Travelling extensively within countries
Hi everyone. EuroRail rookie here. Just wanting to confirm the facts Ive read already from various blogs. We are travelling on a 1st class global pass for 2 months to about 11 countries (Germany, Austria, Czech, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland) I would like to ask if travelling within the same country (ie Switzerland or Hungary) is included in our global pass? I know it may not be include travel WITHIN a city (ie metro trains, trams, metro buses), but does it cover travel from city to city? Does this also include buses from city to city? Are any of the above 11 countries preclude this? Thanking everyone in advance. Kind regardsYoungCoupleOZNZ

Outbound / Inbound travel
Hi, just trying to clarify how outbound / inbound travel can be used. From UK, would I be allowed to travel from Edinburgh to London and then eurostar to Paris, as my outbound journey if all in one day, or only the Eurostar leg? And if I did either of these and no more travel that day, does it count as one of my (probably 7) travel days? Thanks!
My interrail pass expired like 3 days ago and I did not get the chance to activate it (because I didn’t event knew that I had to do that). I tried to reach costumer support and they did not try to help me. If there’s anyone who had the same problem and has a solution please let me know. Please don’t answer if you did not have the same problem.
Riga to Poland
Hi, I’m currently in Riga and am looking to get to Poland. I don’t really plan to stop in Lithuania. I’ve tried to plan my journey on the app but no stations appear. As far as I’m aware, some stations for the Baltics aren’t available so I would need to add manually. However, when I have googled routes the only options that come up are via buses. I’d obviously like to make the most of my pass if possible so would rather a train. Does anyone know if it is even possible to get to Poland via train from Riga and if so how? Also, would it be included on my pass (I have a continuous global pass)? Thanks in advance ☺️
Inbound/Outbound from the UK
I have a Global Pass and have already used it to travel to Amsterdam and now going to Germany and Italy in a few weeks but on the app its says the outbound/inbound 2/2.I am based in the UK so taking the Eurostar to Paris and then onwards.Thing is I have already got and paid for seat reservations for my Germany and Italy trips including the Eurostar legsI contacted customer services and they said I can still travel within Germany and Italy with my Global Pass but my Eurostar journeys won’t be allowed (even though I have printed tickets for them)Can I still used my Eurostar tickets as buying brand new ones directly with Eurostar is between £150-200 for the dates selected for my Germany and Italy trip.
Ljubljana to Zagreb Glavni Kolodvor
Hello everyone, we’re looking to book a train on the 21st of April from Ljubljana to Zagreb. On the rail planner app there is a direct train available at 8:30am although I don’t know where to book a seat reservation. I’ve looked on the seat reservation section of the community page and then tried to book through the OBB app but the only train showing up on the OBB app for 8:30 isn’t direct. Can anyone give me any guidance on where to book seat reservations as on the app it says it’s required or is a seat reservation even needed?! thank you guys for your help!

Interrail Greek Island pass
Hello, we are three people interested in a trip to the Greek islands with Interrail. Our idea was to leave directly from Athena and then go to Paros and spend the night there. From Pros we would then move to Santorini where we will spend two nights. From Santorini then activate Naxo where spending only one night. From Naxo then move to Mykonos where we will spend two nights and then return to Athens, where we have the plane to return to Italy. What type of pass do you recommend?
we don't see valid travellers
I received my confirmation email with pass number but when I try to reserve a seat I get “we don't see any valid travellers attached to trip” & when I try to enter my pass number & surname from email I get “these details don't match” even though I'm sure I entered the right Pass number and name from the email… any tips or is this one for customer services?

Does the Inbound/outbound rule apply to the Eurail pass too?
A friend of mine is from Namibia, so she needs a Eurail and not an interrail pass - does the inbound / outbound rule apply there as well? Technically, she doesn't have a country of residence in the EU.can she travel several times in and out of the same country (e.g. UK or Belgium)?
