Seat reservation for train originating in France
Hello and good day to you. I am looking to see the cost of reserving a Train originating in Paris, going to Garmisch/Partenkirchen. on the Eurail seat reservation it states from $104.5. Is that the price per passenger or is it for all 5 of us traveling. Please let me know, thank you.
issues booking london to Edinburgh
I have some issues with booking a ticket from london to Edinburgh on the 24th of june. Is it because those tickets simply aren't available yet? Also why can't you get the reservation on the interrail site, do you have to do it on another site? And if that's the case how do i select that i already bought an interrail and only need a seat reservation. Hope somebody can awnser me with this since im very new to this and could use some help.
advice wanted about the lack of trains between Istanbul, Sofia/Plovdiv, Thessaloniki, Skopje, Belgrade (Nis)
Hi there, I am travelling for 3 months (unlimited travel days) with The Netherlands as starting point, and wanted to go to the balkans/eastern Europe.However, when looking up trains in this area I can barely find any unfortunately. Ive seen some other topics from a while ago about this too, but I find it hard to figure out what I need to do/conclude from it. Is it better to just not go there at all as you need to take busses a lot (and those are not covered by interrail)? I’ve also read some things about there being trains in serbia and North-macedonia but just not internationally registred so it’s hard to know what the schedules are. Are there alternatives that are worth it? F.e. I saw that Romania is accessible still by a night train from budapest, and that it is possible to go from there to Sofia and then a train to halkali (Istanbul-west). Is this doable? Sorry if this is a bit vague but im new to this and really struggling with planning my trip.Thank you in advance for any help!
EuroCity seat reservation not available
Hi all,Recently purchased the Eurail Pass and can’t wait to visit Europe at the end of this month. I have added the mobile pass to m phone and got the trip set up, the QR codes even shows up already and all the travel day has been used. However, I have few confusions:There are few trips that requires seat reservation, one of them is for the trip from Switzerland to Milan using EuroCity train. Went through the OBB ticket site, the trip seems to exist but it said that the ticket is unavailable, what does this mean exactly? No more seat left? Or it’s just that it’s not available online? Do I have to book directly at the station? What happens if till the end I didn’t manage to book a reservation? Will I still be able to hop on the train and just sit randomly or will I not be allowed to board at all.Thanks and hopefully this is not a duplicated question.
Eurail Question from Paris to Luzern
I booked reservations from Paris to Luzern. It's three legs - Paris to Mulhouse, Mulhouse to Basel, then Basel to Luzern. When I bought the ticket on Eurail, the reservation on the ticket only said it was to Mulhouse. However, when I look at the ticket on my eurail account, it says "ready to board" for those last two legs. Just concerned my ticket does not reflect all of the way to Luzern.
Euronight train from Basel (Switzerland) to Praha (Czech Republic)
Hi everybody, I plan to start my interrail from Lyon (France). I have a connection at Mulhouse (France) and then Basel (Switzerland), where I want to take the Euronight train to go to Praha (Czech Republic). The departure from Basel is at 9.15 pm. The thing is I don’t see where I can book a couchette (sleeper place) for this train online. And I do not want to arrive at Basel and to have to spend the whole night in a classic seat. Anyone had the same issue ? Many thanks in advance for your help !
London to Amsterdam
Hi. We are newbie travellers at 63 & 64 yrs of age. We have purchased a Eurail pass- already regretting this. We wanted to travel direct from London to Amsterdam on the Eurostar. No seats were available so I booked the trip with a change of trains at Brussels to an Intercity train. Do we need to book this and is it included in the Eurail pass ? Can anyone give us advice please?
seat reservation query :-)
If the statement ‘no seat reservation required’ comes up, but you would still like to reserve seats, how do you go about that? I have tried a number of options, but can’t seem to access the opportunity to reserve seats unless it is recommended. I have tried on both the mobile app and the website. (We have mobile Eurail Passes.) Thanks in advance for your help.
horaires différents entre rail planner, interrail et site de la compagnie ferroviaire
ça y est pass acheté, voyage crée su rail planner, par contre au moment de la réservation des sièges je me rends compte que je ne trouve pas les mêmes horaires de trajet sur ces 3 app/sites (app rail planner, site interail, site bahn)résultat : trajet réservé sur l’appli rail planner, sièges réservés sur le site bahn mais pour des horaires différents ( 2 min de différence au départ mais moins de différences qu’avec le site interrail!!c’est le cas pour plusieurs trajetsexemple : le 30/04 un bruxelles cologne sur rail planner : bruxelles midi 10h23 - 12h15 (direct)sur interail : 10h - 12h15 (avec une correspondance!)sur bahn : 10h25 - 12h15 (direct)
Seat reservations OBB or DB
Hi everyone, I have an interail global pass and am wanting to book a couple of seat reservations on longer journeys. One journey is the 8.28am Wien HBF to Munich on 28 July and the other is Buchloe 9.36am to Zurich Hb on 1st August.It looks like it’s 9euros to use DB for reservations or 12euros to use OBB - am I doing it correct? (it’s for 2 adults and 2 kids) I’ve booked the DB one already (seat reservation only) from Buchloe to Zurich. I didn’t need to enter anywhere that I have an interrail pass - is this right? Juat thought I’d check before I make the reservation for the Wien to Munich train using DB. Thanks in advance!

Purchasing a Eurail Pass and then getting reservations
We are two seniors from Canada who will arrive in Southampton on September 8 (after completing a cruise) and wish go from Southampton (presumably via London) to Paris on the same day. We can depart Southampton by 9 AM. After getting to Paris and spending a couple of days, we wish to train from Paris on September 11 and go to Luxemburg. Then, after a river cruise, we wish to go from Basel to Lucerne on September 19 and then, the next day on September 20 from Lucerne to Zurich. We do recognize that, after purchasing the pass, we need to separately purchase reservations. Are there agents who can do all this for us? Any assistance would be appreciated. Ross and Maureen

Booking reservations for Swedish trains - Prices temporarily unavailable
Hello dear community,the question came up a few times, but I still need help.In Summer, I am on tour with our scout group to Sweden and want to book reservation for Swedish trains. But for most of the stuff I get the above-mentioned message.This happens for example for Koeln to Uppsala on the 18.07 or the 25.07. etc.I also can only use the interrail site, because I ordered paper passes (we try to use our smartphone not, if possible in our scout group), but since they haven’t arrived yet, I do not know the number of the passes.Is there any possibility to fix this issue or get the pass numbers early?Thank you :)
How do I order a sleep train with Eurail Scandinavia Pass
Hi, I assume that I have to pay extra if I want a sleep train even though I have Eurail Scandinavia Pass, anyone have a picture of how do I order a sleep train with the pass? Is there an option of choosing a sleeping compartment when I make registration on the rail planner app? Thank you so much!
Boarding at next station - Can I board at Florence instead of Rome? - Trenitalia FRECCIAROSSA
Hello Eurail Experts,I am planning to travel from Rome to Venice. I already reserved the seats for Rome to Venice. As a plan B, I would like to visit Pisa and board the same train from Florence. Is this allowed in Trenitalia FRECCIAROSSA. Will my seat reservations still valid if I board at Florence instead of Rome?Thanks in advance!
Can't buy Plovdiv Halkali reservation in plovdiv
Hi everyone :)I've been to plovdiv's train station office to buy a reservation for the Sofia Istanbul express night train (which stops in plovdiv) but there they told me they couldn't sell reservations because of an informatic issue in there system.From what I've read online and especially on this forum, there is no way of getting a reservation online. If you know otherwise I'd love to know!What they seem to tell me to do is to get on the train and buy a reservation on board. At least that's what I understood because I don't speak bulgarian and they didn't really speak English.That makes me a little worried to do so, especially in the case where there's no more available couchettes on the train. So I was wondering if anyone had already done this, or if you could think of any another way to get a reservation Thanks in advance!Sohel
Check-in closing time for boarding the last Eurostar for the day.
Hello everybody!Newbie question regarding Eurostar from Paris to London…Planning on taking the last train from Paris Nord to London St Pancras (ES9063) departing at 21:13 hrs. My flight into Paris arrives approximately 18:00 hrs whch gives me only about 3 hours including customs, baggage collection & transport from CDG to Paris Nord. Can someone tell if that will be cutting it too close to catch the last train (ES9063)?Also, what is the check-in closing time for Eurostar? If it makes any difference, I am in France on an Indian passport; travelling on UK Tourist/Schengen Visa and a Global Eurail Pass. Thanks in advance for your time…
Regarding reserving TGV from Lyon Part Dieu to Bruxelles
Hello. I am trying to reserve a seat going from Lyon Part Dieu to Bruxelles-Midi using Eurail Pass. However, somehow, I cannot find a way to use a pass to reserve in the website. When looked into the reservation site on Eurail, the site only appeared as “seat reservation required” not as ‘Prices Unavailable” error. Is there any way I can use the pass for the reservation? Thank you
Night train 1st class with VY?
Hello,I posted a few days ago regarding availability of the night train from Stockholm to Narvik on December 11th. We have continued to check the schedules every day and this morning tickets are available!! (YAY!) My next question, why are there no 1st class berths available? Am I searching incorrectly? Is it possible that the train only has 2nd class private sleeper berths? We are ok with 2nd class, but the private bathroom offered in 1st class would be our preference if it is available. Am I missing something? I’ve checked on both Vy and SJ. Any help is appreciated!
