Hey there, I wanna go to London. my plan is acutally to take the night train before midnight to Offenburg from Germany. I then want to change in Paris and change there to London. The big problem is: It says the reservations from Paris to London in the Eurostar are temporary not available. I should check later. But are there seats left? I guess it would say if there are none left? Also: So this will only need one travel day because it is within 24 hours? Thanks in advance
Hi all,I hold an EURAIL pass. I am trying to book seat reservations from Zurich to Paris Lyon on 22d Dec 2023. However, the timetables does not seem t e updated in EURAIL/INTERRAIL website.Do we know when the latest timetable will be updated? Are there any other mechanisms to book seat reservations for TGV Lyria. I called SCF connect in Zurich and they cdnt assist either. I have booked other country seat reservations in DB/LNER/GWR websites. Am I required to tag those reservations with my EURAIL pass in my Rail planner app? or Do I just show my pass from the Rail planner app to the conductors? Am I able to use EURAIL pass within Switzerland? i.e Zurich->Lucerne or Zurich ->Bern etcAppreciate your response. Apologies if this was asked before.
Hiya, I’m new to interrailing, this might sound like a really silly question but if I book a standard sleeper car for me and my girlfriend on the OBB Nightjet, will someone else be able to book the other bunk? Or do I need to book the deluxe one instead?As on the final booking page it says that there is the potential that someone else could book it. However on other messages and support websites it says that if 2 people book for the same room then no one else can book the 3rd bed? Or am i just majorly overcomplicating it? Thanks!

Hello all,On 18 October I'll take the NightJet from Vienna to Arnhem (and after then with the intercity Arnhem-Nijmegen), my homestay-country is The Netherlands. I don't want to spoil my inbound-trip for just 18 km (Emmerich(Gr)-Arnhem) and after then buying a full price ticket Arnhem-Nijmegen. DB and NS-International sells tickets with BahnCard 100, very handy for buying-tickets without having to pay for the German part, (not official, but CIV shouldn't have abandoned the possibility to sell tickets from and to the border.ÖBB sells Reservations with Teilgültigkeit, (but not online, so only optional if you live in Austria, or not so far-away from the Austrian border). How could I solve this? Buying a ticket Emmerich(Gr)-Nijmegen, or sending a mail to ÖBB for an option? Are here Dutch travellers who have had the same problem like me and which solution did they have found? And how much will a Reservation with ‘Teilgültigkeit cost more). Does someone have such ticket and could he/she put

I bought a seat reservation for the night train from Roma to Torino tonight. I saw there are still couchette beds available for reservation, and would love to make an upgrade. I just don’t know how to do it. Can I go to the station and ask for an upgrade to a couchette bed? Would it be possible to upgrade inside the train?There’s a strike affecting public transit in Rome today, so I doubt I’ll make it to the main station.Has anyone had any experience with this?Thanks in advance.
HiI'm planning a trip to Spain and Portugal next week. I tried to make the reservation for a train Montpellier (France) - Madrid (Spain) with the company Renfe but I saw that it's not possible on the interrail website and that I should go to a train station. And that's what I did. But there, they explained me that I can't book that train from France, since It's a spanish company and that I can only do it in a spanish train station. But how am I suppose to book the train in a spanish station if it's leaving from France ? Can anyone explain me how I should proceed ? Is it possible to make this reservation ?Thank you very much
Hello, I have bought an interrail pass for 4 (2 adults + 2 children) and I would like to plan my trip to Spain for the Christmas holidays. But at the moment rail planner is not offering tickets for sale for these dates (between 27 December and 7 January), it seems that it's too early. The problem is that the trains are on sale on the websites of the national companies (SNCF and Renfe).I read on the forum that you can book via the national companies but I can't see how to book an interrail pass, they only offer to buy tickets at the normal price, as if you didn't have a pass... I can wait for the rail planner to offer them but by then the trains will be full. I'm afraid that time will go by and I won't be able to book any more journeys because everything will be full. Can you please tell me what to do? I'm getting very stressed about having a pass that I can't use. I thought it would be simple and that once I'd bought the pass it wouldn't be complicated to book seats, but I feel complet
Hello, I booked a Eurostar reservation with SNCB quite a few months ago.I paid €34 and that shows in my PayPal account.I just happened to check the email today and when I checked my ticket there were two reservations, both in my name and for different seats. They are both for same day too.There is also a total dossier value of €64.Only one ticket brings up a bar code.The reason I am asking about this here is to see if anyone else has experienced this phenomena of mystery tickets appearing.Also, I don't have access to my phone number ATM (well not unless I pay for a days roaming with my provider and I have a data eSIM) but the only way to contact SNCB on the app is by phone.Does anyone know another way to contact SNCB? I am tempted to just leave this and on the day declare I didn't book that second ticket but I'd hate to be told I have to pay for a seat, or something.
New to Eurail. Bought our tickets from Munich to Vienna through the Rail Planner app and when we went to make the seat reservations, I get a message at the end telling me they are sold out. We have a 1st class pass and tried booking 1st and 2nd class seat reservations in any configuration. Any suggestions? Will we get a seat? Or for that matter, will we get on the train? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
We have made seat reservations on the TGV Lyria Basel-Paris. Its a double decker train but we’ve been allocated lower deck seats -there was no choice on the Interrail seat reservation service.Is it possible to change the seat reservation numbers to get an upper deck seat?
Hi there, We have Eurail Global passes (1st class) and want to book from Nice Ville to Amsterdam Centraal via Paris on 10th Oct 2023.So far I can find the train journey for this date but cannot make any reservations!I started by looking on the RailEurope app and found relevant trains for the morning time but cannot book any of the journeys at all :( Idealy we would go Nice to Paris, then have an hour or so to change trains, then from Paris to Amsterdam. We considered an overnight train but it doesn’t appear to be an option. I have looked on RailEurope app, OBB, Bahn.de, the trainline and SNCF. Please see some of my searches and screenshots. Thetrainline had an option for the first leg to continue to payment but obviously we want to use the Eurail passes.Any suggestions on how we can get back from Nice to Amsterdam on the 10th or 11th October will be super appreciated. We have to fly back to New Zealand the next day eeep.Thank you.
Hi! I'm travelling from Utrecht Centraal to Budapest in november and for my final train, from Vienna to Budapest, the website says I can't book a seat reservation. It says the prices are unavailable. Does anyone knows how this works? 1) Is it full? 2) Can I not book it in advance but is there still a chance I can take the train? 3) If I book a seat reservation on the site on this train company (https://www.cd.cz/en/), can I use that reservation to travel with my Interrail pass? On the website I have the option to book a ‘reservation only’, but will that allow me to hop on the train with my pass (and thus not pay the ticket)? Also, if I try to make this reservation the site says the train is temporarily unavailable.In at least one of the trains that are part of my journey (also if I switch to a different date) I have this problem.Also I was wondering in general if a certain train says ‘reservation not required’ but you can optionally book it, how this works. Is there then a possibility
My parents and I are traveling to Europe for the first time this November. In order to build paperwork for our Schengen visa application, I booked train seat reservations ahead of time. But because of some inconveniences regarding our visa application, I had to change booking our hotels. This means that, now, the current seat reservation for one of our rides (ICE 78) is on the “wrong” day. I’ve tried canceling or rescheduling the reservation, but I cannot. My sister suggests that I make a new reservation on the right day. What happens to the previous booking if we don’t ride it?
Hey, I was trying to reserve seats for my upcoming France trip. To do so the rail planner app always transfers me to the eurail website. The problem is: The website wants me to login with „the account I used to purchaisr the pass“. Bit I didn’t buy the pass, I won the „Interrail German French“ pass. So I have no account connected to that pass. If I create a new account with the email address I got the pass send to, the website tells me „no pass connected“ and theres no possibility to connect my app or my pass to it. It also says that it’s not possible to get reservations without a valid pass connected. Does anyone know what I did wrong and how to go from here? I‘m getting a little bit desperate since the trip is very spontaneous and starts soon.
I’ve got a 5 Day within a month Interrail Global Pass and so has my mum. I’m trying to reserve seats for us on the Hamburg to Stockholm 22:01-09:56 train on the 11th of October. Everything I have read tells me to not use the eurail/interrail website to book reservations as they are normally less on the train company’s website. So I looked at sj.se and put in the passes for us both and have the following options:Seat: 330SEK (£24.60)Couchette: 770SEK (£57.40)Sleeping compartment: 1,660SEK (£123.74)Whole compartment: 1,654SEK (123.29) When I look at the Interrail.eu website I get the following:Seat: £11.36Couchette: £22.36Sleeper (2 in a 3 bed I think?): £45.52Is there a reason that the interrail prices are so much less? Somewhere I read that it was doubled on checkout and it was for one person only but then I removed one of us and the prices halved. Is there a catch I’m not understanding with the interrail website? I obviously would prefer to pay less and reserve through there but I don
