Hello fellow travellers,

I´m planing a few trips in the new future and a few trips require a seat reservation. Now to my problem:

I bought a mobile pass and I´m using the Interrail Planner app. If i now want to book reservations i have to enter the country I want to travel within and make a reservation. So far so good. Right under the search bar the app asks me to choose wether I have a mobile or paper pass when I choos the mobile pass option and enter a country like the netherlands i get a few options for the major railway companies like DB or DSB but not for the official Interrail website. If I then enter France I only get the option to do the reservation in person but if I choose the paper Pass option I can use the online booking function with Interrail. Can I ignore this differntiation between paper and mobile pass and just book all reservations via the Interrail website or do I have to book all the seats in person?

 

Thanks in advance!

For France, the app shows booking via Eurail/Interrail for both versions of the pass. For the paper pass, it also shows booking via NMBS/SNCB, which you can also do with a mobile pass if you request a pass cover code via customer service.

Jasper G …  were you successful in getting a pass cover code from customer service, I am having the same issue. I can not make a reservation on travel.b-europe.com without a 8 digit passcover code.

My pass # is only 6 digits.

@Brendon Gan-Le Now it is to late (if you take tomorrow the train), to get a pass cover number. If you need a reservation, go directly to the ticket office of the train station and take a reservation. If you are lucky there are seats left. On wich route are you travelling?

On this route there are some direct trains, that are mostly already full in 2nd class. But you can take one of the often TGVs from Lyon to Paris Gare de Lyon, and from there you can take RER train (not included in you Eurail) to the Airport Paris CDG.

Book your French reservation via SNCF by phone. Press #85 for English, no booking fee, no pass cover number needed, reservation is sent via e-mail. Prices as in Anna's screenshot apply.
