Hello, we both want to travel at the end of May from Heidelberg/Germany carrying our E-bikes in the train to Copenhagen, visit the capital of Denmark. Then take the ferry to Oslo, visit the capital of Norway two days, then take the Bergensbanen to Bergen. After a couple of days there, looking around by bikes too, we’re going by ship (Hurtigruten) to Trondheim. After sightseeing at this interesting town, we ride a bike tour to Steinkjer.In Steinkjer we want to take the train to the town of Mosjoen northbound. Then once more the bike to northern Helgelands-Coast until the harbour of Oernes, where the Hurtigruten ship will pick us and bring to Stamsund/ Lofots. There we stay about a week, discovering these wonderful archipelago by bike. Then back to Bodoe by ferry and from Bodoe by the Night train southbound to Trondheim. Next day Trondheim-Oslo by train and after one day visit again in the capital back over Copenhagen ( Ferry) to Heidelberg.Our questions: how is the transportation of (
Hallo,ich bin neu hier. Möchte zum ersten mal mit dem Interrail reisen. Dazu will ich für die Schweiz einen 3 Tage Pass für Senioren in Papierform kaufen. Muss ich mit dem Papier trotzdem zum Fahrkartenschalter um eine Fahrkarte und / oder eine Platzkarte zu bekommen? Mein Reisewunsch ist u.a. von Wetzikon über Luzern nach Montreux und zurück. Dabei möchte ich gern im Panoramawagen sitzen. Kann mir vielleicht jemand bei der Planung helfen?Schöne GrüßeAndrea
I find it not a real option to travel in Spain by interrail. The only way to book a reservation ( which you need in all trains) is on a station in Spain. Online is impossible. As a result the train is often fully booked. Three times we had to book buses. That was quite a disappointment
Salve, vi contatto per avere alcune informazioni riguardo interrail. Abbiamo acquistato un pass e vorremmo pianificare il nostro viaggio per agosto. Dato il periodo di alta stagione avremmo la necessità di programmare il percorso per prenotare gli ostelli. Quando saranno disponibili le tratte ferroviarie di quel periodo? E vorremmo sapere se le tratte ferroviarie sono fisse, per regolarci eventualmente con le tratte di maggio.

Is a passenger locator form required when interrailing Europe by train? Is a EUDCC required when travelling aswell? How would I get this (I’m from the Uk) Is Covid testing required at borders? My route is Berlin. Brussels. Paris. Zurich. Vienna. Ljubljana. Venice. Rome.
Hi allSorry if this quesetion is silly but its my (19M) first big solo trip and its also my first time interrailing. I have a question about border control + COVIDWhen starting my journey ill actually be flying to my first destination (Sevilla) from England. My last destination will be 7 weeks later in Amsterdam and then I will fly home again. Will I have any problems at border control in the airport when they see I landed in Spain and was just chilling in Europe for 2 months and then ended up in Amsterdam to fly back? I assume my passport wont get stamped between countries when using a train so Im concerned I’ll experience problems trying to get home. Also nothing to worry about with Brexit , right? How early before departing a country / city shall i check covid requirements? Is it necessary to check when travelling in country (e.g: Madrid to Barcelona?)
What sort of travel insurance would anyone recommend for 1 month travel round Europe. I’ll be going to 7/8 different countries. Is there any that’s best for interrailing (going to multiple different countries), I’d like it to cover Covid + anything to do with unexpected cancellations. I’m aware that it wouldn’t cover any cancellation of the interrail ticket on my part.

Hello All,I am living in UK on residence permit and have Indian passport, I have few questions regarding interrail and hope to get clarification around it.Can I get interrail pass at all? Or I have to get Eurail pass instead? My UK resident permit is valid from Nov 2021 till Nov 2022, can I purchase interrail pass for travel in month of May? Is there any criteria regarding validity of residence permit? Can I used this pass to travel in UK, for example, I am living in Newcastle, Can I use this pass to travel from Newcastle to London and then London to Paris on same day? Can I use this pass to get Schengen Visa?Thanks in advance for your help.
We have used Eurail passes many times over the years but this May will be the first time back to Europe since Covid began. We normally pick a city and use it as a travel base for a while. This time we are using Bologna for a month and will be using the pass to visit towns and cities within a few minutes to a couple of hrs away. The question is - Has anyone had any problem boarding trains? I know that proof of vaccination is required for most public travel but does that mean we will need to show our CDC (USA) card when travelling or do we need to reserve all train trips in advance?
Hi everyone, I'll be travelling from Ireland to Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy next month and wondering is it necessary to have PLF (passenger locator form) upon entering each country? I know they're necessary when flying to some countries but wasn't sure if they were needed when travelling by rail. I'm from the EU and I have a digital covid cert including my latest booster shot so I'm covered in that regard. Wondering if anyone can offer any clarity!
Going from England to Belgium, will show Passenger locator form and vac certificate, going to 6 more countries, will I have to provide Passenger locator form for each country or am I free to travel after leaving Belgium . Will have a First class pass, on Eurostar they do not have First class, only Standard, Standard Premier, and Business Premier, which class will I have for seat reservation ? Can I pay for pass in UK pounds or does it have to be in Euros ? Is there a QR code on a paper pass to use on stations which have automatic ticket barriers , especially in the UK . Thank you .
Hello! I bought 2 tickets by the end of 2021 and I was expecting to activate them this summer, however, with all this tension war in Europe, I would like to ask if it’s possible to activate the passes later after their validity. I really want to travel, but with all this situation I was wondering if it’s possible to use passes in a peaceful and safety time.Thanks in advance!
