To ask all about our Passes, reservations & more
I have just tried to see if I can figure out how to book a trip and I’m after a little guidance as to whether this is the easiest way, and what i am doing wrong. First I went to Google Maps and plotted from my hotel address to my next hotel address, selecting the train option. Google tells me how far to walk to the nearest train station, which station that is, the path by train and the distance I need to walk at the other end.Then I went to bahn.de and punched in the two train locations that Google gave me, entered other criteria and did a search. In my case, it didn’t come up with any results, likely because the timetables aren’t released yet (December 10 I believe). After a little experimenting I got some results, however I don’t think Rome to Florence is 21 hours given I selected Show fastest connection. Clearly I am doing something wrong. Any suggestions please
Hi, we bought a Global Pass for three travelers. Some train trips have now been booked with seat reservations. However, since we are travelling from Bern or Basel to Prague at night, I can see some glitches or differences on the website timings and app planner.This has been added to our trip list since we opted for the no-reservation option. However, upon using the website today, this is now showing with a seat requirement. Will there be any chance to book a seat at the main station?
Hi- Looking for recommendations on best way to book trip for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) from Bayeux, France to Market Harborough, UK (1hr north of london) in mid June. We have 1st class Eurail passes (mobile). I think I have some parts figured out but could use input on a few things.Per Google maps, we can take get there in 3 main steps (all in one day):1- 930 am TER train from Bayeux, France to Gare St Lazare in Paris (1200) , then transfer to RER E- go one stop to get to Gare du Nord to pickup the Eurostar to London St Pancras 2- 1512 pm Eurostar to London St Pancras3- EMR train from London St Pancras to Market Harborough, UKHere are my questions:I know our Eurail pass will get us through legs 1+2 of the trip. Is it valid on EMR trains in UK (leg 3) since the 3 legs will be within a single day of travel? I searched and couldnt get a definitive answer. If pass is valid on leg 3 of trip to Market Harborough, would you recommend a reservation for that one hour ride since our Eu
Trying to book a 1st Class Reservation for 2 on the 24th from Nuremberg to Salzburg. Also from Salzburg to Stuttgart on the 26. Just end up getting error messages at check-out. Does this indicate full trains as I’ve tried a number of different departure times.Didn’t have any issues with any other legs of my trip. In and out of Austria is the only thing tripping me up. Help!

I am looking at travelling by train from my home in UK to Portsmouth (UK) to catch a ferry to Spain. The ferry would leave UK on the evening of the day I set off from home and arrive in Spain the following day.I would then travel in Spain and Portugal on the train using my Interrail pass. My return journey would be the same in reverse. Could I use my Interrail pass for these rail journeys in the UK even though I will be leaving / returning to UK on a ferry, not by train (such as Eurostar) ?Many thanks Bob

Hello Inter/Eurail community,I am posting this from a train that is currently traveling from Vienna to Dortmund. I just found out (purely by chance, as the rail planner app doesn’t show this), that the train I was supposed to take from Stuttgart Hbf to Bruxelles Midi runs only until Köln due to a strike. On the Deutsche Bahn website it says that there will be 4 replacement buses from Köln Hbf to Bruxelles Midi without any stops. Apparently these buses are a service by Univers Reisen but I can not find any information about them, no timetables, ticket costs, anything.I have two questions. Firstly, is this because these replacement buses are only meant for people being affected by this now interrupted connection? Secondly, is my global pass still valid on these replacement buses, and if so how do I add them to my pass since I don’t even know the times (yet).There is an alternative route that requires me to take 4 additional connections, something I would like to avoid if I can.Thanks!
Hi, I understand that I can travel outbound and inbound in my home country. In my case I would have to take a big detour to be able to reach the border of my country by train. Would that be problematic?And would I have to cross the border on the outbound day? Or could I also travel to the border and buy an ordinairy ticket to cross the border the next day?
Hello, I have question about the manual reservation for an interrail ticket.I have 7 travel days for one month and some journeys are not shown, so I have to do it manual. And at the end, it is not shown on the map. Furthermore, I do not know which train I need to take because if you make the reservation manual, the app does not show which train you should take. I do not know what I need to do and if the manual ticket would be valid. Did someone has a scandinavian journey with the interrail ticket? If yes, I would be happy to hear about that moreHere is an example for a manual ticket reservation:

Hello!I am unable to book a train from Milan to Tirano on our Global Pass on this site. It is only showing trips of 7 hours via Switzerland with numerous stops. But when I go to Rail Europe, there are direct trains from Milan to Tirano (2.5 hours). Why can’t I see this direct train on the Eurail site?I don’t want to book on Rail Europe and get charged as we have the Global Pass and travelling within Italy should be freePlease adviseTania
I am scratching my head to figure out the reservation system of RENFE trains, after some research I found out that this is an extremely complicated topic. Some questions that I’m not sure of: 1. Obligatory ReservationAs far as I understand, almost all trains in Spain require a reservation. The only exceptions are (a) suburb commuter service - aka Cercanias (or Rodalies in Catalunya) and (b) some regional trains - aka Media Distancia. (a) Regarding Cercanias trains : While I know reservation is not needed (and not possible), I cannot find the connection on railplanner app. For example, I am looking at the C1 service from Alicante to Murcia. Can anyone confirm this is indeed reservation-free ?(b) Regarding Media Distancia trains : These trains usally reqire seat reservations. Between touristy cities the only free connections I found are Barcelona - Valencia, Valencia - Alicante, Barcelona - Zaragoza - Marid. No luck finding one in Andalucia. I have the impression that the reservation-fre
Hi everyone,My family (2 adults, 2 children) and I already have Eurail passes but unfortunately I’m not an experienced Eurail traveller, so I apologise in advance if this is a silly question. We have already purchased and activated the Eurail pass for two days of travel earlier in December.We will be travelling from Vienna (Wien) to Prague (Praha) on Saturday 30 December 2023, preferably leaving around 10am. From what I can see, most of the trips listed on that day have “Reservations unavailable”. My question is: can we just go to the train station on the day and use our Eurail passes to book whatever seats are available, or does this mean that there are no seats available on those trains anymore?Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!Kind regards,Rob
