I have paid for legs of our trip with necessary reservations but they don’t show up in the planner. It says that there aren’t any reservations. How do I find them? Can you add all the different legs of our travel so that they are on the app? I paid for first class tickets but it seems like we won’t always be able to travel first class so should I change it to second class? I didn’t know that there would be so many additional fees to reserve on top of the eurail pass.
One-Country-Pass Sweden: Train to and from Oslo included..?
Hello fellow travelers. I am currently planning a trip through (mostly) Sweden with a friend. I want to travel the following route: Copenhagen (Airport) - Malmo - Gotenborg - Oslo - Orebro - Uppsala - StockholmNow I am not sure if I need to buy a Global pass or if the one-country pass for Sweden suffices? I am questioning due to the statement on:https://www.eurail.com/en/get-inspired/top-destinations/sweden-train, where it says that trains to Copenhagen and Oslo would be included - but I really can’t find any more information on this anywhere on the internet. Do you have more information/experiences by chance..?
Train travel in Europe
Hi Community Members,New to the community. Questions:Using 15 days in 2 months Eurail Global Pass, following queries:Florence to Rome before noon; then Rome to Rome Airport in the afternoon. Two trips same day - using one pass day or two pass days? Are reservation fees refundable? Is a reservation linked to a specific train? What happened you need to take a different train, can you transfer the reservation to another train?Sorry to the silly questions.
How to book for train (seat reservation) from Vilnius (Lithuania) to Krakow (Poland) (april ’23)
April/May we will travel through Europe. One of the routes we are planning to do is Vilnius to Krakow. I’m figuring out how to book a seat reservation for this train. (for April 25 – connection: Depart 12.10 Vilnius (IC 143), 1 transfer in Mockova Arrival 23.39 in Krakow) We do have a 2 month pass so remarks about taking a bus instead are not very relevant.(although for Talinn-Riga and Riga-Vilnius we will take the bus) There is a daily connection leaving 12.10 and arriving 23.37 with 1 change in Mockava (LT). See seat61 whichs is trusthworthy and valuable info. https://www.seat61.com/trains-and-routes/warsaw-to-vilnius-by-train.htm He also indicates tickets can be booked 30 days in advance. I checked the ltglink website and this is correct. (I found out when booking online a ticket for this train you cannot choose Interrail as a discount so I think a seat reservation through the Lithuanian website isn’t possible) To check how to book I used several dates in the oncoming 4 weeks so I k
Interrailing in July 2023 as a 17 year old.
Hi All, I know there are a few threads on here about 17 year olds inter railing and in particular staying in shared hostels. I am reposting hoping that there may be some new information out there. I am 17 and hope to interrail in Europe in July 2023 with my 18 year old friend. We have already has a positive hostel dorm experience in Valencia (April 2023) where a letter from my parents was sufficient. I am hoping some community members may have some advice or know of the best places for 17 year olds to visit, where shared Hostelling is allowed. Thanks in anticpation.

Advice for scenic routes in UK, Scotland, maybe Wales
We are making plans to travel through the UK and Scotland for about 12-14 days. Are there any particular scenic routes that are recommended? We'll start in London and part from travelling on beautiful routes we wish to visit Liverpool, Edinburgh and perhaps Glasgow.Any help will be appreciated!
Is it possible to get off at a stop that is not the destination
Is it possible to get off at a stop that is not the destination?ex: I bought an “reservation required ticket” for Padova - Munich.If I wanted to get off in Salisbury to spend a few hours there and then take a train to Munich, which does not require mandatory reservations, could I do it? Obviously all in the same day, we are talking about 4/5h.
Does Eurail Global pass really include the Heathrow Express?
My answer to this is no, despite it being advertised in the Eurail planner. After a long flight from Australia, trying to activate our mobile pass for the first time, the train attendant tells us it isnt valid...because Heathrow Express isnt part of Network Rail (the UK rail consortium that combines all the tracks). Im aware of this, and I was happy that the Heathrow Express was listed as being part of the Eurail pass. But no, the ticket lady said it wasnt part of the pass and that they had tried to explain to Eurail many times that they werent involved in the scheme but they kept having travellers come up to them (like I did) showing them the Eurail Planner rules/inclusions and expecting to be able to use it. Can anyone else confirm if it really is part of the pass or if it isnt and Eurail are just false advertising?
change of inbound/outbound
Hi,this is rather urgent as I’m travelling home TOMORROW MORNIG ahh!I might have made a mistake in the beginning of my jourey.My outbound was supposed to be from Berlin to France Poitiers, but I split the journey into two days and spent the night in stuttgart. The first trip was used as outbound too even though I didnt pass the border the first day.I didnt understand there was such a rule.Now I cannot add my inbound journey for tomorrow on my mobile pass.Do I have any chance to change that?
Interrail - Eurostar
Hi thereNew to interrail and slightly baffled by the whole thing! My partner and i have 4-day passes. We want to book London St Pancras to Brussels. Have found train we want via interrail.eu; this is linked to our pass details etc. I get to the ‘payment’ stage and still cannot see which seats we’ll be assigned. Is this because there are only a certain number of pass-holder seats available, and you are just assigned whichever seats there are? I just find it strange I cannot see a seating plan or anything; maybe I’m looking in the wrong place? Do I just pay the 60 euros and then find out which seats we have?Apologies, this has probably been answered elsewhere, but I feel like I’m going round in circles! :)

Transfer to new phone.
Hello everyone,I have a question regarding the transfer of my interrail pass to a new phone. I have my interrail journey planned out for this summer (July) but have recently purchased a new phone. I want to set this phone up but I am afraid that I will not be able to backup/load my rail planner app with the right journey. Will I lose my data if I attempt transferring to a new phone? Does anyone have tips for setting up the app on a new phone without losing my interrail pass or having to manually redo the entire journey. Kind regards,Julian
One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection
Hi everyone.I have a 2 month eurail pass and am attempting to reserve seats for trains from Marseille to Avignon on the 13th of August and Avignon to Paris on the 14th. I don't mind what time the train leaves and hence have been attempting all different available trains throughout the days, however, every time I attempt to “proceed to payment” I get a notification stating “One of the legs of your journey is not available anymore. Please try searching for another connection”. I haven't has this issue with any of my other trains, so am unsure why this is occuring.Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Jamie
Traveling with a Eurail gobal pass
Hello!I'm heading to Europe this summer, my first solo and DIY trip in the region! I'm particularly heading to the ff areas in a span of 40 days:SPAIN - Barcelona (June 27- June 30)ITALY (flying in from Barcelona) - Rome, Florence, Venice (July 1 - July 11)SWITZERLAND - Geneva, Aigle, Montreux, Sion*, Lausanne*, Leysin* (July 11 - 16)CROATIA (flying in from Geneva) - Dubrovnik, Split, Plitvice, Zagreb (July 16 - July 21)AUSTRIA - Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck (July 21 - August 4)HUNGARY* - Budapest* (sometime between July 21 - August 4) *not yet sure if I'm heading to these destinations but good to have them as options I hope someone can provide clarification and other details to my following questions:(1) I couldn't count yet how frequent I need to take the train, and I prefer to be flexible. Is the Eurail global pass my best option? It's a bit pricey for me but would consider if I can make the most out of it (i.e. most number of trips, most convenient for traveling with a luggage).(2)
France Pass - regional train - seat reservation?
I’ve just bought a 3 day France only pass for myself and my son. I’ve booked Paris > Arles on TGV for the 1st day of my pass with a seat reservation of 24 euros which I was expecting. I’ve then gone to book a train Toulon > Marseilles (TER train - 1 hour) then Marseilles > Bordeaux (Intercité train - 6 hours) for the 2nd day of my pass. And it’s now saying I need a seat reservation of 49 euros for the Marseilles > Bordeaux section?? I thought regional trains didn’t require seat reservations? And this seems very expensive compared to my TGV reservation. Can anyone explain this? I feel a bit misled as all the information about the pass on the website says that you only need seat reservations for fast trains - TGV and sleepers..Hoping it’s an error….
Buying a ticket when I already have a reservation
I have a 7 day Eurail pass that I intend to use next month. I made reservations with Trenitalia for a trip from Milan to Venice. My plans have changed and I now want to travel 8 days by train. It would cost me less to pay for a ticket instead of using my Eurail pass between Milan and Venice, and use my pass on a more expensive trip. Can I keep my reservation and buy a ticket, or do I have to use the pass? The reservation says I’m using my pass.
