This area of Sweden is difficult to navigate (travelling from Finland to Sweden April 2023)I can’t find train times in Rail Planner app, only in Norrtåg timetableshttps://www.norrtag.se/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/Tidtabell_Lulea-Boden-Haparanda_Norrtag_Vinter-22-23.pdfHow come they are not in Rail Planner?BW, Nanna
Cannot get seat reservation for Rotterdam - Antwerp Sat 22 April
Trying to book the ‘reservation needed’ leg (Rotterdam to Antwerp 9.58 train Sat 22 April 2023) of my Leiden to Bruges journey. Eurail site says no reservations available and can’t get any further with later trains (won’t go to ‘Make Reservation’ option). Tried direct with Thalys, but they are not showing the 9.58 or indeed any other departures at all. Are there alternative ways of finding out if indeed reservations are all taken, and what the alternative options might be? I’m a newbie (last interrailed in 1974) so just trying to work out the system… Thank you.
Booking on the trainline itself
Does it matter that I can’t book on the Eurail pass site and therefore can’t see the trips on my pass app? Both times I have booked a night train.The first from Berlin to Budapest we had to have a seat reservation and booked it through OBB using our pass details. Then the second, from Amsterdam to Zurich, showed it was available and included but wouldn’t let me choose it to make the seat reservation that was recommended - ie my cart was empty. So I have also booked on OBB. Just wondering if it matters that I can’t book them on my pass. Or if I am doing something wrong/not seeing something obvious in the process.Thanks, any help appreciated!
Paris to Geneva
I bought 4 days eurail pass and this is my first trip to Europe. When I am trying to reserve seat from Paris to Geneva, it says around £102 for 2 kids and 2 adults. But if I check other website then tickets are cheaper for same route and same train. What is the benefit of eurail pass if reservation takes more money than normal ticket.
ICN Excelsior/Deluxe not available for (2nd class) Passholders?
My family and I needed to leave Sicily tomorrow and we saw that there was only Excelsior class tickets left. Inter City Notte tickets are known to be difficult to reserve online, we couldn't find any method to do so, and I was advised to go to a ticket office. Did so in Taormina and was informed that the cabin was first class and couldn't be booked with a 2nd class Interrail card. Is this correct? On ÖBB trains for example, all classes are available for passholders. We needed to travel on that date so ended up buying a full price ticket at 362 euros.

Global Pass - MobileApp 2 travellers - Night train reservation together
Hi...Thanks for reading….So here is the core of my question.Myself (M) and a friend (F) may travel together this summer. Each of us if I am correct will buy their own Global Pass. And if i understand this correctly...we can add their ticket to our pass pretty easily.However, there are times where we will want to share a double on the night train. Which means we need to book the double at the same time for 2 different people. (two different Global Pass numbers).How is this arranged in the mobile app? Is it even possible?What does one do if we both want to be in the same night cabin, but are starting out with 2 different Global Passes?Thanks -paul
Cannot book reservation when logged in
I cannot book a reservation while logged in. The ‘Book reservation’ button just disappears. Why?In the first screenshot beneath, the button is there but I’am not logged in.

Train lines from Faro, Portugal to Sevilla, Spain.
I am looking at the map of eurail routes and need to know if there is a short route from Faro, Portugal to Sevilla, Spain. I don't see one on the map but these cities are so close! We want to visit both and in order to get to faro to Sevilla it would be a very long journey back to Lisbon, Madrid, and then Sevilla.Or we have to rent a car which would be fine but to rent a car in one country and leave it in another is very expensive. Does anyone have experience with traveling between these smaller cities? And what might be the best practice?

I’m trying to book a reservation which it says it’s needed, but it’s also saying that it can’t be booked on their website.How can I get a reservation for a TER train? All I see on the sncf site is a way to “Buy” tickets, but obviously I don’t want to do that.

Madrid to Cordoba seat reservation
we have purchased a 2 month global Eurail pass for Spain & Portugal, Our trip begins in Spain on June 1st 2023. All accommodation bookings have been made so we know exactly on what dates we’ll be traveling from city to city in Spain and Portugal .Our question is regarding seat reservations. We’re aware that seat reservations cannot be booked online for these countries & need to be made either at a ticket office or at the station.We arrive Madrid 1st June & wish to take train straight to Cordoba. Do we run any risk of not being able to make a seat reservation when we arrive in Spain? Because of time of year we’re concerned we won’t get on the train. Is there some way we can secure a booking before arriving in Madrid?We are currently in New Zealand and will be the UK from the 10th May.Any help much appreciated
