Travelling with an 11 year old autistic child
I am travelling from Australia in mid April with my 11 year old autistic son. We are travelling for 16 weeks through 11 countries starting in France. We wish to do a number of train journeys within each country not really big cities. We are visiting France, Spain, Morocco, portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, UK and Malta in that order.I have used the Traineline App and costed out just the main country journeys which exceeds theGlobal Pass however I'm struggling to work out the reservation cost associated with each eurail pass to see which is the best option. Our country dates are fixed but we have flexibility within each country so want to know if we can also use a Global pass to travel from say Porto to Lisbon as an example.Sorry for long question but the challenges are great for this journey.Thank you
Novata viaje verano 2023 Valencia-Paris_Estrasburgo_Luzern_Interlaken_zurich
Hola!Soy novata aquí. Tenemos mucha ilusión de hacer este viaje con nuestra hija este verano. Tenemos entre 10-15 días disponibles. Hemos pensado un Global Pass de 7 días. Os adjunto nuestra planificación:Salimos desde Valencia 30 o 31 Julio. Llegada a Paris. Primer problema: no encontramos trenes vía Barcelona. Ir vía Madrid supone más horas de viaje, no tiene sentido. Queremos llegar a Paris a media tarde. Podríamos ir a Barcelona el día 30/07 y salir el lunes 31/07 Barcelona 10:33h – Paris 17:18h. La reserva de asientos entiendo que debo hacerla a través de TGV. 4 noches en Paris.El billete Valencia Barcelona estaría dentro del Pass, o tengo que comprarlo aparte? Estaremos 4 noches en Paris.Siguiente parada del viaje, salida el Viernes 4 agosto. París - ESTRASBURGO. De 10:05h a 12:41h. Estaremos 1 noche.Al día siguiente, sábado 5 agosto, continuamos aventura: Estrasburgo-Lucerna. De 11:51h a 15:05h. Una noche, es sin reserva, con añadir el viaje al Pass, podemos subir al tren?Despu
global pass 10 días 2 meses
Hola, buen día! Mi esposa y yo deseamos realizar un viaje por Europa en sep. y oct. con los siguientes recorridos: Madrid a Santander (1), Santander a Burdeos (2), Burdeos a París (3), Bruselas a Amsterdam (4), Amsterdam a Bruselas (5), Munich a Venecia (6), Venecia a Milán (7), Milán Florencia (8), Florencia a Roma (9) Barcelona a Madrid (10)... Mi pregunta es, ¿todos estos viajes los podemos realizar con un global pass de 10 días en 2 meses, o alguno de los recorridos no entran en ese paquete? ¡Saludos y gracias por su próxima respuesta!
UK airport trains: incorrect information
The otherwise helpful information re rail (and tram/bus) links between cities and airports claims for access to/from London’s #1 airport at Heathrow that Elizabeth Line trains do not operate on Sundays.This is no longer correct. Thankfully (unless staff are on strike or there’s trackwork or an unplanned disruption) it’s become a seven day a week rail route.
Hiking in Norway
Hey,I'm currently planning an interrail trip in Scandinavia in March and I'd really like to go doing some hiking in Norway. Is there someone experienced with hiking in Norway, especially during winter-season (March). It would be perfect if the hiking spots could be reached by public transport and if a hostel would be near them. Thanks y'all for your help in advance! :)Lasse
1 night stopover between Milan and Naples
I am travelling from Milan to Naples and need to arrive at Naples airport by 11am therefore I am going to stop en route for 1 night. Where would be a good place to stop where it is relatively easy to get from train station to main part of town/city. Would like a picturesque stop so that I can spend the afternoon/evening soaking up the atmosphere so it is not a wasted stop.
Turkey + Greece
Hi all,I’ve sorted most of my trip down to Istanbul in April, but now planning the return. My idea is to head south to Izmir and Bodrum, then catch some ferries across to the islands and to Athens. It seems my global pass will be pretty redundant for this part (presumably until I get to Italy / out of Greece), unless I can use it for some ferry discounts…?My main question is, does anyone have any experience around this area and around this time, in terms of booking buses or ferries ahead (if that’s even possible), or is it chill to do it a couple of days before usually?I will probably come back after Greece via Sicily/Italy by train in case anyone has been that way and wants to share some inspiration or tips :)Many thanks in advance, as always.Paul
Is it possible to see any of the balkans somewhat conveniently?
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
Travel advice from the US
I will be traveling to Europe for three to four weeks beginning in Croatia. I want to see the most amount of countries during this time period. Any suggestions of travel routes/ duration of time spent in each city/country via the Eurail train are greatly appreciated, and happy traveling to those traveling! :) P.S: Two countries I would love to travel to in addition to Croatia are Switzerland and Austria. If you could squeeze that in, that would be amazing! :)
Eurail Italy Pass - Lake Como to Lugano
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.
Route ideas starting from UK
Hi! I was thinking of starting my Interrail Summer by doing a trip in May, fly to London, then some days in UK (Scotland and back), Eurostar to Brussels (I was in Paris last year, so a different route) and fly back after 8/9 days from Germany or Poland where I can get a cheap flight. Any thoughts on best places in Scotland / elsewhere in UK as absolutely must visit? Do you think 1st class is worth the money in UK?
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
Ticket Reservation Confusion (first time Eurailer)
Hello! I am trying to get from Austria to Venice in March. I found a direct route that states that I need to purchase a seat reservation from Villach Hbf to Venezia Santa Lucia but when I went to do so on my computer only a paper ticket is available. Since I would much prefer a mobile ticket I followed advice I saw on a separate forum and went to the Czech Rail website to see if I could purchase a seat reservation there. The confusing thing though is that when I found the exact same route for my journey it said, “no restrictions on the route.” I’m wholly unsure which information I should trust, could I even still use my eurail pass for this route if I don’t purchase a reservation since it’s from the eurail site itself that’s stating I need said reservation? I don’t know if opting for a paper ticket would be a safer option as I’m worried about it not arriving at my hostel in time.Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to read this. 💓
Travelling from Graz to Brescia
On Friday 17 Feb 2023 I want to travel using my global eurail pass if possible, from Graz to Brescia. If I search on google maps there are trains via Villach but no other train sites give this option-they only show the Flixbus. I’m happy to leave very early in the morning. Anyone know more?
"Proper" 1st class from Wales?
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.
Interrail in Norway
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 😊
