To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hi, I’d like to travel from Budapest to Berlin on the night train on 17 October 2023 but on the Hungarian website the night trains from 1 October onwards say they are ‘full’. On other countries’ websites it just says ‘not available’ It seems unlikely that they’re full. I’m worried it’s because of engineering works but can’t find any information. Does anyone know what’s going on?Many thanks,Meri
Hi everyone,We have a Eurail Global Pass first class.I was trying to book Zurich Main Station to Milano Central (among other tickets) on the OBB website and have accidentally booked this leg as second class when we wanted to select first class.The ticket trip is to be on 14/09/2023 around 9am for 2x adults with Eurail Global Pass first class. Ideally we wanted the 9.33am train via Lugano. I didn’t realise that you can cancel reservations within 3mins of booking so I can’t cancel now, but I was hoping to just re-reserve first class seats and pay again for the reservation. However when I look online now on OBB the original journey we have is no longer available. Here is my initial booking from OBB: Here is the OBB website when I look now: I have tried on bahn.de, SBB and thetrainline.com as well to no avail.This journey isn’t even showing up on bahn.de or SBB now and thetrainline.com shows: Is anyone able to suggest how I can re-reserve first class seats for the original journey? Also I
It says on the app the train from Zagreb to ljubliana needs a seat reservation that is free how does that work? I also just got a train from bled to Zagreb that went through ljubliana that had no reservation. So I'm confused as to whether or not I need to buy a ticket.
Hi! I want to book the night train EN 476 metropol / IC 586, from Budapest to Prague, on October 16, but a message comes out that says it is not available.

Hey, I don’t succeed to book a reservation in the night train between Budapest and Praha (train at 10:13 pm). When I have to pay, it doesn’t work (with the application or website). And it’s not possible for tomorrow, in 2 Months, or in 6 months. Is there a problem with OBB ? Lore
Hello ! I recently came back home from a fantastic interrail trip in central Europe ! However I realized that I haven’t used all of my 7 days of travel during my trip (still one left). Furthermore, I’ve learned that this year Interrail is trying a new formula that gives 3 days of outbound/inbound journeys and I have used only two of them.As I need to go to Italy next week, I was wondering if someone knows wehther I can use my last day of travel (and my third day of inbound/outbound journey) to exit my country (Switzerland) and travel to my destination. Thank you for all ! :)
Hi,I have an Interrail GlobalPass and am currently in Turkey. I want to go to Budapest from Istanbul. I have already booked the Halkali - Bucharest journey, and I want to book the Bucharest-Budapest journey on 1 Sep after 5pm.I would like to book the Bucharest-Budapest night journey but on the Hungarian site, despite the addition of the pass, the fares are much higher than expected, perhaps they contain the seat + the ticket and I can't find a way to separate them. On the Romanian site, it is impossible to put a form of discount/pass in the entry data.Finally, on the OBB site, the ticket is indicated as not available. Do I have to wait until I'm at the station to take these tickets? Moreover the schedules on the OBB and Interrail sites are totally different. On the rail planner, I see an 18:25 direct train. On the other hand, on the OBB, I see a 17:44 train with 1 exchange. Which one is correct? Finally, if the OBB site is correct, I’d like to buy a seat reservation but I think the
Hello this is a first time 18yr old traveller going with discovereu here. I have an Interrail pass. I am very lost about these reservation thing. So, when I check my DiscoverEU trip pass, it shows a train that goes from Halkalı(Istanbul) to Videle (Romania) from 20.00 to 16.18 but when i check the interrail.eu site i cant find this train. Also, even though i added my trip i had to manually choose every train, i hope that is correct. I will share my route here in case you guys need more information for helping me. I checked the Turkey rail website but there is no train to videle either. I am very lost about all of this and i really need help.
So I have a Eurail pass and intent to use it from mid-August of this year to mid-September. I see that (unsurprisingly) I need seat a seat reservation to take a night train from Augsburg Hbf to Budapest-Kelefoeld on Wednesday, September 6. The Eurail app says that a “Bed in Shared compartment” is 36 euros per person (reasonable). But the Eurail website that actually sells the reservations says $715 for a family of four (no where near 36 x 4 = $144).So I went directly to the rail company operating the train: “Euro Night”. The news is a bit better that to get a Couchette carriage Compartment” for all four of us it says 264 euros. That’s better than $715 of course, but no where in “Euro NIght” did I put my Eurail credentials, so I’m wondering if I am paying for the pass + seats. In other words, if Euro Night doesn’t ask for Eurail, what good is Eurail?Or am I missing something and there is a way to get it cheaper by just getting the seats (not the pass)?? I am already regretting a
I just bought my 8 day Danish Eurail pass, with the understanding that it would enable me to get discounted tickets on bus lines as well. But I do not see how to do this if everything has to be booked through the Rail Planner app. Any suggestions would be helpful!

I’m looking to book a sleeper from Paris to Vienna in January. They aren’t loaded yet, but I was checking prices for sample dates in November but they all seem to be full already or not available. I did find one date in October, but then others referred to track works meaning the train wouldn’t run.Does anyone have info (or know where to check) on the track works? If they continue on into January this may be the end of that particular plan.
I booked a journey for my family from Milan to Paris just before the closure of the Gotthard Tunnel. We had to buy seat reservations for Milan-Basel and for Strasbourg-Paris. I’m now concerned that we will be delayed on the way to Basel and won’t be able to make our SNCF train from Strasbourg-Paris. I would like to change our Strasbourg-Paris train to a later one so that we don’t stress about making the connection or changing tickets on the day, but SNCF doesn’t seem to allow seat reservation changes. Does anyone know how we might be able to make a seat reservation change in advance of the journey? Thanks!
Hello, I have a europe trip planned out but am not sure what to do about two of the trains I am wanting to take. I leave Canada on September 6th (15 days away) and need the train reservations (that are delivered by post) for September 16th and September 19th. On the 16th I am planning on taking the Eurocity train from Berlin to Krakow and on the 19th I am planning on taking the Intercity night train from Krakow to Budapest. I will be at a hostel in Berlin from the 13th-16th of September. Should I send the tickets there? Or am I able to get the reservations a different way? Thanks a lot in advance.
Dear community,I‘m planning a reservation for the SJ EuroNight 346 from Stockholm to Hamburg via the interrail reservation service, but I‘m a bit confused.I would like to know if booking a "Sleeping compartment 2 class" for my partner (female) and me (male) means that we get a shared compartment? Since it is also mentioned on the SJ website that you can choose between ladies and gents, we are unsure whether we will then be assigned separate compartments.Thank you in advance!
Hello, I’ve searched for an answer to this and followed the advice given but have not been able to resolve the problem. I’m booked into accommodation in Strasbourg on 25th September and need to get from Lyon to Strasbourg that day.I’m just not able to reserve a seat on any of the sites I’ve looked. I can purchase tickets on some of the sites but not simply reserve seats. Obviously I don’t want to pay for tickets after already buying the Eurail Pass. Some trains are showing no tickets available (Rugby World Cup time) but if you are able to point me to how I can reserve pretty much any seats (need two) on a train that will get us to Strasbourg on that day I’d appreciate it greatly. We leave for Europe from Australia tomorrow!
Hey thereIf I was to travel from Amsterdam to Berlin, then from Berlin to Treviso/Italy...Then back to Amsterdam via Paris and Belgium- would it be worthwhile buying the Eurail Pass...We would need about 5 days on the train altogether...Would we need to reserve seats…? Are there trains going this route…? Can I purchase the pass when we arrive in Amsterdam…?We are doing this trip from 9 December to 30 December 2023 so do the trains run during this time…?Thank you for any help and advice...We are 2 adults...
Hi!I’m trying to plan my trip, but unfortunately the seat reservations system is a nightmare.I read the guides here, even the one from The man on seat 61, but it’s still not clear. I want to travel from Barcelona to Heidelberg on 2/9. There are several options, I would like to use the one that is 10:33 → 22:53. But I’m flexible, so I can change that to any of the other 3 options that arrive the same day.I’m trying to make a reservation at Interrail.eu .But all the options have an issue.The one I mentioned, doesn’t allow to book the train Paris Est - Mannheim. I read over here that this should be made by phone and they send it via post mail to your address? Will it arrive on time? Another option is 08:22 → 21:49. In this case, I can’t book Barcelona - Lyon, should I go to the train station and directly book there? But then in the same journey, I can’t book Paris - Karlsruhe. So what happens if I book Barcelona Lyon, only to find out that Paris - Karlsruhe is sold out? How do you go abou
