Rail Planner App, journey not showing for Italy
Hi, just wondering how far in advance the trains are planned and how set in stone it is? For example, I’m looking at going from Interlaken at about 8am to Milan from 11am - 3pm and then off to Rome after that on the same day (about 4 hours on each train if you book in May), but it will not show this same thing when looking at the dates in late June and July. Sometimes it does not come up at all, other times it may say 13 hours? Does anyone know why this is? Will this route not be available if I travel in summer?
IC train with Eurail - how to board if no reservation required?
Hello.I will be in Amsterdam for the first time, soon, and am unfamiliar with the practices there.I have a 1st Class Eurail pass, Digital.I will travel from Amsterdam to Brussels. No seat reservations are required for the IC train. And the app says that the price of IC trains are already included in my Eurail pass. But can anyone tell me if there is anything that I must do on the Eurail app before I board the IC train? Since there are no reservations required, and permission to use the train is already included in my Eurail app, then do I simply walk onto the train without a printed ticket or barcode? Thank you.
Interrail greek islands 4 days mobile pass?
Hello, there will be a mobile pass for the Greek Islands 4 days pass shortly? If not, should I wait until I get the paper pass by post to make the first ferry reservation?Also, I would like to know when I make the ferry online reservation, if I can get the boarding pass online as in a standard reservation…. or if by the contrary using the pass, the boarding pass mut be obtained phisically.Many thanks for all in advance, María
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.
Is Eurail Pass no longer valid on some Polish trains
Specifically I’m looking at the Katowice to Vienna (Wien) international route. This is one of the routes that is subject to “Oferta Super Promo International” - there are PDFs available that show this pricing applies to most, if not all international rail routes into Poland. It seems this was started in early 2022.Normally on the PKP/Intercity booking site https://www.intercity.pl/en/ , when booking a domestic train you can select a Eurail “reservation only” from the Discount/reservation type dropdown list on the selected train. No problems, it works as far as I’m aware.If I select almost any train a few days ahead from Katowice to Wien Hbf on the PKP/Intercity website, there is no option to select Eurail, I just get the message that it’s a special offer with a tick-box that cannot be deselected. I need to reserve two months ahead and cannot see any way around this.Polrail say they can reserve a seat, but their pricing to buy a full ticket on this route bears no relation to the PKP pub
Inter-country trains from spain

Activating Greek Island Pass
Good evening,We bought a 6 days Greek Island Pass. The Greek Islands Pass Guide notes that it is impartant to book ferries in the order of use, the date of the first ferry is the activation date of the pass. We already booked a ferry from Italy tot Greece, but didn't need tot give our Pass number. For booking domestic ferries the pass number is needed. How do I know for sure that the system knows that we already booked a ferry and the pass is activated on the Italy - Greece crossing and not on the first domestic ferry (and we have to pay for the Italy - Greece crossing)? Thanks in advance,Martin
Train non disponible
Bonjour, J’ai commandé un pass interrail et je ne comprends pas pourquoi je ne peux pas déjà réserver mes billets de train. Je comptais partir début juillet mais les billets ne sont pas encore réservable. De plus je souhaite faire un trajet Paris-Prague en interail et on nous indique un message d’erreur pour l’un des trains que nous devrions prendre. Cela veut-il dire que ce train ne sera pas possible d’être réservé même plus tard ? Car j’ai mis le même trajet pour une date ou les billet sont déjà censé pouvoir être réservé, mais le même message apparait. Merci.
changing a time/date within a saved trip
I’m still thinking through my route but I’ve started to save my initial trip plan with 5 rail journeys added so far - each follows on from the other. I haven’t activated the pass or any part of the trip yet. I am sure I will want to make some changes to these to add to or reduce some stays once I have the full (draft) trip entered - maybe to stay longer in one place and reduce time in another. I’m just struggling to see how I make edits like small changes, such as time, and keep the entry. I know I can delete journeys and add new ones but that’s long winded. Any ideas?
Interrail Greek Island Pass
Me and my partner came up with the idea of interailing with the greek island pass however they only offer 4/6 day passes and ideally we were looking to go for 2 weeks. Would it be more economical/reasonable to buy 2x passes each for us or to use the general “15 day pass” as a solution. Since im not sure the regular pass covers the benefits that the greek pass does: A 30% discount on all additional trips within the Greek Islands during the validity period of your pass. A 30% reduction on all upgrades in accommodation (except Lux cabins). Valid for international and domestic routes. Fuel charges and port fees.Thanks!!

Durchreise durch das Heimatland
Hi, Ich habe mich gefragt, wenn ich noch keins meiner Ein- oder Ausreisetage genutzt habe zählt dann eine durchfahrt durch mein Heimatland als Einreise und Ausreise wenn ich dies an einem Tag mache? Oder wird da nur eins von von diesen verwendet und ich kann am Ende des Tickets nochmal Einreisen? Hinzu käme dass die Einreise ein Nachtzug wäre und die Ausreise dann über den Tag geht.
travelling between Belgium - Italy
Hello there,I am going to Syracuse in Sicily, Italy this summer, for about a week. I prefer not to take the plane, and was thinking taking the train could be a good alternative. Do you have any suggestions for which route to take and which stations/trains to take? I was thinking:Belgium (starting in Antwerp or Brussels), France, Swiss, Italy (Catania is closest big railwaystation). Would like to make as less stops as possible in between Belgium and Italy.And which pass should I buy for this? This is all very new to me :) Would this be a good option, or does anyone know about a direct option from Belgium to Italy (I prefer to go there in 1 ride, I dont want to make stops in any cities in between). Thanks so much!Anne
Does the Winter Sale turn the standard pass into a promotional pass?
Hi there,I ask this question in regards to the cancellation and refund policy. I have read that refunds are different for eurail passes when they are promotional, however, I would like to know if a SALE (ie the winter sale) degrades the standard pass to a promotional pass, and then promotional pass refund rules would apply.
