Hello everyone,I’ll be travelling with interrail this summer, together with my friends, and we’re looking at the different ways of reaching Split from Bratislava/Vienna. The easiest way would be using the Euronight train going Bratislava-Vienna-Split, but I can’t find any way of booking reservations on the train for a lower price than the ticket itself. ÖBB, which is the only site where I find tickets to the train, doesn’t change the price when the interrail/eurail discount is chosen. Is this night train not included in the pass/sold out on pass holder seats, or is there a way to get reservations without paying for a whole ticket? If there isn’t, what are the other options for a (low-cost) connection between these cities using only one travel day? From what I can tell, there’s night trains from Zagreb and Budapest to Split, but these seem even harder to book reservations for. I’ve been looking specifically at the train departing 28th of June, but this appears to be the case for other d
Trying to book tickets for a train from Edinburgh to York on my mobile app. Trains leave like every half hour. Most require seat reservations, but several don’t. Reservations are only a few dollars so I’m thinking I’d like to get one just to feel like my seat is secure. I can’t figure out how to purchase it on app though. It says I need to do it in person. So confused.
Where it says ‘domestic trains’, does that mean for only trains inside that country (this is for Germany) or does it mean for all of Europe. Or, does international mean anywhere outside of the country that these rules apply (the rest of Europe). Eg. if I were to travel from Berlin to Brussels would I be able to take any of the Domestic trains or would it have to be international?
I’m hoping to travel from Faro to Lisbon, and the eurail app says a reservation is required, but I have to make that reservation in person at the train station. To me, this seems risky, because what if the train is full by the time I get to the station? This is the only train I can take, so I can’t risk it being full.Has anyone ever had issues with a train they were hoping to reserve being full by the time they got to the station? Is there any way to avoid this risk? I have a mobile pass, by the way, if that changes anything.
I'm going to Zagreb from Milano tomorrow and now this "Error-message" occurred, when buying the seat reservation for the first part of the trip (Milano to Trieste).It initially said that I don't need a reservation, but I'm not too sure now.Would love your opinions!
I want to book a sleeper reservation for Paris-Tolouse on May 28 and potentially back Tolouse-Paris June 7. I don't see reservations open for this train on the interrail reservation service. There's only a suggestion for a bus on the 28th. The option to buy a full price ticket on the official SCNF website doesn't show up as well. Does it mean it's just booked up on these days already?
Hi there, I am doing a little research on whether I want to buy a Global pass with Interrail and I need some help from experienced travellers here. My travel plans are basically flexible travel whenever I want to go somewhere I hop on the train. I want to go towards the south of France and Spain first, probably going into Portugal at some stage, move back up through Switzerland and Italy, Germany etc. Now, I am looking at a slow travel plan, so go from Amsterdam to Paris, from Paris to Lyon etc etc. BUT, If I look up the train from Amsterdam to Paris on this website I get: We can't find any trains that match your search. Please change your search and try again.If I look it up on any other booking website such as Omio, there definitely is a train available..? Then I look in the Interrail App if I can find trains (mind you, I do not have a pass added yet) and they state that there are trains but the seat reservation is FROM €35!? Per person? that seems insanely pricey after spending 73
We have global pass and cannot seem to reserve any trains from Amsterdam to Berlin - always shows the error one leg is not available whether its a connection or the direct train, it can’t be reserved. It takes me all the way to payment and then suddenly the error appears. We have mobile passes, I tried booking on b-europe and it says we need some pass cover number which is only a paper ticket.Same issue when trying to book from Prague to Salzburg, one leg cannot be booked, other can. Tried to go on m.cd’s website and it says “The booking period for this reservation has not yet begun or has already expired.”Can someone please help? Its so difficult to make multiple reservation with constant error messages.

Pouvez-vous nous trouver des sièges?
Hello,I have a Global Pass and I’m trying to make reservations for an overnight train from Paris to Rome on May 8th with sleeping accommodations. The first train reservation from Paris to Turin seems to be available as usual. The second is a nightly train between Turin (Torino Porta Susa) and Rome (Roma Tiburtina) from 20:40 to 05:53. When I try to make a seat reservation through the Eurail website, the reservation shows a message: Prices temporarily unavailable Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservationThis message has been there for a few days. I have tried the app, it refers me back to the Eurail website.There are instructions on the Eurail website that recommend booking online with ItaliaRail as an alternative. The instructions say that you are able to select “Global Pass” in the offer menu to book reservations only, and that way you do not pay the price of a reservation plus an additional ticket. I am not able to find this option for a
Hello,I am a travel agent and booking train travel on behalf of my clients, one of whom uses a wheelchair. They both have Eurail passes, but they want seat reservations on all the trains so they don’t have to do anything themselves. The tickets that are eTickets are fine because I can see the reference number, which I use to go to the individual rail provider websites to change their seats to wheelchair seats. However, on the printed tickets, they will be receiving them, in a month!! I can’t wait that long to make the changes to their seats. How do I figure out what their booking reference is on these tickets??
There is a journey I want to take that can’t be found in the Rail Planner app, so I need to add it manually. I am traveling with my family and adding all trips to all five of our passes. The manual trips either don’t appear at all or appear for a short time and then disappear. I’ve also had another journey that wasn’t added manually disappear from the passes of two of my daughters. It seems I am unable to add any journeys at all for the two of them for May 9. We have two month global passes and they have been activated but we haven’t taken our first travel day yet. We are using iOS version 23.1.0 on an iPhone. Thank you!
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?
Travel in France and Italy; are reservations required, how much do they cost and can they be avoided?
Hello, considering buying a 50% FLASH SALE: 2 months continuous.I plan to travel in October from Prague to Barcelona, go back to France and stay a month travelling in France and the other month in Italy. And want to answer three questionsHow much additional cost does it take to get to Barcelona if I need not use TGV and want to use the cheapest way possible? I didn‘t succeed with this alternative route in the planner https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/reservations/reservations-france, so could you confirm that this possibility is available? Is it possible to use regional trains in France without reservations. For example, from Toulouse to Montpelier, from Montpelier to Marseille, etc.? And how about travelling in Italy, from Genes to Florence, Rome, Naples, Venice, is there a way to travel without additional costs? And if not, how much it will usually be?

Hello!I'm traveling with a global pass (2month - 15 travel day), I have the mobile pass. I'm a French traveler. I've starting my trip and I'm currently in brussel. I need to be in London next week. However, when I want to book a train on the app, it is counted as an outbound ticket, because my train is passing through my country of residence. Is it normal? Thanks you in advance
My partner and I have had to cancel a Spanish Interrail trip and rebook other European destinations, due to the dishonesty of EU Rail. Booking seat reservations in Spain is ridiculously complicated (you either have to be in the country at a specific station, or try to navigate the phone system to order a paper ticket ).Also, we calculated that seat reservations for a first class pass are extremely expensive -almost equivalent to buying news passes each! And the fact that many RENFE staff apparently DON’T recognise the EUrail mobile pass is worrying.WHY are RENFE even still part of EU Rail, when you can’t book seat reservations by email and they are disinterested in EURail customers?What is the point in using a fist class EU rail pass, where seat reservations are an added, extra financial cost?We are extremely unhappy, as we were looking forward to visiting Spain, but the apathy of EURail and RENFE have crushed this dream.
Hi! I’m in Split, Croatia at the moment. My plan is to get from here to Greece before taking a ferry to Italy. The problem is that I can’t find any reasonable (train)connections from Croatia and to Greece. Apparently there aren’t any international trains from/to Greece at the moment but I’m also having difficult time trying to find trains from Croatia to any other direction than north to Budapest and Ljubljana for example. So, how can I get from Croatia to Greece. It doesn’t have to be direct connection as I don’t have any spesific plans and am more than happy to visit other neighbouring countries as well! Thanks in advance!
