Train reservations in Sweden
Reservations for domestic Swedish trains can be made at larger train stations, or at the website of the Swedish Railways (SJ).
Most trains in Sweden do not require a reservation, but there are some exceptions. Reservations are compulsory for SJ high speed trains and InterCity trains, as well as for beds in night trains. For local or regional trains it is not possible to reserve seats.
Making an online reservation
Go to the SJ website.
Enter the From and To destination and your desired departure date/time.
State the number of passengers and, in the section Customer cards, choose 'Pass 2 cl' (Eurail 2nd class) or 'Pass 1 cl' (Eurail 1st class) and click Continue.
Select a journey (fees are stated in Swedish kronas) and click 'Continue'.
Add preferences, like a seating preference or a laptop connection and 'Continue'.
Now you can pay securely with your credit card. The most suitable delivery methods for overseas customers are 'Home printed e-ticket' or 'Collect tickets' (from a SJ ticket machine at bigger stations in Sweden).
Following the same procedure, you can also make a reservation for a night train in Sweden. You can choose between a sleeping car with comfortable beds and a WC and shower, or a couchette with more basic comfort.
You can not make online reservations for international trains to or from Sweden. We advise you to contact the call center of the SJ for international reservations. From outside Sweden please dial +46 771-75 75 75. From within Sweden call 0771-75 75 75. You can also make reservations at the international ticket office at larger train stations.
