Interrail Timetables Error
There is an error in the timetable. One can not travel from Teltow to Bingen am Rhein by public transport in 20 minutes which it returns. It is 450 kilometers.Where it is possible to report this issue? Chatbot or help centre leads nowhere.Edit:The search was for trip from Berlin to Paris and it was on the web timetables.
Received email from SNCF cancelled train
I received an email from SNCF regarding a cancelled train (France strikes) but not on Eurail or on SNCF Connect site can I look up my ticket information (I tried ‘import’ but that failed). I can’t get in touch with anyone at Eurail. How do I proceed? Per the email, neither option is actionable (I did not have a eurail account when I bought tickets): Your train 4655, on 16/03, departing from MONTPELLIER SAINT ROCH to MARSEILLE SAINT CHARLES is cancelled due to interprofessional social movement.We offer you the following options: Exchange your ticket at no cost, keeping the same departure and arrival stations. Cancel your ticket, before departure, to get a refund.To do this, go to SNCF Connect or to your SNCF-approved travel agency.

TGV Réservation from Brussels to Montpellier
Hi, I want to take a tgv on 30/06 from Brussels South (Midi) to Montpellier Sud De France and back again on 02/07.I currently can't make any reservation and it says so on the both the app and the website that reservations can be made 'up to 90 days on advance'. Do they mean by that that I can make a reservation that way starting from 90 days on advance or literally up to 90 days on advance and not after?I have tried booking directly through Belgian rail and French rail sites but at no point so they ask if I have a railpass. Calling the phone numbers leads to being on hold for longer than I have time for.Is it not possible to book directly through the app or Interrail website?
Seat reservations too early- credit card was charged
I'm traveling with a group of 12 people this July. Bought a 3 day France pass. Tried To buy seat reservations, got an error message, discovered it's too early to reserve seats. My credit card was charged for the full cost of the seat reservations though. Not just a credit card hold, but a charge. My question is, do I now have some sort of credit to my account, so when I book these seats later, it'll show that I've already paid? Or will the app ask me to pay again, in which case I should be trying to get a refund now?
Eurostar missing 9044 train on 31 March 2023
We booked 5 Eurostar passholder reservations on the 9044 train departing London at 17:31 on 31 March 2023. That train no longer appears in the app OR the Eurostar website timetable?Is the train no longer running? No one has been in touch to explain or propose an alternative booking. Do we need to sort that ourselves?can we get the original non refundable reservation fee refunded for a non existent train?Am I best to contact Eurail or Eurostar to resolve?thank you!
How to get reservations travelling in Poland
We’re trying to book train reservations for travel in Poland. The planner states reservations are compulsory, but there seems no way of booking them. We’ve looked at both the DB and PKP websites, but neither gives the possibility of buying reservations. Which leaves us wondering what to do. We’re planning to travel from Berlin to Warsaw, having traveled from Brussels earlier in the day. No reservation is necessary for the leg between Berlin and Frankfurt Oder, however reservations are necessary once we enter Poland. We could buy train tickets, but that’s silly already having an Interrail ticket. Can anyone offer advice about what we do? Thanks for your help
Réservations en Espagne
Bonjour, Jai pris un pass global pour voyager cet été 2023 (juillet et août). J’aimerais boucler mes réservations au plus tôt pour ne pas me retrouver coincée par la période de forte affluence et ne plus avoir de places dans les trains. Mais pour l’Espagne, je vois qu'on ne peut réserver que dans les gares. J'habite en France (à La Réunion plus précisément) et je ne vois pas comment anticiper mes réservations et récupérer mes billets. j'ai peur de me retrouver le bec dans l'eau si j'attends d'être sur place pour faire mes réservations, en plein été et donc avec le risque d'avoir des trains qui affichent complet. Merci pour vos conseils et retours d'expériences pour ceux qui auraient utiliser un pass en espagne pendant l'été.
How to travel out of Switzerland multiple times with a Global Pass and avoid outbound/inbound journey?
I’m a resident of Switzerland (Zurich) and plan to travel in England and France during Sept. and Oct. but want to return to Switzerland 3 to 4 times in this period; one outbound/inbound journey is included in the pass which I can use at any time.What I understand so far: to “save” the out/inbound journey I need to buy point-to-point tickets as explained here: https://www.interrail.eu/en/interrail-passes/what-is-interrail/travel-your-own-countrySo if I take a train from Zurich SBB to Paris via Basel SBB but want to avoid the outbound journey then:I’d need to buy a ticket from Zurich SBB to Basel SBB (the “Grenzbahnhof”) and the journey from Basel SBB to Paris would then be covered by my Global Pass If I take the TGV from Zurich then I’d need to buy a point-to-ticket from Zurich to Basel SBB incl. a seat reservation PLUS a seat reservation from Basel SBB to Paris OR I could take a Swiss train from Zurich to Basel SBB and then get on the TGV in Basel SBB with my Global Pass plus seat rese
Trains SNCF not matching Interrail timetable
TGV Barcelona - Valence for 11 august 2023. Times not matching in Interrail Website and SNCF Connect. Edit: I saw already another post where it is explained that schedules on Interrail website are not reliable as updated less frequently than that of operators.
Night train reservation Sweden/Norway
Hello,I have two questions :Just to make sure, reserving a berth in advance for the Stockholm/Narvik night train doesn’t mean it will activate my Interrail pass, right? I specified that I have a pass in the research to have the correct prices, and the SJ website is asking for my ticket number. It might sound like a silly question, but I don’t want to make a silly mistake (: I’m also planning on reserving another berth in another night train (this time Bodø/Trondheim) but when I try to make my reservation on Entur, I can’t seem to find the ‘filter’ in which to add my Interrail ticket as a form of discount for my reservation. What would be the steps to follow? Thanks in advance for your help and have a lovely day!Eve
Bari Italy to Rimini
I’ll be arriving in Bari on the ferry from Greece on Sunday at, theoretically, 0900hrs. The ferry is often late though so I don’t know which Bari to Rimini train to reserve. My question is, “how likely are they to run out of Interrail reservations?” Some of the trains are 5 Euro reservations and some are 12 Euros.
Cannot find train from Warsaw to Vienna in the rail planner
Hi guys!We are planning to travel from Warsaw to Vienna by Euronight trains (EN407) on 28th June. However I cannot find this train in the rail planner. I see the reservation is avaliable in the Polrail Service with option for people who have Eurail pass but this website is not shown or authorised? in the Eurail website. Is it too early for this train reservation or it is the problem from the rail planner?Thanks for all your help in advance!Jason
What if my paper ticket doesn't arrive on time?
Hi!On March 13th I booked a paper seat reservation for the train from Warsaw to Szceczin on April 5th. I am a very anxious person so I am quite terrified my ticket won’t arrive on time (the estimated delivery date during check-out was April 3rd). I try reasurring myself by reading this forum and trying to convince myself that if the website let me buy the ticket it should be fine, but anxiety can do terrible things to one’s emotions 😅Does anyone know what I can do if my ticket doesn’t arrive on time to actually board the train? I have a big trip planned to see some friends and I would really hate having to cancel it all because of that one ticket.Thank you in avance!
ICE reservation Netherlands - Germany
Hi there,I'm planning my Interrail trip for next summer. The idea is to travel from the Netherlands to Ancona or Bari (Italy) and from there take the ferry to Albania.Now it seems nice to travel to München by day train and from there take the night train to Ancona. However, I'm struggling with the ICE reservations. The most convenient route would be to take the 08.34 ICE 105 from Utrecht Centraal to Mannheim and change to the 12.30 ICE 595 to München (preferred date 10 July). Now, via the "seat only" option on the Deutsche Bahn website, I try to reserve seats for said trains. The ICE 595 seems to work fine, but for the ICE 105 it says "Reservation temporarily not possible". I've tried several times over the course of 1-2 weeks so it seems persistent and not temporary.Another option is the 11.04 ICE 123 from Utrecht to Cologne/Köln and from there the 13.55 ICE 519 to München. Seat reservations for both ICE 123 and ICE 519 can be booked just fine. So it's probably not (a) that I'm too ea
My reserved Eurostar train no longer appears listed
I have paid for seat reservations on Eurostar for a specific date and time.My train departed at 09:03 a.m. on April 15th I have the Eurostar App that still shows this date and time. But both the Eurail app and the Eurostar website timetables no longer show this train at all. They show a 9:30 a.m. train or an 8:30 a.m. train.I have written to Eurostar support to find out what happened to my reservation, but in the meantime I'd like to know if this is a common occurrence and how do people get it solved.
Night train from Munich to Rome
Hello Everyone,I am looking for information about a night train option for a trip from Munich to Rome early August (4) this summer. I see two trains on the schedule but can not reserve seats. Will these trains run? Do I just have to wait 90 days prior to then reserve berths? There are 4 of us, what options for berths exist on these trains?Thanks Community!sean
Budapest to Innsbruck
Hello Everyone,Just received my Eurail passes. Tried to make a reservation from Budapest to Innsbruck. Message I received that passes may not work. The date is for July 24, ‘23. Wondering if this is an issue of just waiting to be 90 days away or if it is Eurail pass issue? Can we use our Eurail pass from Budapest to Innsbruck?Thank you,Sean
By train from France to Greece
Hello all:) I have a question concerning trains in the balkan countries. I plan to travel from France to Greece in the beginning of June, but I cannot find any good train connections, neither on the Interrail site, nor on the national railway sites. I would like to go from(1) France to Austria (that´s easy) (2) and then maybe from Vienna to Beograd, Serbia (even there I did not find connections:( )(3) Then I somehow need to reach my final destination Greece (Thessaloniki for example), maybe via Skopje?Has anyone a suggestion how I could travel from Beograd to Thessaloniki, which is not too complicated?I saw that normally there is the Hellas Express Night train, but it seems not to be working in 2023 (still due to covid…?). Does anybody have informations about that? Or does anybody know which buses I could take in case there is no train connection. I would be very grateful for every advice! :) Thank you very much :)
Help: French strike and whole trip messed up
Hi all,I had planned to use my interrail for a full week of holidays in London. My plan was to do:11 March (tomorrow): Geneva - Paris (06:29 - 09:26 am), Paris - Brussels. Stay in Brussels the day to visit 12 March (Sunday): Brussels - Lille (07:17 - 07:51), Lille - London (09:31 - 09:51) and then stay in LondonI took seat reservations for all of these connections. Now to the challenge:Geneva to Paris train on 11 March is now cancelled because of the strike. The alternative train I could take is Lausanne to Paris (07:23 - 11:12). However there aren't any seats available to reserve this on the interrail site. Can I just jump in and fight my right to stay but with no reservation to that specific train (different though very close departure point)? The Paris - Brussels is still ok until now so if I get to Paris with the Lausanne train and run for my life from Gare de Lyon to Gare Nord I should be able to board it. Let’s imagine I do. So now Im in Brussels. The train Bruxelles to Lille
Paris to Spanish border this Sun 12/Mon 13 March
Hey Interrailers and Eurailers :)I have a reservation for the Intercité de Nuit 3731 Paris - Perpignan for this Sunday (12 March, 9.42pm). From there I was planning to head down to Tarragona on Monday.I'm pretty sure the train has been canceled: https://www.sncf.com/en/booking-itinerary/search-train-number/train-details/3731?date=03%2F12%2F2023&codeCirculation=9fdbf481825f3a7b8b503694793f693a&codeZoneArret=OCE87547000Luckily my train to Paris tomorrow still seems to be going. I'm thinking about probably getting the bus instead of the night train.But do you have any ideas for alternative ways to get from Paris to Tarragona or am I missing anything important or obvious!?I'm seeing a friend on Sunday so I won't be able to leave a lot earlier but would be OK with staying in Paris then leaving there Monday morning. It's just the strike is stopping me knowing what trains will actually go!?
