Traveling to a destination that is not served by a nighttrain - does it count as 1 or 2 travel days?
I would like to travel from the Netherlands to Bologna. There are many possible routes. But if I for example travel from the Netherlands to Basel using a nighttrain and then take the train from Basel to Bologna with a transfer in Milano. Does this count as 1 day? Or 2 days? I guess that if stopped my journey in Milano it would count as 1 day, but if I then take a train from Milano to Bologna, it could count as 2 days (although it is within 24 hours). Can anybody help me? Many thanks in advance.
Is train travel in Spain possible without seat reservations?
I read on interrail.eu, ‘More often than not, you need to make advance reservations for trains in Spain’. Is this true? Is it usually not possible to travel in Spain without seat reservations? Is the Interrail app information reliable where this is concerned? How can I find Spanish trains where it is not necessary to have a seat reservation?
nightjet train from munich to venice april 30 sold out?
I’m trying to book a seat reservation on the nightjet from munich to venice for april 30th of this year. I believe seat reservations can be purchased 90 advance for the nightjet so today should have been the first day one would be able to make reservations, however there are no ticket prices loading. Was wondering if seat reservations really sold out that quickly or if you are just unable to make reservations yet.

SNCF groupe booking
Hi,I have purchased a group booking (10 people) for a TGV journey next week. I am worried as 1 person is now unable to come with us. They are happy to pay for their ticket but we will not/cannot remove 1 more person (as the group minimum is 10). My question is, will it be a problem if we turn up to board the train with only 9 people? Thanks for any help in advance
Rome/Palermo - Help please with sleeper car reservations.
I booked and paid for reservations from Rome to Palermo for 13/4/23 on train 1955. After paying for the overnight train, ($265) for two people, we were assigned seats that appear to be not together. Seats 31 and 22. Is this correct so we are in sleeper cars together? Please assist me because I would hate to be in separate seating (not together) and not in sleeper car.Thank you!
What's the difference between TGV6077 and TGV6177 from Paris Gare de Lyon to Nice Ville?
Hi everyone, I was trying to book seat reservations (for Eurail pass holders) for a train from Paris Gare de Lyon to Nice Ville on 13 May on travel.b-europe.com, it came up with two different options of the same departure time (13:54), both trains are direct trains with the exact same travel time, departure time, and arrival time.One of the train number is TGV6077 with a beverage symbol next to it and shows all the stops along the way. The other train number is TGV6177 without a beverage symbol and shows no stops along the way. So my question is are these trains both exactly the same or TGV6177 doesn't serve drinks and without stopping while TGV6077 serves drinks and stops in all the stops showing in the details?Are both these trains TGV INOUI?Thank you so much in advance.Please refer to the pictures below:
InterRail pass with 3 travel days?
Hello,We’re two persons who wants to go from Denmark to Amsterdam. Earlier this week we were able to find tickets for the journey with three traveldays, making it possible for us to go back and forth + one day with an excursion.But it suddenly seems like it has vanished from the website, leaving us with 4 traveldays as our only option, plus the tickets appr. 130 euro more expensive.Does anyone know if the 3 day ticket still is available?Thanks in advance.
Everything is more expensive, except the global pass?
Last year I bought a Global Pass 1st class (15 days in 2 months) and it costed 680 euros (just checked my bank account). Maybe I want to buy this pass again this year, so I checked and I noticed the price is 657 euros, 23 euros less. Of course cheaper is nice, but since everything has become more expensive, I wonder if this price is the correct one. Anyone who can tell me?
Trouble reserving seats on line (Paris - Milan)
I want to reserve seats on a direct trip May 27 TGV 9245 (Paris - Milan). But when I try, I see in my cart Torino- Milan. It is supposed to be a direct train. Even if I have to change trains in Torino - I do not see an option to reserve Paris to Torino. Can the reservation be done on line? (I activated my pass). THank you
How to book our trip from Amsterdam to Instabul?

Eurail Pass & Reservations
My friend and I have purchased the 3 month global eurail pass. I just want to confirm that the only thing we have to do is reserve seats on the trains? Do we have to get tickets? For example we have booked seat reservations for London to Paris through the rail planner app, and we have these sent to our email. Is there anything else we need to do or do we then rock up for the train on the day? Thank you!!!
Travel days - Night train
Hello,i am travelling this summer with the 7 days in a month pass and i want to go from Sofia to Istanbul with the night train. I heard that i can buy my ticket at the station but i was wandering if it count as a travel day. I’d like to know if buying a ticket at the station is different than adding a journey to the pass. Also, i want to do the same with the ferry from patra (greece) to ancone(italy) and from ancone to split. I think there is a discount for people travelling with an interrail pass but i don’t know if this kind of journey count as a travel day.if anyone know…
Seat reservations in France
Hi. We’re a family of four trying to book (2nd class) seat reservations for April. We’ve managed to get reservations via the eurail website for our Amsterdam to Bruges journey but the journey down to Lyon and then back up Paris is drawing blanks on all trains on all days. Surely not all of the pass holder allocations have booked already? Any advice or help very much appreciated as I am losing the plot trying to figure out how or where to get these reservations booked.
First time Eurail user - Flexible
My plan is to buy the pass then aim to travel from UK to France at the start of March. I don’t have a set date and I don’t have a set schedule; just stop where I like depending on the weather and move on when I’m done. Planning to circle Europe (through France down to Monte Negro, then back up and across to Spain and Portugal before returning to UK via France. The ‘7days in a month’ pass looks the best deal to me.My question is: do I need an itinerary? Every time I visit the Eurail site it keeps asking me for ‘destination’ and ‘plan your trip’…? My destination is back home eventually, and I don’t want to make a set plan…...is this Ok with Eurail or do I need to specify anything?Many thanks, Andy
Specific seat reservation: Stuttgart-Paris
I would like to make seat reservations with our Eurail passes for the following train:July 16, Stuttgart 14:52 - Paris Est 18:05, ICE 9572. Seat reservations are required. The Rail planner app says that you can book this train only up to 90 days in advance, but tickets are already for sale at DB, for example. Can I book seats directly on the DB website or some other way? Thank you.
Ticket from Home country (CH) to One-country-pass-country
Hi everyone, We're planning on getting the one-country-pass for Italy. Our country of residence is Switzerland. So the ticket won't be valid in CH, only after the border.The connection will be Bern-Milano-Rome. I can't figure out how to get a ticket from Bern to Milan. Will the interrail ticket be valid from the border (Domodossola) or only after the first stop in Italy?The lady at the SBB counter said I needed to purchase the Anschlusszug-ticket from Bern to Milan (?) via Interrail, not via SBB. I can't find any info on connecting trains on the interrail website…HELP! Thank you so much.
Terminology - a "trip" is . . .
First of all - thanks to all on the forum for the clarifications provided over the last few days. You have eased my path significantly.What I think I’ve realised is that the term trip as used in the Interrail context seems to be misleading. Trip as used in the app is a collection of potential moves from point A to point B, point B to point C, but also point B to points D, E, F, G & H - it’s like a pick list or a wish list. You can define any number of journeys in a trip, and you can travel on some or all of them. So it’s not actually a trip. Your actual trip may go A-B-C-H, or maybe A-B-C-E.A trip in Interrail terms is only a list of possible travel legs which may or may not be taken.A trip in ordinary usage is an actual journey - “I’m planning a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Nice(D), via London(B) and Paris(C).” or “I took a trip from Edinburgh(A) to Milan(H), via London(B) and Paris(C). I went to Milan instead of Nice because the weather was bad in Nice on the day.”It may seem
Seat Reservations for French trains
I am trying to buy seat reservations for France. It’s slightly more than 90 days so I can’t book the reservations through the Rail Planner app as they are not available yet.However each time I look the trains seem to be booking out quickly so is there a way I can book them on the French rail SNCF website? I can’t find where to do it anywhere through the search function on their website.
I have just purchase my global pass today and I am trying to make a reservation. Why would it show that the train that I am booking requires a seat reservation but at the same time does not engage so that I can actually reserve a seat. If the train is fully booked, I would hope that it would tell me so but it does not. The seat reservation is for 3 months from today.
