Quick question,ill travel to London for 4 Days and found a nice connection. But on my way back it seems like every train from London to Brussel or Paris is fully booked with Interrail. Is there any chance that ill get my reservation on the 24.07 or is it normal that every Eurostar Train is booked. (I checked for Trains starting 22.07 - 10.08 and every single one is not available) thanks to your help
Hi, I’m trying to book a reservation for two journeys that we absolutely want to be on a specific train and be able to sit with our traveling companions. I’ve gone to the Seat Reservations tab on eurail.com, and searched/selected the train(s) I want. The site (correctly) states that reservations are not required, but can be purchased anyway. The Total Amount is shown as USD $0 and the Add to Cart button is greyed out (presumably because there is no balance shown).When I select a different journey (as a test) that requires reservations, even if not for all legs, it has a “Show Prices/Hide Prices” twistie that allows me to select a reservation (see example below), but the desired journey above does not show this. Am I doing something incorrectly? It looks like I can make a reservation on the Deutsche Bahn site. Should I just do that instead?
I had my paper ticket for a Paris-Barcelona reservation mailed to my friend’s place in Poland with my friend being the recipient as I won’t arrive there until July 21. The date of departure on the ticket is July 26. Yesterday, I checked the tracking and somebody at Eurail put my surname after my friend’s first name as the receiver, not his proper name as I entered it in the form. I absolutely 100% completed the form correctly. This is a silly mistake on Eurail’s behalf, but I’m concerned that because it is being sent registered mail, the postal company will not complete the delivery. I emailed customer service and have not yet gotten a response. What year is it? Why on earth is this mailed paper ticket a thing? Small mistakes like this can cause huge headaches.
I can’t make reservations through eurail/interail. You can’t progress past “continue to traveller details”. The community suggests making them through individual websites but OBB etc say they aren’t available. How do I make reservations on the following trains/route (photo attached)
Hi! I was able to catch a train two hours prior to my reservation. This happend since that train had some delay, so I could make the transfer.It's a train with recommended reservation. But since I'm already traveling, I can't find the train in the system. What the best way to be assured of a seat?Already tried booking from a station later on the traject... Thanks!
I have made seat reservations for 3 journeys.Payment for all has been taken from my account but I have only received the email reservations for 2 of the journeys. The reservation missing is for a journey to Perugia. How do I contact customer services to ask about this -is that what I should do now?is there a telephone number for customer services?I have a mobile interrail pass
Hi, we are planning to travel from Brussels to Paris (13.08.2022 / 7.13 pm) with Thalys and called the customer service for seat reservations. But, I just realised that they gave us 1st class seat and now I can not call them again. Anyone has the same experience? How did it go? I saw a post that someone can still board the train but need to pay the differences. However, I wonder how much the differences will be? Any prompt response or suggestion will be very much appreciated since the travel date is coming soon and we will be travelling with a baby. Thanks all and have a good day!
Buenas tardes. El día 12 a las 14.45 llegamos a Barcelona y desde allí queremos llegar a Praga, pero necesitamos reservar desde Barcelona a Perpignan y en Renfe me dijeron que ya está completo. Por lo tanto no podemos hacer el resto de reservas que requería el viaje.Con la aplicación hemos probado la opción "reserva de asientos no requeridos" y nos sale un itinerario alternativo. Adjunto captura. ¿Es seguro que no necesitamos hacer reserva y que podemos subirnos sin problema a todos los trenes? Otra duda importante: ¿el viaje de ida y vuelta como se computa si vuelvo desde un punto distinto? Y si termino en Barcelona, en lugar de Sevilla que es donde empiezo. Gracias
Hello, is it possible to use the first class seat reservations sold to me by SNCF over the phone but I have a 2nd class global pass? Their weren’t anymore seat reservations other than 1sr class and desperately needed this train for this day. We are using these seat reservations for the train from Paris to Barcelona and is a TGV train. Thank you.
Hi, I want to travel from Saarbrücken to Mannheim and the interrail app suggests TGV9551 at 10:58 but does not say it requires reservations. Is this true?? I thought all TGV travel needed reservations? Is it because it's completely within Germany that it doesn't? Thanks,Q
I booked an Interrail Poland Pass for my trip from Wiesbaden to Sedzilaw with my wife and the recommended train connection to do so is to take the ICE1557 at 8:26 am on the 15th August 22 and to drive to Dresden-Neustadt.The Pass however won't allow me to book the ICE to Dresden-Neustadt. The reason for this is according to the app that my bought Interrail Poland Pass is not valid in some countries.I used once the same Interrail Poland Pass and it worked out for me because of the "Incoming and Outcoming" guarantee. What can I do?
Hello. I booked the train tickets with my friends at once. But I'm the only one who should change the travel schedule. Therefore, I would like to cancel my seat reservation. In this case, however, I have to cancel mine and my friends' tickets at once. Is there any way I can cancel only just my ticket, not my friends’ tickets.
Since the eurail pass covers RER SNCF only and not metro in Paris, looking online it says the Charles de Gaulle Étoile station is a part of RER line A but it says pass not covered? i’m obviously going wrong somewhere lol
Hello! I have an eurail pass for my family of 6 and now in the process of making the seat reservations required. I am having trouble booking the train from Torino to Roma Tiburtina (FR 9583) on August 15 2022. There is a “Prices temporarily unavailable” message and I can not make my reservation. What does it mean? Is it sold out? Is it too early? What can I do in this particular case?.The same happens in alternative routes for this day, and in most of our 5 days of plan trips during 1 month. Thanks in advance for your tips!!
I’ve read through a lot of the seat reservation posts and can’t find an answer, so here goesIs there a facility within the seat booking process to be able to specify a choice of seats during the booking process? Window seat, forward facing - those sort of optionsIt would be great if actual seats could be booked, but I expect that is a step too far I’ve just received my pass and tried booking seats on Eurostar and TGV Lyria. The seats are available as it takes me right through to payment. But there is no screen to provide an option to choose a type of seat
Hello eveyone ! I struggle to know whether or not i can exchange (cancel if needed) my return ticket / outbound (Strasbourg - paris). On your website is written : "all seat reservations are subject to the refund policy of the individual railway company – you can review this before confirming your cancellation. Booking fees are non-refundable."I don't get if I can get reimbursed (i paid 20€) if i change my return ticket (location and date), and if yes, how ?SNCF told me : because you booked on another platform (interrail) we cannot see anything about your reservation, please reach Interrail team. Could you please enlighten me ?Thanks a lot !Sophie .
Rail Planner app says my trip on Sunday 14 August from Vienna to Amsterdam Central is not required to book reservations. But when I want to book seats it says a part of the train trip can not be booked. Does this mean that seats are all booked or it can not be reserved?
I have an Italy flexpass 8 days/1month in 1st class for 2 people. as we are travelling from Rome to Salerno, then Salerno to Tropea and back to Salerno, then from Salerno to Bari. Then Bari to Florence and finally Florence to Rome. I had to add all the journeys manually to my trip and then to our Passes. I know some of the trains we will be boarding dont have 1st class, but some portions of the journeys do have 1st class.And I would like to be able to choose seats if I can. How do I accomplish that feat? I booked the rail pass with Rail Europe and the have to use Eurail planner app to book the trains. It is not a simple thing to do, and I have no idea how to get to the Trenitalia site to choose or book seats as our Rail Pass PNR’s arent accepted by Trenitalia. Is there any way around this? I have been booking trains prior to Covid and i never had issues like those that appear with this rail planner app.
Hi guys! I’m very stressed out cause Idk how to make a seat reservation online for my trains in Spain and Portugal. It always says that seat reservations are required but not available on the Interrail website, so I have to book them in Spain and in Portugal.can’t I book them before online by calling or texting a station number? It seems risky to do it the same day.. what if there is no place left? I need to organise my trip in advance😭 thanks!
