Choose seats for reservations on Vienna - Bupapest - Prague - Berlin
Hi allBooking some routes as above - it’s simple to book reservations (even when not required), but on any of these journeys, is there a way to choose seats (either prior to booking reservation or after)? Travelling as a family of four, so keen to try and book tables or at least together.I saw something on the OBB site detailing seat selection when booking on the app, but perhaps that’s not available for, for example, Vienna to Budapest? Can’t find it on the app when booking.Any advice appreciated, thanks.
Pay again for 1st class?
Hey! I wonder if anyone can give me a help.A week ago I bought 4 Eurail passes (4 days within 1 month) in 1st class for my family.When I was booking our first train journey from Barcelona to Lyon, I noticed that there is a seat charge to make seat reservation in 1st or 2nd class.As I said, I bought 1st class eurail passes.Do I really need to pay an extra to travel in 1st class?Regards,
Reservation for train Varna > Istanbul (Halkali)
Hi, I would like to go from Bucharest to Istanbul. Since the Bosphorus Express night train is no longer serving the route (AFAIK) I decided sleep in Varna and from there continuing on route Varna Sp. > Kamobat / Kamobat > Plovdiv / Plovdiv > Kapikule. For Kapikule > Halkali there is request for reservartion and I struggle to acquire it online. Because in the Rail Planner app I see the info about it: At the ticket office (subject to availability).That scares me cos I don’t like end up in vacum without any move. Cos how can I know that it wont be full already. As I google it; found out the https://ebilet.tcddtasimacilik.gov.tr but that page returning me: “No travel solution found, try again by changing departure and arrival stations/dates”Whatever date I try it’s still the same message. razpisanie.bdz.bg don’t know the connection. As for bileteinternationale.cfrcalatori.ro/ it knows the station (Bucharest > Halkali) but info is “Not available online” Basically I don’t need
Added tickets/connections wont' load timetable details
Hi, my app working so far OK - but since this day when I go for My Trip > in “View as list” section where have my connections added, if I click on any connection for detailed info for each train (past or upcomming), the app show for me only starting and ending station. But will not unroll/list all the stations on the way. Thus can’t see where actually I’m at the time, calculate delay agains maps/GPS position when arriving at some station. So far phone restarted, restarted application - several times. I’m not on VPN, do have internet, at full speed now, no throttling applied, all other applications working well. App is with full acces within Android for all what is needed. I see only this: When tapping in the area roughly defined by the height of yellow line - usually it shows me all the stops on the way. But not this time. It won’t react anymore. Before this issue such action resolved in this result (pic added is a cropped out prtscn): I noticed “last timetable updated:” info - but

Validity of seat reservation
Hi,We have seat reservations on a train from Odense to Copenhagen.This trip will be part of a travel day that will end in Stockholm. Now we have changed our travel plan and will stay in Malmö a few days before continuing to Stockholm. We will therefore not use our interrail pass for the short trip between Odense and Malmö. My question is: Could we still use our seat reservations on the Odense - Copenhagen leg? Or are the seat reservations only valid during a travel day in combination with the interrail pass?
Hi allAfter some advice. I purchased my eurail pass back in December. I read that they needed to activate it at the time of purchase (this wasn’t an option as my partner did not have his new passport yet), or at the station before our first journey.My mobile pass is prompting me to ‘activate pass’, so I am a little confused with what it says re activation on the website.I have added two journeys to our trip, but have not received a QR code as yet for our journeys. Is this because our passes have not been activated? I am so confused the more I read. I’d love some help.Kind regards Danielle
Zürich HB to Ljubljana on 15 July 2022 reservation
I have a eurail global pass Could anyone kindly advise me is there another way to book this train (Zürich HB to LESCE Bled or Ljubljana on 15 July 2022) without making international calls? I live in Hong Kong and it can be quite expensive to call a number in Switzerland

Hi,We (family of 4) have Interrail global passes and need to travel from Zürich to Lierna (by lake Como, Italy) on June 19th and from Lierna to Innsbrück on June 26th. I know the Italian timetables are slow to get published, but I'm getting anxious because it's only a couple of weeks and I'm still not able to see the timetables except for the high speed trains. I've been checking both Trenitalia and SBB websites. Am I missing something? I would be extremly grateful if someone could help me with finding good routes and timetables for those dates! I'm also a bit conflicted as to wether or not to get reservations (when they are not compulsory). The SBB website is showing extremely high occupancy for some of the connections that I've been looking at for example next Monday (the same day of the week that we will be travelling), although I've learned here that seat reservations are generally unnecessary in Switzerland.
I need some help. I have a first class pass for July and August. I am travelling to several countries and when I look at booking seat reservations, a lot are green and state ready to book - no seat reservation required. For the longer trips I would like to reserve a seat to be on the safe side even though it states it isn’t necessary. I have just discovered one train has said prices unavailable - pass holder reservations may be sold out. Does this mean even though we don’t need to book a seat and we are ready to board that there may be no seat available at all? I have been regularly checking so I can book at the earliest time possible. I don’t feel comfortable just winging it.
No train options available from Marseille to Barcelona
Hi, I’m trying to book seat reservations for two travelers from Marseille to Barcelona on July 10th, using the Eurail pass. I am given options when I search however when clicking on the options the price will disappear and I am unable to add the reservation to my cart. Other options remain available, but when attempting to pay will say “one of the less of your journey cannot be booked.” Wondering if there are any other options I can take to book these tickets.
1st class seat reservations with 2nd class global pass shows as allowed and cheaper
Hello,I have seen variations of this question but none quite answer my specific concern.So, perhaps someone can offer some insight. We have 4 Eurail 2nd class passes and we’re trying to reserve Nice-Marseille on the https://travel.b-europe.com site. This site is provided on the eurail site as one of the alternate options when booking seat reservations. The site asks for our eurail ticket class and I promptly provide the correct info, 2nd class passes. The site then shows us two options for tickets, 2nd class tickets and 1st class tickets. The first class tickets are actually cheaper (68 Euro v 80 Euro) and if I continue, it will still acknowledge that we have indeed 2nd class passes and have 1st class tickets in our cart. It even details the discount applied. So my question is can I buy and use these first class tickets?I read so many answers detailing that since first is more expensive you’ll wind up paying the difference but in this instance 1st class is actually cheaper and I
Hello, I see this topic has been debated before, but reading through the forum I don’t find a definitive answer.So here is the question: can I use two inbound trips or two outbound trips from my country of residence, or does it have to necessarily be one inbound and one outbound?The Interrail website/rules state that it should be one inbound and one outbound.The Eurail app doesn’t really seem to care, as long as no more than two days are used. But I never tried.The answers to previous similar questions on this forum all say that it “should” be ok to do two inbounds or two outbounds, but I don’t find a solid it “IS” ok to do so.Does anyone know for sure? I don’t want to be in the position of having the app reject my travel plan when I’m about to board a train.Thank you in advance for your input.
Train from Tirano to Milan in Summer 2023
We are set to come down into Tirano on the Bernina Express (from Chur) in August, but need to get to Milan from there. I know there is a regional train, and that we can’t buy our tickets ahead of time. Is there a place to find the Summer 2023 schedule for this train line?
Seat reservation Grece
Hello, My name is Lucie, I am passionate about travelling and I am going to Grece by train with an interail pass. I will take a ferry to Patras that arrive on the 15 of June, from which I would like to go to Kalavryta as the road look amazing. I saw we can book the ticket from Diakopto to Kalavryta but I don't see where we can make only the seat reservation. I just see 'Eurail" in the reduction but it is only 3 euro less than the full price (and more expensive than a youth ticket) so I guess it should not be that as it is quite expensive for an interail pass. Does anyone know more about it?Later on the afternoon, I would like to take a train from Diakopto to Athens. I saw there is one (with one correspondence) at 20H20. I guess it is there eventhough it is not on the interail app? On the website, I saw we can not make seat reservation, is my interail pass therefore enough to get in the train? Thank you in advance for your attention to my question, Lucie
Reservations for Balkans Trip
Hi,I am trying to make reservations (and have been trying to for weeks) for connections from Istanbul → Sofia, Podgorica → Belgrade and Split → Zagreb, but whenever I click on anything it just says that seat reservations are not available.Seems like a lot of other people have had issues with pre-booking these reservations. Are reservations for all of these supposed to be made at the train station? Are you able to make reservations for the Istanbul → Sofia train at the Sirkeci station in Istanbul, even if the train to Sofia leaves from Halkali station?Any insight would be really appreciated! Thanks so much!
DB reservations will cost more
Hi, from 11 June 2023 will DB - Deutsche Bahn increase the cost of a seat reservation. 2nd class from 4,50 € to 4,90 € per journey 1st class still 5,90 € per journey, but customers with Super Sparpreis and Sparpreis fare will not get the reservation for free anymore. Should be less reserved in 1st class in Germany Family reservation from 9 € to 9,80 € per journeyYou can pay less using ÖBB or CD reservation service for 3 EUR/train or 72 CKZ/trainBut keep in mind that the price is still for a journey and not per train, so often it cost less than two reservations from ÖBB or CD.Via Interrail.eu or Eurail.com the cost is 6 EUR + 2 EUR fee per train. Avoid this service for trains with optional reservation in middle Europe and German speaking countries.
Sofia - Arad > Arad - Warszawa Zachodnia
Hi, I would like to take this connection up to Warszawa from Sofia. Starting from Sofia for Craiova - Arad (IR 349) there is RQ for seat reservation.On IR page it shows that it’s not available cos only paper option from station is possible. But for this connection I did not found on cfrcalatori.ro option only for seat reservation > they requesting me to pay whole ticket. But I have a ticket with IR pass. On their page there is a lot of seat available - but not via interrail page. The info presented is:“No longer availableThis seat reservation is only available as paper ticket and can't bedelivered to you in time. Try booking in person at the station.” OK, so hopefully when I arrive at the staion it will still be possible to get a place. The next connection shown in IR app is: Arad - Warszawa splitted for 2 connections Arad - Wien > Wien - Warszawa Arad - Wien HbfStarting as train named (NT 346) here starting in RO again I have no other option on the web page (international trains
Refunds on seat reservations in Italy, Switzerland and France
So we had a ferry scheduled from igoumenitsa to Ancona on the 5th of June, and have seat reservations back home all brought from Ancona to London. However Supperfast ferries threw a spanner in the works this evening by messaging us to let us know the Ferry is no longer stopping at Igmoumentsa, after spaking with them they advised us that we have to leave the day before or the day after, Our interrail pass will run out before we got home to London if we leave the day after, and we are unable to leave the day before because of work. Instead we are looking at getting the Ferry to Bari, which is fine, although we will require a different set of seat reservations from Bari to London.We want to know if seat reservations are refundable? and if so how it works? I can just see on my Interrail account you have to click a button and interrail will ask the train company if we get a refund. But that;s a bit problematic, as we might find out that we don’t get a refund and in that case we would try a
