Night Trains

Interrail Night Trains

Interrail allows you travel freely throughout Europe. However, some trains require an additional reservation. In general all Suburban Trains and all Regional Trains do not require any additional reservation. As a result you can just board the train and sit wherever you prefer. Unfortunately, for High-Speed Trains an additional reservation is almost always required.

For Night Trains a so called sleeping supplement is required. With this you are always sure of your own spot during the night. So that you can relax or sleep. Therefore when you have an Interrail pass it is required to purchase these supplements. Most importantly, as far in advance as possible. Because these trains can become full!

Now when trains are full, there are usually plenty of other options available. But sometimes a particular connection is simply more convenient. Do not forget to bring all your requirements for the night. Such as a sleeping mask, earpluggs and travel pillow. With the rocking motion of the train, you’re bound to have an amazing night of sleep.

Below you can find a page per Interrail country. Each with an extremely detailed list of all valid Night Trains. Firstly, whether they require the purchase of an additional supplement. Secondly, whether you can purchase it in advance. And lastly what the costs will be.
