Hi, this is my first time travelling to Europe with my partner. He is currently a short term residence of Spain till end of April 202 & will return home. At the point of ordering the rail pass, should he still order the interrail pass? We are travelling from 21 Mar to 2 April 2022. My itinerary is like this: London to Munich 23rd March apparently based on the guide from Seat61.com I can do sleeper train option 1 from London 23rd Mar 1104am → Brussels→ Cologne -> Munich 24th Mar 7.11amORoption 2 would be London 1104am → Belgium → Frankfurt → Munich 23rd 910pm (this option is search via the Rail planner app)Possible to advice if i still wish to choose the sleeper train option 1, how do i reserve my ticket ensuring is a sleeper train option on OEBB website or if ticket is only available to book from train station, will it be possible to book all route reservation from Spain train stations? Does the Eurail pass cover my ride from London to Europe as mentioned above? Since I wil
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
Hi!I'm trying to plan my trip. Here's what I've come up with so far. But this route leaves out Sofia, Bucharest,Thessaloniki, Skopje and Krakow. But i think this is some of the best i can do in 30-40 days. This routes includes some planetickets near the end due to not so good railways. I have never travelled alone before and I really wanna experience travelling abit before i start on my 3 year bachelor lol. Do I need to search for visum? I am a EU resident so I dont think it’s mandatory? Are there many places to wash clothes? I'm gonna stay at hotels, I guess I can pay the cleaners to help me wash my clothes? I hope to get all my stuff inside a small carryon bag.I'm thinking to adjust the days when I go, as long as I am at Split at xx. date to catch the airplane to Belgrade, and then to Athens, so the only fixed number of nights will be at Belgrade and at Athens. So I'll have xx amount of days to distribute on the places inbetween Gdansk and Split.Any feedback or tips?Places to sleep:G
Hi All, I am travelling around Italy in April using the Eurail Pass.Is there a list of stations that are covered?Does the pass have limitations on which places you can stop?Is it only the major cities it can be used for?I am planning to visit a small town in the Alps (Chatillon), can i use the pass to get here? Paul.
If I want to get on the Bernina Express panoramic train from Tirano to St. Moritz (and/or vice versa), do I need a pass that covers Italy as well as Switzerland, or do they waive the requirement for Italy because its such a short stint in Italy (and because that’s what I want the answer to be, but I suspect it won’t be… hahaha).
I’m planning on travelling Europe at the end of May for 1 month on my own but not sure if this is doable with covid. I’ve had a look on the Re-open EU (europa.eu) but am still unsure. Does anyone know if you have to pay extra for tests/isolate- I’ve been double vaccinated. The route I have in mind is:Belgium(Brussels), Germany(Berlin), Poland(Warsaw), Czechia(Prague), Austria(Vienna), Slovakia(Bratislava), Hungary(Budapest), Croatia(Zagreb), (Potentially Slovenia), Switzerland(Bern), France(Paris).
Hi guys, second time interrailer here. Since I visited big cities during my first interrail experience, this time i want to stay more connected with nature and enjoy the various landscapes which Europe is full of. Anyone with suggestions for my travel plan, expecially regarding walks in the mountains in Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland or France (or any other country which is not too far from Italy)? Me and my friend will start the travel this september.
Hola buenas! Contacto con usted para pedir información sobre mi ruta seleccionada, ya que la que he elegido no aparece como tal en el mapa de Europa. Mi ruta empezaría acosté propio en avión desde Madrid a Estocolmo. Seguido de Estocolmo iríamos a Berlín con el interrail, pero en las rutas marcadas por el interrail, no hay una ruta como tal de Estocolmo a Berlín. De ahí quiero saber si hay algún problema o debemos de seleccionar otra opción. Seguido de Berlín vamos a Praga, otra que igual no aparece como ruta en el interrail. De Praga a Cracovia. De Cracovia a Budapest. Por último de Budapest a Nápoles. A donde quiero llegar es que no aparece la ruta como tal de un punto a otro. Abría algún problema en elegir esa ruta?.
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!
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!
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.
