Travel from Kalamata to Olympia on the Greek Peloponnese
We want to catch a bus from Kalamata in the south Peloponnese to Olympia. It appears the bus stops at Zacharo which is roughly 50km short of Olympia. I dont understand why this would be the case. There seems to only be the option of catching a taxi the remaining distance.Has anybody done this trip? I know that buses coming from the north go all the way to Olympia from Athens. Cheers, Renee L (Australia).
Seat reservations SCNF
Hello, Me and my friends are currently planning our interrail trip and we already bought our passes. On July 29th, we want to travel from Brussels to Lyon, which requires a seat reservation. On the interrail website, it does show us the prices of seat reservation, but when we click on a train ride, the prices disappear and we cannot book our seats anymore. The 'more information' button does tell us that we can book our seats up to 90 days in advance, but since English is not our first language, we do not understand whether this means that we can book the seats no later than 90 days in advance or from 90 days in advance. Does somebody known the answer to this? Thanks in advance!Kinds regards, Simone
Tips for a no-seat-reservations-route from Madrid to South of France

using the pass for a day trip
Hey there!I and my friends are planning a vacation in the south of france this summer. We want to use the 1-country-pass to get there and get back home (we live near the french border, so that’s fine). We want to know, if we can use the third travel day to explore the surrounding area. Is that possible? Because we would finish the trip right where we start it.For example:Could we travel from Cannes to Nizza and back to Cannes in one day with the ticket?
Pass number to buy Eurostar tickets
Hello.I have just got Interrail passes for all the family to get to the UK at Christmas. I want to book the Eurostar now, as I am worried that the limited tickets will disappear. But I need a pass number. I believe the pass number is shown on the paper passes, but not on the e-passes? Which seems a bit silly! I have sent a message asking eurail to confirm my pass numbers. Today is Saturday. When do you think they will respond? Do you think I will have an answer by Monday?? Otherwise I may phone the 30 cents a minute B-europe booking line….Thank You!
Travelling from Florence to Brindisi - can only find slow regional trains
HiI’m trying to travel from Florence to Brindisi in September but can only see the timetable for slower regional trains taking 20 hours +. I know I can do the journey on a fast train in around 7 hours. Are these trains not available to me on my pass, even with a paid for reservation? Or do I need to book this journey directly?Many thanksAnnette
Reservations from Lyon to Barcelona
Dear Community,I need urgently help regarding my booking issue for a connection from Lyon to Barcelona next Monday, 26 September, which is part of my travel from Germany to Madrid. I ordered the Cover Pass Number but I am not able to book the seat reservation for the connection from Lyon to Barcelona on the https://travel.b-europe.com/Eurail-GE/en/booking-tgv#TravelWish website.It does not even show Barcelona as a destination to go to from Lyon.I have no idea how to get a seat reservation now for this connection. It also tells me in the Eurail reservation tool that the ticket is only issued in paper and therefore needs to be sent by mail which impossible to Germany apparently. I already went to the DB Reisezentrum but they couldn’t assist in this issue since its SNCF who is in charge for the connection.I am more than happy for any hints and help.Thank you very much in advance.Franzi
Night train Berlin - Warsaw; unavailable on website
Hello,I want to go in a night train from Berlin to Warsaw, the problem is that I found some good routes (with a very good price) in the interrail app, and then when I click “go to webside” and I search for the trains the first disgrace that I find is that the prices are much higher. Then I click on the journeys that appear there and there is a message saying “prices unavailable” and doesn’t let me do the reservation. Anyone knows what can I do? is it possible that in a future I will be able to do my reservation on the trains? Thank you in advance, Melcior.

How do I get tickets please? totally confused. should I remove the app and start again?
Train from Prague Hlavni Nadrazi to Budapest-Nyugati is modified
Hello!The train from Prague Hlavni Nadrazi to Budapest-Nyugati on July 11, 2022 at 10:56, has been modified. Apparently some traintracks in Hungary cannot be used and part of the route has been replaced with a bus service. Our train is 279 and therefore it is affected by this modification. We reserve a seat on the train, do you have to reserve a seat for the bus or is it already included? Is there something to do or nothing to worry about? Apart from having the seat reserved, we also have the train reserved with the interrail pass.
Seat reservation not possible - ''prices unavailable''
Hi,the end of July I want to travel from Prague to Budapest. I wanted to book seat reservations via the Interrail/Eurail website but it just sais Prices unavailable. I guess because of all the reservation for interrail travellers are sold out already.But on the website of the czech railroad it’s still possible to book a seat reservation. My question is i if it’s ok to make the reservation on this website (and if it’s valid in combinaion with my interrail pass) or does it necessarily need to be booked via the Interrail-website? Best regardsJohannes
Compensation for missing 1st class carriage / reservation
I reserved two seats on the TGV 8362 from La Rochelle to Paris in 1st class. As the train was replaced with a different composition of carriages we were no longer able to travel in 1st class.Are we able to get any compensation as we couldn’t travel 1st class or any refund on our reservations?
Flying v Eurostar
As a resident of the UK I appreciate an Interrail Global pass allows one day usage from the UK and one back. However as we live in the north that would entail an early start to London and then an afternoon Eurostar to Paris/Brussels. Although theoretically a further jump on an evening TGV or ICE could be achieved, that is not appealing. So we plan to utilise “cheap” flights to connect with continental rail points. It seems somewhat expensive with Eurostar and TGV booking fees.With a 10 day in 2 months first class pass we plan to split it into 2 trips.One flying to Catania, a couple of nights in Syracuse, train to Salerno, next day to Bologna for 2 nights, then through alps to Nuremberg for a few nights then back via Brussels.The second, 4 weeks later, is planned as flight to Nice for 2 nights in Monaco/Beausoleil, across to Venice for 2 nights, through the Alps to Vienna for a couple of days. Then on to Prague for a couple of nights before a flight home.Are these realistic itineraries?

Refresh app for newer timetable?
I have downloaded the interrail app more than three months ago and have my trips etc in order. Do I have to download a newer version of the app to get a more recent planner (timetable), or do I lose all I have downloaded so far if I do? I will be leaving a few dans from now (Maybe a dumb question but I am slightly older...)
