Hey!I’m trying to plan my next years trip, I will probably start in April and go until early June to avoid the summer rush of travelers. I think I’ve got a couple of stops too many, but I’m not sure what more to remove. So I’d love feedback if there’s any cities I could remove without missing too much.I love unique tours and just drinking beer at new places haha. I feel like the highlight of my trip will be the Balkans, and not the western Europe. I’ve done two other interrails over a span of 40 days each trip, and I cant really do a lot of 1-2 night stops as its impossible for me to take the train/bus hangover lol. I’ve got 10 travel days and plan to use it for the western Europe and just pay for the bus/train in Balkan without the pass.If you guys think all of my stops are worth visiting, I might just skip Stockholm, Copenhagen, Hamburg and fly from Trondheim to Amsterdam and start there? And I can save these cities for a another time. My itenary so far isStart TrondheimStockholm 3 n
Bonjour, Quelqu'un peut-il me dire si je peux utiliser le pass France-Allemagne en France uniquement ?Aussi, si lorsque je réserve un aller-retour (en France), les services sont fiables (horaires des trains, est-ce-que je peux voyager avec ce pass etc ) Merci !!
Hello Eurorail community!I’m planning a 2 week impromptu trip starting Christmas through Jan 7, flying in/out of London from the US. Hoping to visit several countries by train as this will be first time in this part of world and I feel that would give me a great opportunity to see the beautiful countryside and meet people along the way . Thinking something like: London>France>Switzerland>Austria or Germany>Belgium>Amsterdam>London>HomeI know its ambitious but feel it's doable. I’m traveling solo, will stay at AirBnBs along the way, and mainly looking to experience the local culture, meet great people and have fun. I’m going through the most challenging time of my life but very optimistic about future and a big fan of staying present and following dreams and goals, Life is shortHoping to get any/all advice, recommendations from this experienced community, such as:-Do I need to make advanced train reservations for each stop? I hoped to keep my options open but unders
Hi all! This spring/summer I will finally travel by Interrail for the first time! Very enthousiastic about it, however while trying to check the actual timetable, the Interrail app only shows the trip from Copenhagen to Oslo containing two transfers (incl. Karlstad). That trip would take over 10hrs. In the previous topics and on other sites, I understood that it should be possible to travel from Copenhagen to Oslo with a single transfer in Goteburg, that would save almost 2hrs!Does anyone know more about this? Thanks in advance!
Question about changing trains to get to one destination and Tickets not covered by Eurail pass, is it worth it?
Hi everyone! I plan on visiting Spain, Italy, and Switzerland over 3 weeks. To my understanding, there are some stops in Switzerland, such as Interlaken which are not covered but we are given a discount when purchasing. Are these available for purchase through the app or website? Or would this have to be done in person. I’d like to figure out how much more I’d have to spend on transportation on top of the eurail pass if i decide to go this route.We plan on taking a train from Switzerland to Spain, I noticed there are multiple ticket options. Some say, “pass not valid” what does this mean exactly? To get to Spain, there are multiple train changes and some of the stops are valid, some require reservation, and some say pass not valid, Paris for example is not valid. I believe we would need to find a route that allows us to travel there with no issues. Has anyone had any difficulties with this?
We will be 3 days in Prague, Berlin, and Budapest and 2 days in Vienna. I haven’t purchased our Eurail passes yet - are there any day trips from any of these cities that are really worthwhile and might justify adding days to our Eurail passes?I look forward to your comments.
Hallo,Alld nodige treinreserveringen heb ik gemaakt van onze interrailreis naar Milaan en vervolgens door Italie. Overmorgen gaat de eerste dag in. Hoe zet ik de reisgegevens op de pas? De app vindt niet alle verbindingen. Moeten alle reisgrgevens kloppen per dag met de tijden erbij?Tussen Basel bbf en Milaan weten we namelijk nog niet welke verbinding we nemen. Volgens de community hoefde je dir verbinding niet te borken. We weten ook niet hoe laat we de trein vanuit Lugano nemfn. Moet ik dat toch noteren in de reisgrgevens op de digitake pas? Wordt dat gecontroleerd of geactiveerd ofzo?Alvast bedankt voor het antwoord.Vriendelijke gtoeten van Tineke
Hello, Why can’t i book a ticket for 1 stop on a night train?Let’s say there is a Budapest-Zurich NightTrain, but i only want to travel from Vienna to Salzburg. Train Schedule says “Enter only, no exiting allowed.” for several stops during the journey. Why is this? And in theory can i use this train if i have a daily ticket (or season ticket) between two destinations? (It’s hard to beleive i physically can not leave a train when it stops). Also the timetable aren’t showing me this possibility but when i look at live map there are a lot of trains on the go between these stops in the night. It’s only theoritical question so i’m not in need for any ticket like this, just interested.
Hello, I plan to go to Paris from Munich on Nov. 10, I saw a train offer by TGV which have to transfer in Stuttgart departure in Munich at 8:55 am. And I booked a reservation seat from Stuttgart, but now the train is no longer there on the timetable. (Both the leg from Munich to Stuttgart and the leg from Stuttgart to Paris.) And I haven’t add this trip to my journey before it disappeared. What can I do then? Should I cancel the previous one and rebook? Will the reservation fee refund if I do this?THANKS FOR ANSWERING!!
Good afternoon, I would like to know if there is any slower way that I can go from paris nord to Le Creux-Des-biches (Switzerland) without making any payment? What are the alternative ways instead of buying reservation seat on TGV and Eurostar. Thank you.
I am terribly confused by the eurail website. I expected to be able to put in a start location and a destination and it would show me all options of how to get to my destination including stops. Instead it just shows a map with a straight line which is not part of the rail routes. I expected it to be like google maps which shows exact route or even better, like San Francisco CA MUNI which shows you every form of transportation including length of time to get to your destination. Can someone please tell me if this feature exists and if so, where do I find it on the Eurail website? Or if you can recommend a better way to try to plan a 10 trip in France and Spain next summer. Thanks so much for any help!
Hellow fellow rail travellersLike every year, we can expect a timetable change around 10 December 2023. All the railway companies are working hard to get the new timetable for 2024. Which means we will slowly get some insights and announcements in new offers, and changes in offers the next weeks.If you’re planning for a big trip around Europe in ‘24, please note that information after 10 december 2023 is scarce. This will improve from medio october. Patience is key ;)In this topic we try to bundle the relevant news and information about changes in offers on routes that are traditionally interesting for the typical Interrailer or Eurailers (night trains, long distance new international connections, opening of new lines, touristically intersting routes...).So if you have any interesting updates, please share! It can only help travellers planning for ‘24 to know better what expect.For your information:It’s not very interesting to state that your daily commuter train is planned 5 min earli
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.
Hi there ! This is the first time I am using Interrail: I want to travel from Bratislava, Slovakia to Beograd, Serbia When trying to find the route in the app planner, I can’t find this tripDoes it mean my pass (5 days global) will not allow me to do this one? Or is there any trick so I can keep my plan as I was supposed to? I have the same issue for the next trip I had planned, which is from Beograde to Sofia, Bulgaria It seems Beograde is not available on the app planner, while the website shows the train station of the city as available Thanks for your help !Roman
Hello 🤗So I won a 15days global Ticket and now I am not sure where to go. Do y'all have some tips? Sweden, Norway and Denmark or Italy, Netherlands and France? I really do not know. Ireland and England would aswell be interesting. My journey would start and end in Cologne Germany.
Hi everyone!I am planning an interrail trip from roughly 20 July to 5 September 2024. I’m open to any destinations that sound interesting, but particularly keen to see Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Zurich and Bern. During the interrail period, I have fixed engagement that mean I’ll need to be in Paris for 02-04 August and Barcelona in the second half of August. I’m having some trouble designing the best route that could cover my fixed engagements while also taking me through the destinations I’m particularly keen to see. Any advice on route planning for this trip would be much appreciated! Thanks, David
Hi I'm soon travelling with our teenagers from Switzerland to London.We want to go by ferry. P&O has only three possibilities to go as foot passenger, it is risky to catch the last one.I thought to take a coach for Calais - Dover? Where do I find some coach companies? Has anyone a suggestion.Thanks!
Did you know that you get 50% discount on almost all lake constance public boat lines with your interrail/eurail pass?Many people don’t know, since it is published nowhere, except in the tariff:https://www.schiffe-am-bodensee.ch/images/befoerderungsbedingungen/Bodensee_Personentarif_2021_website.pdfIt can also be helpful to carry this pdf with you, in case the ticket seller don’t knows interrail/eurail!
Hi! I’m currently planning my summer holiday trip, in which I’m taking the train from Belgrade (Serbia) to Bar (Montenegro). From there I’d like to hop over to the other side of the Adriatic Sea into Italy. One small hiccup is that I can’t seem to find if there currently is a ferry service between Bar and Bari (or Brindisi). Does someone have inside knowledge?So far I’ve come across the website montenegrolines.net, on which I only found a pricing list in Montenegrin (https://www.montenegrolines.net/images/cjenovnik/cjenovnik--putnicki-bar-bari-dubrovnik-bari.pdf). No clue if this is accurate, let alone from this year. Help would be much appreciated!
