Hello! I plan to go in Spain with Interrail, and the organization is almost a nightmare.My departure’s train is from Brussel to Barcelona. I found it easily on the app, but impossible to make a reservation. On the interrail website, it is said that there is no information about the price and the remaining places. On the SNCB website, I can take any trains from Brussels after 8:00 AM but none before (they don’t appear). Those trains are not full : on the Thalys webiste, I can buy tickets for 50€ (it is cheap for the Thalys so really not full). I can see those trains on SNCB with a normal search, but not when I ook with an Interrail pass. I would like to travel from Barcelona to Valencia with EUROMED (16:10 to 18:50) but this train doesn’t exist on Interrail and the SNCB told me that I can’t include this train’s company on my pass. I would like to travel after from Madrid to Santiago de Compostella with ALVIA and from Santiago de Compostella to Zamora (also with ALVIA). Thoses trains do
I feel truly scammed here, not necessarily by Interrail, but by Renfe. Please state this clearly on the Interrail website for everyone to see before they buy an Interrail pass in order to travel in Spain. You need a reservation with your name for most trains in Spain. However, most of the time you can only get it if you go personally to a big-city-station, where you might have to pay up to 40€ to get a paper ticket that you can only use in paper form. No web option, no phone option. Like in the XIX century. If you’re not near a big city in Spain, you basically have no chance (unless you know someone who is willing to go to the station for you and then send you the paper ticket via snail mail). I can’t count the time, the money and the energy I have spent on this issue.
As from today it is possible to make Interrail/Eurail reservations for both seats, beds in sleeper and chouchette on the SJ Euronight between Stockholm and Hamburg Altona. For dates after the 10th of December, reservations can only be made at sj.se .According to the information I have reservations will not be possible through ÖBB as there are problems with the communication between the ÖBB and SJ reservation systems.
Hi, we just made a seat reservation for Thalys on 5/1 and want to change tot 6/1. It seems that this should be possible. Eurrail says response time can be up to 2 weeks. Is this really the case? In two weeks time the alternative seats are most likely already taken.
Hi all,I’m looking to make italian trains on various inland routes (milan-bologna milan-venice, bologna-rome, rome-milan) as well as international (Spiez - Milan), but for some reason I cannot book any at all. Having previously reserved on the milan-venice route, I can’t work out why now I can’t get any reservations. I played around with other routes and it still doesn’t work.
Hi,I have a Interrail GlobalPass and am currently in Austria. I would like to book the Budapest-Bucharest night journey but on the Hungarian site, despite the addition of the pass, the fares are much higher than expected, perhaps they contain the seat + the ticket and I can't find a way to separate them. On the Romanian site, it is impossible to put a form of discount/pass in the entry data. Finally, on the OBB site, the ticket is indicated as not available. Do I have to wait until I'm at the station to take these tickets? I also want to book the Bucharest-Sofia but on neither site is it possible to select these departure and arrival points. How should I do ? Finally, on the Sofia Istanbul, I guess it is only possible to pick it up at the station. Is it possible to still get a seat by booking at the last minute ? Thank you in advance,
There will be a new night train from Prague to Zürich. Information in German below.https://deutsch.radio.cz/tschechische-bahnen-lancieren-nachtzug-marke-neue-verbindung-durch-deutschland-8765176?fbclid=IwAR1WZd6xG3RoC8tAZsLIqGDpDgOPewB0TO8sQ2kzXhEkjDWWMtE_hzzTvyM
I have a question about planning the trip from Roma to Paris and London to Berlin. there are the long transfer time. Can I stay overnight in the station? For example, I will arrive at Paris at 23:17 from London and the next train will departure in 06:13 next day. Can I wait in the station overnight and there are any facilities I can take a rest in?
I have a train reservation for a train departing in about 10 hours that I received from the train station as the Rail Planner app instructed and I need to add the reservation to my pass on the rail planner mobile app but am unable to do so. Can someone please advise me on this? As an additional aside:Four ticket booth operators spent two hours fidgeting with my phone at the train station where I booked the aforementioned tickets and we’re unable to add the reservation to our journey for the travel day that had been activated. My wife and I have been traveling throughout Europe for the past month, we booked 3 reservations through the rail planner website and only one of the reservations added itself into our mobile passes the others we had to show the physical reservations and awkwardly explain to the train conductors that our travel days were activated but for some reason the reservations were not showing up on my phone. We were very fortunate to not have been fined during our journey
Hi all - looks like there are no seat reservations available from London to Paris on December 16th. We can go any time on December 16th, or any time after 5pm on December 15th. We have 2 Eurail global passes and have managed to reserve all other trains. Are there any alternative routes? I’m looking for other options than the $260 ticket from Eurostar :(
We have two 1st Class Global Eurail Passes and trying to make seat reservations. We are entering the correct Pass Cover Numbers, (E+8digits), on the Eurail website reservation site, BUT the Eurail website response on both is “Pass Cover Number doesn't look right”…..What is going on? The Pass Cover Numbers are correct...we double checked over and over.Eurail’s customer service is also rather useless…espcially that stupid bot.Is there any other way to reserve seats on TGV train (TGV9210) and THA train (THA9315) I am really finding these very expensive Eurail Passes to be very frustrating.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.ThanksJacqui
I know that Eurail timetable has a low frequency update rate, however, the timetable was updated 3 days ago and most of the trains from the planner doesn't match with trains from National Railway. Hence, I don't know if the planner is capturing trains that the National Railway doesn't or if the planner has trains that doesn't exist.
Hello. My train has been canceled today, December 2, between Barcelona and Paris. I had a link from Paris to Salzburg that I booked with interrail and that I won't be able to board because it's impossible for me to get to Paris. Can you tell me how I recover the amount of my reservation? Thanks.
Hi! During our journey accross Europe we will be taking the Bernina express from Chur to Tirano over the Alps. We will be arriving in Tirano the 29th of June, and are planning to travel to Milano from there. However, on both the Railplanner app and Trenord's (the operator) website there are no trains on this stretch at this date. On Trenords website the usual schedule with trains several times a day stops the 26th of June. After that there is only one connection which says "not purchasable". Is this simply because they have not yet updated their website with summer timetables? I cannot find any information about construction work on the line. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link to Trenord's website with the date I want to travel: [https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&destination=MILANO%20CENTRALE&from=20220629&fromstart=08:00&fromend=23:59](https://www.trenord.it/store/#/en/booking/step1?departure=TIRANO&de
I’d like to travel to Naples from Trieste. The best route is via Venice, and this shows up on the trenitalia website for the date I want but not on the eurail booking app. It does show up on the app for other days (same day of the week as I want to travel available in other weeks) so must be a valid route and definitely seems to be running and bookable on trenitalia so I don’t really understand the discrepancy. It’s march 29th we’re looking at so quite far ahead. Any explanations/advice welcome!
Hello, I'm the holder of 2 Eurail Pass. The reason why I made an inquiry is because of the seat reservation. I put those seats in my shopping basket to reserve the seats I want.If you enter the shopping basket, there is a button called 'checkout', and you press the button and enter 'Billing details' and 'contact details'. After that, I tried to proceed to the next step by pressing the button 'continue to traveler details', but the button did not work.To solve this problem, I tried various browsers on the computer, tried English, Korean, and Spanish on the Eurail homepage, reduced the number of seats in the shopping cart to two, and tried using my cell phone. But none of them worked.If anyone knows the answer to this question, please answer. Thank you.
Hi there community I would like to ask what is the best way to book train reserve seats1) Will mobile ticket code or qr code work when presenting it at the gate before entering the train for the following Portugal, Spain, Switzerland France and Italy2) I see that train inspector may require me to present the ticket physically on the countries above what should I do to show that I am a passenger 3) what can I do if the train station in the database is not available to book what is the best way to get tickets there Thanking you kindly 😊
I booked seat reservations for all of my travel plans of next weekend and never received confirmation of payment or the tickets but the money was taken out of my account. Where are my seat reservations?!!!!! At this pace of interrail induced mistakes I feel like flying Ryanair might not be so uncomfortable after all! 😡🤬😡😡😡
Hello everyone,I’d like to travel from the UK to Germany on 21 December by Interrail. Since I’ve been quite late, I have only been able to get a seat reservation to Amsterdam, not to Brussels. (Strange booking system logics...)The reservation is for the train leaving London St Pancras at 8:16. Since I want to continue on to Germany, changing in Brussels would save me a lot of time. Just to be sure: It should be possible to get off the train in Brussels at 11:12, rather than Amsterdam at 13:14, right?Thank you all in advance!Best,amadeu
Hi, I want to inform all in this community, that on Monday 28/11/2022 there could be a strike day at the Austrian federal railways ÖBB. The strike has to be confirmed, this can happen Sunday evening.So keep in mind that you can get effect by the strike or, if you can, plan to avoid Austria.
