Best Way to Get From Como to Tirano?
Hi Traveling Community,I am having a hard time finding the best way to get from Como to Tirano so that my family can take the Bernina Express this June. Does anyone have experience with this?

London to Paris Nord train seat reservation
Hi all, I’ll be travelling to Paris at 10th of Feb from London St Pancras. However, the app timing and web timing clashes and i couldn’t find a timing that is the same on both side since January. So I’ve waited for February which is today but it still don’t match. Now i’m not sure if I should book seats reservations from the website at 726am and produces no QR code (as i couldn’t find 726am timing in the app that generates a QR code) or should I book 701am in the app and go to the station to make a seat reservation? I’m not sure if i can reserve the seats last minute at St Pancras. Can someone please help me with the following? Should i book at website and produce no QR code in app Should i save the QR code in app and buy the seats reservation at St pancras Will the seats reservations confirmed be available for my time slot and if not what should i do?

I live in the UK. I have a global pass to start with Eurostar trip from London to Brussels in 2 weeks. I booked seat reservations through Interrail app. I want to change the date by two days. Can I do that without charge still using my first free trip leaving the UK? How do I do that?
NEW INTERRAIL USER
Hi I'm new to interrail & wonder if you can help. I bought a 2 month continuous pass last May & need to activate it by 11 April. So I've booked a flight to Munich on 10th & train to augsburg that day to visit friends. I've not reserved train yet & assume I can change it - is that correct? And can I also change journey completely as long as I activate it bt 11 April? Thanks in advance. Carole
Global Pass - Start day within 11 months ? + stop inbetween?
Hey, i purchased as many of us a ticket during the promo offer: a 2 months global pass with mobile pass.Now i have two questions, i found similar threads but I want to be really sure I get things right and dont mess anything up so my pass is not valid. I found similar threads but sometimes I didnt know if I got the answer right.. My pass is valid until 10th of April (activation period), so if I understand right, it doesnt mean I have to start my travel until 10th? I just have to activate it before, means i have to decide for a travel date, so i could also start for example End of April (unless i activated and chose the travel date before 10th April)? Its very important to know for me so I dont get things wrong, because I would ideally start a bit later in April if its possible. If i e.g. start my travel at 25th April and then i travel for 3 weeks. And then i come back to germany and end my first trip. Am I allowed to use the pass nevertheless later if I start not in my home country? As
Boarding at next station
I am travelling from Barcelona to Paris via TGV Inoui 9708. I have purchased the global pass and have made my seat reservations from Barcelona. However, i am planning to visit Girona as well. Can i board the train from Girona (which is the next station after barcelona) ? Does this cause any problems?
Lost Journeys in app
I added all my journeys into the app in My Trip a couple of weeks ago. When I went to check today all the journeys had disappeared? So frustrating and not sure how to retrieve them without adding them all again. Any ideas???Also when I look at the trains for Switzerland they are all coming up as “Not in Pass network”??? I have checked the app version and it updated 3 days ago. Does this mean I can no longer use the pass in Switzerland. Leaving in a few days and this is stressing me out.
What time of day does my Month pass expire?
My app says my validity period is "15 Dec 2022 - 14 Jan 2023" Does that that mean I have until the midnight of the 15th of Jan to use my pass? I just want to make sure because I plan on taking a train the day of the 14th and don't want to have pay for the train when I can plan around it.
Interrail or Eurail for UK citizens/residents
I married a Romanian woman two years ago, and we live in Edinburgh. Unlike the English, Scotland voted against Brexit. Now we would like to visit several cities in the EU and are uncertain about the rules. As a Romanian national, my wife is free to travel using Interrail. I am not. It seems I have to use EU rail.My questions are: Can we take the same train together, given that we are a couple resident in the UK.? Or do the rules require we both travel by the non-EU members’ mode of travel, using Eurail? We would appreciate any advice we can get to clarify our situation.I am 67 years old. My partner is 58.Can you help?Jack FullerEmail:j.xxxxxxxxxgmail.com (removed by moderator due to privacy matters)(Edinburgh, Scotland, UK)

Using Pass within own country without going to the border
So basically, I am a UK resident, and I managed to get a free 7 day pass with the scheme run by the EU. I have decided that I want to purchase an additional pass to get some more travel days, probably another 7 day pass.However, since I do a lot of rail travel within the UK, I have noticed that I can purchase a 10 day pass for about £60 more than the 7 day pass - since I will have 2 passes, and I am currently only using one outbound and one inbound journey on my pass, I will have an outbound and an inbound day of travel left over, so I was wondering if I could then use these two days to travel around the UK, most likely starting and ending these trips at the same station (which is most likely Reading or Oxford, which are arguably close to airports) but if necessary I could say use it on a very circuitous route from Reading to Heathrow and then purchase a ticket to get back to Reading Essentially, the question is does the outbound/inbound journey have to be a journey on the fastest rout
Copenhagen to Hamburg on 26 August
Hi, New to the forum, but have ‘done’ a couple of Interrail trips in the past couple of years. Am going to be travelling from Copenhagen to Hamburg and then onto Nuremberg on 26 August. As I understand, seat reservations are compulsory on the direct trains between Copenhagen and Hamburg in the summer months, and these are extremely popular with demand outstripping supply, so I’m keen to book the seats asap. I note seat reservations aren’t yet available on the DSB website. Bahn.de, however, is showing services for that day and is suggesting a change at Fredericia. The Interrail website says the same thing, adding that reservations are optional. Is this correct? I note looking at dates before 26 August trains are terminating at Hamburg Altona, so I’m wondering if there are engineering works that day that mean the direct trains cannot run? Thanks in advance for your help.
Unable to add required trip to the pass
Hello, We are in the middle of our trip but unable to generate tickets on the pass for our journey tomorrow morning. We’re a bit panicked and hope the forum can help. We have successfully generated four journey tickets already without any problems. We’re hoping the issue is because we are trying to generate the ticket the night before rather than just before the train. We could see the journey on the planner and it was saved to Mytrips but not being added on to our passes to show tickets. Any ideas from the forum as to why this is happening, would be very helpful as we don’t want to spend 85 euros to buy tickets to go from Tirano to Luzern tomorrow morning. We eagerly await your response. Many thanks, Rita & Shirley

Train from Nice to Milan
Hello, I’m wondering if it is possible to take the night train from Nice to Milan in the summer? Like around 22, 23 or 24 of july? And if not, is it possible to take a train that doesn’t take like 2 days to get in Milan? This summer will be the first I will be travelling by train, so I actually don’t know anything about travelling by train, so if somebody could help, that would be great :) Kind regards, Xiang van der Boon
Stuck in Copenhagen - train cancelled
Hi, me and my friend are currently travelling with an interrail ticket from Bremen to Malmo C. Due to the øresund bridge being closed we are stuck in Copenhagen until at least midnight. Does anyone know if we are entitled to compensation for the hotel room we booked in Malmö or the hotel room we will need to book for tonight in Copenhagen?
Inbound and Outbound journeys in other country
Hi everyone !! Does someone know if it is compulsory to use our outbound/inbound journey from/to our country of residence or can we use them as a classic travel day to go in another country that isn't our country of residence ?For example, I won the 7 days within 1 month pass and I live in france. So I used an outbound journey to start my trip. I used 5 classic travel days + 1 outbound (at the beginning) but i don't want to go back in France yet. Is it possible for me to use the last travel day not as an inbound journey to France but as a classic travel day to go in another country ? Thank you and have a nice day :))Jules
2 Passes on one device or separate devices
My 20 year old daughter and I will be travelling together. I have bought the passes on the same order but not sure if its best to have both passes on my phone to make bookings and reservations or we have our pass on our own devices, If I book them together on my device, does she also need to have the app on her phone? My understanding is she can have her pass on her phone, I can then add her to make the booking. Can I do this in the app or only on the website?? It’s so confusing!

But, will i be able to keep the QR code for the rest of my travel trip after activating at 9th to belgium and amsterdam as i’ve paid for reservations
Greek Island Pass 30% Discount
Hey all, I recently purchased the Eurail Greek Island pass for 4 travel days using the Blue Star ferries. I am confused about the 30% discount. Once I have used my 4 travel days and need to book additional ferry trips, does the 30% discount apply to any ferry company that operates in Greece? Or does it only apply to the Attica group ferries (Blue star, Hellenic seaways and Superfast ferries)?Thanks in advance for the help!
Is Berlin to Zurich via OBB Nightjet included in the Eurail pass?
Hi I’m trying to plan my itinerary for my upcoming Europe trip this July/August. I originally was planning to go from Berlin > Fussen > Zurich but since I cannot find an easy way to get to Fussen, I was considering just going straight to Switzerland instead. I was hoping I could get the train from Berlin > Zurich via the Nightjet, but was just wondering if this is included in the Eurail pass as I cannot see it on this Eurail Railway map: https://www.eurail.com/en/plan-your-trip/railway-mapAny help would be appreciated. Thank you. :)
