Hi! I’m travelling through the Nordic countries this summer and I have some issus with booking seat reservation for a leg of the trip.I tried to book reservation Narvik - Gallivare for the 15th of August (ideally the 3.10pm train) on interrail and vy but it seems that the trains are fully booked for a few days. I booked the Inlandsbanan from Gallivare on the 16th so I kind of really need to find a way to go there on the 15th…On interrail, the reservation goes through until last minute (‘review your order” page) where it says “Please try to find an alternative connection. The unavailable leg will be removed from your cart.”On vy the train show fully booked.Do you know if there’s another way to get a reservation? Or an alternate route/way to get there? Or should I continue checking the page in hope of someone cancelling their booking?Also, I saw that acprail still sells ticket at this time so I’m a bit confused (not only reservation through).Thank you in advance for your help!
Hello to all,I have problems to book different trains on the interrail website.For example, I'm planning to travel from Berlin to Gdansk on July 31st. When I enter the information on the website, I can't make a reservation. It is marked on all the routes: Prices unavailableNo fares were found for this route. Passholder seats may be sold out. Search for another route or see "More Information" for other booking options. If Pass seats are sold out, you will need to purchase a full-fare ticket for this route.I should point out that I could normally book them as they can be booked two months in advance.What should I do?Thank you for your help.

Hi all,I am thinking of buying the 1st class Interrail ticket for Italy. Does anyone know which class it actually corresponds to in Italian trains? As I can see some Trainlines offer classes like premium, business and executive.Or does the 1st class Interrail ticket make you eligible to book any of those classes and the difference will be evident in the reservation fee?Regards, Maroben
If my research is correct, there used to be connections from Zagreb to Belgrade (and Budapest to Belgrade) not long that ago. Does anybody living in one of those countries have any idea what is going one with those railways? Is it under construction, and if so, is that a matter of months or years? Or are they just closed off never to be used again? Thank you!
Hi all! I’m considering traveling from abroad towards my country of residence. Since I might want to make another trip later that month, can I then still use my Global pass for the outbound journey and then buy a ticket at the border when I come back from that second trip? Thanks a lot in advance! Cheers,Maricke
Budapest - Prague Night train reservation on MAV (Hungarian website) - no interrail discount available
I am trying to make a reservation from Budapest to Prague by the night train. On the Hungarian website MAV, when I added the interrail pass to my train cards, the price for a 2nd class seat reads 58.9EUR, and i believe there is no discount at all (the same price as without the interrail pass): (btw what is this 57.9eur “europa flex cz” thing? there is no way to deselect it.) I tried to book on the CZ website as well, but there is no 2nd class seat option. So how do i correctly reserve a 2nd class seat for the Budapest - Prague night train? Cheers, Terry
Howdy I’m seeking informatin regarding the current strikes in France. On the thalys website I can find information regarding the trains that I’m planning to take tomorrow (very convenient that they strike the day prior) However, regarding my follow-up SNCF trains I can not find any information on their website, or on their app. Please tell me I won’t have to call them again and wait for hours in the waiting line.. thanks
I have booked reservation using Global Interrail passes to take a night train from Nice to Genova. I have been charged 122 euro for first class travel but have been issued second class tickets at 3 euros. There are 7 of us travelling. I had intended to book the first class berths. I am assuming the berths are sold out and have been allocated the seats. Is it straight forward to receive the difference for the incorrect payment?
Hey everybody,since one can only use their global pass to leave and enter their homecountry ONCE, I was wondering if the following scenario is possible: Can I travel from Zürich (Switzerland) to Salzburg (Austria) using trains traversing Germany (my homecountry)?And if that was the case, could I furthermore exit the train in Munich, recording in my Interrail pass like I went to Salzburg all the way. And continue my journey several days after from Salzburg? (I would defininetly not be doing that if it was possible 😉 ) Thank you for your answers and have a great day :)
Hi, i’m planning a trip through multiple countries (Austria, Germany and Italy). When planning out my train schedule in “book reservations” for trains “included” in my pass I’m sometimes met with:1) “You’re ready to board” 2) an extra cost (example: for a night train (nightjet) from Cologne to Vienna) 3) “You're ready to board, You can buy a seat reservation if you like but it's not required.” 4) “+ Additional supplement required, You will need to pay an extra supplement at the station or on board the train.”I’m wondering what these mean exactly.Does “1)” mean i don’t need a reservation or anything else and can just show up and hop on at the station ?If I pay the extra cost for “2)”, I will be sent an electronic ticket. Is that enough in combination with my pass to board the train ?For “3)”, how do I know if a seat reservatiion is necessary (to avoid finding no seat on a full train)? And just to make sure, for “4)”, Am I right for thinking the ticket person will just ask me to pay a
Hi everybody, I was trying to book a 15 days in 2 month ticket for this summer. When I had to enter the start date of my journey, I was only able to pick from the 26th of July or later. Does anybody know why this is and if I can also get my ticket with the start date for the 8th of July?
Hello there! I am currently traveling in the UK with a Eurail Global Pass. I’m noticing that there a number of charges to my debit card under “TFL (Travel for London) Travel Charge.” At first, I thought these might be reservations, but reservations are not required at any of the trains I have taken thus far and the costs vary widely (£6-£30). Why is TFL charging me when I’m using my Eurail Global Pass that shouldn’t charge me? The only thing I can think of is when certain stations will card me in (as not all UK stations are up-to-date on mobile pass technology) that is making it charge me for an “uncompleted journey.”
Hii, I hope I can contact someone via this way. Because my friend and I are experiencing some problems. On July 10th we are going form Ljubljana to Split with a stop in Zagreb. 8:30-21:30. But when we want to book reservations for these trains which is required. It says that there are none available. How can we still book seat reservations? Is there another way? I hope to receive a reaction as soon as possible! Kind regards Nina
Hello! I’m having trouble with adding mobile pass on the railplanner app. I have bought interrail tickets and I have received the confirmation email with my name and passcover number. It starts with an I and 8 digits. When I fill it in it says “your details dont match” It says make sure you have a mobile pass and not a paper pass. I think I have a mobile pass but if I have a paper pass can I still use the app? Or do I have to change the paper pass into a mobile pass?Thank you for the help!
Hello everyone !I purchased an interrail pass for me and one for my brother. Im supposed to have a 10 days one and my brother a 4 days one. I accidently exchanged those and he has the 10 days one. I realized my mistake when I activated them. Is it possible change the names on the passes or to use his pass for the rest of my travels ? Both passes are activated on my phone.Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer me !Alex
Hi, as written in the title, I tried booking Seat Reservations for me and my friends (all Global Pass in paper form). Besides the extremly long loading times on the Interrail.com reservation page, I was most of the time unable to book any trains as all of them were labeled as “Prices temporarily unavailable.” Does this mean these trains are simply fully booked (at least for Interrail travellers) or is this just an extremely annoying bug of the website.

Hi,I would like to travel from Trondheim to Oslo and have to book a seat reservation for this trip. The problem is that I can’t find the self-print option. Does this mean I can’t choose to self print? That would be rather annoying since shipping adds like 9 eur to the total cost.thanks for the help
Hi,As it seem to be almost impossible to reserve seats in France and Spain, either it is not possible, or it is, or its just sent by post, how much time is needed to reserve in person?For example, if I arrive in Perpignan the 15th June, will I most likely? be able to book reservation on a train from Perpignan to Zaragoza the 17th?(SNCF) I mean, that's almost 2 days from I arrive in Perpignan, till I leave. Before Perpignan, I will be in Strasbourg for one night (14th-15th), if I go to the ticket office there (14th), will I be able to book reservations there? now its 3 days before? is it not enough time? who are all these people booking up all reservations, in person! all over Europe? :))) Im traveling with a small dog, so its making me a little bit extra stressed over the situation.
Hi there everyone,I’m pretty new to eurail, as the last time I was in europe was with my parents. I have some problems with my mobile pass and the travelers on my account, as follows:The birthdays on the pass are wrong by one day for both travelers. I’m not sure why this happened, as I know I put in the correct birth dates when buying the pass. The current reservations are not added to a trip. I’d like to add them to a trip, but as far as I can tell the only way to add reservations to a trip is by creating the trip first and then booking the reservations WITHIN the trip.
