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
Hey!Would be nice to make a collection of offers that can be well combined with an Interrail pass (leisure passes, museumpasses etc.). I am going to start with some interesting offers:Swiss Museum Pass, valid for one year, unlimited visits of museums and some castles (500+ attractions) for 166 CHF per year. If you have a Halffare-Card or GA even cheaper Dutch Museum Pass, valid for one year, when buying a preliminary one (direct in the museum) you can only visit 5 museums at once. Only after you get the plastic card you can visit unlimited one. Price 64,9 Euro + some administration fee for delivery (around 3 euro). They also deliver abroad. Buying online beforehand is only possible with a Dutch bank account. Around 400 museums can be visited for free after purchase. museumPASSmusées (Belgium): Price 59 euro, order online. Only available with address in Belgium, so you need to know someone in Belgium to whom you can send it. 200+ museums Museum-Pass-Musées (Switzerland, France, Germany)
So I’m relatively new here so please excuse any issues in the phrasing.I’ve booked a 15 travel days within 2 months interrail pass to go around Europe from the 29th April - 10th July with a friend, this is our first big trip and I'm doing most of the organising as I like to know exactly what I'm doing at all times (occupational hazard of being a perfectionist!) Our trip is taking us in a reverse C shape starting in Belgium and winding down through Prague and Vienna. But I’ve reached a bit of an impasse though when navigating travel through and around Croatia. The plan was to go from Lake Bled, Budapest, Zagreb & Split, Sofia and then down to Athens. I understand the trainlines are under construction but I'm struggling to find any reasonable route through this area that isn't 48 hours long! Is there any way I can reroute the current countries or maybe include another stop that would make the journey easier? I’m flexible on not going to Sofia but the others are pretty important to vi
Hello Crowd! At the beginning of February 2022 I would like to travel from Berlin to Istanbul. I have already seen that the train between Sofia and Istanbul is not running right now. Alternative is the bus. Do any of you have more detailed information if the train will run again in the near future? Or why there is nothing going on right now? I have planned to travel the following route: Berlin - Vienna - Budapest - Craiova - Vidin - Sofia - Istanbul Do you think this connection is cool? Have any of you ever traveled from Germany to Turkey and would like to share your experiences? Thanks!
I want to surprise my wife with like a 14-21 days trip across Europe and wherever we go to end up by train. We have never been on trains before like this, and would like to hit as many beautiful places in the alloted time, but still have time to enjoy them.No need for return trip to Lisbon, as we will be flying back to Canada after this train ride. Would love to hear some great ideas as beginners...I've heard people going as far east as Asia, some east then south, etc etc....we are open minded....thank you so much
Hello everyone,I’m planning my first Interrail trip next summer. I’m going to travel alone. It’s my first real trip abroad.I’m not sure which of my two planned tours is better for me.Trip 1:Copenhagen – Gothenburg – Oslo – Stockholm – HelsinkiTrip 2:Vienna – Ljubljana – Budapest – (Bratislava -) Prague – Warsaw – Krakow (Start ist in Germany)A trip to Scandinavia has been a dream of mine for a long time. But it is much more expensive than Eastern Europe. And I also want to see the Northern Lights once in my life, so maybe I should do this trip in another winter.Eastern Europe is much cheaper. Is it advisable to choose Eastern Europe as your first trip? Are there better alternatives for beginners?And another question: Would it be better to book the hostels in advance or is a spontaneous booking possible? I’m afraid the best hostels fully booked.
Hello everyoneI plan to go from western Europe to Turkey. The goal was to do it by train, which seemed possible according to the Eurail map.Fact is, today December 2021, it seems there are no more trains entering Turkey, nor Bulgaria.What are the current options to go as close to Turkey as possible by train ?Thank you :)
