All about reservations

Reserve your seats through the Self-Service:


Our Self-Service lets you make reservations for many trains in Europe. E-ticket reservations can be booked up to 3 hours before the train's departure. 


Paper ticket reservations have to be booked at least 6 days before the train's departure


When a train can't be booked through our self-service, you can find alternative ways to book your reservations here.




About reservation fees

A train reservation consists of two different fees - a train reservation fee and a booking fee. We'll explain both fees below:


  • The train reservation fee. Prices vary depending on the train. See the full list of train reservation fees.
  • The booking fee. When you book through our Self-Service this is 2 euros per traveller, per train.
  • For reservations that are only offered as a physical (paper) ticket there is also a shipping fee. This fee is €9 per order (registered mail).


Example: These are the costs for a 1st class reservation for 2 travellers on the Thalys high-speed train from Paris to Amsterdam: 2x € 2 booking fee + 2 x € 35 train reservation fee.



Booking a seat directly from carriers with a mobile Pass

To reserve your seat directly from our member railways, you will need to request a Pass cover number (as your mobile Pass doesn’t have one). Please get in touch with customer service via the link below so they can generate one for you.


Once you have your Pass cover number, there are two ways to secure a seat: directly from our carriers at railway stations across Europe or online from their respective websites.  


Final note: 33 European railways make your Interrail trip possible and they use different booking systems. Therefore, you won't always be asked for your Pass cover number (but it's always best to have one).
