Looking at buying an interrail pass for a long journey. The eurostar 1st class is all sold out and the rest of the journey will be sleeper, so there’s only part of the journey (Zurich to Wörgl) that I would to take business class.

Can I purchase 2nd clas reservations and then buy an upgrade? From 2nd to 1st, then pay the 15 euro supplement for business.

The difference in interrail pass classes (£180) is cheaper than buying this ticket separately (£310) so cheaper for me to get the 1st class pass than buying it separately, but if I could have 2nd class and an upgrade, that would be better.

Upgrade is the difference between 2nd class standard fare tickets and 1st class standard fare tickets of ÖBB.

To use Business Class you need to pay 15€ on top. You get better seats than in first class and a drink in Austria.

Keep in mind that reservations on Railjet are optional but on some routes highly reccomended. To Italy there is a additional fee to pay on Railjet.

Reservations are 3€/train. For free with a first class pass on trains with optional reservations by booking via ÖBB the reservations.

So it’s possible to upgrade the interrail reservation to 1st class? or only if I have 2nd class tickets? If so, how do I do that?
