Do you have to start/finish your trip in your country of residence?
Hello,I live in the UK but in order to get the most out of my pass, I’m wondering whether to just take the Eurostar to Belgium with an ordinary Eurostar ticket (ie not the pass) and then start using the pass in Belgium. I’m also not sure that I want to do a round trip which returns to my country of residence - can I do this or does my final travel day have to be back to my country of residence? Thanks
Add journey and traveller
I can not add my journey or a traveller. When i add a journey, it says i just have to add the traveller (myself). When i do that, it says i have to add a journey. and so on…I don`t know what to do..All my journeys i tried to create are cancelled (it says they are already done?)

Carry On Bag
Hello people!As my previous question insinuates, I am going on an interrail trip this summer. We start in Dublin, catching a flight to Madrid and ending in Paris. I have just one question for some people(Mostly Irish) about Carry on bag rules. So I have my flights booked that allows me to have a 10kg Carry On and a 20kg Checked bag if I want to, but obviously the horror stories of lost bags in Airports has set me off checking in my bag if I can avoid it as much as possible. So I have recently purchased a bag from Decathlon, it’s a Forclaz 50L Men’s trekking bag, link here: https://www.decathlon.ie/backpacks-41-liters-and-more/309807-72760-men-s-mountain-trekking-rucksack-trek-100-easyfit-50l-black.html#/demodelsize-254no_size/demodelcolor-8559690It’s dimensions are 58cm Height, 26cm Wide and 26cm of Depth. My question to people who have travelled Aer Lingus before with their carry on bags, do you think I’d get away with bringing that on and not checking it in? It is slightly taller tha
Travel day used unintentionally
Hi, I’ve sent an email to customer service but not sure if they reply quickly enough. Is there a contact number?I boarded my train for Bratislava from Krakow an hour ago which I have a separate train ticket for to my pass. But stupidly I also added it to my pass so I had the time schedule easily accessible but now it’s activated a day that I didn’t need - I immediately took this journey off my plan but it didn’t give me the day of travel back. I’m having a huge panic now that I won’t have enough days left for when I actually need them :( I’ve seen that a few people have had something similar happen and onlycustomer service can intervene. Does anyone have any other way of reaching them other that email. I have a severe anxiety and really wishing I had just wrote the time down on my hand instead. Feeling really stupid now. Thank you in advance!
Travel - Salzburg to Lesce Bled
Hi. We are scheduled to travel from Salzburg to Lesce Bled next weekend and the timetable is not showing any direct trains as is mentioned on Man in Seat 61. It looks like we will need to part travel on the OBB bus fromBischofshofen Bahnhof (Vorplatz) D11.20 Bus SV220 toSpital-Millstatter See Bahnhof A12.40 and then pick up train connections to Villach , Jesenice and Lesce. Can anyone please tell me if the Interail pass is valid on the bus element of this route. Alternatively if any can see a direct or purely train route please let me know. Thanks John
Outbound & incoming trips with one country passes
Hi everyone, sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere, I just couldn’t find it…So, we live in Germany and are planning to get a One Country Pass for France to visit some friends in September. Can we use the pass for the outgoing train from Germany and the inbound train on our way back? I know this is possible with the Global Pass, just not sure about the One Country ones…Thanks in advance!
I need help immediately
Hey guys, we are traveling through Europe, but it seems that we already used our Inbound/ Outbound. The Problem is that we‘ve travaled from our home country Germany to the Netherlands, then back to Germany and now want to go to France. When we try to Check in our Travel to France it sende this error massage.
Regarding amending a ticket on OBB trains
Hi, I booked a RJX train ticket from Innsbruck to Zurich on the OBB website and inadvertently booked a seat which I don’t like. Is there any possibility to amend the reserved seat location now? There is an option of seat only(no tickets) but it seems that would unnecessarily book two seats for me (the earlier one which I booked with the ticket and the new one with the preferred seat option) Thanks Arnab
Help with European SIM card
Hi All,My wife and I will activate our mobile Eurailpass when we land in Frankfurt. We plan to go from FRA to Bern that morning. I know that FRA will have wifi, but my concern is what SIM to buy for use in ITALY (we have wifi in Switzerland at our friend’s home). I would like a SIM card that I can use not only in Italy but in Germany as we will be in Germany for a month. Last year, when I was only in Germany, I used 02, but obviously I want something that will be dependable in Italy. Do you suggest getting one SIM card for Italy and then 02 when I am in Germany? Thank you!!
Past Midnight Conductor
I’m on an overnight train from Paris to Vienna and the conductor still hasn’t come around. It’s getting close to midnight and I’m worried when he asks to see my Eurail mobile pass it will not be there as the “travel day” will be over. The last pick up station is just after midnight. Is there anything I should or can do? I have our seat reservations, but what makes me most nervous is that this is the first time I’m adding a journey manually, as it was not in the rail planner app. Has anyone run into this problem before of a conductor not coming around until after midnight?

How useful is the EuRail pass for travelling within a city?
I’m currently trying to decide if I should buy the 2 month continuous rail pass, or the 15 in 2 month pass. I’ve worked out all my itinerary and transit. Considering ONLY transit between each big city destination I would save around €175 by choosing the 15 day option. This is doing all my math to consider which trains require reservations and so on.I am hesitating because I’m wondering how much I would use the EuRail pass once I am actually AT my destination. I know I cannot use the pass for busses or metros, but I can still use them for trains (including if I wanted to add any last minute day trips into my itinerary). I’m debating whether the flexibility with the continuous pass is financially worth it, and if its worth it because of savings when I’m actually in each city. My question to the community - is the pass worth it while you are in the city? Did anyone find themselves using the pass often for getting around big city centres? For example, getting around Rome as I’m staying fur
Activation Date for Global Pass
Hi. I’m sure this question has been answered hundreds of times but I’m still a tadge confused. I have a 2 month pass and it says on the App that it has to be activated at the latest by 9th April 2023. Does this mean that I can input a 9th April Activation date (with all journeys taking place between 0001 on the 9th April to 2359 on 8th June ) or do I have to activate the pass on the 8th April by 2359 and complete all journeys by 2359 on 8th June.
