To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
My wife and I each have a 15 days in 2 months 2nd class global pass at discount costing €27.03 per person per day. We are going to use 10 travel days for intercountry travels.For the remaining 5 travel days, what is the best use of each travel so that we get maximum return for the money we paid for each travel day?This might be a silly question. Can a travel day be used for things other than train travel or travel in general?We are considering days trips from London to Stonehenge, Amsterdam to Zaanse Schans and Florence to Pisa. My reseach suggests that use a travel for each of these in not good value. Is that right?
Hi,Booking regular ticket on sncf costs: 19€Booking a seat reservation on interrail costs: 22€ I feel this situation unfair and that SNCF is overcharging seat reservations and removed online booking to prevent people from using interrail in their country. Maybe someone can explain this situation please ? Thanks in advance,Nicolas.
Hey everyone.Question, can you do this route with a four-day pass?Amsterdam to Copenhagen. With a stopover (of about 5 hours) in Hamburg.A few days later from Copenhagen (directly) to Berlin.A few days later from Berlin to Prague. With a stopover (of about 5 hours) in Dresden.A few days later from Prague (directly) to Amsterdam.I hope you get it! And thanks in advance for your answer 😁
Hi everyone, i just got back from my very first Interrail trip, and i would like to thank everyone here who tirelessly answer all queries. It feels daunting at first, but once i activated the pass on my first travel day everything became easy! (Well, i took the easy routes, London- Rotterdam- Amsterdam- Germany- Switzerland) I had the 7day Global Pass, use the 1st day as my outbound and used the last 4 (out 7) train hopping in Cities and towns of Switzerland instead of buying Swiss Pass. I will definitely Interrail again to explore the other parts of Europe!! Thank you once again for all your quick assistance!
Hi EveryoneTwo of us are looking to leave Mulhouse on the morning of 14 September to go down to Pescara in Italy - allowing for an overnight stop on the way.I had originally planned to work out a route across Switzerland closer to the time but with the various delays being mentioned in Switzerland, I’m wondering if it would be a good idea to make some seat reservations now.OBB isn’t currently letting me book reservations on the 11:03dep from Basel SBB on the Eurocity 151 to Milano.Any thoughts on why this might be?I did think about going via the Bernina Express route and staying in Tirano before continuing to Pescara but thought I’d take a quicker route this time. Happy to revert to this route though if need be. Any thoughts gratefully received!
Dear All,Apologies first of all for the seemingly endless questions!If I decide to travel on a Friday from Lille to Nice via Paris where I intend to get a night train will this mean two journeys? The first train I will take will be from Lille to Paris and the second train - a night one - from Paris to Nice. The two journeys will not be in excess of 24 hours but will be over two days or two parts of days.I hope this makes sense and I am grateful for any replies received.Many thanks & kind regards, John
So I'm planning to travel to Luxembourg on the 21st of December for a couple of weeks. During these days I would like to go to Amsterdam, Brussels, and Paris, I cannot find any trains during December, where can I find the schedule for the trains, any tips? We're a family of 4, you think it would be cheaper to rent a car?
Hello! please let me know about 2 destinations!In France would like to buy a ticket through Paris.For example, let's say I want to go from Bordeaux to Paris and then to Lyon on the same day.Can this be used as a one-day pass if it is on the same day?Regards,
BonjourJ'ai sans faire exprès indiqué qu'un trajet était Inbound (alors que j'habite en France et que le trajet était pour Belgique- Amsterdam)Je n'ai donc plus de possibilité d'utiliser un trajet pour rentrer. Savez cous comment faire ?J'ai déjà réservé les places car il ne restait plus qu'un train de libre.Merci
I know I need to buy my ticket for Sofia to Istanbul at the station. I arrive to Sofia tomorrow morning and plan to get the train to Istanbul that evening. 1. What are the chances there is still availability and 2. Why doesn't the journey show on the planner anymore. The same for Bucharest to Sofia it was no longer showing
We have what looks like 52 minutes to transfer trains in Bruxelles-MIDI from a THALYS train to a EUROSTAR train. There was a note that said check in closes 30 minutes before departure and to allow 45-60 minutes for passport control. The ticket looks like the below 14:08 - BRUXELLES-MIDI (Belgium) Thalys0h 35m (Eurostar -check in closes 30m before departure; allow 45-60m for passport control)14:52 -BRUXELLES-MIDI (Belgium) EurostarI think the 35 minutes in between is saying that is how long it takes to get from one train to the other...not sure, because it doesnt mention anything but the note next to it. Im worried that we will miss the connection and this is the train to Gatwick Airport to our flight out. We dont want to have any issues.Is anyone familiar with this process and able to guide me in terms of how this works? Where/how do you check in? Can this be done while I’m on the first train on some app or does it have to be done in the station? How long does that security/passport c
I want to purchase and use a mobile Eurail Global Pass tomorrow, flex days (4). I am unable to find the answer as to buying and using the first flex day on the same day as purchase. Can anyone help?I don't want to purchase tomorrow if I can't use it. Is there a waiting period, one day before use, for example?Thanks.
Hello all, I am very grateful for the advice. I need to travel tomorrow at short notice! Is it possible to buy a physical paper pass anywhere in Paris. A couple years ago I went to an SNCF ticket office and they said they no longer did them, however their explanation was because I had a British passport, which seemed far-fetched.I’d love a paper pass, especially as I prefer them (despite the advantages of mobile). I have a normal full-fare ticket to Paris, however I would need Interrail from there. Is there anywhere I can purchase one!Many thanks!
Dear All,I think that I am going to go for this pass as I am planning to go to 3 Rugby World Cup matches this autumn.As I can only use two journeys [days of travel] out of 7 from the UK to France and back am I obliged to use these on my first and last journey, that is journey 1 and journey 7 or can I use them for a return journey which might be journey 1 & 2 or journey 3 & 4 or journey 5 & 6?Many thanks, John
Hi, I live in Germany with a permanent residency but I am a non-EU citizen (of course with a valid non-EU passport). Can I choose to travel with Eurail pass instead of Interrail pass? I would really prefer to travel with Eurail pass as Germany’s central location and interrail pass’ inbound/outbound rule renders the interrail pass kinda useless if I want to say travel a few days to France and some days on the other side of Germany, to say Austria (unless I take some complicated route that doesn’t include journey’s in Germany). The language on eurail website creates a bit of a grey area (as it’s mentioned there that non-EU citizens who reside in the EU can ‘choose’ to buy an interrail pass). If I buy an eurail pass by providing the details of my non-EU passport, would it be fine or would I get into trouble? Has anybody been fined for such cases? To be really honest, this inbound/outbound rule is very very inconvenient and frustrating, especially for people like me who live in central eu
Hi, my family and I are travelling around Europe in September and October, we have purchased global pass. I was wondering when it says print at home pass, do you actually need to. We are travelling from Australia and won't have access to printer(can't bring 1 either). We have a couple of set dates in France, Germany and Austria done but we are being flexible in Italy and just looking at doing day trips from Florence but some trains are reservation. Is the email enough?Thank you
Hello,I purchased a Eurail pass for travel the end of September. We are flying into London Heathrow arriving on September 29 around 12:30pm. We want to travel from London to Paris the same day. I noticed that checking the train schedule it says seat reservation required. What train do we take from Heathrow to Paris city center and how do we reserve seats?
We tried to buy 2nd class seat reservations from Ourense to Madrid.Instead the clerk at the station sold us 1st class and said that 2nd class was sold out.We said we only had a 2nd class pass but they just ignored us and said everything will be fine.Is that right?
