Is it possibile to add new destinations when the pass is already activated?
HelloI have a Global Pass valid for 2 months.I just read on the website something that I don’t quite understand.I wanted to activate the pass next week and I thought I could later add as many trips/connections, new places to visit afterwards depending on where I’ll be and where I want to go next.Is that possible or is it mandatory to add all the travel details from the beginning before the activation of the Pass?Thank you for your help
Meet up in St Brieuc / Dinan / St Malo
Hello everybody!Its my first time posting in this forum and I’m not exactly sure id this is the right place for this stuff, but I’ll give it a try.I’m currently on a journey throughout france, and besides france probably being the worst country when you have no drivers license and are tied to trains, I’m enjoying my route so far.I’ll be in Betragne with stops in Saint Brieuc, Dinan & Saint-Malo from april 8 to april 17, and was wondering if there’s anyone who happens to be in the region too these days and might want to meet up for a coffee or anything?Its my fourth time traveling with Interrail, but until now I’ve always been alone everywhere I go and I might want to change that.Feel free to hit me up!Best wishes to all,Joan
The 2019 trip – a comparison to the historic Interrail in 1975 (2/2)
2019 Interrail trip to Europe Since my first Interrail in 1975 my love for Europe and train travel had never faded. I had repeated the experience on another six occasions. It had always been my intention to do another Interrail once I had retired and revisit places from the 1975 trip and some destinations of other past Interrail trips.. While my itinerary would include places where I had family holidays, it would also include new experiences. There were still a number of places I had not visited that were part of my school boy travel dream. Barcelona and the Matterhorn, to name a few. Of course, the world had changed in a significant way in comparison to 1975, and it would be fair to say I had changed as well- 64 not 20. One major change was of course the Internet. Also I had more resources now to invest in a more comfortable and longer Interrail in 2019. Preparation At home, in December 2018 when I started planning my 2019 trip I knew it was going to be vastly different to my experien

Advice on where to start
Hi all,I plan to activate my 3 month global pass on May 1st. I am based in the UK. Am I right in thinking I wont be able to use the global pass until I am in another country. I plan on starting my trip in Belgium so assume I would have to the eurostar or search for cheap flights closer to the time? On that note, does anybody have any tips on route planning. I have several places that I want to visit but struggling to work out the best possible route. Is there some sort of route planner available that will do this for me automatically? Thanks in advance

Nighttrain through the home country
I have a question regarding a night train. I would like to start from Germany with the Global Pass. My first destination is Prague. From there I would like to take the night train to Zurich. There are two options for this: The EN50466 of the CD via Austria or the EN40458 (Nightjet) of the ÖBB via Germany. Can I travel through Germany with the Global Pass without getting off (EN40458) or do I have to travel around Germany (EN50466)?
FYI - no discount anymore at Lux Express Bus in the Baltics
Hello,for our trip in April/May I tried to book the bus Talinn - Riga and Riga - Vilnius (since trains are not the most efficient way of travelling). On the partner deal page of Interrail it said a discount of 20% is applicable + a code is given. When this code didn’t give the result, I emailed to Lux. I got this answer: Hello!I would like to inform you that our company does not cooperate with Interrail, so unfortunately this discount is not available.Best regards,MartaLux Express Good to know for everyone.
When to book the NightJet
Hi. I want to book the nightjet from Paris to Salzburg for July but it isn't showing compartments and when I emailed they said I would just have to keep checking website for when the compartments go live. Anyone else had this before? Really worried about missing out and it messing up our whole plan for the holiday. Thanks
Interrailing Summer 2023
Hi all,New to this website, so sorry if this is not the right place for this.Myself and my partner are currently at beginning stages of planning an interrailing trip for June 2023. We’ll be in Barcelona at the start of the month - but ideally some of the other countries we’d like to visit are Croatia, Austria and Switzerland. Our rough plan at the moment is to fly from Barcelona to Budapest. Then take trains from Budapest to Split, then back up to Zagreb - onto Vienna and then Zurich. We are thinking of purchasing the 5 Day in 1 Month pass - hoping that this will cover us. We are just looking for general advice really. Does this route seem doable to people? Have people done anything similar? We are cautions that this will involve a lot of night trains - are these harder to reserve? Any tips or suggestions would be great :)
Train travel in Greece?
Hello guys, I am currently on my interrail trip in Italy and planning to go to Greece, but we all know of the terrible train accident that happened there a couple of days ago, and the railway strikes that followed afterwards. Now I'm doubting if it's smart to go to Greece at all. I can't find much about it on Internet. Is it sensible to go there with Interrail? What are the chances of a new strike (or even a new accident?)? Is it even possible to travel from Athens to the north again by train? Thanks in advance!
Advice for travelling between Beograd - Zagreb
Hi, I am looking for some advice on travelling between Beograd and Zagreb. I am aware the line is currently shut but is there any buses that run from Beograd/Novi Sad to a bordering town/city i.e. Osijek, Vinkovci? Also, has anyone had any recent experience of travelling between Sofia and Beograd? Looks like it can be done via Nis with the aid of a bus from Dimitrovgrad. Thanks for the help.
