Hi, we are having some issues with seat reservations for our journey from GENOVA P.ZA PRINCIPE (ITALY) to VENTIMIGLIA (ITALY) on 12/06 - we are wanting to reserve seats as this is one of our bigger journeys (to Marseille St Charles). The page says ‘Prices temporarily unavailable, Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservation.’ on the journey we want to book. Can anyone help with this?

Genova - Ventimiglia: wait a few days until this train appears in the ÖBB system, where you can book it for 3€ per seat (using these steps) instead of 5€ per seat via Interrail. There's no rush since these seats are not quota-controlled.

Nice - Marseille: there are seats available for 20€ each via Belgian railways. The Interrail website still has a problem with these 20€ seats and can't show them. You'll need a pass cover number; if you have a mobile pass, request a pass cover number here. There's also a reservation-free train Nice 16:20 - Marseille 19:03.

I'd wait a bit. The 8:58 train should run (and reservations should be 10€ via ÖBB, same procedure as above). I see it on Trenitalia's website one week earlier but not yet on 12 June; I think it's not open for booking yet. 12 June is also the first day of Trenitalia's summer timetable. They've just published it on their own website and it doesn't look complete yet. It also hasn't arrived yet at many other websites so just wait for a bit. There's no rush.

Hi, via ÖBB you need to add Interrail as discount and more important select ONE WAY TICKETS and not seat reservations.

If this still does not work you could try on raileurope.com add Interrail/Eurail as discount.

Thank you @Angelo this worked! I was selecting seat reservation and that is why it didn’t work before.

I appreciate your fast response :) Have a great day!

Could you please specify which trains you'd like to book exactly (origin, destination, departure time per train)?

This is the first part of the journey

thank you for this info! there is an earlier train here as well which is more suitable for us but only has this message - do you know if this will change closer to the time?

 

 

Hi everyone,

 

I just tried to book the seat reservations for this train connection from Genova to Ventimigglia for July 2024 and the oebb.at site tells me first that it costs 3 euro and when I try to book the seat reservation it shows me 0 euros and tells me that I already have a ticket.

My question is, did this train connection change and interrail pass holders do not need a seat reservation anymore?

Thank you for any help with this. Have a nice day!
