I have a eurail pass but want to book a train ticket on 13 july 2016, how can i get my ticket fast?


I want to travel from CDG airport in france to Angouleme on 13 July 2016. I am currently in Melbourne and leave for Europe on 12 july. I would like to pre book my ticket so that I have my seat confirmed as this date is not flexible. Can you please confirm what my options are here, can I just print an e-ticket as I am worried about shipping times?

Hello Julie,

Thanks for the question.

We would like to inform you that the delivery days on the Australia website is within 5 business days. Hence if you purchase seat reservations today on the website you will receive it before your travel date. The only printing option for your sector is Paper Tickets which have to be shipped to your current residential address.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website

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!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
