It's that reservation date really matter? Or can I board the next train?
Hello All,I made a mistake when I booked my reservations. Somehow, I did check the reservation date that I am booking. It turns out I booked my return trip and depart trip on the same day. And the worst part is, it does not seem I could make any changes to the website.Could I board the train on next day? Or should I rebook it (Is that possible to get any refund)?
Night train Zagreb to Split
I'm currently trying to book the night train from Zagreb to Split for the end of May (very last minute I know, didn't think we'd be going that way!), it says there's no availability but when I checked from Bratislava to Split (same train) there was plenty seats and couchettes available?
Hello,I have two granddaughters who are going to Spain and Italy the end of June, not a specific date yet.In Spain, they will arrive in Madrid and take day tours for one week. Then they will go by train to Rome, and also take day trips. They will go back to Madrid by train, to take the flight back to go home. They have traveled to different countries, but always with their parents. They speak English, Spanish and French. They just graduated from high school and we are given them this trip as a graduation present. I don’t want for them to have problems locating where to buy tickets etc. I want to buy the pass.Can they travel from city to city in Spain and Italy with the Eurorail pass? They will be in both countries a total of 16 days.Could anyone please let me know what I need to do or if is best to get tickets daily at the train station.Thank you very much in advance,Patricia
Travelling from Zurich to Lugano
Hello everyone,Since I am new to Interrail, I have a question. I am planning to buy an Interrail Switzerland Pass, but I am not sure if the ride from Zurich to Lugano is 100% covered by the pass or I will have to pay something extra. I am asking this because based on this map,part of the line (namely from Erstfeld to Biasca as well as from Cadenazzo to Lugano) is marked with dotted line, which means that this line is covered, but with reductions.Thanks in advance!
Reserving beds on night trains - group
In July-August 2023, I’ll be interrailing across Europe with a few friends. I’m unsure how reservations for couchettes/beds work though. My friends and I are all booking individually but is it possible for us to book the same compartment without having to reserve the whole room privately? For reference we will be travelling on the Berlin-Vienna and Naples-Milan night trains.
Question concerning journeys inside the home country
Hi, I’m planning a trip for this summer. I have a question concerning the journeys inside the home country. Let’s say I want to start from Paris, and on my way back I would to stop in another french city (let’s say Lyon) before coming back to the starting point. My question is : is the journey from Lyon to Paris included in the global pass ? Also, if I understood properly, the journeys from the starting destination (here Paris) to the first, and from the last to the starting point are not counted as days of journeys in the case of a global pass with a specified amount of days. Is that so ? Thank you ! Armand
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
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?
ICE reservation Netherlands - Germany
Hi there,I'm planning my Interrail trip for next summer. The idea is to travel from the Netherlands to Ancona or Bari (Italy) and from there take the ferry to Albania.Now it seems nice to travel to München by day train and from there take the night train to Ancona. However, I'm struggling with the ICE reservations. The most convenient route would be to take the 08.34 ICE 105 from Utrecht Centraal to Mannheim and change to the 12.30 ICE 595 to München (preferred date 10 July). Now, via the "seat only" option on the Deutsche Bahn website, I try to reserve seats for said trains. The ICE 595 seems to work fine, but for the ICE 105 it says "Reservation temporarily not possible". I've tried several times over the course of 1-2 weeks so it seems persistent and not temporary.Another option is the 11.04 ICE 123 from Utrecht to Cologne/Köln and from there the 13.55 ICE 519 to München. Seat reservations for both ICE 123 and ICE 519 can be booked just fine. So it's probably not (a) that I'm too ea
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!
Researched forums for answers, still a couple questions on reservations and supplements
Canadian couple will be traveling Europe by train with first class Global Passes already purchased, mid-May to mid-June 2023. I’ve scoured the forums and picked up the info I can, but am still just a bit confused as to the best way to make the reservations. We are new to this.I’ve used the rail planner app for initial research on the routes we’ll require reservations on, but my understanding is that it isn’t always accurate as to schedules and isn’t ideal for making the reservations through. I’m posting my trip schedule (and reservations needed as I understand it) below and would appreciate feedback on whether it appears correct and the best way to make the reservations I have to.I do understand that I need to generate a pass cover on the Eurail site to make reservations. Can I use one cover for all reservations for both my wife and me? Also, where needed, are supplements purchased with reservations?ItineraryAmsterdam to Brussels May 16th - no reservations/supplement Bruges day trip -
How can I book a day trip from Paris to Mont St Michel with my eurail pass
I would like to book a day trip from Paris to Mont St Michel (leaving 7.32am, getting back to Paris at 10.16pm or thereabouts to have time to explore) but I’m not have any luck trying to do this using my eurail pass. We (2 of us) can only do this on 9th, 10th or 11th of May, is it possible to book seat reservations, or are we too late and nothing available as I don’t seem to be able to make seat reservations. I haven’t booked anything with my pass yet and this will be our first trip and I’m now wondering if the eural pass is going to be the best option for us. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can provide for us newbies.
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
Advice fir booking Paris to Nice on 23 Nay please
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?

How to add multiple journey to same day while purchasing the pass in the planner
Hi,I want to take an Eurail pass for 2 travel days as shown in the snapshot below (this is just for example to get a solution to my problem, acutally plan is for more such one day return journeys 2 train travels)Amsterdam → Paris on 22nd May, Stay in Paris for 2 nights (This is my 1st travel day) 24th May, Take Paris → Brussels train in morning, return to Paris on same day at 6:00 PM (no stay at brussels). This is my second travel day.But when I add this information to “findl my rail pass” webpage, it counts them as 3 travel days, while actually its only 2 travel days (22 & 24th May). Please let me know if I can just add one entry here on 24th to brussels and can book 2 trains on 24th somewhere (please let me know where? rail planner app or elsewhere) to have total 3 trains on 2 Travel days. Thanks
Seat Reservation UK
London to York, i am planning to travel this line on a public holiday towards end of next month. Should i reserve a seat well in advance or would i be ok to arrange something within the week prior since there could be changes? I was looking at the LNR website and i don’t know what you would add for a booking reference since there no actual ticket being produced with pass, just QR code.
