When to Book reservations for my train.
Hi there,I have read through a lot of the topics about reservation timing and I want to make sure I understand when I am able to make reservations for my trips. 3 of my 5 planned Train journeys have reservation requirements.1 Domestic round trip in Poland (Krakow to Oscweicm) on June 16.1 Train from Krakow to Prague on the 17th.1 Overnight train from Munich to Paris on the 25th.If I have read the posts correctly it means I can start making reservations 30 days, 60 days, and 3 months in advance respectively. Is that correct?
Travel from Kalamata to Olympia on the Greek Peloponnese
We want to catch a bus from Kalamata in the south Peloponnese to Olympia. It appears the bus stops at Zacharo which is roughly 50km short of Olympia. I dont understand why this would be the case. There seems to only be the option of catching a taxi the remaining distance.Has anybody done this trip? I know that buses coming from the north go all the way to Olympia from Athens. Cheers, Renee L (Australia).
Greek Islands Pass
Hi all! I was trying to reserve a ferry from Athens to Crete, and I can’t seem to find the Eurail discount option. Attached is a screenshot of a different route, the discount is very clear and easy to find. But whenever I try to book to/from Crete, it won’t appear. I believe the pass allows us to travel to Crete as well. I checked all three websites (Superfast, Blue Star and Hellenic) and I keep finding the same scenario. The discount just doesn’t show up within the options. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!!

Cannot add trip to the pass despite the valid date
I successfully activated my pass and made the reservation in the website. My valid date is 12 Feb to 11 May 2023. However, when I click at the QR to add the journey to my pass, it said "your pass isn't valid on this date." This happens at both my trip on 12 Feb and 15 Feb. There is no deactivation button for me as well. I tried deleting the app and reloading it, but it didn't work. Could you please help me because I have to travel real soon. Thank you so much.

Interrail for residents of Northern Ireland
I live in Northern Ireland. Given that the whole island of Ireland is regarded as a single entity for Interrail purposes does this mean that a Global pass which I buy would be valid for unlimited travel in Great Britain? Similarly, am I able to buy a Great Britain single country pass (as would be the case if I lived in the Republic of Ireland)?

Non reservation ticket tariff applciable to given service
Hi All, I’m looking at the eurail planner app to check out some potential trips. When I click on a train time and click on show facilities. I can see a dot point NRT tariff is applicable for given service (non reservation ticket). Does anyone know if I have a global euro pass does this mean I need to pay additional fee? Please see below as an example.
Help with Seat Reservations from Manchester to Paris
I am trying to book the trip below through Eurail and I am receiving a message that directs me to the ACP Rail website to reserve the seats. Manchester Piccadilly > Paris Nord I've spoken to a representative from ACP Rail and they shared that I am unable to book this route on their website with a Eurail pass so I am quite confused on where I can reserve seats. I have tried reaching out to Eurail and despite the chat bot saying I will receive an email, I have yet to hear back. I am hoping to receive assistance in booking seat reservations. Thank you in advance.
Holding two different passes at once?
Hello. In the fall i purchased the month pass which needs to be unlocked as of May 1st, and i plan on using starting on April 27th. I will be doing more travelling prior to this and realized that I would like to purchase the 7 day one month pass because at that point I would not like to unlock my month pass yet. Is it possible to hold two passes at once?
Not able to find train in the planner
I want to take the night train from Zurich 21:40 to Vienna 7:58 by Nightjet on the 8th of February. In the ÖBB website it appears as available and let be book it with the Interrail / Eurail - Globalpass discount. But when I try to save the ticket to my pass it does not show in the planner. What can I do?
echoing what several others have said here - i just bought a 2month/15day 1st class global pass.but as i start to look at schedules for all the trips i want to take - MOST of them are coming back with “No Prices Available” because the pass-holder quota of seats (i guess) are all sold out. so - i am starting to question the usefulness of this pass. just spend $650 - and haven’t been able to find ANY reservations for anu train i’ve wanted to get on (Stockholm - Oslo, Oslo - Bergen, Zurich - Brussels, St Moritz - Zermatt, etc). for travel in March. anyone else feel this way? any advice on canceling my pass and getting a full refund? and just buying point-to-point tickets? Appreciate your advice. I am a first time user here. NB
Hi all,Recently I bought and received a paper global pass for 7 days in 1 month. You can connect your paper pass in the app and choose to record your trips in either one. My question is as follows: if I wanted to register them in both at the same time, would that be a problem? I like the paper pass as a memento for later, but the app is also very practical. If I would record a trip in the app, but also on my paper pass, would that be wrong?
Reservation won't be posted in time??? Krakow to Prague
Hi there, We are travelling on three month global passes and keep coming up against the same issue of trying to book reservations on a train that are available to purchase (in this case Krakow to Prague) but we are unable to as it says they need to be posted out and we will not receive in time. We already booked reservations a few weeks ago when going Gothenburg to Stockholm and the reservations were emailed to us. Is there any way around the posting situation? This is becoming very frustrating as it is hindering our plans and journey. Thank you!!!

Unable to find my train timing on Thalys main website
Hello all, I will be travelling from Paris nord to brussels on 13th Feb and i had already booked a train timing from the Eurail main website and paid for seats reservation (as i have the global pass). It gives me an E ticket and it’s u see Thylas plus it fits nicely the Eurail main website and my Eurail app that generates the QR code (which is rare as the app is not up the date), and i’m feeling very relief. So recently, there have been train disruptions and strikes so i’ve been checking Thylas main website (as that is what Eurail website suggested after you press “train disruptions”) in order to make sure the train that i had booked via the Eurail website is smooth going and not disrupted. However, after keying in my train departure and arrival station i could not seems to find the booking i’ve made via eurail website using the pass on the Thylas website. Can someone please advise what is going on - does it means Eurail has set aside some booking that don’t appear on Thylas website

About Eurail Global Pass 2nd Class upgrade
Hi,I purchased a Eurail Global Pass (2nd class).Is it possible to upgrade my ride from 2nd class to 1st class for one of my rides (Zurich to Vienna)?This is because the ride is 7hours+ long and I thought if there is a way to upgrade the ticket to 1st class for just one train ride it will be nice. Thanks
