HI friends! I am brand new to the Eurail community and trying to book my first leg of my journey from Titisee > Freiburg > Hamburg > Copenhagen on 9/30 and arriving 10/1
I just called OBB directly to make a seat reservation from as all the research I’ve done says that making a seat reservation through the app is not guaranteed and is more expensive (can someone clarify that as a side note?)
I am buying a first class Eurail pass as this specific trip was required to reserve first class due to availability.
My problem is that the Eurail planner is now only showing a Nightjet Freiburg > Hamburg leg … this is exactly the same time as the Intercity train that I’m supposed to be on.
I’d really like to avoid any fines and the OBB service agent told me that the Nightjet is COMPLETELY sold out so I’d have to take the intercity but the timetable is exactly the same… i’ll just have to be in a seat. She confirmed there were still seats in first class for Intercity 60400 at 21:58…
I don’t know why the Eurail app is only showing the Nightjet
Can someone please help me figure out how I can save the correct train into my Eurail app? I’m afraid i will get fined if i have the nightjet loaded into my phone. I would really appreciate this!
Here’s the itinerary I’m looking for that I need to add to my EUrail planner. You can see the one with NJ on the OBB website even shows “ticket not available” while I can still purchase the Intercity ones… and the times are exactly the same.
Last question - if i am continuing to do seat reservations directly through the train websites or at the stations, how do I add the journey and activate it without having to pay for Eurail app’s seat reservation fee?
Thanks in advance for your help!
