How can i travel from Madrid ---Barcelona---Perpignon in Regional Trains? Where can i check the timetables for train : Madrid -- Barcelona Barcelona--Perpignon Are all the regional trains of RENFE/SNCFA trains covered by Eurorail pass , which means i don’t have to pay extra for these trains ?
I’m an inter-railing rookie. I am travelling in a family group of five in August. Our kids are older and hence will have their mobile pass on their own phones. Can I make seat reservations for the five us of us to sit together and then pass the reservation details onto them?I will buy all the mobile passes and then send onto them.Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance
Hello,i am very disappointed by the seat reservation system, especially in Paris. Why did i buy an Interrail Pass for 251€, only to pay for all trains again?From Paris for almost all Trains you have to book a seat reservation before boarding. Problem is: The booking website does not work. So we had to go to the ticket office at Paris Est, stand there in a line for 45 minutes only to be told that our train is already full and all other trains this day are booked out as well. Our only option was to board the train anyway and buy the reservation in the train, where it costs twice as much - while we had to sit on the floor anyway.For our trip to Paris we paid 20€ per Person and for the journey back it was 35€ per Person - while we also paid 251€ for the Interrail Pass. We thought with Interrail we could travel spontaniously and we would not have to pay for every train once again!Please fix your reservation website as soon as possible!For anyone planning a trip right now: If your trains nee
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help. I am flying from Rome to Barcelona to save travel days. Can I add a journey when i land in barcelona without joining it to Rome. I planned on doing my route to Rome and then just starting again in Barcelona - is this possible? Or will I need to start another “Trip” in the app and start there?
Hi Interrailers,I have a question. How can I make a seat reservation for the train between Lyon and Barcelona? I am based in Amsterdam and it is for the 15th of April. I have already read a lot of tips, like calling the DB, NMBS, Renfe and SNCF. I have spoken to them all and no one can help me so I hope one of you had the golden tip!Last option is to ask a friend of mine who lives in France to book it for me, but is that an option? Can someone else buy it for me and send it by post?
Hey there,I already have contacted the customer support, but in the email they said that they would get back within 2 days :/Here is the problem: I have booked two reservations for my trip that is tomorrow, hence the urgency of the problem. The payment worked well and I received an E-mail with the payment confirmation but NO E-Ticket.…I really don't know what to do as I have to depart tomorrow...
Hi everyone! New Eurail couple here and we are super confused about the seat “Reservation” required on most of our selected trains in our trip for MAY 2022….either the Eurail app says to do it “at station” and on countries’ train website it says “reservation impossible”also, the Eurail and countries train websites times, are often different …..Am I reading too much into this or is this difficult to get in sync?Are long night-train cabins worth it and how long before a trip can those be reserved?
It is almost impossible to make reservations through the website for the last 4 days. Every time I get the message “ A problem repeatedly occurred on …… “. I tried everything from clearing the cache, rebooted my device and using different browsers. It was working before and I was able to book some trains.I have a pass and trying to book seat reservation any help is very much appropriated. There is no customer support link in Eurail website. This is very frustrating
I’m concerned about the connections between Paris-Lucern-Zermatt-Milan-Venice. It’s multiple countries, trains and connections. I haven’t purchased our Eurail yet, plan to soon, but will I need to book each section AND pay the reservation fee for each leg of the trip? We will be staying one night in Lucern and 2 nights in Zermatt. I’m really excited about taking the Glacier Express for the Zermatt to Brig section then on to Milan and Venice. Any advise & tips would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
Hi!I need to make seat reservations from Stavanger to Oslo 19th of April at 22:35. Unfortunately, I can't make the reservations I don´t know why. I've tried this multiple times over the last couple of days. Can you please help me? It's quite urgent. Hope you can help me, thank you.
Dear Interrail community,I need to make seat reservations from Milan to Bern for the EC leaving at the 7th of March at 11am. Unfortunately, I can't make the reservations here in Parma as the train station isn't large enough to do this. Now I wanted to book the seats via your website, but it's since a couple of days the reservation page is so slow, it takes me half an hour just to type in the "Milan" as a starting point (30min is not over exaggerated; I've tried this multiple times over the last couple of days). Therefore, I haven't been able to complete a booking, but I need a reservation on the train. Can you please help me? It's quite urgent. (Also, if you could fix that bug on your website, that would also do the trick.) Hope you can help me,Maxi
Booking seat reservation from Paris to Barcelona on the day of departure at the station. Can I secure a seat?
Hi! I have a 10 day Global Pass and am trying to book my seat reservation from Paris to Barcelona on March 17, 2022. It appears my current option is only a paper pass (which wouldn’t arrive soon enough) so I will need to make this reservation at the Paris Gare de Lyon station. The issue is that I will not be able to get to the station until the morning of the 17th, only a few hours before the train to Barcelona is scheduled to depart. What is the likelihood that I will be able to secure a seat? Is it possible to secure day-of seat reservations?
Outside of summer season, it is possible to book reservations spontaneously? Is there an exception to inbound/outbound rule for transition countries?
Hey Interrailers,I am planning to do an Europe Trip with roughly this route: Berlin-Vienna-Prague-Budapest-Ljubljana-Florence-Rome-Naples-Nicce-Barcelona-Paris-Amsterdam-CopenhagenI have two questions concerning my Interrail Trip:The first one is about reservations. I am planning to do the trip during March to May and I am pretty sure that it won´t be such a big issue to make reservations for various trains spontaneously e.g. at the train stations (mainly Italy, Spain and France as reservations are most of the time obligatory in these countries). As I a not travelling during summer, it is possbile to book reservations spontaneously as trains are not that busy during off-season/spring am I right? Nevertheless, I have read a lot about the problem that sometimes reservartions need to be printed out and this would be quite difficult to do if you are already in another country. Sadly, I found no answer to that question:)The second one is about the outbound/inbound rule: I planned to visit
Hello, I am trying to reserve 4 train tickets for the TGV 9702 TGV INOUI from Barcelona-Sants to Paris Gare de Lyon on the 2. of August at 10:00 am. I think these reservations are only available as paper tickets.If I try to make the reservation on the eurrail/interrail website it tells me that the amount of available seats is unknown. How can I reserve seats, if the website doesn't know how many seats there are?Also I read on a different page that reservations for Spain can only be done at train stations, so how is it possible to do one on the website? I am very confused and would be grateful for some help.
Hello, I have a problem because I really need to do some reservations for next week, but the reservation tool on the website doesn't work and I can't do it in the app as well. And I can't do it on any other website nor will I have the time to buy it at the station. The website just does not load or closes itself again and again when I try to write the directions. Can you help me please! It is urgent
We want to travel to a family wedding in May. Leaving England on May 25th - travelling by Eurostar to hopefully Paris. I think the night in Paris and then a look around the following day would be good. We really need to be as close to the wedding venue - 25mins outside of Verona Italy on the Friday night so we can easily get to the wedding venue the following day.We are at the wedding venue on the Saturday and Sunday night (28th and 29th) but will need to get back to England on June 1st.So we’re looking for suggestions about 26th and 27th and then travel back. We’re not necessarily looking for the cheapest but would like interesting.Many ThanksPS One traveller is over 60 the other just below
Hello, I think about travelling from Berlin up to Lisboa with a day stop/over night in Paris and Madrid (or Night train Madrid-Lisboa) by using a Global Pass in spring. I spent really a lot of time by using the Planner App and or this website - but failed... Is there any way (Service center? Whatever...) to have a working connection put together completely (train connection plus reservation (if absolutely necessary))?Thanks,Ber
Hello! I am trying to figure out where/when my Global pass is valid (prior to purchasing) and when I use the train schedule/timetable page on the Eurail site, the left side of the page is red and says, “pass not valid” and the right side is green and says, “you’re ready to board”. I am confused...may I use the Global pass or not? Thank you so much! And...below is my hopeful use of trains with the Global Pass. Any insider knowledge on the validity of the pass or how to use the pass on the following journeys is greatly welcomed!Cambridge, UK to Edinburgh, ScotlandEdinburgh to Brussels, BelgiumBrussels to Grindelwald, SwitzerlandGrindelwald to Vienna, AustriaVienna to Freudenstadt, GermanyFreudenstadt to Mons, BelgiumMons to ParisParis to LondonTHANK YOU!
