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

Asked to update app but I have the latest version
Anyone else being barred from adding passes to your account, so you can make reservations, by a message to update the app. But when you do, you have the latest version of the app? Can’t see a way out of this? Anyone else manage to break this unhelpful loop?
How to cancel a TEST seat reservation on GWR?
Hello everyone, just now I was trying to book seat reservation for a train from London to Edinburgh in July. The system didn’t show any availability because July is still too far away. So I tested with an earlier date just to see how the reservation system works. I put in a random date and followed the steps by selecting a random train and a random seat type. (I didn’t really understand the differences among all the seat types) Then I clicked continue, the next thing it shows my booking is completed, and it also says on the page “you can’t amend or refund this booking”. I couldn’t find any options to cancel or delete this order as it was only for a test. Does anyone know what I can do in this situation?Thank you in advance.🙏
How to book a private cabin for 2 on Zurich to Berlin nightjet
Hi - My husband and I would like to take the nightjet with our Eurail Pass between Zurich and Berlin on Wed 27 July 2023. I am finding the nightjet web site choices confusing. When the time comes to create the reservation (180 days before the train ride) which option should I pick? We want a two-person accomodation, and do not wish to share with another person. Thanks! Kay
Travel in own country
The Interrail website states: “if you have an Interrail Global Pass, you can travel on one travel day to leave your country of residence (outbound) and on one travel day to return (inbound)”, ie “can” not “must”.I live in the UK. I have a pass for 4 days travel in a month. I have started my trip in Austria, ie I do not intend to use an outward journey from the UK as a travel day. The pass now tells me that I only have 2/4 travel days left. Does that mean I have lost one of my travel days, because I have not started my trip from home? If so, the website is unclear and misleading.I hope someone can help!John
How to book Nightjet from Vienna to Munich?
Hiya, we are planning to take the night jet from Venice to Munich on 31st May. I tried to book on Oebb but all the fare showing tickets not available. (I have tested with several dates) I also tried to book on Eurail reservations, there was no option of booking seats reservations either. Does the Venice to Munich nightjet open to Eurail pass holders? Thank you 🙂
To book via website or app
Hello all, I will be travelling using the Eurail global pass and inside the app it shows a timing that don’t match/show in the Eurail website. I’ll need to book seats reservations on the website and show a QR code to enter the train via the app. I’m just very confused so in this case, should i buy the seats reservations at the timing that’s shown on the website and appear in the train station without the QR code from the app (as the timing don’t match)? And if i do book the seats reservations on website and turn up on the timing that’s on the web, i don’t have the QR code to enter as the app don’t have the timing on the web, will this be alright to just show evidence of my seats reservation?
First timer - help with exit from UK!
Hi,We bought the 7 day pass on a bit of a whim and are now thinking over logistics. Considering possible taking it down to a 4 day trip instead with us paying some tickets ourselves We are travelling with an 8 and 10 year old and coming from Glasgow. My initial idea was Glasgow - London - Paris on day one but it’s going to be quite a long day so I’m trying to think of alternatives but not sure I can or if I’m picking up the pass rules correctly. I’ve put in bold the days I’m questioning:Idea 1 - reducing down to 4 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Get the Eurostar (we would pay the Eurostar trip as it’s not much more than the seat reservations would be anyway). Day 2: Paris to Black Forest Day 3: Black Forest to Paris Eurostar home to London where we would stay a night or so Day 4: London to GlasgowIdea 2 - keeping 7 day pass:Day 1: Glasgow to London and stop over for a night Day 2: Get the Eurostar to Paris Day 3: Paris to Black Forest Day 4: A stop somew
How do I pay for the seat reservation fee after the tickets are added to my Eurail pass?
Hello everyone, my husband and I are doing a 3-month trip in Europe in April. Recently we tried to get our trip planned and have all the train rides booked and accommodations booked and confirmed. We bought the 1st class Eurail Global Pass continuous pass for 3 month. However, after I activated our passes, I saved some trips to our passes and turned on the button of one of the trips, and I went to “My Pass” section, clicked “show tickets”, I could see the ticket with a QR code, but couldn’t see any button for the payment options for the seat reservation fee. (it does show “seat reservations required with orange colour under the Journeys)Could anyone please advise me how to pay the seat reservation fee on the app to secure the seat as we need to book our accommodations based on the train times. Thank you in advance :)
Start date of Eurail pass
I just purchased a 10 day 2 month global pass. i want to now book eurostar which happens to be at the end of my 2 months eurail pass 20 June. Can I go and book this and not activate the pass, as I will commence travel 2 months prior (21 April) to the eurostar booking. Gosh this is all so confusing
I have booked seat reservations in advance Brussels to Paris on April 25 using the link to Belgian trains provided in this community and had no issue booking the seats, however the seat confirmation lists the train number as 9422 whereas the one I have in my journey is 9322.They are both Thalys, leaving Bruxelles-Midi and 10.13.I am wondering why the numbers are different, I can’t imagine 2 Thalys trains leaving at exactly the same time. If it is this same train will I have an issue with the ticket and seat reservation having different numbers?
Can you hop on an OBB Nightjet at stopping stations (not starting station)?
Dear Eurail Community,I would like to ask, I have booked an OBB Nightjet reservation from Amsterdam to Innsbruck. As you can see the route is as below. The thing is, I am planning to hop on the nightjet train at Dusseldorf Hbf and not from Amsterdam Centraal.Is this okay? Will i be considered no show? Will my sleepers still exclusively booked for me or not? Thank you very much.Regards,Teguh Perdana Putra
Seat reservation valid for part of journey only Trieste to Brescia
I have booked a number of seat reservations for trains in Italy through OBB (many thanks to guidance on the process from those on this forum). One of the journeys is from Trieste to Brescia, involving a change of train at Padova. But the seat reservation says it is only valid as far as Venezia Mestre (the stop before Padova). Can anyone tell me why, and whether I should worry about it? Many thanks
