How to make seat reservations on the Interrail website?

First you need to create an account. Please go to this page:, on the question ‘Do you have an Interrail Pass?’, select Yes. For the following question ‘Do you have an account?’, select Yes, I have an account.

Then, the system will ask you to fill in your account details. You can then fill in the email address you used while registering for DiscoverEU – that’s also the email address we used to create a ‘ghost account’ for you. Then, click on the link ‘Forgotten password’, this way you can set a password and activate your account.

Once you have logged in Click on “My itinerary", where you can create an overview of all trains you wish to take. You can search for trains by clicking on "New trip".

If you want to add travellers that also have a DiscoverEU Pass/Interrail Pass bought on our website, the issuer number on their Pass is CIV 9901. Please note that there should be no need to fill in their details, as these are already in our system. You need to click on 'Add' and then choose 'Yes (select a companion)'

After you have created the overview with all the trains you are planning to take, click on "Add to cart" and fill in the travellers and seating options for each train you wish to make a reservation for.

When you are done, click on "Submit Reservations" on the bottom of the page or above your itinerary. That will send the request to us. Please allow us some time to process your order; you will receive an update email once the trains are reserved.
