Using Benulux Pass to travel from Amsterdam to Belin
Just activated my Benelux pass. I want to use it to travel from Amsterdam to Berlin. Part of the trip is covered by my pass. If I schedule my trip in the application, will the cost difference on the travel from the Netherlands border to Berlin be shown with an option to pay the difference, or cancel the trip?
Interrail or Eurail for UK citizens/residents
I married a Romanian woman two years ago, and we live in Edinburgh. Unlike the English, Scotland voted against Brexit. Now we would like to visit several cities in the EU and are uncertain about the rules. As a Romanian national, my wife is free to travel using Interrail. I am not. It seems I have to use EU rail.My questions are: Can we take the same train together, given that we are a couple resident in the UK.? Or do the rules require we both travel by the non-EU members’ mode of travel, using Eurail? We would appreciate any advice we can get to clarify our situation.I am 67 years old. My partner is 58.Can you help?Jack FullerEmail:j.xxxxxxxxxgmail.com (removed by moderator due to privacy matters)(Edinburgh, Scotland, UK)
Visa while interrailing
I’m from the Uk and am interrailing for a few weeks and then staying in Sweden for a couple of months. This will take me up to the 90 visa free limit. I’m then going to Bulgaria for a month straight from Sweden. I’ve looked online and it says I don’t need a visa because Bulgaria isn’t part of the Schengen area, but I just wanted to confirm this before booking flights etc.
Booking seats/couchette in night trains
Hello everyone,For this summer im putting together my travel plan. I have a few things that I can’ t seem to figure out regarding the seat reservations on night trains. (FYI I have a 21-day interrail global pass) If I book a train, a night train, from Rotterdam to Zuerich HB it tells me the seats are included. Does this mean that when I activate this ticket, I will be guaranteed to have a seat on the selected train? And what types of seats are these usually? And if reservation is needed/possible, what do you guys recommend. I also want to go from Beograd Centar (Serbia) to Bar (Montenegro). This, again, is a night train. The Eurail website tells me I can buy Serbian tickets at the station. But wouldn’t It be too late to buy tickets if I need to take this night train the same day I get to that particular station?Lastly I am trying to get day train tickets from Zuerich HB to Rome on the 8th of July, but I can’t seem to find any past the 10th of June. Is there a reason for this?If someone
Impossible to get in touch with anyone from customer service
This is a chronic issue with Interrail staff. Very simply, I cannot fathom how a travel agency can operate with no telephone number, no way of contacting them, no email address. This is at the fringes of legality. All you can do is write to a chatbot that represents the current highest standard in artificial dumbness.Three days trying to get in touch with someone and instead I have to deal with this annoying piece of dumb software that tells me 750 times a day that I have received a confirmation email and a ticket has been created.Can someone send me a phone number or email address? Can I talk to some real person?
Would like to do round trips from London to Paris. French citizen
Hello there, I’m a French student in London and I would like to know if there is a pass that could help me do round trips from London to Paris during this whole month? I would like to go to Paris at least twice or 3 times starting in March if it’s possible. Is there any mobile pass that I could buy that’ll allow me to do so? Thanks in advance for your answer!
Dutch trajectory with NS Flex Dal Vrij
I thought I figured it all out… I am travelling with my Interrail Global Pass (mobile) for the first time. My first journey is from Amsterdam to Frankfurt, with ICE 123. In the Netherlands, I have a NS Flex Dal Vrij subscription, which should allow me to travel for free on the Dutch part of the trajectory. I read everything I could find about this, on this forum and on the NS website. So what I did: I added a trip to my pass, manually added a journey to my trip with the ICE 123, starting at Emmerich(Gr), ending in Frankfurt. I brought my NS card but did not check in in Amsterdam. This is how I understand I should do this.However, the NS personnel on the train made me pay a ticket from Amsterdam to Emmerich(Gr), maintaining that I could only travel on my NS Flex subscription without checking in if I had a ticket from Amsterdam to the border station as well. This cost me 61 Euro (1st class). They did not give me a 50 euro fine.Were they right? If so, how could I do this in the future, wi
Bike on UK train
We live in the UK. We booked and paid for 2 rail tickets with bike spaces (no they do not fold down) from our home town to Newcastle where the ferry to The Netherlands sails from. Then afterwards we bought a 3 month Eurail pass and realised it INCLUDES one trip to port of leaving your home country and one back from port of re-entry in your home country to our home town. I have been to my local rail station and they say there is no issue with giving me a full refund on these tickets - BUT nobody seems to know how to add our bike spaces (2) onto this Eurail pass! They just look blankly at you as it’s not a UK company! Any tips appreciated - I am going to get the money back as it was £122.60!!! Thanks Community…...
How to book Istria Express Budapest-Rijeka
Hi, I’m planning to book Budapest - Rijeka overnight for this summer. On the ‘night trains’ part of the interrail website this is available, as the Istria express. However, using the app I cannot find any journeys with less than 3 changes. I also can’t find another website to book through, and even if I could, I wouldn’t know how to add the pass as a discount. Please can someone help? This is to book a night train.

Voyage retour dans le pays de résidence
Bonjour,Je ne comprends pas ce qui concerne le voyage retour dans le pays de résidence :Comment voyager dans votre pays de résidenceNos Pass ont été conçus pour être aussi flexibles que nos voyageurs. Voilà pourquoi votre Interrail Global Pass est désormais valable dans votre pays de résidence, pour un trajet aller et un trajet retour que vous pourrez effectuer à tout moment pendant vos jours de voyage (les trajets aller et retour ne sont pas considérés comme des jours de voyage supplémentaires). Si plusieurs trajets aller-retour sont prévus, vous pouvez vous procurer des billets individuels auprès de la compagnie ferroviaire de votre pays.Ces voyages doivent être effectués pendant la durée de validité de votre Pass. Si vous disposez d'un Pass proposant des jours de voyage flexibles, comme le pass 10 jours sur une période de 2 mois, et que vous souhaitez commencer ou finir votre voyage dans votre pays de résidence, ces trajets doivent avoir lieu pendant vos jours de voyage. Nous vous r
