Eurostar Date Mix Up
Hi, I’m completely new to using the Interrail Pass and already I’ve made a couple of fairly major blunders. Here is the latest: I have a Global 1st Class Pass on my phone (1 month). I planned to return to my home town of Newcastle in the UK from Antwerp (via Brussels) on 2nd May so I scheduled the trip in the Rail Planner and then applied for and received a seat reservation for that date. However, I have just noticed that somehow my Eurostar journey appears to be scheduled on my phone for the 1st May, and also at a later time of day (14.04) than the reservation on the 2nd May (12.56). How serious is all this, and can I do anything to change my travel day to 2nd May to fit in with the reservation I have paid for on the 2nd May?
London to Paris to Belgium to Amsterdam and back to London
I'm American, currently in London and booked a hotel for Paris from Dec. 23 - Dec 26..Looking.at regular Eurostar the prices were super expensive. (Last minute trip) I aslo see it doesn't run on the 26th either when mymhotel stay ends. I also had a trip planned to go to Amsterdam Dec 28- Jan 2, so I thought instead of going back to London , I'd go to Belgium in between and book a hotel for the 26th and 27th then head over to Amsterdam.I belive I could get a eurail flexi pass 1month 5 ride ticket that would handle each stop. I am hoping the 'no trains' on 26th is only for Eurostar and I can find some other train to get to Belgium. Would I need reservations into and out of France only(plus 30 fee on each)? Let me know if this the best/ cheapest way to go or if there's a better route. Thanks in advance.

Is Interrail being 17 years old possible?
Hi guys!To put you in context, I'm turning 18 this year and I've decided to do the Interrail as an end-of-school trip for about a month this summer (2023). I was planning to do it with a friend who will turn 18 in April, so he shouldn't have a problem traveling because by the time summer comes he will already be an adult. I am still 17 years old, and my birthday is in August, although I had planned to do the Interrail in June or July. Am I going to have any problem when traveling or do you recommend me to do it in August or September when I am already 18 years old?I would prefer to do it in June or July even though I'm 17 but I don't know if I'm going to have a problem. Has anyone done it like this? Many thanks!!

Cannot find RE80 train from Milano Centrale to Lugano.
I’ve plan to go to Lugano from Milano Centrale and on that day I’ll use Eurail for Italy.And I’ll take Train RE80 from Milano Centrale to Lugano at 12:43 on 02.Jan.2023So I cannot find this train in timetable.Dose it means, I cannot take this train? or I can take but no need to reserve a seat? Thanks.
My companion and I booked passes but wish to sit together how do we do this.
My partner and I have booked separate passes (both passes are the exact same Global pass) the passes have not yet been activated but we both have put in the date we wish for them to be activated. Question: We want to book reservations for the train but are unsure if we will be together as we cant book specific seating. Is there a way to guarantee we will be sitting together?
UK train strikes
Hi everyone :)My partner and I are planning to travel from the UK to Germany on Friday 16th December but there will be rail strikes on that day. LNER trains to London will probably still be running but if their regular strike schedule is anything to go by there won’t be a train early enough for us to catch our Eurostar connection (since we are coming down from Scotland).Now, National Rail says that if you have a ticket for a strike day you can also use on the day before or after - would the same be fine with the Interrail pass (i.e. can we activate our ticket for the whole way for Friday and then use that to travel the leg to London on Thursday just like you would do with a regular ticket?) I’m just a bit worried that the conductors but be a bit fussy about this since it’s technically a flexible ticket (even though we have already booked our Eurostar journeys out and back into the country and therefore don’t have any inbound/ountbound journey left to allocate)Does anyone here have any
Oebb reservations for domestic italian trains
Two English retirees starting tomorrow on 2 month IST class interrail trip around EuropeAfter reading advice on here, I've used the oebb app to make 2 reservations for Italy1. Viareggio to Salerno on IC train.The app flagged up that mobile tickets were Not Available for this journey, which was contrary to our expectations. Tickets could only be via email and pdf to print out, or to collect in Austria. Maybe this is because they are domestic Italian trains. Does anyone know? 2. Venice to Innsbruck on EC train. Booking and reservation went fine, but seat selection is bad. Diagonally opposite each other on different sides of central gangway. Ie 3 seats apart!!Can this be changed in anyway, online or in person when we get to Venice.Thanks for any advice

Advanced reservation on the Eurail Mobile App
Hello!We are a family of 4 (2 Adults, 2 Youths) and we have booked Eurail “15 day in 2 months” (2nd class) in the Global Mobile pass.I have watched the help video but I still have many unclear things.We 4 will be traveling together all the time. So, I have added all 4 passes to my phone. 1) We will make our first journey from London to Amsterdam on June 22, 2023 on Euro star. This needs a seat reservation that cannot be done on the Mobile App.What is the correct process? Do I make the reservation on the Eurail website and it automatically flows through to the mobile App?2) Secondly, I understand that I have to create 4 trips and link each pass to a trip on its own. In that case, how do I make the 4 reservations at once? Do I have to make reservations one by one for each person?
Planning multiple trips on one Pass
Hi everyone, I’ve searched through the interrail website and forums, but am a little confused about how to make this work.It seems like when you activate a pass, you can only use it for a single trip? But you can make additions to that trip once it’s been activated??Here is my situation - I have a 2 month/15day pass, that I haven’t activated yet. I’m planning to travel around for a week in April (Spain and France), return home to London for a month, and then head back out around Germany/Hungary etc. to complete the rest of my pass. For planning purposes, I’ve been considering these as two seperate trips. I’m nearly done planning my route for the Spain/France trip, but hadn’t started thinking about the later one just yet. I was expecting to plan that once I returned from the first ‘leg’.Once I activate the pass for travelling in Spain, I’m concerned I won’t be able to then add the 2nd part of my trip later, even though the pass will still be valid and in-date. I don’t want to end up usi

[Trenitalia] change the train time reservation and refund for seat reservation
On January 11, 2023, with a friend in Eurail pass, I took the train 1. from visp to milano centrale (08:33 -> 10:40) and 2. from Milano Centrale to Firenze S.M.N (11:10 -> 13:04). reserved a seat.

Hi we’re first time interailers looking for some advise and help! Me and my friend plan on travelling from March-May visiting Sorrento-Rome-Florence-Venice-Vienna-Budapest- Ljubljana-Zagreb- split. If anyone can help answer the questions below it would be super helpful. When travelling from Slovenia to Zagreb(Croatia) as it’s not in the Schengen area will we experience any issues? Is it best to book reservations on the actual train website rather than the interail website? We plan on travelling on an overnight train from Venice to Vienna does that class as two seperate travel days? When is best to active our pass and add our travel days
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
