Help booking ticket with pass
Hi, I bought a 4 day Eurail pass and am trying to book my first train ticket. When I go to book on the Eurail mobile app it is not giving me the same options as the SBB site. I am wanting to book from the Zurich airport April 26 at 12:15 to Schaan Bahnhof. On the SBB site it has a 12:15-14:11 option that does not show on the Eurail mobile app. How can I book that ticket?
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
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?

Trenitalia 3 Day Pass - Paris to Verona, Italy NEED SEAT RESERVATIONS
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. They don't have one because they have Trenitalia Pass.What do they do? Dose the Trenitalia Pass number work on this site? Thank you!
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.
Ciao a tutti. Io ho preso un global pass interrail. Vorrei prenotare un treno notturno Svizzera - Amsterdam con carrozza cuccetta.Ho saputo che con interrail c’è una scoutistica, ma come si procede? C’è un codice da inserire al momento della prenotazione per avere lo sconto? Dive si trova questo codice?Grazie

Reservations within Italy - Milan to Venice, Venice to Rome, Rome to Pompei, Naples to Florence
Hello,What is the recommended website (or alternative method?) to make reservations for train journeys within Italy?Would it be cheaper to do seat reservation at Italian train stations instead of pre-reserving online? Do they have Eurail quotas, so do we face the risk of not being able to reserve seats if we go to the station on the day?Travel period: Late June to mid JulyThe sectors we are going on the train within Italy are:Milan to Venice,Venice to Rome,Rome to Pompei,Naples to FlorenceDo the fast train between these cities always require seat reservations?
Beginners Advice for European tour
Hi There Looking at a trip down to Florence (and back) from London taking in a few cities along the way mainly using Hotels and Airbnb. Route across France to Italy and back up though Switzerland and Belgium. Probably buying a month pass for each of us with 6-8 stops. Understand the principles of the card I think but confused by the actual booking of the trains. Every route I've looked at so far has said extra payment has to be made and just wondering what I'm buying the pass for 😕 Was I just unlucky or is that a fairly typical experience. Ideally I'd like to have all the trains booked up before we set off. Is that possible? If anyone has done this sort of thing before and can give advice I'd be very grateful. Thanks Steve
inputting phone number when using the "seat reservation" part of the app
Awful! I spent 5 minutes before removing the seat reservation from the app. It would not take my phone # with or without the country code. Tried every variation. It accepted my name, address, etc but the red “phone number” would not allow me to continue to payment. Scott
