Hello! A small group I am with and I all bought 1st class Eurail Global passes. Tomorrow, (we’ll actually today since it is almost 2am), we each got mobile tickets to travel from Nord Paris to London. It says that we need a seat reservation but every time I’ve tried to get one it says it’s not available and it could be from being sold out. If that is the case how am I able to have the ticket? When we go to scan our ticket will it not work? Or will we just not have a reserved seat? And if we aren’t going to be allowed to travel, what should I do? I hope this makes sense the way I’m explaining it. Also it said the seat reservation would be free since we were first class, I guess I’m just confused and nervous and not sure what to do. Please help, thank you :) Kaylee
Hi My Eurail journey between Genoa and Milan is via Torino. I have 20 minutes to change stations in Torino between P.Susa to P.Nuova. Is this enough? Is the Metro the best option to connect? As an alternative are there likely to be plenty of taxis available outside P.Susa station around 1:30 pm in the afternoon or will there be long queues? Any advice from people who have travelled this route would be greatly appreciated. We will be travelling on a Monday in September.
Hi, I have been trying to book 4 tickets from Paris (Gare de Lyon) to Barcelona-Sants on the 23rd of December (at 10:14 am). Every time I try to checkout to pay, the website tells me that there is an error and that I have to find other options. I tried to book in every train on the same day and on the next day, but still the error message appears. Is there any other way to book those seats?
I will be traveling through Europe in a little less than a month. Today as I was trying to purchase the paper reservation ticket for a trip from Paris-Barcelona, I noticed that the estimated arrival date of these tickets by mail was November 21, which is 3 days after I will have left for my trip. Is one month an accurate estimation of how long it would take for this paper reservation to arrive? Or will I be okay to get the reservation in the Paris station a few days before I need to leave for Barcelona?
Hello,I too am trying to book on b-europe.com but don’t have a pass cover number for my mobile eurail pass.I understand that eurail is - like everyone else! - struggling with staffing issues and high demand.But it’s been two days since I sent a message… I’m starting to get anxious that I won’t be able to reserve seats when it’s so tantalizingly close.Could anyone monitoring the board could please give me advice?Many thanks,Dave
I am in USA and want to make a train reservation for a part of my trip. By time I get to Spain the train will probably be full or have no Eurail seats left. I see that I cannot make the reservation from the Eurail website or app. I saw somewhere that I can reserve directly with TGV using a cover pass number but when I go to the TGV website I don’t see how to do that. Has anyone done this?
I have purchased a 1 month 3 day interrail pass for mysefl, wife and 2 children to use on our trip to France in the summer. We need to travel from Paris to Bordeaux for a week and then return just over a week later. If I try and reserve seats on the trains between Paris and Bordeaux on the Eurail website it is telling me that none are available. It says prices are not available and that passholder seats could be sold out. I can see through travel.b-europe that there are reservations on trains that I would like to travel on but that seems to only allow booking for Paper passes and I have mobile passes. I’ve tried contacting support through email but have not had a response yet and it’s been over a week. Are there any other ways to book these reservations? We have limited flexibility so I don’t want reservations to sell out on the trains we want to go on. Anyone got any ideas?
Hello there,my boyfriend and I have recently bought the interrail Greek island pass for six days. Now we want to make reservations on Greek domestic roots. We called the call centre in Athens (number from the flyer +30 210 8919800), they told us we need a certain number that verifies our Greek island pass. Where can I find this number? It should begins with an I followed by several numbers. Kind regardskiki
I have activated my eurail global pass, but every time I try to make reservations on the eurail website the page will not load. On the rare occasion that it does load there are often no prices listed and I cannot add tickets to my cart. I can see the train routes and prices that I am looking for on the app. Is this an issue with the eurail website and is there a way to fix it?
I bought first class passes for my son and I to travel from London to Munich, then Munich to Paris, and Paris back to London, yet no matter what I try, we’re unable to book from London across to even begin our journey. It keeps telling me I might have to buy a full fare ticket despite already buying first class passes for almost $1000. I don’t know what to do because we leave this Wednesday and I’ve been trying to get a hold of Eurail by phone for 2 weeks. Their response by email took a week and only said they’d try to be able to contact me within a week. We’re flying over Wednesday. Help please!

I don’t know how to do it anymore.Thank you for your helpJean-Luc
Missing itinerary in Eurail site - 7/30 NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam missing from search, but 7/30 NJ402 Zurich to Utrecht is reservable?
I am planning on doing my reservations using a 5 day/1 month Eurail pass and one of the legs is to take OBB Nightjet from Zurich to Amsterdam on 7/30. I see NJ402 servicing this route on 7/30 from Zurich to the Netherlands.However I do not see NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam as an option when searching on Eurail’s site. Checking OBB’s site and Trainline I do see NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam route as an option, but Eurail’s site only shows NJ402 going from Zurich to Utrecht. Is this a bug in the website? I don’t want to book Zurich to Utrecht; I want Zurich to Amsterdam and clearly NJ402 goes towards Amsterdam Centraal but for some reason the site does not list it as an option.Alternatively is it possible to reserve not on Eurail’s site for train days valid on a Eurail pass? I guess if I can reserve elsewhere and circumvent Eurail’s site that might work but I wanted to reserve all the seats I needed to on Eurail’s site out of convenience.
HelloWe are travelling around Europe with the global pass. We are trying to book seat reservations from Paris to Montpellier, but it seems every train is sold out. Is this a mistake on the website or is it actually possible that every train the next month is fully booked.
Hace un mes rellené el formulario para participar en el sorteo del viaje del Inter Rail y me tocó. El caso es que yo elegí la opción de viajar con amigos pero no encontré ningún sitio en la web para incluirlos en mi viaje y creo que debería haberlo hecho. No entiendo por que si debería haberlos incluido (puesto que elegí el viaje en grupo) no me saltó ningún aviso o incompatibilidad de que no había añadido a ningún amigo a mi viaje. ¿Hay alguna forma de habiendo elegido el viaje en grupo pero no habiendo añadido a mis amigos los pueda incluirlos ahora de alguna forma?
Hi,I’m trying to book seat reservations on the 9:12 from Prague to Budapest on October 8th. On the horrid Eurail app it says seat reservations necessary, on the ghastly eurail website it says ticket not available and on OBB it says seat reservation not necessary…..any idea which one is correct, oy!
We are a family of 5 interrailing for the first time this summer. Really looking forward to it :-)For some trains it was easy to make a reservation, but there are a few where it is not possible via the app. So I thought lets ask a question to the more experienced interrailers.Do you think we can reserve seats at the station in Berlin on 9 July? The traintrips we have planned are: Berlin - Krakow (12 July), Budapest - Split (19 July), Split - Ljubljana (26 July). Thanks so much for your reply 🙏🏼
Hello,I bought a mobile pass. I would like to make my first reservation for Paris - Barcelona. However, when I try to reserve a seat, I have no choice but to receive my ticket in "paper format" which will be sent to my home address at a cost of 9€. I don’t understand why ? I chose the mobile pass to have the tickets directly on my phone...Thanks in advance! Bonjour, J’ai acheté un pass mobile. Je souhaite faire ma première réservation pour le trajet Paris - Barcelone. Cependant, lorsque j’essaie de réserver un siège, je n’ai pas d’autre choix que de recevoir mon ticket en “format papier” qui sera envoyé à mon domicile au coût de 9€. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi ? Merci d’avance!
