There is no longer an overnight train from Milan to Paris. So I booked a high speed train during day but when I went to make reservations I could not as “it was not possible”. Likely sold out. So I used the suggested sites to book and ended up having to pay €90 for a ticket!!! Not only that I booked hotel in Paris for the night with hopes of travelling on to London the next day only to find out that there are then no Eurostar tickets at all for weeks. This global pass is bit of a farce to honest and it’s starting to add up to a pretty costly ticket. I also had to fly to Venice to start it as could not get overnight train from Prague (where I lived) back then 4 weeks ago either! After trying so many connections, FlixBus and ferry’s etc the really only option to get me to Dublin without it taking 3 days of non stop trains and boats is to fly. So I’ve dropped another €240 on flight from Paris. Basically I have used 4 days of my 10 day 2 month pass and couldn’t really use the rest! Bit of
Hello ! I can’t reserve a seat on the train from Geneva to Brig on the 2nd of August at 10:11 (I tried on OBB but it says that no ticket is required and I couldn’t find the seat reservation only on SBB). Do you think that I should buy a ticket (for 19,62 €) or is it not necessary ? Thank you in advance for your advices, Océane
Hi, I tried to book a reservation on interrail website but because of technical issues I didn't get any reservation (it doesn't appear on the website and I've got an email saying that they had a problem) even though the system took my money.Is it possible to have a refund? Thanks
Hi! Yesterday I made 8 seat reservations, the money was taken from my account, but I can’t see or find the reservation anywhere… not on “my side” or in my email. When I made the reservation I got an confirmation on the site, but now it’s gone…? Anybody else who has the same problem?
Hello everyone! A few days ago I booked this direct train from Basel to Italy, I paid 13 euros. The problem is that I never received an email with the seat reservation. In my account I can’t find it either.. there is 13 euro taken from my creditcard so I made the reservation but I have no information about it, not even a reservation number. What can I do? I already tried to contact interrail by answering questions to this bot to find out how I receive my reservation but i haven’t heard anything back. I will need to use the trai in 2 days. On the 22th of July..what is best to do? But another reservation or go without reservation? Or is there another way to receive my seat reservation?Kind regards,Adina
Hey everyone, I am very new to this but I wanted to go travelling starting monday for 4 weeks. I havent bought my pass yet but I wanted to get the eurostar on monday, starting from liverpool to paris. I wanted to stay a few days before heading to spain and so on. However, I have realised I should have booked the eurostar sooner. Should I book my interrail ticket and then look to see if there are seat reservations I can make? I am very confused about how to make these reservations and to see if there is availabilty on the eurostar, please help! thanks in advance :)
I am hoping someone has a way around all the interrail site seat reservation restrictions. I plan on going from Lyon to Madrid on August 1. The first train is not sold out, it cannot be booked on the website. Can I only book it in-person? Other routes are sold out, I think. Are there any other "magical routes" through some other city or route? Thank you all in advance!
Paris-Warsaw on August 5 is the last stop on my journey, but all of the routes have a problem within them. Most routes from Paris on the morning of August 5 have sold out, which is a problem, since I have a bus from Warsaw already booked. I would be most grateful for at least a magical train suggestion from Paris to Berlin. Thank you in advance!
1. We have planned our route via interrail planner, how should we confirm and get tickets for the journey? 2. What is happening in the situation, when one train is late and we won't manage to change our train on time? Should we take another train withe the same ticket we have or should we book another train ticket?3. And how should we count the outbound journey day? We leave on 26th of August at 3 a.m from Poland and we change the trains in Germany and we arrive to our destination point in Slovenia the same day at about 8 pm. Should it be counted as the outbound journey or the change of trains starts the first day of the journey?4. And the final question, We want to book the Glacier express in Switzerland, we have to buy ticket via Glacier express website, and we will choose the reduction for interrail. So is it counted as the travel day and should we put this journey to the planner?
Hello. I am planning to travel from Budapest-Keleti to Wien Meidling with the regional train RJ 66. As far as I understood, regional trains do not need reservation; you simply have to hop on. However, the app says that reservation is compulsory. Has anyone used this conenction and could tell me if they required a seat reservation?Thanks a lot!
So I’m planning a trip through Eurail and have already found out that alot of the trains don’t match on the app vs online (I did as much research as possible and I know that the app isn’t always reliable since timetables aren’t always current). My question is how reliable is the Eurail website timetables? A few of the trains I need require seat reservations (despite conflicting with the app saying seat reservations are only recommended), but when I double check the trains with a specific country’s timetables there are vast discrepancies. I’m afraid to make a train reservation on Eurail if the train doesn’t end up existing. Any advice on this? Should I just trust the Eurail website and go ahead and get the reservations?
Hello :)I just bought my interrail ticket and try to organize my first interrail journey!I`m planning to take the eurostar from Bruxelles to London but I`m not sure what I`m planning to do in Bruxelles/ how much time I need there jet so I`m nor sure which time I should reservate the train.Is it possible to reservate a train and then spontaneously rebook it, to be able to take the train that`s scheduled a few hours later? Or would I have to pay the reservation fee again?Thanks!
Hello everyone!I'm going on my DiscoverEU trip next week, and the first train ticket, Warsaw-Berlin, is a paper ticket. While booking seats, the Interrail website does not let me put in my Latvian address, as the ticket will not arrive on time. Is there a way to get the paper ticket digitally and print it out myself?Thank you all in advance!
Hello, I want to make reservations for my trip on the Interrail website. I add the desired reservations to the cart but the cart remains empty and it is therefore impossible for me to pay. Has anyone ever had this problem? I tried to contact Interrail support but they don’t answer. Thank you all.
HelloWe want to travel (with our two kids) on a night train from Split to Zagreb in August (on a Monday night). The reservations tool seems to say we don’t need a reservation, which I am sure is not true! We want to book a couchette room so that we can all have a bunk. I have spoken to the Croatian railway company HZPP, but they said that with an interrail pass we can only reserve the couchette in person at the railway station. We will only be able to get to the train station on the day we want to travel. We can’t afford not to travel that night, as we have a tight schedule the next day. Does anyone know if it gets full up? Is it safer to book and pay for a couchette separately? it’s not expensive as there’s a special discount currently. Any thoughts very welcome! Thank you
Still on Monday I booked seat reservations from Vicenza to Milano Centrale, from Strasbourg to Paris Est and from Paris Est to Bruxelles-Midi. To this day I haven’t recieved the confirmation email with my seats despite the payment being processed and the bank report stating that the money has been collected by “Eurail Utrecht NLD”.It has been two days since I first contacted the support service and I recieved a single email by an operator on Tuesday in which I was asked to send the payment ID, thing that I did. After that I never heard anything from anyone. Also my seat reservation overview is empty. I should leave on Monday and there are no more seats aviable so I’m stuck in limbo seeing as my travel companion has managed to book his seats without any kind of problem.
Hello:) I looked for quite a while here for an answer of my question, but was not able to find a solution.I would like to book a reservation for the night train INI1960 from Siracusa (21:45) to Napoli (7:22). I would like to book two reservations for a private cabin. On interrail.eu it is just possible to book a 4 person cabin. On italiarail.com I can select it, but due to the known issue with this website I can not book it (The problem is, that they want an 8 digit Passholder number which is not available on the mobile app). On trenitalia I could also book a 2 person private cabin, but of course the whole ticket, I am not able to just book the reservation.Which option do I have to buy just the reservation for a private 2 person cabin for this train?I was thinking a long time to purchase the Interail ticket. It is my first time, and unfortunately this train would be the first travel of my interailtrip, as I am starting in Siracusa, and for the reason that it is so expensive on the Tre
Hi, this summer my girlfriend and I going to interrail in East Europe. We want to go from Sofia to Bucharest on the 5th of August, but it's impossible to book this train. Is there any other website to book this trip with our interrail ticket? Thanks for helping us out!
As I can’t make a reservation for the Bucharest Istanbul train online, and yet would like to avoid any potential disasters as I am travelling with my panicky father, would there be any way for someone to make the reservation for us at Bucharest train station/is there any way at all that I can make the reservation in advance: We will only be arriving in Bucharest a couple of hours before taking the train, so that’s why there could be a problem. In any case, how full would the train be likely to be in September? Thanks
Hi,My husband and I were originally scheduled to travel from Prague to Salzburg via train on August 8th. Our original schedule had us taking a train from Prague to Linz and then catching another train in Linz and arriving in Salzburg. I received an email that there is a “discrepancy” with our trip and that our connection may no longer be available. When I looked at the timetable (https://fahrplan.oebb.at/bin/query.exe/dn?start=1&S=Praha%20hl.n.&Z=Linz/Donau%20Hbf&date=08.08.2022&time=10:04), it appears that our original route is no longer available. Instead, it appears that we would need to take a train from Prague to Rybnik, take a bus from Rybnik to Linz, and then catch our original train from Linz to Salzburg. My question is: can I use my original ticket to board the new train and bus, or do I need to be issued a new ticket? I don’t see a way to change the ticket on the website without paying for it again. It’s also not clear on the timetable who the bus operator is.
Hello!It's the first time I'm using an interrail pass and I would like to have your advice on something. My sister and I were planning to take the night train from Hamburg to Fredericia on the 17th of August, departing at 23:56 and arriving at 4:39. According to the app, it's a train whitout seat reservations recommended. For more safety we reserved seats for all our journeys but I have a problem with this one : I can't reserve seats (I tried several websites) but I can buy tickets for 57,80€. The trains just before and just after can't take reservations either. We are staying only one day in Hamburg and we have a train connection at Fredericia so we don't have much room for manoeuvre. Do you think that we can take this train without reservations and not encounter difficulties or do you think that we should buy tickets even if it's a bit pricey?Thank you in advance for your advice,Océane
