Researched forums for answers, still a couple questions on reservations and supplements
Canadian couple will be traveling Europe by train with first class Global Passes already purchased, mid-May to mid-June 2023. I’ve scoured the forums and picked up the info I can, but am still just a bit confused as to the best way to make the reservations. We are new to this.I’ve used the rail planner app for initial research on the routes we’ll require reservations on, but my understanding is that it isn’t always accurate as to schedules and isn’t ideal for making the reservations through. I’m posting my trip schedule (and reservations needed as I understand it) below and would appreciate feedback on whether it appears correct and the best way to make the reservations I have to.I do understand that I need to generate a pass cover on the Eurail site to make reservations. Can I use one cover for all reservations for both my wife and me? Also, where needed, are supplements purchased with reservations?ItineraryAmsterdam to Brussels May 16th - no reservations/supplement Bruges day trip -
How can I book a day trip from Paris to Mont St Michel with my eurail pass
I would like to book a day trip from Paris to Mont St Michel (leaving 7.32am, getting back to Paris at 10.16pm or thereabouts to have time to explore) but I’m not have any luck trying to do this using my eurail pass. We (2 of us) can only do this on 9th, 10th or 11th of May, is it possible to book seat reservations, or are we too late and nothing available as I don’t seem to be able to make seat reservations. I haven’t booked anything with my pass yet and this will be our first trip and I’m now wondering if the eural pass is going to be the best option for us. Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can provide for us newbies.
Reservation Danemark, Suède et norvège
Bonjour,Je prépare un voyage vers la Norvège et je cherche à vérifier comment réserver les places ou les couchettes selon les train. J’ai acheté un pass pour réserver les trainsPour certains trains interrail me propose bien la possibilité de réserver les trainsMais pour certains autres trains aucune proposition n’est faitePar exemple nous souhaitons prendre le train de trondheim vers Fauske.Il existe un train de jour et un train de nuit. Il est possible de réserver les sièges pour le train de jour mais pas pour le train de nuit. Il n’est pas non plus possible sur le site de la compagnie norvégienne (www.vy.no) de ne réserver que les sièges ou la couchetteJ’avoue que je ne comprend pas trop comment il est possible de planifier un voyage sans pouvoir réserver les placesAvez-vous rencontré les mêmes problèmes ?Interrail propose t-il un support téléphonique pour ces casMerciThomas
Advice fir booking Paris to Nice on 23 Nay please
Hi I am planning our europe holiday and trying to work out the best way for us to use the eurail pass we have purchased. Do I need to purchase a reservation to get from Paris to Nice on 12 May or is there a reservation free way please? We need to make the journey that day so our date isn't flexible but we don't mind a longer scenic route if there is one?

How to add multiple journey to same day while purchasing the pass in the planner
Hi,I want to take an Eurail pass for 2 travel days as shown in the snapshot below (this is just for example to get a solution to my problem, acutally plan is for more such one day return journeys 2 train travels)Amsterdam → Paris on 22nd May, Stay in Paris for 2 nights (This is my 1st travel day) 24th May, Take Paris → Brussels train in morning, return to Paris on same day at 6:00 PM (no stay at brussels). This is my second travel day.But when I add this information to “findl my rail pass” webpage, it counts them as 3 travel days, while actually its only 2 travel days (22 & 24th May). Please let me know if I can just add one entry here on 24th to brussels and can book 2 trains on 24th somewhere (please let me know where? rail planner app or elsewhere) to have total 3 trains on 2 Travel days. Thanks
Seat Reservation UK
London to York, i am planning to travel this line on a public holiday towards end of next month. Should i reserve a seat well in advance or would i be ok to arrange something within the week prior since there could be changes? I was looking at the LNR website and i don’t know what you would add for a booking reference since there no actual ticket being produced with pass, just QR code.
Il y a quand même un très gros problème sur Railplanner. J ai besoin de 3 réservations Paris Karlsruhe sur début octobre, ce n est pas ouvert alors qu à la même date l année dernière ça l était.. D autre part, sur le site Sncf connect, il ne reste que 5 places de dispo pour notre heure, mais bien sûr on ne peut pas réserver avec un pass Interrail, et pas par téléphone non plus.. C est un peu archaïque...
I accidentally reserved a train on the wrong day, will this still count as a travel day if i don't actually travel?
I bought my interrail pass (10 travel days within 2 months) but when I tried to reserve my first train journey I accidentally reserved it a month earlier than I meant to, when I won't even be travelling so won’t have activated my pass. Will this count as a travel day even if I don’t actually travel?

Eurail Reservation Charges
Does anyone know if eurrail’s reservation service charges more than if I were to reserve elsewhere (like at a train station or at another website?) On that note, what’s the cheapest way I can make seat reservations? Do I need to make reservations to travel on the golden pass scenic train from lucerne to interlaken in switzerland? What about travel from places like bern to paris, paris to brussels, and bruges to amsterdam?
Moved my "start" date ahead, website doesn't recognise it
In the app, I set my first journey for 12 May. I was then able to find and buy reservations on the website, as long as they were on 12 May or later. If I searched for an earlier date, I got the “Your Pass isn’t valid on this date.”Then I decided to leave earlier, and added a journey leaving 27 April on the app. The “My Pass” screen confirmed that my pass now started on 27 April.But when I searched for reservations on 27 April, I was told again that my pass wasn’t valid on that date.So what gives? Does it take a while for the website to catch up to the app? Is there some other cause?Thanks!(Side note: I wanted to use the website because it often gave me the option of reserving a seat when the app didn’t.)
why do i need a seatreservation
I'm travelling from London Euston next Wednesday on the 19.46 to Liverpool Lime Street. If I go straight to Liverpool I need a € 6 seat reservation. The journey takes 2h 21m. If I take the same train from Euston without a reservation I have to change at Crewe to wait for the next EXP train that gets to LLS at 23.17, a total of 3h 31m! If I bought a normal second class ticket with a senior rail card the seat reservation is free, or not necessary. But I've already got a Senior Interrail global pass, so why the cost? Just because it's quicker, even though I'm using the same train an hour later. Or shall I just risk it and pretend I caught the earlier train from London and waited at Crewe for this one... Any suggestions 🤔
I might be in trouble here… Have planned outbound overnight from Inverness to London and then Eurostar London to Paris and beyond, then inbound back through Paris to London and overnight London to Inverness. Having activated the pass and adding journeys to my pass it says I can’t make the final journey, I guess because my outbound one covers 2 days. Is that right / any way out of this …. Already bought Cal Sleeper reservations?! Thanks, John
Night Train Unavailable from Amsterdam to Zurich
Hi,I would like to take a sleeper train from Amsterdam to Zurich early May, but the eurrail site and OBB site both say that tickets are unavailable for the night jet. I’ve already selected Interrail/eurrail pass holder for the discount and one-way travel option, but all the night jet tickets are “unavailable”. Does this mean that all the night jets are booked full? What should I do?
How can I make a reservation for Marseille to Barcelona please?
Hi there I am planning my first trip to Europe and purchased a eurail global pass but I am having trouble trying to book anything. I'd like to reserve 2 seats from Marseille to Barcelona on 17 May. I've tried ringing the France number but they can't even reserve the first leg to Nimes as they don't accept visa cards for payment. Is anyone able to tell me if it will be possible to use the eurail global pass to reserve seats from Marseille to Barcelona on 17 May please? We arrive in Paris on 8 May. The eurail pass sounded great but now I'm starting to think that it isn't going to work for us as I'm stuck. I've been reading other posts but I'm still stuck as I don't know how to make this work. Help please 🙏
Overnight trains from Paris to Nice
Hello Community. We are a family of 4 planning a European vacation this Summer, traveling by train between cities and countries. We bought the Global Pass with Eurail and are trying to book an overnight train from Paris to Nice, leaving Paris July 1, 2023 and arriving in Nice the morning of July 2nd. The only option seems to have a stop over in Marseille from midnight to 6am. We really would like to avoid sleeping in a train station. What are we missing? How can we find / book an overnight train from Paris to Nice?Thanks in advance for your support,Gabriel
Bruxelles MIDI transfer - do I have enough time?
We have what looks like 52 minutes to transfer trains in Bruxelles-MIDI from a THALYS train to a EUROSTAR train. There was a note that said check in closes 30 minutes before departure and to allow 45-60 minutes for passport control. The ticket looks like the below 14:08 - BRUXELLES-MIDI (Belgium) Thalys0h 35m (Eurostar -check in closes 30m before departure; allow 45-60m for passport control)14:52 -BRUXELLES-MIDI (Belgium) EurostarI think the 35 minutes in between is saying that is how long it takes to get from one train to the other...not sure, because it doesnt mention anything but the note next to it. Im worried that we will miss the connection and this is the train to Gatwick Airport to our flight out. We dont want to have any issues.Is anyone familiar with this process and able to guide me in terms of how this works? Where/how do you check in? Can this be done while I’m on the first train on some app or does it have to be done in the station? How long does that security/passport c
