Activating Greek Island Pass
Good evening,We bought a 6 days Greek Island Pass. The Greek Islands Pass Guide notes that it is impartant to book ferries in the order of use, the date of the first ferry is the activation date of the pass. We already booked a ferry from Italy tot Greece, but didn't need tot give our Pass number. For booking domestic ferries the pass number is needed. How do I know for sure that the system knows that we already booked a ferry and the pass is activated on the Italy - Greece crossing and not on the first domestic ferry (and we have to pay for the Italy - Greece crossing)? Thanks in advance,Martin

Travelling during strikes/refunds
Hi folks- Probably a common thread at the moment, but I am travelling next wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th through France. Im meant to be heading into Paris on the Eurostar at 16:22 getting in at 19:57 on wednesday 5th,and Im then meant to be heading on the high speed train from Paris Gare du Lyon to Zurich on Thursday at 07:15. Is it possible to predict whether these routes will be affected? If not and it ends up being wiser to get alternative transport through France, can I get refund on the reservation costs of these journeys? If so, how do i go about doing that? Thanks in advance. Peter

FR and TGV Reservations
Hello all, we are a party of 3 (2 adults and a 16 yo child) from Indonesia. We plan to buy Eurail Global Pass for our June-July Europe trip. I need your help about reservations for FR and TGV Train within Italy, and from Milan-Paris, also Paris-Frankfurt. How can I do it? Can I have my friend who lives in Germany to do the reservation for us? If yes, please tell me how.Is it better to buy mobile Eurail Global Pass now, or later when I arrive at Rome? But I am afraid if we do it later, the reservation is already full since the time is already near and we have the fixed date for our itinerary. All the accomodations have been booked too.To make a train reservation, I think we need to have Eurail already, don’t we? I do appreciate all the suggestion and help. Thank you so much in advance. Regards, Mer
Global Pass - Daily Ticket Scan Code
I noticed today when creating a daily ticket scan code that the train journeys to be made on that day were not being displayed below the scan code as has happened in the past. Is this a problem when the scan code is being checked at stations or on the train or is it purely the scan code the conductor is interested in?

Train from Switzerland to Italy
I will be traveling from Switzerland to Italy on a EuroCity train soon. I read somewhere that in Italy you need printed tickets for cross border journeys. I have a mobile Eurail pass. Since I have a mobile pass and have printed my seat reservations, will this be ok? Or do I need to print and validate something else?

My friend and his two teenage children are traveling from Paris Gare de Lyon to Verona Porta Nuova, Italy on 22 June 2023. They purchased the Trenitalia 3-Day Pass, and need seat reservations for this journey.This site is the only one I've found that has seat reservations for sale, but it's asking for the their Interrail Pass number.

Help with train travel
I am flying into Zurich Switzerland. From there I am taking a train to Liechtenstein for a day, then to Lauterbrunnen and onto Murren where I will be for 4 days, back to Zurich, then Bruges, Brussels and Amsterdam. I am trying to decide if a 7 day Eurail pass would be best or a Swiss Half price pass and then point to point tickets for the rest of the train rides. Any help is greatly appreciated.
reservations lugano to strasbourg (via Basel)
Hi All, thanks for the super answers you are providing! At the end of May, my wife and I will take the train from Lugano to Strasbourg (via Basel). It’ll be a weekeday and we’re flexible but prefer late morning. In your opinion, do we need a reservation? Our Eurail pass is first class. I’ve heard from some in the community that you don’t need a res in Switzerland. OBB is selling an 11:00am reservation for about 10 Euros per person. Necessary? Thanks!
Florence to bologna and Pisa
This is the route I’m planning tomorrow: Florence- Bologna, Bologna-Florence, Florence-Pisa. This will all be in 1 day. I’m sure it is, but wanted to double check, this is ok to do on the interrail pass? I know I could skip returning back to Florence but it works out quicker and I will be in pisa at an earlier time.
Bologna train station
When looking at a route form Florence SMN to Bologna there are two options for Bologna train station (Bologna city and Bologna centrale). Are these the same or different because when I put in the exact same route, the arrivals time at Bologna city is 25 ish minutes before Bologna centrale. If I want to be in the city centre, is Bologna central the correct station to arrive at?
Réservation couchette train de nuit Paris à Vienne
Bonjour, nous souhaitons voyager en Autriche et en Slovénie en août 2023. Je n'arrive pas à réserver un compartiment couchette dans le train de nuit direct qui part de Paris le vendredi soir pour arriver à Vienne le lendemain matin. J'ai le même problème pour revenir (Vienne à Paris) fin août. Est-ce que ces trains ne sont pas encore ouvert à la réservation ? Ou est ce que nous devons trouver un autre train pour se rendre à Vienne ? Merci d'avance pour votre aide !Laure.
