Hey guys! Its my first time interrailing this summer. I wanted to ask if it is easily possible to travel between smaller villages by train and if those are also included in the interrail global pass? Do you have any tipps? And are other countries like Spain or France better or not?
I have an interrail global pass and from this part of the trip, I have to go from Slovenia to Thessaloniki. I am super flexible. I am basically looking for the cheap and awesome. My plan was passing through Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and end up in Greece but I don’t seem to find train connections there (I am starting to wonder why..).Interrail says that there are trains in those countries. I read somewhere that I have to do so through that country rail company. Other say it is better by bus (I prefer things that are included in the global pass as I already paid for it, but maybe that is the solution). My worry is that I cannot find anything because there is no train or that I go somewhere and moving from there to the next country is not possible by train. Does someone has a good suggestion?
Hello everyone,I have a reservation for a train from Copenhagen to Stockholm (7 July 21:27 - 8 July 05:46, change in Malmö), it has 1 change and that change is a night train. The problem is that the train isn’t shown on the eurail sites nor rail planner app. The closest train to these two trains are: 7 July 22:47 - 8 July 05:46. It also has one change and it arrives at the same time to Stockholm.Also the train doesn’t leave at the same time from Copenhagen, the train change is in Hassleholm and (especially the night trains) the train numbers don’t match (the Hassleholm one is RE 1112, NT 2 and the Malmö one is RE 1104, NT 4). I hope that it’s NT 4, if Tåg 4 on the seat reservation ticket means that it’s NT 4 then it should be that.Which one is right? Is this train even in the interrail pass or just the times are not updated again? I guess I don’t have to care about the regional trains because they don’t require a reservation, so I can take whichever one I want, but what about the night
Wie o wie kan mij helpen voor een mooie route naar Porto te bedenken. Ik heb nu t/m Bordeaux geboekt en dacht rond 28 juli vanuit Bordeaux naar San Sebastian te gaan, er is een snel trein van +/- 3 uur maar is op deze app niet te vinden. Wel een met enorme omweg van + 24 uur of zo. En dat is geen optie.Wat kan ik nu het beste doen?Ik vind het erg lastig en hoop dat er iemand is die mij verder op weg kan helpen naar eindbestemming Porto.Vriendelijke groet,Ada.
My husband and I have booked flights to Europe, we are arriving in Amsterdam and leaving from Paris. We are thinking we will get a 10 day flex pass on Eurail? Does this work on night trains? our thoughts are to book three nights in Amsterdam, then book as we go? We have also tentatively booked the seat reservations for the Glacier express in Switzerland. From Amsterdam we are thinking, Brussels? Or night train to Vienna then Vienna day train to Switzerland? From Switzerland then head over to the south of France? Possible stay somewhere around Nice? Then Boudreaux? suggestions are greatly appreciated! We are thinking we need reservations for some of these trains but not sure how we book ? On Eurail?thanks so muchlooking forward to hearing suggestions cheersMB
Hi everyone!Me and a friend are currently planning our Italy trip in September and we are a little confused regarding the trains. For some reason the Trenitalia website won’t show any trains from Palermo (Sicily) to Napoli in mid-September. The last time we checked, there were still trains going, but now the website claims, that there are no trains going after the 11th. But I can’t imagine, that there are simply no trains. Does anybody have an idea why that is? We already booked our hostels and everything, so it would be nice to know if we can leave Sicily via train, as we would have to change a big chunk of our plans, if there are no trains...Thank you in advance! :)

We want to travel (via France) in Spain and Portugal with the interrail-ticket in July and August.Do you have any tips for these countries?For example we found out that in France they only have limited capacities for interrailers and now we are way too late for reserving high-speed-trains in France, which is a big problem. If we would have known that earlier… So maybe there are similar things we should know about Spain and Portugal?E.g. is it true that we can reserve seats only at local train stations in Spain and Portugal? Is it possible that then they are sold out as well?Is it possible to explore also smaler towns and villages with the interrail-ticket in these countries or is the railroad network too bad? Are there maybe buses we are allowed to use?Thanks a lot for sharing your experience!

Hello everyone,I will start my Interrail Journey to Italy from Aachen on September 17. In Italy I will meet up with some friends in Pescara. From their, it will basically be Pescara → Rome → Naples → Catania → Palermo and then I will stay some time in Sicily and go back to Germany either by Night Trains or I will fly back to Germany. I need to be in Pescara at September 24 or earlier.Now I am quite unsure about how to get to Pescara in the best way. Thats why I need your advice about the itinerary to Pescara.I definitely want to save up some money for Rome and the South of Italy (even though but budget really is not very tight) and I do not want to stay very long in the north. But at least a few days and two locations should be between Aachen and Pescara, since I do not want any 12 hour train rides. I prefer to travel more slowly. I think a night in Switzerland is something I cannot get around, but I am afraid, that it will be really expensive.I like hiking a lot and the Alps in Genera

Hi all!This summer I'm planning to travel from Estonia (Tallinn) to Latvia (Riga) to Lithuania (Vilnius) and eventually to Poland (Bialystok/Warszawa). I am entering Tallinn from Stockholm with a boat. Since Eurail doens't support the railway sites for the Baltic states I went to the sites of these countries by myself. My understandings are that it is possible to go from Tallinn to Riga (via Valga), but when I am looking to see if its possible to go from Riga to Vilnius it seems to be trouble. This is mainly because the railway site of Lithuania doesn't seem to be working for me.It was my plan to go from Riga to Daugavpils, to switch trains en travel further to Vilnius. From Vilnius I wanted to go to Kaunas, to go to Bialystok and eventually travel to Warszawa. Here on the forum I am reading that travel from Estonia to Latvia isn't possible, however the railway sites of these countries (Elron and Pasazieru Vilciens) say that it is still possible. Via the route I mentioned above. I am w
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!
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! :)
