Ratings and Reviews
This App Needs a Major Update
This is my first ever review for an app, however, I feel it is needed. This app needs an major update. It has has bugs left and right and is just not quick enough. Recently, I have been adding journeys to my unlimited pass and it would not show up on the ticket itself. This is a major issue if the train attendant thinks you don’t have a pass. The app needs a better and more efficient layout that will allow the pass to show up quicker. This makes when you have to pull the ticker up, much easier. It would also be very nice to see an integrated Apple Wallet feature. Whether or not it may be possible for the Wallet pass to update based on your journeys. It would be a feature that would be greatly appreciated. Also, for reserving seats, this absolutely needs to be integrated into the app where you can purchase them there. It is a hassle to purchase these tickets on the website. Also, there should be the ability to create multiple trips using one pass. That way you can organize trips much easier and don’t have to struggle to know which journey is which. I have been using this app for a couple of months now. It has been very useful and I have saved a lot of money. However, it really needs to be faster, more efficient, and more stable. With that being said, I hope that the suggestions are helpful and point a way towards improvement.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us very detailed feedback.
As the Rail Planner App works offline, so the timetable information is not always accurate, our Rail Planner App thus redirects customers to our website to purchase seat reservations.
In terms of creating multiple trips, only one trip can be connected to a mobile Pass and all your journeys need to be added to that trip.
However, we are continuously working hard to maintain our App and improve our features to ensure that it is up to date and user-friendly.

Worked well enough
I used a 4 day pass in the UK, Netherlands, and Germany and it worked well enough, especially when I had to string together regional trains. Aside from it sending me notifications about disruptions affecting the other side of Europe from where I was traveling (which it still does now despite my pass having expired), my only other issue that I ran into was the bike that I was traveling with. Where bike reservations are required, I found the best solution was just going into a ticket office and talking to an actual person. I could usually get one for the same day but it did require flexibility. I don’t think there’s an option to make a bike reservation in the app, but that seems more like an issue with the various train operators than eurail/interrail. I also didn’t have to get a seat reservation so I can’t speak to that side of things. All in all, I would get it again. I think that it pays for itself in the UK, on high speed trains, or any other expensive trains. I’d check prices between the operator and the pass first though.
Bad app, worse customer service
The only thing worse than this app is the company’s customer service. Several of my desired trips can’t be found on the app, so I have to add them manually. This fails every time, with the journey either never appearing or appearing for a short time before disappearing from my trip. This leaves me unable to travel with the passes I paid several thousand dollars for. I’ve contacted customer service three times over the past week and haven’t gotten a single reply, despite their claim that they aim to respond within 48 hours. This is unacceptable for travelers who have paid a lot of money for rail passes but can’t travel when the app won’t function properly. Also, many countries in Europe require you to make (and pay for) seat reservations for each leg of every journey in addition to having a rail pass. The app implies that reservations can be made through the app but once you click to make reservations for many countries, they tell you that these reservations can only be made in person at a train station, defeating the purpose of being able to just arrive at the station and hop on the train with your rail pass. I’ve heard it may be possible to get pass cover numbers from Eurail and then book reservations online but, again, customer service hasn’t responded to my inquiries. Terrible app when people are so highly dependent on it to function for their travel and even worse responsiveness to problems.
