Hello everyone,We are a group of five people that have Interrail global passes for the 2nd class and we need help with two trains, one from Hamburg to Copenhagen at the 7th of August (leaving Hamburg at 23:56 and reaching Copenhagen at 8:19). We have already booked a reservation for a train that leaves the next day (at 8:19 AM) from Copenhagen to Stockholm, so we don’t want to miss that. But the one that leaves at 23:56 from Hamburg says that the reservations are sold out. If it had to be done, we would just try to find a train that would take us straight from Hamburg to Stockholm and just try to cancel the reservation (if it’s even possible, some of them were sold out and some were unavailable because of some sweden rail track repairs from what I’ve read). The same goes for the train from Copenhagen to Hamburg at the 14th of August (leaving Copenhagen at 5:17 and reaching Hamburg at 10:05). We would like to catch the train after this one that we have a reservation for (from Hamburg to
Hey there, In may i bought the interrail youth pass 2 months. I activated it in june, and its valid untill the end of August. Today (26/06) i traveled from utrecht cs to dusseldorf and back in one day. The ticket inspector just told me that i’ve used all of my in/outbounds already which would mean that i’m not able to travel from my home country (the netherlands) to another country in europe. The app says i have 67 days left…. I was planning to go to switzerland for a week starting from the 31st of july. How do i plan my trip now? do i buy seperate tickets to the border? i am also 17 so i travel with 40% discount in summer. Can someone help me plan my trip without in/outbounds? It’s pretty confusing… thanks a lot!
Hello hive mind!I am planning to take the night train from Bucurest Nord to Halkali. In the rail planner app, and on https://bileteinternationale.cfrcalatori.ro/, this train is shown as one train with no changes on the way. However when I tried to book the reservation at the DB travel center, I was told that I have to change two times on the way. Checking the time table (https://p.bdz.bg/www/p/t/ptev-mezhd-cfr-2022-lyato-3011.pdf) the trip is also shown with a changeover. Does anybody know which information in valid?Thanks in advance :)
Hello :) my girlfriend and I are planning to travel through Scandinavia with the interrail pass. We will start on the 15th of July and will be travelling for 2 months. I was wondering if any of you have some tips on what to see. Mainly we want to hike a lot, go kayaking, maybe rafting. Also we will take a tent with us, so that we can save some money. If you have any recommendations for hikes, places to see or anything about scandinavia please let us know. Christian
I am quietly working out my plans to travel from Brussels to Naples.The travel date is not fixed yet, but will normally be somewhere at the end of August ... and 1st week of September.The route I have in mind:Brussels North - Cologne (ICE)Cologne - Basel (ICE)Basel - Lugano (IC)Lugano - Milan (RE)Departure 6u32am, arrival 17u17pm.If I would like to reserve a seat for the ICE, I pay 5.30 euros for 1st class per person, per journey.I wouldn't want to do that, but my travel partner isn't convinced about trains, so maybe better to reserve a seat after all. Otherwise I risk having to change seats several times.1/Why does the SBB travel planner not show the train at 16u02 pm departing from Lugano in August ?Is that because not all travel times have been communicated from Italy yet?2/Would the SBB travel planner show a connection via Bern and Brig on August 26, because the 16:02 train from Lugano to Milan is not (yet) available?3/Is it easy to get from Milan Central to Milan Porta Garibaldi?O
Hi,I would like to travel from Skopje to Thessaloniki in August. I know that the train is not an option on this route so I will have to take the bus. However, I cannot seem to find any information online on International busses departing from Skopje. I did find a Rule Turs bus bookable on busticket4.me or getbybus on Tue, Thu, Sat: Skopje - Thessaloniki 8.30-13.05, but I don't know how reliable these sites are as I could not find a (working) site of Rule Turs itself. Does anybody have more information/experience regarding this route?Thank you in advance.
Me and my boyfriend are planning an interrail trip from Amsterdam to Athene. We want to travel from Amsterdam to Innsbruck and from Innsbruck to Zurich. Thereafter we want to travel to Serbia to continue our journey to Athene, but we can not find a connection between Zurich or another place in Swiss and Belgrado in Serbia. Has anyone done this before and can tell us how we can travel between Swiss and Serbia? Thanks in advance! :)
Hello! I bought my global passes yesterday but couldn’t make any reservations right away & now it’s not showing any seat reservation possibilities on August 1st, 23:51 train Ljubljana to Munich. If I look at RailEurope it’s showing it’s running/seats are available. Any suggestions on how to book it?
Hi all,I am currently travelling in Lithuania. I know that the connections are not possible from Poland and yet took a bus to come. However, the application shows that it is possible to travel through the inner main cities - for example, Vilnius-Klaupedia, Vilnius-Šiauliai…Moreover I read on related topics that it was possible to travel in Lithuania with Interrail. And on the website, it is written that bookings are not compulsory. However this morning, I took a train to Šiauliai and the controller validated my ticket, but she said I was missing the booking. Then I had to pay a bus to come back because they were no booking available anymore. My question is, how do you normally travel with Interrail in Lithuania, without the booking fees ? At the station, I was told that the booking was not for free. But in the app, it is not written that a booking is mandatory and as I wrote, it is even mentionned that it us not compulsory. Thanks in advance for your answers !
does anyone know where I can book the EN 463 (night jet) from Munich to Budapest? I can only find the connection Munich-Vienna. The train is displayed everywhere, but there are no booking options.If the train is not running at the moment, is there an alternative to get from Germany to Budapest by night train?Thank you
My son has a two month Eurail Pass with 15 train rides. We have friends in a ski town called VARS in the Alpes. I see that there is a train from Paris to Chorges. Can I get my son from Chorges to Mont Dauphin via bus? I think he can get a ride from Mont Dauphin to Vars from our friends but this seems the most efficient? Also, does the Eurail pass cover the TGV high speed train? In that case he can take that from Paris (Lyon)-Grenoble. I would then need to get him from Grenoble to Mont Dauphin where he could get picked up. So looking for the most efficient way to get my son from Paris-Vars. Cheers! Joe
hello all, I see that if I am to avoid any further reservation costs then I will need to travel at a slower pace and possible take a more senic route.I had planned down to Valence to be near the express train to Milan from Chambery, however I’m not wishing to spend much more money on reservations for the 5 of us!!!!!I had dreamt of a trip in a life time on the Brenina Express but it is become apparant that it may not be a dream for all the family so I am asking you if there is a route that could be of interest for kids that takes us from France into Itlay possibly going a little higher up to drop back down to Milan, then to the coast and back into France to take the nice to Paris train home. It is interesting how many variations the planner can provide with such a range of stops. Ideally I’m looking to brake the scenic journey into two parts with around 3-4hrs travel max. and apptempting to avoid the expense of city centre accoadation. Any suggests, ideas or shared past experience appr
Hey,How are the train connections in the England/Ireland/Scotland and how good or bad does traveling by train work there ?Do I need train reservations ?I heared that trains are not very reliable there. I have never been there and also don’t really know what i want to see yet. I’m interested to visit some cities but also country side (maybe cumbria?) I don’t have any specific plan but i’m looking for ideas 😀 Please share your experience and destinations ! 🤗
Hello together,I’d like to travel from Tende to Cuneo with an Interrail Global Pass using the RE22956. According to the Interrail App, a seat reservation is required for this connection (though it’s a regional service?!) Is this correct and if so, where could I book a seat reservation (so far not possible via eurail or Trenitalia). Many thanks in advance!cheers, Julien
Hey all! I’m in love with traveling Europe via train instead of plane, but I have a trickier route for work this time!I want to travel from Berlin to Istanbul and back (preferably different routes), and I believe the train from Sofia to Istanbul is open again! Do you have any suggestions of routes to take, and any advice for this big a trip? (probably will stay in a couple of hostels on the way there and on the way back). Thanks!!
Have bought a 2 month pass and am planning to do a winter wonderland. Has anyone got experience of Norway/Sweden/Finland during Feb / Mar and what would your main recommendations be - would trying to do all three within 3 weeks be silly at that time of year ? Would it be better to settle with just Norway and Sweden ?Trying to organise myself, but am aware that timetables/reservations will not not yet be available. Does anyone know what time of year the Winter timetables get issued.
Are seats reserved via interrail/eurorail valid if the local train carrier says the train is sold out?
I’m trying to book a train from Stockholm to Copenhagen on the 23rd June. On the Swedish train website (sj.se) nearly all trains are sold out on this date (which makes sense because its just before midsummer so would be a busy time), but on the interrail reservation system it shows tickets available for nearly every train. Has anyone faced a similar situation? I’m concerned that if I book a reservation via interrail there may be a mistake and the reservation not actually valid. I’m traveling with a young child so its fairly important that we actually get seats as well as just not being thrown off the train.
