Okay. I’ll try to be coherent in this question. I’m trying to take the high speed train from Paris to Barcelona. I have a 4 day global pass. I’m currently trying to get a seat reservation and it appears that they are available but when I choose the day and time I want it actually books me for the NEXT day. So I want 06 October, I have checked 5 times to make sure I’m getting the right day but 07 October is what is in my cart. I have tried for multiple days and it happens for all of them. Does anyone know why this is happening??Second, if there is no guarantee of a reservation what the heck is the value of the pass? I’m going to be on a tight schedule so only have the 4 day pass. But if I can’t get a reservation I will have wasted the cost of the pass, correct? I’m not going to be able to add trips elsewhere. Last, if the seat reservations are limited, it doesn’t make sense to require them at the station, right? Presumably they will sell out fast the day of. And then you’ve REALLY waste
Dear community, I hope you can help me with my question. I have a global pass and I am a German citizen. I am planning to take a night train from Zürich to Hamburg on September 22nd. The train starts at 19:59 in Zürich and will pass the German border way before midnight at 21:50 still on September 22nd. It arrives in Hamburg at 08:00 on September 23rd and I will need to take an additional train to my hometown from there.My question is: does the 22nd or 23rd count as my inbound journey day? Will I be able to take an additional train to my hometown after my arrival in Hamburg on the 23rd with my Interrail mobile pass? I am aware that I could split my travel into two legs if the train would cross the German border after midnight. However, this is not the case with this connection.I hope I made my question clear. Thanks a lot and best wishes!
Hi, in my app I’ve chosen to travel mostly with trains that do not require seat reservations. I tried to book a seat for one of them (specifically through DB site) because in the website was written that the reservation was recommended, however once I tried to pay it told me it was impossible to book. Since this train in the app doesn’t need any reservation, can I still get on and just stand instead?
Hi there,My qeury is regarding booking a reservation. It is my first time and I want to see an I doing it right. The journey is on the IC407 from Krakow Glowny to Wien HBF on the 3rd of Dec at 10:52pm arrival 7:00am. I plan to use this as a sleeper. So when picking the route the app says reservations start from 4 euro, when I go to book through Interrail option, it only gives me one option for 11 euro? and doesn’t state what I’m actually booking, seat, couchette etc. If I try book to use the other payment option it gives me on the app (PKP website), it’s making me pay for the train ticket along with the bed/seat choice, i found somewhere that said there should be a discount drop down list including interail pass as an option, but not to my avail.? After doing some research and believe i can book a single couchette for the night through the “polrail” website. It seems quite expensive tho, so i would love to know has anyone booked this route and also what are my best options going forwar
Hello!I really need to book the night train from Krakow to Budapest on 31 July. However it tells me that prices are unavailable. I understand it could be fully booked but it is the case for every dates I've looked into and even for most daytime trains. Can you help me ?
Hello everybody,I want to travel from Strasbourg (France) to Kassel (Germany). For the first train from Strasbourg to Karlsruhe a reservation is needed. For the second train, from Karlsruhe to Kassel, there is no reservation needed. When I want to buy this connection, I only have a reservation for the first train, for the second not. And that confuses me. When I bought my tickets for my outward journey from Germany to France, I had one train with reservation and one without, too. But there the train without reservation was booked too, so in my Mobile pass I have a ticket for that train. What do I have to do now? How can I book trains where no reservation is needed?(I have a mobile pass) Best regardsJohanna
HiI am planning my first Interrail adventure. My first journey is from Sweden to the very north of Germany and is with 5 connections, mostly with short transfer. The risk of missing a connection is therefore present.When I connect a journey to my Interrail pass (not bought or validated yet) will the ticket be valid for the all connections or do I get separate tickets for each part?RegardsRobertPS: I will be using the App, no paper.
Hello, me and my girlfriend bought global interrail pass since we plan to go to norway on august.

I booked multiple reservations on Saturday as part of a month long trip. The money left my bank account but I have not received a single email confirmation and the reservations are not showing on my account nearly 48 hours later. I need confirmation as I have hotels booked in multiple cities.
Hello everyone!I am writing to kindly ask you a question (anyone aswering will be much appreciated). I re-booked the seats as my prior order went wrong (apparently when I first tried there was a technical issue with Italian trains), this time I received the tickets in my email but I can't see the order in the Reservations Overview page in my Interrail account, is that normal?.Moreover, does anyone know when I’ll approximately receive the refund for the first order? I did write an e-mail to the custumer service, they read it but never responded.Thanks in advance for you help and you kindness. Hope you have a nice day
Hi!Do you have to make reservations for the ICE 9574 between Karlsruhe and Strasbourg? The interrail.eu (or anyone else) does not let me book Karlsruhe-Paris although it lets me book Strasbourg-Paris on the same train… After being in contact over the phone with SNCF I know that there should still be interrail-tickets available…
If you travel 1st class (also interrail), you can choose your seat on the TGV, normally.Due to the fact that SNCF no longer makes it possible to book domestic train journeys online in France for Interrail, I (temporarily? ) have the following question:If you contact the call center of SNCB INTERNATIONAL in Belgium, 0.30 euros/min(!) , would they also be able to book the desired seat or not?I think I've done it once, but it took a lot of effort.

Hello, I’m totaly frustrated. I booked an Interrail Ticket thinking of traveling from Koeln to Dax on the 9th of July. I serched for all the trains and found them. After I bought the ticket I got to know that there are no seats left on the train from Paris to Dax on the 9th. No matter which time. Now I serched for hours and hours how to get to Dax. I’m so frustrated because there is no help anywhere and no answer on my mail to Interrail. Did I pay 250€ for nothing and can’t get to France on top? Is there someone with an idea what to do?Thanks!
Hi Everyone,I’m new to this so please forgive me if I’m missing something. I’m planning a trip in late september through middle of October. I’ve bought the euraill global 1st class pass. So, am now trying to book seat reservations and every single long trip (eg prague-budapest. Budapest to Zurich) says seat not available...I’ve looked at the eurail and the obb sites and both say this. Am I trying to book these tickets too early (I’m hoping this is the case!) or is it normal for these seats to be sold out 5 months out? Thanks so much for your help….
Hi everyone,I’ve started my interrail trip today. I’ve made reservations for most of the trains, but I’m wondering whether I should make a reservation for:EC 99 Zürich - München, andEC 323 Zürich - Lugano (only the Swiss part of the journey)So to be sure, I’m not asking whether a reservation is required, because I believe it isn’t, but whether a reservation is recommended.
It is my first time traveling with Eurail. I want to make sure that I will be able to get a train into popular cities at the most ideal times, but I cannot figure out how to reserve seats when they don’t require you to. I would prefer to have a seat reserved on every train I’m taking so that I don’t have to worry about not being able to take a train, is this possible?thank you!
Hii, I hope I can contact someone via this way. Because my friend and I are experiencing some problems. On July 10th we are going form Ljubljana to Split with a stop in Zagreb. 8:30-21:30. But when we want to book reservations for these trains which is required. It says that there are none available. How can we still book seat reservations? Is there another way? I hope to receive a reaction as soon as possible! Kind regards Nina

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
