No Seat Reservations Paris- Barcelona - should I risk booking in person on the day?
Hello! I am trying to make reservations from Paris to Barcelona on Tuesday 7th June (eventually ending up in Lisbon) and we’re now struggling to find ways to make seat reservations. Is it very risky to book in person at the station on the same day or the day before or have people generally had much more success with this rather than reserving online? It’s my first time using a Global Pass and we thought this would be smooth and easy to use when we were looking this last couple of months… but now we’ve bought the pass it feels a lot more stressful and unavailable than we initially thought! 🥺
Europe travel: from Zurich to Rome, to Florence and then Venice. Does the Global Pass cover this?
Hello everyone! I will be traveling to Switzerland and Italy and was checking to see if 1 multiple days Eurail pass suffice for all travel within Switzerland. I plan to go from Zurich to Rome, to Florence and then Venice. Not sure if global pass will cover all the trains. Thank you in advance for your guidance!
Trenitalia tickets issued as 1st class for 2nd class pass holders
I have a couple of questions about the tickets (seat reservations) I received from Trenitalia booked via Interrail.The ticket says we reservated First Class tickets, but we reservated second class (our pass is for second class). Why? We are all 16/17 years old and is says we are adults. Is this correct?
How to book night train reservations - italy?
Hi - this may be a stupid question but I need all the help I can get with booking night trains for italy.I have found the trains I want on both italiarail and trentitalia websites but neither of these sites have an obvious option for applying the interrail pass to the booking. But when I try the interrail/eurrail reservation system it does not find any of the trains even though both other sites clearly have booking available.This is specifically for booking a night train/sleeper cabin.
Trains from/to Lithuania and Latvia

Seat reservation website extremely slow!!
Dear Interrail community,I need to make seat reservations from Milan to Bern for the EC leaving at the 7th of March at 11am. Unfortunately, I can't make the reservations here in Parma as the train station isn't large enough to do this. Now I wanted to book the seats via your website, but it's since a couple of days the reservation page is so slow, it takes me half an hour just to type in the "Milan" as a starting point (30min is not over exaggerated; I've tried this multiple times over the last couple of days). Therefore, I haven't been able to complete a booking, but I need a reservation on the train. Can you please help me? It's quite urgent. (Also, if you could fix that bug on your website, that would also do the trick.) Hope you can help me,Maxi
Reservation for Renfe train made by phone
I just called renfe and made a seat reservation for me and my children (all with interrai passes). The operator gave me a code, called something like Locator number, and told me I need to find it in the interrail site to pay for the seat reservations.They also said they will send the code to my email.1 - Does anyone know where can I add this Locator number in the interrail site? Has anyone some experience with renfe and this way of booking seat reservations?2 - What are best practices when the seat reservation is not possible to do in the interrail site? Neither on deutsche bahn site and neither on scnf or renfe… etcI did not get any email from them… now I am afraid there is no seat reservation and I will miss this connection :(Thank you in advance for any help.
Train from Hamburg to Copenhagen - no longer a train
Hi! A few weeks ago I added the train from Hamburg to Copenhagen at 10.53-15.35 on the 6th of August to the interrail app. Now my friends have tried to do the same thing but it says it is no longer a train even though I checked on the Germany Rail Transport website (Deutsche Bahn) that it is still an existing train. What could be the problem? I specify that it was not a train that needed a reservation.
Tirano - Milano trains in the summer
Hi! During our journey accross Europe we will be taking the Bernina express from Chur to Tirano over the Alps. We will be arriving in Tirano the 29th of June, and are planning to travel to Milano from there. However, on both the Railplanner app and Trenord's (the operator) website there are no trains on this stretch at this date. On Trenords website the usual schedule with trains several times a day stops the 26th of June. After that there is only one connection which says "not purchasable". Is this simply because they have not yet updated their website with summer timetables? I cannot find any information about construction work on the line. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to Trenord's website with the date I want to travel: [https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&destination=MILANO%20CENTRALE&from=20220629&fromstart=08:00&fromend=23:59](https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&de
Do multiple train rides count for 1 travel day?
Hi, me and my wife are planning to go to Europe this May. If for example I bought a 5 day Eurail Global Pass for a month and I went to London from Paris using eurostar in the morning and went back to Paris from London in late afternoon, would that only count for 1 day? Meaning I still have 4 day eurail pass left? Thank you.
Name on reservation; 1 ticket for 2 people correct? Nighttrain Berlin - Budapest-Keleti
Hi all, my boyfriend and I made a reservation for a nighttrain from Berlin to Budapest-Keleti. When I download the ticket it is one ticket which says '’02 seats'’ but only my name is on it. Is it correct that you get 1 ticket for 2 people? We never made a reservation before so I want to double check everything. Btw: we checked the invoice and we did pay for the both of us. Thanks in advance!
Making reservations - 'Continue to traveler details' button does not work
While booking train reservations for my Global Pass, the ‘continue to traveler details’ button does not work at all, even after I filled in all the information required. I think the button is broken. Can anyone help? This is a Milan Centrale - Venezia S. Lucia journey.
How to make seat reservations for a group with mobile passes?
I can make a reservation for only myself (In the interrail reservation system) , but as soon as more than one person is part of the trip it shows “NOT AVAILABLE” for every single connection (even though before it said that there are still many seats available). This goes for any train in Europe as far as we've seen. It says by the grey I (for information) that you can only reserve seats for people who are known in your acount, yet i can't seem to figure out how to add someone with a mobile pass to my account. We'd like to be seated togheter for our trips, is there any way this is possible if we all have mobile passes.I'm really hoping someone can help me I've been researching and trying things for two weeks now.Kind regards
Can't make a seat reservation: KARLSRUHE HBF (Germany) - PARIS EST (France)

When is my seat reserved?
I’ve bought a pass at this point and understand generally how to use it and the concept of reservations. However, what I’d like to know is when, when I don’t have a reservation, is my seat confirmed/reserved? When I’m on the train? Do I then not make it on if reservations fill up or others with the EURAIL pass beat me to boarding?
ticket reservations in spain
HiI am finding ticket reservations for trains in Spain to be challenging, Can anyone advise?I understand long distance/high speed trains in Spain need reservations. You must collect reservations within 72 hrs of booking, at a station in Spain. However these reservations are released to general public 24 hrs before departure and therefore you loose the reservation, if not collected 24 hrs before departure. I am also told there are no charges for reservationsMy first station is Barcelona and I want to go straight on to Madrid I cannot use a reservation because my arrival will be less than 24 hrs from departure.It appears the only solution is for me to go to the ticket office in Barcelona and show my Interail pass and hope there are seats that I can use to get to Madrid. Is this correct?Then if there are seats available I presume these are free with my Interrail pass- Is this also correct. If I am missing something please advise. Thanks Malcolm
How to know the correct train
So I’m travelling in a few days and am deciding what trains to get my the Interrail app. By the app, it says that none of these trains need a reservation. But when I get to the train station how do I know which train to get on and if my pass covers it? On the app it says ICE 645, from Berlin Hbf- Brussels central with a couple of change overs. Will this be shown at the train station and how would I know which platform to get on etc. Also, when I need to get off for a change over how will I know to do this? I know that people have said to check online as well as using the app but how do I know which train service I’m checking for? And for each country, how do I know this too.
Hi! I’ve been searching for the best train connections on multiple sites (interrail site, railplanner app and DB) but now I wanted to check if these trains are included in the interrail pass. One of my trains (Triëste - Ljubljana) showed up on the interrail website as “Details unavailable”. It’s a RE train so I think it’s without reservations but it crosses the border (so I’m not sure anymore). I don’t want to book this train, just want to know if I can take it (without reservations). This also showed up for the S-bahn from Brennero Brenner to Innsbruck, but the interrail site (https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/trains-europe/trains-country/trains-austria) told me that it’s included. I checked the page for Slovenia (https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/trains-europe/trains-country/trains-slovenia) but the Trieste-Ljubljana route isn’t listed under the international routes. Does someone know if this train is included in the pass or not? Thanks!
impossibilità prenotazione freccia rossa
Salve, ho provato attraverso tre itinerari diversi disponibili su railplanner ad arrivare a Parigi da Reggio Calabria e in ciascuno dei tre itinerari (anche quello che contiene un treno non coperto da interrail che sarei disposto a pagare a parte) è presente almeno un treno i cui posti non è possibile prenotare, sono due giorni che mi dice che il problema si risolverà tra qualche ora. Ho notato che è un problema presente per la maggior parte delle prenotazioni dei freccia rossa nell'intorno all'11 agosto
