I wanted to travel from London for example tomorrow via eurostar to Holland then return on the 28th, then i travel again on the 1st of September via eurostar to switzerland via france then return to London via eurostar before the 10th day? Is that permitted to tavel on the eurostar twice in August then September? Please i need genuine answers as have children with me thanks!
Dear Community, maybe someone knows… So we need to reserve seats for the EC from Bern to Milan, at least within Italy. When I enter Domodossola-Milano, it is 3 passengers x 12eur = total 36eur. Makes sense ;)When I enter Bern-Milan (since we don’t want to change seats in the middle of the trip) the price is 135eur!! Does that then include the ride itself - we don’t need a SBB ticket to Domodossola? We have half-fare-card and junior card for the child travelling, I believe the ride Bern-Domodossola isn’t worth 99eur. I tried booking just the reservation Bern-Milan via oebb and sbb, neither offers this... Thank you so much!!
Hello!My mum and I are travelling through Europe this winter, starting in London and ending in Venice. We are spending christmas in Colmar, France and want to do some scenic railways for two/three days through Switzerland and then end in Venice. Are most of the scenic railways not covered by the Eurorail pass? Is it then worth getting the SwissTravel Pass? Does anyone have some recommendations on routes… All and any advice is appreciate
HelloComplete newbie here thx for all info. For an Oct 1 departure I reserved a Train from Rome to Milan departing at 11:10am and Milan to Ventimiglia departing at 15:10, final destination is Nice. I booked the reservations using the Eurail website.On the Eurail App my 11:10am departing train doesn’t exist, their is a train departing at 10:50am but the train numbers don’t match. The Milan to Ventimiglia is the same departure time. To cover my butt (on the App) I tried to reserve the train departing at 10:50am but it says no reservations available. Argh!What do I need to do? I would imagine I need that 11:10am train I reserved on the website in my Eurail Pass? A reservation alone isn’t good enough from what I have read? You need a Eurail Pass ticket as well.Thx for any help. Brian from Gibsons, B.C. Canada
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
