I’ve done a trip once with interrail. So I know the basics, inbound-outbound, travel days, the difference between trip and journey etc. I was using a flexi paper pass back then.
Now I am planning to do another trip and I have few questions about the mobile pass.
My understanding is that once I activate it (and I need to do this in order to book the reservations) - my trip gets fixed and I cannot change it, i.e. I am going from place A to B on the days X, Y, Z and I cannot change it either to be from place A to C or on days, X, Y, Q.
But does it really work like that? I remember when I used paper pass each day I could decide that I want to travel that day and get on that or another train. I had a lot of flexibility.
I would like to give an example below:
Let’s say I need 4 travel days: 13, 14, 18 and 30th
- I need to book a reservation for a train on 13th. If I understood correctly, in order to do that I need to submit a trip in the app and activate my pass. From that moment my trip is fixed for those days. Can I change my mind during my trip and decide that I want to stay somewhere for a longer time and hence change a travel day from, say 18th to 20th?
- I heard and read that I can update and modify my journeys during my travel. For example, in case of missing the connection train beacuse of earlier train getting delayed. I want to make sure that it is possible to modify your journeys.
- Okay, during my trip on 13,14 and 18 I’m travelling for example from Warsaw to Venice and on the 30th I would like to make a disconnected journey such as London - York. But after some unexpected events I would need to change it and travel from Bristol to Leeds* for example. Is this possible with mobile pass?
*I have one more concern that this would mean that the destination of my trip would be different from the one I submitted to the app.
Please adress my questions using numbers to avoid confusion
