To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Hello. I have purchased a 1 day Eurail pass (France). I am planning to travel from Barcelona to Paris on September 3rd. When I try to make a seat reservation it says “Your pass isn’t valid in some of these countries”. Everything I have read online says this Eurail pass allows travel between Barcelona and Paris so I am confused why this is happening. Does anyone have any ideas?
Travelling on a one month continuous 1st Class Interrail Pass. I have a 2nd class seat reservation on the 07.38 tomorrow (20 July) from Warszawie Centralna to Trakiszki (Poland), arriving at 13.24, and also a 2nd class seat reservation on the 13.25 from Trakiszki (Lithuania) to Vilnius, arriving at 17.34.Tonight (11.30pm 19 July) just before turning on for bed and setting my alarm for an early morning rise, I find that although I can find these trains in the planner and add them to My Trip they will not show up as a ticket in My Pass after moving the slider from grey to yellow. I am worried. I have tried adding the journeys manually with the correct departure and arrival times as shown on the seat reservations, but with the same result - no ticket.The woman in the ticket office in Gdańsk where I purchased the Warsaw-Trakiszki seat reservation sold me a 2nd class seat reservation, and told me I’d have to buy one from the Lithuanian train conductor for the Trakiszki-Vilnius leg. When I g
Is my plan for West & South EU for around 4 weeks doable? What wouldnt you recommend and what to add/change?
Im new to this so any recommendations/info is appreciated!I want to experience a few citys, historic places and specific nature.I would be able to tour Europe for like 4 weeks. I’d start around either Cologne for “West” or around Frick(Switzerland) for “South”. Maybe I could split these two for two seperate routes since I haven’t found any good connections at all between “West” and “South”. Also it would be great to visit authentic restaurants, preferably near these places, for traditional meals/foods that are also vegetarian based, which I’m currently researching. Spending the nights luxuriously is not a priority, in fact I’d be more than good with hostels/couch sharing/ airbnb. The travel is in focus not the hotel.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////Legend:[?] = spots to stop by if doable but not essential[*] = Each star indicates my guess on minimim time needed to spend here////////

My friends and I are planning on travelling from Edinburgh next summer and I was wondering if my Global Pass would cover my trip from Edinburgh to London, and London to Paris? Or if it would just cover my trip from Edinburgh to London and we would cover the cost from London to Paris?
I went interrailing years ago and am thinking of doing so again. I’d be gone 2-3 months and so am looking at the newly available tickets for those periods. I don’t have a smart phone though, are they available as paper tickets, or only through the app?If paper, are they just one, or two/three separate one month tickets? Thanks.

Hi, this is my first time using a Eurail ticket, and I’ve spent hours trying to make seat reservations for Polish trains in September. We’re traveling from Berlin to Gdansk, then a few days later from Gdansk to Poznan, and from there to Hamburg, Germany. The train from Berlin to Gdansk, EC59, leaves at 12:52.It’s not possible to book seat reservations for this train on the Eurail site (it says Prices Unavailable). Next, I tried Bahn.de - same thing, seat reservations not available (train tickets are, so I know the train isn’t full, but then I can’t use my Eurail pass).Next I tried the Polish website, PKP Intercity. I can see the train that I want to take on that site, but there is no discount for Eurail pass holders, only for “Youth”. Later trains seem to be available, e.g. one at 13:51 via Poznan, but they cannot be booked online, the message says “You can buy a ticket for this connection at the counter”. No option to purchase a seat reservation. And since I’m not in Poland, I can’t
Hi, all! I bought a pass for 5 members of my family for upcoming travel. I also purchased reservations (for all 5 of us) through the website for two different trains. I have not activated our passes yet.Now with our trip approaching I was trying to set up the mobile app, and discovered that the trips I created online don’t carry over. While traveling, I was planning to use the mobile app to activate the pass, activate travel days, and add additional tickets for trains that don’t require reservations. But I can’t figure out how this will work with the two trips I’ve already booked.I was thinking I could do everything through the website instead, but I can’t see how to get tickets for trains that don’t require reservations through the website. Can someone help me with how to proceed? We leave in a week and I’m beginning to regret buying these passes; everything has been so complicated. :( Thanks for any help!
Halloich habe eine konkrete Frage. Wir möchten von Hamburg nach Fredericia in Dänemark fahren und haben festgestellt, dass es einen reservierunngspflichtigen Abschnitt von Schleswig nach Padborg gibt, für den man aber keine separate Reservierung kaufen kann.Müssen wir nun ein Ticket für diesen Abschnitt kaufen oder steigen wir mit unserem Global Pass einfach in den Zug?Danke für eure Antworten, es ist relativ dringend (zeitlich)Viele Grüße, Kerstin
Hi,I recently bought my Interrail pass and started to reserve seats. I would’ve need a ticket from Amsterdam - London on the 11st of August. I saw that there is no more seat on the Interrail site, so I checked the SNBC’s site. After pressing “Later trains” I found a train, got happy and reserved it… for 30th of August (accidentally). We have several other parts of the journey purchased so impossible to travel on the 30th of August.I tried the date changing on SNCB and on Eurostar as well, but I should pay around 700 euros. Do you have any idea what to do now? I found alternative ways to London from Brussels, and it would be okay for me, but I already paid 100 euros to a seat I will not need. Maybe there is a chance to get my money back or change the reservation to 11th of August? Thank you!
Hi All, I'm trying to travel from Munich to Zagreb via the overnight EuroNight 40237 train on February 4th but when I try to buy from the ÖBB website it's saying there are no options available in all of the options (seats, couchettes, sleepers). I've tried other dates, varying from today to the end of February and none of them seem to have any options so I don't think the trains are sold out. Additionally I've tried changing the starting location to Salzburg but it's still the same outcome. Is there some issue with the ÖBB website? Thanks :))
Dear Interrail Community,I am planning my outbound train from Germany to France but have to fight against restrictions everywhere. It seems like there is no escape from Germany.My aim is to reach Paris (FR) from Aachen (GER). Traveling with the Thalys via Bruxelles (BE) is not included in the Interrail pass since its journey crosses Belgium. For all DB trains like the ICE which are crossing borders to France (somewhere via Mannheim/Saarbrücken (GER)) a reservation is required. But it is not possible to get a reservation especially for this type of train without booking a ticket. I already had a pretty short call with the DB support and they redirected me to the Interrail support (looks like you 😄). So they where not able to support or offer any other solution.How is it possible to leave Germany without paying for an extra ticket? Thank you in advance,Jonathan To mention:German France Interrail Pass (Friendship Pass 7days in 1month)Aachen -> Paris (probably via Saarbrücken)
My husband and I are trying to plan a big anniversary trip in July 2024 to Europe. We will also have our youngest child with us (9 yrs old at time of travel). We are planning to spend between 21-30 days there using Eurail as our primary source of transportation. Our anticipated destinations include Dublin, London, Paris, Versailles, Venice, Rome, Portofino, Barcelona, and Madrid. We mostly want to experience ancient architecture, landscapes, culture, and cuisine, but will also concede to popular tourists attractions. We have a rough agenda, but hope to have more of a laissez faire sort of vibe for flexibility.Is Eurail user friendly? Child friendly? How easy are seat reservations to make? Must they be made very far in advance? Is the first class ticket worth the extra $$? What roadblocks or challenges do seasoned Eurail travelers see for us? Are there any must-do child/family activities at either of these locations? Is our timeline realistic? What advice would you have for first-time-t
Hi.We would like to travel soon (1 week+) with the Greek Islands Interrail pass.Unfortunately the 6 days pass only exists in paper option and won’t be mailed on time for departure.Do you know how easy it is to get it directly from a train station in France/ Italy the day of departure, and if we can book the international ferry crossing with Anek without actually having the paper pass yet ?Thank you in advance for your quick response.Stanislas
Hi, my parents and I plan on travelling from Den Haag Centraal (Netherlands) to Milano Centrale (Italy). Basically, we were planning our travels on 18/06/2023 for the travel date 03/01/2023 and we found a timetable, for which we bought a seat reservation for. But now it’s dissapeared, but I can still find the timetable on other train apps, so we know it’s still going, but that the railplanner app doesnt show it. But I’m under the impression that in order to use our mobile passes we need to generate passes for the specific trains, which you do through the railplanner app, and we can no longer do that since the route does not show up anymore. Does anyone have a solution for this? The alternative that the railplanner app is showing is a worse option, that requires more seat reservation, and on different trains than the train that we already reserved our seat on. I’ve attached the image of the original route we planned on taking. Any info would be very much appreciated!
I just purchased a global Eurail pass and created a Eurail account, and now I want to reserve a seat to get from Vienna to Amsterdam (any route possible).I’ve tried multiple different routes, days, browsers etc. but every time when I get to the check out screen, the system runs an error and says “something went wrong”. I’ve sunk 6 hours into trying to reserve this trip. It’s really frustrating.Am I missing something?
