Hello,Going from Berlin to Amsterdam in June. A reservation is recommended, but not required. Is it a good idea to book a seat? If we do not reserve a seat, will we still be able to find a seat once we board the train? That is, does a ticket guarantee a seat, or do they sell more tickets than there are seats available?Thank you!
hiya! me and a friend just bought an interrail pass that we are planning to use throughout July... I'm very confused : we've started planning trains as we know July will be extremely busy, but a. cannot find where to book our seat reservations / how we say that we are taking a specific train, and b. a lot of trains that I found looking at the UK Trainline website arent available on the Interrail journey planner? (I've checked if interrail covers the specific train lines we were looking at and they do) - what do i do?
@Nanja Hey there :) As my boyfriend and I both have a mobile pass, we do not have a pass cover number. Unfortunately, we need to enter the pass cover number to book our seats for a train from Strasbourg to Paris. We cannot continue without the pass cover number so could you please give us 2 pass cover numbers so that we can book our seats?Thank you in advance!Best wishes,Marie

In Hauts-de-France, some TER are operated with TGV trains, labelled as TERGV, which require a supplement on normal TER tickets. In the Railplanner, not all of these connections show up, and those that do, seem not to require a supplement with Interrail passes. My questions:1. do these trains require a supplement for IR passes?2. is there a reason why not all connections are included in the Railplanner?
I have eurail passes for my wife and I and want to make seat reservations for several trips while in Italy. Is there any way to see the actual seats you want to reserve, or do they just get randomly chosen for you? We've traveled extensively in Germany and we have always been able to choose the actual seats we want. Thanks for any help, Dennis
Hey all, We are struggling to find out how to make a reservation by Italiarail or Trenitalia using the globalpass, this for a train journey from Zuerich to Firenze. How is this done? I only end up with the full price tickets, can you help me?Thanks!
Hi ! I just ran into this problem. I really wanted to take the nightjet from Munchen to Florence. But around that time there is construction work….Does anyone knows other routes that wil get me to Florence? Daytime trains are also fine..? If i look on the planner app it says that there is a train from Munchen to Travisio and then Travisio to Florence. But the traincode also says NJ which stands for NightJet so that got me quite confused.. Can some one help me? Thanks!
Hello, we just bought interrail passes for France and wanted to make a reservation through the Interrail reservation system for a night train to Toulouse. On the SNCF Connect website, there was the possibility to choose having a private compartment for an extra 45€, which is not available on the Interrail reservation site. So is it impossible to book a private compartment as an upgrade with an interrail pass?
hello there,we’re travelling through Croatia and Slovenia, two countries that only work with paper tickets for seat reservation. We’ll need 3 reservations. Can we avoid the shipping cost of 9 euro by combining all the reservations?Thank you for your answer,Fien
Hi community. I am really concerned because I bought an eurail one country ticket for Spain and I don't know how to make reservations with Renfe from Costa Rica because I want to book all trains before I arrived to Spain. Please can anyone help me? I don't know if this is only possible being in Spain. If that is in that way this pass is not worth it for my trip
Yeah, what I said in the title really…These are among the most popular night train routes on the continent, and not only is July peak season on a normal year, but 2022 will also be the first proper chance many people have had to travel abroad since the pandemic began. Accordingly there will be a lot of travellers planning to use these trains in July, and this track work couldn’t really have come at a worse time. :-(I’m aware that quite a few of the more expert users of this forum will already have known about this, but hopefully anyone who didn’t - and was counting on these trains for their itinerary - will see this reminder and adjust their plans accordingly.One possible alternative option for those who had been planning to come from Munich is the Trenitalia sleeper from Bozen, but this is on weekends only and only works for those travelling to Rome.
Hi there!I've got a question about the train connection between Athens and Patras. Me and my boyfriend would like to travel around greece with interrail. We would like to take the train from Athens to Patras, and then take the boat from Patras to Italy. I think the Interrail site is a bit unclear about this. Is there a good connection from Athens to Patras by train or do we have to figure it out another way?
