Mobile App - Group Travelling
We travel with two persons and booked the passes in one account and already made reservations for the nighttrain in thi account.The support says, it is possible that each traveler uploads his pass on his own mobile in the Mobile Pass App.Question….Can we also upload the already booked group seat reservations on two mobiles für each traveler?If not, what should we do the best?
Thalys Line reserve seats
I have tried numerous times and do not see seats available for the Thalys High Speed Trains. I am new to this reservation process. It appears all seats would be taken on any High Speed train option from Brussels to Paris. Is that correct? I’m Starting this late to get seat reservations for Late May or early June. Is that correct I’m too late for such a seat reservation? I just want to know so I can plan an alternate route that will take longer and we need to plan adequate time
Wrong Date for a Journey on APP differs from Reservation booked
Hello everyone,My App Rail Planner shows the wrong day for a trip, and does not allow me to travel that day on other trains. Has that ever happened to someone?More specifically:I choose my return from Zurich to Rome (out/inboud day) for the 6th May, and booked my seat reservation on the two trains.Now the reservation mail confirms correctly the 6th May, and so does the website, but ON THE APP it shows the day selected for Zurich-Rome as 4th May, so it does not allow me to choose another train for that day.And it happens i have to travel also the 4th May (from Amsterdam to Zurich).Doew anyone know how to correct this?Thanks.

Mobile Pass Activation
HelloI bought a four day pass and I would like some help because I have some doubt if I activated correctly my pass or not.I have made seat reservations without difficulty and I received them by email as PDFs file from Intrerrail. But I cannot see these tickets on my mobile phone thanks to “My trip” window. I have no “show tickets” button like explained in an email I received. Do you think it is a problem? Or must I add these tickets through the Rail Planner application?Here is attached what is displayed on my phone when I go to “My Pass” (I have hidden the pass number and my name).I cannot display something like a QRcode showing the Pass itself. (wen I go to “details” window there is nothing else which is displayed excepted my ID number and my birth date)I think that my pass is not activated. What do you think about this?Thanks for your help!Bertrand
Wie viele Reisetage mit IC über Nacht?
Ich möchte gerne mit einem IC über Nacht von Wien nach Berlin fahren. Ich fahre bereits vor Mitternacht in Wien los und komme erst am Folgetag in Berlin an. Ich muss dabei nicht umsteigen, es ist ein Direktzug. Gilt dieser Zug als Nachtzug & gilt quasi als 1 Reisetag oder muss ich für diese Variante 2 Reisetage meines Interrailpasses in Anspruch nehmen?Vielen Dank & beste Grüße
When to activate, What date do we enter
Hi All, I have purchased a flexi global pass 15 trips in 2 months pass and I want to book train travel from Birmingham to Edinburgh for late September, I'm worried if I book it now will that Activate the card or do I put in future activation date starting the date we arrive overseas. We don't leave Australia until early September., 2023I have a second question, when we are trying to put in my husbands name as per the passport details, it say it will only accept 15 characters, can we use his first name and just an initial for his second name then his surname? even though the passport has his whole name, will this cause us any problems, when we use the pass? Thank you all again Sharon
need help immediately
I booked my trip through global pass. I needed seat reservations for some legs of the trip but not all. I loaded the full trip to the app. I didn’t know it at the time but eurail loaded wrong trains for the seat reservations right trains for others. I’m on the right train but now will miss the other connecting trains I paid for. I am out of the country traveling with a 7 year old and eurail has NO customer service line. All my connecting trains have less than 15 minute breaks between so I can’t even speak to an agent. What ami supposed to do? I don’t know if I even have seats. I want to be safe in Europe. Not stranded with a 7 year old in Switzerland. Please help!
Copenhagen to Hamburg on 26 August
Hi, New to the forum, but have ‘done’ a couple of Interrail trips in the past couple of years. Am going to be travelling from Copenhagen to Hamburg and then onto Nuremberg on 26 August. As I understand, seat reservations are compulsory on the direct trains between Copenhagen and Hamburg in the summer months, and these are extremely popular with demand outstripping supply, so I’m keen to book the seats asap. I note seat reservations aren’t yet available on the DSB website. Bahn.de, however, is showing services for that day and is suggesting a change at Fredericia. The Interrail website says the same thing, adding that reservations are optional. Is this correct? I note looking at dates before 26 August trains are terminating at Hamburg Altona, so I’m wondering if there are engineering works that day that mean the direct trains cannot run? Thanks in advance for your help.

Train from Lamezia to Messina
We are flying into Lamezia (SUF) in September and are going on to Messina by train. We do have a Rail Pass. I know we have to to take a bus from the airport to Lamezia Centrale and then board the train to Messina. I am confused about what happens when we get Villa San Giovanni. Does the train then go on the ferry and we end up in Messina Centrale or does the train journey end in Villa San Giovanni and we have to make our way to the ferry port and pay to board the ferry and get off in Messina Maritima? Can someone please clear up my confusion over this matter.

Hello,I have a question. My boyfriend and I are going to travel to Italy in July. I have a ticket for Italy only and because I live near the Italian border and he has a ticket for more countries because he is from Germany.

Hey!I am trying to reserve a seat from Amsterdam - Paris (Train: Thalys) for Sunday but it shows it to be “train fully booked” on the eurail website and whenever I try to use the interrail pass.

Nighttrain on the 5th out of 5 days
Hello, I am planning a trip to Sweden this summer. For that i intend to buy a global pass with 5 travel days within one month. The interrail website states that it is not possible to take a nighttrain on the last day that the pass is valid. However, if my pass is valid for example from the first of July to the first of August, but the 23rd of July is already my fifth travel day, is it then allowed to take a nighttrain from 23rd to 24th of July and basically drive on 6 days? Theoratically the pass is still valid on that day but Im out of travel days…Thanks for helping
