Hi , holding a French Eurail pass and unable to make seat reservations for trains to/from Trouville/Deauville and Paris. Eurail website site shows reservations are required but unavailable but this cannot be correct as showing same for next 2 months - obviously a glitch with the system. Any help appreciated. thank you
I’ve booked a six-berth couchette on a sleeper from Toulouse to Paris this summer. I’m wondering if there’s any way to upgrade it to a four-berth, because there are four of us travelling and it would be great to have privacy. It didn’t seem to be an option when I booked (maybe because my interrail pass is standard class). Anyone have any experience of changing a booking like that?
Hey,we have 2 Global Mobile Passes and would also like to use them to travel with our dog within Italy. We would also like to tike the Intercity Notte (Rome-Messina). How can we buy a ticket for our dog? Trenitalia and Italiarail only allow us to buy a dog ticket when we buy a human ticket at the same time which is more expensive than the reservation. Also we would not be able to be in the same compartment due to there being separate bookings.How in the world can we book a ticket for our dog on an Intercity Notte (or any other Italian train other than slower, regional ones where dogs travel for free)?
Hello!I recently booked the 1 month continuous travel plan and am looking to start travelling on the 20th June, however I cannot book train tickets through my interrail account as I have an apostrophe in my name which was accepted onto the pass but the website won’t accept ‘special characters’!Any help would be hugely appreciated as the phones are always too busy to be answered and emailing has not been successful as of yet.Thank you in advance!
I’m hoping to travel from Faro to Lisbon, and the eurail app says a reservation is required, but I have to make that reservation in person at the train station. To me, this seems risky, because what if the train is full by the time I get to the station? This is the only train I can take, so I can’t risk it being full.Has anyone ever had issues with a train they were hoping to reserve being full by the time they got to the station? Is there any way to avoid this risk? I have a mobile pass, by the way, if that changes anything.
Hello. For my first day of the trip I have paid for a seat reservation on the route Prague- Warszawa, euronight EN443 Prague 22:05 Warszawa Gdańska 08:52. When I want to enter this connection in the route planner, it is not offered in the Interrail app. So I don't know how to proceed to make everything work properly. Thanks for the reply. Karel Patak
Hello. This year my friends and I purchased the interrail global pass. We are trying to get to Budapest from Athens, but because the railways modernization of Serbia and problems with the scheduel in Bucarest, we are trying to find a route that avoids those places. Is there any way this is possible? Thank you so much :)
I’m leaving to go travelling in just over two weeks and the Interrail website keeps malfunctioning when I try booking seat reservations! It won’t let me press the ‘review my order’ button, there is either an error warning sign that pops up or the webpage just stays stuck. I’ve tried booking on three different devices and none of them will work. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else, if you have any advice or maybe the contact details for Interrail, because none of the numbers I’ve found online seem to work?
I see that Interrail pass holders get a 30% discount on the Flåm railway in Norway. However, I don’t see any way to book discounted tickets in advance. It’s not possible on the Interrail app. The Flåm railway website redirects to www.norwaysbest.com which only sells full price round-trip tickets. It tells you to book on vy.no for single tickets but that website of course does not do Interrail discounts. Any ideas? Turning up at the ticket office in midsummer hoping for availability is too risky.
@hhilppaa to keep the “How to get reservations” post clean i will answer here.For which date are you looking?Did you follow the Nighttrain reservation manual?I just tried a booking for Friday the 15th July and iam able to reserve with the Interrail/Eurail discount how ever just one berth in a tripple sleeper compartment is left (the train is very popular especially during the Holidays in Slovakia& Austria)
I am looking to book a National Express coach from London Victoria coach station after departing from the eurostar. There is guidance about how long to arrive before the journey but nothing about how long to allow to get off the eurostar to st pancras! How long would you say would be safe enough?
Please let me know if you have any issues with the App:no issues some issues a lot of issues!! also, what type of phone (iPhone, Android, etc.) you are using the version of the App you are running.I have a new iPhone 13 Pro Max (iOS version 15.4.1; app version 23.1.0) and the App will NOT save my journeys. It’ll save the first journey but I’m unable to save any others to the trip. (Sometimes, it’ll save another journey, but if I close and reopen the App, the additional journeys have disappeared.)I bought 2 (2 Day Flexi Pass) Eurail France Passes. I have added then in the App, connected one pass to my trip (I added my husband’s pass in my App but haven’t connected the pass yet). I haven’t activated either pass.I’m hoping the information we gather in one thread could help Eurail in some way. I searched and read through other posts and I’d like to hear from the community to maybe narrow down which of us are having issues and why... The only way to know is to also hear from members of the
Hi All, is anyone can help me. How to find a train from Portbou to Barcelona? Since I can’t see the train route in any website. I thought it’s the cheapest way to get Barcelona from france area. Is anyone have any experience with this route? how much is the ticket price from Portbou to Barcelona?
Hello! My parents and I are taking a trip to Europe next week. We purchased a 1st class EURail pass and have been booking the train rides that require reservations. Toward the end of our trip, we are taking night trains. I saw there are multiple sleeping arrangements available for purchase on the night trains. Could someone explain the difference between the 1st class 3 person sleeper and the 2nd class 3 person sleeper? For another one of our train rides, there is not a 3 person sleeper available and there is only a 4-person berth available for the night train. If we purchase the 4-person berth, will they fill the 4th spot or is there a way we could get the 4 person berth for only three of us? Also, will my dad be separated from my mom and I on gender-specific berths? Thanks so much!
Hi, I just booked seat reservations from Amsterdam to Nice and Nice to Wien, and the total of my cart was at 118 euro. As I was getting to point where I pressed “Agree to terms and conditions” the price recalculated and shot up to 266 euro, more than double. What the fuck? I am already super disappointed in how much the mandatory seat reservations cost to the point where I’m thinking why did I even buy the pass? What’s the point of the pass if the seat reservations end up costing as much as the pass?
Hello,I have created a trip on the mobile phone app. I have now gone to reserve seat but it seems that the times of trains are different to the times on my trip. Then one journey just doesn’t exist on the reservation website. What am I supposed to do?For example- On my trip in the mobile app- July 31st- Torino Porte Susa to via Bologne to Arezzo- 8.10am arriving 13.09.When reserving the seats on the website the train is Torino Porta Susa via Firenze to Arezzo- 8.50am arriving 13.09 Different reservation price, long journey to connect in Firenze- not what we want to do. But the first train just does not exist on the reservation site. Really frustrating. Has anyone had any of these issues? Many thanks for any advice.Chris.
As part of the trip my husband and I are planning, we want to take the train from Vienna to Istanbul (and back).I’ve done a lot of searching for the routes, and while I’m not yet sure of what our stopovers on this pair of long train trips will be, I do know that the trip is likely to involve trains between Vienna and Budapest that require reservations as well as trains between Budapest and Craiova and/or a train from Craiova to Vienna that also require reservations.The Eurail.com site indicates reservations will be mailed to my US address by registered mail. How long roughly does this take? 2 weeks? or 2 months? I ask because we will be flying to Europe on June 20, and I’d hate to buy reservations only to have them not get delivered in time.As a second question, I also have noticed that the information about international train between Sofia, Bulgaria and Istanbul, Turkey don’t seem to be available from Eurail.com and the “more information” seems to indicate that you need to buy the
I have purchased a global pass with my family. As the interrail.eu website was a mess during thepromotion, I ended up puchasing the pass through another reseller.On the interrail.eu website, is there now an option to make reservations? Their system does not recognize that I have a pass as I purchased it elsewhere.Is it possible to enter my pass info somehow? Do I now need to make reservations through the national systems that I saw described elsewhere on this forum? Thanks
I’m trying to book reservations online for myself and a group of friends, for some train journeys within france. But when i get to the checkout it asks for me to provide paper pass numbers, when we have digital passes. Is there a way I can reserve these seats online without having to go to a french train station as I’m not in Europe until next week?
