Hey there, fellow traveller! Do you have any exciting Eurail/Interrail adventures planned in the next few weeks? We are inviting you to join us on a little mission to make our app even better and score yourself a chance to win 2x Interrail/Eurail Global Passes for 7 travel days within 1 month (2nd class).

  

We’re introducing an exciting new functionality in our Rail Planner App that is designed to enhance your travel experience by giving you more up-to-date timetable data.   
   

We are interested in hearing about your experience with this new version of the planner. All you have to do is try out the timetable in the app as you plan your trip or travel with your Pass and share your feedback with us.

  

To get started: download the dedicated Beta testing app and start planning your trip using the timetable. Then continue to use the Beta testing app on your Interrail/Eurail trip. After you sign up, we’ll send you a survey. By sharing your feedback through the survey, you automatically enter into our giveaway for those 2 free Passes!

Kind regards,

Unfortunately, I still haven't received a survey link even though I registered over 2 weeks ago.
What should I do? Should I register again?

@Jody How do I report a problem with the Beta version?

If you have the online update switched on, it is impossible to add a journey manual as it takes so long time for the system to load.

Normally, if you enter XXX in the field for the departure station, you get a question if you want to add a journey manually. This doesn't happen in the Beta version with the online update activated. 

 

It should work like this:
