I need to return home to London on July 16, a couple of days early, but there are no available trains from Paris to London on 16 th and 17 th. This leg of my journey starts in Zurich, can anyone suggest an alternative route that avoids Paris and will take me back to London. Or if there are any other suggestions that would be welcome too! also, is a night train an option? thanks all!!! Felicia
Hello all, I will be travelling from Paris nord to brussels on 13th Feb and i had already booked a train timing from the Eurail main website and paid for seats reservation (as i have the global pass). It gives me an E ticket and it’s u see Thylas plus it fits nicely the Eurail main website and my Eurail app that generates the QR code (which is rare as the app is not up the date), and i’m feeling very relief. So recently, there have been train disruptions and strikes so i’ve been checking Thylas main website (as that is what Eurail website suggested after you press “train disruptions”) in order to make sure the train that i had booked via the Eurail website is smooth going and not disrupted. However, after keying in my train departure and arrival station i could not seems to find the booking i’ve made via eurail website using the pass on the Thylas website. Can someone please advise what is going on - does it means Eurail has set aside some booking that don’t appear on Thylas website
Night train Budapest Zurich : Sleepers reservations not possible from abroad for Interrail travelers
Hello,It is not possible to buy sleepers (double) online - or any other way from abroad - for the night train Budapest Zurich for interrail travelers. I faced this problem for several trip attempts...Practically : the option “Sleepers” is not available online on any website (nor at railway station in Zurich, or elsewhere).I called directly MAV : they confirmed that spaces were available. Full Tickets could be bought but NOT only the sleepers reservation for interrail travelers from abroad. They said there was just no option but to buy these reservations from a railway station within Hungary. Quite a heavy restriction !Is it some kind of discrimination ?Thank youJJM
Hi, I need help because I don't understand how the pass works.I am living in Germany and would like to go to Edinburgh in June. My question is the following, once I buy the 4 days in 1 month pass, should I buy the tickets for the trip to Edinburgh or do I just get on the trains?If I have to reserve the seat, do I have to pay extra? Thank you!
Dear all,For our trip Brussels Malaga with 2 children and 2 adults we have managed to book all seat reservations now, however we had to use all different channels (DB Reiseservice, sncf hotline, our extended family in Spain going to the train station…). Thanks for all the super advice already here on the community which helped a lot.I still have one issue though as the reservation done through sncf have spelling mistakes (f instead of s 2x in my family name and the one of the kids). Basically one could still deduct that it’s us, but it’s not the same. Does anybody have a recent experience whether this is being controlled? Shall I contact sncf to cancel and re-issue? bests,Elisabeth
Hi All, is anyone can help me. How to find a train from Portbou to Barcelona? Since I can’t see the train route in any website. I thought it’s the cheapest way to get Barcelona from france area. Is anyone have any experience with this route? how much is the ticket price from Portbou to Barcelona?
Hey! So, unfortunately, 24th July is our last day and last travel day of our Interrail trip, our Passes are valid till this date. We’ve just recognised that we’ve bought earlier (like a month ago) our seat reservations on our very last train the Zürich - Budapest night train (14 € / person). This train departs on the 24th, but arrives next day, on 25th, consequently this, arrival date is not in the Pass validity. Yeah, we know, we should have thought about this way more before… But now the full fare tickets for this route are very, very expensive (100 € / person), which we frankly cannot afford. What should we do?? Are we in a trouble?? Such a bad situation…..
Hi all;I’ve just purchased a mobile pass to travel through France, but I’ve now run into a problem in that I apparently need a “Pass Cover Number” in order to book travel on the French train network, and my mobile pass doesn’t appear to have one of these?Is there any way to obtain a Pass Cover Number for a mobile ticket? The trip sort of hinges on being able to make these French reservations and I’d prefer to not have to do it on the day of travel at the train station!
Hi!I would like to book a seat for a particular train connection that I found in the Interail app. For booking I am always sent to the website, but there I cannot find my suitable connection... Can you tell me how else I can make a reservation for the connection ? Or can I theoretically go without a reservation? After all, I can already download the ticket for my connection, even without reservation. Thanks for your help!
I want to go by bus from Murjek (Sweden, Norrland) to Kvikkjokk. The provider is Länstraffiken Norrbotten , which is listed as participating by Interrail (www.interrail.eu/de/plan-your-trip/tips-and-tricks/trains-europe/railway-companies). But I can’t get a ticket: Kvikkjokk is not listed at all, for there is no railway station.

Seat Reservations from Oslo to Copenhagen. What is the best place to book a reservation for this train?
I am looking to reserve some seats on a train from Oslo to Copenhagen (via Gotenborg). The App says I need to reserve the seat but I cannot do it through the app or the website, (I seem to have this problem reserving any seats through the app/website and have booked them all through the train companies themselves). Does anyone know the best place to go to book a reservation for this train? Many thanks
In between I came back to Holland (by plane). How does it work when I continue my trip: I check in with my regular ‘train checkin card (ov chip card)) to the border, but how do I find the exact border station and then I probably have to go off the train to check out (in Holland)? Or better to buy a ticket so I don’t have to check out...Biggest change is I go to England. Which station is the border station...Any advice / your experience is welcome. Thank you,
Digging through the posts about Portugal reservations, I understand that I won’t be able to make my reservation until I am actually there. However, I am concerned about actually being able to get seats on a popular train route (Faro-Lisbon) for the dates that I want to travel. It’s all over the eurail website to reserve ASAP because clearly summer is a busy time. I won’t be in portugal until 4 days before I want to take the train (in July). I think I have read somewhere that Portugal does not have the same restrictions as France, etc, on the number of eurail passholder seats per train - can someone confirm this or help point me towards more information? Thanks! Also, is anyone else disappointed in the Eurail program for southern europe? I ended up just buying tickets for Spain individually and am going to just leave travel days unused because I was watching trains fill up before my eyes (for dates months out), because I had no way to book reservations and didn’t want to mess up destina
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
LONG response times from booking search engine are keeping me from being able to make seat reservations
I have been working for two solid days to secure a mandatory seat reservation on a train from Vienna to Utrecht that is a critical leg of my planned trip.Most of the time when I try to search for trains the search times out before I get a list of possible trips, and this is true regardless of what I enter for the origin and destination of the trip. I just get a spinning wheel that eventually times out before any train connections are shown.On the rare occasions that the system shows me some options for the desired train trip, if I try to select the mandatory reservations and add them to my cart, the cart usually shows them as added. But when i then try to purchase the seat reservations, I either get back to a spinning wheel OR the site logs me out automatically OR I get told that the reservations I selected are no longer possible. When the last happens, I am not given an option to go back to the previous search and select either a different level of seat reservations or a different
Eurail Pass user. Departing from Amsterdam by IC. 1. Amsterdam -> Brussels train 2. Brussels. → Paris. The Brussels-Paris train has been booked, but the Amsterdam-Brussels trains are by IC, so I didn't reserve a seat separately. It didn't say "Seat reservation required" but it said "Supplement required". But now I've searched for the train service again, and this section doesn't come out. So I'm wondering if I have to get a train ticket again. The train leaves IC9232 at 11:28.
Hello - before I activate my pass I wanted to check train availability.When checking on Paris-Amsterdam for Monday August 7th, on the website it says ‘Reservations required’ and then ‘Reservation unavailable’, but on the Rail planner app it says ‘Reservations required’ and then give a price for the seat reservation.Which one should I trust ?
Hello, I am wondering why multiple routes leaving from Geneva are no longer showing up on the app or the website despite the routes still running (e.g. Geneva-Lyon mid-morning departures 9:30, 11:30, 12:25; all Geneva-Paris direct trains). I was able to see them a few weeks ago for the same dates in late October. How should we get seat reservations if the routes don’t show up on the timetable anymore? I also tried to look for seat reservations on travel.b-europe but Geneva is no longer an option.
I have purchased a ticket thru Trenitalia from Rome Termini to Innsbruck Main The journey has me changing from Trenitalia Frecciarossa 9584 to DB-Oebb EuroCity 80. I was able to print a PDF ticket from Rome to Bologna, however I have not found a way to print a PDF ticket on Oebb from Bologna to Innsbruck. I do have a PNR Code for both legs of the travel.
