Hi if you are useing a Railpass there will be the point that a train needs a Reservation 🙂 Many of you ask where to get a reservation for a specific train.First of all there are 2kinds :)Supplements like the Intercity Direct in Netherlands or the German/Austrian - Italian Supplement on Eurocity & Railjets that have to be paid and doesnt include a seat :/.And Seatreservations like the TGV,Eurostar or Thalys that include in the supplement fee even a seat reservation.There are several ways reserve a seat :)A. on the Website of the Traincompany that operate the train.B. at the trainstation (On major stations you have “International ticket desks” they often can reserve even trains in a different country for example you can reserve your TGV from Munich to Paris already in Prague 🙂 )C. Via the Ra
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
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

Hallo, Ich bin noch vor der Reise, und hatte gerne gewusst, wie sollte man vorgehen wenn der Anschluss auf reservierte Zug nicht geklappt hat. Kann ich direkt nächste Zug nehmen? Online Sitzplatz ist nicht mehr buchbar (3std Regel) Und noch eine Frage, wenn das nächste Zug ohne Reservierung ist, kann ich ihn spontan nehmen? (Auch paar Minuten früher entschieden) Reicht es wenn ich ihn in Planung mit Ticket verbinde? Danke für die Antworten. Weronika

On Sunday 10.07.2022 there is a strike of local trains in Italy (Regionale, Regionale Veloce and Regio Express)Trenord in Lombardy region (Milan) (trains to Arona Air Show will run regularly) Trenitalia TPER in Emilia Romagna (Bologna) and this trains will run with an replacement bus instead. Trenitalia Tuscany (Firenze)Long distance trains like Frecciarossa or IC will run regularly.Check Trenitalia App if trains will run or the website viaggiatreno.it on Sunday before traveling. Last time a few weeks ago in this 3 regions, almost all trains got cancelled due to strikes.
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.I’m trying to reserve a seat on Trenitalia but I don’t know where to enter a code or something to apply the discount for having the global Pass. In another post I read that Trenitalia don´t make reservations anymore, but where to do it so, I don’t want to book it in the eurail website for the extra fee.Thanks for your time.
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,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.
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.
Hi! I am traveling using a global Eurail pass this summer for France, Italy, and Spain. I have a mobile pass and have paid for seat reservations on trains from Bordeaux to Paris and Florence to Rome. In the emails for our bookings they say we need to print out copies of our tickets, even though we have the mobile pass. Why is this the case and what will actually be needed when we board the train? The email says this: “Remember, you’ll need physical copies of your reservations to show the conductor on board the train, along with your eurail Pass. Showing this email won’t be enough, so make sure you keep your print-outs somewhere safe.” I just don’t understand why we’d need paper copies if we already have a mobile pass??? We’re also trying to find trains from Paris to Barcelona but now realize you must have a paper pass that is mailed. How realistic is it that we could book a train a few days in advance from Paris to Barcelona at a station in Spain in person when we get there?
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.

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?
Hello, I need some help. Me and my partner bought the interrail pass 2nd class. We are currently in Vienna and we want to travel to Paris. When we go online to check the trains we have option to reserve 2nd and 1st class seat reservation . The ammount payble for each class looks the same. The question is if is possible to reserve the 1st class seats and using our passes? If not why are we allowed the option to select 1st class seat reservation. thank you!
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?
Hello, does anyone know if it is posible to order a seat reservation from interrail, and get the reservation ticket as a pdf, instead of sent to me by mail? I unfortunately do not have time to get the reservation by mail, So I would need it to print instead..
