I bought a Eurail Global Mobile pass recently, I’m having a lot of issues with Eurail's Eurostar booking process.On May 16th, I tried to booked London-Lille Eurostar seat reservations for two people for June 3rd on https://www.eurail.com/en/book-reservations#/. I paid for the ticket and the charges are fully processed (not pending any more) on my credit card. However, I do not see the reservation tickets on my account https://www.eurail.com/en/my-account/reservation-booking-details/my-itinerary, nor have I received any confirmation email. It’s not clear to me whether the ticket was actually booked, and this is putting me in a limbo because if it’s not booked, I would need to book other options (e.g. flights) as soon as possible. I contacted Eurail customer support about a related issue (#163688), and they mentioned “I can see that a pre-reservation was made for London-Lille on 03/06.” However, I still do not see the London-Lille seat reservations on https://www.eurail.com/en/my-account

Please please can someone help??? Thanks Lou
Hello, does anyone know if it is posible to order a seat reservation from interrail, and get the reservation ticket as a pdf, instead of sent to me by mail? I unfortunately do not have time to get the reservation by mail, So I would need it to print instead..
Hi everyone,my name is Emanuele and together with a friend of mine, I won an Interrail pass with the Discover Eu programm. We are now planning our trip and thought of taking an ÖBB Nighttrain (Amsterdam-Innsbruck) where a seat reservation is mandatory. Since we obviously want to have our seats next to each others, I kindly wanted to ask if this is possible and, if yes, which steps we have to follow to be seated next to each other.Thanks for helping! :)
HI I'm trying to book a seat reservation on the night train from Krakow to Budapest on the 18th of July and still this website doesn't give me that option. I have tried to book it on CD but i get to the last step and it says the ticket isn’t available at this price. It’s frustrating that i have an Interrail pass and i can’t book seat reservations on their website.
My train from Aulnoye-Aymeris to Paris Nord has been cancelled. I’m waiting for a train to Lille to Paris nord instead. 1 train from Lille straight to Paris nord requires a reservation, the 2nd has 3 change overs in between Lille and Paris nord. Is there any way that I can get the first train for free due to my original train being cancelled?
Hey, I want to take the nightjet from Rome Termini to Villach Hbf (first connection on the pic) on on Wednesday 25.05. at 20:17. The Railplanner App says I do not need reservations for that train, but usually you need reservations for all night trains. What do I do? Do I try to book who via the ÖBB webpage? Or do I not book and show them the screenshot showing that the app didn't ask me to book when they ask?
Hi guys, I will be travelling with my girlfriend in July and August. We are currently planing our route and will be starting in Santiago de Compostela. We want to visit Vigo, Porto, Lisbon, Faro, Seville, Madrid and Barcelona. On the interrail app it says seat reservations are required for nearly all of them. How and where do I book the seat reservations?
Hi.My interrail global pass is for 2nd class seats and we reserved our seat on multiple Trenitalia trains for 2nd class and our interrail email receipt says 2nd class under all the reservations but when we checked the tickets for the trains that we need to print out it says the service is 1° Business.When I looked on google it looks like business class is first class but our pass can only be used for 2nd class.What do we do can we still use the tickets???
Hello everyone,I bought 2 Global Passes (not activated yet).I want to book 2 Reservations (because it is mandatory) for a train from Basel SBB to Paris on 03.06.2022 and also on the same from Paris to London.Also for the way back I need to book these trains in advance.Somehow when I use the “book reservations”-tool on the eurail.com-website I can´t find anytrains. It is just loading forever.What can I do?
Dumb question, I know. But I just wanna make sure. All of those dots are stops where you can get off, right? I need to take a train to Köeln from Berlin but I need to take the train that goes to Bonn-Bad and I just wanna make sure that I can actually get off in Köeln haha.
Hi we are travelling in July (mobile passes). Trying to book seat reservations on the train from Budapest to Bled. There’s a few changeovers and it goes through the night which is why we wanted to reserve for peace of mind. On the interrail’s reservation site it is showing one of the trains (maribor to ljubljana) as unable to book reservations for. I looked on the OBB website and it also won’t allow me to book ‘seat only’ reservations for this train (says ‘not available’). But on the interrail site it shows all our connections for this journey as ‘reservation not necessary’ ie we can just get on the train with our interrail passes. So should we just turn up and do you think we will get on the train without seat reservations? Or does ‘not available’ mean the train is already fully booked and we will not be allowed on? I’ve heard that especially in places like Slovenia seat reservations are really not necessary, is this true? Grateful for any advice thanks :)
I have activated my eurail global pass, but every time I try to make reservations on the eurail website the page will not load. On the rare occasion that it does load there are often no prices listed and I cannot add tickets to my cart. I can see the train routes and prices that I am looking for on the app. Is this an issue with the eurail website and is there a way to fix it?
After much searching, I have finally come to understand how miserable it is to try to use a Eurail pass in France. This was not the case last time I used the pass many years ago. I now have 2 first class passes, and I cannot seem to make any reservations for any French trains. Eurail claims that they can do it, but everything comes up “price not available” even months in advance. DBahn also has the same issue. B-Europe says it can’t find any trains. My first leg is 05/27 from Paris to Bayeux (small town in Normandy). There are multiple trains per day going that route, and there’s no way they’re all booked at this point. I have $70 worth of long distance charges trying to call SNCF (didn’t expect that from my phone plan!). I wait on hold for 15 minutes, and the automated system says something very fast in French and hangs up on me. Great use of time/money! I’m completely fed up with this whole process. I’m about ready to cancel the stupid pass, rent a car, and drive everywher
Hello there,my boyfriend and I have recently bought the interrail Greek island pass for six days. Now we want to make reservations on Greek domestic roots. We called the call centre in Athens (number from the flyer +30 210 8919800), they told us we need a certain number that verifies our Greek island pass. Where can I find this number? It should begins with an I followed by several numbers. Kind regardskiki
Most trains say ''prices unavailable'' when booking seat reservations. Would it be possible to board without?
Me and my 3 friends are going interrailing for the month of a July. I went online there to reserve our train tickets but mostly all of the trains say “prices unavailable” as it is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. If a train requires a seat reservation will we still be able to board without paying for the reservation, will our interrailing ticket cover us? We are aware we would possibly be left with no seat but this does not bother us as we just want to ensure we get onto the train. It says on the websight to try booking a train reservation ticket at the train station but being honest we don’t want to rely on that as we are 4 young girls and we do not want to wait until the day to find out if we will be able to board the train or not as it could be sold out on the day as we are going at peak time and we do not want to be stuck in a foreign country we don’t know our surroundings in. So since it won’t allow me to reserve tickets as it’s saying prices unavailable will we s
Hi I’m trying to make my first resv (global pass) from london to amsterdam on june 8 for the 11:04 train but it says “Prices unavailable. No price results were found for this connection. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please try searching for another connection or check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation. If no pass holder seats are available anymore you need to buy a separate full fare ticket to board. So all the pass holder seats are full?Do I just go ahead and pay extra (31GBP vs 39GBP) on b-europe? or wait and risk it to book it when i’m in london the 31 May?
Hello. I need assistance with our passes. I purchased a mobile version of tickets for myself, husband and kid. I have downloaded the app and found the routes and times of preference. We purchased 1st class. I want to book our seats, but the app confuses me…I thought I could buy them on the app, but it’s saying to book on the website itself of the train company. Can someone please break it down for me so that I know exactly what to do? Thanks
I am trying to make a train reservation with my interrail pass from Rotterdam to London. First you have to log in. I did that so you can see the what reservations are availlable from ticket holders. The only day (3 june) we need to make a reservation, says they are all €0 and " prices unavaillable". I know there's a max. Ammount of interrail holders that can make reservations in an Eurostar train. But ALL other days seem to be just fine. Does this mean theres just a bug or something? Or are we not able anymore to make reservations for that day?. If so, this means we have to buy +€400 worth on Eurostar ticket for 1 train... That's is more then the Interrail ticket itself we bought. Does anyone know, if this is the case, if we need to buy those tickets, or is it possible to go without reservations & tickets....? Thanks
Dear community, I have a Global 4 day pass and will be travelling from Amsterdam to Barcelona on July 16th or 17th. I am trying to reserve seats, but there seem to be problems in doing so. The booking tool mentions that prices are unavailable; however, it says this same thing for months ahead, so that is why I wonder if there are no trains available, or whether there is something else preventing me from reserving seats. I want to book as soon as possible, to ensure I can still reserve the seat :) Any help is highly appreciated! Best regards, Kaya
Hello, similar to others, I have received 1st class reservations for my 2nd class interrail ticket for italy. Unfortunately, the trip starts in Switzerland, which makes it impossible to change them at a ticket office. I already contacted you (interrail support) and didn’t received an reply since two days. I also contacted trenitalia via phone. They said that they are not able to exchange the ticket and that I definitely cannot take the train with that reservation. He also mentioned that it won’t be possible to ask the on-board staff for a change of that reservation. Hope someone can help me. I don’t want to buy a second reservation, obviously, and don’t want to stand with my child in Zürich in the end without a possibility to continue our travel. Best,Max
Hello,my girlfriend and me want to make a trip to Avignon. I’m using an Interrail ticket, she just needs a ticket back to Hamburg, so she just book one normal ticket via the DB App. (She will travel to France two weeks before me with her parents and their car, thats why she just needs one ticket back)Now for the ICE from Karlsruhe to Hamburg she can choose a Seat and I will book the Seat next to her via the DB App. But how do we do that for the TGV from Avignon to Karlsruhe? We never traveled to France via train, so we have absolutely no idea, how we’re able to book two seats next to each other. There seems to be no Option to choose a seat in the TGV.Hope there is any way to make that work. Thanks for your Help!
