I understand one can only reserve the Bosphorus Express at Istanbul’s two train stations. Even if we can only arrive to the station on the day, is it almost certain that there will be places for us. And are all tickets sold on this train for beds (we want to make sure any night trains we go on have beds to sleep in instead of just sitting) How many people are usually in each cabin?
Hello everyone!Is there a way to find out the structure of the train seats, or at the least the structure of the train carriage seats? Or is there a site for this? In some cases (DB, ČD) there’s no problem to choose from the train map and just click on the available seats and you know exactly which seats you’ll be sitting on. But in some other cases (DSB, SJ) I can just see the carriage number and the seat numbers that are there. But I can’t see if it’s in a coupe or if we’re sitting in a row of 3 seats or if we are sitting by the table... Is there some way to find this out? Thank you for your answers!
My husband and I are visiting Spain in a few weeks and want to travel by train between a few cities within the country. Will we need Covid tests to enter a new city each time we board a train? I know we need a test to enter the country, but once we are in Spain we will be staying in the country just moving between cities.
Good day all. We are a family of 5 traveling just one day from Carcassone to Barcelona. Can anyone pls tell me the best way to purchase this?This is our first trip to Europe and we only need the one way train ticket. Do we still need a rail pass for this or can we just buy the one way train tickets? Thanks!
Hello all,My names Ben, I’ve lived in America all my life but this coming fall I’m studying abroad in Norwich, England. I really want to see as much of Europe as I can while I’m in England for 3 months and don’t really know the best way to do it. I think the Eurail pass would be a good option for me with the flexibility it will provide but have also read online it sometime can not be worth the price. I would love any advice if anyone has some! Thanks!
Lost IPOds on 4-7-2022 from Viareggio, Italy to Lucca. Last train of the night to Lucca, Italy. Train # RE18641 which is currently in the Lucca station. We lost a pair of IPODs and tracked it back to the train. The station is closed and we are unable to get into he train. Is there anyway to find out when that train departs so we can get on it and find them?
He hecho interail en segunda clase y se podían hacer reservas en primera sin problema, este año he cogido en primera clase y observo que para reservar en primera se paga igualmente una diferencia ¿ Entonces que ventajas tengo? Porque si he pagado más por el billete de primera pero tengo que pagar más en la reserva por ir en primera y el de segunda pagaría misma diferencia, no entiendo por q pagar esa diferencia de precio. Y los trenes q no necesitan reserva en la app no sale que haya primera clase. Si me lo pueden explicar, gracias
The employee I had on the phone yesterday claims that you can't upload the tickets you buy at the counter in the nmbs app??? Why are the conditions of the ticket not on the printed PDF document, but only in the PFD document that you receive by email?Something that NMBS is not aware of, or what do you think? There is 1 barcode on the document, for 2 travelers. According to the counter clerk, it is perfectly possible to scan this barcode twice. According to her, this certainly works in Belgium, so it should also work abroad.Can anyone confirm this? The employee could only choose between:Seat, berth place, and bed place.This was very unclear for the employee, for myself, because the options are worded very differently on the Trenitalia site.Only because of the amount I am currently somewhat certain that they are the right places.The program of NMBS did not provide any options for a berth place, so prices cannot be compared.However, there are still berth places available on the Trenital

Hi lads I was hoping that anyone who has traveled in the last month or is currently travelling could answer this question. My sister and I are going interrailing in august and both of us are fully vaccinated. So I was wondering do we need booster vaccines or are countries even still very strict on vaccines atm. I have covid atm so if they require boosters would a proof of recovery be okay too ? Any help would be appreciated
We are a couple that are planning to do a trip around Europe with our puppy, even if he is a young puppy, he will not be able to travel as a "luggage" due to size. Are there any countries we should avoid? Which countries are best for traveling with a pet? We dont mind paying, we just want it to be as hassle free as possible.
I’ve tried calling OBB twice in the last hour and they don’t seem to be hearing me on the line? I want to book the night train from Budapest to Timisoara but I can’t do it on the website either. I want to get the night train on July 18th. Does someone know what else I can do? I’ll be going to Budapest from Vienna.

HelloI am going around in circles regarding which private operators in Sweden accept the pass. The list on the IR site says one thing, ACP (another retailer) shows a different one and when I asked about trains run by Kalmar länstrafik the train operator said they did despite it not being listed! Screenshots of lists / Facebook chat conversations. One operator Mälartåg who operate around Västerås aren’t listed. Their social media says contact SJ as “they manage IR in Sweden” and SJ can’t help.Years ago when I sold European Rail tickets, we had access to the InterRail annexe which had far more comprehensive information than was ever published on the pass guides / T&Cs. Is there access to this at all to verify the full list? Thank youPhil Richards.
Hi everyone! I'm gonna apply for an Hungarian Schengen visa. I got an one month global pass. I'm told to present everything during the application. Flights (in and out) and accommodations are okay, they r fixed. However, I don't know how to present train reservations because I'm going to use the free trains mostly that doesn't require seat reservations. What do you do that? Is there anyone who had to apply for a visa like this?
