Are there annual Eurail/Interrail price increases - if so, when?
Hi.I realise the answer is likely “not set in stone”, so this question really goes out to anyone with long standing knowledge of the pricing of the Eurail/Interrail passes.Clearly the price will go up over time. And the 11 month validity makes it possible to buy the passes well in advance. So, I’m contemplating buying passes for the family for travel in Italy next May - in case the price is hiked in the meantime.Anyone forum sages able to take an educated guess when the next price increase might be?Many thanks.PB

Back to the continent at last for an Adaptive surf contest, part 1Blog
Very excited to be finally going back on the Eurostar over to the continent after a few years since the pandemic had blocked what was for me a regular thing, This time as I put a surfboard under my arm it was with some nerves as I began preparing the wheelchair. As brief overview, with my physical disability I have tried to rediscover the sports I enjoyed before the onset of my disease, this have been both snow and sea related in the form of skiing and surfing. 18 months ago I got back in the water and slowly and surely found a way to get across the waves in the form of a knee surfer style. By chance I bumped into an adaptive England team coach in the water who told me there is a World Series of adaptive surfing competitions out there. So fast forward to 3 weeks ago and after competing in my first international competition in England, this was my second chance to ride some World Series competition waves comes around in Perros-Guric, Brittany, far North-west France.

Best Small Towns to Visit in Switzerland
Hello! We will be traveling in Switzerland for 6 days in late May 2023. We have identified several small quaint towns to potentially visit while there. My concern is the lists came from large national publications with millions of subscribers. The towns may no longer be small or quaint when we visit!Can you recommend some small, charming towns/villages for us to consider?Thank you for your time and consideration. Jim Waters
Back on the continent and off to surf…- part 2Blog
When you arrive in Paris you spill out straight in to the busy centre of Parisian life, one of the amazing things of course of European train travel, is the immediate access to the centre of its cities. In my case the surf trip out to Brittany involved departing from Gare Montparnasse. Paris is not easy in a wheelchair, that’s my warning. Metro and RER are not accessible at all, so don’t try. You have two options one is to catch the bus, there are buses opposite the station which can take you to all the other major stations of Paris in about one hour. Put your hand out for the driver and ask for ‘la ramp’ which on Paris buses descends from the back door. Remember once the driver has shut the main doors, they reopen them again to engage the ramp, he is not driving off as it first seems! The other option is G7 taxis booked in advance and cost about €50 to get to the other main stations of Paris stations. They are fully equipped and usually meet you at the head of the train, www.g7.fr A
Trip from Paris to Barcelona
Hi! I want to travel from paris to barcelona and I am not sure whether I should be buying a one country pass or a global pass. One of the scheduled trains tells me that if I have a one country pass I need to buy the ticket separatelywhile the other scheduled time does not have any instruction whatsoeverI am a bit confused because the train travels across countries. I do not need a globa pass I am just taking this train
Hi, I have a problem about my pass. The duration of my pass is from 23 December 2022 until 22 January 2023, but today is 02 January 2023 and it shows that my pass is expired so I can’t add any new travel day. Is there any way to fix this? I’ve contacted the customer service, but I didn’t get any reply yet and I am traveling today. Thank you.
first time interrail- spain and portugal
Hello Community!My sister and i are planning our first interrail trip for 4 weeks in may and June. Because it will be our first interrail tour, we hope to get some help from you. I informed myself a lot, but I'm very confused, because of so much informations. First I will show you the route we want to do:We will start at 25.05.2023 in Valencia?Then: Valencia to Alicante, Alicante to Granada, Granada to Cordoba, Cordoba to Sevilla, Sevilla to Faro, Faro to Lagos, Lagos to Lisbon, Lisbon to Madrid, Madrid to Barcelona, Barcelona to Marseille, Marseille to Nice, Nice to Venedig or Nice to Milan, at the end back to Germany.My questions:I noticed that there are seat reservations required in Spain. Can I book them in advance from Germany at a DB shelter? Or do I have them to book on a RENFE site? First, we thought about buying a global pass, 15 days in two months. Do you think it's better to take less days and use buses instead of trains? Are buses like ALSA a good opportunity to travel chea

seating plan for ICE 9573 10:55 Paris Est to Karlsruhe.
Can anybody tell me which seating plan to look at for the ICE 9573 Paris Est to Karlsruhe at 10:55 on 24th Nov. Seats allocated through Interrail were not suitable as they were seating us one behind the other. I took Brendan's advice and telephoned SNCF. The lady was very helpful and changed the seats. However, I think I'm still in the same position. The seats are in first class in carriage 28 seats 71&72. I think the original seats were same carriage 41&42. As far as I can see they are in a single row or in a compartment for 6 by a corridor. Any help would be appreciated.
Eurail First Class seat reservation
I am trying to understand what you get with the First Class Eurail Global Pass ticket. We will be travelling from London to Rome via train from the last week of April through to Mid May (a little over 3 weeks). We are going from London - Brussels - Paris - Geneva - Zurich - Venice - Florence - Rome - Amsterdam. We have not yet purchased our global pass, but If we purchase first class global pass do we still have to pay for the standard or first class seat reservations? For example, the app states that we have to pay an additional 44 dollars per person for first class tickets on the Eurostar from London to Brussels. Similar examples of needing to pay for a seat reservation include the trip from Paris to Geneva and all the trips in Italy. If we purchase a First Class Global pass would we still have to pay these seat reservations and if so would they be less than what is shown in the App?

Rail strikes and connections
Hello everyone,I'm a first time interrailer and had my first trip (from germany to the uk and back) all planned out when I ran into problems for my trip back due to the announced strikes in great britain.My intended itinerary had me taking a train from Leeds to London on the morning of the 30.3. and then the Eurostar to Paris at 17:31. Since this late train would make getting all the way home quite tight and depending on a lot of connections, so I opted for staying the night in Paris and taking the TGV to Freiburg at 17:25 on the 31.3.I'm travelling with a global pass and have already reserved the Eurostar as well as the TGV.With the now announced strikes I'm unsure how to proceed, as at the moment it looks like there will be a high possibility of no train running on the 30st from Leeds to London (there is no strike timetable yet) so I have no possibility of getting to London in time to get the Eurostar.What possibilities do I have here?I'd rebook to an Eurostar on the 31st, but there
help in planning my 3 weeks in Italy and how to get best use of Interrail Pass.
Based in London, I’m a senior, solo traveller, and in Italy only having seen Rome and Florence briefly some 50 years ago, Then a sad trip to Venice (nothing to do with the city) in 2010.I want to get to know Italy, particularly its food and wine. I’m a freelance writer and translator.I am attending a 1-week retreat in Perugia from 15 April and I would like to travel in Italy for 3 weeks after that, from 22 April to 13 May.Should I get an interrail pass for ??? days travel in 1 month?Can I use the Interrail to get to Perugia from the airport when I arrive from London? I can fly into Florence or Bologna. The 2nd class Interrail pass does not let you take airport train in Florence, it seems. Does this make sense economically?How do I get the most of the Interrail Pass in my situation.I am not interested in being everywhere, but rather in staying in a place at least 2,3 days and get to know it and its people.The wines I adore from Italy are not the expensive big names, no Super Tuscans
