Missed Eurostar Paris to London due to SNCF cancellation
I am travelling on a global pass one month first class fare between England (origin) France and Spain. I am travelling home from south of Barcelona to Newcastle, UK. I am travelling with an assistance dog which make things a little more complicated. I travelled from Barcelona Sants to Latour du Carol on the 14.30 train on Friday 21st April. I had also booked onwards travel to Paris on the night train from Latour du Carol (Pyrénées) to Paris, Fri 21st April, dep. 18.49 arriving 22nd April 06.33. My Eurostar was booked for Paris-London on Sat 22nd at 09.13. At 18.00 SNCF cancelled the night train and I was stranded in Latour du Carol. The staff at Latour were inexperienced and unhelpful and told me to head back to the next town (Puigcerda, 4 mins away by train, but in Spain) and stay the night, getting the train in the morning back to Latour de Carol. This was a bad idea as I arrived in puigcerda and there were no trains in the morning and no one to help. I got a cab back to Latour (€40
Regarding amending a ticket on OBB trains
Hi, I booked a RJX train ticket from Innsbruck to Zurich on the OBB website and inadvertently booked a seat which I don’t like. Is there any possibility to amend the reserved seat location now? There is an option of seat only(no tickets) but it seems that would unnecessarily book two seats for me (the earlier one which I booked with the ticket and the new one with the preferred seat option) Thanks Arnab
help purchasing a Greek island pass
Hey community…I was wondering if anyone has tried to purchase a Greek Island pass in the past couple days and been unable to? Every time I try to add it to my cart I get a messaging telling me that this pass can’t be added to my cart because its not possible to buy a mobile pass and a paper pass together at the moment. to continue, check out with the passes in my cart first then come back and buy this pass separately. Thing is, I don’t have anything in my cart - yep its empty!!
Is there a "seat guru" to say which are best (and worst) seats on Eurostar?
I’m traveling Standard Premier London to Amsterdam in June and booked directly with Eurostar, so I can change the assigned seat. I have chosen a seat that says “window seat” but came to find out there is no window at all, it is simply not an aisle seat, but no window. I want to pick a forward facing seat with a window, preferably a single seat format. But it appears there are very few of those with a window in Coach 1. I was wondering if there is a website like seat guru for airplanes, that tells which are ok seats on Eurostar and which are really bad seats.
Outbound & incoming trips with one country passes
Hi everyone, sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere, I just couldn’t find it…So, we live in Germany and are planning to get a One Country Pass for France to visit some friends in September. Can we use the pass for the outgoing train from Germany and the inbound train on our way back? I know this is possible with the Global Pass, just not sure about the One Country ones…Thanks in advance!

If 2x Passes on one device, can one person complete the Journey earlier than the other?
My friend and I both bought a 2-months Global Pass. We are going to travel together for 45 days, then she will depart to her home country, and I will continue to use the Pass for remaining 15 days.I am going to put both Passes on to my iPhone, as she doesn’t use a mobile device.My question is: Would my Pass still working as normal, after she left? Would I get into any problems, as I have two Passes on my device, but only one person travel, after she left?
Newbie question regarding flexibility of Global Interrail pass (X days / Month)
HiAfter retirement, I plan a global pass for a couple of days (in a month) around the end of this summer. Although I’m an experienced train traveller, a couple of things are still unclear for me regarding Interrail. My first question is if there is something like “Zugbindung” (like you have with traditional German “Sparpreis” tickets). In other words, if I plan for example for my first day a trip from my home city in the Netherlands to Munich and a train starting at, for example 8:00, would I be allowed to decide on this first morning to take a train earlier or later? And would I be flexible regarding the route, so instead of via Hannover to take a train via Frankfurt? Or do I have to take exactly those train(s) that I selected (“Zugbindung”) when I created the trip for that first day? My second question is how flexible I am regarding creating trips. Do I have to plan every trip (and thus every day and train) before I start using the Interrail pass? Or can it be that I enter only the
What compensations is there from SNCF for trip that terminated before final destination due to vandalism on the the line?
We were on the 12th April Paris-Hendaye train that got terminated at Bordeaux due to vandalism further down the line. We were travelling on a first class eurail pass so consumed one travel day on it plus the additional first class reservation charges. Are we entitled to any compensation for the bus tickets we had to buy to complete our journey to San Sebastian and the approximate 7 hour delay to our arrival as a result?Most of the information I can find relates to trains that are either cancelled entirely or delayed, but not to trains that commence the journey but fail to complete it.

Travelling extensively within countries
Hi everyone. EuroRail rookie here. Just wanting to confirm the facts Ive read already from various blogs. We are travelling on a 1st class global pass for 2 months to about 11 countries (Germany, Austria, Czech, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland) I would like to ask if travelling within the same country (ie Switzerland or Hungary) is included in our global pass? I know it may not be include travel WITHIN a city (ie metro trains, trams, metro buses), but does it cover travel from city to city? Does this also include buses from city to city? Are any of the above 11 countries preclude this? Thanking everyone in advance. Kind regardsYoungCoupleOZNZ
From Switzerland to Milano
I made a seatreservation from Basel to Chiasso. This train, the EC151, goes to Milan. That's the city where We have to go. But a reservation from Chiasso to Milan is impossible when ik look at the trainorganisations ÖBB, DB and NS international. How do I solve this problem? It's the same train so We can stay in the train. Or what can We do?The day of travelling is 27th of July.
