Struggle: activate pass before having mandatory reservation
Hey, i am starting my first interrail soon and have a question bc Im afraid to do something wrong and having problems since i travel alone. I need to activate my Pass before 10th of April, so before I forget i really wanna Do it now..but:My first travel date is 18th of April.I will fly to spain on 13th, stay in one city for some days, and start my travel with train then on 18th. Since i read that I can only book Reservation IN spain and Reservation is mandatory: What if I connect a train now (i need to add a train i will take right?) and when Im in spain the seats are not available anymore for this train? I would rather activate my pass right before my travel as adviced but since my travel date is after the day where I need to activate its not possible. Also second question, what if for any reason I can not take the train on 18th I have chosen? Is it true I then can not use my whole pass anymore? So is this first train fixed?? Thank you so much for your helpJohanna

Eurostar Seat Reservation upgrade
Hello! I have a Eurail second class global pass. I originally got a standard class seat reservation from Paris to London in April, but we had to change the date we will be leaving Paris. I went onto the Eurostar app and was able to change the date but since there was no more standard class tickets for the time I wanted, I was able to upgrade my seat to standard premier. My question is, will that be okay since I have a second class Eurail pass? I was able to successfully select the seat and I have the Euro star tickets but I want to make sure everything will be okay. Thank you!
Bookings and Reservations - not sure if I understand or have lost the plot
Hi AllOk, I *think* I might be starting to understand how this works.I have a 7 day pass.I go and search for the trip on Rail Planner in the Planning section.Add the trip to My Trip, which adds it to a travel day.Then if it says “a seat reservation is required” for part of the trip, I go to wherever the country rail is and book a seat reservation (in this case LNER).But I don’t need a ticket for the rest of the interconnecting trains if they dont need a reservation because it’s covered under the Eurail day of travel and the train companies don’t think you need to book a specific ticket?Is that right? & how do we continue 1st class on the other legs of the journey if we don't have a seat reservation please?
Holding two different passes at once?
Hello. In the fall i purchased the month pass which needs to be unlocked as of May 1st, and i plan on using starting on April 27th. I will be doing more travelling prior to this and realized that I would like to purchase the 7 day one month pass because at that point I would not like to unlock my month pass yet. Is it possible to hold two passes at once?

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?
Reservation needed for Bratislava to Vienna?
We would like to do a day trip from Vienna to Bratislava with my first class interrail pass. I can see that no reservation is needed from Vienna to Bratislava. Is it also the case that we do not need a reservation to go from Bratislava to Vienna? This is probably a silly question but I’d like to be sure.

Interrail global pass validity on Snälltåget and Öresundståg
Hi,Still struggling with train connections from Stockholm towards Copenhagen, this has turned out to be the hardest section to plan. We have seat reservations for the 8.24 Snälltåget 3941 from Stockholm to Malmö on June 17th and plan to continue from Malmö to Copenhagen on the 15.33 Öresundståg 1093. Just want to make sure that our Interrail global passes will be valid on both these trains? The SJ couldn't answer my question although we booked the seat reservation from them.
Do I need to buy interconnecting tickets?
Hi! I have bought my Eurail Pass, added my Bologna to Riomaggiore trip, and paid for the one fast train service from Bologna to Florence. What I’m confused about is there are 3 other trains: Florence to Pisa, Pisa to La Spezia, and La Spezia to Riomaggiore. These three trains don’t need seat reservations. Do I need to buy tickets for these trains or does my pass QR work for them? I can see them all listed under the pass ticket but I didn’t want to run into any issues on board.
Problem with reservation from Pescara to Milano
Hello,I am taking the train tomorrow from Pescara to Germany and I still need to reserve a seat from Pescara to Milano or from Pescara to Bologna (the latter would be the second option as reservations from Bologna to Milano are bookable). I tried it over the page of interrail and on the one of the italian train company but it is not possibe to select the reservation and it says I should try another website, I do not know which one though. The directions on the interrail page are not helpful at all regarding this … Can someone please help me? I would be really thankful <3Sophie

Florence to Venice. Does the train take you to the island or the mainland?
How does the train get from Florence to Venice? Does it take you to the island or the mainland. I’m booking a hostel on the island and don’t want to arrive and find myself on the main land. Similarly does the train leave from the island as well?
