Hi, I want to inform all in this community, that on Monday 28/11/2022 there could be a strike day at the Austrian federal railways ÖBB. The strike has to be confirmed, this can happen Sunday evening.So keep in mind that you can get effect by the strike or, if you can, plan to avoid Austria.
For journeys from 11 December, Dutch and Belgian railways can book the TGVs between Paris and Barcelona again. That includes Interrail/Eurail reservations, which can be booked by phone or at one of their international ticket offices.Deutsche Bahn can no longer book pass reservations for these trains for journeys from from 11 December.I have updated the post about booking these trains. Since last week, Belgian railways can also book reservations for French domestic night trains again. Again, pass reservations can be booked by phone or at one of their international ticket offices.All reservations booked via Dutch or Belgian railways can be sent via email.
I am planning a Eurail trip and will be traveling on my South African passport as I currently reside there. I do however also have a Swiss passport and wondered if the regulations regarding one in-bound & one out-bound trip in Switzerland also apply to me, or whether I would be able to visit multiple destinations in Switzerland as well?

Hello! We ordered paper global passes and there appeared to be a problem with the website in that it wouldn’t let us choose our correct birthday (we had to choose one day off to get it to display correctly). When we got the confirmation both of our birthdays were incorrect by the one day. Our passes haven’t printed yet. Can we get them corrected before printing so we don’t have to wait 2 months to receive them, send them back and order two more?
Hello. My train has been canceled today, December 2, between Barcelona and Paris. I had a link from Paris to Salzburg that I booked with interrail and that I won't be able to board because it's impossible for me to get to Paris. Can you tell me how I recover the amount of my reservation? Thanks.

I currently reside in the USA (Texas), I have a Texas Drivers License but I have a UK passport not a US passport. Looking to travel throughout Europe this holiday season and came across the Eurail Global Pass. Would I be able to use the Eurail Global Pass given that I live in the USA, but have a UK passport?
We will be visiting our daughter who is studying abroad. My husband and I bought global passes and are trying to get from Lisbon to Madrid on December 13. However, I am never able to see any trains scheduled after December 10. Why is that? This is stressing me out, as I like to have my plans in place. Thanks for a response.
Hi all,I’m a German student residing in the UK on a tier 4 student visa. Over Christmas, I want to travel to Germany (and some other countries) using an Interrail Global Pass. When booking the ticket, the form asked for my country of residence. My residence country is the UK, yet, I read in the T&C that I would need to prove my residence at some point. As an EU citizen, I only have digital proof, an e-visa, to prove my residence in the UK. I also have an official document from the German authorities confirming my de-registration from my old residence and indicating my new residence in the UK. However, I don’t have physical proof from the UK authorities of my residence. In related threads, people suggested setting the country of residence to the country of citizenship (in my case Germany) instead. However, I want the one outbound and one inbound journey to apply to my actual country of residence, i.e., the UK.Has anyone dealt with a similar issue and found a solution? Thanks!
Hello, we bought an Interrail ticket plus for our son Joris in July. He was supposed to use it for a language study trip to England. Unfortunately, the interrail accounts on all possible trains were already fully booked, which is why he could not travel by train. We would therefore like to have the ticket refunded. As a precaution, we bought the plus version, but when you log on to their site and try to return the ticket, it always says: You currently have no orders eligible for a refund. How can we return the pass and get the money refunded? Pass number: G7T1JX Sincerely Marcus Bürger
Hellomy husband and I are both over 60 and want to use the trains to travel fromBristol to Kitzbuhel in Austria. We think London to Paris and overnight stay then on to Munich the next day and overnight stay then on to Austria. We will do a similar pattern on return. We ain to travel in about 10 days. Do we need Eurail pass after Brexit. any advice or suggestions will be received. We don’t even know which pass we need. Will we be too late to get train reservations. We fancied an adventure to visit friends instead of putting up with airports. Thank you in advance
Hi everyone, I have been trying for weeks to book tickets from Zermatt to Venice in December and there was at first no train timetable available yet (even though the days surrounding it were available), and now the times are available I cannot reserve seats through the website no matter what time or route I try to enter. Is anyone else experiencing this or can tell me what to do? Thanks!
Final question! I’ve just gone to print my oebb seat reservation tickets, I booked two seat reservations, but oebb is only giving me 1 ticket, and it doesnt even have my name on it - it has my partners. it has two seats on it though, and 2 passholders. im just super stressed i dont have a ticket! is this normal for oebb?
I am trying to book a train from Nice to Florence, but Eurail.com is unable to do so. So I tried to make a reservation on Italyrail.com, but the passholder number does not apply. What should I do? For reference, I have a Eurail pass that can be used for 10 days in 2 months.
hello everyone! I’m Matilde, I’d like to try for the first time the interrail experience during the Winter holidays (from 26th December to 10/12 of January). I’d travel alone to Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and Lyon. The idea is to be in Berlin for new year eve. considering that I’m a 22 year old woman would you recommend it? I have some doubts due to the cold temperatures and the fact that maybe is not the most popular moment for interrail so i Won’t meet anyone? To be honest I don’t know what to expect!
I have a 10 day first class pass, not activated, and have already purchased through SBCB reservations for Eurostar and TGV.I now wish to exchange the pass for one with fewer journeys and even though this is a reduction in value to Interrail I understand that I can do this for a 15 Euro fee. Will my existing reservations (for which I had to generate a pass cover number) be valid with the new pass?Thanks, Scott
