I’m tying to book seat reservations for 4 from Barcelona Sants to Valencia Sorolla on June 24 but the specific train time (18:15) I need (that is listed on RENFE site and on Rail Europe) is not listed on Eurail so I can not reserve my seats. I called Renfe and they said Eurail pass holders can only book that train 3 days in advance-- is this true? Also he said there were 125 seats left for that particular time but couldn’t tell me out of how many total so I don’t know if this is good or bad for my chances of getting a seat if I wait until I am in Spain to reserve? I will be traveling from Montpellier to Barcelona earlier that day and need to connect to that specific train to get to Valencia. Does anyone have any tips, advice or experience with this? Thank you!
Family travelling from Brussels to Cologne on a Germany country pass (the route is covered).I found a train in the Interrail app that says “reservations not required” but I thought I’d play it safe and reserve seats anyway. The German site bahn.com says the train is fully booked. So, which is it - can we travel without reservations, or is the train so full that we won’t get on even without reservations? It’s only a two hour trip so as long as we can get on I’m sure we can sit on our bags if we can’t find a seat. Just worried about actually getting on the train. Same situation for all trains that day or I would have booked whichever one I could.
Hello, I was wondering something. I booked a ticket on the 4th of july for the Amsterdam to London Eurostar. If I decide to spend a little time in Rotterdam, will it be a problem if I board the Eurostar in Rotterdam and not in Amsterdam ? Thank you again for your help, and have a nice day. Sylvain
Hey there,I already have contacted the customer support, but in the email they said that they would get back within 2 days :/Here is the problem: I have booked two reservations for my trip that is tomorrow, hence the urgency of the problem. The payment worked well and I received an E-mail with the payment confirmation but NO E-Ticket.…I really don't know what to do as I have to depart tomorrow...
I am trying to go from Amsterdam to Berlin and do it overnight w a friend, we are going to travel to Frankfurt first. When booking a seat reservation can you not pick your seat on EUrail website? If not, how do you go about picking your seat together on trains that require a reservation?I have the mobile global flexi pass if that helps.
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
Hey,I am going to be starting my travel from Bologna/Italy. I was wondering if booking reservations for each train is a must. For example, If I were to go to Florence from Bologna which takes 25mins, would it be okay not to book a reservation? Or do I need to buy 1 for sure? Also, when I go on interrail’s app, it says for most of the train tickets, I must book a reservation. How can I know when I need to book a reservation? Can I just not get 1 for short trips?
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’m thinking about buying a global pass but I do have some specific trains that I need to take in Spain. I’m planning on going to the DB Reisezentrum tomorrow and asking about making a reservation in those trains. If they are willing to make a reservation, can I make them without having bought the Global Pass yet? Or do I need a pass number or something similar to make the reservation? Thanks in advance!
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
Hi all, I've seen that a few people are having issues with reservations but essentially my partner and I have a global mobile pass and are attempting to make a reservation for a train from Rotterdam to Paris on 10 August. However, we are getting the issue "No price results were found for this connection. Please try searching again or find an alternative way to book." Has anyone received this error specifically and got advice to the best way forward? I've also noticed this for future train trips we have planned in August so any advice would be really appreciated :)
We are traveling with three children next month, two of them have their own interrail global pass, but our 3 year old is too young for his own pass. But he's a little too heavy to be sitting on my lap for hours, so I wanted to include him in our seat reservation (ICE, Germany to France). I was told that wouldn't be possible unless I purchased a seperate ticket for him, at full price. I can't believe there's no way around this, or surely Interrail would have an option to add a toddler pass or something like that? Has anyone else had this problem?
Good evening and thank u all in advance. It’s the first time I’m doing interrail and I’ve found out some problems that are driving me crazy. In some trains that DO need reservation, I cannot do it because it says “reservation unavailable”. I am writing down the concrete trains and dates so it is easier for you to help me. 30/07/2022. Zagreb Glavni Kol 18:40 → Ljubljana 20:5431/07/2022. Ljubljana 21:10 → Villach HBF 22:49 I have already seen the same problem with other trains in which the reservation is not mandatory, so I think it’s not such a big deal in those cases. But I am really worried about the trains I’ve written down before. I hope you guys could help me.Thank u so much!!!!!!
Hello, I have a little doubt concerning trains without reservation.we just have to go in the train, and show our interrail pass to the controller ? Or we have to call the train before take it to make sure there are seat for us in the train ? And if there are no more seat in the train, what we do?
Are there some magic words that you can say to train employees that help them understand the pass and it’s discounts? I was just in a French station and they wanted 40eu for two people to take a 20 minute high speed train trip. I have always paid 20eu even to take a 4 hour high speed train. when I was in Spain I could see their computer screen and apparently there are 20 different passes they can choose from. I tried to tell the lady in the station today that it was a Eurail pass but she had no interest in seeing the details. As a result we are wasting a few extra hours take slow trains today.
Missing itinerary in Eurail site - 7/30 NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam missing from search, but 7/30 NJ402 Zurich to Utrecht is reservable?
I am planning on doing my reservations using a 5 day/1 month Eurail pass and one of the legs is to take OBB Nightjet from Zurich to Amsterdam on 7/30. I see NJ402 servicing this route on 7/30 from Zurich to the Netherlands.However I do not see NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam as an option when searching on Eurail’s site. Checking OBB’s site and Trainline I do see NJ402 Zurich to Amsterdam route as an option, but Eurail’s site only shows NJ402 going from Zurich to Utrecht. Is this a bug in the website? I don’t want to book Zurich to Utrecht; I want Zurich to Amsterdam and clearly NJ402 goes towards Amsterdam Centraal but for some reason the site does not list it as an option.Alternatively is it possible to reserve not on Eurail’s site for train days valid on a Eurail pass? I guess if I can reserve elsewhere and circumvent Eurail’s site that might work but I wanted to reserve all the seats I needed to on Eurail’s site out of convenience.
Hi, would anyone know information about getting on the train from Gard Du Nord to Bruxelles? Do you present your ticket before boarding or onboard? We can’t find anyone with information for Interrail or travel at all. Some help would be great
We want to travel (via France) in Spain and Portugal with the interrail-ticket in July and August.Do you have any tips for these countries?For example we found out that in France they only have limited capacities for interrailers and now we are way too late for reserving high-speed-trains in France, which is a big problem. If we would have known that earlier… So maybe there are similar things we should know about Spain and Portugal?E.g. is it true that we can reserve seats only at local train stations in Spain and Portugal? Is it possible that then they are sold out as well?Is it possible to explore also smaler towns and villages with the interrail-ticket in these countries or is the railroad network too bad? Are there maybe buses we are allowed to use?Thanks a lot for sharing your experience!
