Hey everyone :)I’m someone who loves train journeys, but (shockingly) haven’t yet done any Interrailing as yet… I’m hoping to change that this year.My plan is to travel for 2-3 months from this coming April.I’ll also be working, and so I plan to have one or two “main bases” in that time, with the view to taking rail trips on the weekends. So, for example, I might stay for 1.5 months in two different cities, but whilst staying in those cities make time for day-trips or overnighters on the weekend.I’ve started my research through this website and forum, and eaglerly awaiting the release of the latest edition of Europe by Rail.In the meantime, though, I would love to hear about your favourite routes in Europe, for those who have done longer Interrailing stints in Europe… feel free to chip in or share things as you see fit 😊 🚂Jas
Hello!I am searching for a route between Berlin and Split. Right now, I have 2 options: by Flixbus from Zagreb to Split, or with a nightboat from Ancona to Split. Both are not fully covered by the global pass. What is the best way to travel to Split? (I think by boat, but the journey to the boat isn't pleasant in my opinion)Thanks!
Hi, I was wondering how I get to certain landmarks, activities etc that are not reachable by train. Let’s say that if I stay at a certain hostel somewhere, and an activity is 1 hour away, how would I get there? I assume bus is the common answer, do I just buy a ticket in the bus or are there certain bus companies that are covered by interrail? Thank you, David
Hi! My friends and I this summer are planning to travel for 3 weeks crossing Europe, starting from our country (Italy) we want to reach our travel destination: Lofoten. We are scouts so even if we’ll probably bring with us a tend, especially in big cities we’ll probably have to book some hostels.We’ve never undertaken an experience like that, so we’re really excited.I’ve lot of questions and I hope you can help me:1) We planned to stay only one day in each city, in such a way that we can reach our destination and still have 1 week to come back here in Italy. What do you think? Could it be a good idea or should we reduce the amount of destinations?2) How much time before our departure (which is set to the 18th of july) shall we book trains and hostels?3) Trains in norway are covered by the Interrail pass? We’ve planned to do first the Oslo-Trondheim route and then going from Trondheim to Bodoe, where we’ll take the ferry to reach Lofoten (all this in 3 days).If you also have general sug
I was wondering if anyone could leave some suggestions of free activities/experiences, as well as things that I’d spend a bit more money on in Europe. I’m not sure what route I want to do yet so leave suggestions for anywhere you’ve been that you think is worthwhile seeing/doing. I’m thinking of getting the 7 days in 1 month pass.
I would like to hear your advice on my travel plans.Hope to be able to make this trip in the months of May, June or at the latest in September 2022. Have a global pass, 4 days within 1 month. My journey will start in Belgium, my home country.There I will take the train in Essene, Liedekerke or Denderleeuw. I want to use the Nightjet connections to Italy, and would like to travel to Rome because this is the southernmost connection that can be reached by Nightjet.From Brussels I would then travel to Munich with ICE. From Munich I then take the Nightjet to Rome, arriving in Rome at 9.10 am. Hopefully if the Nightjet isn't delayed, I'd like to take a trip to Naples too. This would only be 1 hour away by train.I would also like to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa (if there is enough time)The 3rd day that we use the interrail pass, we have to arrive in the village, La Cure, in Switzerland. My brother comes to pick us up there by car, he lives in Les Moussieres, France.It is a 30 minute car ride
Hi,I am planning a scandinavia trip for 1 or 2 months sometime in April-June on my own and would like to spend a few days in Ylläs. Is it correct that there is absolutely no “direct” bus connection or so between Kolari and Gällivare? So the only public transport way is to make the huge detour via Lulea etc? Do you know where I could ask for a rideshare if maybe someone is travelling by car? Or how high do you think the chances are that I will meet someone along the way that is planning this route? :D
Hello! I am considering buying Eurail passes for our upcoming trip to Europe. Will be starting in Amsterdam (boarding a river cruise there), ending the cruise in Basel Switzerland, then going to Italy. Just wanting to get any insight on ease of use, if most cities accept these for local travel as well as city to city travel. I am thinking about Basel to Zurich then to the Bernina Express into Italy (Milan, Lake Como, Cinque Terre, Brescia). Would appreciate any assistance or tips from those of you who have made these treks before. Many thanks in advance.
Hello there,My boyfriend and me are planning an interrail through Scandinavia this summer. But we are kinda lost in all the amazing plazes. So we were wondering if you guys have any suggestions for places to visit in Denmark, Sweden and Norway? We would love to go a bit more to the north. We are from the Netherlands and plan to take the boat back home from Kristiansand (Norway)Also other tips about accomondation, must do's or traveling are welcome! Thank you in Advance!Maaike
I am looking at purchasing the Eurail pass for Switzerland, but I cannot find any information on whether or not the pass will allow travel on the various scenic trains (Bernina Express, Glacier Express, Golden Pass). I do see that it allows transit to and from Luzern - Interlaken - Montreux - Zermatt, but are these on the scenic trains, or regional trains. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Hello there, This summer we want to travel from the Netherlands to Paris, and then to Italy. I'm traveling with a child, so I don't want the routes to be too long. We don't want to be in the train for like 6 hours. So I planned this: Breda - Brussels or directly to Paris. Paris - Lyon.Then I get stuck. I want to travel to Italy then. If not to far out of the direction we would like to see Marseille and Nice and Monte Carlo. But if that is a route that takes much more time then we would like to go straight to Italy. But if I use the app interrail app I get incredibly long train times, either from Lyon or from Nice. Is that correct? What is the fastest route to get to Italy? If going through Lyon/Marseille/Nice takes so long, then maybe it's better to go from Paris straight to Italy? Or maybe a sleeping train? I can’t see how I can find this in the interrail app. I hope someone can give me advice on this.And them in Italy we want to see: Milan, Venice, Rome, Toscane and maybe Florence.
Hi, I start an Europe tour with interrailsince December until February 2022…and because the bad connections between trains and the absence of informations and itinerary in the application interrail, I already payed 3 bus to cross the Baltic country…did you know how can I contact interail customer services and request for a refund ? I already payed 500€ and now I’m paying the supplement for all the bus..it’s not fear !!!thank you
Dear fellow travellers,for this year, I plan on travelling through the Netherlands and visit some friends along the way.I have a few questions:Is it even worth it to get an Interrail Pass for this (I didn’t see a specific country pass anyway)? If I’d decided to visit other countries as well at this trip, which ones would you combine with this trip? Regardless of the first two questions, what should I definitely see in the Netherlands?Kind regards,Marts

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 am currently planning an interrail trip for August! I was just wanting a little bit of advice about how long to spend in each place? For example, I was going to buy the 10 travel day pass and travel for 3 weeks, I have 10 places down to visit, averaging 2 days in each place (so travelling to next place every other morning/evening) Here is my preliminary itiniary, does anyone know if this will be doable at all? Or is it worth taking out one place or so just to lengthen it out slightly? Just don't want to be stressed moving lots from one place to another! Thank you so much!
Survey: 50 years of Interrail - a link between Europe? Hello, I'm Carolin, a student from Germany and I'm currently writing a thesis for my Abitur on the subject of "50 years of Interrail".In this context, I am interested how the experiences of the Interrail travelers have influenced the "European thought".For this I have prepared a small survey made up of 5 simple questions. The survey is anonymous, takes a maximum of 3 minutes, and takes place on the survey platform "SurveyMonkey"; data protection is guaranteed. Anyone who has already made an Interrail trip can take part.I would be very happy if you would support me by participating! And here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.de/r/N3V8L7H
Hey,I'm not sure, how it's possible to get new lines into the interrail pass. I was researching this year about overtourism/ public transportation in Iceland. There's the idea to add bus services in the pass, like between France and Spain, to stop the high usage of cars by tourists there. How can we support to bring the long-distance bus company and Eurail together in a dialog? Greetingsnnf635
