I selected all my reservations and entered payment details, after clicking “Pay” is loops back to asking me to enter payment details. I tried various browsers and different credit cards. Same issue. How do I resolve this?These are the seats:Am I doing something wrong? Resolved. The card required 3D authentication.
Hi all! So, I’m currently interrailing and I’m in Istanbul. In a few days I will hop on the train going from Istanbul to Sofia. From there, I would like to reach Belgrade, and then Bar via night train from Bel to Bar. The problem is: the transport situation between Sofia and Belgrade is messy to say the least. On the Internet I’ve read that a viable route would be: Sofia-Dimitrovgrad-Niš-Beograd, although some websites state that the train from Niš is daily and departs (11:25) before the one the one from Dimitrovgrad arrives (11:30 or 12:27, depending on the website).I’m not even sure this train exists. Other alternatives apparently are Sofia-Beograd by bus or Dimitrovgrad-Niš by bus and then Niš-Beo by train again, since this part of the trip is quite easy. Can someone help me?
Hello,I’m trying to make a seat reservation on eurostar form Paris to London on the b-europe.com site. It is asking me for my pass cover number which I don’t have because I have a mobile pass, rather than a paper one (however I don’t see anywhere that you can’t travel on eurostar with a mobile pass?). Is it possible to get a pass cover number with a mobile pass? Thanks!
I purchased 2 seat reservations through OBB for Milano Centrale to Firenze SMN 11th of Dec. This is supposedly for a travel day. I indicated in the booking that we will be using our global pass. Paid 20 euros for them. Our plans have changed and we do not wish to use a travel day for this trip. Below are my questions:1. Since I indicated in the booking that we will use our global passes, that means we don't actually have tickets and just have seats, correct?2. If number one is correct, how do I go about purchasing tickets for the same train and not make seat reservations since we already have the seats?I hope you could help. This is our first Europe trip. TIA
Hello, I'd like to reserve a seat through Eurail Pass I'm booking a seat for the train from Switzerland to Italy, but there are three options. There was only one option for the other reservation section. But Euro City have three price like that. The price are all the same, so I think 2 class priority will be a gain, but I can't make a reservation without certainty..Please answer me regarding this seat selection🥲

Please read first and if you still have questions start a own topic to keep this post as Informationpost as clean as possible. This post is made by @rvdborgt @AnnaB@runner.on.rails and myself. Hi if you are useing a Railpass there will be the point that a train needs a Reservation 🙂 Many of you ask where to get a reservation for a specific train.First of all there are 2kinds :)Supplements like the Intercity Direct in Netherlands or the German/Austrian - Italian Supplement on Eurocity & Railjets that have to be paid and doesnt include a seat :/.And Seatreservations like the TGV,Eurostar or Thalys that include in the supplement fee even a seat reservation.There are several ways reserve a seat :)A. on the Website of the Traincompany that operate the train.B. at the trainstation (On major stations you have “International ticket desks” they often can reserve even trains in a different country for example you can reserve your TGV from Munich to Paris already in Prague 🙂 )C. Via the Ra
Last year we got the NightJet from Innsbruck to Cologne to then get the ICE to Brussels (both prebooked and reserved)We missed our connection by less than 10 minutes and got the next available ICE 2 hours later.There would have been a Thalys an hour earlier. Could we have got this one as the next train at no extra cost? The staff at the Deutsche Bahn Info desk didn’t seem to think so but then he was Deutsche Bahn. This suggests I could have if I understand it right: https://faq.trainline.eu/article/449-miss-train#:~:text=You%20can%20speak%20to%20the,the%20delay%20is%20not%20significant.I am asking because we are doing the same trip again this year and trying to decide if I book the later ICE or if I book the earlier one with the risk of ending up on the later one anyway or if we could end up on the Thalys with the earlier booking if delayed again.Thoughts appreciated. The NightJet is with Interrail ticket this time but the ICE connection will be booked without IR.
Hi everyone,I have a Eurail pass, but accidentally bought some Interail seat reservations rather than Eurail seat reservations because the app takes you through the Interrail website. Does this matter?Would be great to hear if anyone has had this issue before.Thanks in advance.
Hello, we want to reserve seats on a night train that goes from Cluj-Napoca to Bucharest but we have an error message:"Prices unavailable. No fares were found for this route. Seats for Pass holders may be sold out. Look for another route or see More information to see other booking options. If the seats for Pass holders are sold out, you will need to purchase a full fare ticket to make this journey."And this on several different route configurations. Is this normal? How to do ?Cordially,
HiI am trying to find a sensible route from Northern Italy/Switzerland back to Paris at the end of my month long pass planned for next April, with the aim that this can be covered in a day or two day max. I am happy for this to be High speed and require reservations. Just prior to this I intend to have a few days in Switzerland in and around the routes of Bernina and Glacier express, though probably local trains rather than scenic routes. So for example I will not be far from Milan as a starting point.Or I could step off from Switzerland back to Paris.Can any one suggest possible routes?ThanksMalcolm
I bought an eurail pass, and I want to reserve a seat on the site.At the beginning of the reservation, the address and contact number were entered at the step of entering the order details.But even if I press the button to move on, it doesn't move on.I can't make a reservation.What should I do?
Hi All,I’ve been wanting to reserve a seat on the overnight train between Prague and Budapest on the 6th of Jan. On the cd.cz website, all trains are available to purchase/reserve except the overnight train departing at 10.43. This train also doesn’t seem to be showing up on any other websites e.g. raileurope. I was just wondering if anyone knew how to reserve this train or why I am unable to yet?
According to Bulgarian train website currently the schedule is set till 10.12. We are planning to take the train on the 23 at night and now are wondering if trains are still going in winter? Any one know about the winter schedule of the trains? Also, is it possible that Nighttrains from Buccharest to Vienna can only be booked one months in advance? I noticed that after that tickets are available till the 8th of december, but are not available after.
English (german below/Deutsch unten)I understand that you have 2 travel days to get out of country and to get back into your country (of residence). My Plan is to use IC40600 from Karlsruhe to Hamburg and then moving from Hamburg to Kobenhaven. The Train departs at 23.06 and apparently there for those 54 minutes are my travelday inside my country of residence. (and german trains are never punctual). Is it actually necessary that I book a later train? So wie ich es verstehe hat man 2 Reisetage um in und aus dem Wohnsitzland zu reisen. Ich würde gerne den IC40600 von Karlsruhe nach Hamburg nutzen und anschliessend von Hamburg nach Kopenhagen fahren. Der Zug fährt um 23.06 ab und dadurch wird anscheinend jener Tag bzw jene 54 min als dieser Reisetag angezeigt. Ist es tatsächlich notwendig jetzt ne Stunde später den zug zu nehmen? Ist ja ziemlich unlogisch gemacht. Dauernd alles flexibel reden aber 0-24 uhr einstellen statt ein 24 stündiges zeitfenster. Totaler quatsch.
I see that only the route to Sicily is available, due to be reserved via Interrail. We are looking to make a reservation from Milano to Bari. When using Italiarail as advised in another post, you only seem to be able to book normal seats, but not beds. Now, without going to Italy, how can I make a reservation for a bed in night train in Italy?
We are about to embark on our first trip across Europe using rail rather than flying and am struggling a bit with this notion of seat reservations vs a booking. One specific question I would like guidance on from the community is this. I have a Eurail pass and have booked two first class tickets from Munich to Prague on November 23rd on RE357 aka ALX357. Trying to get a seat reservation has been frustrating. I have checked the CD Bahn.DE and Eurail sites and get various forms of “the train is temporarily unavailable for reservations”. Without a seat reservation am I guaranteed a seat but not a specific assignment or could we show up and not be able to board because it is fully booked. It never states fully booked so I’m trying to decide do I show up and hope I get a seat or do I give up and book another train. This is a direct train so it is far more convenient and the other options have 1 or more quite tight connections <10 minutes. Being new to this and having luggage for two of u
Hi everyone! I live in Lyon. If I want to get the eurostar from Paris, is my journey to Paris included as my 'outbound journey', or would my outbound journey be my eurostar? Basically, are both my journey to Paris and my eurostar allowed on the ticket? (it would be the same coming back arriving in Paris on the eurostar and then going back to Lyon). Thanks so much in advance, I’m so confused!!
