Planning return trip to Naples from Brighton in October. Staying in Naples 10 days. Looked at standard return train fares and they seem to be 300£ plus. So is the Global Interrail Pass the way to go? I can get senior fare. Will I be able to use it on Eurostar and then the high speed rails in France/Italy (e.g Brighton - London - Paris - Turin - Naples) or another feasible itinerary?. Any advice would be appreciated. Robsk.
I am planning on taking a train from Venice, Italy, to Rijeka, Croatia, using a train that travels through Slovenia. Where/ how is the best place to get my passport stamped to say that I have left the Schengen area once I get to Croatia? And how do I get my passport stamped when I get to Croatia? I am not planning on going via an airports.
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
Germans goverment try to convince the Citizen of Germany to use more public transport. Because of that they started a quite unique offer. The “9€ Ticket” (per month) in the months June,July,August you can get for 9€ a ticket this is valid on all regionaltrains (no ICE,ECE,IC,EC,Flixtrain,Snälltoget), public bus services (no Flixbus,Pinkbus), trams, metro in 2nd class.You can use the 9€ticket for example for daytrips fromBerlin to Potsdam, explore Berlin with the touristic buslines 100,200,300 :) , have a nice ferry ride on the “Wansee” from Wansee to Kladow.Munich a daytrip to Dachau, Salzburg,Kufstein,Berchtesgarden,NeuSchwarnstein CastleAnd many many more destinations.For the Railfans here in this community just note that even some NarrowGauge Rails like the “Harzer Schmalspurbahnen” decided to accept the 9€ ticket.
Hi!I am planning to get a bus from Split (Croatia) to Podgorica (Montenegro) and then train from Podgorica to Belgrade (Serbia). As far as I know, it is the only international route by train to Serbia at the moment.Does anyone have experience how to cross the border to Romania/Hungary from Belgrade? I didn’t find any straigth bus.. I only need to cross the border(for example to Timisoara/Szeged) because in Romania and Hungary the train networks are better and it is easy to continue traveling with train to next destination.Any experiences?
Has anyone travelled through the balkans while interrailing recently? We had planned to travel from Venice to sanatori, this seemed possible when I entered the destinations in on the interrail rout planner. However when I look at the rail disruptions on the interrail website many of these routs are not in service anymore. Can anyone clarify or advise?
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.
Hello everyone. I spontaneously bought a 3 month pass for me and my husband. We will be starting in Birmingham, then getting the Euro tunnel to Paris probably, at the beginning of September. The rough plan is France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain and Portugal. We have 75 days remaining to be in the Schengen Area so Turkey seems a good place to be at some point after Greece. Or Croatia, Montenegro of Romania. I like a mixture of planning ahead with some spontaneity and like cities, food, sightseeing and some down time. I have a mobile pass (which after reading some of the comments on various community pages I am beginning to regret) but it is what it is. For those that are more familiar with rail travel in Europe, what would be a suggested 3 month trip? What would you not miss and what would you avoid?
Hi,We are looking to begin interrailing on the 4th July in Bucharest making our way through the Balkans to arrive at Slovenia.Ideally (open to alterations) we would take this route:Bucharest - Sofia Sofia - ThessalonikiThessaloniki - Belgrade (we are under the assumption that there is a direct night train for this route but not certain)The information does not seem to be readily available regarding these routes and are curious to find out whether there are any trains available completing these routes this summer?Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone.I have a global pass and planning on going to Istanbul (among others). It’s the beginning of the trip and I’d like to have that covered and make reservations so I’m not stuck in a foreign country I’ve never been in. But I’ve recently learned that you can only buy tickets at the station !! Which means that I would land in a country not knowing if I can get out of it (by the Sofia night train). Have you been in that situation ? Are there any way to contact the station and book the tickets ?Was the train full ? How did you manage that situation ?And if you took that train, how much was the fee to book a reservation ?
Hello! I'm fairly new here, so looking for some advice on a potential travel plan. Now I'm from India, and I plan to travel to Turkey, go to Seville, then London, and then head back to India. I was wondering if there was a direct train of sorts possible for the Turkey - Seville connection, or is there a cheaper was than the Eurail, or what the best way of doing the Europe/UK part of the trip is, since if nothing works out, I think flying if the only thing I can think of.
Hi, I bought a 2 month pass with my girlfriend and am currently planning a trip for the end of july/start of august. We have plans to travel from Amsterdam deep into eastern europe, currently looking at Croatia/Serbia/Bosnia Herzegovina and perhaps even North-macedonia and Bulgaria.All the way until Zagreb, the railway planner app seems to be able to find trains just fine.However, when i try to find trains from Zagreb to Beograd or from Beograd to Skopje, the app shows no results whatsoever. How come, and where should I find these trains then?
