Hello,I purchased a Eurail pass for travel the end of September. We are flying into London Heathrow arriving on September 29 around 12:30pm. We want to travel from London to Paris the same day. I noticed that checking the train schedule it says seat reservation required. What train do we take from Heathrow to Paris city center and how do we reserve seats?
Hi there, hoping someone can help me! I’m going to be 27 for majority of my trip, 2 weeks around (Rome - Milan - Venice - Budapest - Prague) but then turning 28 for the last part of my trip (Paris - Amsterdam - London). I have bought a youth ticket, will I be able to use this for the last part of my trip?
Hi Community. I am travelling across Europe with my wife and 3 kids this summer and we are still trying to full understand the reservation and booking challenges. Thank you all so far for all the information been made available. I have however come up against a problem. We have been trying to book the reservation for travel from Copenhagen to Osnabrück to the 9th of July. When I tried with 5 though OBB is didn’t work but for whatever reason it worked with 4+1 through separate bookings. However when I look at the ticket it only shows reservations for the Hamburg to Osnabrück part of the journey. Is there anyway to confirm if we actually have a booking for the 1st leg? Any ideas?Thanks in advance for any advice.Regards,David
Hi, when making seat reservations are they only needed between the stations listed or for the whole journey. For example, I want to travel from Paris to Milan. The booking indicates seat reservations are required. I cannot book a seat all the way through from Paris to Milan. Do I need to book only from Paris to Macon - ie between the 2 stations listed; or do 1 seat reservation for the French section and another for the Italian?When trying to book seats with Italian Rail, they are not accepting my Pass Code for the booking. Just keeps rejecting the entry. Thanks in advanceDebbie
Hi, eight of us have 1st class global pass for 5 days in a month. I couldn’t find train from Paris to Zermatt for 30 May 2023 12pm so I reserved Paris Lyon to Mulhouse. Now how do I get from Mulhouse to Zermatt? When it says “no reservation required” do I still need to buy a ticket to board the next train or just board with the eurail mobile pass? I have children with me, will we be separated if I don’t reserve seats? Appreciate the help. Tq.
"Your Pass isn't valid on this date" message received when trying to book SNCF reservation for this Thursday
Hi. I have a 4 day in a month pass activated this morning but bought via “My Interrail” rather than the eurail site (there was a cash back offer before Christmas). I’m trying to book a Strasbourg to Paris ticket for Thursday via the only website that I can do it on I think, correct me if I’m wrong, this being www.interrail.eu. However it returns the message, “Your Pass isn't valid on this date” when searching. I’ve deleted old passes on the site and the only one pass in the “My Trips & Travellers” section is the one activated today. Any thoughts please?
Hello to all travellers, experienced or otherwise. I have 2 questions for you.The first question is this:I have an Interrail Global Complimentary Pass Adult, valid for 1 month continuous on my mobile phone.I have activated my outbound journey London-Paris Nord for travel on Eurostar on 4th April 2023, and I have paid for and printed out a seat reservation.Because of the warnings that Eurostar seats for Interrail travellers are limited and therefore should be reserved as far in advance as possible I took the precaution of activating an inbound journey Brussels-London-Newcastle for 2nd May 2023, and I have paid for and printed out a seat reservation for that too.However, when I go to My Pass and click on Show Ticket only the outbound journey London-Paris Nord is showing under the QR code, and I am puzzled as to why the inbound journey details are not there. Should I be worried? Have I made a mistake somewhere?My second question is related to my first, and it is this:My outbound and inbou
HiI'm planning a trip to Spain and Portugal next week. I tried to make the reservation for a train Montpellier (France) - Madrid (Spain) with the company Renfe but I saw that it's not possible on the interrail website and that I should go to a train station. And that's what I did. But there, they explained me that I can't book that train from France, since It's a spanish company and that I can only do it in a spanish train station. But how am I suppose to book the train in a spanish station if it's leaving from France ? Can anyone explain me how I should proceed ? Is it possible to make this reservation ?Thank you very much
The RailPlanner app (v 30.7.0 on Android) shows contradictory information about seat reserverations in InterCity (IC) trains in France:when searching they are shown as requiring seat reseverations and https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/reservations/reservations-france says InterCity trains require seat reservertions and on the train itself it is written that reservations are mandatory But:there were apparently passengers in the IC without any reservation the RailPlanner app shows reservations as optional for ICs in the country information screen (The ¹ there just says “Reservations are mandatory for trains in Normandy.”, which does not apply.) The connection is the IC 4659 from Toulouse to Narbonne.
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
Hello friends,I have a few questions. First I want to know whether this seven days in one month flexi pass represents the month by consecutive 30days from any starting date or this one month represent Jan, Feb. and so on, if anyone starts his journey on 29th September the will it last on 28th October or 30th September? I have bought one such pass and haven’t activated yet but have booked some paid reservations. I will activate it before our journey. will it be okay? Does one travel day mean 00:01 am to 11:59 pm on the same day? what’s the process of activation and how will it work? other than eurail is anything extra covered in eurail mobile pass?
Ich möchte nächstes Jahr ggf.mit dem Interrail(Global)Ticket nach Istanbul. Soweit ich weiß liegt diese Stadt auf 2 Kontinenten(Europa &Asien).Daher die Frage,wo da die Grenze ist,oder ob Istanbul trotzdem komplett bereist werden kann.Vielen Dank bereits vorab, Klaus
I leave at the weekend and feel a little nervous about using my pass. I have a paper pass, travelling into Italy. Can I confirm, if the train doesn’t need a reservation, I simply write the journey on my paper planner and board the train? I sit anywhere that doesn’t have a reservation ticket on the seat? Is this correct? Also, do I need to validate my ticket? It has the start date on it and is a 22 day pass.
Bought my first ever Interrail Pass (Global Pass) today. First trip will be The Hague to Labenne in France. The planner gives a trip with a 5 minute connection time on Rotterdam Centraal (stoptrein to Thalys). So isn't it better to take an earlier train from The Hague to Rotterdam? And can I use that earlier train as an outbound trip?
Hi :)I’m trying to make a seat reservations for a journey in italy on oebb.at but it says ticket not available… The journey is IC1517 Bologna Centrale to Firenze Campo di Marte, 16:41 on 30/07. The interrail reservation bookings seems able to be able to book it, and trenitalia shows availability, but öbb, čd, and db all can’t book it… I could just accept the €2 fee :(Thank you!Ru
I am currently doing interrail with the mobile pass.While I am happy with the functionalities of the app, it has given me multiple stressfull moments:app not letting me enter a journey manually, and hence I could not generate a QR code. I am touch with support to get myself refunded the ticket that I had to buy instead. All journeys disappeared, only to re-appear after 10 seconds or so. Those 10 seconds are a very long time with the ticket inspector standing next you, in a far away country with no common language. Did anyone else experience this? Or this one: Instead of saying 'Show ticket' in the yellow bar, it says 'add a journey': . It is totally unclear why the app would say so at this location. Restarting (takes multiple minutes) did not solve it, but later on that same day, it is back to normal. I will consider doing the paper pass next time to avoid these issues. It really took the fun of it all away.
Hello, At the end of december I want to travel from Roma Termini to Palermo. Leaving the 27th from Roma at 23:00 (11pm). At the Italiarail website it's possible to by a couchette ticket but without Interrailpass. The Interrail website doesn't show this train. How can I buy a ticket using Interrail? Do I need to wait untill the Interrailwebsite show this train (with tjhe risk the couchettes are sold out) or can I buy the ticket for full price and get a refund later via Interrail?Best Regards,Jan
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
