How can we book to sit together?

Hello,

My American friend is joining me in France for a holiday in October. Americans get half the holidays per year as Australians so we are doing one trip Paris->Lille together and I'm doing one extra Paris->Montpellier alone. This means it's probably better for only me to get a rail pass although my decision to get a railpass is borderline.

However, I can't see a way we can book 2 tickets one with a rail pass and one without and have the system issue tickets/reservations with us sitting together. How can this be done?

Also even if I chose not to get a rail pass I experimented with trying to buy a 2 tickets this morning and it asks for our names and dates of birth, but it won't let me edit one of the fields to say my friend is American, not Australian. Again, how can we possibly purchase tickets so we can sit together?

Regards,

Michael

Hello Michael,

Thanks for the reply.

You can purchase point to point ticket for your travel as you are travelling only few cities. You can book your travel as below :

- Paris to Montpellier - TGV trains. you can click on round trip button to get round trip journey.

- Paris to Lille - TGV trains.

As you are purchasing point to point ticket country of residence is not important as it wont be printed on the ticket. You need to add the name as per the passport. Hence you can purchase the ticket for your friend as well on Australia website together.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
