How many interrail days from Bucharest to Istanbul in May?

I think that the trip from Bucharest to Istanbul in May should count as one interrail day as there is a through sleeper from Dimitrovgrad to Halkali. 

My problem is that the Interrail app is coming up as two separate journeys on two separate days:

Dimitrovdrad - Kapikule 22.50-00.45 on Saturday

Kapikule - Halkali 2.30-6.34 on Sunday

How do I avoid using two days of my 5 day pass?

It is one day of your pass! I think you need to enter the journey manually.

Thank you. I’ll give it a go….


I’ve had a go at adding it manually and it looks ok. Phew. I’m saving my last day to get from Luton to Scotland!

Hi, I am doing this exact journey at the end of this month. Did you buy seat reservations prior to doing the journey or just turn up on the day? I don’t want to be in a situation where the sleeper train is fully booked. Any advice would be appreciated. I have followed the seat 61 website, but it is not clear on there what to do with an interrail pass.
