Hi allNeed to prebook 1st classseat reservations for 2 people with global pass June 2nd Stuttgart to Strasbourg ICE 9572 which is TGV, with limited seats for interrail pass holders.Know its pricey but need to be sure of seats, for few reasons.Tried DBapp, CD website, OB app and SNCF. Phrases such as ticket not available or the button to book seat res only on DB is just not on screen. Is it just too early or are they sold out? All help appreciated, cheers
Hi! This is my first time using Eurail. I have already purchased my pass and was patiently waiting for 90 days before my trip to book, which is today. However, I went on this morning and it’s saying “price unavailable” and won’t allow me to book the seat reservations. It would be on Sept. 7 from Amsterdam to Paris at 7:15am. Does anyone have any insight on this? Do I have to wait longer? I have a few other trips between Sept. 7 - Sept. 13 that I was planning to book as well over the next few days. Thanks!
I thought I’d cracked reservations, but suddenly can’t get anywhere, so hoping someone can help…trying to reserve Wien to Venice mid-June. The train we want seems not to be reservable for 3 people, though other departures are. Is this possible? from Venice to Milan a few days later, Tren Italia booking system doesn’t seem to recognise our (mobile) pass numbers. The ‘I’ help shows where to find the number on a paper pass, so wondering if that’s the issue?any guidance appreciated!
I want to start my trip from Istanbul which is not in my country of residence, and after 7 days of travel I get to France, can I use inbound day to get to my country (Italy) if it means: depart in the afternoon from France, get in an italian city in the same evening and there take a night train to my final destination?Does it matter I don’t activate my pass in Italy?
Hi there,I would like to book the night train from Bern to Ljubljana on the 10th of September (19.31-08.13).I was looking at the website for the railway in Switserland and found the trip, however it gave the following warning: This connection is not bookable online. Private customers can book this connection at the SBB Contact Center 0848 44 66 88 (CHF 0.08/min) or at the SBB Travel Center. SBB business customers (B2B) can complete the booking by filling in this form.Does this mean that I really need to call to make a reservation? Or is there another way to book this ticket in advance (assuming the SBB Travel Center is on site).Thanks in advance for the help!
Hi there! I am trying to reserve two seats in August from Paris to Barcelona and snotter two from Barcelona to Marseille. Since the paper tickets won’t arrive on time I am not sure how to proceed? I do have a friend in Barcelona. Is it a possibility that she makes the reservation for us at the train station ? I also read about calling for a reservation? :)
Good morningI have a doubt with the reservations because as Renfe (Spain) has indicated to me, to make the reservations I must activate my global pass. However, I don't know if I activate this pass so far in advance, it could expire the date of use because I have bought a 1-month global pass. could you help me?
I will travel around Europe for the first time with Interrail Pass this week.My plan starts from Krakow, and move to Warsaw, Berlin and Paris. When I checked the booking page of Interrail website, most bookings of international trains were already closed so I was worried about not taking any trains there. Can I make reservations at ticket offices in Poland and Germany even though online booking were closed?
There are some trains that you do not need a reservation, but still you can get one. Should we pay for the reservation even if it is not needed to board? What happens in the case that there are no more reservations, but these weren’t needed from the beginning? Can you still go in that train?
I bought an interrail pass to go from Brussels to Spain and Portugal and to be able to move easily without too much planning. The first destination is Valencia. Unfortunately, I see on the rail planner that there are not so many connections, and of the connections that there are, most I cannot reserve through the railplanner app and it does not clearly say how I can. I just discovered this forum now, and I am a bit lost in all the information here (like, I can book reservations for french trains through Deutsche Bahn?). Any help would be appreciated :-). For now the best plan was taking a bus to Paris, because I assumed there were no bookable trains left because the railplanner app does not show them. But apparently there might be trains that aren't shown in the app?Where/on what website/… should I check for trains, and make the reservations (Brussels-France, within France, and France-Valencia)? I can go to the international SNCB offices in Brussels South station tomorrow, if that woul
Hey all, I’m planning to go travelling with my partner on the 14th through to the 30th, as we’ve come to plan out our route we’ve had no luck finding any services that take us between the destinations we’ve selected, our route is: Athens - Istanbul - Belgrade - Sarajevo - Ljubljana - Venice - Paris - London. We’re flying from our country to start our interrail journey in Athens. Does anyone have any advice on how to go about hitting this 100% or am I dreaming, any guidance/experience shared is deeply appreciated. Warm Regards
A friend and I were planning on taking the NightJet on 22 Oct from Rome Termini to Munich (in order to get to Cologne), however it appears (on both Eurail and OBB) that NightJet (in addition to any other trains leaving Termini) is not running on weekends or currently is not scheduled for any weekends in Oct. Is this accurate or am I trying to book too early? It seems odd that the entirety of Romes rail network shuts down for an entire weekend with no significant holiday (that I’m aware of). Any advice or reasonable alternatives would be appreciated. We already purchased our passes in anticipation of being able to schedule this train, so we’d rather avoid booking flights if possible.
Hey I’m trying to book a reservation for Eurostar but it literally always shows up as booked out/ cant show prices which might be the case but I have literally checked so many trains and lots of different dates so I’m not sure here… does anyone know anything?And also do they check reservations a lot/ as in with check in or more sporadicaly?
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
Can I travel on a train that requires a seat reservation if I'm told at the station reservations aren't required? Is it possible the info on the app is wrong?
I’ve got an Interrail Global Mobile Pass. I want to travel from Ljubljana to Zagreb at 8.30am. The Interrail app tells me a seat reservation is required. However, when I tried to reserve a seat at Ljubljana station today, the lady told me seat reservations are not required for that journey. I asked if I could reserve a seat anyway, and she said that’s not possible as they don’t do any seat reservations on that train. Will I still be able to connect that journey using the app? Is it possible the information on the app is wrong or out -of-date?
So I have planned a long trip home to Sweden. I will travel night jet from Zuerich to Hamburg, arrival 07:54 the 19th. And then I had saved a train that didn’t need reservations from Hamburg to Fredericia that departed 08:56 and arrived 12:14 in Fredericia. From there I would take a train to the Copenhagen airport and from there to Stockholm. The problem is that interrail has removed the train from Hamburg to Fredericia on the 19th? This really messes up my journey because with other trains I will not make it to my train to Stockholm. The thing is also that the train still exists, for example the Deutsche Bahn website still has it. Why would I not be able to travel on my interrail on that train? Or do you think I can take the train and then just show my pass without an actual qr-code, since I will not be able to add the journey to my trip. Please help me, I’m traveling soon!!!
