Hey! So, unfortunately, 24th July is our last day and last travel day of our Interrail trip, our Passes are valid till this date. We’ve just recognised that we’ve bought earlier (like a month ago) our seat reservations on our very last train the Zürich - Budapest night train (14 € / person). This train departs on the 24th, but arrives next day, on 25th, consequently this, arrival date is not in the Pass validity. Yeah, we know, we should have thought about this way more before… But now the full fare tickets for this route are very, very expensive (100 € / person), which we frankly cannot afford. What should we do?? Are we in a trouble?? Such a bad situation…..

Your pass won’t be valid for this trip. You can only use your pass until Bludenz as that stop is before midnight.

why not taking a day time train Zürich Vienna and then continue from Vienna to Budapest? If you leave at around 12.40 from Zürich you can make it. 

Or 13.30 EC Zürich - München and then München-Budapest Railjet
