The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is to not use the Interrail/Eurail planner, at least not for planning exact train. This because the timetables are not online. 

 

Please read the advice from the experienced travellers in the community below. 

 

Here is some useful information from the experienced travellers in the Community regarding both planning, reservations and activation of pass and travel days. 

 Planning

The rail planner is normally not up to date, as it only is updated once a month, so to be sure of the time table you better check the timetable and availability on the websites of the national railways. The bigger national railways, like DB (Germany) SBB (Switzerland) and ÖBB (Austria) cover several countries. 

 Reservations 

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is to use other ways to make reservations than the Interrail/Eurail website.  You can look at the guide in the link:

https://community.eurail.com/train-connections-reservations-47/how-to-get-reservations-105

If you, after having looked at the guide, have questions about how to make specific reservation, please give your travel details (departure date, time and route) preferably in a new topic, and you will get advice.

Please note that Interrail/Eurail charges an extra fee of 2 EUR per person and ticket in addition to the fee for the seat reservation.

 Activation of pass

During the activation process, when you choose the start day of the validity of the pass, the first day of the validity period is automatically made a travel day, even if you don't enter a journey, the advice is therefore not to activate the pass before the first travel day as you only can deactivate the pass before 00.00 on the day the validity starts. If your travel plans change in the last moment you will loose travel days if you have activated the pass in advance.

It can be wise to make a test and activate the pass with a start date well in the future and then deactivate the pass immediately, just to see that everything works.

 Activation of travel day

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is also never to activate a travel day, that is connect a journey to your pass, until just before boarding the train, otherwise you might loose a travel day if your travel plans change in a late stage  You can't delete a travel day in the past. A travel day can only be deleted until 23.59 CET the day before the travel day.

Also ask the community in advance to see if someone can verify that the the reversed seats on the trains  you want are actually available.

 

Otherwise you pay for the pass. Then go to reserve a seat and fond out that it may not even be available at all. and you don’t get a full refund for the money you spent on the pass. .

This is by far not the most difficult route-and in fact can be done wholly withOUT any RES-use local trains or in DE/AT even the ICE. Only very last leg Zagreb-Spl must be-and that can only be done when there @ counter. The purpose of the pass is not to rush in hi-speed across a few countries-but to see and explore all the unknown things along the way.

Mademoiselle Stephanie is upset as she -even though Francaise- could not cope with it all.

I like being called a Mademoiselle - Merci mcadv! It’s just frustrating that up to date pricing isn’t available before Passes are bought! That’s all!
