Eurail seat reservations sent by post?
I tried for the first time to make a seat reservation on a Norway train from Fauske to Trondheim through Eurail website and it says the reservation will be sent by post. Is it always the case for all reservations through Eurail? I understand I can make a direct reservation by calling Entur’s customer service, not online on their website, which can be expensive. The other option is to go to a staffed train station in Norway. I am concerned because I will start my trip to Europe next week. Any advise?
Seat Reservation (only) on OBB ‘RJX’ trains, weekend 22/23April
Anyone have knowledge about making seat reservations (only) for travel by OBB ‘RJX’ trains between Wien and Innsbruck over the weekend of 22/23 April. The usual booking platforms, including oebb, offer various tickets to buy but not reservations only - all options train choices give “Ticket not available”.

OBB nightjet schedule problems between Innsbruck and Hamburg
Hi,We are a family of four, planning to travel from northern Italy or western Austria to Stockholm at the end of June (with some stops on the way). I tried to book OBB nightjet from Innsbruck to Hamburg but their website indicated possible schedule changes for that time, and also said that schedule changes may appear with a very short notice. They also brought up a new cancellation rule which is way more strict that the usual nightjet rule (I know this because I have booked another nightjet for mid-June from Hamburg to Zurich). Do you have experience on similar situations, or better information on this situation? Does this mean minor changes like 30 minutes, or can it be hours, or really even cancellations of the whole connections? I would be grateful of all the help because the OBB customer service have not replied to my several calls.
OBB NightJet Reservations - tickets available but reservations are not?
Hello, I am trying to make a reservation for an OBB Nightjet Train from Basel SBB to Amsterdam Centraal with my eurail pass. On OBB’s site, the route is available if I click the option to purchase outright, but it is not available when I select a seat reservation only. I cannot find it on partner websites (eurail, b-europe) either… I am frustrated because I purchased the pass with the intention of using it to book some of these night trains. I can select the intercity train that I understand is connected for only a 3euro reservation, but I would prefer a couchette to sleep on my journey. Any guidance on how to work around? I have thought about purchasing the cheaper reservation and upgrading later, but I doubt that couchettes will be available day of. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Cannot book couchette on EuroNight train Prague - Frankfurt
Hi, I can see on DB website an overnight train (and when I click on further details it says EuroNight) from Prague to Frankfurt (18:26h EN40458), however when I proceed to book a seat, it doesn’t offer me the option to book a couchette, only the 4,50€ option for a seat. Do I have to book the couchette offline on the day or how does it work?Thank you!

Moving Eurostar reservation following timetable change
Hello,I’m planning to travel between London St Pancras and Cologne on 1 May this year, using one of the days of my 1st class Adult Interrail Global Pass (7 days in one month). However, the timetable has changed since I bought the pass and made reservations for that day.I bought the Interrail pass and reservations for the Eurostar (through the SNCB website) on 13 March. My original itinerary was as follows, which I settled on using DB’s Reiseauskunft:09:01 London St Pancras - Bruxelles Midi 12:05 (Eurostar 9116) 12:25 Bruxelles Midi - Koln Hbf 14:15 (ICE 315)However, it appears that, since then, DB have changed the timetable for the Bruxelles - Frankfurt ICEs over the period from 29 April to 1 May. I noticed this in Reiseauskunft and it is referred to on another part of DB’s website: https://bauinfos.deutschebahn.com/linie/ICE79-ICE-INTERNATIONAL-Bruxelles-Midi-Frankfurt-M. ICE 315 now starts at Bruxelles Nord at 12:15, meaning I can’t get to it from the incoming Eurostar.My connection
Is the "Generate Pass Cover Number" thing legit?
https://www.interrail.eu/en/book-reservations#/generatePassCoverNumber I’m new here and i have to book a train trough Stockholm-Copenhagen. On the interrail site it says that for some reasons i cant book the reservation. Went to SJ and theres a lot of seats not taken for that train. But on SJ support it says you need a paper pass with a cover number to be able to book only the seats on SJ. I saw this generate pass cover number thing and i got a code, but im wondering if its legit and i can write it in and use it? Or if they will ask me about it on the train? I’m sorry if its a confusing question but i’ve had problems with interrail all day and is currently kind of stressed hahaha… thank you!
Caledonian Sleeper queation
I'm planning to get on the calidonian Sleeper at 22.22pm on the 16th at April at my local train station in Garelochhead for the start of our interrail tour. I have paid for the room supplement, great.However as this is my First journey of the day and the Calidonian sleeper only need a ticket valid on arrival so the 17th... is the correct? Or do I just need my ticket to be valid in the app for the 16th? I also read somewhere they said to add it manually but I can't work out how. Any assistance would be very much appreciated!

Eurail Not Allowing me to book a TER Train
Travelling from Paris to Rouen, Monday 22nd May. Have Eurail Pass.Specifically trying to book TER 3119 but I have also tried to book other trains earlier and later. Some of them seem to require reservations and some not. (According to Eurail)In each case, when I try to book a one way journey Paris to Rouen on their website via my home computer there is no option to add it to my shopping cart. On the phone app it lets me add the train service to “My Trip”.Question 1 - Does that mean I can board the train?Also, the Eurail website and the phone app both say a seat reservation is required for this particular train. I looked up the train service on SNCF and confirmed this. I also read elsewhere (Seat61 I think) that TER trains are included on the Eurail pass. So that means I can just board the train I presume and do not have to pay any extra (except of course for a seat reservation). BUT - and here is my question #2: How do you buy the seat reservation? You can’t on the app and you can’t v
Incorrect timetable - problem with connections
Dear Interrail community, We would like to book train tickets to Edinburgh from Nice (France) on August 04th. The routes are as follows: Nice - Paris (SNCF)Paris - London (Interrail)London - EdinburgWe have already booked tickets for the Eurostar train (Paris-London)For the Nice-Paris route, Interrail has proposed several departure times. We are interested in the train that leaves Nice at 07:57 to arrive in Paris early enough before taking the Eurostar train.The problem is that this train is not proposed on the SNCF website. We read on your website that the timetables may not be up to date on the Interail website. Therefore, the train leaving Nice at 07:57 would not exist. However, how to know if a train will be proposed by Interrail to arrive in Paris with enough time to take the next train to London? Thank you in advance.

advice wanted about the lack of trains between Istanbul, Sofia/Plovdiv, Thessaloniki, Skopje, Belgrade (Nis)
Hi there, I am travelling for 3 months (unlimited travel days) with The Netherlands as starting point, and wanted to go to the balkans/eastern Europe.However, when looking up trains in this area I can barely find any unfortunately. Ive seen some other topics from a while ago about this too, but I find it hard to figure out what I need to do/conclude from it. Is it better to just not go there at all as you need to take busses a lot (and those are not covered by interrail)? I’ve also read some things about there being trains in serbia and North-macedonia but just not internationally registred so it’s hard to know what the schedules are. Are there alternatives that are worth it? F.e. I saw that Romania is accessible still by a night train from budapest, and that it is possible to go from there to Sofia and then a train to halkali (Istanbul-west). Is this doable? Sorry if this is a bit vague but im new to this and really struggling with planning my trip.Thank you in advance for any help!
Euronight train from Basel (Switzerland) to Praha (Czech Republic)
Hi everybody, I plan to start my interrail from Lyon (France). I have a connection at Mulhouse (France) and then Basel (Switzerland), where I want to take the Euronight train to go to Praha (Czech Republic). The departure from Basel is at 9.15 pm. The thing is I don’t see where I can book a couchette (sleeper place) for this train online. And I do not want to arrive at Basel and to have to spend the whole night in a classic seat. Anyone had the same issue ? Many thanks in advance for your help !
