Get ready to travel
To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
We are planning a trip next year from 28 June to 12 July. We are holding off buying the pass to see if there is an Autumn/Black Friday offer. We can now book the Eurostar for our dates. Is it possible to make a booking before we buy the pass?
Hi there, Just wondering when does the Eurostar tickets are usually getting opened for reservation?I see that the system only shows me the tickets available till the 9th of Dec. I’m currently planning my trip on the 27th of Dec from London to Paris btw. Thanks in advance. Cheers
First time Interrail user here, so please bear with me 😀Planning a travel from Germany to Northern Italy. I would like to take a 3h break at Brenner station while travelling with the Eurocity from Munich to Bologna via Brenner. I learned from Seat61 Austria interrail info that there’s a surcharge for pass holders. So if on the same day I take a 3h stop at Brenner and board the next EC do I have to pay the surcharge again?
Hello everyone, and it's great that we can assist each other through this medium. I'm Gustavo from Chile, and I'll be travelling to Europe for a few days. Part of our journey will be by plane and some by train. We want to purchase the Global Pass for 5 days. On the first day, we plan to use it to travel from Amsterdam to visit The Hague and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. On the second day, we wish to go from Berlin to Brussels (Belgium), the third day from Brussels to Paris, the fourth day from Paris to Rome, and the fifth day from Rome to Milan. The issue I have is that my son will turn 12 years old while we're in Paris. So, for the last two days of using the Global Pass, he will be 12 years old. How can I manage this situation?
Hi there!I want to go from Aachen to Paris Nord on 5 November but the b-europe website no longer offers 2nd class seats. Is it possible to take a 1st class ticket even if I have a 2nd class pass? The website doesn't forbid me from doing this, but I'm more worried about the ticket inspectors if I'm not allowed to do
UPDATE: Customer Service came back to me - they know about the problem with the seat reservations and are working on it…Cross fingers that they manage to solve it quickly… Hello,I have just tried to do seat reservations on the interrail website (interrail.eu), but neither the starting point (Geneva) nor the destination (Paris or London) will show up. It seems to be a problem on the website, as I tried different starting / end points and the only thing that happens is that the page reloads as a blank page. I tried different browsers, all having with the same effect.Has anyone encountered the same problem?Sibylle
Hallo! Ich starte meine Reise bereits aus dem Ausland und fahre in mein Heimatland und bleibe dort auch eine Nacht. Für diese Reise würde ich jedoch ungern bereits meinen “Inbound” nutzen. Kann ich in der App meine Reise bis an die Grenze planen (der geplante Zug hält dort auch) und ab der Grenze dann ein gewöhnliches Ticket für mein Heimatland kaufen?Am nächsten Tag fahre ich dann wieder ins Ausland und einige Tage später wieder zurück ins Heimatland, wobei ich bei diesen zwei Fahrten dann meinen “In- und Outbond” nutzen wollen würde.
Hi all. Thank God for this community, we almost finished on planning and reserving our first family eurail trip. We plan to travel from Interlaken Ost to Zurich on November 15th via Luzern with the Panoramic Express (PE) 0904am. However, Railplanner, SBB and OEBB showed that there is no direct PE train to Luzern on our travel date. The train will stop at Meiringen, and we must take replacement bus from there to Giswil, and board the train again from Giswil to Zurich. We checked on SBB website, this is due to:“Interrupted service Giswil - MeiringenInterrupted rail services between Giswil and Meiringen.This is due to engineering work.” My questions are:Would be it be worth it to choose this PE2919, which require us to take bus half way? Do we need to make or pay another reservation for the bus? Then the PE2919 from Giswil to Luzern, do we need to make and pay another reservation?We really want to try Panoramic Express, but we wonder if we took the PE, we won’t be relaxed to enjoy the sc
Hi allWe travel from Paris to Interlaken Ost on November 13, based on Railplanner App and SNCB App, the earliest is to take TGV 9203 from Paris 0722am to Basel, then IC1069 Basel 11.28am to Interlaken Ost. We need to reach Interlaken Ost before 2pm as we have to take bus scheduled on 2.06pm to Iseltwald.Is there any other way to make reservation for TGV9203 other than from Railplanner? Also, Railplanner showed that we can make reservation for IC1069 although it’s not mandatory. But we thought Eurail pass holders didnt require to make payment for IC trains? A bit confused now Another questions, found that reservation fee for THV9203 is high. Please show us other route that maybe cheaper? Sorry for long post and thanks in advance.
US citizens (wife & I) planning on traveling to 4 locations in July 2024 (London-Paris, Paris-Zermatt, Zermatt-Brussels, Brussels-London). I want to buy 1st class pass and reservations. How accurate are the rates listed on the Eurail reservations that pop up? My hope is to book all reservations through Eurail’s website/app. If I cannot pick seats, how do i insure we are seated together (and would like the facing seats)? When boarding a train that doesn’t require reservations, how do you know seats have not been reserved by someone? How does the 1st class and 2nd class noted on Eurail map to the Business class, Standard Premiere class, & Standard class I read about in the comments?
Hello, I am a Dutch student which is going to study in Germany. Because I'm required to do so I will be a registered resident in Germany as well as in the Netherlands. I want to use public transport often when I am in Germany so I would probably like to buy a global pass for the time being. However, I would also sometimes like to travel back to my home in the Netherlands with the European Sleeper nighttrain. Because I am registered in both countries, I would like to know if it would be possible to buy an additional Benelux Pass (as a German resident) and a Global pass (as a Dutch citizen) so that I can use my inbound/outbound trip of my global pass later? I don't know if this is practical, however, I would just like to know if it would be allowed to make a seat reservation at the European Sleeper nighttrain with a Benelux pass together with a Global pass so that I don't have to use my inbound/outbound trip yet.
Hello all,My son and I have just successfully negotiated a trip combining our interrail pass and SNCF & Eurostar reservations to visit Nice in order to attend a match in the Rugby World Cup France 2023.The most pleasing element was the journey from Marseille to London St Pancras via Lille Europe which required reservations on the TGV & Eurostar but only used up one day in the pass. The Eurostar journey back was one of the two journeys that the pass enables one to take form or back to one’s home country - in our case the UK.I am really grateful to all of those people who responded to our requests for explanation and information on how the card and its combination with reservations works; they made a huge difference. Thank you all very much.The app worked very well for us and we took and used printed copies of the reservations for TGV and Eurostar reservations. I had the PDFs in my emails and would have been able to access then if necessary.Best wishes, John
I'm currently on the Trenitalia TPER 3910 from Ancona to Piacenza. You can find it on trenitalia.com and www.lefrecce.it websites, but not in the RailPlanner, DB (Deutsche Bahn) or Rome2Rio apps. This is crazy frustrating, and makes it so difficult to plan ahead. I got to know about this train at the Ancona train station, 2 minutes before departure, and I caught it 5 seconds before it left the platform.
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.
Hi everyone, I’m new here, I’m a music student from Uruguay looking for some advice for my upcoming trip.I’ll stay about a week in Croatia and a week in Germany, and maybe a few days in Austria and Czech Republic. I’m trying to understand what kind of pass or card would be the best option, and I have a few questions:Does a Eurail Global Pass include local transport, for example inside one city or connecting smaller cities? When using the tripplaner map in eurail.com, the city of Freiberg is not recognized so I wonder if there’s no connection with that city included in the Pass. If the Global Pass includes local transportation, would you recommend getting it, considering that the majority of my train rides will be inside Germany and inside Croatia? Or would it be better to get a BahnCard and pay an extra when I travel between countries? Could I get a BahnCard and a 4day Global Pass, so that I use the BahnCard in Germany and the Pass for connections between different countries? Would you

Hi All, I am travelling from Brussels to Paris tonight and I didn’t realise that a seat reservation is required. I thought Eurorail pass holders doesn’t require reservations. Now I got to know that all the seats are fully booked. Is it possible for me to travel without reservation? The officer told me that I have to take another ticket for travel by standing which cost 134£ per person. How can i use my eurrail pass for this trip?
Hi thereThis is our first time interrailing - my friend and I are in our 60’s and finding it long winded and confusing so I am turning to this community for enlightenment and hopefully guidance! I have booked 2 seats on 14.29 St Pancras Eurostar 25th September 2023. We wanted the earlier train but at the time of booking earlier was not available. I believe earlier is now available but on the Eurorail website where my booking is to be found it says there is no option to change. Is that correct? I find that quite surprising. ALSO ! Having found the night train we wanted Wednesday 27th September Bruges to Vienna 1808hr - 0915hr I go to book it on the Eurrail and no seats are available. Is there any other way to book an overnight couchette please? Many thanks in advanceSiobhan
