To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
We are about to embark on our first trip across Europe using rail rather than flying and am struggling a bit with this notion of seat reservations vs a booking. One specific question I would like guidance on from the community is this. I have a Eurail pass and have booked two first class tickets from Munich to Prague on November 23rd on RE357 aka ALX357. Trying to get a seat reservation has been frustrating. I have checked the CD Bahn.DE and Eurail sites and get various forms of “the train is temporarily unavailable for reservations”. Without a seat reservation am I guaranteed a seat but not a specific assignment or could we show up and not be able to board because it is fully booked. It never states fully booked so I’m trying to decide do I show up and hope I get a seat or do I give up and book another train. This is a direct train so it is far more convenient and the other options have 1 or more quite tight connections <10 minutes. Being new to this and having luggage for two of u

Hi everyone! I live in Lyon. If I want to get the eurostar from Paris, is my journey to Paris included as my 'outbound journey', or would my outbound journey be my eurostar? Basically, are both my journey to Paris and my eurostar allowed on the ticket? (it would be the same coming back arriving in Paris on the eurostar and then going back to Lyon). Thanks so much in advance, I’m so confused!!
Hello there kind community, I noticed that the train from Malpensa Aeroporto T1 to Milano Centrale is Not in Pass Network, so means I cannot book the ticket using my Eurail Global Pass?How should I go about in buying a ticket from Malpensa Aeroporto T1 to Milano Centrale? Would appreciate all the kind help that I can get :)
I will be traveling with my large family of ten (10) this winter. Seat reservations on the website and mobile app seem to be limited to nine travelers maximum per transaction. We could do successive reservations but our fear is we will not be seated together. Any suggestions?
Hi All,I’ve been wanting to reserve a seat on the overnight train between Prague and Budapest on the 6th of Jan. On the cd.cz website, all trains are available to purchase/reserve except the overnight train departing at 10.43. This train also doesn’t seem to be showing up on any other websites e.g. raileurope. I was just wondering if anyone knew how to reserve this train or why I am unable to yet?
Hello, I'm a bit stuck. We are flying into Helsinki on the 7th December and we want to catch the Santa Claus express that evening to Rovaniemi. The prices are Eur 49 p.p for a deluxe double sleeper cabin. havent been able to reserve online so I called the Eurarail help line. They can book me in but I'm confused as the prices are Eur 180pp now.Does this sound correct, as it's now cheaper to fly then take the train.
I am trying to make my train reservations from Lyon Part Dieu to Barcelona Sants for 26.12. Journey begins at 11:06am. This is a 2 part journey. It does not look like I can no longer reserve seats for part 1. When I booked part 2 my transaction goes through but then I receive an email from Eurail stating something went wrong with the reservation. It is extremely frustrating! We are on a pretty tight travel schedule. My biggest concern is getting the ticket from Nimes to Barcelona Sants on the 13:18 train. I should have more options from Lyon to Nimes (regional train.) Can anyone advise?
Hi again! Ive now successfully purchased all my trains but 1. From Lausanne to Paris. Im trying to book it through oebb but it has said tickets unavailable for weeks, and tickets through sncf are so expensive - they dont accept a eurail pass for discount. Where else can I book them that may be cheaper? Its cheaper through the eurail site at this point.
Hi, i took the 6:05 train from london at pancreas’s to Nottingham (I’m a uk citizen and was using this as one of my outbound journeys) and the train was cancelled due to track issues so had to get a taxi with other passengers the rest of the journey. i was wondering if there’s any Kind of compensation I could receive any kinda of compensation from the rail company or interail; mainly for the cab price. thanks
Hello, I have a global pass and I’m going home on Sunday from Bratislava to Torino (Italy). It is quite a long journey, so it obviously include changes. I am an Italian resident, and I would need to change trains twice in Italy (Verona and Milano), but in the app it still shows as one journey Bratislava-Torino. Can I do that or can I only travel to Verona and then have to pay for the tickets from there? I tried to contact Trenitalia (Italian railway company) but they say only ticket offices can give me that information, and I don’t have the chance to get to one until I’m actually back to Italy. I will do that when I need to change in Verona, but I was wondering if someone had a similar experience or can clarify this for me. Thank you very much in advance 💗
Hi! Nice to meet you all :) I have a question on the booking of Munich to Salzburg. I was trying to book via the mobile app but it shows my pass isn’t valid in some of the countries, while I double checked on all the sites that it is included in the pass.Please help! Thanks!
I am not sure what’s wrong with the seat reservation from Geneva to Paris (Gare de Lyon). I tried so hard to reserve the the seat on 5 Dec (even on other days/ other times), the website shows the timetable. However, the payment page, it appreared that “please try to find an alternate connection. The available leg will be removed from your cart”I have Global Eurail pass, so I would like to use it and willing to pay for the seat reservation for extra. Could you pls suggest me? I don’t know any problem happens.
I'm sure this is a redundant question but I want to make sure I don't mess this up! I just bought the 7 day Global Pass for my husband and I for a trip that doesn't start until April 2023. I added both to the app on my phone. My app is attached to a trip and his is attached to a separate trip because the app said it can't be added to the same trip as mine. Was that correct? The next step says to activate, but do I do that now or in April just before the 1st day of travel ( which will be the day we travel to Paris from London). Next...I want to purchase the tickets for the London to Paris train now. When I purchase those on Eurail or another site, will it ask for my pass number? Then...do I go back to the app and add those to our respective trips and can that be done without activation?
Hi,I am departing from Rome Termini to Rome Airport Fiumicino on 4 November. I purchased the Eurail 1st class pass for all my travels previously.I will like to check do I need to purchase a ticket to be guarantee a seat? I tried to purchase a ticket but most trains show “You're ready to board”. I am just concern that I may not be able to board the train on the actual day.If there is no tickets require to purchase, may I also check what do I show to enter the train platform?What do I show to the train person when he/she checks? Thank you in advance!
