Bonjour, J’aurai quelques questions pour un futur voyage J’ai reçu le pass interrail qui permet d’aller en Allemagne pendant 7 jours consécutifs. Souhaitant partir de Grenoble, on me propose des trajets passant par la Suisse, et qui ne sont pas disponibles avec le pass (logique, mais je voudrai juste vérifier que c’est bien normal) Je décide donc de passer par Paris, mais pour y aller dans des délais raisonnables, je dois prendre un TGV, ce qui suppose des frais de réservation de 12€. Ces frais de réservation sont-ils obligatoires ? J’ai entendu à la radio qu’aller en gare permettait de ne pas avoir à payer ces frais. Ensuite, puis-je prendre tous mes billets dans la même gare (pour aller et retour) ? Mais aussi prendre les billets dans une gare française pour les trajets internes en Allemagne ?Comment ça se passe pour faire les réservations finales ? Sur interrail, dans reservation des places assises, j’ajoute au panier et je valide? Mais ça ne semble pas fonctionner pour les trajet
I reserved 4 seats for my family later this month traveling from Birmingham to Liverpool. I realize now that I didn’t have to pay, but Eurail directed me to reserve the seats through acprail.com. Since I reserved the seats, I need to change my departing station from BHX to Birmingham New Street. I can’t find any way to do so and any inquiries have to be emailed in. Does anyone know of how I can change it online?
Hi all!Just a quick question, has anyone else noticed it’s not possible to reserve a seat on the Oslo-Bergen train? I tried reserving one on almost every day in August and September on the interrail website but I get a “ Prices unavailable” error on all the trains.But when I check the vy.no website there’s still plenty of seats available. Is calling the only option here? I prefer anything else because of the international calling charges.Thanks for any answers to this!!
I‘ve made a mistake!I‘m going to travel with my son (10). We have got. the 7-days-global-pass.I wanted to start the journey yesterday, but he became ill. Stomach! 🙈So I deactivated the first trip, I thougt so: I just deactivated MY pass, I forgot to deactivate the trip on my son‘s pass. So for him the first travel day (1/7), the one out of the country, is already used.How can I change that? Can somebody from the staff change it for me? Because my son obviosly HASN‘T TRAVELLED YET! I saw it by chance, filling in the new trip, because the child finally feels well again and I want to start travelling in three hours…I will get in trouble on the train! Don‘t I?Thanks a lot.
Where can I buy this supplement fee? I have global pass, and travelling with nightjet from munich to Venice. I have booked a couchette, but have not seen anywhere I need to pay anything above that. But now heard people being charged on the train. Travelled 2 years ago munich-bologna and wasn't charged anything else but the sleeper wagon. Regards Karina
hi, we booked from geneva to milan on trentitalia. after purchasing the tickets, it said we have to print them at self service kiosks from ITALY ONLY? but if we are leaving from geneva, we cannot do this? is it possible to just use the email with the PNR code to board the train in geneva? if we truly have to print from italy, we will need to cancel
Hi all!Does anyone have any experience with making a connection between SJ Nord trains? I read you need a minimum of 60 minutes(!) before they guarantee any alternative methods if you miss a connection because of delays. Is it too risky to have an 11 minute connection with their trains?Here’s the journey I have in mind:
Hi everyone. Here’s my situation:I have an Interrail Global Pass with 15 days in 2 months When I will do my inbound journey back home, I might not have used all the days included in the pass Let’s say I have used 12 days and then I do inbound journey (it counts as 1 day?) so I have used 13 days. My question is: do I still have the right to use the 2 remaining days? Of course I can’t repeat an outbound journey, but I can pay a full ticket for the outbound and once I’m out of my country, can I use Interrail Pass normally until using all the available days?Thanks in advance for any help you can provide 🤗
Morning! I read about the DB and the train union’s negotiations breaking down last week (22nd/23rd June) and there now being a ballot to strike.If it goes ahead I believe the strike would happen over the summer. Does anyone have experience with how long the timings of these things take. ie it’s been said that it takes around 4-5 weeks to get the result of the vote and then from there, if they do vote to strike, how much notice do they usually give before they go on strike? We’re be travelling through/in Germany on 24th July, 28th July and 1st August.OBB night jet Brussels to Vienna 24th JulyVienna to Diessen 28th JulyDiessen to Dijon 1st Aug Thanks in advance for any insight.
This is my first time traveling internationally. When I first started using the eurail app I used trains that didn’t require reserving seats so I didn’t realize that I had to book seats separately from the app. My issue now is that I’ve just been told that I do have to reserve a seat. I’m trying to travel from Paris to Barcelona on June 30 and I can’t find any available trains. Does anyone have any advice on how I could find tickets to get there or any alternative routes? I’m traveling with a friend so I would need two tickets.Any advice would be really appreciated!Thank you
Hi everyone,I’m planning to travel from Istanbul to Sofia this summer by the Sofia-Istanbul Express overnight train. The train should be departing from Istanbul Halkali station at 8pm on the 29th of August and arrive at Sofia at 9.37 am the next day. However, when I try adding this trip to the rail planner app, I can only find a train with a connection in Plovdiv (in Bulgaria) between 5.41am and 6.35am on the 30th of August. Therefore I should have to use two travel days to make this trip. I’ve read on the seat61 website that this train is supposed to be direct between the two cities and therefore only cost a travel day. Has anyone done this trip recently and know how I can manage to book it on the rail planner app?Thanks in advance, Arthur
Hi allI have an interrail global pass and a couchette reservation for the Intercity Notte from Milano Centrale to Bari for this coming Saturday. The plan is to come from Switzerland during the day and then catch the night train in the evening in Milan.Now I am thinking to go even a bit further to Piacenza using day trains, have dinner with a friend there and then catch the night train from there (Piacenza is its first stop after Milano). Do you think this is possible? Or will my reservation expire if I’m not on the train in Milan?Does anyone have any experience here?Many thanks in advance for your help!Kind regardsSebastian
From my previous research, IC201 doesn’t require reservations for eurail users However, my eurail app now says reservation is needed. I want to cut the cost of reserving through eurail, and directly do it with the train company. I saw on another community post that this can be done through db or obb website. However, both says reservations not available. Any other way for me to make a reservation?
I bought a mobile pass and but entered the wrong validity period. Unfortunately, the validity period has now started but I am not going to be able to use any travel days from this. Is there any way I can still change this (the dates should fall a month later)? Or possibly refund (I did not buy Plus)?
Hi guys!I’m trying to make a reservation for a train ticket from Raciborz (17:14, 08.07.2023) to Prague Hlavni Nadravi (21:45, 08.07.2023). The Interrail website tells me that no reservation is required, but I can make one if I want a place, and the Rail Planner app tells me that a seat reservation is required.Which one is true? How can I make a reservation? There’s no button anywhere to do it.Thanks a lot for your help from advance!Jakub
Hello there! Im going interrailing for the first time this summer and was curious how the interrailpass works with the public transit in foreign countries. I’ve heard from some people that it works as a pass for public transport such as intercity busses and short train rides while from others ive heard the opposite. I wanted to ask you guys to see what actually is allowed and what isn’t. Thank you all for the help!
I bought a 10 day in 2 months global pass through renfe with the 50% discount the currently offer to spanish citizens and residents. However, I am in the Netherlands, so the pass had to be received by my parents and sent through post to my residence here. The Spanish postal service however has once again shown its wonderful ability and lost the envelope. I have reservations to travel on Monday, but I won’t have my physical pass. I have pictures, and I have my ID. I also have the reservations tickets. Can I still travel with these things? Is there a way I can cancel the physical pass and use the app since it is an emergency? Is there a way to get a new global pass in such a short amount of time?Thank you!
Hi,I’ve bought seat reservations by using interrail’s seat reservation tool for a trip between Venice and Vienna. The information on interrail’s website says that the supplement will be included in the seat reservation, and that “supplement included” will be printed on the ticket. However, this is not the case on my tickets as “supplement included” is not printed anywhere. Do I need to buy the additional supplement separately or is it included in the ticket despite “supplement included” not being printed on it?
Bonjour,Je souhaite partir en Allemagne le 24 juillet avec une amie. Nous disposons toutes les 2 d’un pass pour partir dans le cadre de l’offre aux jeunes par le gouvernement français et allemand (Interrail France Germany Pass). Nous souhaitons partir le 24 juillet depuis Rouen vers Duessendorf pour un premier arrêt lors de notre voyage. Or, tous les trains que nous pouvons prendre pour y aller sont incompatibles avec le pass, et il en est de même pour les trains à l’intérieur de l’Allemagne mais aussi si nous modifions les dates du voyage. Pourtant, les trains choisis sont bien des trains qui fonctionnent avec le pass (THALYS en l’occurrence pour le 1er train pour ce premier exemple). Je ne comprends donc pas l’intérêt de ce pass puisqu’il est sensé inclure 95% des trains, or il est impossible d’organiser un voyage car aucune réservation n’est possible, comment cela se fait ?Merci et bonne journée
