Hi, We are a family from Sweden with two younger kids and a little dog. We would like to experice the night train through Germany to Swizzerland, and continue from there to our destination Sicily. Are there any night train with sleepers between Hamburg and Munich? so far jag have seen for example ICE1689, but there is no sleepers on that train, is that right? Again, Duisburg till Basel, NJ 403, the price for a coach/ person is 159 Euro, is this possble? even with a interral pass? or am i searching in a wrong way? Exremly grateful for advice and tips.Many thanks!/Mei
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.
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
Plane gerade Reise mit dem Zug einmal quer durch Europa und mir fehlt die Erfahrung und würde vorab die unten erwähnten Fragen geklärt haben.Sitzplatzreservierungverschiedene europäische Länder am Stück durchqueren ~ bereise, muss ich verpflichtend bei Schnell-, Nachtzügen, Regionalbahnen und Regionalexpressbahnen eine Sitzplatzreservierung vornehmen, wenn diese laut Fahrplanvorschlag in der Rail-Planer-App ausgewiesen wird?Hätte kein Problem damit, währende der gesamten jeweiligen Fahrstrecke auf dem Boden zu sitzen.Angenommen ich würde trotzdem in den Zug steigen ohne eine erforderlichen Sitzplatzreservierung vorgenommen zu haben, werde ich dann aus dem Zug an der nächst möglichen Haltestelle geworfen?MetronetzIst bei dem Interrail-Globalpass das Metronetzt (U-Bahn) in Großstädten inklusive nutzbar?Steckanschlüsse Strom ZugWelche Steckanschlüsse (230V, 12V oder USB-A) sind für Verbraucherendgeräte (Smartphone, Powerbank) in Zügen Europas (Regionalbahnen, Regionalexpressbahnen, Schnel
The Eurail Planning app says there are half a dozen trains from Annecy France to Geneva Switzerland on Sunday. However, when I check the French Oui-scnf app, it shows no trains Trainline also shows no trains at all. A local fellow says there are no trains or not dependable, and recommends the bus. But the Eurail app still shows these train trips - they are TER (SCNF) trains with numbers and stops listed out. Can anyone explain what is going on? Is the planning app wrong, or is SCNF wrong? I am not sure if the train office will be open on a Sunday to ask them.
Hello everyone, I'm new to Interrail. I only took one ride from Cologne to Vienna at night with my school class so far. And one time to Amsterdam for travel. The other times I just drove from work to home...Now I want to go on my own, and I'm wondering how long is your perfect train ride?I thought that I would prefer to go 5 maybe 7 hours maximum, when I don't take a night train. My first idea is Denmark, Sweden and maybe Norway. I'm now playing with the rail planner app and try to choose routes…What is your experience? What is a comfortable travel time for you? Thanks and best wishes,Polkadot
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

Hi, my name's George and I'm from Greece. Today i asked the local train company information about eurail/interrail, conserning an imminent eurotrip I'm about to have and they replied to me that they do not collaborate with your services anymore since COVID 19 pandemic started. I would like to ask, if there are any similar restrictions to any other contracting countries,and if so, which countries are these? Thank you very much in advance.

Hey guys, me and my friend vici got two interrail tickets (4 days within a month). We just took the Nighttrain from Narvik to Stockholm yesterday. But the train got four hours late and so we couldn‘t get our trains back to germany.Now we must take a train at 17:18 and will arrive tomorrow in the morning instead of tonight. The problem is, that our tickets won‘t work for the last two stops. Are there any solutions for problems like that?Thank you
Het invoeren van elke reis die je maakt is vreselijk omslachtig en onnodig. Als ik een maand pas heb, is dan een code voor 1 (of 2 of 3 ) mnd niet gewoon veel makkelijker. Net als bij de gewone OV abonnementen. Dan kun je echt VRIJ in en uitstappen wanneer je wilt. Nu moet je verplicht de trein nemen die je invoert. (big brother watching you)Verder is het ook heel omslachtig om nogmaals je eigen land in en uit te reizen, je bent ook dan niet vrij om de trein te nemen die je wilt, omdat deze bv niet aansluit bij de kaartjes die je koopt voor je eigen land (met je eigen kaartje , is de trein die je wilt nemen, soms gewoon niet te boeken.) heel bizar
