how to book rail tickets using eurail pass


I purchased the France-Spain Rail Pass (6 days in 2 months). I have already booked 3 rail journeys and now I am ready to book the remainder of the rail journeys but there is no option for me to enter the railpass details. Can you kindly explain how I book rail tickets from the following destinations using my already paid railpass:

St Emilion, France to Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, Spain to Madrid, Spain

Madrid, Spain to Paris, France

I hope you can assist me with this request.

Hello Francesca,

Thanks for your question.

Your travel will be as follows -

- St Emilion to Bordeaux : You will have to book locally.

- Bordeaux to Barcelona via Narbonne – Corail Train and France-Spain High Speed Train

- Barcelona to MadridAVE Train

- Madrid to Paris via Barcelona – AVE Train France-Spain High Speed Train

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "Seat Reservations“ & 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.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!
