Hello,yesterday I’ve bought a seat reservation for a train ICE 9558 (Mannheim → Paris Est). I thought there’ll be an option to choose where I’d like to seat after pay, anyway it chose me random seat right in the couch 22. I’m travelling with my girlfriend who doesn’t have an Interrail pass, but every train I saw yet had an option to choose where exactly I’d like to seat. When I tried to buy tickets for her on the https://bahn.com (Deutsche Bahn site) I wasn’t able to select the seat and the same for SNCF, they didn’t tell me the seat before I buy it. I’m afraid that if I buy two random seats and the train will be full, there’ll be no way to seat next to each other. Also, she’s getting sick when seated somewhere else than next to the window and in the direction of the travel. Is there anything I can do? Or at least can I refund my “random selected” ticket? The ticket (22/42) isn’t even in the direction of the travel as it seems from this only available plan of the couch https://www.va
I learned the hard way how to increase chances for 2 seats together on Eurostar trains. However, before learning how to do this, my partner and I reserved seats on a Eurostar train with seats in totally separate coaches. Is there any way to change an existing seat reservation for a train in early October to have 2 seats together. Thank you. Michael
Hello, i have a problem. I have made reservation for the train from Venice Italy 4th of august to Nice Ville in France. I have made reservations for the train that leaves on 13:48 and arrives on 22:30. With 2 stops at milano and Ventimiglia. when i was checking the platfoms on the OBB site this train does not come up anymore, but it is still in the railplanner app and i have the reservations. Does anyone have any experience with this? thanks!!
Hello I am new to Interrail and have never used it before so please bear with my lack of knowledge 😅. In a few months i would like to travel from Germany to London (using ICE then Eurostar) and then back from London through France to Offenburg (using Eurostar then TGV), now the second route is exceptionally expensive and last search showed a price of 300 Euros per person! And the whole journey to and back from London is somewhere around 500 Euros for one person My question is: can one be sure that Interrail really covers such routes with expensive tickets without problems? Thanks
Does the ÖBB Reservierungsrabatt 50% discount on reservations work for Eurail passes?Does the discount work on night trains? or just the seat reservation component, not the couchette/sleeper feeDoes it work on Italian trains that can be booked on OBB website? ÖBB Reservierungsrabatt-50 % discount on seat reservations on long-distance trains.
We bought a global eurail pass and will be arriving at Heathrow and taking a train to Paddington on our way to Bath. I am fairly certain the Pass does not cover the Heathrow Express but does cover the Elizabeth Line. At Heathrow, how, specifically, do you validate the Eurail Global Pass to ride the Elizabeth Line? It doesn’t seem like the travel planner feature of the app includes the Elizabeth Line . Do we have to stop at a ticket window to validate the pass for this trop?

Hello 😊With my girlfriend, we are traveling around the Easter Europe. We wanted to book a night-train between Budapest and Bucharest and we don't know how to connect the pass Interrail on the Hungarese train website.When we choose the trip on the Interrail App, it's 5€ but on the Hungarese website, we see we have to pay 60€ ... Sorry for my English and thank you in advance ! Have a nice day 😊
Moin,ich hatte meine Rückfahrt am Samstag geplant gehabt und hatte schon eine gute Route. Ich wollte dann etwas in der DB anschauen und es fiel mir auf das dieser IC 60470 ein Nachtzug ist. Ich hatte die Route extra genommen gehabt weil ich keine Sitzplatzreservierungen unternehmen möchte. Ist das notwendig für den NJ jetzt noch eine Reservierung zu buchen oder kann ich auch ohne einsteigen? (Ich kann zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt keine mehr buchen) LG
It is my first time using online bookings, so I’m not sure about things, so I’ve got questions I’ve reserved seats only, and it doesn’t give me any QR or anything unlike my previous bookings like Eurostar or SNCF. Do I just use the Eurail pass QR when I get on the train, and when they require I show the Eurail pass and the seat reservation code? I’ve made bookings with both “anytime single” and “advance single”. Is it ok, ie, does the pass work with both booking types? I cannot modify the seats on the train time or date, or even the seats. Am I not supposed to be able to change or cancel the reservation at all? What happens if I reserve a seat and actually don’t get on the train, like with unexpected delays prior to the ride? Will there be any penalities? Thank you very much.
Does anyone know the extension for the RENFE number to speak to someone in English? I have tried calling the number but am unable to go through on my personal phone. When I previously called in my home country I had no problem getting through and speaking to someone. I have tried using a friend’s phone and can only get to an automated Spanish line and am having trouble figuring out how to switch it to English. Otherwise does anyone have advice for making the reservations for Barcelona to Madrid and Madrid to Lisbon?
I have a continuous 1st Class Interrail Pass and I want to take the 08.22 EC273 from Brno to Gdansk on Saturday 15th July (tomorrow). I went to the information desk at Brno train station yesterday to make reservations for the two legs of the journey which involve Polish trains and successfully bought a reservation for the Krakow-Gdańsk leg. However, the Czech lady I spoke to at the desk indicated that it was not possible to purchase a reservation for part-Polish section (Breclav-Krakow) of the Brno-Krakow leg of the journey.Can I still board the train and travel to Krakow without a seat reservation if I am prepared to stand all the way?If not, am I able to exchange or get reimbursed for the reservation I paid for (Krakow-Gdańsk) in order to make my journey on another date when I can reserve seats for the entirety of the Polish sections of the Brno-Gdańsk trip?
Hola, quiero realizar un viaje a Francia desde Madrid, que es mi lugar de residencia. Mi idea es coger un AVE de Madrid a Barcelona y luego el INOUI desde Barcelona a Paris. Me parece entender que con el one country pass de Francia no podría reservar el AVE, pero el INOUI si aunque salga de Barcelona? Y con el global pass podría reservar los dos? Y si puedo reservar los dos, debo realizar los dos trayectos el mismo día, o puedo pasar una noche en Barcelona? Esto último teniendo en cuenta que cuenten dos días de viaje claro.También podría hacer el viaje desde Madrid a Irún y de Hendaya a Paris, pero básicamente mis preguntas son las mismas, excepto que entiendo que el tren que sale de Hendaya si puedo reservarlo porque pertenece a Francia.Muchas gracias.
Hello, I'm going to buy my interrail global pass with Renfe.After that, how can I do to book the different trains that I want? I have to do that in the renfe app or I have to do that in this rail planner app?If it's the second one, will I need the code of my interrail pass or what things will I need?
