Doubt about reservations

zemigsan @ 11-06-2008 22:38

Well i'm still learning about the working way of interrail, but what i understood was that there was some trains that is compulsory the reservation (and you have reservation fee to pay) and others that you are not obliged.

My question is what happens if i step into a train that is full? Because it can not be full at the beggining of my trip, but then start to get crowded. I get expelled from the train? :P

hej ... in most of the trains you need a reservation you have to buy it then by the staff, when they check your ticket. it is often a bit more expensive then buying it at the station.
if the train is full, you have to leave the train at the next station.
my personal experience: in Northern Europe the staff is nice and you often can stay in the train (but not always!!). in Southern Europe you won't have it so easy - you will have to pay.
