Travelling in my home country Spain - Rules
Hello, We are using an interrail pass to travel from Spain (my home country) to the UK. On the way back we are stopping in Paris and then want to get from Paris to Madrid. As I understand it to get from Paris to Madrid I have to go Paris-Barcelona and then Barcelona-Madrid. Is that correct? And if yes. Can I include both the Paris-Barcelona and Barcelona-Madrid journeys with my interrail ticket if I do the whole journey on one day?? RENFE have said I cannot travel at all in my home country. But I think that is wrong. Please could someone send me a link to the rules so that I can take them to RENFE? Many thanks.
Why can't I pay with my credit card?
I just wanted to pay the tickets with my credit card, I filled all the forms and my credit card number, but when I clicked the button, all thing just restarted, and it had me to refill the credit card number again. Now, I’m worry about whether I should fill the credit card number again. I’m afraid that I have to the pay double tickets.
Öresundståg disappeared from timetable
When looking for a train between Lund central and Copenhagen before the 10th of December you can take the Öresundståg without reservation but after the 10th of December that is no longer an option and you have to take a SJ high-speed train (for which I have to make a reservation, but I can't make a reservation through interrail, so I want to avoid it). I checked a local traffic app (Skånetraffiken), so I know the Öresundståg is still operational. So can I trust that the interrail pass works on the Öresundståg eventhough its not in the timetable or what is going on?
Country of residence - Basel or Basel Bad BF
The global pass allows one outbound journey and one inbound journey to / from country of residence that occur during travel days at any point in your trip.I am a resident of Switzerland, and I am planning to make the following weekend trips : Return journey between Basel / Milan Return journey between Basel / Cologne Return journey between Basel / HamburgAm I able to do so on my pass? Is this considered an outbound / inbound journey as technically I am not travelling within Switzerland. Thanks for your help!!
I am new to this game and I don’t even know what tags are. I have bought a five day pass and I want to travel to Brindisi in Italy in February I would like to take two days in daylight to see the scenery and one week later the same coming back. I hope to travel from Swansea in South Wales. Is this possible. I am on the verge of starting to get old 80 but I am determined to make it. I think it will be easier for me to book the individual trains at the stations. Does anyone think this is possible.? You have my kind regards, David shaw.
Reimbursement reservations tgv due to strike
We have tgv seat reservations for next sunday, but the train has been cancelled due to strikes. No rebooking is possible because all alternatieve trains are fully booked. We have to revert to slower local trains. SNCF offers a 20% reimbursement, but we cannot get this because the seats were booked through interrail. How can we be reimbursed by interrail? We cannot find any information on the website.
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?

Kris - Exploring Europe with a wheelchair (2/2)Blog
Meet Kris: a 23-year-old Dutch girl travelling across Europe with Interrail. Diagnosed with Ehler Danlos syndrome, Kris is exploring Europe in her electric-powered wheelchair. With her Instagram and YouTube adventures, she's sharing her adventures to show that travel is possible for anyone.After a 50 hour travel journey i'm replacing my ski clothes at the other side. After traveling through all countries of Scandinavia it was time to travel through the Baltic states. While my wheelchair worked perfect in the extreme winter weather and even in Lapland it suddenly stopped working that well when I arrived in Latvia. My motor broke and without my motor I can't move my wheelchair and can't move myself outside. And there you are, in the middle of Riga, a city with no taxi for wheelchairs, no English speaking train assistance to call and a wheelchair that could stop working every moment. After 2,5 weeks of waiting in a hotel till my new motor should arrive by post, the shipment was canceled.
Problem of connection
Hello, I tried to reserve a seat this morning for an extra fee but it didn't work on the website. Indeed, my Italy trip with all my trains did not appear anymore, nor the travelers participating in the trip (me). I tried to connect with my pass number at least 5 times and it didn't appear each time.So I had to pay a new train ticket on the French SNCF Connect application in 1st class at 235,30€ (almost the full price of the pass) since I couldn't book other trains to Paris from Interrail.I don’t know what to do as I don’t find any number to call in Interrail. thanks for your advice.
Travelling outside of the Euro area
Hi everyone!Coming from France, I’m planning a trip to Northern Europe where most of the countries I crave to visit are not part of the Euro area (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Ireland and the UK).Do you have any feedback or past experience(s) when it comes to the best - thus cheapest - option to ‘decrease’ commission fees and other monetary fees?Thanks in advance,Eve
Sobre precios reserva
Duda sobre precios... buenas noches! Quisiera saber si los precios que apsrecen en la sección de reserva de asientos de la página de Eurail solo son por la reserva o incluyen costo del pasaje... (tengo pase global y de paris a Londres me aparece en la sección de reserva de asientos un costo promedio de 67 dlls... ¿ese costo sólo es por la reserva de asientos?)
question about interrail global pass
Hi, I want to take a trip to Austria form the end of December to the start of January. So, I was thinking of taking the interrail 7-day global pass. From the terms and conditions, it is noted that the Interrail Global Pass is valid in your country of residence for one outward journey and one return journey which you can make at any time during your travel days. So I wanted to know if the pass is also valid for travel to several cities in Austria.Thanks in advance for your information.Charlotte SAGNARD
Reservations in Spain
My family will travel in Spain this July - from France to Barcelona to Mallorca, then Seville. I am trying to reserve tickets on Eurail ahead, but they don't let you do that in Spain for some strange reason. We will be stay in Barcelona for 3 days then fly to Mallorca and back then down to Seville. We need to do the Mallorca to Seville trip in one day. But I can't find anything listed about times in Spain. I need to know so I know when to book the Mallorca flight. Please help me.
Travelling during strikes/refunds
Hi folks- Probably a common thread at the moment, but I am travelling next wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th through France. Im meant to be heading into Paris on the Eurostar at 16:22 getting in at 19:57 on wednesday 5th,and Im then meant to be heading on the high speed train from Paris Gare du Lyon to Zurich on Thursday at 07:15. Is it possible to predict whether these routes will be affected? If not and it ends up being wiser to get alternative transport through France, can I get refund on the reservation costs of these journeys? If so, how do i go about doing that? Thanks in advance. Peter

Seat reservations in Italy--help!
Hi all, thanks for answering my previous questions. I won’t have any trouble with most reservations but I am with ITALY. Both OBB and the Trenitalia sites will not sell a seat reservation for May 29th Florence to Lugano (usually via Bologna or Milan). The OBB site (regardless of date) says NO TICKET and yet if I want to BUY one there are tickets for sale. Please help me figure out how to get such a simple thing like an Italian train seat reservation. Germany and France are easy! Many thanks!Scott
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
