ICE fully booked, reservation not mandatory (but recommended), can I still travel?
I want to travel from Amsterdam to Basel with ICE 105 on Monday the 18th July at 08:08. The rail planner app states “seat reservation recommendation” but checking oebb.at and bahn.com it seems that the train is fully booked. As the app says that reservations are recommended but not mandatory, I believe I should be able to travel, but I don’t want to gamble. Can someone confirm or deny? I’m fine with moving around in the train if my seat gets taken.Thanks,
Seat reservation Barcelona - Lyon; did not receive confirmation email
So yesterday I made a seat reservation from Barcelona to Lyon. I still haven't gotten any confirmation email, it is not even showing in the reservation overview but the payment was successful. What am I supposed to do now? I've already contacted the interrail team but any responses yet.
Night train from Istanbul to Sofia. I can't find the schedule.
Hello! This is my first post here as I will soon be in Istanbul and I’m wondering if anybody knows whether the night train from Halkali station is running to Sofia Bulgaria. The Interrail/Eurail website seems to imply that it does however I cannot find a schedule and I read a bloggers page that said it wasn’t running due to Covid (but the page hadn’t been updated in awhile). Thanks in advance!James
Can't find journey to reserve in timetable
I have purchased a eurail pass, and am now trying to book seat reservations! However, the train time options coming up in my search in the app, are then not showing as options when I go to book seat reservations on the website!! Why is this?Thanks in advance!!
"One of the legs of your journey could not be booked"
Hi I'm trying to book seat reservations for 6 people from Lausanne to Paris at 9:45am on 11 August. I get to the last stage of checkout and get a red error message saying 'one of the legs of your journey could not be booked. This is the only journey in my cart. I've tried many times and just keep getting the same error. I don't understand as the website says seats are available? I also get the same problem if I try to book the train from Geneva or a train from Lausanne at a different time on the same day.Can anyone help?Thanks
Reservation: no more tickets from Krakow to Budapest?
My niece and I decided to travel through Europe this fall and created a really fun route. One of our plans was to take the night train from Krakow to Budapest on November 10th. To our surprise it seems to be sold out everywhere, is that true? They don’t specifically say that it’s sold out but I get an error every time I try to make a reservation. It says we should be able to book 60 days in advance.If we can’t take this train the rest of our whole route doesn’t work... On cd.cz I get: “No train can be reserved for the specified date/route – this may be due to operational restrictions (e.g. closure activity).” On Interrail.eu I get: “Prices unavailable”When trying to contact CD and the Polish Intercity all I got was a direction on where to book tickets in general. Hope someone can help us figure this out :) This is our first time using Interrail...
Is the seat reservation desk at station 24/7 open?
I plan to travel from Porto to Vigo, from Vigo to Barcelona en from Barcelona to Paris in three days. Therefore I have to buy the Seat reservation at the same days as I travel. In Vigo my train leaves at 07:42, is the desk allready open at that time? As I arrive in Vigo at 22:34 the day before I am afraid time is too short to get my Seat reservation.
Reservations for night trains?
Alright seasoned travellers! This year I plan on taking quite some night trains, but I don't have a set plan. I have used night trains before and usually booked them before my trip. These are a few of the trains I might take this summer:ÖBB NightJet Amsterdam - Vienna ÖBB NightJet Vienna - Berlin EuroNight 347 Dacia Vienna - Bucharest Intercity 407 Corona Budapest - Brasov EuroNight 462 Kalman Imre Budapest - München EuroNight 476 Budapest - Warsaw TLK Domestic night train PolandI was wondering how easy it is to book night trains on the go. I can imagine in high season couchettes can get sold out, or sometimes it's not possible to book all types of accomodation on certain routes, when booking at the train station. What are your experiences? Or do you prefer to book night trains in advance?
Making a Reservation on the Paris to Latour night train
My partner and I each have 4-days-in-a-month Interrail All-Europe passes. We are planning a trip in December from London to Sevilla. On the outward journey, we want to take the Paris-Latour Intercite de Nuit couchette service on Sunday December 5. Using your website, I added all the various journeys to the Basket [London to Paris and returning; Barcelona to Sevila and returning; Barcelona to Paris on the homebound leg; plus the night sleeper service on the outward leg.] When I tried to proceed to Checkout, there was a message in red below the Paris-Latour leg of the journey, saying “Please find an alternative connection.” I tried again. I also tried booking a 2nd class couchette instead of 1st class [the class of our Interrail passes]. But I got the same message. Please can you help me to book this service for myself and my partner.
Country of Issue Not Shown
Hi,I’m trying to book reservations for some trains later in the weekend, and I cannot continue because the site only lists EU countries as countries of issue for documents, even though I have my country of residence and currency set to Canada. How do I change this, or can I just lie?
1st class seat reservation with 2nd class pass?
I recently booked a reservation for Eurostar from Paris to London. I didn’t realize it was a 1st class reservation until I saw it on the ticket that it only valid for 1st class only. I actually did input my Eurail pass number in when booking, so I am not sure why it went through. There is no 2nd class ticket available to exchange. I am currently in Italy and not sure if the ticket office here can help since it is a different train operator. I was wondering if it is possible to pay the difference in price from 2nd to 1st class for reservation from b-europe. Anyone had the same experience? Should I call the customer service or I can just pay the difference at the Paris station?
Night train Amsterdam Zurich not visible in Eurail app
I have bought an online Eurrail pass and I’m travelling from Amsterdam to Zurich. On the Eurrail planner website I saw there is a direct train going from Amsterdam to Zurich (depart 20:28 and arrive 08:39) and it says that I can board that train and don’t need any reservations for it. However, somehow this train does not show up in my interrail app, so I cannot add this train to my trip. Does anyone have this same problem? Or know how I can still add this trajectory to my trip? Or does it mean that I cannot take that train?

( we are looking to book 1 x 2 berth deluxe and 1 x 3 berth deluxe on thr Rome to Palermo 20:31 departure on 6 April 2023. )the special fares on Trenitalia are still more expensive in this case than the pass holder reservations at this point thank you
OBB Seat Reservation WIEN to Salzburg. Ticket Not Available
We purchased Train Tickets from WIEN (Vienna) to Salzburg. The Tickets are good for any train for 48 hours. We want to purchase Seat Reservations for either the 9:28 AM, or the 9:55 AM Direct Train (RJ and RJX). When we go through the process on the Website, the two times that we are interested in show “Ticket Not Available”. The ICE (Intercity) Trains that leaves at 9:15am, and 10:13am have openings for Seat Reservations. But the ICE Trains have over 30 stops between Vienna and Salzburg, and take over an hour longer, than the Direct Trains (at 9:28am & 9:55am).This is for May 15th, a Monday. When i look for the same times (928, and 955) on other Mondays before and after May 15th there have been opennings.Is there something special about Monday May 15th, that they would not open up Seat Reservations for 928 and 955 am Train?If we show up, without Seat Reservations, do the Trains tend to be full? Or are there normally open seats?Someone told us that because 928 and 955 are popular
Hi,I have a Interrail GlobalPass and am currently in Austria. I would like to book the Budapest-Bucharest night journey but on the Hungarian site, despite the addition of the pass, the fares are much higher than expected, perhaps they contain the seat + the ticket and I can't find a way to separate them. On the Romanian site, it is impossible to put a form of discount/pass in the entry data. Finally, on the OBB site, the ticket is indicated as not available. Do I have to wait until I'm at the station to take these tickets? I also want to book the Bucharest-Sofia but on neither site is it possible to select these departure and arrival points. How should I do ? Finally, on the Sofia Istanbul, I guess it is only possible to pick it up at the station. Is it possible to still get a seat by booking at the last minute ? Thank you in advance,
Me and my friend do not have the same timetables in the app and all trains Poland show fully booked

Booking Reservations for train France-Spain and Spain
Hey everyone, I know there’s been a lot of discussion going on about the seat reservation between France and Spain but I still struggle to make my reservation. As I am currently in Germany and planning to travel to Lyon and one day later (2.12.) from Lyon to Valencia, I cannot book this trip as indicated at a local spanish station. I tried via app - says ticket would arrive too late and cannot be booked therefore, also tried to send it to my hostel in Lyon and it would still not work. Then I tried at a local european station counter - they say they cannot book it either. I tried to call SNFC but the call is not going through. Has anybody another idea?Did anyone ever let a spanish friend buy a reservation locally and thenreceived it by email?How good are the chances to book the ticket the moment I arrive in the evening of 1st of december for the next day?I really hope someone can help. Thanks!Mirjam
Mistake in train reservations
We made several reservations with the interrail tool. We indicated that we wanted second class seats (non-silence). The interrail system did make the reservations for us, however, most of them are in a silent compartment.This is not the biggest problem because two of our seats are actually business silenzio 1st class reservations. The order confirmation indicates we booked second class, but the actual reservations don't. I have contacted interrail two weeks ago but still don't have a reply.Does anybody have the same issue? How did they solve it?

Seat reservations Milano Centrale - Firenze S.M.N. How to book?
Hi! I need to make a seat reservation for Milano Centrale - Firenze S.M.N on 21/04/22 for 2 adults. Is there a way to book just seats on TreinItalia? I can’t get the Interrail one to work. Also when I look the journey up on TI it only gives me the whole ticket price. I can’t see an option to choose Seat OnlyThe app says you only need a seat reservation for the first leg of the journey and then change at Pisa Centrale. are there any other companies for Italian trains to book seat only reservations? Any help would be great!
Problems booking reservations Bologna Munich
Are there others who have trouble booking seat reservations for your Interrail trip during the summer holidays? I will travel in mid-July. I have never had any problems booking seat reservations with Interrail in the past, which I have tried several times. The Website and the App just stand and search without any result. I have problems both in the Railplanner App and on the website www.interrail.eu I am trying to book seat reservations between Bologna and Munich /day time. My itenary is Copenhagen- Basel-Zurich-Chur-Tirano-Montorosso-Bologna-Munchen-Salzburg-Copenhagen. However, it only says in the App that it is Bologna-Munich that requires a seat reservation. But is it not also a good idea to book a seat reservation on the Copenhagen-Basel and Salzburg-Copenhagen routes? I am eager to receive some good advice.
Reservation in general
Hello together,we got a few general questions regarding the reservation-booking. We used the reservation booking tool from interrail but it shows us following message for bookings in denmark:“No results were found for this connection. Please try again or find an alternative booking method.”. If I click on the alternative booking method, there’s either a callcenter provided or it says I have to book it at the trainstation. Is any trainstation meant or the trainstation in denmark where we want to take the train from? Is the callcenter also working for every country or only for switzerland, because there’s written that its especially for switzerland. Is it also working if we just book/buy the reservations short time before the departure or do we have the risk that there’s no space left? We are looking forward hearing from you!Alex & Friends We are travelling from germany to norway.
