I can reserve this train via interrail itself. I do have a 1st class interrail myself, so I can't see if it also works for a 2nd class interrail.

Can you also check whether you can book this train via Interrail itself?
If you book through B-europe, you pay a cost of 4 euros for ALL your trains that you reserve.
With Interrail you pay 2 euros PER train, which you reserve through them.

I'm curious about the answer from @Nanja , in connection with the pass cover number.

Hi @Sven, Thanks for your answer.

  1. I cannot. See my first post. And I checked every day since the beginning and it did not change… If I am able to reserve it via B-Europe, I do not care about the 4€, as long as I get the reservation.
  2. Me too! :D

By the way, can't you go to train station in Germany to book this ticket?

Via DB BAHN? Via an international counter in Germany?

@seewulf , are you aware that DB BAHN cannot reserve tickets for trains of SNCF 🤔 ?

Just a comment: It not that they cannot reserve for any train. They looked specifically for the train I want, and said that for that train, they cannot book it somehow. They do not know the reasons...

@Sven  yes iam aware of that DB can´t sell domestic Reservations in France anymore since SNCF block almost all trains for International bookings :/

DB can only reserve the TGV/ICE´s Germany/France , France/Spain, France/Switzerland
France/Italy with luck

If it didn't work out via the B europe website, you can also call Nmbs Europe.
They do use a toll number! +32 70 79 79 79 (€0.30/min).

They do not charge a handling fee for Interrail.
