Hello everyone!I’m planning my trip this August and I noticed that I could benefit from some ferry discounts to travel between Greece and Italy (30-100% off) on board Superfast and ANEK ferries. As I read in the site: “As a Pass holder you can get from 30% off (surcharges for port taxes and fuel apply) up to 100% off (if you have a Global Pass).” I have a 15days straight pass (2nd class) but when I tried to book the tickets I could only get a 30% discount… Note: I’m planning to travel from Ancona (Italy) to Patra (Greece) at 18th August.
Hey community :) I bought a ticket to Berlin a few months ago in order to visit Russia from Germany but then war happened etc. Now I’ve changed my trip to the following travel itinerary:Berlin to Thessaloniki (airplane, bought)Thessaloniki to Sofia (train? bus? Didn’t find much info, didn’t bought yet. HELP)Sofia to Istanbul (train? bus? what do you recommend?)Istanbul to Tirana (airplane, bought) Regarding the pending itinerary, what do you recommend? Thanks!
Over $800 paid for 2 first class global tickets and the first day we use them London kings cross to Edinburgh we get pushed from platform to platform looking for a train with available seats! We try to buy reservations at the ticket office and after waiting in line for 30 minutes we are told we cant buy reservations and get in a fight with the ticket clerk. All this time we are humping luggage and we are both over 70 and nobody seemed to know anything or care for our dilemma. On the return leg same thing, girl at info booth says go to platform 2 so we lug over there and wait 20 mins and the train comes in and it’s going north so lug back to info and told platform 8. We go there and the departure board says platform 2 and we hear an announcement to go to platform 2 so we lug back there and wait another 30 mins and a staff member comes walking down the platform telling everyone to go to platform 6. We lug there and the train is ready to leave so we get on and start looking for seats a
Evening all.I hope you are all well. I would like some advice and tips about using the global pass (specifically 3 month pass) for our travels around Europe.I have looked at various videos and reviews on YouTube regarding this way of travelling and most positive although, there are some that are negative and they do highlight some important issues.One guy was saying about reliability and frequency of trains in eastern Europe? can anyone confirm if this is the case please? Also apparently the train station names do not match with what is on the app so it can be a tad confusing according to the reviewers. Can someone who has travelled recently using the Interrail pass please advise on anything you think we should be aware of? We want to try plan in advanced as much as possible and to start our trip early-,mid next year and would appreciate all feedback, tips and advice.We understand that we have to make reservations in certain countries. Could someone please tell us what countries these
So I'm pretty confused as to why Oslo is poorly connected to neighbouring capitals Stockholm and Copenhagen. It's rare to see a direct train and it's usually like 1-3 connections in stations that close pretty early. (Why Gothenburg isn't a 24h station escapes me) Given that it's regular to see times 8-10h+ for a 450km journey is pretty crazy right? Finland's towns seem better connected than Norway's capital. Is there something I'm missing or is it just going to be a huge pain to get in and out of Norway? Or do they rely more on buses for these routes? Currently in Berlin making my way to Oslo. There's a direct to Copenhagen 06:38-13:36 from there it looks like wait a day untill 09:27- 17:51 Copenhagen/Gothenburg/Oslo. But surely there's a better option that doesn't include the colour ferry for 2000nok. Any help?
Hi, I’m currently in Munich and I’d like to make my way up to Sweden in a relaxed way over the course of a week. I was wondering about Munich - Vienna - Prague, but then I’m not sure where to go inbetween. Any ideas? Have been to a lot of cities so I’m also up for somewhere smaller.
Hi all, My wife and I are planning to go to Italy to celebrate some holiday's. At the end of the trip I meet a couple of friends in Palermo to have a guys weekend. My wife will most likely go back home from Rome.We want to see nature instead of cities. One of the places we want to visit are the Dolomites. Does anyone has any expierence on how to come there by train? When I look on the website of interrail I can only select large cities. So, I'm not quite sure of it is possible to go to the Dolomites by train. It might be that I need to search in a different way.In total we have 12 days together and then I have a couple of days with friends. So we are not only going to the Dolomites, but we were also thinking about the black forest in Germany. Tips on how the get there would also be helpfull. Thank you for all the responses!
My husband and I are traveling November December. We have a 15 day in 2 month 1st class global pass. We plan London - Paris - interlaken - Florence - Rome - Venice - Salzburg - Budapest - Prague ( or maybe Venice - Budapest - Salzburg - Prague) - Berlin - Amsterdam - Brussels/Brugge - London. We are planning on spending 2 nights in each place not including London. I know this is very quick so I ask if anyone has any suggestions on how we can save time on travel ie maybe overnight trains just keeping in mind that we have only 15 travel days. Thanks for your help.
Hi all,I am going to Italy for the first time in my life and I want to take train from Rome to Milan on the morning of 8 Oct. I have checked on thetrainline.com and I saw from the government website (http://scioperi.mit.gov.it/mit2/public/scioperi)There is a locale strike on 7 Oct 21.01 to 8 Oct 21.00 but it seems that I can still make reservation under Eurail.Does anyone know how would it affect the train schedule from Rome to Milan? Or it is meaning that train will not arrive Milan on 8 Oct? Thanks so much in advance as I really have not much idea about Italy’s transport system.
Hi,so as we have planned our tour, we are going to travel also from Lulea to Helsinky. We found a train Lulea → Haparanda and then Tornio Itainen → Helsinki. On a map we can see, that Haparanda station and Tornio Itainen station is about one hour walk? Does anybody performed this trip? Is it easy to cross the border? Or is it even possible? I was looking on different maps and it looks like it is pretty easy (e.g. as crossing the borders from Czechia to Slovakia, you just walk :D). So I am just making sure, that its pretty easy and you just walk and you are in Finland.Thanks for your help

Hi, I have a question about using a train from VY from Sweden to Norway. The following train is not shown in the Railplanner app, but it does appear on the Swedish (and Norwegian) railways site VY:R20 from Gothenburg to Oslo on 20.9.22 from 10:15 to 13:51https://www.vy.no/en /booking/customize?orderId=f6736cd8-50f4-4672-8072-057d2c1979bcIn the Railplanner App there are just trains with a change in Kil. These connections are not displayed to me on the VY website due to construction work.Can I use the train with an Interrail ticket or do I have to buy a extra ticket? Thanks for your help.
Hello everyone, I’m planning a family trip next year (2 adults, 2 children). We’re leaving from Manchester and hoping to get around Poland/Czech Rep/ Austria and back in 9-11 days. Does anyone have any advice on how close to Poland / Prague I can get on my first travel day? Has anyone done a similar trip? I’d like to take at least one sleeper train - can anyone recommend / advise on a sleeper train for any part of that journey? Looking forward to any input. Thanks all.
Hallo,Ik wil op 12 september vanaf Den Haag of Rotterdam naar Florence. Graag via Duitsland, wil dit doen met de pas. Als ik een pas van 4 dagen neem, dan zou ik vanaf grens Duitsland naar Florence moeten gaan . vanaf welke plek in Nederland zou ik dan moeten reizen?
As I'm planning my first Interrail, what do you suggest to budget for daily spendings (excluding accomodation)? I'm visiting Western European cities (Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin etc...) and I came to know that many museums and attractions are free, so food is basically the only concern and I'm willing to relay on supermarket food cooked in the hostel kitchen rather than restaurants. I was thinking to budget 30€ per day, but I found many videos telling that they spent a lot less per day excluding eating out.I'm interested about this topic because I have a budget of 1300€ and I'm wandering if it's possible to visit 7 cities in 21 days instead of the 6 in 18 days I was thinking about (Paris, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Berlin, Prague, Vienna), maybe adding Budapest to the journey. What do you think?
Hello everybody :-)I am looking for someone who wants to answer a few questions about his or her interrail trip. I write for the German women magazine “Lisa” as a journalist and therefore I want to write an article about “50 years of Interrail” with the personal experiences of one or two people. Maybe you could help me? That would be really great!Thank you so far and kind regards,Tabea
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.
