Is the Eurail pass valid for 10 destination so 10 train rides in 2 months?
I would like to know if Iunderstand this correctly. I know it's lockdown in eu. This is for future reference only. The Eurail pass that costs more than €300 is good for 10 destinations within 2 months, right?This means that I can travel/ride the train 10x regardless of my destination in eu as long as it's within 2 months. For example, I'm coming from Italy. I'd like to go to Vienna and stay there for a while. That is 1 travel, right?
Seat reservations in France, not through the interrail system
Hello everyone!I’m a bit stuck with the reservations. I have my global mobile pass, and I’m supposed to get back to Hungary from Besancon, France on the 5th of December, but it seems that Interrail is out of seats for the trains that I’m trying to book. Are there any other ways that I could book reservations for my trains? I’m having a hard time reaching the English speaking operators of SNCF, and I’m afraid I’m running out of time. Can you help me please?

Reservation Spain and France
Hello everyone, everything good?I'm having trouble reserving my seats.I will arrive in Barcelona on December 21st of this year, I need to take a train to Madrid on the same day and back to Barcelona on the 24th of the same month. I cannot make reservations over the internet.The same is happening for my journey from Barcelona to Paris on December 30th. From what I understand, trains departing from Spain need to be booked at the station, my fear is to arrive there on December 21st and not have any more seats for the trip, I already have a hotel and Eurail Global Pass reserved.Can you help me? How should I proceed? Do you believe I will get seats for the trips I mentioned? Thank You!
Seat Reservation with TGV with SNCF
Hello, I’m trying to reserve seats on the Barcelona-Sants to Paris leg of my Madrid-Paris trip (I know for the first leg I have to reserve seats in person at a Spanish station). On the Eurail website I try to use the reservation service, but it says the departure date is too close for the paper reservation tickets to be delivered to me at my home. It also says it’s too close to departure for the tickets to be delivered to my hotel in Madrid. Unfortunately, I am not yet in Madrid to reserve the tickets in person, nor will I arrive until the night before departure. What options are available other than testing my luck at 5pm at the Madrid train station before a 10am departure the next day? It makes me nervous since the website says TGV limits eurail pass holders per train. I want to make sure we’re able to get to our destination. Any advice?
Mobile Pass Questions
Hello, I want to buy an interrail pass, but I would like to know 2 things:Is the mobile pass always 100% refundable (even after the promo ends - 30th November)? And if so is it usually more expensive than the paper pass? Can I exchange my mobile pass for a paper pass? If so what does it involve?Thank you for all the help you can give!
Problems with Eurail app date selection
When searching for a train connection and selecting a date for travel, the app shows me routes on a different day (that I don’t want to travel on, usually the following day) and not on the day I want to travel on. The only way to get around this is to select a date I DONT want to travel on and hopefully get the date I want. This seems pretty ridiculous if I have to do this for every connection.I have friends who are currently travelling in Europe using the pass at the moment and are finding the app quite difficult to use because of various errors.Wondering if anyone is encountering these problems. I don’t want to be stuck with more problems when in Europe and if the app is really that poorly designed I’m considering cancelling the pass for a refund and buying individual tickets.thanks Andrew
Black Friday Promotion
I recently purchased my pass a few weeks for the full standard price. However, I now see that there is a Black Friday promotion for 10% as well as "Plus" included. I was wondering if anybody has experienced anything like this & what options I might have? Has anybody been able to ‘price match’ with promotional passes?
Black friday sale - showing 85% refund instead of 100% like advertised
I see Black Friday sale is 100% refundable, but while purchasing it shows 85% refundable. Which is true? Confused with advertisement 🙄and Does this refundable is in same mode of transaction or a Eurail voucher? Does this refundable offer applies until later 11 months?
The app says I used all my journeys. I did but this is my inbound trip?
Hi!I just reserved (80€ altogether) some seat from Stuttgart back to Paris (via Brussels) and Paris to Nantes (where I live) for tomorrow, now that I am trying to add the trips on the app it says you have used all your journeys. I have used all my journeys but this is my inbound trip. I thought any trip that involves a city from the country of residence would make that trip eligible for inbound journey. I very much appreciate your help. The trip is tomorrow and I just paid a hefty amount and I’m in a state of panic
19h rule night pass
Hi! We are travelling from Venice to Budapest tonight (parting on 21h and arriving tomorrow, with a escale) and we wanted to spend only one day with the rule of >19h. However, in the app on eurrail It counts tonight pass as a day-travel and I suppose that tomorrow as Another. Does somebody know how to do It to only count as one day? Thanks a million!
validity of pass
Bonjour, Je viens d’acheter un pass jeune 22 jours que je compte utiliser cet été. Je voulais savoir si les deux voyages inclus dans le pays de residence doivent impérativement être réalisé au début et à la fin du voyage? De plus, je déménage et mon pays de résidence ne sera donc pas le même que celui inscrit sur mon pass, puis-je encore le changer ?Et dernière question, le pass inclut 22 jours de voyage, mais je ne sais pas si j’ai une durée limite pour l’utiliser ? Est-ce que je ne peux voyager que pendant 22 jours à la suite ou est-ce que je peux par exemple l’utiliser sur une durée de 6 mois ? En espérant que vous puissiez m'aider... Orianne
Problem with booking Barcelona-Paris
good afternoon! We are having trouble reserving our seats on the 31/12/2021 09:10 barcelona sants - 15:46 Paris gare dy lyon train (tgv train 9708). The eurail page system gives me an error and restarts the operation. Is it possible to make reservations for our seats with you? We live in Argentina and for this reason it is impossible for us to go through the station at the moment.

Benefits in Germany
Hello all, On this page, it is said that the pass holders can travel by bus to Prague from Munich or Nuremberg (see the screenshot) : https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/trains-europe/trains-country/trains-germany But I can't find more information, it doesn't appear on the page "benefits". And when I plan a "Munich-Prague" trip with the timetable, there is no bus. How can I have more information and book a seat ?And is it only for the Germany pass holders, or also for the global pass holders ? Thank you !
Global Pass 1st class or 2nd class? Advantage for reservations.
Dear Interrailers,we are planning our trip through europe. We want to buy the 3 month global pass but we have to choose between 1st or 2nd class.Beside the mentioned benefits on the homepage I have one question.We want to be flexible and therefore we will choose our train connections only a few days before the train ride. Sometimes there are no seats left in trains. Is it more likely to get a reservation in the first class? Does anybody has experiences with the 1st class and reservations?Thank you for you help. Kind regards
Using the Pass for a Discounted Ticket
I wonder if anyone could inform me how to handle this situation if it arises again. I had my ugliest train experience in Switzerland, on the 18 minute train ride from Lauterbrunnen to Interlaken. This train line is not SBB and so not offer free rides, but does give a 25% discount with the pass. I bought two paper tickets - which would have been about 7 chf each but were discounted to 5 chf or so. So I saved 2 chf using the pass. A conductor questioned me about it - and wanted to see the QR code for the pass. Since the train trip does not even appear in the rail planner, I had no idea how I could generate a ticket. This was further compounded by having no internet access. I am not sure if I could have added it manually or what to do. This conductor was almost yelling at us like she had caught some criminals sneaking on the train, and demanding we go with her to the office at the terminus. This then entailed nearly an hour of my time. At one point I went over to the grocery store acros
