Get ready to travel
To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
I am trying to book seat reservations trains in France. I need pass cover numbers for myself and my husband to do this. How do I get a pass cover number for a digital Eurailpass? The trains are TGV 6074 Nice Ville to Marseilles St Charles and IC 4764 Marseilles St Charles to Toulouse Matabiau on May 6th.
Whilst checking a few options recently I have seen some UK trains requiring reservations. The latest was when I was doing a check on a UK planner for the recent question on Holyhead to London. There are a few direct trains operated by Avanti and they clearly say a reservation is required to travel on those trains. I have also seen some LNER trains with the same requirement on the Interrail planner.
i'm getting desperate i've been searching support pages for two hours for any information.in order to make a reservation, i have to register as a traveler. but this is only possible if i have a Pass cover number.i have an online Pass and there is supposedly no such number.can someone simply explain to me how i can add myself as a traveler for an online Pass without this number?Moderator note: replaced passport with Pass to clarify the topicSimilar topic:
I used up my inbound and outbound journey. Can I use my pass starting at the border, or at the first station after the border?
Due to unfortunate circumstances, I had to interrupt my trip and used both my inbound/outbound travel days to The Netherlands.When I want to resume my trip from my home country, I can use my Dutch subscription until the border. However, how does it work with Interrail? Can I use my pass starting at the border, or at the first station after the border? In other words: Do I need to buy a supplementary ticket from the last Dutch station to the first non-Dutch station? Or do the two different train cards merge seamlessly?
I want to travel from Amsterdam to Basel with ICE 105 on Monday the 18th July at 08:08. The rail planner app states “seat reservation recommendation” but checking oebb.at and bahn.com it seems that the train is fully booked. As the app says that reservations are recommended but not mandatory, I believe I should be able to travel, but I don’t want to gamble. Can someone confirm or deny? I’m fine with moving around in the train if my seat gets taken.Thanks,
I am trying to plan a trip to Italy in the Summer of 2022 when I was looking online at the train schedules, I noticed that after a certain date, some trains are not available. For example I was looking at trains from Rome to Perugia and it shows trains that are available until June 12, after June 12 there are no trains that go from Rome to Perugia. I found this with a few other trains, is there something I am looking at wrong or do the trains just not run after June 12?I was thinking maybe it has to do with being too far in advance but I am able to look at other itineraries a year in advance.I have traveled a lot throughout Europe but this will be my first time using EuRail, so I am still a little unsure of how it works! I would love to book my trip as soon as I can so any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello, I would like to take a train from Salzburg to villach and villach to venice but there is only 6minuts of transfer between the two trains, so I’m scared to miss the train from villach to Venise, because we don’t know at all the train station of villach and 6minuts of transfer seems very short.
While my husband and I are traveling, our first leg of our journey through Italy, almost every train says it requires 1st class tickets that we will need to buy. I am trying to figure out how to buy (we already have the 2nd class italy pass) 1st class tickets for this trip so I can also get seats reserved. Thanks for any help!
Hallo,Ich bin ein Neuling hier. Wir haben mobile Interrail Global Pass für 22 Tage gekauft. Mit einiger Mühe habe ich es geschafft, den Pass mit unseren Daten " zu bestücken". Als Startdatum habe ich den 25.04.22 angegeben. Nun hat sich unser Startbeginn auf den 26.04.22 verschoben und ich wollte dies in den Details der Reisenden ändern. Es kommt aber die Meldung, dass die Details der Reisenden nicht geändert werden können. Kann bitte jemand weiterhelfen? Vielen Dank
Hi, I purchased a eurail pass for my trip travelling throughout Europe for 4 weeks. I thought this would save stress and money however when I arrived for my first train to Paris I was unable to make it on any of the trains and had to purchase a ticket anyway. My question is how can I avoid this happening for other cities where I may possibly be stranded without accommodation. The train company were not affiliated and could not help. There is no personal customer service making me think this pass / company is a total rip off!!
According to NS International Interrail is not valid anymore (even with seat reservation) on the ICE from the Netherlands towards Germany between 6:00 and 16:00, during the summer months (17 June - 18 August). 🤐 During the period from 17 June to 18 August 2023, Eurail and Interrail travellers cannot use the ICE International trains towards Germany with departure times between 6am - 4pm from a station in the Netherlands. Even with a separate seat reservation, travel on these trains is not allowed for Eurail and Interrail travellers during the specified period.

Hello.. I am new to this eurail website and I started planning my travel and I saw in planner in mobile app I turned on filter for No seat reservations required and searched for travel from kopenhagen to hamburg. In the results I get I see high speed train and one IC train and it says the reservation is recommended.I want to know is it just a suggestion or I have to do reservation in that case?
HelloWe want to travel (with our two kids) on a night train from Split to Zagreb in August (on a Monday night). The reservations tool seems to say we don’t need a reservation, which I am sure is not true! We want to book a couchette room so that we can all have a bunk. I have spoken to the Croatian railway company HZPP, but they said that with an interrail pass we can only reserve the couchette in person at the railway station. We will only be able to get to the train station on the day we want to travel. We can’t afford not to travel that night, as we have a tight schedule the next day. Does anyone know if it gets full up? Is it safer to book and pay for a couchette separately? it’s not expensive as there’s a special discount currently. Any thoughts very welcome! Thank you
Hey guys, I am thinking about using the current Interrail offer. Since I'm planning a vacation in Corsica in the summer anyway, I wanted to ask if you can also use Interrail there, for example from Bastia to Ajaccio? For any experience reports I would be extremely grateful, wish you a nice Sunday :-) Warm regardsRené
