Get ready to travel
To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
Im going from strasbourg to Geneva on Wednesday Dec 21st. It says seat reservations are optional and available. Should i make one? Or no? If I don’t make one, what happens? And how will I know which seats on the train are taken and reserved and which one I can sit on? thanks!
Hi all!I am looking to book a night on the Caledonian Sleeper, but I am going to travel with a friend who does not have an interrail pass, he lives in the UK so it’s not a possibility sadly.I asked their customer service what would be the best way to arrange this, and they said I can book a single room supplement just for me, but to tell the train crew before boarding that I have a second person traveling with me. They would then charge us an additional £50.Does anyone have any experience with this? I don’t doubt what their support told me but it feels like a backdoor to save some costs, which I’ll gladly take of course.
Hi all. Please help us to decide which train schedule is better for us as we travel with toddler. We plan to leave Brugge on 11th Nov around 9am. Previously we got suggestions from this community to take IC from Brugge to Kortrijk, Kortrijk to Lille Flandres, then take TGV from Lille Flandres to Paris, as it would be many available seats from Lille Flandres and reservation fees much cheaper But so far we checked the schedule from Rail Planner App or Belgian Train website or SNCB app or DB Navigator app, these app show that we must take Brugge to Bruxelles Midi, then take Thalys from there to Paris. If we edit the options by putting via Kortrijk or via Lille Flandres, these apps keep pointing out that we must go to Bruxelles Midi to go to Paris, resulting 4 to 5 change of train. We prefer max 2 change of train and hope to reach Paris around 1 or 2pm.We are so confused now. Please advise.
I am buying my Eurail Pass and before I do, I would like to ask a question. I want to set a couple of Reservations up now but I am not traveling until the 1st of June. I am getting a Mobile not Paper.Question.... in order to make the reservation do I have to activate my pass... I am not talking about linking (unless "linking" is the same as "reserving")?Any tips or "things to watch out for" when making reservations would also be appreciated!Thank you
Uitreis uit Nederland met Thalys: mag ik de uitreis met mijn Weekend Vrij dekken (heb wel de Thalystoeslag al betaald)
Ik reis op een zondag in november op mijn driemaands global van Amsterdam naar Parijs en moet dan de Thalys nemen. Ik heb de toeslag van € 30,- gekocht en ging er vanuit dat ik het Nederlandse deel van het traject zou kunnen dekken met mijn Weekend Vrij, maar ik begin nu te twijfelen. De inbegrepen outbound heb ik dan al gebruikt (wil ik morgen, 2-9, gaan gebruiken).Gaat dat goed?
Helllppp!! Trying to book tickets in 2nd class between Munich and Rome in July, I get to revising my order and it keeps telling me one of my legs is no longer available. Everthing looks fine but keeps locking me out when its time to pay. I have tried to book varying train times but keeps coming up with same issue. Would very much appprreciate some advice.
The tool is great, however I often end up calling SNCF for a long journey to change my seats! I wonder if it would be possible to bring in a seat selection tool, or perhaps bring in the ability to communicate preferences such as single, aisle, or window, like many European railways have on their client-facing systems. Are there any plans to introduce this in the future?
Hallo allemaal, Aankomende vrijdag wil ik met de trein van Den Bosch naar Berlin hbf reizen. De planner geeft aan dat de prijzen voor de trein tussen Hannover hbf en Berlin hbf niet beschikbaar zijn. Er staat: ‘als er geen zitplaatsen voor Pashouders meer beschikbaar zijn, moet je een apart ticket voor het volle tarief kopen om mee te mogen reizen’. Echter staat daarboven in het groen weergegeven: ‘je bent klaar om in te stappen’.Mijn vraag is of ik alsnog met deze trein mee kan reizen, zonder zitplaatsreservering? Of dat ik een andere trein moet nemen?
I’m trying to book a reservation which it says it’s needed, but it’s also saying that it can’t be booked on their website.How can I get a reservation for a TER train? All I see on the sncf site is a way to “Buy” tickets, but obviously I don’t want to do that.
Hello everyone,We live in Hamburg, Germany. My wife and I bought two 4 days in 1 month global passes and were planning to use it to travel around Hungary. We used it to go to Budapest but had to cut our journey short and come back. So we used up the outbound/inbound (2 days out of 4). We would like to use the remaining 2 days for a Nordic trip.Since the outbound and inbound are used up, can we book a rail ticket from Hamburg to a Danish border town like Padeborg and from Padeborg switch over to our global passes? Because once we are out of Germany which is our country of residence, we can start using the global pass again.So, we get on the Hamburg to Copenhagen direct train, reserve seats all the way from Hamburg to Copenhagen, but we buy rail tickets only from Hamburg to Padeborg. At Hamburg, we show the ticket checker these rail tickets. Can they then question us about why our seats are reserved until Copenhagen? And then at Padeborg, we start a travel day and then select the same tr
Hi, I would like to take this connection up to Warszawa from Sofia. Starting from Sofia for Craiova - Arad (IR 349) there is RQ for seat reservation.On IR page it shows that it’s not available cos only paper option from station is possible. But for this connection I did not found on cfrcalatori.ro option only for seat reservation > they requesting me to pay whole ticket. But I have a ticket with IR pass. On their page there is a lot of seat available - but not via interrail page. The info presented is:“No longer availableThis seat reservation is only available as paper ticket and can't bedelivered to you in time. Try booking in person at the station.” OK, so hopefully when I arrive at the staion it will still be possible to get a place. The next connection shown in IR app is: Arad - Warszawa splitted for 2 connections Arad - Wien > Wien - Warszawa Arad - Wien HbfStarting as train named (NT 346) here starting in RO again I have no other option on the web page (international trains

Hello everyone!We are trying to book a bed reservation on the night train from Karlsruhe HBF to Berlin HBF, dated on the 17th of September (departing at 23:06 and arriving at 7:20). From the Interrail App, I can only book regular seats, while the app itself did show that there were more options (single bed, bed in a dormitory, etc...). In the reservation section, all these options disappear. How can I book a bed reservation if the system doesn’t show them?Thank you for your help
Hello! I will be traveling to England and Paris over this upcoming May. My question is, when I buy a Eurail Pass, 4 days within 1 month pass for example, am I able to use that pass in England and France (including using the high-speed train from London to Paris)? Plan is to fly into London, take a train to York from London, go from York to Paris (connecting through London), and then Paris to Nice.
Good afternoon, I am hoping to book an Interrail trip next year, and wanted to clarify a few things. My rough itinerary is as follows: Day 1: York-London St Pancras London St Pancras-Vienna (depart early morning from London, arrive late evening Vienna)Days 2 and 3 spend in Vienna, depart late evening Day 3 (catch the sleeper train to Berlin)Day 4 and 5: BerlinDay 6: Berlin-London St Pancras-York I first of all wanted to enquire to the type of pass I might need, as although I will be travelling for 6 days total, I will not actually be on board trains for all of those days?I will also be on board a sleeper train for one of those days, will this mean using two days of travel, or just the one day from when I board the train?Does the Interrail pass cover journeys within my host country (ie York to London), or will I have to purchase a return journey for this in conjunction with my Interrail pass? And if the Interrail pass does cover host country use, will I only need to use a single day fo
