Sweden - Norway (Finland?)
Hello!I am already on the road (railway) heading to Stockholm. I would to visit both Sweden and Norway and enjoy the landscape that offer a railway travel. I planned, for now, this simple route:Stockholm - Oslo - Bergen - Oslo - Trondheim - Bodo - Oslo - Malmo - Copenaghen I was thinking also to do the route Stockholm - Narvik, but it seems like very long and with no interesting intermediate stops. Do you recommend it anyway? What about Finland?I was able to book with SJ to get in Sweden. About Norway is it true that is it possible to reserve only by phone(Entur)?On the app I see ALL trains need a reservations, is it correct?Thank you :D
How many interrail days from Bucharest to Istanbul in May?
I think that the trip from Bucharest to Istanbul in May should count as one interrail day as there is a through sleeper from Dimitrovgrad to Halkali. My problem is that the Interrail app is coming up as two separate journeys on two separate days:Dimitrovdrad - Kapikule 22.50-00.45 on SaturdayKapikule - Halkali 2.30-6.34 on SundayHow do I avoid using two days of my 5 day pass?Thanks
Bordeaux - Basque country
Looking to travel from Bordeaux over to Spain to explore the Basque Country, San Sebastián and Bilbao would be ideal. However the trains don’t look the best, says it’ll be 26 hours of travelling which feels a bit much. is there anything we are missing or is that just the way it is? Cheers!,fraser
Up to date info for Sweden?
There have been a number of questions recently about upcoming track work in Sweden and people (including me) have said to check out the sj.se site for information on scheduled works.However, when I look at the page it talks of diversions and changes to schedules in April (last month) all the way back to February. I don’t see much for for May and nothing for June.Is anyone aware of any more recent or up to date information?
Traveling from Athens to Thessaloniki
Hi! My Friends and I are traveling to Greece for the summer and we wanted to buy the interrail Greece pass (not the island one) in order to discover continental Greece. However, when I use the interrail app to check the timetables of the trains from Athens to Thessaloniki and vice versa, it says that those trains are not available. What could be happening? It is going to be possible to travel Greece by train this summer? I know that last summer was not possible because some railway stuff... Anyways, thank you so much!

Reservation from Milano Centrale to Spiez Switzerland
My last eurail pass was in 1983! I’ve found EC52 direct from Milano to Spiez on July 10 at 11:20 in the Rail Planner app. When I go to book a reservation using the website, the direct train to Spiez doesn’t appear. The route when using the website reservation system has me changing in DOMODOSSOLA and again in Brig. My question is if I can just get the reservation from Milano to Domodossola on EC52, and then stay on that direct train without a reservation on to Spiez. Thanks so much, Tom

Soderhamn - Uppsala - Soderhamn Soderhamn - Gothenburg - Soderhamn Soderhamn - Copenhagen - SoderhamnI’ve had a look online and Google maps but want a rough idea of pieces (preferably the cheapest option)
Full price on SJ Nighttrain Hamburg-Stockholm
Hi everyone, I want to book a nighttrain between Stockholm and Hamburg. According to the Interrail’s planner, it should be possible (from 39€) but after buying my pass, it seems that there is no day where it is available (always “Seat reservations required from NA”). I try on sj.se too but even when there are some place available, there is no discount with the Interrail pass. Does anyone know how it is possible to book these trains (my pass is useless otherwise) ? Thanks in advance
Italy (Como SG) to France (Lyon) June 2023 using OBB
Hi everyone, I am helping 2 friends, who are 1st time Eurailers, with the ‘benefit’ of my experience of 4 years ago.😬 They are travelling from Italy-France-Italy in June. They have the first trip sorted (La Spezia to Como San Giovanni), but we're having problems with seat reservations from Como SG to Lyon on 16 June. We can book the 1st leg from Como SG (dep 0904) to Basel (arr 1256) or Como SG (dep 0950) to Zurich (arr 1227), but not onward to Lyon. This is using OBB website, following instructions from other topics.RailPlanner app says that 0904 trip from Como SG needs a seat reservation from Como-Basel and Mulhouse (dep 1357) to Lyon (arr 1656). The 0950 trip from Como SG needs seat reservations from Como SG-Zurich, Zurich-Dijon and Dijon-Lyon.Even if I break down the sectors, as other posters have suggested, OBB says ‘no ticket available’ for both options (only Basel-Mulhouse-Lyon shown below).Basel-MulhouseMulhouse-LyonWhat are we doing wrong, or is it too soon to make this booki
1st or 2nd class for Switzerland?
Hey everyone! I am looking at book an interrail pass for Switzerland travel, but I’m not really sure if its worth buying first class or not. There is quite a difference in price so I’m wondering if this is significant?From what I can see, the majority of posts are regarding space allowance but if its just for travel in Switzerland does this really matter?I am travelling with my boyfriend so I guess I wont be able to sit with him either?Is there any benefit price wise with reservation fees when you book first class? Thanks in advance!

Consuming 2 travel days for IC407 Krakow to Prague
Hey Everyone,I am trying to book the night train from Krakow to Prague and it leaves at 22:42 and arrives at 7:31 the next day. After checking on polrail, it seems that the train does not actually switch, and that you end up staying in the same car, but it changes operators and switches tracks in Bohumin. The app views this as a switching connection, and as such, it’s requiring me to spend 2 travel days despite it not actually switching. I would think since it’s technically a single train, it shouldn’t count as multiple days.Do I actually need to activate the second half of the trip as long as I get the reservation via polrail and flip the initial switch in the app for Krakow - Bohumin? Is there a way to do this without the app using 2 travel days?
Nightjet Sleeper Single Cabin Booking Issue
HiI’m trying to book a couple of Nightjet trains using a pass on OBB’s website.The system is not showing single cabins as available, but showing places in double cabins.The strange part is when I change the search to 2 passengers the same places in 2 berth compartments show. It’ll let me book them and go through to the credit card page. Question is will these be allocated in the same cabin? Thank you!
"No train" or "prices unavailable"
Hi everybody,Thank you for reading my message first and any help would be appreciated, nice day :)Here is our problem :Venice - Ljubjana 30/07 in the morning"Prices unavailable from Venice to Trieste for mandatory seat reservationsIs this because seat reservations are not yet available or should we find an alternative?Bari - Rome 12/08"No train”Rome - Milan 14/08"No train”For our other destinations, we are too early, so we will wait to book (90 or 60 days before on average).But for the 3 routes above, is it also because we are booking too early? Because the site does not give any detailsOr should we worry and think about another route?Thanks for your help :) Louise

Good morning.I am looking to book a train from London to Paris (26th of May) and Paris - London (3rd of June).Both dates are showing message “no matching connection”.

Reservations cost Brussels to Paris
We are booking reservations from Brussels to Paris. Usually the reservations cost $10-15 each. When I try to make the reservations it cost $32.50 each. Also I tried b-europe.com and it is $27 each. Does anyone know why it is such a price difference and cost more than normal?Also, I saw the regular price cost is is only around $43. So the savings isn’t much with the Rail pass. Any thoughts would br greatly appreciated.

Seat reservation Napoli to Catania
We want to book a train from napoli to catania, but when we try this the interrail website says we first have to go from Napoli to Florence and then to Catania. This only takes a lot of time while there is also a direct train from Napoli to Catania on the website of Trenitalia. Does someone know what is wrong? And if we even need a seat reservation for this train?
