I am having difficulty making 1st Class seat reservation for 3 adults for IC 666 Rapallo to Milano Central Friday 23rd June at 11.41.I can purchase full price tickets but that defeats the purpose of the EURAIL Pass.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone, I want to reserve seats for Barcelona - Freiburg for the 12, 13 or 14 of August.I am new to Interrail. In the past I’ve done the route Barcelona - Freiburg, but SCNF keeps making things complicated.I used to do Barcelona - Paris and then Paris - Freiburg but, the TGV Paris - Freiburg doesn’t show up anymore.Also, I don’t understand how should I reserve a seat with SCNF? I have bought the Interrail Global pass. I read on this forum I have to call them? Is there an online way to book this?The Interrail website gives me reservation prices but when I click on each option the price disappears and there’s no booking option. Also the price is quite high, like 48€. Is that usual?Also RENFE says they will have AVEs Barcelona - Lyon before summer, but they are still not rolling. Any help on how to do Barcelona - Freiburg by train and on how to get SNCF seat reservations will be welcomed😊
I live in Switzerland and have a general pass, so I can travel on any train in the whole country without buying additional tickets. I want to buy a one country pass for italy 4 days to go visit my boyfriend in Rome two weekends during a month. Now, since by buying it I could travel without buying an additional ticket in Switzerland and in Italy, but not from Switzerland to Italy and back, I need to buy a ticket to get through the border. My question is, can I buy one ticket from the last stop before the border in Switzerland to the first stop after the border in Italy (Como) or do I need to buy the ticket from the stop I get on the train to the stop i get off (Milan)?
I booked my reservation from Brussels to Barcelona and made the payment, but I got an email from you saying that, although you received the payment, due to technical glitch the reservation couldn't get through. I replied to the email choosing the option that you will rebook it for me. However, until now I cannot see the reservation neither on our app nor your website. Please help me! I cannot reach a human at EU Interrail. I have written them several times but they haven't responded yet...
Hi, we are travelling to Marseillan Plage in the summer via Paris with a one country pass for France.If we take the TGV from Mannheim to Paris we will have to pay until Forbach and if we take the ICE from Karlsruhe to Paris we have to pay until Strasbourg, right? Just wanted to make sure as this is the first time we are travelling by Interrail with a one country pass and I can’t seem to find this information anywhere on the Interrail site. Thanks,Annika
I have the interrail pass and travelling to Paris on the weekend. The last train needs seat reservation but I cannot reserve through the app. It says “Pass holder reservation may be sold out”I have everything planned and really cannot cancel my travel! Is there any other way I can get the seat reservation?Thanks!
Hey Guys,as you see in the title, I have booked 2nd class seat reservations for trains from Zurich to Milano and from Milano to Ventimiglia via interrail, but I received reservations for the first class in the documents attached to the email. What can I do know? I think I won‘t be able to travel in 1st class with a global pass for 2nd class? I already tried to contact the costumer service, but it takes a really long time for them to respond. Can anyone help me?thanks in advance,David
Hi We’re exploring options for our trip and are slightly confused as trip options which come up under ‘Rail Europe’ don’t appear as options under the interrail - one of the journeys is TGV but the others aren’t. Has anyone else experienced this and if so can you advise on why and how this happens? Another thing is that we’d reserved seats with Deutsche Bahn for a journey which now no longer exists and they never let us know - so now it looks as if we’ll arrive at 11pm rather than 9pm (with a 9 year old in tow so not best pleased).Happy to provide more details but any general advice to start with would be gratefully received. Thanks
I recently bought a couchette reservation on the interrail website booking system for Intercity Notte 798 from Napoli Cle to Milano P Garibaldi on the 6th of july. As the confirmation e-mail I got from interrail confirms, I paid 86€ in total for two persons (41€x2 + 4€ booking fee). However the pdf tickets I got attached to the e-mail say that I only paid 3€ per person and they are for two seats, not two couchettes. Vagonweb.cz shows that coach 3 (where I have been allocated) is normally a seat only coach. And trenitalia support confirmed to me that I have indeed been given a seat, but refused to help more. So now 80€ have been stolen from me, I have no way of getting this money back and I don’t even have the couchettes I paid for! I contacted interrail support with that stupid confusing chatbot, but three days later I haven’t got any response… I am leaving soon, and I would like this issue to be resolved, 80€ is a lot of money! I appreciate that it isn’t easy to have a perfect websit
Hi! Why can´t I book a ticket at the https://www.b-europe.com/EN with a interrail mobile pass? When I try to book a seat (Seat reservations required) the page asks for my interrail pass cover number and when I type in my number it says it's not valid and it also says it only works with a paper format pass. Is that correct? I have also seen lots of people with the same problem. I want to go from Paris to Bordeaux Saint-Jean on the 25 of June at 7:11 pm. how can I get a pass cover number when I have a mobile pass? What should I do?
HiI have Eurail global pass for 33 countries but i did not find the booking for the following: 1) BRATISLAVA HLAVNA STANICA (Slovakia) to STRBSKE PLESO (Slovakia) (24-07-2022)2) KRAKOW GLOWNY (Poland) to WARSZAWA CENTRALNA (Poland) 30-07-2022I am getting following message:Prices unavailableNo 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. Any one please help me in this booking. Is there any other alternate transport available using this pass. RegardsAbdul Qayyum
When I search for reservations for 28 December, lots of booking times appear, but for each one, a red exclamation mark appears with the following statement Not available from Eurail.comThis seat reservation can’t be booked on our website. Check 'More information' for other ways to book.I have tried to click - More Information and the solutions it offers, do not work either.Is this related to the current rail strike?Or is there some other issue I am unaware of?I am trying to use my eurail pass from Australia.Getting worried that we will not be able to get there!thank you!
Do I need seat reservation for ICE 944 from Berlin Hof to Celle, Germany for late October (I have Eurail Mobile Global Pass)?
Good day to you all.I’m preparing to take a morning train from Berlin Hof to Celle, Germany. Let’s say between 7 AM and 9 AM. This would be in late October. I see ICE (InterCity Express) train leaving Berlin Hof. I take it this a high-speed or bullet train. I have the Mobile Global Pass. On Eurail.com, it says seat reservation is not required. I see 1st class seat is 8 Euros. 2nd class seat is also 8 Euros. Is there a need to buy a seat reservation? Or, it’s not expected to be busy at this time?I understand I can check how busy the train is on the bahn.com site but I’m having trouble finding where precisely it lists how busy the train is. I will be carrying hand-luggage with me, as well. I was hoping to store it in a luggage locker at the Celle station. Are there any luggage lockers at the Celle station which can store hand-luggage? Maybe this question should be moved to a new topic.Thank you for any help!
Travelling from Milan to Nice, Paris. What is the cheapest and shortest train route. The Eurorail requires to buy a global pass. But I will most likely take this train trip only once. What is my best option. Also please provide the website link with your recommendation. Thank you so much
I am preparing myself for travel across Spain to Portugal in the busy Christmas period by looking at the RENFE and Rail Europe apps to judge ticket availability, particularly on the San Sebastian - Madrid route. Just as an example, yesterday RENFE was showing ALL trains for TODAY as FULL whereas Rail Europe was showing availability on ALL trains. Same goes now for tomorrow’s 9.02am train.This baffles me - but the key question is what would the ticket office in San Sebastian be showing now? Would they have a reservation to sell me because in fact the Rail Europe app is showing a truer position than Renfe?Thanks, Scott
I’m currently in Spain and trying to book a night train from Switzerland. It allows me to pay for the reservation but it says it’s going to send me a paper ticket. However I don’t have a fixed address and afraid that paper ticket will get lost somewhere. Isn’t there any option to get any electronic ticket or have them hold it at the station in Zürich? I can just travel across Europe and arrive in Zürich not knowing whether I have a night train or not. pS - i’ve tried calling the help number for OBB several times and it’s just an endless loop of German. I don’t know if they ever answer at all. Healthier your instructions are slightly off. Pressing one doesn’t do anything at all. Also the new longer open 24 hours. But I’m not sure if they take 20 minutes to answer or two hours. And it’s running down my Skype credit every time I’m just sitting here on hold because it’s strangely much more expensive than calling other foreign countries.
Hi All!I'll be visiting the UK and would like to purchase tickets for a one day trip to Paris and back. However, when looking up information, I'm a bit confused as to what to pay? Would like to do 1st class seats there, but I am reading that I also have to purchase a reservation. Can someone please guide me to a good website on purchasing tickets and what excited is needed? Also, do I need a global pass for this one day trip?
Hi, I have been trying to book 4 tickets from Paris (Gare de Lyon) to Barcelona-Sants on the 23rd of December (at 10:14 am). Every time I try to checkout to pay, the website tells me that there is an error and that I have to find other options. I tried to book in every train on the same day and on the next day, but still the error message appears. Is there any other way to book those seats?

I wasn’t able to book a nightjet ticket for July on the Amsterdam to Vienna route via ÖBB as there weren’t any routes showing in my search. So I asked ÖBB’s customer services why this was, and got a reply today: “The reason why the Nightjet from Amsterdam to Vienna is not bookable is due to construction works. The timetable still has to be worked out for this. Therefore, please keep trying to book the desired journey.” Does anyone know about this, and when the timetable is likely to be “worked out”? I am a bit confused about the advice to keep trying! I’ve got a whole family holiday resting on very specific travel requirements, so would appreciate a bit of help understanding if I should just find an alternative if if it’s likely I’ll be able to book this route in a few months. I could ask ÖBB but the last reply took 11 days so thought it would be faster here. Thanks!
Hi I need help again,so I added my friends to my trip with their Mail and their order number. We all have the mobile pass, however when I want to make a reservation, the prices are unavailable. Since we have a really long trip (Vienna-Copenhagen), we would like to sit together but I do not understand how we are supposed to reserve a place next to each other.
Hi, I’ve seen on the website eurail.com that Estonia and its railways Elron should be covered in the Global Pass. My plans hae changed a bit and I’m currently in Estonia but I’m unable to find any of the Estonian towns in the official Eurail timerables and thus can’t “purchase” any ticket. What can I do? My Pass will be valid from tomorrow. Has anything changed and Estonia isn’t part of Eurail anymore? Thanks
