I started planning my travel and I saw in planner in mobile app I turned on filter for No seat reservations required and searched for travel from kopenhagen to hamburg. In the results I get I see high speed train and one IC train and it says the reservation is recommended.I want to know is it just a suggestion or I have to do reservation in that case?
Missing train connection in the interrail app
Hi, we habe a mobile pass and we planned our trip with the train connections of the deutsche Bahn App. The Problem is that the train connections that we planned with aren’t existing in the interrail app. Now we want to activate our pass but we have to add our train connections that aren’t existing here. Can we use the train connections of the deutsche Bahn App for our mobile pass because only with them we can visit the places that we would like to visit. We also saw that Deutsche Bahn and interrail are cooperating partners so it would be possible right?
"Something went wrong" Error when trying to add my pass to Rail Planner

Also tried to restart my phone, re-installing the app. I had an iPhone some months ago and I thought that maybe on that device will works, but neither this. I don't know what to try more and technically I’ll travel within 6 days, on 16 August.
Night Train Paris to Salzburg
Good evening, I am sorry to disturb, I can’t find a way to connect Paris to Salzburg with a night train (I want to start my trip in the end of june)I’ve seen that I need to book the Asutrian Website, “OBB”, but there is no one way trainI thought it was possible to do Paris - Vienna with a one way train (no need to change the train, and with bed and without stopover), but the better way I found was Paris - Linz/Donau Hbf, and then I needed to change my train to Salzburg (friday 24th of june).I’ve also seen that there are just 3 days of night train from France to Austria, I hope you can help me,Thank you very much !
How far in advance should I get to the station and do trains have a limit on number of people they allow?
I’m interrailing in May-June time and wasn’t planning on booking reservations when they’re not required. On the rail planner app it says the train times, for example Berlin- Brussels, 6:46am-13:26pm, does this mean that the train leaves the station at 6:46 or arrives at the station at that time. How long before setting off do the trains get to the station, how far in advance should I get there to ensure I get on? Also, if I haven’t reserved a seat, is there a limit to the amount of people that the train allows (I assume I will be standing which is fine). Will the train just fill up or is there a maximum amount of passengers allowed. I don’t want to not be able to miss/not get on as there’s a big gap between train times.
No seats available for France and Spain
Here is my situation:I bought my Global Pass for 4 days for the 2nd class seats. I planned out my trip in the app with all of the trains that I would need. None of the trains show available seats and are all sold out. Is it possible to pay an extra fee for 1st class tickets to still get on the trains with my 2nd class ticket? I don’t mind changing my pass for a 1st class pass.This is my planning:Amsterdam to Paris on the 4th of AugustParis to Barcelona on the 7th of AugustBarcelona to Paris on the 13th of AugustParis to Amsterdam on the 14the of August Thank you for your help in advance!
Pass cover number always incorrect
Hello all, I am trying to book reservations online which I really need to do soon but the interface always says“Your Pass cover number doesn't look right”I already tried out all numbers I could find on my paper pass and in the online reservation. Issuer is DB (CIV 1080), as it says on the pass. Could the issue maybe be that I did not purchase the pass myself but the travel department of my employer did it?
Was ist mit innerhalb eines Monats gemeint?
Hallo Community,Ich will auch endlich meinen Traum erfüllen und Europa mithilfe des Interrail Global Pass entdecken.Ich möchte mit der Option 7 Tage in einem Monat reisen, frage mich aber, ob man über zwei Monate hinweg reisen kann (z.B Ende August - Anfang September), so dass die 7 Tage innerhalb von 30/31 Tagen gelten oder ob man in einem festen Monat reisen muss (z.B nur September oder nur August).Ich würde mich über eine Antwort freuen :)

Does my itinerary count as 4 travel days and how to go around the inbound/outbound rule?
HI there, I hope you can help. This will be a really long post so if it’s too much to read all of it, the main questions are:(1) does my itinerary below actually count as 4 travel days (based on using night trains)?(2) I think I need 3 journeys on 3 separate days in total, within my own country. This apparently isn’t allowed on the Interrail ticket. Is there any way round this, for example if you’re using nightjet and there’s no other route (Germany’s pretty big)?Long version:I’ve booked a holiday house on the South Coast of France (near Cannes), and we decided this year that it’s too far by car, and we won’t take the plane. So we’ll take the train - great! And a sleeper, as it’s a long journey, what fun!I think i’ve figured out the easiest route now, which was complicated by long journeys needing night trains and then seeing a stop in Italy makes sense to add some extra holiday. I was getting ready to book the 4 day Interrail passes for the family, but i’ve just discovered a rather aw
Why is Igoumenitsa not a valid destination?
Hello guys :)I want to book my first pass here in eurail.I want to visit Igoumenitsa in Greece. I searched the map and Igoumenitsa is listed as the destination.However, I cannot specify Igoumenitsa as a destination in the travel times section (no trains are found).Are there any tricks to reach Igoumenitsa anyway with a Global pass?The algorithm found a route to Bari. I would need a ferry than to reach Igoumenitsa. Do I have to book the ferry then spontaneously? When “yes”, can I be sure, that my Europass is counting for the ferry?Thanks for your help in advance!
Rail planner App not working an my mobile
I installed the Interrail Rail Planner App (several times). But my mobile is always shutting down, when opening it. I´ve tried various ways solving the problem (reinstalling, App Settings as proposed, ...), but nothing has changed. Now it´s only 3 weeks to go, before our trip begins. The seat reservations are bought. What can I do, if I should not find a way to start the App on my mobile? How can I activate my pass and proof / show my tickets?I reported the problem to the customer service some weeks ago, but the advice wasn´t helpful. The prior condition was always a started app e.g. for error logging and so on. But as I wrote: The mobile (Huawei P 8, Android 6.0, is shutting down after starting the app before I can do anything.
Making Renfe / AVE reservations AT Spanish Railway stations | How does it work?
We are trying very hard to make our Renfe / AVE reservations for our ‘Spain cityhopping trip’ on time, which is rather complicated as most people here know, so if all else fails we will be forced to try making our reservations very last-minute, AT the Renfe / AVE stations.So these questions are basically about this worst case scenario: -How last-minute can we make reservations AT the departure stations? At least 48 hours in advance? 24 hours in advance? 1 hour in advance?-Can we -for example- reserve seats between Madrid and Bilbao when we are in the -for example- Seville RENFE station? Or can we only reserve trips starting from Seville from there? -In hindsight: As we have planned only 5 trips (Seville - Granada | Granada - Madrid | Madrid - Bilbao | Bilbao - Zaragoza | Zaragoza - Girona) wouldn’t we have been better off with a Renfe pass for international travellers? Would this have saved us all the reservation hassle that we got ‘for free’ with our One Country Passes Spain, as Renfe
Public transport between stations covered?
I am booking a train trip from Paris to Bruges. It says we have to travel by public transport between stations. Does Eurail handle that? Do we need to find our own? Will we need a bus pass in addition to our Eurail pass. We are senior citizens and I’m worried we’ll miss our second train.
INT 461 from Bucuresti Nord to Halkali
Hello hive mind!I am planning to take the night train from Bucurest Nord to Halkali. In the rail planner app, and on https://bileteinternationale.cfrcalatori.ro/, this train is shown as one train with no changes on the way. However when I tried to book the reservation at the DB travel center, I was told that I have to change two times on the way. Checking the time table (https://p.bdz.bg/www/p/t/ptev-mezhd-cfr-2022-lyato-3011.pdf) the trip is also shown with a changeover. Does anybody know which information in valid?Thanks in advance :)
