Hi everyone! I am considering buying a 4-day Greek Island Pass for myself and my sister, but before purchasing, I would like to clarify an issue that seems to have popped up for many others. Is it or is it no longer required to book domestic ferries in chronological order? I’m seeing some conflicting information (both saying yes and no) on the forum, and wanted to see if I can clarify this.The reason I am wondering is because I would like to start by booking a 5-day stay in Naxos during September (i.e. a return ticket) via the Hellenic Seaways website. From Naxos, I would like to make the most out of my pass and use it one day to go to Paros, and maybe to another island nearby (bringing me to 4 days in total of travelling domestically). However, I do not want to risk that by booking the return ticket online, I cannot use the pass at all during the days in between going to Naxos and leaving Naxos. We would be leaving Greece immediately after our return from Naxos, and could thus not mak

Hey Guys, my girlfriend and me are in Barcelona right now and thinking about doing a day trip to Blanes. Therefore, we hoped to use our global passes. The problem is, that the Rail Planner app couldn't find the station of Blanes.My app is updated to the latest version. Also, RENFE website as well as the official tourist information tells us trains are operating. Does anybody know if and how we could use our passes for the day trip? Anyways, thanks for your help.
I’m planning my train route through Italy and some trains are showing that I need a seat reservation but with no price. When I go to make that seat reservation it states that seat reservations are unavailable. What do I do in this situation? Thanks in advance for the help.
Hello everyone,My friends and I have received the Interrail France-Germany Pass and will be traveling by train from Germany to France in September.

Now we're wondering, can we also use the Interrail France-Germany Pass for public transportation in France?Thanks in advance for the answers
Start point Paris (3 days)>>>Berlin (3 days)>>>Barcelona (3 days)>>>Paris (1 day)>>>then fly back to US
My partner is running the Berlin Marathon and figured we’d travel to a few countries in Europe while we’re at it. First we arrive in Paris…Option 1 (Paris - stay 3 nights)>>>(Berlin - stay 3 nights)>>>(Barcelona-3 nights)>>>(Paris-stay 1 to 2 nights)Option 2 (Paris - stay one night)>>>(Amsterdam - stay two nights)>>>(Berlin - stay 3 nights)>>>(Barcelona-3 nights)>>>(Paris-stay 1 to 2 nights)Which would be more feasible? What is there to do in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and Barcelona? What are the must visit places and food places to visit? or should we replace our visit with another country?
Hi, I’m hoping to manage to get to Budapest next week from Istanbul. I’m about to buy the ticket to Bucharest and then will have about 90 minutes and I’ll need to board the sleeper to Budapest (I know, it’s ‘ambitious’). I’m trying to get to my family by train and need to book the Bucharest-Budapest connection in advance online and it’s pretty expensive. From there I’m hoping to get on the all-day train to Warsaw, but again, who knows if it’s possible with border crossings etc. Does anyone have experience with Bosphorus Express - does it arrive on time usually? Thanks a million!
Hey guys, I want to buy a Global Pass and let's assume I reside in Germany... that doesn't work, right? I can only enter and exit once. How am I supposed to travel from east to west and from south to north without going through Germany? And that for 2 months? Let's say I start from Germany to Poland, but then want to go to France, do I have to go to Italy first???? That would be total nonsense, wouldn't it?
My train from Vienna to Venice leaves at around 6 am in the morning on the 7th of September. Will that train be affected by the derailment accident of the Swiss Gotthard Tunnel?Then name of my train is RJ 131 and I think its route is only Vienna to Venice, if I did my research correctly. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and I'd love some clarity on my doubts!
Hello Thx for any help to the following, much appreciated.If a person has a first class Eurail Pass but the route has to be reserved and only 2nd class reservations are available, would that person have any chance of sitting in first class? [My wife heard your bags are more secure in first class?] We are first timers. 2) If a route is recommended to buy reservations but not required and they are no reservations available would that mean the Train is full or do they only sell a limited amount of reservations? I live in a community with Ferries and they sell way too many reservations in peak season (cash grab). Thx for any help. Brian
I am an international student will be travelling from Nantes, France to Paris and I will have several pieces of luggage with me on my journey home. One of my suitcases is very large. Where will I be able to put that on a train? I am worried that I won’t find luggage space as I will be travelling Dec 23rd...a busy travel day. I want to be able to put my luggage in an area on the train so that I can keep an eye on it. Also, I was thinking storing my big pieces of luggage in Paris a CDG airport before further travel to other countries. Can anyone recommend a good place to store luggage at this airport? I will be flying back to Canada from Terminal 2 at that airport a few weeks later. Or would it be smarter to store my luggage at the train station near the airport?
⚠️ Train derailment in Swiss Gotthard tunnel on route Zurich – MilanTrain disruptions
The Swiss National Railways has announced that a freight train derailment on 10th August in the Gotthard Base Tunnel located on the route between Zurich to Milan has caused severe track damage. SBB expects that the tunnel will only be available for passenger train travel from the beginning of 2024. As a result, direct international trains will now take the scenic route across the mountains instead of the tunnel, resulting in 1 hour longer travel times. For this reason, SBB recommends catching a 1-hour earlier train from Zurich so as to not miss any further connecting trains. The following routes are the direct international Eurocity routes:Eurocity Zurich – Lugano – Milan/Verona/Venice/Genova Eurocity Basel – Luzern – Lugano – MilanFor all other international and domestic connections, there are hourly direct trains from Zurich to Chiasso taking the scenic route instead of the tunnel. In Chiasso, one can change trains for destinations such as Lugano, Como, Milan, and Bologna. In additi

Liebe Community, ich hab eine Frage bzgl. meiner geplanten Interrail-Reise/meinem Pass: Wenn ich an meinem letzten Reisetag mit einem Nachtzug nach Deutschland nach Hause fahre und dabei nicht den Zug wechseln muss (also letztlich vor 0 Uhr in meinen Nachtzug einsteige und dann einfach weiterfahre): Benötige ich mehr als einen Reisetag (= den Abreisetag)? Das FAQ hat mich mit verschiedenen Kapiteln etwas verwirrt, wobei die erste Antwort dort und der Interrail-Chatbot aussagen, dass man genau einen Reisetag benötigt. Konkret geht es um die Fahrt von Budapest nach Ulm, die in Budapest bereits vor 0 Uhr startet, allerdings erst nach 0 Uhr in Ulm ankommt. Vielen Dank bereits im Voraus für Eure Meinungen und Erfahrungen! Liebe GrüßeSophia————————————————————————-Dear Community,I have a question regarding my planned Interrail trip/my pass:If I take a night train home to Germany on my last day of travel, and I don't have to change trains (so ultimately I get on my night train before 0am and
