Hola, vivo en Chile y quiero reservar asientos en un viaje de Paris a Barcelona teniendo yo un Eurail Pass electrónico, pero al realizar la reserva, y cuando me pide los datos la página me indica que la reserva se emite con Billete en Papel, y como yo estoy en Chile, no me permite pagar, y por lo tanto no puedo reservar. No tengo una dirección en Paris donde me puedan enviar los billetes.Como lo puedo hacer para que la compra sea con billetes e-tickets?Gracias, por la ayuda.Saludos,
I have had an awful time using the Eurail App. I bought 4 passes for our family of four. I have used the app to note first day of travel being May 23. The app didn’t show availability for travel from Milan to Florence so we bought the last few seats available online, not using the Eurail passes! Now we have incurred another $300 that could have been saved using the pass.Is there anyway we can convert the tickets (bought online, now printed at home) into tickets using our Eurail passes. We are afraid to cancel the tickets because they may not be available to buy again through the app. Help!
The following is a reply to @Angelo‘s post at the bottom of the thread, which it took a great deal of mental strength for me to copy/paste elsewhere and thus preserve the sanctity and cleanliness of that most vital resource 😅I suspect a fair few people would already have known about this development, but it needs to be heard loudly enough that as few 1st class passholders as possible find themselves disappointed; particularly given that this information hasn’t been updated on all parts of the Interrail website (https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/reservations/reservation-fees/international-train-reservation-fees).---Definitely not topical (*sorry!*), but I have to say for the sake of consumer advice, that I’m glad now this booking fell through, because I then tried to book via Thalys’ own call centre. I found out that they have now stealthily removed the quota system that allowed a certain number of 1st class passholders into the excellent Premium class (with Paris & Brusse
I have a interrail global pass. I want to go Italy-Venezia. I have to do seat reservation for it. But I could not on app because my enterance adress is Turkey and I’m now in Germany. Ticket office also couldn’t. They said that you must do it on app. What should I do? This Emergency because I am waiting train station.
Hi everyone,I am currently planning a trip to Sweden and I am thinking about taking the night train from Hamburg to Malmö at 23:59 on a Friday. Do I need to spend one travel day for this one minute until midnight? The website says that journeys between 12am and 23:59 are considered travel days so I am not sure about my situation. I will continue with a different train in Malmö, so the Saturday will be a travel day anyways.In case, I’d have to use the Friday as a travel day, can I also just already take an IC/ICE within Germnany to get to Hamburg even though I am not leaving the country on Friday but on the night train sometime Saturday morning (I am from Germany so this is about the home country rule)?Thanks a lot!!
Hi community, I am planning a trip where I need to travel from the UK to France (via Eurostar) on a specific day - 12th September 2022.I am aware that I need to have a reservation to travel on the Eurostar with an Interrail pass. However, when I try to use the reservation tool to check if reservations, I’m not sure because it says the pass reservations have ‘mostly sold out’ - I only need 1 so as long as they are not completely sold out I’m fine!? I don’t want to get a pass until I know I can travel. I have read some other threads in the forum about using the rail operators websites to check reservation there but as far as I understand Eurostar does not sell reservations without tickets. Tickets available but that doesn’t mean they would have Interrail reservations.
We are planning to travel van Bar to Belgrade to Sofia to Istanbul around the half/end of July, but are trying to figure out the Belgrade - Sofia leg of the Journey. I came across some mentions here (including the site of the man in seat 61) stating that traffic between Belgrade and Sofia is still suspended.However, if I have a look at several sites (Serbian railways, rome2rio, railcc, etc.) I'm given an option from Belgrade to Nis, (after a long stopover) Nis to Dimitrovgrad and Dimitrovgrad to Sofia. Does anyone know what the current status of this connection is, where I might be able to check it, and if there are other possibities in case the service is not availble? Thank you for your help
Hi! So I’m planning my trip that I am about to do during late autumn/winter and I really want to make it as a cheap experience as possible. Therefore I am aiming for trains that doesn't require reservationsI am totally new to this but I have done a lot of research, though there are some formulations I can't wrap my head around. For instance when I search for connections with no reservation required I sometimes see this grey statement that there is no information available about that particular train, even thought I only chose to see search results with no reservations. What does this mean? Is it cancelled or is it a commuter train with no booking what so ever?Also when I look up connections on the rail planner app it doesn't necessarily say this, it just says when reservation is mandatory, but when I check the facilities it sometimes says “no reservation on part of journey”. Does this mean that there is a specific distance during that ride that costs money? It often says this when a re
I have Eurail Global Pass and I am trying to book seats for Paris-Barcelona for 27th July 2022 in 1st Class for (1010-1654) but it says on the Eurail website that it will be a "Paper Ticket" which will be delivered to my address. I will not be able to receive the Paper Ticket in time due to travelling. The seats will be Sold by the time I reach Europe so booking at a local station is not an option. is there any other way to get the ticket like on Email? What to do?
It’s quite frustrating because I can’t press the “continue to traveler details” button. I have tried to book for only one trip after I read that usually that happens when you try to book several trips at once, but it’s still not working for me. Not loading, nothing. Any solution to this?notes: I have the Eurail Global Pass and traveling with 4 travelers
I am trying to book a reservation for a journey from Paris, France to Nice Ville, France, however, due to a technical glitch on the website it won't let me reserve a seat. The reservations are for sure available when I'm not logged into my account. I need a pass cover number but I have a mobile pass, can someone please help me get a pass cover number from my online pass?
My paper reservations won't arrive in time because of shipping errors. Can I somehow get them at the station?
So I booked my reservations with plenty of time in advance. Most are e-tickets but 2 of them are on paper: BUDAPEST-KELETI (Hungary) - BRASOV (Romania) BRASOV (Romania) - WIEN HBF (Austria)However, the postal service somehow has messed things up and my letter is being sent back due to an incorrect address issue. This means I will in all likelihood not receive them in time.So my question is whether I can somehow go to the station in Budapest to get my paper reservation based on my order number?Thanks,Duarte
Hey everyone, I am trying to book a reservation for the Eurostar from Paris to London on the 14th of January (it absolutely needs to be this date), but the Interrail reservations tools just tells me that there are no schedules available yet. I have been checking the website for a couple week, but they have not been updated yet. On the actual Eurostar page, however, the train times are already available. I am somewhat concerned about getting a reservation, as the Interrail website advises you to book the Eurostar about six months in advance. Can someone tell me when the schedules will be up? I would be very grateful for help! Eva
I was tempted by the marketing and totally failed to understand own country travel.The objective was to take a 2 month global card and leave my French home to visit Switzerland, Italy, Spain and stop in at home, France, for northern clothes to travel to the UK. I now believe that I can only do 2 days out of 60 in France and almost half of my preferred routes use France. Logically because France is right in the centre of all the countries.Am I correct in the residence travel rules? They seem ridiculous.Has anyone got a good plan for such a trip?Thanks
I’m am trying to book the overnight train from Budapest to krakow. When doing it on the pol rail website the only options it is giving me is to collect the tickets in Poland or get them shipped. However I am already travelling and am booking the train for 3 nights time. I have tried to ask at the train station of the country I am currently in but they was unable to do it. Could anyone advice how to book this please by getting an e ticket maybe.
Hello again!I’d like to go from Madrid to Porto on the 4th of July. Since I already looked up this question I know that some others tried or want to try the same thing. i k ow there is no direct train from Madrid to Porto but does anybody know an alternative route? I only found a bus which drives between Madrid and Porto. Currently the price is about 13€ and it would take 9-10 hours I think.
Hello, Does anyone know if seat reservations can also be made at the Berlin HBF station? I tried all possible websites and interrail booking system but I cannot make a seat reservation from Berlin HBF to Poznan Glowny for tomorrow. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello, I’m considering to buy Greek islands pass for do some island hopping this summer. But as I saw there is no online platform to book reservations for ferries and it’s necessary to call or send an email to book. I’m a bit sceptic how it works and if I send an email will I get my confirmation of reservation soon to be sure I can take certain ferry. Does any of you have experience with those bookings?
