Where do I upgrade to sleepers ?

I have just bought my global pass for 22 days around Europe and wondered where I book the sleeper carriages?

I have found all the train times, but no idea where I book them, if anyone can help I would be much appreciated.

The sleepers, both couchettes and sleeping car, can be reserved in the train station wherever you are on your trip. I believe that some routes are pretty popular, so booking as far in advance as possible is adviseable.

I've interrailed twice in the summer and found no problem with booking; even on the day of travel. Last year I bought a couchette place, on the train from Bordeaux to Lyon, from the conductor (Monsieur controlleur). Cost: 17 Euros.

I'm also taking a 22 day trip in July - taking in places in Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Rep, Italy and Provence.

Bonne vacance.

thanks, if I want to book the reservations in advance where do I do that? is there somewhere on the internet?
I just want to get it all sorted before I go.

I don't know from where you are, but in Holland you can go to a station and ask to make reservations.

yes... you can do it at a station or if it is not possible you can do it as well online: https://rail.shop/interrail
