How to pay seat reservations on Eurail App?
Hi All, I am travelling in Italy at the end of this month. I am currently planning my journey on the Eurail app. I have a mobile pass.I have saved a journey to My Trip with a 10 Eur Seat Reservation charge.How is this charge paid?There is no option on the App to pay.Under “More’ you can select ‘Seat Reservations’ then select ‘Italy’ and it says ‘Book at major train stations – At a ticket office or self-service machine’Does this mean the reservation fee is paid at the station on the day? thanks,
Taking a bicycle on an Interrail trip
Hey guys, I have once travelled with interrail and had great experiences. This summer, me and my brother want to bikepack through Italy. For this purpose, we will travel from Cologne to Genova by train and homewards from Naples to Cologne by train. We were planning to buy interrail tickets to cover the train rides and are aware that we will need to make some reservations for trains. My question is: do you know if it is possible to carry a bicycle when using an interrail pass? (of course under the assumption that you can carry a bike on the train in it’s regular scheme) Hope to receive an answer soon, thanks! Tjeu and Bear
Thalys REFUSED my seat reservation TODAY
Hi all, Today I was travelling with my Interrail Global Pass 1st class from Dusseldorf, Germany with Thalys to Paris. My plan was to take the connection to Marseille where I had booked a hotel. When the train manager was checking my ticket, he stucked at my reservation which I did for 1st class Premium via B-Europe. He advised that my reservation is only valid with special abonnement cards which you can buy in France but is NOT valid with Interrail. My reservation shows “Pass Premium” and that’s not valid.That’s the reason he has the right to refuse my ticket and let me pay for a complete new ticket. After talking to his co-worker it would be okay if I take a seat in 2nd class instead.I told him that I never had problems with any reservations in TGV, Eurostar and ICE. But anyway, I felt like I was travelling illegal and the staff was extremely unfriendly. All people were looking at me as I would travel illegally for real - very embarassing and shameful to be honest. I never travelled w
Global Pass valid for public transport within the cities?
Hi all!I am planning my first ever interrail adventure and i’m torn between the 7days within 1 month or 22days pass. I will be travelling for 3 weeks and am planning to stop in around 6 cities (Lyon, Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Vienna). Now i am wondering if the global pass is also valid for public transport (busses, metro, tram etc.) within the cities. If so, i’d prefer the 22days pass. Do you guys have any tips and recommendations? Thanks so much! :)

Ferries between Greece and Italy; free or pay taxes
Hi,I am sorry to disturb, I’ve seen several different versions,Indeed, On the Interrail website, I’ve seen that there is a discount on the ferry journey between Italy and greece (Barri and Corfou),And I’ve also seen that it’s totally free (on the ferry company website (superfast ferries))Finally, I’ve seen that the seat is free, but we have to pay taxes, If it’s free, how to do it ? I’ve tried on the website, and at the end, if I put ‘null’, it’s free, but I don’t know what this means,Also, I am 24, and I can’t select the “Interrail Global Pass 2nd cl”,as a discount. I need to put that I am an adult. I hope you’ll help me, Tank you very much
Zug von Brenner - Bologna
HeyIch will am Freitag von Augsburg - Neapel fahren, dafür habe ich ein Italien Pass gebucht.Die Strecke Augsburg - Brenner würde ich mit einem normalen Ticket fahren und dann ab Italien das Interrail Italien Ticket für die Strecke Brenner - Neapel benutzen.Ich kann jedoch die Strecke Brenner - Bologna nicht Buchen bzw. sie nicht in meine journey hinzufügen, “conditions apply” steht in der App.Die Reservierung dafür konnte ich aber schon kaufen bzw. habe ich schon gekauft.Kann ich jetzt trotzdem mit diesem Zug fahren oder ist das nicht möglich?Ich muss um 16.00 Uhr in Bologna sein, da von dort mein bereits reservierter Zug nach Neapel fährt. Mit welchem Zug das am Ende klappt ist mir prinzipiell egal:) Vielen Dank bereits für eure Zeit
France Transport National Strike - Oct. 17-23: Impact on travel
Does anybody have information regarding a Transport National Strike in France starting Oct. 17 and running through Oct. 23?We have only seen it on one website (https://worldinparis.com/transport-in-france-strike-news-tips-for-traveling-to-paris) and nowhere else.Would that impact trains and flights from France? We are scheduled to fly from Bordeaux for Barcelona on Oct. 17 on Ryanair.I looked at trains as a potential plan, but most of them are sold out according to Trainline - with one available also using a bus to go from Narbonne to Barcelona.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

ticket with no seat assignment
I just scheduled our very first train ticket from Switzerland to Germany with our 1st class pass and there are no specific seat assignments. Do we just look for first class and take a seat? How do you know if that seat does not belong to someone. Just little nervous and traveling in little more then 2 weeks. So exiting!!! Thank you in advance

Traveling from London to Paris via Eurostar, but no seat reservations left
Trying to travel from London to Paris on May 30th, 2022 with my family (preferably in the morning). There are 4 of us total with 1st Class Global Eurail Pass Currently no seat reservations show available between May 26 and June 1st. I’ve checked both Eurail reservation and b-europe.com Have checked with connections through Brussels and Lille with no options on May 30th. If there are still open seats on the day of travel, with those seats be opened to Eurail passholders?
Eurostar seat reservation change
Hello,I have two seat reservations on Eurostar with the interrail pass however I cannot travel on those days anymore due to new travel restrictions/requirements.I know that if I cancel the reservations I won’t get any money back but is there an option to just change dates somehow?
book a reservation with mobile pass from b-europe?
Hi! Why can´t I book a ticket at the https://www.b-europe.com/EN with a interrail mobile pass? When I try to book a seat (Seat reservations required) the page asks for my interrail pass cover number and when I type in my number it says it's not valid and it also says it only works with a paper format pass. Is that correct? I have also seen lots of people with the same problem. I want to go from Paris to Bordeaux Saint-Jean on the 25 of June at 7:11 pm. how can I get a pass cover number when I have a mobile pass? What should I do?
How would it work if the country of residence, like the Netherlands, has electronic gates when you exit the station and return later to catch the next train?
It is stated on the web that the global pass can be used to travel in one’s country of residence during 1 outbound and 1 inbound trip per travel day. I have some questions about the technicality. The “Travel Diary” example lists “Brighton-London St Pan” as an example for the in/outbounds. This is strange in itself, since they are both in the same country, UK/England. In the case someone wants to travel from Station A1 to Station B, via Station A2 in the same country as Station A1, and it is the country of residence → Does he/she have to write A1 - A2 then A2-B separately in the “My Trip” section, or just “A1 - B”? Can the holder exit station A2 in the process and return later to catch the next train to Station B? If the answer is yes, how it would work if the country of residence, like the Netherlands, has electronic gates? Will exiting Station A2 accidentally be counted as doing a trip inside one’s country of residence and thus violating the rules?
Can I use the eurail pass within the country?
Hi Everyone!I was planning to travel to europe later this year. I am just confuse on how well I can use the pass. I wanted to know if we can use the pass within the country? For example I went to Switzerland and I want to travel all around Switzerland. Can I use the Eurail pass on the local trains within Switzerland and that includes any other country? Or does Eurail pass only works if you travel from one country to another? Thank You in advance
Seat Reservations from Zagreb to Split (Croatia)
We want to travel from Zagreb to Split on the 07:35 train on 2nd July. In the Interrail reservation tool it’s saying reservations are required, but it won’t let me make a reservation. I get the same message if I search for the same journey on different days and at different times. Does this mean all the seats are reserved on all the trains?! Or will I be able to reserve seats at Zagreb Station when we arrive a couple of days before? Thanks for your help. Below is the message I’m seeing:Prices unavailableNo price results were found for this connection. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please try searching for another connection or check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation. If no pass holder seats are available anymore you need to buy a separate full fare ticket to board.
Traveling in my own country with global interrail pass
Hello, I am from Paris. I am going to London then Liverpool from March 26th to March 28th. As I used my outbound and inbound journeys, I was wondering if it was possible to travel in my own country (France) and use my interrail pass in April (my pass is valid from March 26th to April 25th) ? Or can i only travel in my own country between my outbound et inbound journey ? I can book tickets on the interrail website for a round trip in France from April 14th to April the 17th but can I be sure that I’ll be travelling in good standings ? Thank you in advance for your help, Lucy
Passenger rights: Stranded due to cancelled trains. How to continue on the next day without using up a travel day?
Dear people of InterRail,due to cancelled trains I am stranded and can continue the journey only tomorrow.I have already entered the journey which I originally planned in the travel diary. The end point of my today's journey can also not be reached via a different route.I know that the EU passenger rights apply, which entitle me (a) for a overnight stay for the night and (b) continuing my journey tomorrow without the need to use another InterRail day.Since tomorrow I wanted to spend a day stationary, I did not want to use an InterRail day at all tomorrow.My question is now is regarding (b):What do I need to do that I can continue my journey without the need of another InterRail day?I have a confirmation of the cancellation of the trains from the train crew of another train company. The company whose trains are canceled does not have a ticket office here.My tomorrow's journey would 3 or 4 different carriers (all of which accept InterRail).I don't expect that I can just travel tomorrow w
