Someone please help! We went to the train station in Barcelona to reserve our train to Montpellier for next week.Unfortunately they said that 2nd class was sold out for the time we wanted and only had 1st available. They said it would be 22 Euros per person so we said OK. We are now second guessing ourselves are not sure what we’ve just purchased will be accepted. Does anyone know if this sound about right??? They saw our passes so surely they would say something if this was not allowed??We have 2nd class passes and are going to be catching the French TVG Train. I’ve heard that they allow you to upgrade but just don’t want to get kicked off or anything. 😬
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 everyone!We are having some problems booking seats fromBudapest. The eutrail site says that we can not book ourseats because it is a paper ticket and it must bedelivered, but it won't arrive on time. We need the ticketfor our journey back home (from Budapest to Milan) on13rd August.We tried to choose other trains from Budapest, but theproblem remains (apparently every train leaving fromBudapest needs a paper ticket); we also tried to write theaddress of our hotel in Budapest (as the messagesuggests), but again the problems remains (it says itwon't arrive on time, too).Could you please suggest us a solution? We really need away to come back home that day.Thank vou in advance ♥️
Hey, Is it possible to use your interrail global pass for the ferry trip from Tallinn to Helsinki? If so, do you simply turn up and board the ferry like we do the trains? I’ve researched the ferry and can see the times and prices available, but if there is a way to use the pass to save money that would be preferable! I’m soon to begin my 2nd interrail experience in August, and cannot wait :D
I cannot even start describing how complicated it has been to plan my travel to Spain! I wanted to book on the eurrail app 2 weeks in advance but I could not book the Spanish train from France to Spain because they only work with paper tickets (?!) and they assumed that 10 working days would not be enough for them to arrive. I the called Renfe, SNCF and in a desperate attempt even Deutsche Bahn to try to book these seat reservations. Nothing. Went to a train station in one of the major cities in Italy, they also couldn’t help. So basically there was no way that I could book the seat reservation even though there were places available. I had to leave it up to chance and hope that once in France I could book the seat reservation. Turns out that even though there were second class tickets available at full price, there were none to be reserved for interrail passes (are there quotas ?). Some hours later understanding how complicated it is to travel with the regional trains (2+ days of trav
I have booked a travel star from London to Paris on 17 august.I am trying to book a train from Bolton to London Euston on the same day in the morning. There is no online option to reserve tickets and the train station in Bolton said they have no idea about inter rail reservations. Anyone able to help?Thanks
Hi, I'm trying to get on a train from Basel to Amsterdam on Aug 1 around 3PM. If the train is fully reserved and I don't happen to find a seat, will I be allowed to stand in the train while waiting for someone to get off in the coming stops? I read that in some review but just wanted to make sure.
Hey! I need to go from Berlin to Gothenburg, and one of of the trains to go there (Hamburg to Copenhagen) seems to be fully booked for weeks! Does anyone know what will happen if I just enter the train without any reservation, and just sit on the floor? Could i get kicked off or get a fee? Or is it okay?
So as many have noted, it’s almost impossible to get a reservation crossing the border from Hamburg to Copenhagen.I’ve done some research, and what’s really strange in my opinion is : the fact that you can board the train from Hamburg to Flensburg (closest station to the border) without reservation, and then you can get a reservation from Padborg (the first station on the other side of the border) to Copenhagen using the travel.b-europe.com (DSB) website. It’s the same train (IC 394), same schedule… But if you try to get a reservation for that same train but on any leg that crosses the border (e.g. Flensburg-Copenhagen), then you’ll get an error (from both Deutsche Bahn or DSB).It doesn’t really make sense to me, basically the train is supposedly full just for the Flensbug-Padborg leg… It’s really strange.
To avoid difficulties obtaining the (expensive) reservation for the high-speed train, I was planning to travel to Barcelona using the regional Rodalies train from Portbou. Interrail passes are valid on these services, I read. Very concretely:Are there ticket gates at Portbou? There are definitely ticket gates in Barcelona. How easy is it to find staff to open these gates for Interrail pass users? Does anyone have experience with this?Thanks!
I have been trying to reserve 3 seats from northern Italy to Paris for weeks now. At first, I thought it was because it was too early, but now the website says all the tickets are gone. Does anyone know a way to contact interrail or the relevant train companies please?
Here is my situation:I bought my Global Pass for 4 days for the 2nd class seats. I planned out my trip in the app with all of the trains that I would need. None of the trains show available seats and are all sold out. Is it possible to pay an extra fee for 1st class tickets to still get on the trains with my 2nd class ticket? I don’t mind changing my pass for a 1st class pass.This is my planning:Amsterdam to Paris on the 4th of AugustParis to Barcelona on the 7th of AugustBarcelona to Paris on the 13th of AugustParis to Amsterdam on the 14the of August Thank you for your help in advance!
Hi,I already have used the interrail ticket for several times, but this time I really have trouble getting reservations and now travel time is longer than expected. I know that I am late this time for reservations in the next two weeks in France, but the last time it worked for me. So, it would be nice to see if reservations are possible for my train connections before I buy a pass and then I could decide against it. Is this possible? GreetingsMartin
So I am planning my first ever trip with the Eurostar soon and it seems quite more complicated than other trains. I wanted to ask you all, what do I have to do when I arrive at the Eurostar station? (Bruxelles-Midi in my case). Do I just walk to the platform and everything I have to do will be there? By the way, I have seen that I have to arrive very early at the station, I already have that planned. Thanks for help :)
..and if so, how?Me and my girlfriend have Interrail passes and we are going from Florence to Venice tomorrow. Frecciarossa operated by Trenitalia. We made reservations and it clearly says that the tickets need to be printed and in "physical form", otherwise we could be fined. We have the PDF-files with the PNR and QR-code. Do we need to print the ticket and if so.. can we print it at central station in Florence? Thankful for your answers.
I Wanted to go from Wien to Venezia. In OBB it says that ticket is not available, which I guess that this means that is free for Interrail users. But, in the other hand, in Rail Planner says that I have to book a reservation to get into that train. What does that mean?
Hi! I’m now planning to cross the border of France to Spain by going from Bordeaux to Hendaye, and walking to Irun from there (30 min walk according to the SNCF planner). However, when trying to go from Irun to Araya (eventually Pamplona), there is a reservation to be made with a small fee. I cannot book this in advance, the ‘how and when to book’ page only states I should book at major train stations AND the warning that I should book in advance… Has anyone done this trip section who knows how to book in advance?
Hi, about 2 weeks ago I booked seat reservations for my EU rail pass for my family on the TGV from Perpignan to Paris on 27 Aug. My credit card has been charged but I've had no email conformation, and when I email customer services I get no response. Any ideas how to sort this would be welcome, thanks!
Hi everyone, I have already made reservations for the trains for my travel route, only now, by double checking, it tells me that the Brussels-Midi - Amsterdam Centraal route is mandatory. When I bought the reservations it said it wasn't. Can anyone tell me which are the mandatory routes and which are not? my journey is: London-Amsterdam on 07/08 at 08: 26-16: 14. Amsterdam-Berlin on 09/08 at 20: 30-05: 36. Berlin-Prague on 13/08 at 09: 16-13: 35. Prague-Munich on 15/08 at 07: 38-13: 18. Please help me that I can't understand.
Hi!I'm trying to make a reservation for a train but it is not possible to pay. I can put it in the cart but i can't checkout. It's like that for a few days now and it's a bit problematic if i can't make a reservation.Thank you for your answers!
Hi allI would like to take the train from Athens to Thessaloniki on August 16th, but the Interrail app indicates a compulsory seat reservation. I cannot do this via the Interrail website (Not available from Interrail.eu. This seat reservation can’t be booked on our website. Check 'More information' for other ways to book.), but I can’t seem to find a way to reserve a seat via the Hellenic Trains or Happyrail websites either.Does anyone know how to do this? I will be in Athens from August 8th on - would it be an option to make a reservation at the train station in person? Thanks in advance!
Hi, I have a train selected from Wien Hbf (Vienna) to Krakow Glowny (Poland) that requires seat reservation. On the app it requires me to go to an external site. I can either book with the CD or Deutsche Bahn; however, when I go to the sites and find the train it has no option to allow me to even reserve. I do not travel to Poland (hopefully) for a little over a month and unsure if the timing is not allowing me to reserve? Someone help please!
