Hi everyone,Planning to continue my trip from Lake Como, Italy to Lugano, Switzerland. I have read that Eurail Italy Pass only valid at Chiasso in Switzerland. Just wondering :Do I need to change train, get off in Chaisso then get a ticket to Lugano..? What type of train should I board from Lake Como to Chiasso..? or I could just buy a one off ticket from Italiarail website for “no-hassle” whole journey from Lake Como to Lugano..? Can anyone provide links or information about routes that is covered by Eurail Italy Pass..? Do I always need to book reservation for travelling with all speed trains in Italy, given having Eurail Italy Pass..?Thank you in advance.
I found the next webpage: https://trenitalia.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/trains-europe/night-trains/trenhotel-internationalI would like to go from Hendaye to Coimbra, but I don’t find the train for it. Probably it has been cancelled. Does anyone know an another route possibility?Thank you!
Hey All!This is a late July timeframe, super flexible.I’m looking at a Sofia (Bulgaria) start (or Thessalinki Greece). Was curious about North Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, (pretty sure EUrail doesn't operate in Albania). I see that its hard-impossible to get into Serbia or Bosnia by train at the moment, and seeing similar situations for Kosovo, North Macedonia (unsure about Montenegro), so was just curious if any expert here knows for sure.Surfing Seat61 too long now (excellent site though) and I feel like I’m slowly losing my mind haha. Was thinking that since Bosnia and Serbia seem hard/impossible by train, maybe there is way to go Sofia to Skopje(North Macedonia) to Kosovo to Montenegro and then up through Croatia to Slovenia?If I can’t see these Balkan countries by train very easily, I think I’ll just have to put them on the future to-do list and at least try to see the north of the Balkan region by going across the top of Croatia towards Italy, which I b
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!
Hi all!This summer I'm planning to travel from Estonia (Tallinn) to Latvia (Riga) to Lithuania (Vilnius) and eventually to Poland (Bialystok/Warszawa). I am entering Tallinn from Stockholm with a boat. Since Eurail doens't support the railway sites for the Baltic states I went to the sites of these countries by myself. My understandings are that it is possible to go from Tallinn to Riga (via Valga), but when I am looking to see if its possible to go from Riga to Vilnius it seems to be trouble. This is mainly because the railway site of Lithuania doesn't seem to be working for me.It was my plan to go from Riga to Daugavpils, to switch trains en travel further to Vilnius. From Vilnius I wanted to go to Kaunas, to go to Bialystok and eventually travel to Warszawa. Here on the forum I am reading that travel from Estonia to Latvia isn't possible, however the railway sites of these countries (Elron and Pasazieru Vilciens) say that it is still possible. Via the route I mentioned above. I am w
Hello everyone!I´m planning an interrail trip with my sister in Norway right now and we have some questions regarding the trains. On the trip we would like to travel with the following trains, but we don´t know if they are included in the interrail pass, because they are also scenic routes: The trains are Jærbanen, Bergen railway, Dovrebanen and Nordlandsbanen. We can find the routes in the app, but it always says regional train, so we don´t know if they are those trains we wanna go with. Did anybody go with those trains and can tell us, if they are included in the pass? The support of interrail couldn´t really help us.I also have another questions. There are some train routes I can´t find in the app, but on the website of Norrtag. Since the interrail pass enables us to go with trains operated by Norrtag, I suppose we can go with any train of them, no matter if we can find it in interrail or not. Is that true? Thank you so much in advance!Best,Isabell 😊

We’ll be touring Southern Europe this upcoming summer, and one of the ‘hops’ is from Pula, Croatia into Italy.I’ve noticed there is (a rather costly, but effective) bus transportation from Pula, Croatia to Trieste, Italy (2 hours), but the train journey via Eurail seems much more complicated (several hops, 6 hours, etc).Is there an effective (short, less than 4 hours) way to get from Pula, Croatia to anywhere in Italy with the Eurail pass?Thank you so much in advance.
I often use the ÖBB map of sleeper services - which covers their own trains and some Euronight services, but notably misses SNCF and Trenitalia.I was searching online for a more comprehensive map, and found this - an interactive map of all the sleepers in Europe, including details on frequency, timing, operator. It’s a great piece of work.https://nachtzugkarte.de/en/I’m sure it will be a useful resource. Apologies if already posted somewhere.
I am getting a Eurail Global Pass and I am wanting to go from Holyhead Wales to Dublin Ireland. Of course it is a Ferry ride to get there. 1) Does the Eurail Global Pass cover this ferry boat ride?2) How do I enter a ferry in to the Trip Planner? When I enter the two cities and hit search it tells me "There is no train that matches my search"Thank you in advance
I want to take the train from Sundvall (Sweden) to Trondheim (Norway) via Storlien. I am planning on doing this in July.If I check the Rail Planner app I don't see this specific option. But if I check the Vy website (transport in Norway) it does give this option. Just not in July because that is too far in the future. Does this track still exits and does the train ride in July? And is it possibele to take this train with the Global Pass?Thank you!!
Hello, I wish to travel via Eurail Global Pass to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia from Poland. I saw on the Eurail website map that there are stations in Vilnius, Riga, and Estonia, but I cannot select these countries from the mobile app. Is it possible to train within these countries using my pass? Or not? Thank you so much for your help.
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
Hello, We are currently traveling to Timisoara. We wish to transport ourselves from Timisoara to Beograd on August 12th. I wanted to book ahead of time at GeaTours, starting emails a month ago but it was too early. They said I should only ask just before my travel date, but of course now that I have asked they are no seats left for the 12th. All this experience is quite frustrating. Do you know another bus company ? I am having a hard time finding solutions, it is also a shame the train has never been renovated :(I have found Simplicity using omio search engine, but the cost is aberrant (105€ for 2 people)… Also no BlaBlaCar available.
Hi,me and a friend are going on interrail in june / july for 6 weeks. We will visit the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary and Croatia. (more specifically; Amsterdam, Bruges, Bern, Como, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Ljubljana and Split) Should we book trains / hotels in advance; if so how long before? We would prefer to be able to book during the trip but we are skeptical about whether trains and hostels will be sold out as it is high season.Does anyone have experience that trains have been sold out or will there always be available trains every day?
Hey there, I really want to go interrailing solo this winter, but I'm pretty worried that not many people will go interrailing during this time. My plan is to start from Helsinki the first of December and travel from there back to Germany. Does someone of you have experience of interrailing in winter in Scandinavia, are there people to met in hostels? I'm really looking forward for your answers :)
I will be getting the TFW train from Holyhead to Cardiff in a couple of weeks on a 1st class Interrail. This particular train is the only TFW one that has an actual dining car according to their website - “Our first-class dining service and food bar service is currently only available on our Premier Service between Cardiff and Holyhead.”I understand that GWR are a good bet for a dining car on trains to London. It looks like their availability is limited this month - https://www.gwr.com/travelling-with-us/pullman-dining, but hopefully will be available when I plan on traveling.I think I heard somewhere that some UK carriers had dropped theirs in recent years, but I don’t know which ones still have them other than TFW and GWR. Does anyone know what routes north out of London have dining cars, or even which operators still have them in general?Thanks,David I see the title and the post don’t match, but I can’t change the title unfortunately.
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!
