Hi, I’m new to the interrail community. This summer my friend and I will be interrailing for the first time. We are leaving on the 24th of july and just started booking tickets. However, there are a lot of trains that need seat reservations. When I try to make a seat reservation online for the 25th of july, it says that there are no tickets left and when I click on extra information it says that you can only reserve seats 60 days before the travel date and earlier. Unfortunately we are now at 54 days before the travel date and it seems that we can’t make a seat reservation anymore trough the website of interrail. Does anyone now in what other way I can make a seat reservation for me and my friend? For now, it is for the train from Berlin HBF tot Krakow Glowny on the 25th of july, that depards at 10:39 am. Thank you for your help!
Hello!im planning to drive through France to Spain and back to France and Switzerland and Italy. The problem is that pretty much every train needs a seat reservation and at the moment all of my trains are basically booked out? I don’t know if there is a problem with the system or if it’s true .Is there any way I still can get a ticket- or the seat reservation?
Hi:) i am really new to interrail and really excited about it. However i have a small problem.so i booked a reservation a few weeks ago from Amsterdam Centraal to London. However, my plans have slightly changed and at the date of this journey I am in Bruxelles instead of in Amsterdam. Is it possible to board the train (where I have a seat reservation from Amsterdam to London) also from Bruxelles (which is two stops after Amsterdam)? Or will the reservation not be valid if you do not board the train at the station of your reservation?thankss if anyone has the answer to my question:) have a lovely evening🥰
Do you have to print it out and show it on the train along with the QR code on your interrail app or can you put the reservation you have bought on the app?
I am travelling with one other person from Lille France to Bordeaux France and I have the mobile pass, I understand that you can put the trips in the plan on the app and then that will work for taking that trip but I am confused about making reservations where required.From what I understand reservations are separate from the interrail pass but you can make the reservations and pay for the reservation for the specific train time you want to take on the interrail website. But when you make the reservation, do you have to print it out and show it on the train along with the QR code on your interrail app or can you put the reservation you have bought on the app?
I just started using the Eurail Global Pass and i’m very insecure about it. I already lost one day of trip i think because i couldn’t reserve a seat. And now i’m not knowing how to use the app and the website, because the informations in them are not matching. My questions is: How do I know that i will get a seat in the trains that don't need a reservation? And what do i show to get in the train?I made a reservation on the website in my account and this trip didn’t appeared in the app, what do i need to do?
I have a Eurail pass. On it there are 2 trips (for early June). I have been able (at last) to book the reservations for Eurostar that I need. BUT - my wife also has a Eurail pass. On it is 1 trip that we do together. Eurostar reservation OK. But she has also booked a 2nd trip back to the UK (not with me - alone), which appears in HER app, and for THAT trip she wants to book a Eurostar reservation. At that point she is told that she doesn’t have any trips booked yet. What is going on???
I’m tying to book seat reservations for 4 from Barcelona Sants to Valencia Sorolla on June 24 but the specific train time (18:15) I need (that is listed on RENFE site and on Rail Europe) is not listed on Eurail so I can not reserve my seats. I called Renfe and they said Eurail pass holders can only book that train 3 days in advance-- is this true? Also he said there were 125 seats left for that particular time but couldn’t tell me out of how many total so I don’t know if this is good or bad for my chances of getting a seat if I wait until I am in Spain to reserve? I will be traveling from Montpellier to Barcelona earlier that day and need to connect to that specific train to get to Valencia. Does anyone have any tips, advice or experience with this? Thank you!
Hello!I have two important questions:As you can see in the first image, it won't let me reserve a seat for either of the two trains from Ljubljana to Split. Do you know how and where I can reserve seats on both trains? Does it mean that they are full or that I have to buy the ticket at the station? The second question is why on the seat reservation website (first image) it says that the train from Ljubljana to Zagreb is the NT 415 and in the application (second image) where I have the pass it says that it is the EN 415 train? Thank you!
Hello Interrailers and Eurailer!How you (almost) all know, in Germany and Austria you don’t have to book a reservation, but you can via bahn.com (4€/trip 2nd class) and tickets.oebb.at (3€/train) via seat only option. Some trains are now and I presume this summer very full. Please check before boarding via bahn.com the utilization forecast for German trains and via fahrplan.oebb.at the utilization forecast note for Austrian trains. For trains that will be full you get a note with the text that a reservation is preferable to get a seat. Some trains now, have a note that due to that this trains are full, you only are allowed to get in the train with reservations. Without you have to leave the train.
Hi there i was wondering if anyone could help! me and my friends were planning getting the 23:09 train from Stockholm Central → Copenhagen, changing over at Malmo C. This comes up in the journey planner, but it is not available to see in the reservation sections? I have also tried the SJ.se website for the swedish railway services, and it’s not on there either? Any help appreciated!
Hi, i am trying to book a train from zurich-como on 09.06.22. But when i try to book a seat it says «prices unavaileble. Come back in a few houres to see prices and reserve a seat». I have checked the website many times during the last few days but it still says «prices unavaileble». I have also checed with the train company and the train is not sold out. I get the same error if I try to book any other random seat reservations. Does anyone share the same problem??
Hi, everyone.I have a one country pass for Italy (I’m travelling in the beginning of July) and I booked my reservations on the ÖBB website, because I saw on the interrail.eu website that I could do that. But I noticed that I didn’t needed to use my pass number during any of the reservations and I thought that was a bit weird.I just received an e-mail from interrail.eu saying that I could start booking my reservations on their app/website and now I’m confused if my reservations made on the ÖBB website are valid or not. Noticed that I have received the email with all of the ticket reservations but I don’t know what to do now
Hello fellow travelers 👋I'm looking for information regarding my trip from Bruxelles to Bordeaux. I'd be traveling with the One Country Pass for France. My question: is the Thalys train connection Bruxelles-Midi to Paris Nord included in the One Country Pass for France and do I only need to pay for the reservation or do I have to buy a separate ticket which is not the Interrail one? It is a direct connection so I don't know which rule applies. Your help would be appreciated 🙏
Hi, I have been emailing interrail but I have been unable to get an answer. Me and my friends are trying to get a reservation on a train from Lille Europe (France) to Amsterdam Centraal, however when on the interrail website it doesn’t allow a reservation. The reasons given for why we can’t reserve it seem contradictory, see attached images. One of these reasons is that it can only be booked 90 days in advance, but that day is long gone. What can we do to get a seat reservation on this train? We tried calling the station but it was just an automated voice saying the number didn’t work. Please reply asap as we need this reservation.Train DetailsDeparture and Arrival Date – Friday 5th August 2022Departure from Lille Europe – 20:30Arrival at Amsterdaam Central – 23:11Thanks,Maria Chiara Grech

Hello everyone,I won the interrail global pass (7 days of travel over a month) and I have problems to make seat reservations.I plan to leave this summer from July 30th to August 15th from France to Germany, Poland, Hungary and finally Austria.When I try to book my seat for the trip from Berlin to Gdansk by train on July 31st, on the interrail website it says for all trains: "Prices unavailableNo prices were found for this route. It is possible that seats for Pass holders are sold out. Look for another route or see "More Information" for other booking options. If Pass seats are sold out, you will need to purchase a full-fare ticket to travel on this train".I would like to know if all the seats are taken (I would be surprised if this is the case since all the trains every day for several months show this)I am waiting for your feedback Thanks a lot
I have emailed firstname.lastname@example.org 4 days ago regarding why my night train ticket from Genova to Rome shows price of 3 Euros when I have actually been charged 122 euros. The reservation ticket also states it is a second class ticket when I have actually booked the first class couchette. The ticket shows a seat number instead of a couchette number. i.e 14A, 14B etc.
Hi Everyone,I’m sure you guys have had plenty of questions like this so far, but I’m at my wit’s end here. I’ve had no END of problems with my Pass, and this latest one is infuriating. I’ve been trying to book a trip from Venice to Verona on June 17th for DAYS now. Every single time, there has been a ‘prices are currently unavailable’ error. Other sites still have tickets available, so I know they aren’t sold out: moreover, the entire DAY will not load. I’ve already had to buy multiple tickets on other websites, defeating the purpose of this pass, and I’ll be damned if I lose more money to this. Any ideas?
I am trying to book a trip from Offenburg, Germany to London on 26/6. I would prefer to travel through Lille so we don’t have to change train stations. There are options but the site keeps saying pricing/reservations aren’t available at this time. I’ve had this issue daily for the past week...which means I’ve been reserving just 1 trip per day. If I try to schedule more than 1 at a time the website goes crazy slow. I really need to get this scheduled. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
Help!So we are currently trying to reserve the seats needed for our trip in August, but now that we have found, and selected, all the trains and seats, for some reason the button that says “continue to traveler details” can’t be clicked.We have filled all the boxes that could be filled. This is how it looks:I have blacked out private informationThese are the tickets (seats) we are trying to book: Does anyone have an idea regarding what we’re doing wrong?Any help is much appreciated
