According to NS International Interrail is not valid anymore (even with seat reservation) on the ICE from the Netherlands towards Germany between 6:00 and 16:00, during the summer months (17 June - 18 August). 🤐 During the period from 17 June to 18 August 2023, Eurail and Interrail travellers cannot use the ICE International trains towards Germany with departure times between 6am - 4pm from a station in the Netherlands. Even with a separate seat reservation, travel on these trains is not allowed for Eurail and Interrail travellers during the specified period.

Hi - My husband and I would like to take the nightjet with our Eurail Pass between Zurich and Berlin on Wed 27 July 2023. I am finding the nightjet web site choices confusing. When the time comes to create the reservation (180 days before the train ride) which option should I pick? We want a two-person accomodation, and do not wish to share with another person. Thanks! Kay
Hiya, we are planning to take the night jet from Venice to Munich on 31st May. I tried to book on Oebb but all the fare showing tickets not available. (I have tested with several dates) I also tried to book on Eurail reservations, there was no option of booking seats reservations either. Does the Venice to Munich nightjet open to Eurail pass holders? Thank you 🙂
Hi everyone, I want to book a nighttrain between Stockholm and Hamburg. According to the Interrail’s planner, it should be possible (from 39€) but after buying my pass, it seems that there is no day where it is available (always “Seat reservations required from NA”). I try on sj.se too but even when there are some place available, there is no discount with the Interrail pass. Does anyone know how it is possible to book these trains (my pass is useless otherwise) ? Thanks in advance
Hello all, I will be travelling using the Eurail global pass and inside the app it shows a timing that don’t match/show in the Eurail website. I’ll need to book seats reservations on the website and show a QR code to enter the train via the app. I’m just very confused so in this case, should i buy the seats reservations at the timing that’s shown on the website and appear in the train station without the QR code from the app (as the timing don’t match)? And if i do book the seats reservations on website and turn up on the timing that’s on the web, i don’t have the QR code to enter as the app don’t have the timing on the web, will this be alright to just show evidence of my seats reservation?
Hello everyone, my husband and I are doing a 3-month trip in Europe in April. Recently we tried to get our trip planned and have all the train rides booked and accommodations booked and confirmed. We bought the 1st class Eurail Global Pass continuous pass for 3 month. However, after I activated our passes, I saved some trips to our passes and turned on the button of one of the trips, and I went to “My Pass” section, clicked “show tickets”, I could see the ticket with a QR code, but couldn’t see any button for the payment options for the seat reservation fee. (it does show “seat reservations required with orange colour under the Journeys)Could anyone please advise me how to pay the seat reservation fee on the app to secure the seat as we need to book our accommodations based on the train times. Thank you in advance :)
I have booked seat reservations in advance Brussels to Paris on April 25 using the link to Belgian trains provided in this community and had no issue booking the seats, however the seat confirmation lists the train number as 9422 whereas the one I have in my journey is 9322.They are both Thalys, leaving Bruxelles-Midi and 10.13.I am wondering why the numbers are different, I can’t imagine 2 Thalys trains leaving at exactly the same time. If it is this same train will I have an issue with the ticket and seat reservation having different numbers?
Dear Eurail Community,I would like to ask, I have booked an OBB Nightjet reservation from Amsterdam to Innsbruck. As you can see the route is as below. The thing is, I am planning to hop on the nightjet train at Dusseldorf Hbf and not from Amsterdam Centraal.Is this okay? Will i be considered no show? Will my sleepers still exclusively booked for me or not? Thank you very much.Regards,Teguh Perdana Putra
I have booked a number of seat reservations for trains in Italy through OBB (many thanks to guidance on the process from those on this forum). One of the journeys is from Trieste to Brescia, involving a change of train at Padova. But the seat reservation says it is only valid as far as Venezia Mestre (the stop before Padova). Can anyone tell me why, and whether I should worry about it? Many thanks
I read on interrail.eu, ‘More often than not, you need to make advance reservations for trains in Spain’. Is this true? Is it usually not possible to travel in Spain without seat reservations? Is the Interrail app information reliable where this is concerned? How can I find Spanish trains where it is not necessary to have a seat reservation?
I’m trying to book a seat reservation on the nightjet from munich to venice for april 30th of this year. I believe seat reservations can be purchased 90 advance for the nightjet so today should have been the first day one would be able to make reservations, however there are no ticket prices loading. Was wondering if seat reservations really sold out that quickly or if you are just unable to make reservations yet.
Hello, I am Sarah.

Hi,I have purchased a group booking (10 people) for a TGV journey next week. I am worried as 1 person is now unable to come with us. They are happy to pay for their ticket but we will not/cannot remove 1 more person (as the group minimum is 10). My question is, will it be a problem if we turn up to board the train with only 9 people? Thanks for any help in advance
I booked and paid for reservations from Rome to Palermo for 13/4/23 on train 1955. After paying for the overnight train, ($265) for two people, we were assigned seats that appear to be not together. Seats 31 and 22. Is this correct so we are in sleeper cars together? Please assist me because I would hate to be in separate seating (not together) and not in sleeper car.Thank you!
Hi. We’re a family of four trying to book (2nd class) seat reservations for April. We’ve managed to get reservations via the eurail website for our Amsterdam to Bruges journey but the journey down to Lyon and then back up Paris is drawing blanks on all trains on all days. Surely not all of the pass holder allocations have booked already? Any advice or help very much appreciated as I am losing the plot trying to figure out how or where to get these reservations booked.
I would like to make seat reservations with our Eurail passes for the following train:July 16, Stuttgart 14:52 - Paris Est 18:05, ICE 9572. Seat reservations are required. The Rail planner app says that you can book this train only up to 90 days in advance, but tickets are already for sale at DB, for example. Can I book seats directly on the DB website or some other way? Thank you.
Please read first and if you still have questions start a own topic to keep this post as Informationpost as clean as possible. This post is made by @rvdborgt @AnnaB@runner.on.rails and myself. Planning/Timetables:Many of you will notice that the Railplanner of Eurail will have sometimes different times of the trains as other Websites/Apps. Or evenworse the railplanner wont show any train for your desired Route. The Railplanner of Eurail only shows the timetables that are shared by the Railcompanies unfortunately not all Railcompanies share these and even update it not frequently. The Result is that the Railplanner of Eurail is not always uptodate and because ofthat I and other experienced travelers recommend to use the Local Websites and Apps to check the times and even book the reservations with them (when possible).Below here finally the main words :D Hi if you are useing a Railpass there will be the point that a train needs a Reservation 🙂 Many of you ask where to get a reservatio
