Reserving sleeper cars: Is there anyway to ensure that we are booked in a sleeper car on these overnight trains, and not just in regular seats?
I have purchased global rail passes for myself and my family for a Europe trip In July/august. I have run into a question about reservations. There are several nights that we would like to use the sleeper trains. I can see that we can reserve these through yours website service. I also know from making my other reservation that seats will be selected for me, but Is there anyway to ensure that we are booked in a sleeper car on these overnight trains, and not just in regular seats. It appears that both seating types are available on this train.
Buy seat reservation in Madrid - does it work?
Hey guys!I have to take the train from Madrid to Leon and then from Leon to Vigo on Sunday (27/03). Both connections require a reservation. The app says I can only book the tickets on the spot at a counter. Does anyone have experience with this? Does it work well? Or is there any option to buy the tickets online after all? Thank you!!
Brussels-Köln with One Country pass ''your pass is not valid for this connection''
I have bought a German Rail Pass for me and my boyfriend, because I found it is also valid for ICE-trains between Brussels and Köln (source: it says in the conditions “"The German Rail Pass is valid on the following direct routes: Cologne (Köln Hbf) - Brussels (Bruxelles-Midi) Cologne (Köln Hbf) - Liège (Liège-Guillemins)" and I found also confirmation here German Interrail pass : Liège (Belgium) to Cologne (Köln, Germany) | Community (eurail.com) ).But now I tried to reserve us seats for this train, and it says “Your Pass or the Pass of a travel companion is not valid for this connection.”How can this be solved? Thank you!
Interrail app does not find the connection Barcelona - Madrid
Dear community, I have another question regarding my Interrail tour. I am travelling from Barcelona to Madrid with a train at 8 p.m. I was able to make a seat reservation for this train via Deutsche Bahn. However, when I tried to find this train connection in the Interrail app, it didn’t show up. What could be the reason for this? And will I have any problems if I travel with this train without that it’s listed in my app? (I have the seat reservation as a printed ticket though). Thank you in advance for your help!
Seat and bed reservation Berlin HBF to Malmö Central
Hi everyone! New Eurail couple here and we are super confused about the seat “Reservation” required on most of our selected trains in our trip for MAY 2022….either the Eurail app says to do it “at station” and on countries’ train website it says “reservation impossible”also, the Eurail and countries train websites times, are often different …..Am I reading too much into this or is this difficult to get in sync?Are long night-train cabins worth it and how long before a trip can those be reserved?
Reserveren lukt niet: Stockholm naar Umea Ostra station - 9 juni.
Hoe kan het dat het reserveren van een nachttrein niet lukt?Overal krijg ik een rood signaal, terwijl ik via bv de SJ wel kan boeken, maar dan is de nachttrein 4x zo prijzig, ik heb niet voor niets een 1ste klas inter/eurorail globall pass genomen.
I can't find trains in the app for Bosnia and Herzegovina Montenegro, Kosovo, Serbia, northern Macedonia, Albania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania
Hello, I'd like to ask whether the European railway pass in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the cross-border trains in Montenegro, Kosovo, Serbia, northern Macedonia, Albania, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can't be booked. I can't find it on the app. Then I see that the European railway pass has four free rides on the Greek islands and two Italian round trips to Greece, but there is no one when I click the preferential option for four domestic round trips, However, there are round-trip tickets in Italy, as well as European railway tickets. Many of them are operated by railway, but they will appear when scheduled/
Delay and changes close to midnight. Does that cost an extra travel day?
Hi! I’m planning a trip through Europe. I want to take a train from Berlin to Copenhagen, with a change in Hamburg at 23:56. If the previous train is not in time and I have to take the next train on the next day, does it count as 2 days of travel, or the travel day refers at the scheduled time?

Missed train toward final destination. Can I take another without extra reservation fees?
hi, i would need help for my onward connection to final destination (Munich). My initially booked reservation from London 1104am to Midi Brussels 205pm (Eurostar ES9126) Midi Brussels 225pm to Cologne 405pm (ICE17) - booked via DB Cologne to Dusseldorf (RE26879) Dusseldorf 1127pm to Munich 24th Mar 603am (ICE 619) - booked via DBHowever, now that i missed my train and got rebook onto next train leaving London at 304pm and arriving Midi Brussles at 605pm. Is there a possibility that i can be taking the trains shown in the photo without having to pay for any extra fees? Also this would mean that my reservation fee for ICE17 will be wasted ? Lastly, any tips on how early should i be arriving at the train station for trains in Germany & Paris ?
Seat Reservation at SNCF
Hi there,I´m planning a multistop trip from Spain to Germany. I´ve already bought a Pass, and could make all reservations except for one, from Hendaye to Paris with a TGV. For that connection I find: “ No price results were found for this connection. Please try searching again or find an alternative way to book”. The problem is, I cannot find any other alternative way to book the reservation, at least not a reasonable. I called today to SNCF, and they explicitely told me, it is not possible to buy seat reservations online, and also not at the phone. They said I must come to a french train station… which I can´t really believe…I won´t be in france until exactly the day of beginning my journey, and the missing seat reservation is for the first train I would need…. so it would be really risky to wait until minutes before departure to go in person to the service at the station and ask for buying the seat reservation. That is really risky. If that doesn´t work, I lost the following connecti
Reservation problem Lyon (France) - Barcelona (Spain) - living in Belgium
Dear all This Saturday I am planning to go from Lille (France) to Barcelona (Spain) with my interrail pass. There is a change of trains in Lyon. For Lille-Lyon I can make my reservations for seats online, for Lyon-Barcelona I cannot - this needs to happen by post 6 days prior to departure (for which I am too late) or in a station. I live in Belgium, and here the local railway service (NMBS) does not provide seat reservation for trains to Barcelona (I really don’t understand why??). My solution is to go on Saturday to Lille (France) early enough and hope that it still will be possible to make reservations for my train from Lyon to Barcelona on that same day. Is there anyone who knows if this is possible? And whether I can check prior to departure whether there are still enough places free?Thank you in advance! Karel
Train not showing on website to make reservation
Hi, I’ve booked the trip on the app London St Pancras 08:16 to Amsterdam Central 13:11 (direct) on 13 June 22, but when I go to the Interrail website to book seat reservations, this particular train is not showing. I can see earlier or later trains (none of which are direct) - why would this be, and how can I book seat reservations on this Eurostar train? Thanks
Change TGV reservation CDG to Strasbourg
I have a reservation to arrive at CDG on a Friday in May this year and hope to depart soon after for Strasbourg by TGV and know a reservation is required. It is sometimes slow and difficult to get from the plane through immigration and customs. I should have 2 hours between arrival and departure of the TGV (morning). There is another 2 hrs 23 minutes later. Since arrival is on a Friday morning I expect the TGV demand to be high and am watching it now. If I were sure of the trip I could make a reservation now but plan to wait about another month.One strategy is to book the earlier departure knowing that if the plane flies at all I could make the later TGV. Another is just the opposite, i.e. book the earlier thinking that if it becomes clear that I can’t catch it in time I could possibly change the reservation to the later TGV. My wife will be waiting at CDG and will know the status of the flight and could make the change if it is clear we wont make the early TGV. She will be at
Reservation Narbonne - Barcelona. How to avoid a reservation?
Hi, I‘m currently in Carcasonne.As my next step I want to go to Barcelona, which is possible via a train from Narbonne. Problem is, the reservation for it costs 34€.My question is if it possible to get in the train without a reservation, it‘s a Tgv and it would be no problem for me to not have a seat during the ride.So if i show them just my interrail app with this trip, would this be enough, or do you HAVE to pay for the reservation.Thanks for the answer :)
When your train is not visible anymore when searching train times on interrail.
Hello fellow interrailers.Me and my boyfriend both won interrail passes through the discover eu competition, and we are traveling as a group. I got my pass before him, and added a journey in the app, a Nightjet train from Muenchen HBF to Roma Termini on 13th of June, with OEBBs NJ 295 train. We bought tickets for a sleeper cabin as well. Now when my boyfriend tries to add this journey to his travel plans in the rail planner app, it does not show up. Another similar OEBB train does, but it has a change of trains in Villach HBF and the train number is NJ 40295, and then in Villach it changes to train NJ 40233. The tickets we bought, and the journey that still shows up in my app, does not have any changes. Is it the same train? Does our train not show up because it is fully booked? What should we do? PLEASE help us. Kindest RegardsMira
