Evening all.I hope you are all well. I would like some advice and tips about using the global pass (specifically 3 month pass) for our travels around Europe.I have looked at various videos and reviews on YouTube regarding this way of travelling and most positive although, there are some that are negative and they do highlight some important issues.One guy was saying about reliability and frequency of trains in eastern Europe? can anyone confirm if this is the case please? Also apparently the train station names do not match with what is on the app so it can be a tad confusing according to the reviewers. Can someone who has travelled recently using the Interrail pass please advise on anything you think we should be aware of? We want to try plan in advanced as much as possible and to start our trip early-,mid next year and would appreciate all feedback, tips and advice.We understand that we have to make reservations in certain countries. Could someone please tell us what countries these
Hi! Am planning on travelling around Europe for the first time for a month, and we are leaving on Monday! and at the end we are travelling around Europe going from Belgrade → Skopje → Sofia → Bucharest → Cluj Napoca → Budapest. I am confused as ithe Interrail website says that there is no train from Belgrade to Skopje (it doesn’t even recognise Niš as a place) neither Skopje to Sofia, or not even Belgrade to Sofia (as we thought travelling to Skopje was the problem). I was just wondering if there is actually a way to get to these countries because I have looked online and it says there are trains and routes (such as the Hellas train) but then when I look it up to make reservations it doesn’t exist on the website. Is it a case where we wing it and book it there or can i not actually travel there? Thank you! This is very urgent so any help would be appreciated!!
Travelling in Romania with a mobile pass seems extemely challenging. Is this known by Interrail? Did I miss any warnings by Interrail?Is it even possible?We are travelling with 3 kids, and tomorrow we want to use a day. 3 trains that do not need reservation according to interrail. Fingers crossed...
I am working on my itinerary for my honeymoon and the last place we will be visiting in Italy before we go elsewhere is Venice. Our plans are to go to Salzburg, Austria after we leave Venice and schedule wise, we were thinking we would be leave Venice on a Saturday morning and take a train to Salzburg. My question is, do they have morning trains that go from Venice to Salzburg on Saturdays? This would be at the beginning of May this next year.
Hi! I’m currently planning an Interrail trip for August. I’d like to follow the orient express Itinerary, if everyone did this trip would be perfect if he/she could tell me something about this experience. Particularly I would know how can I reach Sofia from Belgrade and then Istanbul (reservation, prices, autobus ecc..).Thank you so much! Mariateresa
Italy, France, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Norway trip. How are the regional train connections in those countries and are there informations about them?
Hey Everyone,i’m planning my first interrail trip during august or september. My main aim is to visit Italy, France, Spain and in a a seperate trip Finland, Sweden and Norway.Since i prefer spontanous decisions i’m not a big fan of the mandatory reservations on many highspeed trains, especially in southern europe. But during my research i could’nt find much usefull informations about other fast options for traveling by train.My questions are now: How are the regional train connections in those countries and are there informations about them, like maps that show which destination you can reach with which type of train? In Germany for example you have the ICEs/ICs as highspeed trains, but also different types of regional trains. The Regionalexpress for example does’nt need any type of reservation and you can still travel 300km in 3 hours. Are there options like these in the mentioned countries?I would be very grateful, if someone could also provide links if there are such maps or other u
Hi,I am planning a scandinavia trip for 1 or 2 months sometime in April-June on my own and would like to spend a few days in Ylläs. Is it correct that there is absolutely no “direct” bus connection or so between Kolari and Gällivare? So the only public transport way is to make the huge detour via Lulea etc? Do you know where I could ask for a rideshare if maybe someone is travelling by car? Or how high do you think the chances are that I will meet someone along the way that is planning this route? :D
I would like to hear your advice on my travel plans.Hope to be able to make this trip in the months of May, June or at the latest in September 2022. Have a global pass, 4 days within 1 month. My journey will start in Belgium, my home country.There I will take the train in Essene, Liedekerke or Denderleeuw. I want to use the Nightjet connections to Italy, and would like to travel to Rome because this is the southernmost connection that can be reached by Nightjet.From Brussels I would then travel to Munich with ICE. From Munich I then take the Nightjet to Rome, arriving in Rome at 9.10 am. Hopefully if the Nightjet isn't delayed, I'd like to take a trip to Naples too. This would only be 1 hour away by train.I would also like to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa (if there is enough time)The 3rd day that we use the interrail pass, we have to arrive in the village, La Cure, in Switzerland. My brother comes to pick us up there by car, he lives in Les Moussieres, France.It is a 30 minute car ride

Hello!I’m planning on going to Croatia on my trip this summer but I really want to see the Plitvice lakes. As far as I know we can’t get there by train (correct me if wrong). So I want to make it a day trip from Split, and after visiting I don’t want to go back to Split but to Zagreb instead.Does anyone know if something like this is possible (maybe done it yourself) and do you have to reserve your trip to Plitvice in advance? Any tips more are welcome! grts.
Hello everyone!This was probably asked many times but I need a proper confirmation. If I take a night train from Amsterdam to Prague, where there are no direct train route and is required to have 1 change of train somewhere in Germany, would it count as 2 days or still 1 day pass? I’m very confused with this rule because there are no direct routes!
A note for anyone taking the train from Belgrade to Podgorica. On the Interrail app and website when you search for Beograd and select Beograd Central, it automatically switches to Topcider. I learnt the hard way that the train does indeed go from Beograd Central and not Topcider. Do not go to Topcider.

I just need some general advise. I haven’t done Interrail for some 40 years and time has passed, I’m very rusty and much older getting my head around Interrail now is proving difficult, can anyone help? I am planning a trip to Italy starting next Monday and I have not booked anything yet. I am flying to Milan and taking a train to Lake Como for the first few days, I probably can do that on a normal ticket rather than using one of my travel days (I was thinking of buying a 6 day travel pass one country). I want to travel from Milan to the following places, Cinque Terra, Pisa, Florence, Siena, Rome, Naples (Pompeii and Sorrento) - then the final leg Naples to Syracuse in Sicily. I really don’t know how to start to book, all my trains / reservations or even if this is the best way to do it. I really need any help that anyone can offer me please to point me in the right direction, I am just finding it all a bit overwhelming. Please can someone advise me? Thank you in advance.
I bought a Eurail Pass but the schedule for a few routes I need is. not open yet. It seems that since this is less than 2 months away, I would be able to reserve seats. I am needing Florence to Ravenna on June 18, 2022 and Ravenna to Rome on June 26, 2022. I am only seeing trains available through June 11 and there is only one per day? Does anyone know when I these needed trains will be available to reserve?

Hello,I would like to travel from Kosice (Slowakia) to Brasov (Romania) and there is an option to travel via Chop. This city is in Ukraine (close to the border). Is it possible to travel that route with a Global Pass or do I have to pay extra, and how about covid-regulations in Ukraine for travellers who only visit the railway station?
Hi. I’m deciding my route, where to visit, stay, everything. I’m planing to buy “10 days within 2 months” interrail and I want to stay approximately 5 days in every location. I hope that 60€ for a day will be enough for everything(accommodation, museums, renting a bike, food, go to bars, etc). I hope that if I make reservations 2 days before i go (accommodation and for train), it will be fine. That’s what I want to know. I’m reading your comments but also there’s a lot of information. I guess I need to do early reservation for Barcelona to Paris. And I changed Poznan with Prague . Feel free to share your thoughts, thanks a lot.
Leuke interrailers!Dit bericht is in het Nederlands, maar reageer gerust in het Engels.Mijn vriend en ik zijn bezig met het plannen van onze interrailreis en zouden graag het Tatra-gebergte in Slowakije willen bezoeken vanuit het plaatsje Starý Smokovec. Nu zijn we daarvoor in Krakau. Het probleem is dat de treinplanners ons via een grote omweg sturen (Via Katowice naar Tsjechië) om vervolgens Slowakije in te komen. Ik denk dat de grens tussen Polen en Slowakije dicht is? Weet iemand of deze grenzen binnenkort weer opengaan en/of er weer treinen gaan rijden tussen Polen en Slowakije. Eigenlijk tussen Krakau en Poprad/Starý Smokovec?Groetjes!
