Can't find the train from Budapest to Florence
Two months ago I couldn't find a train for 17th of August from Budapest to Florence. Now, in April, I can't still find the train. Even if I put another destination, I can't find a train for that day...so I thought it was too early, but now it is still too early? What should I do?
Booking ferries in cyclades with 3-month global pass, does my pass need to be activated to book?
Hi everyone! I’m wanting to book my ferries between the greek islands in the cyclades for my trip in August (I have a 3-month global pass). This is my first time using eurail so I’m a bit new to it. When I go to book a ferry using Blue Star Ferries, following the Eurail instructions, it prompts me to “Fill in your Pass Cover Number in the 'Discount ID / Document' field. You can find your Pass Cover Number on the back of your paper Pass cover, above the QR code”. On the Blue Star Ferries website, the little info button near the “Discount ID / Document” field specifies for me to “Please insert your activated Pass Cover Number in the field "Discount ID/ Document" My pass isn’t activated yet as I’ll begin travelling in July!! Does this mean I have to wait til July to book my ferries?? Or should I just ignore that statement about the ‘activated pass cover number’ and insert my pass cover number, regardless of the fact that is it currently not activated? I hope this makes sense!! Thank you s
Is the trip from my home country part of my travel days or is it free of charge? (or something different...)
I am going to travel this summer and was wondering if an outbound and inbound trip count as travel days. I have booked the 7 travel days in 1 month pass. Does that mean that after the trip from home to my first destination I still have 7 travel days left, or just 6 travel days? thanks! Meike
How to add a shared trip to a pass
HI all sorry this may have been asked a million times before. I have purchased rail passes for myself and my family. I have created a series of journeys for my trip and added it has registered against my pass. I have then shared my trip to my family and they can see the itinery but cannot add it to their pass. There is no option in the app to “add” a shared trip to their “my trip” or to associate thier pass with the trip details. Do we really need to add each journey individually on their respective “my trip”. ?? I would have thought it would be a simple share the trip option to add shared trip to my passplease help ? we have a week before we travel !! Thanks in advance.
URGENT HELP: Could not activate my 3m Global Pass - pass now expired...
Dear community,I wanted to activate my mobile pass in the app yesterday (last day to be activated), however, the app-activation unfortunately did not go through (seemed to be a technical issue). Now it just says the pass is expired in the app :(Is there any possibility to get the expired pass re-activated for the remaining time of the 3months? Unfortunately, I could not find a phone number to talk to somebody in person and could only send a general request. Please help - I don’t want to lose my Interrail pass before even starting my trip :(Thank you all!Marc
Booking a train from bari to roma
Hi allWe were due to travel today with reserved seats first class but we can't travel due to my partner doing her back in. We are getting some drugs and staying in bari another night.

How to guarantee seats?
Hi,I am new and finding this all very complicated, honestly wishing I had never bought the pass.I have a mobile global first class pass and planning to travel next week.I have read loads of previous questions and have been searching trips, adding them to My Trip and then to My Pass to show tickets.Really appreciate some help to my questions-1) I have read that although I have a ticket, it doesn’t guarantee a seat on the train, for trips with no reservations needed, do I now have to find out the train company and see if I can make reservations?2) My pass shows a bar code for the day with several trips, does that ticket/bar code cover every trip for the day?3) Do all trains have first class carriages? Trips without reservations, do I just look for seats in first class and if none available, go to 2nd class?4) Some trips have a very short transfer to change trains, is there a way of finding out platform numbers before arriving so I don’t miss the train?I am so confused and with only havin
Interrail (& camping) in Scotland
We want to do an interrail, starting in Germany and going forward to Scotland to do some hiking/ camping there (for aprox. 3-4 weeks in August).Are there any things we have to watch out?Do we need reservations for the trains in Scotland or just for the trains to get there? Are there recommended routes for our trip?
Bought the wrong Eurail pass. Help!
I just found out that I purchased a 15 day pass for 15 days. We thought it was 15 days in 30 days. yikes.I see I can buy a new pass and then refund the original one. I am worried about my reservations I bought for 4 of us for multiple travelers. Will my reservations transfer over also? We are leaving for Europe in 2 days. Thank you!
Activate Journey or link to Pass
Hi Fellow travellers, I am struggling a bit with the APP and as with other users concerned about my planned travel.I successfully activated my account and created my 1st trip. I managed to link that to my pass a few days ago - we take our 1st trip tomorrow.I have since created several other journeys but cannot link them to my Pass.THERE IS NO TOGGLE BUTTON TO ACTIVATE. So while it may be prudent to not link until ready to travel but to have no toggle button suggests that I will not be able to link when ready.Thanks in advance
Reservation Danemark, Suède et norvège
Bonjour,Je prépare un voyage vers la Norvège et je cherche à vérifier comment réserver les places ou les couchettes selon les train. J’ai acheté un pass pour réserver les trainsPour certains trains interrail me propose bien la possibilité de réserver les trainsMais pour certains autres trains aucune proposition n’est faitePar exemple nous souhaitons prendre le train de trondheim vers Fauske.Il existe un train de jour et un train de nuit. Il est possible de réserver les sièges pour le train de jour mais pas pour le train de nuit. Il n’est pas non plus possible sur le site de la compagnie norvégienne (www.vy.no) de ne réserver que les sièges ou la couchetteJ’avoue que je ne comprend pas trop comment il est possible de planifier un voyage sans pouvoir réserver les placesAvez-vous rencontré les mêmes problèmes ?Interrail propose t-il un support téléphonique pour ces casMerciThomas
Eurail or Interrail Pass
Hello, I’m a European passport holder, my wife is not. We live in the UK and came across a great time to travel. I am wondering if the Eurail pass works for me. Also, Living in the UK but with Mexican pasport will the Eurail pass be deliverd to the UK?Can we also use the global pass?Does anyone have a number we can call?
Il y a quand même un très gros problème sur Railplanner. J ai besoin de 3 réservations Paris Karlsruhe sur début octobre, ce n est pas ouvert alors qu à la même date l année dernière ça l était.. D autre part, sur le site Sncf connect, il ne reste que 5 places de dispo pour notre heure, mais bien sûr on ne peut pas réserver avec un pass Interrail, et pas par téléphone non plus.. C est un peu archaïque...
I accidentally reserved a train on the wrong day, will this still count as a travel day if i don't actually travel?
I bought my interrail pass (10 travel days within 2 months) but when I tried to reserve my first train journey I accidentally reserved it a month earlier than I meant to, when I won't even be travelling so won’t have activated my pass. Will this count as a travel day even if I don’t actually travel?

Hi I am planning our europe holiday and trying to work out the best way for us to use the eurail pass we have purchased. Do I need to purchase a reservation to get from Paris to Nice on 12 May or is there a reservation free way please?
