Eurostar from Amsterdam to London
Hello all! Very new to all this, but I’ve had absolutely no luck paying for seat reservations at all. The only leg of my journey I can’t afford to use the “no seat reservation” filter is from Amsterdam to London (travelling on 13th or 14th April). I thought a couple of weeks in advance would have been enough, but am I being completely naïve?! I would have thought there’d at least be some potential to get a ticket… Any words of wisdom around this would be greatly appreciated, before I go ahead and book a flight (boo).
Consuming 2 travel days for IC407 Krakow to Prague
Hey Everyone,I am trying to book the night train from Krakow to Prague and it leaves at 22:42 and arrives at 7:31 the next day. After checking on polrail, it seems that the train does not actually switch, and that you end up staying in the same car, but it changes operators and switches tracks in Bohumin. The app views this as a switching connection, and as such, it’s requiring me to spend 2 travel days despite it not actually switching. I would think since it’s technically a single train, it shouldn’t count as multiple days.Do I actually need to activate the second half of the trip as long as I get the reservation via polrail and flip the initial switch in the app for Krakow - Bohumin? Is there a way to do this without the app using 2 travel days?
Hello everyone….Good day.I have already purchased the Eurail Pass for me and my family. However, I will be grateful if anyone kindly clarify the following aspects related to seat reservation:Can I do reservation online? If so, what is that link and how to do that and get the reservation confirmation? Can I do the reservation from any station? I mean for example, I need the reservations for MILAN to INTERLAKEN for 10th APRIL. Now can I do the reservation from Roma Termini station on 8th/9th April by going there physically? I need another reservation for ZURICH to PARIS for 12th April. Now can I do that reservation from ZURICH HB station on 11th April by going there physically? Suppose, I have done the reservation for a particular train on a particular time table. However, if I miss that time and want to catch up another train on the same destination on the same day on a different time table, will my previously purchased reservations will do? Or I need to purchase again? If I need to pur

Must email reservations be printed?
The information on the Eurail website says that you need to print emailed reservations. I won’t have a printer with me while traveling. Will I be able just to show the email instead of printing it?I’m new to the forum, so have been trying to catch up on the topics concerning other travelers. I was disappointed to see that experienced travelers recommend using other sites to make reservations. I was hoping that Eurail would be my “one stop shop”.
Another Reservation Query - Zurich to Paris TGV in the Summertime
Hi2nd year of rail pass travel with my son so we’re much more organised this year, however the delay in being able to book the last seat reservations for a key step in our journey back home is causing me some worry.we need to book on the 13:34 TGV Zurich to Paris on 10th August but bookings are still only open till around mid June, 3 months till pass reservations open I believe.However the price of the reservations with the pass is around 74 euros, no choice of seat location and risk I don’t get in quick enough due to limited pass seats.Whereas I can book that train now, via a few places but say the rail europe site for 77 euros (plus booking fee) and be able to chose an upstairs seat (obviously!) and rest easy.The few euros difference for peace of mind and an upstairs seat seems worthwhile or am I missing a trick.What would you do?Thanks
Seat Reservations in Portugal
Hello everyone,Sorry first time poster here. :)My partner and I are travelling through Portugal early April. i read that seat reservations can only be bought from vending machines and ticket offices inside Portugal and I just want some reassurance that they won't sell out around that time of year?Basically, we've had to rejig our entire trip because Eurostar seat reservations had sold out. (Hence the paranoia!) So instead we're flying to Faro instead and travelling up. The plan is to arrive 31 March. Take the train to Lisbon on the 1st, to Porto on the 2nd, and then to Vigo on the 3rd. Thanks!
Why can't I find trains between Porto, Portugal and Santiago de Compostela?
We are planning our train schedules for Spain and Portugal this summer. We find trains for all of our travels except for Porto to Saniago de Compostela to Segovia in July. No trains come up for this route. Up to Porto and Segovia into France show trains in July so I would not think that it is schedules aren’t available. Any thoughts?
Double Booked Eurostar by mistake
Hi, I wondered if anybody else has had the misfortune to make an error like I have and double booked the Eurostar ?I booked a journey and for some reason it was duplicated ( probably something to do with my less than up to date computer skills ! ) and so I have now paid for two journeys for exactly the same people at exactly the same time.I contacted eurorail to explain this was a mistake and was told curtly by email that sorry I could not get a refund.I understand the no exchange / cancellation by the ticket holder policy but surely if you have made a genuine mistake its a bit poor to be penalised by eurorail who have been known to make the odd mistake themselves…..Does anyone have any advice please ? ( other than sharpen up my computer skills which is a given...)Many thanks
Strikes in France. My options?
HiI wonder if anyone can help me? I shall wake up in Montpellier this Saturday and will take a local train to Nimes and then I have reservations for the train to Paris at 1214hrs so I can get my Eurostar reservation back to London leaving Paris at 1713hrs. The problem is that SNCF has emailed to say that they have cancelled the train from Nimes. Does anyone know what I can do so I get back to London on Saturday please?
Need help figuring out UK travel - Seat Reservations Required vs No Reservation
Hello! Newbie to rail travel and I’m trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B and when I need to book a reservation. I purchased a 5 day Eurail pass for myself and my daughter. I have read that it is possible to get around the UK without train reservations but I’m struggling with when I need to have a seat reservation and when I can use the Rail Planner app on the day of travel. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve left it to last minute if I need to book a reservation because I see many options are not available now. This trip was fairly last minute to begin with so I’m trying to make it work! :-) I only booked my airfare less than 2 weeks ago!I have booked and paid for a seat reservation on Eurostar for the trip from Paris to London and back. So yay! I’ve got that arranged. No other train travel or hotels have been booked/reserved yet. When I search for train times, ALL the trains are “Not available from Eurail.com.” Both those requiring a seat reservation and those not re

Eurostar Problem with seat reservations
Hi community, I bought a mobile global Interail pass a few days ago and since then I have to say my experience with Interail website and customer service has been completely awful. I was first able (after experiencing many problems with Interrail website though) to book my first trip: Colmar (France) - London. Unfortunately after that it has been impossible for me to buy my second trip on the website: London - Bern on the 31st of July 2022 or even only London - Paris via Eurostar.The website says ‘prices unavailable. Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservations’. I have been checking now for many many hours and days and it is still the same.I have to add that before I bought my pass I was able to check the prices of these trips and all on their webiste, so I really don’t understand what is going on now. Then I wrote Interail customer service several times from last Friday and still got no answer from them. I have been looking on forums and websites for hours

OEBB app Italy QR code on the phone or printed
On the Forum I read about the ÖBB app as a good possibility to make reservations in Italian trains. Tomorrow we want to travel from Milano to Rom. Seat reservation in the öbb App is possible but I get told: Ticket bitte vorab ausdrucken. Auf A4 papier ausdrucken. My question is: what is the alternativ? If I go to the Station about one hour earlier can I get the reservation too in a Ticket office? How much time does that take?
Hi - would be grateful if someone could clear this up. I cannot find info anywhere….. I am training in from Lecco (on Lake Como) into Milan. I don’t know what Milan train station I will arrive at? I am then getting on train from Milan to Bolzanno Bozen. Again, don’t know what Milan station this train goes from. Can someone please identify what is the name of the Milan train station for these two trains, as there appears to be a number of main train stations in Milan. many thanks.
