Strikes in France. My options?
HiI wonder if anyone can help me? I shall wake up in Montpellier this Saturday and will take a local train to Nimes and then I have reservations for the train to Paris at 1214hrs so I can get my Eurostar reservation back to London leaving Paris at 1713hrs. The problem is that SNCF has emailed to say that they have cancelled the train from Nimes. Does anyone know what I can do so I get back to London on Saturday please?
why do i need a seatreservation
I'm travelling from London Euston next Wednesday on the 19.46 to Liverpool Lime Street. If I go straight to Liverpool I need a € 6 seat reservation. The journey takes 2h 21m. If I take the same train from Euston without a reservation I have to change at Crewe to wait for the next EXP train that gets to LLS at 23.17, a total of 3h 31m! If I bought a normal second class ticket with a senior rail card the seat reservation is free, or not necessary. But I've already got a Senior Interrail global pass, so why the cost? Just because it's quicker, even though I'm using the same train an hour later. Or shall I just risk it and pretend I caught the earlier train from London and waited at Crewe for this one... Any suggestions 🤔
Outbound journey via Newhaven (Port) from London to Paris
Because I have left it too late – I leave on 3rd April – I cannot make a reservation on Eurostar to go to Paris. After doing my research, I have decided that my best route is to go from Victoria to Newhaven via Brighton, and then get the ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe. From Dieppe I can then get the train to Paris. You would think this was a very simple matter to use this as my outward journey from my home country – but you would be wrong! I have spent literally the whole day on the interrail app, looking at endless related topics, FAQs, and various community websites trying to sort it out, with no success at all.I have tried entering ‘Newhaven’, ‘Dieppe’, and ‘Paris’ as my destination, and all I am getting back is that I am being routed in a circle back round to London to take the Eurostar, which I cannot do because I cannot make a reservation! (Quite apart from the fact that the journey from London back to London takes 8 hours!!) And/or I am being told that this is not a valid route f
Lyon to Barcelona day after Christmas
I am trying to make my train reservations from Lyon Part Dieu to Barcelona Sants for 26.12. Journey begins at 11:06am. This is a 2 part journey. It does not look like I can no longer reserve seats for part 1. When I booked part 2 my transaction goes through but then I receive an email from Eurail stating something went wrong with the reservation. It is extremely frustrating! We are on a pretty tight travel schedule. My biggest concern is getting the ticket from Nimes to Barcelona Sants on the 13:18 train. I should have more options from Lyon to Nimes (regional train.) Can anyone advise?
How to book at train from Edinburgh to Gloucester on 24th September for 6 people with family and friends pass?
I can’t seem to get my hands on tickets for Edinburgh to Gloucester on the 24th of September. Trainline.com haven’t yet released tickets (is this normal for just over a month out).

Best Pass to Buy for Paris/Switzerland/Rome
Good day! I am torn between purchasing between the Eurail and Swiss Pass. Our itinerary is as follows for end of May 2023: Day 1-2 - ParisDay 3 - Train from Paris to InterlakenDay 4 - Interlaken (possibly do a boat tour in Lake Brienz)Day 5 - Train from Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen to Lucerne (We have plans to go paragliding this specific morning, so have to go to Stechelberg station for this from Interlaken and then go to Lucerne after. I know there is a cable car ride involved from Stechelberg to Murren which is the take off site.)Day 6 - Lucerne (We were looking into doing a Mt Pilatus trip)Day 7 - Train from Lucerne to Geneva (Possibly looking at doing a stop in Gruyeres)Day 8 - Train from Geneva to RomeDay 9-11 - Rome I was hoping I could do a combo of Eurail and Swiss Pass (3 days each), but the smallest Eurail package seems to be for 4 days. Thank you in advance, Regards,Pat
1st class vs 2nd class pass to be able to book single sleepers?
Hi, I am planning on doing a 3-month interrail trip in September and I’m taking a few night trains. However, i only want to book single sleepers, I don’t want to share. Is it necessary to buy a 1st class interrail pass? or will the 2nd class suffice? Thanks!
Youth Pass - What is meant by "Start of the trip"?
Hey there, I would like to take Eurail Italy 3 days within 1 month 1st Class passes for me and my wife. My wife's birthday is on April 29th and she will turn 28 on 29 April, 2023.If I buy a pass starting from 26 April, 2023 will she be eligible for the Youth discount?I am planning to use the pass for travel in Italy on 5, 6 and 15 May, 2023. The website says “If you're 27 or younger on the date you choose to start your trip, you can buy our discounted Youth Pass.”.

Comments on itinerary and connections needed please
Hi all,Planning a trip from Finland to Italy and back next summer as a family of two adults and two teenagers with 7 days in a month Interrail global passes (mobile) and having trouble with a couple of things. All comments, suggestions and help would be very appreciated.1) Getting from Stockholm to Hamburg on June 17th. We should arrive at Stockholm Viking Line terminal at 6.30 am and need to get to Hamburg for the next night. SJ is apparently having trouble getting the timetables confirmed because of track works so we don't know if we can assume the trains will be running or not?2) Getting from Zurich to Como on June 19th. We should arrive at Zurich at 10.05 am with Obb nightjet from Hamburg (we have sleepers booked already). What would be the options to get to Como? 3) Getting from Como to Innsbruck on June 26th, best connections and/or the most scenic routes? 4) We have a couchette booked for the Obb nightjet from Innsbruck to Hamburg on June 27h at 20.12 pm, but we were informed th

Is train travel in Spain possible without seat reservations?
I read on interrail.eu, ‘More often than not, you need to make advance reservations for trains in Spain’. Is this true? Is it usually not possible to travel in Spain without seat reservations? Is the Interrail app information reliable where this is concerned? How can I find Spanish trains where it is not necessary to have a seat reservation?
Outbound connecting journey cancelled due to rail strike
I am due to travel outbound from UK to Brussels via Eurostar on 13 August, and have heard the train to London will not be running due to strikes. I believe I can only use my interrail pass for connecting journeys in my home country on the day that I catch the Eurostar. The cheapest we can travel to London the night before will cost us (family of 5) £253 plus accommodation. Is there any way to cover this, through interrail, the striking rail company or travel insurance? We don’t have reservations for the connecting journey as they are not required.
Inbound/outbound day travels
Good day, I am facing an issue at the moment with my interrail pass. I want to schedule my journey back to my home country -which is Belgium- and the app tells me that I wasted both outbound and inbound day travels. When I checked closer, I discovered that the app put me an In/outbound day journey on a Berlin-Prague travel. It has no sense. Furthermore it took me one hour for getting out from Belgium. How can I lose both In/out travel back on on one hour travel. It seems that the app is having some troubles and I am sure that I would have less issues with the paper pass as I used when I was younger. Please enlighten me on this case. Thanks in advance.

Hello!Can anyone help me to find out if this train is still running or not:Train from Kraljevo to Kosovska Mitrovica Sever (06:50 - 10:22 and 14:50 - 18:22).

Credit Card Error
I’ve finally made my itinerary and ready to book and start travel on Tuesday but well several things:The colors are hard to see on iPhone Chat program (on iPhone) hides the “X” to close it out because it covers almost the entire screen and you just can’t log out Some links do not work like I mentioned here: And lastly, the form to purchase has issues as I am not able to buy a pass.What gives people?Here is the error I get when I try to purchase a pass: can you imagine what other heads I may encounter while I travel gosh kind of scary and getting high Anxiety over all, gosh oh and did I mentioned that I just finished planning my itinerary? oh and I went to Frankfurt main train station and the DB office (service center) offer “zero” “0” support for eurail.com. Even though the links (https://www.bahn.com/en/offers/passes/eurail-pass) from DB itself sends you to eurail.com (funny right)?
I'm taking a night train home. How to avoid the app is selecting not only inbound but also the outbound journey?
Hi everyone,I’m planning my first trip with an Interrail Global Ticket and I need some advice.My country of residence is Germany. I’d like to travel back with an over night train from Rome, which ends in Munich, but I have to switch trains then to get back home.I thought I can just use 2 travel days for this on my pass, but the app doesn’t allow me to select the the journeys because I “already used my outbound travel”. I have enough travel days left, but unfortunately I have to switch trains after midnight. Do I have to purchase another ticket to get home?Thanks for your help.
Booking seat reservations
Hello!!I have bought an Interrail Pass and now I’m checking which of the trains require seat reservations.For many of them, I cannot purchase this via the eurail website. In this case, do I have to purchase the individual train tickets (on different websites) as if I don’t have an Interrail pass?What if I wait to buy my seat on the day right before departure? Thank you
