Hi everyone, Anyone who did a trip by train from Belgium to Turkey? I'm interested in doing this with my 10y old son this summer vacation. But I really have no clue where to start! Which route is recommended? And is the interrail pass for 7 days/month enough for this trip? How are the days counted? Thanks in advance! Hope to hear some tips 🖐
Hi! Dit jaar bestaat interrail 50 jaar. Veel mensen zullen gebruik gemaakt hebben van de ludieke 50% actie en dit jaar een interrail trip op de planning hebben staan. Maar, vast zijn er ook vaste interrail gangers ook naar hun verhalen en vakantieplannen ben ik heel benieuwd! Je kan contact opnemen via reactie(s) onder dit forum, of per mail op email@example.com Ik hoor het heel graag van jullie allemaal!
Hola!! Queremos ir de viaje a la zona de los Balcanes, pero si estoy en lo cierto, la línea de tren Zagreb-Sarajevo está cerrada indefinidamente.¿Alguien sabe si el bus (que es la alternativa) se puede coger con el Eurail Pass o habría que pagarlo a parte? Dado que el tren está cerrado.Muchas gracias!! :)
My son has a two month Eurail Pass with 15 train rides. We have friends in a ski town called VARS in the Alpes. I see that there is a train from Paris to Chorges. Can I get my son from Chorges to Mont Dauphin via bus? I think he can get a ride from Mont Dauphin to Vars from our friends but this seems the most efficient? Also, does the Eurail pass cover the TGV high speed train? In that case he can take that from Paris (Lyon)-Grenoble. I would then need to get him from Grenoble to Mont Dauphin where he could get picked up. So looking for the most efficient way to get my son from Paris-Vars. Cheers! Joe
hello all, I see that if I am to avoid any further reservation costs then I will need to travel at a slower pace and possible take a more senic route.I had planned down to Valence to be near the express train to Milan from Chambery, however I’m not wishing to spend much more money on reservations for the 5 of us!!!!!I had dreamt of a trip in a life time on the Brenina Express but it is become apparant that it may not be a dream for all the family so I am asking you if there is a route that could be of interest for kids that takes us from France into Itlay possibly going a little higher up to drop back down to Milan, then to the coast and back into France to take the nice to Paris train home. It is interesting how many variations the planner can provide with such a range of stops. Ideally I’m looking to brake the scenic journey into two parts with around 3-4hrs travel max. and apptempting to avoid the expense of city centre accoadation. Any suggests, ideas or shared past experience appr
I will be in Belgrade in mid July. I want to eventually make my way to Athens. I understand that the Hellas night train is not running as trains in Serbia are cancelled and there are no international border crossings in Greece. I am happy to end up taking a bus to another city and then the train from there, and more than happy to stop at other destinations on my way to Athens. I know once I am in Greece, I can simply take a train to Athens, but its the getting to Greece that's challenging.
Hello.I am planning to travel Ljubljana, Slovenia to Zagreb, Croatia, and then Zagreb to Sarajevo, Bosnia, and after to Belgrade, Serbia. However, I can't to find the itineraries among those cities.

Is there some email address where I can send a message with may detailed itinerary?RegaresCarlos

I live in the UK near Manchester. I’m originally from Zambia. I love travelling, especially seeing culture, way of life, local cuisine, nature, architecture. I have travelled to a few places in Europe, but now I have bought Interrail pass to explore more in Europe. I would to see France, Belgium, Austria, Hungary and either Bulgaria or Hungary. However I have no experience in train travel. I will appreciate any help with planning an itinerary for about a month to see these places. I will start on Eurostar train from London, go to France. This is where I need help to decide which cities to go to and what trains to use. Then onto Belgium and other countries and return back to London.I look forward to all help and will really appreciate. Thank you in advance
Hey all! I’m in love with traveling Europe via train instead of plane, but I have a trickier route for work this time!I want to travel from Berlin to Istanbul and back (preferably different routes), and I believe the train from Sofia to Istanbul is open again! Do you have any suggestions of routes to take, and any advice for this big a trip? (probably will stay in a couple of hostels on the way there and on the way back). Thanks!!
Hi!This summer I will be traveling with my boyfriend through Europe with our Interrail passes. We would love to go to Croatia and are planning our trip around this destination. Could you guys give me some advise about routes that would be nice to look at. We will ben traveling from the Netherlands. We are particularly looking in to night trains (with beds if it’s possible) because that will spare us some days. I find it really difficult to find routes with the Rail Planner app because it doesn’t seem to show the fastest routes or night trains. I also could not succeed in a reservation.Hope to hear from you!love,Fé
Have bought a 2 month pass and am planning to do a winter wonderland. Has anyone got experience of Norway/Sweden/Finland during Feb / Mar and what would your main recommendations be - would trying to do all three within 3 weeks be silly at that time of year ? Would it be better to settle with just Norway and Sweden ?Trying to organise myself, but am aware that timetables/reservations will not not yet be available. Does anyone know what time of year the Winter timetables get issued.
Hi travellers! I want to explore all Europe on my own pace. Going to many places from Spain to Norway, then down to Greece stopping aaaall the way down, to finally go back to Spain via Italy and France. To do this, I want to be free in terms of time, like for example, maybe one week I travel 6 days, and maybe in two weeks I travel 1 day.Global passes are not working for this, they have restrictions on time, so I was wondering... if I just buy a ticket from a city in Spain to a city in Norway, can I stop freely through the way? If not, how can I plan my own route with no rush on the number of times to take the train or the period of time I'd have to use my pass?Thanks for your help 😊💖
Hello been looking around the site and looks like ill get the Global Pass for 7 days. I will be spending a month in Europe. 1 week with family in France then 1 week in Spain( Madrid, Barcelona, San Sebsatian), then one week Italy (Rome, Florence,Venice) then back to france and I fly to Norway for a week,Main question are the high speed trains included in the pass since I would like the shortest travel times and wouldnt want to be stuck on a standard train.
Hi, my name is Lauren. I am very interested in the 30-Day last minute trip. I would be travelling solo hopefully from the middle of July to the middle of August. I was wondering if anyone has done this trip before and would have any insights on how the trip goes ie how long you are in each city, is there an itinerary for when the trains leave etc. Thank you.
Have prices for hotels in Amsterdam suddenly become very expensive? Trying to find reasonable accommodation for a family of 4 at the end June/start of July close to Centraal Stn. Prices much higher than other big coties including London and Paris! Any help appreciated.
Hi!We are two Spanish students that will be doing their interrail in Norway from the 6th to the 14th of July. We were wondering if we will see other interrailers over there at that time, we will go to Oslo, Aandalsnes, Bergen, and Vøringsfossen, among others 😁. We are open to meeting and traveling with new people hehe! If you are going to Norway also in some of the dates that we have we can see if we coincide at any point in our trips.
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?
