I am trying to book the night train from Krakow to Prague and it leaves at 22:42 and arrives at 7:31 the next day. After checking on polrail, it seems that the train does not actually switch, and that you end up staying in the same car, but it changes operators and switches tracks in Bohumin. The app views this as a switching connection, and as such, it’s requiring me to spend 2 travel days despite it not actually switching. I would think since it’s technically a single train, it shouldn’t count as multiple days.
Do I actually need to activate the second half of the trip as long as I get the reservation via polrail and flip the initial switch in the app for Krakow - Bohumin? Is there a way to do this without the app using 2 travel days?

If you add the train manually to the app, then only 1 travel day should be used.
For anyone else who ends up taking this train, I contacted cd.cz customer support and they said I should be good to use the rail pass and just needed to book a reservation. So as noted above, I added the train manually, booked the reservation, and I’ll report back afterwards if I had any issues.
I will report this, but I cannot promise the changes will be visible any time soon. For now, it is a good advice to add the journey manually.
Have a lovely week!
