If a train (that does not require reservations) is fully booked, can we still board it without sitting down?
Hello,My friends and I are planning on doing an Interrail trip this summer and we had a question about the seat reservations. Some trains seem to be fully booked on the days we were planning on taking them but the seat reservations are not required to board the train. Is it possible to still take the train without sitting down or is the seat required to board the train ?Thank you for the help,Louise
Hi I made five seat reservations yesterday for the Paris to Bordeaux Train ( In August ) There is a glitch, which means that when I select the 17.11 train, the 16.11 train is indicated ( screenshot attached ) however when you fo through to review order, the 17.11 is indicated again. My reservations have arrived, but they are for the 16.11, which is too early for our connection. Is there a helpline/ email address I can contact to correct this? Has anybody else experienced the same problem? Thank you Faye
Hey :)i am planning my first interrail trip and our route is now trough Denmark to Stockholm, from Stockholm overnight with the Tallink ferry to Turku and from there staight to Helsinki.In Helsinki we want to take the Santa Clause Express Nighttrain to Rovaniemi but i am encountering a few problems while looking for reservations on this train. I have already seen this site which says that the train is included in interrail and lists prices. We want to book a cabin for two people with an own shower which should cost 49€ p.p. according to the interrail site. On the vr website i could’nt find an option to look up the prices with an interrail pass so i went to a train station. Here they said, that they also cant look up the prices for late august, which i assume is due to the fact, that you can only book 60 days in advance. Is that correct or is it possible, that the cabins are already gone?And when the lady looked up an earlier date, to see the possible prices, they were 120€ for that cab
Hi there. I have kept trying to get in touch with Eurail or Interrail over the last couple of weeks but haven’t heard anything back, so am trying here instead. I’m trying to book a Eurostar with an interrail mobile pass but everywhere says I need a Pass Cover Number, which I don’t have as it is a mobile pass. This seems a pretty significant flaw in the system which they should tell you before you choose a mobile pass. It looks like people have been sent private messages with pass cover numbers through this thread so I am just trying to see if I can get some help quicker through here as I am worried about our trains being booked up before I hear anything. Does anyone know how this might happen? Many thanks
I have not been able to reserve the full couchette for our family of 5 travelling 23rd July Austerlitz - Nice
I had hoped to book the complete space for a family of 5 to travel in comfort, it is the first time for the girls and travelling overnight with an additioanl stranger is going to be challenging for them. Unforatunaly the very helpful SNCF assistant could not inform me whether we were to be travelling with an additiaonl Male or Female.When I look at the Trainline app ( UK booking site) , their option for booking five people is as shown and doesn’t seem to want to group us together!! I am wondering if this if why there are no empty couchette, as I was informed that there was one person in each carriage??Any advice would be appreciated.
Hello!Me and my friends are travelling in July from Paris to Madrid and seat reservations aren’t available online. That’s why we tried to call Deutsche Bahn since I saw someone recommending it, but nobody answered. Does anyone has any more recommendations how to book this seat reservation, since I would like to have it before we come to Paris?
Bonjour j’ai une question !Avec un pass interrail est-il possible de descendre à un arrêt qui n’est pas le final ? En exemple :Sur un trajet Oslo - Bergen est-il possible de descendre à Haugastol puis de reprendre le train à un autre horaire depuis Haugastol direction Bergen ? Le tout sans payer de supplément. En soi est-il possible de prendre un train à partir d’un arrêt qui n’est pas une grande ville mais qui fait partie du trajet interrail ? merci a vous 😁
Hi,Just wondering if there are any experienced rail travellers on here who could advise please?We have reserved our eurostar connections, but most of the others we are doing say “You can buy a seat reservation if you like but it's not required”. Are we likely to be able to get on the trains? Do they get really full? Thank you!
I ordered my seat reservations to be delivered to the hostel I am staying in Prague (8 to 11 June) and have received confirmation from Interrail Customer Services that they are on their way with a link to PostNL and a track & trace number. When I check the delivery status it says “the item is being held, addressee being notified” but I haven’t received any messages and the hostel do not have the tickets. I do not know who to contact in Prague to check where the tickets are and if they’ll be redelivered. Please advise.thanks
Hello,We are two students who have the Global Pass and want to go to Norway from 6th to 14th of July. We have seen that we have to book a seat on 3 of the trains that we want to get. They are the followings:REG 80605REG 80065REG 80062The problem is that the web page only gives us the option of delivering the tickets to us by post mail and even doing it more than one month in advance, when we enter our address (in Spain) the web sais that they calculate that the tickets will not arrive on time.What can we do about it?
For Barcelona sants - Portbau trains on the 6th July 2022, there’s trains on the eurail planner website at 8:15, 9:16, and 10:00 that don’t appear on the railplanner app. Also for the trains that are on both the website and railplanner (8:16 and 10:16) the website has the reservation details as “unavailable” but the railplanner app lists them as fine to travel on. I’m just curious what is going on with this line, I’ve heard that RENFE doesn’t share their timetables very well, but taking the 9:16 would be preferable to the 10:16 and it would be good to know if the train even exists.
Hey guys,currently I am planing my trip. I want to travel from Bordeaux to Boulogne-sur-Mer. The Rail Planner App says that I have to switch the train station in Paris by transferring with the public transport.But I don’t know how long it would take to transfer and how many time I have left until the next train is coming.is there a possibility to find that out?Greetings
I booked train reservations for my family’s Frankfurt to Amsterdam leg of our trip. When looking to print the tickets, I realized they said silent compartment. We are traveling with children. Does anyone have any advice on how I can change these tickets? Thank you so much!
I tried for the first time to book a journey from Hamburg to Vienna with NJ. But I see that there is a notification that says “Tickets not available”. Does that mean that there are no tickets available or have I misunderstood something or missed some information?
We are currently in Scotland. We are trying to book a trip to Germany, that stops over in London, but somehow we can't. We tried to test it if its just London. But we can't book anything. We paid for the one month pass for approximately €682ish or $1100+ NZD. We were wondering, if there are extra costs to actually book a train ride etc. What is the use of buying that expensive one month pass? Help please. If only we knew, we wouldn't have booked a eurail pass that expensive if it was going to be useless
Hello,I just activated my pass. Issued first ticket for a short trip. I chose a specific time. But what if I miss the train?. Can I take the next one.?Sorry, I am not able to go through the previous answers if somebody already asked. Also, if I am siting on a seat noted as reservation with read light indicated, does that mean it is already reserved and I shouldn't sit there?Thank youMaymol
Hi! I'm trying to book a reservation for a train between Hamburg and Paris June 16th at 05.54 but it seems to be some issue.At the interrail website it says "Prices unavailable" and when I go to DB website it says "Reservation impossible".Anyone who experienced the same and how did you managed to book the reservation?
Hi,I have a seat reservation for my Amsterdam - Berlin train. I made the reservation on the DB website and they gave me a proof of payment (ticket with the seat location). Do you know if I have to add it to my interrail pass or with the proof of payment is enough? Thank u
Hi! Are seat reservations required on the trains within Montenegro or within Serbia?As it is not possible to reserve online in advance I am wondering whether I only can jump on a train or I need to make the reservation. Also, how much do the reservations cost if they are required?
Are you guaranteed a seat if you have a eurail pass? I bought this not realizing seat reservations are required for my itinerary for Spain and it is only allowing me to reserve in person. I am afraid I will not get a seat since I only arrive two days before I travel on the train.
