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

No trains Spain- Portugal
Hi, I would like to visit Spain and Portugal and see on the website that there is a suggested tour of this (Iberian Adventure). However, I can't find any train rides between these cities of this suggested trip (in the train planner). As indicated, you can travel between Madrid and Vigo, but I can't find any train journeys in the planner….In addition, I can't find any train times between Madrid and Santiago de Compostela, even though this is indicated on your railway map. Furthermore, there are no journeys between Madrid and Lisbon, which is also indicated in the railway map. How can I travel within Spain and Portugal?
Travelling from Stavanger to Bergen

The bus would be this one: Linje NW400 Stavanger–Haugesund–BergenDoes anyone know if this bus is somehow included into my pass ? Or do I have to book it seperatly ?Thanks for your help !!Greeting from Germany,Clara
Booking italian trains (specifically Freccariosa) with a mobile pass on Italiarail.com
I won the Interrail Global Pass thanks to DiscoverEU program. I would like to book an Italian Frecciarossa train (from Turin to Paris) but the self-service system doesn't allow me to (screenshot below). I checked alternative ways to book the train and I'm confused about the information that I found (photo below). I have a mobile pass. If I understand correctly, I can't book the train with Italiarail with a mobile pass? Why is that? I found my train on ItaliaRail (photo below) Do I have any other option to book this ticket with a mobile pass at a discounted price? Or do I have to book it at full price (35€) at the Italian train booking website (trenitalia.com)?

Reservation not possible: Paris - Avignon. 13.04.2022
Hello all, nice to see such a lively forum here!I just spent 4 hours searching very desperately: we are a group of seven people and we want to go from Paris to Avignon on April 13. The departure must be after 11:30 in the morning.Unfortunately, the reservation app does not say if it is a technical error or there are no reservations available. But the TGV does not seem to be bookable.Now my question: does anyone know of a connection between Paris and Avignon on the regional express, and how do we get a reservation. Even if we did not need one, we can stand somewhere and set in the train.I know these are trivial questions, but I also searched different platforms and did not find a concrete answer.Or does it make sense to just go to a travel agency and ask? Have any of you done this tour before?Would be really really grateful for an answer. Thank you so much
Train times; for July nothing is available
Hi, I have a question. I bought interrail tickets for this year and at the time of purchase I downloaded the app and was able to see all of the trains between each destination and was able to plan it out. This was about 2 months ago. Now however when I try to look up train times for July nothing is available and the train times only go as far as May. I was wondering why this is happening as it was working when I first got the tickets but now I can’t check for July. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Overview of booking fees for reservations/supplements
I couldn’t find an overview of booking fees when buying reservations/supplements for various trains. Next to online platforms, it seems that local train operators charge different fees when buying reservation at a customer service center. Does such an overview exist? If not, please add info below, ideally with an online reference. It would be great if Eurail can aid in compiling/correcting such a list.NOTE: This is not about the reservations/supplements themselves, which are well documented. Online platforms:Interrail/Eurail reservation service: 2 € per seat b-europe (domestic TGV): 4 € per bookingTrain operators (online / local customer service):DB: Germany - France (TGV/ICE): 3 € per seat

Seat reservation - name on ticket
Dear community, I have a question regarding my seat reservation. I booked a seat reservation for the train from Lyon (France) to Barcelona (Spain). Since the printed ticket for the seat reservation will be delivered after starting my journey and I will already be at a friend's place at that time, I had to indicate his name and his address as the delivery address. With this post, I just wanted to make sure that the name indicated on the seat reservation ticket will be my name, not his name? My name was automatically chosen as the traveller's name during the booking process, however, I wanted to make sure that everything will be okay with the ticket. Thank you in advance for your replies!
