Hey,
 
when i make a reservation on this site i have to enter my MobilePass Code. Does this - if done on my Computer - effect in any way my pass on the Smartphone? Or does it activate the pass? And which role plays the Trip I connect on the Computer if i have another Trip connected in the mobile App i plan to use for the journey?
 
Kind Regards,
Florian
 
Edit: The Train in question is the INT 461 from Bucuresti Nord to Sofia, so if anyone knows another Website where booking is possible that could work aswell

The Trip on the website is not connected to the Trip in the app.

Here is some useful information from the experienced travellers in the Community regarding both planning, reservations and activation of pass and travel days. 

 Planning

The rail planner is normally not up to date, as it only is updated once a month, so to be sure of the time table you better check the timetable and availability on the websites of the national railways. The bigger national railways, like DB (Germany) SBB (Switzerland) and ÖBB (Austria) cover several countries. 

 Reservations 

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is to use other ways to make reservations than the Interrail/Eurail website.  You can look at the guide in the link:

https://community.eurail.com/train-connections-reservations-47/how-to-get-reservations-105

If you, after having looked at the guide, have questions about how to make specific reservation, please give your travel details (departure date, time and route) preferably in a new topic, and you will get advice.

Please note that Interrail/Eurail charges an extra fee of 2 EUR per person and train in addition to the fee for the seat reservation.

 Activation of pass

During the activation process, when you choose the start day of the validity of the pass, the first day of the validity period is automatically made a travel day, even if you don't enter a journey, the advice is therefore not to activate the pass before the first travel day as you only can deactivate the pass before 00.00 on the day the validity starts. If your travel plans change in the last moment you will loose travel days if you have activated the pass in advance.

It can be wise to make a test and activate the pass with a start date well in the future and then deactivate the pass immediately, just to see that everything works.

 Activation of travel day

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is also never to activate a travel day, that is connect a journey to your pass, until just before boarding the train, otherwise you might loose a travel day if your travel plans change in a late stage  You can't delete a travel day in the past. A travel day can only be deleted until 23.59 CET the day before the travel day.

It is NOT possible to RES in that train online. Have to do that when IN RO at a counter. Save jobs, save eternal fears, save precious IT space on fones. Plus that is not really 1 train-but a few cars shunted on and on to finally reach Sof.

Du bist also wohl nicht der florian van rail.cc/ jetzt raildude?

Nein, bin ich nicht

War nur etwas unsicher weil die Verbindung Recht wichtig für den geplanten Trip ist, wäre halt blöd keinen Platz zu bekommen da der ja nur 1x pro Tag fährt
