I have a eurorail global pass and wish to make reservations between cities. When I go into reservations and enter the details of the trip eg date, des

I am trying to reserve my seats on trains between cities. I have purchased and had delivered to my Australian address my Eurorail Global pass. When I go into the reservation section and enter the information, including the type of pass I have, the price that comes up indicates the fare price, not the reservation price. How do I make reservations only and pay only the surcharge?

Hello Henriette,

Thanks for your question.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "Seat Reservations“ tab on the homepage & 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!!!

I have had a similar problem - when I enter Eurail Global Pass as the pass type, I get a "No schedules matched your request" message but if I leave the pass type blank, it offers me the trains that I want but at a cost

Help !

I have had the same problem. Doesn't the Eurail pass cover the cost of the fare even without a reservation? I get that there is no reservation possible on all train lines, but does that mean I have to pay for a fare? Or can I present my pass at the train station as payment/coverage of the fare?

Hello Leora,

I was trying to book a trip from Brussels to Brugge in Belgium, one way, for the 7th June 2016.

But I have since found out that because it is an intercity rail trip (and not over borders or TGV or Thalys or scenic route), it does not require reservation and that I can use my Eurail pass to present at the ticket office as payment of the fare. The Eurail pass has already "paid" that type of fare.

Is that all correct?

Thank you

Barbara

Hello Barbara,

Thanks for your reply.

With a Eurail Pass, Seat Reservations are included for Intercity or Domestic trains.

You can travel from Brussels to Brugge with a pass as they are intercity train services.

Hope this helps!!!

Hi, I'm having a similar problem. I know it's too early to make my reservations (for September) but I'm trying to research this now so I know what to do later. For example, if I were to try and reserve seats for Paris to Lucerne on Tuesday for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) on Tuesday 5th July (so within 3 months from today) the price of $504 comes up. This isn't just the seat reservation price, is it? How do I get a price just for the seat reservation not the ticket. Our Eurail pass is a 4 country pass including France and Switzerland.

Thank-you

Karen

Hello John,

Thanks for the question.

To purchase Eurail Global Pass click “Here”.

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.
