Advice for 2023 Interrail Route
Hi all,I thought I’d share my prospective interrail plan to get a better understanding of everything, as it is my first time travelling and I hope that I can get some advice or recommendations on the regions and cities I am visiting. (for context, I am 22 years old, travelling with another person, want to use hostels and trains as much as possible and lastly I have the 2 month global pass)I start at Edinburgh, then to London for the Eurostar to Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, Budapest, Bucharest, Varna, Sofia, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Mostar, Split, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Munich, then the Golden Pass in Switzerland. I may want to go further but that depends on money etc.I’d like as much advice and opinion on these areas as possible - it keeps my wanderlust fuelled during the dark cold months of the Scottish winter.Thanks! 😁
Route help please
My teenage daughter and I are going to travel for a couple of weeks in July. We are starting in Paris and then on to Berlin. We are keen to visit Budapest, visit Florence or Verona then finish in Naples where we are staying in Sorrento for a week. What route should we follow to Budapest from Germany and stay for a few nights. I would love to go to Bavaria or travel similarly scenic routes on the train. I have a teenager who needs to be interested though. Also not Prague as we have been there.
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?
Timetable issues? Helsinki to Stockholm ferry is not shown
Good morning,The Rail Planner app no longer displays ferry trips. Is this normal?The route was included in 2022 but no in 2023 it seems… For example, the Helsinki-Stockohlm route is no longer available. Nor does the Rovaniemi-Stockolm route because the ferry between Turku and Stockholm no longer exists in 2023.Can you please give me more details?Do you know why I have this problem when I have updated the application 2 days ago ? Thank you in advance for your response Best regards Benjamin
travel to greece
Bonjour,Avec mon amie, nous nous apprêtons à aller en Grèce pour 5 mois. Pour des raison écologiques, nous voulons y aller en train. J'ai déjà utilisé interrail pour un voyage il y a quelques années, c'est donc tout naturellement que j'ai pensé le réutiliser pour ce voyage. Cependant, nous ne souhaitons pas prendre plus d'une semaine pour aller jusqu'en Grèce, existe-t-il un pass qui nous permettrait d'aller en Grèce en 3 jours de voyage ? Et quel est sont prix ?Merci d'avance,Noémie
nightjet train from Amsterdam to Zurich with bikes
I am trying to book tickets from Amsterdam to Zurich with bicycles, it doesn’t seem to be available on ANY date, is this something that is no longer possible does anyone know? The OBB website does not suggest it has stopped, yet I can’t believe every date for 6 months is fully booked! Have they blocked this option?
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. 💓
Travel in Spain without reservations
I’m wanting to travel Spain but where I want to go using the interrail app it says there is no route (I’m on the ‘no reservations needed’ option- as I don’t want to pay extra for reservations). Are there alternative options for travelling Spain which I can go between, like in country trains or flix bus (these don’t seem to take the route I’d like either). Ideally I’d like to do Malaga- Seville- Madrid- Valencia- Barcelona (any suggested stops in between these I’d be happy to do too) Thanks :)
Travel tips for mountain lovers
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.

Southeastern Europe travel problems
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
Interesting offers to combine with Interrail
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)

Travelling from Ankara to Izmir
Hello, my girlfriend and I are planning a trip of 2 months through Turkey, Greece and Italy. We plan to start our trip in Istanbul and travel through Turkey with an Interrail Global Pass. After staying in Istanbul we want to go to Ankara and from there we are planning to travel to Izmir. But we can't figure out if Interrail allows us to travel from Ankara to Izmir by train using our Global Pass. According to interrail.eu you can travel from Ankara to Izmir making use of the night train which will take 15 hours and 20 minutes. But when I try to find the route in the Rail Planner app on my phone, it says "We couldn't find any stations matching Izmir in our timetable". Does that mean that there is no possibility to travel from Ankara to Izmir by train using Interrail? Or is there an alternative?
