Im looking to book a trip form vienna to venice on a sleeper train th 16th of january. The rail planner app has the time of the train but you cant make a reservation. It says that you can also go to the obb website. In the website the prices are not available. From what i have seen the prices should be up 180 days in advance. Does anyone know how when will they be available?Thanks.
My son and his best friend (22 and 23) are trying to get from Prague to Basel or Bern on Nov 24, 25, or 26 and eventually to Thun. They have eurail passes. The overnight train looked possible, but when you search Prague to Bern, there’s an issue with the last leg. When I search Prague to Basel, I don’t see the first leg of the prior trip and can’t book it. When I pick other stops, there’s only a paper ticket option, and they’re currently in Lisbon and bouncing around so mailing is not an option. Can they go in person to any train station and pick up a paper ticket? I’ve searched other trains and there’s one that’s insane—$1300 per ticket. The flight is $500 plus, and I was looking for that over night sleeper experience.
I like to make a reservation on the TGV train Brussel midi to Lyon Part Dieu. I just cant figure out on which platform i can do this? On b-europe i cant find the connection just under seat reservations and on the site of France is of course only the French cities you can find. Can someone tell me where i actually can make the seat reservation for this train?kinds regards,Tania
Dear Community members, We have one travel day left in Eurail pass and last day of our trip - 14th of November - we are planning we spend in Disneyland. I am looking on the option to spend our last travel day for travelling from Marne la Valle to Airport Charles de Gaulle but seat reservation is quite expensive, it is showing to me around 80euros for 4 of us. Our flight is scheduled for 11AM. Is seat reservation is really required if the travel time is only 10 minutes? Can we enter the train with Eurail ticket without seat reservation?
I want to book two reservations on the 10:52 train from Stuttgart to Paris on Wednesday December 27 but the response on the Interrail Reservations site is always the same - "Bad RequestYour browser sent a request that this server could not understand.Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." Please can you help - how can I make this reservation? We both have Interrail passes. I have tried via the DB site - but they will only book trains within Germany not into France. The Belgium site will only do Eurostar trains. The French SNCF site doesn’t accept Interrail passes.
The map on the Eurail site shows no connection between Madrid and Cordoba. When I use the Plan your Journey section of the Eurail site, Cordoba is not selectable as a destination. But I am able to get a price for Madrid → Cordoba on the Eurail site. Can someone help me explain how this works? Thanks,Kathryn
Why so many trips have legs with no seats available? Looking at early Jan 2024 for Regensburg to Nimes
Every combination from Regensburg to Nimes has at least one leg that is not reservable. Most common is Brussels to Nimes or Lyon to Nimes...also Stuttgart to Strasbourg. I have checked out into February and find the same result. Hard to imagine every train is full completely.
Hello. I am a first-time traveler in Europe. I booked reservations ahead of time. However, when I looked at the timetable for my first trip tomorrow, I noticed that there is a ride with the same schedule and seat reservation requirements. But the train names are different. Will this be a problem when I present my printed ticket?
Hello!I need to get a seat reservation for the Puertollano to Badajoz train, but when I called the infoline, the person there told me it’s not possible to book two trains with the change, but I also booked two separate trains right afterwards so why was that not the option?I got the reservations for the rest of my trains in Spain, but not this one. They suggested I just go to the station upon arrival to Puertollano and ask for it there.Does anyone know why this is the case? Should I call them again and ask for just a reservation for that one train? To my knowledge regional trains in Spain do not even require a mandatory reservation, so that only adds to the confusion...
Hello All! Looking for some help / to have my anxiety alleviated! Have purchased a Eurail for 2 people to travel across Europe. I’ve managed to book as far as Vienna, but from there, almost all trains are giving me the ‘prices unavailable’ error. This is the specific route: Vienna - Bucharest: 3rd Jan 2024Bucharest - Istanbul: 7th Jan 2024Istanbul - Ankara: 14th Jan 2024. I’m particularly concerned about the Vienna - Bucharest leg as we’d love to get a Night train (the Dacia 347) but that requires a reservation. I’ve tried on OBB as well as the Romanian carrier’s website but both show ‘tickets not available’ or similar. I understand the December 10th schedule change makes ticket bookings open far later than normal, but most of my research (as well as the OBB website) says night trains/long distance routes should have become available by mid-October. I feel like it’s safe to assume the schedule hasn’t been released yet and to just keep checking. My question is whether anybody has ha

Im looking to make a seat reservation on a sleeper train for me and 6 friends. We all have the global pass. I think that because we are seven people im not able to make the reservation directly from the website. Is there any solution to do this directly from eurail or do i have to go to another website. If so which one? Thanks.
Was anyone else affected by the curtailed service of the Night Jet sleeper 40490 from Vienna to Amsterdam on the 23rd October 2023 leaving at 20:11pm the train was stopped in Passau by police searching for someone and we were told by the conductor to leave the train at Numermburg as the train would be delayed by at least four hours and we would then miss our onward connection from Amsterdam
hoi,Voor een reis samen met mijn dochter deze kerst naar het noorden van Zweden zag ik dat we voor de meeste treinen moesten reserveren. Omdat die trips nog niet in de app/dienstregeling beschikbaar waren heb ik alle reserveringen via de Zweedse spoorwegmaatschappij gedaan. Nu wil ik onze reizen in de app gaan zetten maar kan deze niet bevestigen, alleen als ik in de app de reserveringskosten aanklik. Weet iemand hoe ik dat kan oplossen?
Hello,I am trying to reserve seats for my Christmas holiday with my 4-day pass, but I am getting an error message when I go to pay for the seat reservations.My trips are from Copenhagen to Munich on 27 Dec and Munich to Zurich on 30 Dec.I found the trains I would like to take, and I go through the steps to reserve, but at the end, it says I cannot book certain parts of the trip.I don’t understand what I am doing wrong. I don’t think that the trains are full, because I went to the DB website, and it shows that there are seats available.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone, My wife and I are planning to travel from Milan to Roma. We have already made our seat reservations, but after checking out, we found that we were placed in different carriages. Does anyone know how to adjust our seat reservations so that we can be in the same carriage and have adjacent seats? Thank you Additionally, when making a seat reservation, can we select the specific train carriage and seat number we want? If so, how can we view the available carriages and seats?
I am planning a travel from Denmark to the Pyrenees, where I will be hiking. That means I will bring some camping equipment with me. This includes items that are not allowed on Eurostar trains.But since Eurostar is faster than most other trains it will often show up when I search for the part of the journey that goes between Germany and Paris.Are there any train route planners where it is possible to exclude Eurostar trains? On Bahn.de I can exclude high speed train. But that will also exclude trains like ICE and TGV. Palle Dam, Denmark
Hi all! I’m trying to book seat reservations on IC 1073 (Bern - Interlaken) for mid-December 2023 and haven’t had any luck on the Eurail website or the www.cd.cz website which Eurail recommends as an alternative to book seat reservations. Getting the following error on Eurail website:“Prices unavailableNo price results were found. Pass holder reservations may be sold out for this connection, but there are other ways to check for available seats—more info below our timetable.” The other website also comes with this error:“Internal system error (103)” Does anyone have any idea or may have encountered this problem? Could it just be that they haven’t made the seat reservations available yet for the trains? Any help is appreciated! Thank you :)
Just a few questions for an upcoming trip with a couple of kids…what’s the difference between when a trip says “you’re ready to board” and “you’re ready to board. You can purchase a reservation if you’d like”? we have a few trips with train changes. I’d like to add the whole trip to my eurail app. Is there a way to do that or do I have to pull up each trip individually? I’ve purchased reservations for the ones required, but they don’t show up in “my trip” for some reason. They are under ‘my reservations” is there a place to see what terminals the tickets are associated with? I’ll be with two little kids and some of these transfers are quick. I don’t think we’re going to use all the days I purchased the pass for. Is there a way to downgrade without affecting my reservations?Thanks!
Hello. I see there are lots of people asking about seat reservations, although most are travelling in continental Europe. I recently completed an 8-day First Class UK-only Interrail trip and I’d like to share my experiences. Basically, in the UK, despite what the app. says you DO NOT need seat reservations for most trains, even long-distance expresses, apart for the exceptions I’ll list below. There seems to be some inconsistency within the app/website itself where the Rail Planner says reservations ARE ‘required’ for just about everything but local trains and yet the help section says they are merely ‘recommended’. I see that as a cash-grab by Interrail - trying to sell those reservations at 6 Euro a shot through their own portal. The exceptions are:Eurostar (obviously).The two overnight sleeper services to/from London (GWR to Penzance and Caledonian Sleeper to Scotland) where seat reservations are mandatory, even in the seated coaches.LNER. Here, seat reservations ARE required
