From Brussels to Chamonix by train
Hello all! This summer I want to go to Chamonix with the train from Brussels. Does someone have experience if it would be best for me to buy an interrail global 4 day pass + then have train reservation costs. Or just buy the train ticket without interrail, since I am not planning to visit any other destination and would only travel 2 days of the 4. At first glance I see that a train ticket one way costs abot 150 euros, but that is just an estimation I saw since the dates are not published already for the end of June. Thank you! Edit: I will be traveling on 25th of June and back on the 2nd of July

Terrible experience with ICN Excelsior Class
In another thread I shared how I ended up paying 362 euros for an Excelsior Class ticket from Sicily to Rome. Having done so, my wife and I were expecting relatively high comfort. We had travelled in a “deluxe” compartment on the way down but this was supposed to be one notch better, and we’d even be served prosecco when boarding!Instead this turned out to be the worst night train experience I have ever had. The compartment was terribly hot, there was no a/c (none that was functioning anyhow) and there was no way to regulate the temperature inside the compartment. We had the same experience on the way down and the attendant that time managed to turn the temp down a little bit (presumably for the whole car). The attendant this time fidgeted a little bit with the volume knob (!) inside the cabin and then retorted to say that there was nothing he could do. The whole night hot air was flowing out of the heater and it felt like sleeping inside a sauna. But that wasn’t all. The heat was acco

Hi! Just started organising our trip and were looking into night trains from Florence-Vienna. However, there appears to be no availability at all throughout July and August. Are these all booked out or do the trains simply not run at this time?Thanks for any help!
Inbound and outbound journey by nighttrain
Hello,The interrail rules are saying that I only have to use one in- or outbound journey when I travel by night train. The date of departure is the evening when the night train departs. Does the in- or outbound journey still counts when I take, after the night train, other trains during the day of arrival by night train? For example: I leave on Saturday evening and arrive on Sunday morning by night train. On Sunday I travel further with other trains. Does those other trains still count as the inbound journey? Thank you for answering!Kristoff

Eurail/Interrail advice in Italy
8 days in Italy visiting Venice & major cities btwn there & Naples-Looks like 8 day pass would be perfect. 1. Does one simply show pass upon request aboard train or scan somewhere prior to each boarding? 2. Is reservation fee for each leg of trip or round trip? Example: Bologna to Pisa back to Bologna3. Any suggestions for questions I wouldn't know to ask about using Eurail pass? 4. Best/easiest/cheapest site to book trips?

Travelling alone. Is it safe?
Hey! Is it considered to be safe to travel alone on interrail? Is there something that i need to know about in this case? Like i am wondering if something happens and I miss a train so that I am stuck at a train station at the middle of the night, would that be dangerous?
Travelling with ADHD and Autism
Hi Everyone, My name is Maddy and I am 24 years old. I have been looking to travel for a few years now but with a diagnosis of ADHD and Autism I worry about sensory and information overload. I have travelled with friends before and have been fine but that has been a more static holiday, so no travelling abroad other than on foot or to and from the airport. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or tips on how to make the experience as smooth as possible? Has anyone got any dos or don’ts for planning? Thank you in advance for your assistance! ☺️
