Interrail: I don't get it ! So confused !
emsyjean @ 12-07-2008 11:20
We've got a monthly Interrail Global pass and want to make seat reservations PLUS a couple of overnight ones on the way.
I can't figure out how to do it! I've been to the link on the other post that covers this and when I fill in the trip etc... it comes up with 'error'... 😐
Here's the reservations and overnights I'm looking for... PLEASE HELP!
Venice to Vienna - Citynightline - 8.26pm - 8.30am - OVERNIGHT
Brussels to Berlin - Citynightline - 8.46pm - 8.22am - OVERNIGHT
Munich to Amsterdam - Citynightline - 10.42pm - 8.56am - OVERNIGHT
Berlin to Munich - Citynightline - 10.14 - 6.42am - OVERNIGHT
Paris - Barcelona - Trenhotel - 8.32pm - 8.24am - OVERNIGHT
PLUS the seat reservations from Rome to Florence and Florence to Venice...
It's stressing me out!!! 😲
Any tips or hints would be SOOOO appreciated!

here the solution for you !! 🙂
if it shows error an online reservation is not possible.
you have to do it then somewhere at a station on your tour.
the CNL (citynightline) reservations you can buy them all at once in Venice (the first place you will use CNL - or also already in Rome!)
if you want you can buy the reservations as well by phone - see the https://rail.shop/bahn website. 🙂
I hope this will help you ... sorry ... but the reservation system is really complicate. 😶
have fun on your tour, Peter 🙂

Thanks for your help! It seems like you do this whole think single handedly!! Well done!
Am I safe in thinking that I don;t have to book overnight trains until I get there in that case do you think??
I just don't want to be stuck somewhere!!
Have tried the link above and it said 'fares not available'...

You could do like me. When you arrive at a station, you book the tickets for the next train before you leave to find your hostel. In that way you will always be 2 or 3 days in advance.

Cannot you make these reservations in the place where you live?
Pete @ 13-07-2008 06:33
yes you often can - but better to do it in a big station - and it is not possible to buy the reservations in every country. 😶

Wish me luck! 🤣

Just a follow-up question: If making reservations for a couchette at the station, let's say for the CNL trains emsyjean listed, will I often find it's booked full if the train leaves in 1-2 days? How big a problem is that typically? I'm going in August.
Pete @ 14-07-2008 06:51
it depends on the day you travel ... Friday and Sunday night, the trains will be full when booking only 2 days in advance ... better to do it one week in advance... 🙂

I see, thanks! I don't like the thought of planning a whole week ahead, we'll see how it goes ;-)
