Hi to everyone! We are a family of 3 & plan to get the EuroRail Pass to cover different countries in Europe. We plan to get 1st class (for cross border routes) & 2nd class (for within the country routes). May I get clarifications & suggestions on the following:If the route does not require seat reservation, will we still need booking or reservation for the trip? Or we can just board the train & choose any seats. In such case, how do we know the seats are not reserved? Can seat reservations be done done online (unless otherwise specified)? There are some routes that require some kind of “tariff or supplemental fee” How much are these generally and where can these fees be seen. There are some routes with limited EuroRail allocation. How can we ensure we can get into such trip using the EuroRail pass. In case you miss the train where you have a seat reservation, can you use it for another time slot? Is it advisable to make the seat reservation considering the cost? What ar
Hello,I live in France and I've bought a one country pass for 3 days in Italy. I've also activated my pass on Rail Planner and it gives me 3 QR codes for 3 trip that I planned. Is that my final tickets or I have to book for reservation?I saw that trains that I'll take needs reservations, but I still don't know how to do the reservations. Is there anyway I can do it online or I must book reservation at the train station or call centre? Or can I do it somewhere in France?Thank you for your time,Have a nice trip,Mei
If you travel 1st class (also interrail), you can choose your seat on the TGV, normally.Due to the fact that SNCF no longer makes it possible to book domestic train journeys online in France for Interrail, I (temporarily? ) have the following question:If you contact the call center of SNCB INTERNATIONAL in Belgium, 0.30 euros/min(!) , would they also be able to book the desired seat or not?I think I've done it once, but it took a lot of effort.
Hi, I am trying to make a reservation for the nighttrain from Paris, Austerlitz to Port Bou (Spain) for the 4th of Aug. via the reservation tool, however it says that it is not possible anymore to make reservations via the tool.Same counts for our travel back home when I try to book Barcelona - Paris Gare de Lyon (17th of Aug)…Should I call to sncf or renfe or can this be solved otherwise? Thanks in advance!
Hey, I‘m struggling on booking seat reservations for the TGV in France. I‘m on the Website of french railway and clicked the Box „Seat reservation (I already have a pass)“ but when I continue I can only book complete tickets. Where can I book Seat reservations only? I want to go from Paris to Marseille and from Nice to Paris. Thanks in advance!

It is very unfortunate that TGV LYRIA is charging outrageously expensive prices for the journey from Bellegarde (FR) to Geneva (CH)Paris - Bellegarde = 10 euros (1st class and 2nd class)Paris - Geneva = 27 euros (2nd class) and 57 euros (!) euros (1st class)For a ride of +- 30 minutes such a big price difference ... between Bellegarde - Geneva.
I have logged into my account on eurail.com and want to make seat reservations except the self reservation tool doesn’t appear. Every time I load the page it shows up with the instructions to “use the timetable below” to make the reservation except that said timetable doesn’t appear. I have searched all over the website and can’t seem to find the tool. Am I doing something wrong? Will it only appear within three hours of a trip I’ve added to my pass? For reference I am using an iPhone and have tried both on safari and google chrome to no avail.
Hi everybodyDoes anyone know if there are night trains in France and Italy?If so, do you perhaps know which routes these run on? For example from station... to station...And do you know if these countries have night trains that come in the country and leave the country?If yes, do you perhaps know from which countries these come in and or to which countries they drive out?

Bonsoir! J’ai une question très urgente : mon copain et moi commencions à réserver nos billets pour notre tour d’Europe pensant les avoir pour notre départ samedi 17 juillet 2021. Cependant un problème se pose : en Pologne ainsi qu’en Hongrie, les é-tickets n’existent pas. Á cause des restrictions fréquentes dues au Covid, nous avons dû réserver à la dernière minute nos billets et nous n’avons plus le temps de les recevoir par la poste chez nous en version papier. Que faire dans ce cas là ? Pouvons nous les commander et aller les chercher sur place ? HELP 🥲😊
Hi, we want to take the night train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi for which a reservation is required. When I choose the connection on interrail.eu there’s only one possibility (“IRT 2 class” for 24€). I suppose that this is the price for a normal seat. However we prefer to have our own compartment. I had a look at the VR website. There you can choose such a cabin for 179€. Unfortunately we haven’t found a way that “interrail” is taken into account. That’s why I have these questions:Is there a way to book a reservation for a cabin on interrail.eu? Is there a way to get the cabin cheaper with the “interrail-code” on the VR website? Or do we have to pay the full price without using our Interrail Pass? Greetings from GermanyHagen & Nadine
Hello all, I have read a lot of information on using the mobile app and occasionally see a reference to certain trains required printed reservations and/or tickets so my question is: Will I ever need to print either a ticket or reservation? if I do have to print one, how will I be able to print? Thanks again for the expertise of all who are far more knowledgeable than me. 😃Glenn
Hello Fellow Travelers!I am having difficulty finding a quick train ride from Florence to Venice for September 24th both on Eurail and Trenitalia. Would you happen to know if train schedules will be updated or the reason for this? Thanks in advance for your help.
hello everyone, i just noticed that the train options on the interrail website are different from the train options on the interrail app. i’m a first time traveler and i’m very scared to be stuck in a place i don’t know because the train i thought i could take doesn’t exist. does anyone have tips? do i need to make sure that every train i take is on the website and in the app?
