Hello! I'd like make reservations for my friends with mobile Pass (InterRail Global Pass) for trains in Italy. I added them to trip in my account, but I can't find Issuer (CIV) and Pass Cover Number on their tickets. Without them I can't make reservations. Where can I find them? Or how can I make reservations with mobile Pass? Moderator note: similar topic
Hi there,I´m planning a multistop trip from Spain to Germany. I´ve already bought a Pass, and could make all reservations except for one, from Hendaye to Paris with a TGV. For that connection I find: “ No price results were found for this connection. Please try searching again or find an alternative way to book”. The problem is, I cannot find any other alternative way to book the reservation, at least not a reasonable. I called today to SNCF, and they explicitely told me, it is not possible to buy seat reservations online, and also not at the phone. They said I must come to a french train station… which I can´t really believe…I won´t be in france until exactly the day of beginning my journey, and the missing seat reservation is for the first train I would need…. so it would be really risky to wait until minutes before departure to go in person to the service at the station and ask for buying the seat reservation. That is really risky. If that doesn´t work, I lost the following connecti
Can I reserve seats together for travelers who have both eurail and interrail mobile passes? Scenario:I am having issues when entering the pass cover number for the interrail traveler on traveler details (I am using order number which does not work).How do I obtain the pass cover number for the interrail mobile pass? I have seen several posts with this same issue but no good answer !Thanks.
Hi, I have been in contact with the support but to no success. Me and my friends have individual mobilepasses since we will be doing most of the tip together. When I want to add them to the trip and make reservations I need the pass cover number and the issuer. We bought our mobilepasses though this website and the support and other threads have said the same, that you don’t need those just the email. But, the website will not let me make reservations or add the travellers without issuer and pass cover number.We have all contacted the support a few days ago to get our pass cover numbers.How do I do this step by step if I do not need my pass cover number or issuer, like I am supposedly able to?Just FYI, I did click “I purchased my pass on interrail.eu” and followed the septs sent to me by the support.Hope to get some answers soon.
I'm trying to make a seat reservation for the TGV 6035 from Paris Gare de Lyon to Montpellier Saint-Roch at 15:12-18:41 on 22/05. The Eurail website says that prices are unavailable for this train. If I try to book through travel.b-europe.com instead, there are still some available seats. However, in order to book my seat, the website requests a Pass Cover number in the "Ticket Details" section. Since I have a mobile Eurail pass, I do not have a Pass Cover number and am unable to complete the reservation. How can I receive a Pass Cover Number? Is there an alternative way to book a seat on this train?

Hi Interrailers! I have a question about two seat reservations between Lyon-Barcelona and Barcelona-Valencia - I can see that other travellers had similar problems with seat reservations on these routes.I called RENFE (Spanish Train Operator) and they told me that it is not possible to make seat reservations for these trains online (wtf) and that you HAVE to reserve seats at a physical train station. That is problematic because I have a 6 hour train ride beforehand from Zürich to Lyon, and it would be stupid to show up in Lyon if the train is fully booked - and again stupid to show up in Barcelona later that day if that is fully booked(: Do you know a way around to reserve online? Or do you know if I can reserve seats from an Austrian train station? Or if my friend in Spain can make the seat reservation for me and then send me the reservation with email?Stay safe! Allan
Hi everyone !I tried to book seat reservation on the interrail.eu website. So i went on the dedicated internet page and it asked me to log in.

That is why i can’t make seat reservation... can you help me ? Thanks
Hello! I would like to use my global pass in the beginning of August to travel from Brussels -> Paris -> Hendaye -> Lisbon by Sud Express (night train) with two friends. I did the same route two years ago and back then I booked my extra reservations in June. Now I am having trouble with booking that night train as there is no information available about schedules and prices...Anybody who has the same issues? Thanks in advance!
I am trying to book a seat reservation on the Eurostar for 22nd December. I have already purchased an Interrail Global pass so I only need the seat reservation but the Interrail website says the carrier has not yet released the train times so I am unable to book the seat reservation. Meanwhile the full tickets including seat reservation are increasing in price. I am concerned that I do not know when and how many seat reservations may be released for purchase, and that if I need to book a full ticket despite having the Interrail pass, (e.g. because the seat reservations book up as soon as they are released so I miss the opportunity or the seats book up so no seat reservations are released for that day to interrail), then I am running out of time to do so. The prices are already expensive. Can anyone help with this, e.g. provide information on when seat reservation will be released and if they may all book up and not be released at all?
I was making some seat reservations for my trains but I cannot proceed to the payment. I selected all of my trains and times and then I filled in my personal information and checked the whole order. But then I cannot go further to the payment section, even though I selected the button that I accept the booking terms and conditions. So something is going wrong. Hopefully someone can help me with that because I really want to book them this weekend. I already tried to use a different browser, I used safari and chrome and the same problem occurred.Edit: I want to book:Bruxelles midi - Paris (Thalys) Paris - Barcelona (TGV) Barcelona - Nimes (Renfe) Nimes - Marseille (Intersites) Nice - Paris (TGV) Paris - Schiphol (Thalys)
Hey everyone, I know there’s been a lot of discussion going on about the seat reservation between France and Spain but I still struggle to make my reservation. As I am currently in Germany and planning to travel to Lyon and one day later (2.12.) from Lyon to Valencia, I cannot book this trip as indicated at a local spanish station. I tried via app - says ticket would arrive too late and cannot be booked therefore, also tried to send it to my hostel in Lyon and it would still not work. Then I tried at a local european station counter - they say they cannot book it either. I tried to call SNFC but the call is not going through. Has anybody another idea?Did anyone ever let a spanish friend buy a reservation locally and thenreceived it by email?How good are the chances to book the ticket the moment I arrive in the evening of 1st of december for the next day?I really hope someone can help. Thanks!Mirjam
Hi there!! I’m Sanne and in 2019 I won a DiscoverEU Interrail pass. This year I am going to Sweden using the pass and my friend wanted to join me so he bought the same pass as I have. To get to Sweden we need to book some seat reservations. I added him to my trip after reading some community q&a’s. But now I still can’t book. I can book all the reservations for myself, but not for him or us both. It says they’re not available when I try to book them yet I can book them for myself alone. If anyone knows what to do, please let me know
Hello guys, I recently booked the Global Pass to travel from Berlin to Barcelona but I have problems with reservations. On to the website it didn´t appear any train connection, which is not true because the Rail Planner shows many connections. After many attempts on the webseite it suddenly appears: SEAT RESERVATIONS UNAVAILABLE“You need to buy a seat reservation to board this train, but it seems this seat reservations isn't available on our website. Check 'More information' for other ways to book this seat reservation, or buy a separate ticket to board this train.PRICES TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE. There is no result from the bookingsystem. Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservation.” “More information” doesn´t help either. Does it mean that the train is overbooked? Can someone help me? Thanks in advance :)
Hi,I’m planning to travel through Italy with Interrail pass during summer and I’m wondering if these “Regionale Veloce” trains require a compulsory reservation. According to the Interrail timetable (see the picture), it does require a reservation, but according to other sources, Regionale and Regionale Veloce trains doesn’t require a reservation. Another interesting fact is that it doesn’t provide the price of the reservation, so I’m really confused.Thank you for your answer.
Yeah, what I said in the title really…These are among the most popular night train routes on the continent, and not only is July peak season on a normal year, but 2022 will also be the first proper chance many people have had to travel abroad since the pandemic began. Accordingly there will be a lot of travellers planning to use these trains in July, and this track work couldn’t really have come at a worse time. :-(I’m aware that quite a few of the more expert users of this forum will already have known about this, but hopefully anyone who didn’t - and was counting on these trains for their itinerary - will see this reminder and adjust their plans accordingly.One possible alternative option for those who had been planning to come from Munich is the Trenitalia sleeper from Bozen, but this is on weekends only and only works for those travelling to Rome.
Hello,I have read through a few questions here and couldn’t find a clear answer.I came across this on the interrail.eu site:The Self-Service lets you book e-ticket reservations up to 3 hours before its departure. You'll receive an e-ticket which we recommend you print at home.They recommend to print the e-ticket reservations. Now I am wondering if its okay to not print it and if I can use the e-ticket? Has anyone ever struggled with an e-ticket?

Hello,My friend and I are planning a trip to Venice and Milan very soon (from the 11th of June to the 15th of June). As it is in Italy, we have to book our seats. When we try to do so on the interrail website, it says “Prices temporarily unavailable. Check back in a few hours to see prices and book this seat reservation.”. So we also tried via the italian website but there is no way of enterring that we have an interrail global pass. Then we tried on the austrian website ÖBB but for every train we checked, it says “ticket not available”. I really don’t know what to do as nothing seems to work and the trip is supposed to happen very soon. Any help would be very appreciated :)Here is our plan :Geneva - Venice (11.06) 7:39 - 14:42Venice - Milan (13.06) 11:00 - 13:15Milan - Zürich (15.06) 11:10 - 14:27 Thank you very much!
