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

Eurail Mobile Pass Validity
I will be purchasing a Eurail Mobile Pass to explore Eastern/Central Europe. After enjoying Salzburg, can I use my Eurail Mobile Pass to book travel from Salzburg to Munich? And then ultimately back to Salzburg? Or do I need to book an individual ticket? Not sure if this border town route is included in the Eurail Mobile Pass (both to and from.) Thank you for taking the time….
Florence to Pisa
I’m planning on adding a stop to Pisa but using alternative transport instead of the interrail pass so it doesn’t use up one of my travel days. I want a one way ticket to Pisa from Florence. I’ve looked into flix bus but the pick up stop is very far away from where I’ll be staying. Are there trains which will take me there instead and do these have to be booked in advance. thanks.
Simple question about starting from zero from the most clueless newbie possible
Wife wants to travel by train from Paris to London on Thursday, 20th of April. I go to the Eurail and other site’s pages, a train schedule she wants is available.When I try to buy a ticket, it says it wants either a Paper Pass number or some other type of information she does not have. What is the first step she must do to begin the process of buying a train ticket from Paris to London? Thank you in advance,Robert for Tania
Traveling with elderly parents that use mobility scooters
Hello everyone, my wife and I, along with my elderly parents will be traveling to Europe in late March - Early April arriving via a Cruise Ship. We plan on staying in Barcelona for 2 days and then taking the train up to Paris and staying there for 4 days. My question is can you take mobility scooters on the train from Barcelona to Paris? Also is it feasible to use the local metro to get around with the scooters as well? My parents are 91 and 87 respectively and walking any distance can be difficult for them. Thanks Jerry
Justification for additional reservation fee?
Dear all!It is unfortunate that there are extra costs for purchasing reservations generally - but that by itself is at least somewhat understandable. I honestly struggle though to understand why I am supposed to pay 2€ extra for each reservation I make through the internal portal. Whenever possible I change to the website of the national carrier: But that doesn't always even work, i.e. with Trenitalia or SNCF.Would someone here know why Interrail wants all of us to pay 2€ extra for every reservation made through their portal?
Travel day used unintentionally
Hi, I’ve sent an email to customer service but not sure if they reply quickly enough. Is there a contact number?I boarded my train for Bratislava from Krakow an hour ago which I have a separate train ticket for to my pass. But stupidly I also added it to my pass so I had the time schedule easily accessible but now it’s activated a day that I didn’t need - I immediately took this journey off my plan but it didn’t give me the day of travel back. I’m having a huge panic now that I won’t have enough days left for when I actually need them :( I’ve seen that a few people have had something similar happen and onlycustomer service can intervene. Does anyone have any other way of reaching them other that email. I have a severe anxiety and really wishing I had just wrote the time down on my hand instead. Feeling really stupid now. Thank you in advance!
Timetable information for Spain
Hello all, Can anybody suggest a reliable source for timetable information for Spain? I have been using RENFE, and not finding much to suit my schedule, and then I decided to try DB and RailEurope, and found many more options listed. RENFE does not seems to list connecting trains (eg Apr 24 Madrid-Granada only shows 3 AVE services, but DB/RE show additional connecting trains via Cordoba, yes, would need two reservations) and does not list local trains (eg Apr 29 El Chorro - Malaga) at all. Very happy to use DB as a source of timetable information if it’s reliable. Also, I saw a post that said that seat reservations for Spain could be done via DB. I haven’t found a way to do this, get reservation not possible message. Is this still possible? Not a major problem as I will have done to make reservations while in Spain. Thanks George

Two journeys in one day?
Is it possible to activate two journeys in one day?We are traveling in England and plan a long trip to London on the last day. There we want to take the Eurostar and use the Global Pass for the return trip home. Time is a bit short and, if we miss the last Eurostar, we don't want to lose the return trip to the home country.Therefore, the idea, we take a journey to London on one day and, if we get the Eurostar, then activate on the same day the journey to Germany.Does anyone have experience with this?
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?
Met de trein naar Gallicië
Wij hebben een huisje in de buurt van Tomiño en Tui, Galicië Spanje. We zijn steeds met het vliegtuig gereisd naar Porto en huurden daar een auto. De laatste keer hebben we met onze eigen auto gereisd en dat is ons ook goed bevallen. De consequentie is dat we wel op enkele dagen reistijd heen en terug moeten rekenen ca. 2x 2500 km. We onderzoeken nu de mogelijkheid om met de trein te reizen. We stuiten daarbij direct op enkele bezwaren. De vele keren overstappen met bagage (met name in Parijs); het lijkt erop dat je met de trein alleen via Barcelona kan reizen (dat is een behoorlijk omweg); geschikte steden om met te trein naar toe te reizen zijn voor ons Ourense, Vigo, Santiago de Compostella. Het gemakkelijkste zou dan zijn om via SAN Sebastián, Bilbao en/of Pamplona en Leon te reizen. Dat lijkt allemaal niet mogelijk volgens de planner. Kunt u ons adviseren over de meest efficiënte en praktische manier om zo dicht bij onze bestemming te komen. We zijn beiden senioren 60+ en het slep
