Hello, I am a high school student and I won a free trip from 1 to 30 days anywhere in Europe. I wonder if there is a direct route from Zagreb to Malaga or Madrid. if it doesn't exist how it works with the transfer, how often trains run and how with luggage and suitcases?
I am a 20 year old student and we are planning with few friends to travel through Europe with InterRail in July.We would like to take as less reservations as possible in order to be much more flexible.According to booking sites, youth hostels prices seem to be WAY more expensive than I thought. Approximately 30€ in some country…Do you know if those prices are the same on the spot and if it is possible to get several beds on the live day ?
Is the steam train worth it, or is this very touristic with entertainment (that’s not really what I’m looking for ;)But if it also can be done without the entertainment, and worth it, how can I add it in my mobile pass, if I search the route (Jesenice - Nova Gorica) it seems like regular trains only.Is it good to make a return trip in 1 day?thank you,
Hallo liebe Community,wir sind neu hier und auch noch nie mit interrail gereist.

So wie es sich darstellt kann manvon Bialystock nach Riga lediglich am Wochenende reisen? Kann das sein?Vielen Dank für Eure Unterstützung
Hello Community,with the recent discount I spontaneously bought an Interrail Global Pass for 1 Month. I have never interrailed before. But since I bought this pass, I spend a lot of time researching.I will start my Journey from Aachen, close to the German Border with the Netherlands/Belgium.Since my only window for travelling is September/October Scandinavia is not really an option for me. I feel like the days are too short, especially close to the polar circle.The destination I would like to travel the most is Spain/Portugal since I have not been there before. (I have been plenty of times in Italy and also a few times in the balkan).With my research I already know, that these countries are not ideal for Interrail. I am not on a very tight budget and due to the discount I already saved some money. So the extra cost for seat reservations are definitely okay for me and I can plan with that.What really puts me off, though, is the fact that reservations can't be made online. Since I like t
Hello! I am going from Sofia to Belgrade and then from Belgrade to Bratislava. No trains from Belgrade go to Bratislava though so I was thinking about going via Zagreb.On Serbia’s railway site there is an international connection listed but is the train to Zagreb currently running? I’m going there in two weeks.If anyone has insight on the Sofia to Belgrade train connection, it is also well appreciated.Thanks for your help!
Folks Just checking if there is an alternate way to get from Gothenburg to Oslo in July as I believe the line is closed from repairs over an extended period. I think there is an alternate bus service but not sure if it is covered by my pass. Any information greatly appreciated Norm
Hi all! My partner and I are planning a trip to Europe for about a month and a half this summer. We’re trying to figure out ticketing and making sure we get to the location we need to. I think our main confusion comes when having to find or book tickets for lines not necessarily linked to Eurail. Basically our plan is:Madrid→Barcelona→Nice→Milan→Florence→Riomaggiore→Rome (flying to) Split→Ljubljana→Venice→Interlaken→Frankfurt→Amsterdam→Brussels→Paris→LondonMost of these don’t seem to be issues but with finding certain trains like Barcelona to Nice we seemed to have uncertainty around the specifics of it all. Neither of us have have done everything like this so we are just trying to iron this out with having as few hiccups as possible. Looking for any valuable information, tips or advice anyone has!
Mobile Pass: Does Corridor trains like Salzburg - Kufstein counts as inbound-outbound for German residents?
Hi fellow interrailers,I’ve bought a 1 month continuous mobile pass and planning to take the trip from Vienna - Innsbruck. The trains goes through Germany without stopping for a small patch of the journey (Salzburg - Kufstein).I’ve seen some threads here mentioning this as just a corridor which won’t be counted as inbound/outbound journey in the home country. But, as I have a mobile pass, will it also consider this corridor exception? If not, what are the other option?I know I can take a different train to travel through Salzburg - Kufstein. Or even buy a ticket for this part of the journey to remain in the same train. But, other ideas would be appreciated.Thanks :)
Dear Interrail-CommunityI am currently traveling through Norway and Sweden, in detail today, April 11th from Oslo S to Gothenburg C and on Friday April 15th from Gothenburg C to Oslo S. On Friday there are no trains available from Gothenburg to Oslo. The train company does not provide any free alternatives, and they told me, even though I have an Interrail ticket, I will have to pay extra. Is there anything I can do about that, do you know anything? After talking to the customer service, where they told me they can‘t do anything about it, maybe somebody knows what possibilities there are.Thank you so much in advance!Best, Nina
Hello there, I am going on a trip in August in the UK with a friend. We are trying to plan our trip now, but we are kinda stuck. We are not sure if we should just do a daytrip to Glasgow or if we should spend at least one night there. If somebody can give us an advice that would be amazing. Our goal this summer is too see as much as we can and have a good time. We are the kind of people that enjoy strolling through an old town, visiting libraries or café‘s. Is Glasgow the right fit?If you have another idea of a place or a destination that amazed you I‘ld love to hear about it.Thank you very much in advance!
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.

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

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!
