Hello,I have read through a few questions here and couldn’t find a clear answer.I came across this on the interrail.eu site:The Self-Service lets you book e-ticket reservations up to 3 hours before its departure. You'll receive an e-ticket which we recommend you print at home.They recommend to print the e-ticket reservations. Now I am wondering if its okay to not print it and if I can use the e-ticket? Has anyone ever struggled with an e-ticket?
Hello ! Unclear explanation for me if you have to add journeys in Northern Ireland & Ireland. Scrolling down in "Options" doesn't give me somewhere the opportunity to add train stations in these countries. Could you please clarify ? Thanks !
I added a train in Italy manually as it was not listed, but I know it requires a reservation. Is it possible to reserve ahead for manual trips?
How does this work for trains that require reservations? I’m trying to reserve a train in Italy and the trip is not listed in Eurail. I added it manually as indicated in the post, but I know that this train is a high-speed train that will need a reservation. Is it possible to reserve ahead for manual trips?
Hey all, We are struggling to find out how to make a reservation by Italiarail or Trenitalia using the globalpass, this for a train journey from Zuerich to Firenze. How is this done? I only end up with the full price tickets, can you help me?Thanks!
Hi ! I just ran into this problem. I really wanted to take the nightjet from Munchen to Florence. But around that time there is construction work….Does anyone knows other routes that wil get me to Florence? Daytime trains are also fine..? If i look on the planner app it says that there is a train from Munchen to Travisio and then Travisio to Florence. But the traincode also says NJ which stands for NightJet so that got me quite confused.. Can some one help me? Thanks!
We will be travelling on June 18th from Basel to Paris. We will have to change trains in Mulhouse, in the train table it says we have 12 minutes between trains. We will travel with a toddler, so we are a bit slower. Is there any possibility to see on which track the train arrives and where the next one leaves?
Hi, I was trying to book a reservation for the train from London to Aberdeen, but it didn't work. It said that that's online possible if you book it directly at a train Station in the UK. I'm afraid though that there won't be any reservations left if I only book it once I arrived in the UK. Is there any other way to book it beforehand? Thank you!
I want to travel from Paris St Lazare to Bayeux on June 6 and return from Bayeux to St Lazare on June 8. Reservations are required for these trains. I have been successful in making reservations on all my other trains on the Eurail phone app, but for every train between Paris and Bayeux on these dates I receive the message, “No price results were found for this connection. It is possible that the train is fully booked for pass holders.” Amazingly, this same response is given for every Paris-Bayeux train, as many as 13 per day, on each of several dates; I can’t imagine that every single seat on dozens of trains is booked, so I suspect a systemic problem. Has anyone discovered an end-run around this problem, including not making a reservation at all? I know I can take slower regional trains on other dates, but this would greatly mess up my schedule. Please advise.
Hi,Last week, I tried to make reservations for 4 seats in the TGV from Nice to Aix-en-provence on May 30th, but couldn’t get any response although I clicked “1st class seat euro10”.Does it mean that the seats are already fully booked?Thanks for answers in advance.

Hey, I’m going inter railing for the first time this summer and seat reservations are becoming so confusing. I’m having 2 issues at the moment. I booked a train between Paris and Lyon and when trying to book reservations I can't find the specific train I booked but I need to buy a seat reservation why would this train not exist anymore? secondly I have another train booked between Lyon and nice, I can buy a seat reservation for one part of the journey but not the other and I can't buy it for any of the trains that day. is there still a way I can book this reservation not on the website as it won't let me or will I have to change my route,thanks in advance
Hi,I have purchased a eurail global pass. Today I tried to reserve a seat for a train ride on June-2022. I could see the the train ride in the self-reservation page in https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/. Also I tried to search for the same train ride in the Rail Planner mobile app. However, the mobile app does not return the specific train ride. I tested in both android and apple devices. Has anyone see the inconsistency between the search results between the Rail Planner mobile app and the self-reservation page in https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/ ?
If I look Interrail Rail Planner September time tables and seat reservations for Strasbourg-Bayonne (direct connections or via Paris) I can see trains that do not exist at sncf-connect or bahn.com. I can not believe that seat reservations for interrail are possible before normal tickets are available.What is the source for up-to-date September time tables in France?
I couldn’t find an overview of booking fees when buying reservations/supplements for various trains. Next to online platforms, it seems that local train operators charge different fees when buying reservation at a customer service center. Does such an overview exist? If not, please add info below, ideally with an online reference. It would be great if Eurail can aid in compiling/correcting such a list.NOTE: This is not about the reservations/supplements themselves, which are well documented. Online platforms:Interrail/Eurail reservation service: 2 € per seat b-europe (domestic TGV): 4 € per bookingTrain operators (online / local customer service):DB: Germany - France (TGV/ICE): 3 € per seat
I need to book the tickets from Rome to Salerno and from Salerno to Naples for June 13 and 17 respectively. They don't show up in your app yet. I sent you multiple emails and I have no answer yet. You incorrectly informed me that I could buy them through Italiarail, a service that they don´t provided since 2021. The schedules are already available in other providers apps but not in your app. I bought the eurail pass to simplify my trip and I can't finish buying hotels and flights because you don't update the app. It is a month and a half left to my trip and you haven't charged the trips yet. I need an answer and solution!
I have a reservation to arrive at CDG on a Friday in May this year and hope to depart soon after for Strasbourg by TGV and know a reservation is required. It is sometimes slow and difficult to get from the plane through immigration and customs. I should have 2 hours between arrival and departure of the TGV (morning). There is another 2 hrs 23 minutes later. Since arrival is on a Friday morning I expect the TGV demand to be high and am watching it now. If I were sure of the trip I could make a reservation now but plan to wait about another month.One strategy is to book the earlier departure knowing that if the plane flies at all I could make the later TGV. Another is just the opposite, i.e. book the earlier thinking that if it becomes clear that I can’t catch it in time I could possibly change the reservation to the later TGV. My wife will be waiting at CDG and will know the status of the flight and could make the change if it is clear we wont make the early TGV. She will be at
Hello fellow interrailers.Me and my boyfriend both won interrail passes through the discover eu competition, and we are traveling as a group. I got my pass before him, and added a journey in the app, a Nightjet train from Muenchen HBF to Roma Termini on 13th of June, with OEBBs NJ 295 train. We bought tickets for a sleeper cabin as well. Now when my boyfriend tries to add this journey to his travel plans in the rail planner app, it does not show up. Another similar OEBB train does, but it has a change of trains in Villach HBF and the train number is NJ 40295, and then in Villach it changes to train NJ 40233. The tickets we bought, and the journey that still shows up in my app, does not have any changes. Is it the same train? Does our train not show up because it is fully booked? What should we do? PLEASE help us. Kindest RegardsMira
Dear all This Saturday I am planning to go from Lille (France) to Barcelona (Spain) with my interrail pass. There is a change of trains in Lyon. For Lille-Lyon I can make my reservations for seats online, for Lyon-Barcelona I cannot - this needs to happen by post 6 days prior to departure (for which I am too late) or in a station. I live in Belgium, and here the local railway service (NMBS) does not provide seat reservation for trains to Barcelona (I really don’t understand why??). My solution is to go on Saturday to Lille (France) early enough and hope that it still will be possible to make reservations for my train from Lyon to Barcelona on that same day. Is there anyone who knows if this is possible? And whether I can check prior to departure whether there are still enough places free?Thank you in advance! Karel
Reserving sleeper cars: Is there anyway to ensure that we are booked in a sleeper car on these overnight trains, and not just in regular seats?
I have purchased global rail passes for myself and my family for a Europe trip In July/august. I have run into a question about reservations. There are several nights that we would like to use the sleeper trains. I can see that we can reserve these through yours website service. I also know from making my other reservation that seats will be selected for me, but Is there anyway to ensure that we are booked in a sleeper car on these overnight trains, and not just in regular seats. It appears that both seating types are available on this train.
Dear community, I have another question regarding my Interrail tour. I am travelling from Barcelona to Madrid with a train at 8 p.m. I was able to make a seat reservation for this train via Deutsche Bahn. However, when I tried to find this train connection in the Interrail app, it didn’t show up. What could be the reason for this? And will I have any problems if I travel with this train without that it’s listed in my app? (I have the seat reservation as a printed ticket though). Thank you in advance for your help!
