I have 3 reservations in my cart but when I go to ‘add traveller details’ I am booted out of the Cart and I am at the main page again.  On this page the Cart shows empty, but when I go to ‘Book Reservations’ again, it shows 3 items in my cart.  I just keep going in circles and can not add traveller details or payment:(

There are better ways to make reservations than the Interrail/Eurail website. 

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.

My cart containing two trips, Venice to Milan and Milan to Florence has crashed, shows 0 trips.  I attempted to re-establish the trips and received the message that these were already in the cart? I also attempted to add two additional trips, but the system did not offer an option for 4 travelers, which I have in my trip planner.

@George Harris The Interrail/Eurail website is not the best place to make reservations. The advice from the experienced travellers is to avoid making reservations there if possible. Please read more below.
