Hey guys, actually I'm planning my South-east Europe Trip and I can't find any connection from Sofia to Istanbul, Beograd or Skopje. Is there any alternative to the missing trains? Or is it just impossible to visit greek, Slovenia and those other countries because of the forest fires and covid?Is there an official website or somethingsomething where I can find some information? Thanks for your support!

I planned a trip from Berlin to Budapest in my trip, but I couldn't book a reservation on the internet, and only in Berlin (directly at the train station)Unfortunately, it was full when I went there, and I can't change the date on my pass. How can I do ? Since I'm not able to take the train ?
German seat only no ticket reservation
I have reserved seats no tickets on trains in Germany on DBs platform. My global pass will work as the ticket correct? I'm specifically going Frankfurt to Munich, then onward Munich to Vienna. Normally I could just book the direct ice train. But due to striking tomorrow in Germany I need to do a more convoluted way, and I need confirm seats, because there is a risk I will not get on otherwise. The train tickets are currently around $400, so that's why I need to know if the pass is going to work as my ticket.

Mobile pass reservation for multiple travellers
Dear community, My girlfriend and myself bought mobile passes to make a trip together this September. However when trying to book overnight trains, we run into the error of not having a pass cover number and/or issuer. Following comments on this forum we dropped Interrail an email weeks ago, but have yet to receive any response. As we are intending to depart soon and don’t have the flexibility to arrive at certain destinations with any delay, we REALLY need these reservations. We were wondering whether you have suggestions how we can work around Interrail’s failure to provide a reliable mobile pass reservation service?
Technical issues seat reservation
I bought an interrail global pass to travel. For some parts of my trip I need seat reservations.However I get faced with an error that blocks me from reserving my seat.It is specific for the train from Montpellier Saint-Roch to Brussels on September 18th, departure at 2:52 PM. When I try to add the seat reservation to the cart this error pops up: “WE CAN NOT MAKE YOUR RESERVATION. The train you found in the timetable has changed recently. Please choose another connection.”I’ve been trying to wait to see if it got solved over time. However it’s know the third day and it’s not solved

Cut off times for booking trains on travel day
Hi all! I am travelling in Genoa, Italy right now and hoping tomorrow to travel to Cinque Terre. We have to first catch a train from Genoa to Levanto and then travel to each of the 5 villages which we choose to visit. My question is, we don’t know how long we will stay at each village and therefore, cannot determine before tomorrow we what trains to book between each village on the inter rail planner app. Can someone please help me confirm whether it is possible to book trains (trains without requiring seat reservations of course) on your travel day or does it have to be booked before midnight of your travel day? I would imagine you can be spontaneous and book additional tickets on your travel day as long as it doesn’t require a seat reservation. Thanks heaps in advance :)
Paper ticket won't arrive in time, can we pick up in station?
We’re trying to travel from newcastle uk to figures vilafante spain, and need to make seat reservations. We have successfully done so for eurostar, but the french connection requires sending paper tickets and there is insufficient time. We can’t have our tickets sent to a hotel in France as we’re doing the trip in one day and not staying at a hotel.Does anyone know how we can make a seat reservation and pick up from a ticket machine or station?I know we could risk it and try and make a seat reservation when we arrive at the station in France, but I want to book it in advance, and pick up the paper ticket for the reservation when we arrive.Also, we’ve tried calling SNCF and they weren’t helpful or clear about how to proceed.
