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’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!
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.
Hello, We are traveling from Tirano to Chur with the eurail pass on a panoramic train without a reservation, hopeful to use the carriages that do not require reservations. Does anyone know how many carriages a regional train has? Perhaps slightly paranoid but how do we make sure we get a seat on a train without reserving the seats? Thanks!
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?
Hi, I have lived in the UK for over 10 years with an indefinite leave to remain visa but I have a Japanese passport. I have been using the indefinite leave to remain visa to enter the UK and to prove my residence for the past decade at immigration. However I have seen some people say that I need some sort of European residence card to prove my residence and that the visa does not count. Is this true? The visa is the only evidence I have. Thanks in advance :)
Can I travel from Bordeaux in my home country to London (via Lille or Paris) using international pass? Although doable in a day, because I need to change trains to get on the Eurostar, does this count as more than one trip within my home country ? ie the first trip (Bordeaux to Paris or Lille would not be to cross the border).
Hello! I am planning to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Amsterdam and Paris. I want to train from Rome to Florence, Florence to Venice, then fly to Amsterdam and train from Amsterdam to Paris - all within one month. I am hoping someone can help me in which pass will work the best for me 😄 Thanks so much!
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
Travelling from Stroud UK to La Ciotat France in the last week of May 2024. Day 1 Fri 24th or Sat 25th MayStroud to LondonLondon to ParisParis to Marseille Marseille to La Ciotat Same return journey. As we’re not stopping at multiple locations other than to get connecting trains, do you think it would be cheaper to buy regular train tickets rather than an interrail pass (plus supplements for Eurostar and Paris to Marseille)? From my initial browse it looks equally costed as the Eurostar without interrail is expensive as is the Paris to Marseille leg. I’m drawn to the interrail pass as we used it for a longer trip this year and found it really easy to use. We’ll only be away for between 7-9 days. Our intention is to not fly. Any advice recommended.
Hello, do you know if I can have two Interrail Passes at the same time? I need a second pass for the next part of my travels. But during that time I am going back to Germany twice which means that I need one outbound and two inbound tickets. Is it possible to save one of my travel days of my first ticket to use ist for one of the inbound trips?
New traveler here. Some friends and I are flying to Copenhagen in November. We want to also go to Sweden and Norway. It looks like the Scandinavia adult pass may be the way to go. Does this pass also let us take local trains (sorry for my lack of knowledge) or does it only permit travel between the countries.Also, if we are only traveling 5 out of 8 days would it be cheaper to buy train passes instead of the rail pass? THANKS!
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!
Hi guys,I see from previous posts that experts don’t recommend activating the pass until first day of travel. Me and my wife already activated and put the day of validity starting as our first day of travel.I can’t find in the app how to de-activate. Does it really matter if I’ve put the date of validity as our first travel day anyway? I still have until midnight the day before to change right?Please let me know how to de-activate in case I need to.Thanks!

Hello all, I have a query regarding my first class interrail ticket.The main reason I got a first class ticket was for long journeys. I have sciatica and it helps to have a bit more leg room. I thought it might also allow me to use lounges if I have a longer stay at a station.It's also such a small amount extra for first class (when already spending so much on a pass) that I thought "go on, spoil yourself".I know some trains will not have first class and for short journeys I am fine sitting anywhere. I started my journey today, travelling from Vilnius to Kaunas for the day (I started my journey in Helsinki but decided to do the Baltics by bus and have an extra 10 days).On the journey to Kaunas I made the ticket and the guard scanned my QR code with no issues.Fast forward to the evening, and travelling back to Vilnius the guard questions why I am sat in second class with a first class ticket.Am I supposed to travel first class if there is a first class seating area? The train is less
Thanks in advance for always being helpful. I have booked seat only reservations through DB and OBB directly for trains from Berlin to Prague, Munich to Salzburg and Salzburg to Zurich. Now I’m confused as to how to find our seats on these trains. I have receipts but they don’t list seats. Should they? I need to activate my Eurail pass and then add the train to our tickets I believe but then what? Any help with walking me through the process step by step would help ease this travel anxiety prone traveler!
Do I need to add the journey to the pass (by switching the yellow button on) on the RailPlanner app before I board the train?Because from past trips I have done this, but when the ticket inspector asks for my interrail pass, the app has not registered the journey and I have to do this procedure again before showing my ticket. The app has these constant bugs.My friend got a fine because of this? Is this a possibility?
