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 !
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
Hello! I’m trying to make a reservation for the Bernina Express, but in the Eurail webpage (Benefits in Switzerland) it says that the reservation costs are 14CHF in summer and 10CHF in winter and when trying to buy the tickets directly at the RhB webpage and adding the Eurail Pass in “Reduction” while adding to cart, the reservation cost is 24 CHF… Does anyone know which is the mistake or how I can get the 10/14 CHF cost? I´m travelling in april. Thanks!
Hey,I am going on Interrail with my Global pass in two weeks and I want to start in Amsterdam moving on to France. I haven't planned something for France, so do you have some tips and places I can visit besides Paris & Marseille. I am more looking for small towns and scenic rides, maybe on the french coast
Hello community! 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!
Hello Crowd! At the beginning of February 2022 I would like to travel from Berlin to Istanbul. I have already seen that the train between Sofia and Istanbul is not running right now. Alternative is the bus. Do any of you have more detailed information if the train will run again in the near future? Or why there is nothing going on right now? I have planned to travel the following route: Berlin - Vienna - Budapest - Craiova - Vidin - Sofia - Istanbul Do you think this connection is cool? Have any of you ever traveled from Germany to Turkey and would like to share your experiences? Thanks!
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 All, I am travelling around Italy in April using the Eurail Pass.Is there a list of stations that are covered?Does the pass have limitations on which places you can stop?Is it only the major cities it can be used for?I am planning to visit a small town in the Alps (Chatillon), can i use the pass to get here? Paul.
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,Our plan was to do a trip through the Balkans as part of our Eurotrip. So far we have planned: Amsterdam - Berlin - Prague - Vienna - Venice - Ljubljana - Split - Zagreb. From Zagreb we want to go to Belgrade, Bar, Mostar and then end up in Greece. The last potential leg of our trip can’t seem to be planned through the app. Does anyone have any idea of why that is or how we could best plan this part? We are open to adjusting the itinerary if there is a better route. I look forward to reading your replies!

Hi,I'm trying to plan a trip through scandinavia by train. Now I see on the rail map that (with interrail?) I can't travel to a place like Narvik. When I enter this place in the travel planner I can travel to this station. Does anyone know how this works?Is the rail map not correct? Or does this destination perhaps not fall under interrail travel?

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.
