Hi Traveling Community,I am having a hard time finding the best way to get from Como to Tirano so that my family can take the Bernina Express this June. Does anyone have experience with this? Is it best to book a train reservation to Bellinzona and take a bus from there to Thusis and on to Tirano? Does anyone know how much the bus fare is?I welcome any other suggestions.Thanks much!Sommer
Hello!We are wondering how to go from Östersund(SE) to Trondheim (NO). In the interrail app you don't see quick options to travel between these cities. Nevertheless, we have realized that taking trains from Östersund to Storlien (Sweden) and Storlien (Norway) to Trondheim separately, the trip does not take more than 4 hours. Has anyone done this route? Do Storlien (Sweden) and Storlien (Norway) are the same train Station?Does anyone recommend how to cross between the two countries?Thank you very much!
Hi, this is my first time travelling to Europe with my partner. He is currently a short term residence of Spain till end of April 202 & will return home. At the point of ordering the rail pass, should he still order the interrail pass? We are travelling from 21 Mar to 2 April 2022. My itinerary is like this: London to Munich 23rd March apparently based on the guide from Seat61.com I can do sleeper train option 1 from London 23rd Mar 1104am → Brussels→ Cologne -> Munich 24th Mar 7.11amORoption 2 would be London 1104am → Belgium → Frankfurt → Munich 23rd 910pm (this option is search via the Rail planner app)Possible to advice if i still wish to choose the sleeper train option 1, how do i reserve my ticket ensuring is a sleeper train option on OEBB website or if ticket is only available to book from train station, will it be possible to book all route reservation from Spain train stations? Does the Eurail pass cover my ride from London to Europe as mentioned above? Since I wil

I am going to be traveling in Italy next May for my honeymoon and I’m trying to set up my itinerary. I didn’t have any problems finding train routes from Rome to Florence but after we leave Florence, we plan to go to Cinque Terre. However, no routes show up when searching trains from Florence to La Spezia on Eurail. Additionally, after we leave La Spezia, we will head to Venice but I couldn’t find any routes for that either from La Spezia to Venice. What should I do about these two train trips?
Hello everyone,So I’m planning a trip to the UK & Ireland with a friend between mid-August and mid-September (around 9th August - 8th September). I have a 2-month continuous pass and her a one-month pass. She prefers cities while I like both cities and nature. We have a rough itinerary but open to changes. Any advice for places to stay or scenic railways ? DAY 1 : Switzerland - Paris - London → TGV from Frasne (10€) and Eurostar (30€) London (3 nights) : we’ve already been but there are some exhibitions on our list York (1 night) Edinburgh (3 nights) : day trip to St. Andrews worth it ? Inverness (1 night) or 4 nights in Edinburgh and a long travel day to Kyle of Lochalsh (nothing against that) Kyle of Lochalsh Railway Portree (Isle of Skye) (1 night) : we’ll go back one day to explore more of that area (and other islands) by car. The main goals are the incredible railways in that area. Bus to Armadale (must be on a Friday, I checked with the tourist office), ferry to Mallaig and l
Hi everyone!In a few days I would like to cross the border between Sweden and Finland through Haparanda-Tornio. I have read on the Interrail website that this cannot be done by train therefore there is a bus connection included in the pass. I don't know if this is due to covid but it seems there is no bus crossing the border for the moment.On Maps it seems like the distance between Haparanda and Tornio train stations is about 1 hour walking distance. I don't mind doing that but I would like to be sure it is possible and my only option to join Finland up north.Has anyone done that recently and could help? :)Thanks in advance!Laura
I’m working on trying to decide what global pass to purchase but I can’t find applicable routes to create a potential itinerary. I’m starting out from Porto Portugal trying to get to Madrid Spain but all searches say “no trains available” although it appears to be a major route. What am I missing? Is it because I’m crossing country borders? My ultimate goal is to go from Portugal, to Madrid,Barcelona, Nice, Venice to Budapest. Any advice would be appreciated. Rob
Hello everyone!I´m planning an interrail trip with my sister in Norway right now and we have some questions regarding the trains. On the trip we would like to travel with the following trains, but we don´t know if they are included in the interrail pass, because they are also scenic routes: The trains are Jærbanen, Bergen railway, Dovrebanen and Nordlandsbanen. We can find the routes in the app, but it always says regional train, so we don´t know if they are those trains we wanna go with. Did anybody go with those trains and can tell us, if they are included in the pass? The support of interrail couldn´t really help us.I also have another questions. There are some train routes I can´t find in the app, but on the website of Norrtag. Since the interrail pass enables us to go with trains operated by Norrtag, I suppose we can go with any train of them, no matter if we can find it in interrail or not. Is that true? Thank you so much in advance!Best,Isabell 😊

I am Emma, from Italy and I’m planning my first Interrail journey.I would like to know every possible information since it is my first and solo trip!I’m planning to do this itinerary: (16 August, flight from home to) Berlin - Warsaw - Prague - Budapest - Sarajevo - Split (3 September, flight home) / planning to spend 2 nights in Berlin - 3 nights in Warsaw - 4 nights in Prague and Budapest - 2 nights in Sarajevo and 3 nights in Split.First of all I’d like to know if it is a wise choice to visit these cities in this order, (or I need some more).Next I wondered how many travel days do I need (I was thinking about 5 days), and how does the pass for the trains work.But if I should know something else do not hesitate telling me! :)Thanks!

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...
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.
Hi, I am returning to Thailand from London via Dieppe and Paris.I am trying to work out the route by train with the least changes because of my little dog.Dieppe - Saint Lazare or Dieppe - Gare de Nord? and then onto CDG T2 for my flight!Thank you!
