Interrail pass fees
Is the extra £19 ‘free cancellation’ when booking an interrail pass necessary? If I didn’t get this could I still use the ticket within 11months of buying it or is that only possible when paying the extra fee. If I OPT for the paper ticket instead does the extra £10 cover a refund (if needed)?
When to activate Pass?
I have purchased a Eurail Global Senior pass. It is good for 4 trips in one month. I have plans for 2 routes at this point:4/29/2022 - Frankfurt to Basel5/9/2022 - Amsterdam to Paris (reservations needed)Should I activate before I get to Frankfurt? Can I make the reservation for second trip before activation?Thanks Pam
Are you guaranteed a seat on trains that dont require seat reservations?
Hello,Going from Berlin to Amsterdam in June. A reservation is recommended, but not required. Is it a good idea to book a seat? If we do not reserve a seat, will we still be able to find a seat once we board the train? That is, does a ticket guarantee a seat, or do they sell more tickets than there are seats available?Thank you!
Where to book our seat reservations?
hiya! me and a friend just bought an interrail pass that we are planning to use throughout July... I'm very confused : we've started planning trains as we know July will be extremely busy, but a. cannot find where to book our seat reservations / how we say that we are taking a specific train, and b. a lot of trains that I found looking at the UK Trainline website arent available on the Interrail journey planner? (I've checked if interrail covers the specific train lines we were looking at and they do) - what do i do?
I had to set a date on which I wanted to start the trip. Is this date fixed or can it still be changed?
I want to do my first interrail trip with a global pass this summer. As there ist the 10% sale right now, I wanted to buy the '10 days in 2 months' ticket today. But at one point of filling in my data I had to set a date on which I wanted to start the trip. Is this date fixed or can it still be changed?Bc if the tickets aren't on sale, they can be used flexibly within 11 months.I couldn't find any information on this topic, so I did not buy the ticket yet.hope somebody can help :)

Interrail vs buying tickets separate
Hey guys, this year I want to travel through Portugal and Spain. I noticed it would be much cheaper to buy every ticket directly at the railway operations (260€ vs. 100€) 1. Do the train tickets always cost the same in Portugal/Spain in view of the time of purchase and the season?2. When are the tickets available for September? At the moment you can only buy tickets for February. 3. Why should I buy an interrail ticket instead of buying the train tickets separately? Thank you in advance. Regards, Carlos

Hi, I am considering buying a global pass 4-days to fulfill my travels. My residencial address is in Berlin.Berlin - Eastern France (day1) Eastern France - Paris region (day2) Paris region - Lyon region (day3) Lyon region - Berlin (day4)Nonetheless the way I understand the terms and conditions of this pass, I mainly can use the pass only in Germany, with the exception of two travels: one out and one back to the country of residence.“Der Interrail Global-Pass berechtigt dich zum Reisen in deinem Wohnsitzland. Du kannst eine Fahrt aus dem Land und eine Fahrt in das Land nutzen. Diese Fahrten können jeweils zu einem beliebigen Zeitpunkt deiner Reise stattfinden”Is this correct? Thanks for giving me some help!Vee

Edit trip in Railplanner app
I have a question about the Electronic Global Pass. I travelled last month with my global pass.In the Railplanner App you can enter a trip for the pass. The trip will be on the ticket. The ticket inspector will scan the barcode on your ticket and will check if the train you are on has been added to your ticket. Now i have te following situation. I made a trip from Munster (Germany) via Munich to Innsbruck (Austria). I had it in one trip.The problem was with the train from Munster to Munich which ends (because of a delay) in Stuttgart (next stops where cancelled). In Stuttgart i had to take another train. The problem is i couldn’t change the trip (only delete it). And i also couldn’t add another trip from Stuttgart to Munich to my Pass. I don’t know the error but i think it was something like an overlapping trip can not be added.I know deleted de complete trip and added new trips (the previous trains en the new trains).Did i something wrong ? I think it must be possible to change a
