To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
The Intterail app explains that a supplement is required and that it is included in reservation. But when I go to make reservation there is no option to add supplement (unless I am missing something) and the reservation amount is not enough to include supplement. So is it really an option to pay the supplement through the app? And if not what is the best way to do this?
We only have an online seat reservation and it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to get a paper copy before we board our train (in Spain). What will be the consequences for us when we show the ticket collector our reservations on our phone instead of paper? Eurail tells us they must be on paper but doesn’t say what will happen when we try and use the online ones.
Hello, I am wanting to book the Bernina Express on the 25th September 2023 from Lugano to St Moritz, however it says it is unavailable. I understand there is a section of the railway that is closed. Can someone please clarify what is available? Is there still a panoramic option?Many thanks!
Hi,I’m planning a trip from the UK to Italy and I was thinking to do London → Paris → Milan → Bologna but I can’t find any train on the 16th of December for Paris → Milan, the last day in which I can find a train is on the 9th of December.Does anyone know when they publish the rest of the timetable? It makes quite hard to plan and wait as I may need to go by flight instead if I can’t book a train and flights are getting expensive.It’s strange that Paris → Milan is the only route that I can’t book but everything else is there.Thanks
Good morning.I am completely new to Interrail and intend to purchase a Global / Mobile pass. I want to travel from my home in UK to Paris or Barcelona on the same day.Home to London St Pancras, and then London St Pancras to Paris or Barcelona, have to be booked separately. Will that arrangement still count both as only one travel day and my one allowed outward journey? I think that is the case but would value confirmation, or otherwise.I’d be doing the same in reverse on my return journey.Many thanks for any advice. Bob
Hi everyone,I’m travelling with my elderly parents and noticed recently that trains from Zurich to Italy have changed route recently.Some of the trains now say reservation not required. I’m worried that we won’t be able to get a seat if you can’t reserve a seat on these trains. Is there a way to guarantee a seat on these trains? Please see below a screenshot for your reference. Also, the direct trains which say reservation required on the app then say on the reservation website that prices are unavailable- are these booked out?Thanks all!Waz
I’m having trouble booking seat reservations with my paper pass. The website takes me to a page where I have to choose which trip I'd like to book reservations for, so I made a trip, but I need to add travellers to the trip, and this is is where it goes wrong. I’m clicking ‘add a traveller’ which takes me to a page where I have to choose mobile or paper pass, so I choose the ‘paper pass’ option, and instead of taking me to a new page, it just takes me back to the page where I have to choose the trip. So basically it’s just a cycle.
Hi we are travelling from Vienna to Salzburg and would like to take the Semmering Railway scenic route. Can you recommend the best way to plan this journey and are there only high speed trains out of Vienna on this route? Travelling in early September. Thanks .. Mazzy
We are a group of 8 all first timers using the inter rail pass.We have our itinerary sorted, we have purchased our Eurostar seat reservations outward and return.The first day we are travelling from the midlands to Berlin, question is what do we do regarding activating passes /recording journeys taken?Also when required to show proof of validity to travel what are you required to show? CheersAndy
Hello,I am having difficulty finding a night train from Milan to Geneva, or Milan to Lyon, that does not involve long waits at a station in the middle of the night or the early hours. For me, this defeats the object of a night train: board it in the evening and wake up at the destination!Thank you for any help or clarification you can bring, Brian.
The recent derailment in the St Gotthard tunnel is likely to impact the EuroCity service between Zurich and Milan. I’ve got a reservation on the Zurich → Milan EC for the evening of 1st Sept. TrenItalia is being unclear, suggesting that normal service may be restored by then. Public media suggests otherwise.My problem is a connection to the ongoing sleeper from Milan → Bari.Does anyone have better information on the service impact? CheersAhado
Hi folks -First time here, so apologies if I’m in the wrong place, or asking the wrong kind of question!I have a reservation for next Monday, 21st Aug, (made last week through interrail.eu) for x2 passengers from Basel to Bologna (changing in Milan). But I have just received an SMS from Trenitalia to say the first leg of this (EuroCity 153, Basel-Milan, Dep 15:03) is cancelled.😒 The message was not entirely clear on the cause, but googling around indicates that it is presumably due to the recent freight train derailment in the Gotthard tunnel (but that’s a week ago, so unclear why they are only cancelling NOW).Anyway, I’m now trying to find an alternative routing, but don’t think I can trust the interrail planner (which seems to still show the original service). So any help or advice would be appreciated.NB: my journey actually starts in Paris. I have a separate reservation from Paris to Strasbourg arriving at 12:41. I was planning to make an (unreserved) connection to Basel (arriving
Hi,I'm a UK resident with a mobile pass and intending to travel to Brussels via London on the Eurostar on my first travel day. I have added a train from my home station to London Euston as one journey and my Eurostar journey as a second journey. I'm planning on a long connecting time in London because of the possibility of rail disruption (and also it will be lunchtime!) Is this acceptable or will I be unable to add the Eurostar once I've activated the pass (because of the one journey in your home country rule) and added my UK connection? Should I try and combine both trains into one journey?
Good morning,I’ve been trying to make a reservation on the night train from Krakow to Budapest for August 27th-28th nights. However, I keep getting problems. When trying through cd.cz I got an error and contacted them, their answer was to get in touch with pkp, but pkp isn’t answering my emails. Moreover, I’m not able to buy through their website since it seems to be compulsory to buy this tickets with their “super offer”. This doesn’t enable me to untick a box and the following message is shown: “Pilot sales are underway. Currently, only Super Promo International tickets may be purchased for this e-IC route, provided that promotional tickets are available. Their availability depends on the purchase date and the amount of promotional tickets used.” Thus, I cannot select Interrail pass. Only other possible options I’ve come up with are booking it through Hungarian Railways (mav), but it charges 67€ for just a seat (no option for couchettes), making no interrail discount even when adding
basically my question is if I can get into a train that, let’s say, leaves at 17.00h even though I made a seat reservation for that same train but a few minutes later, for instance, 17.35h. my friends and I are booking seats and we are trying to leave time gaps between the different trains we are catching in prevision of something going wrong. but we wondered: if nothing went wrong and we were able to catch and earlier train than the one we booked, if it would be legal to get it. thaaanks
