A single Global Pass Holder Travelling with Group Pass Holders

Hi, I'm planning on going to Europe with four of my friends. I was a little late to joining the trip, so they have already purchased a group Eurorail Global pass for the 4 of them together. I would like to book train reservations with them as a group of 5 so all of us can sit near each other, etc. My question is: if I buy a Eurorail Global Pass for myself now, can I still book reservations with them as a group of 5 and travel with them, even though I would have my own Eurorail pass and the 4 of them would have a separate pass? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Since your friends have already purchased their pass and made their reservations, it is more than likely that you would be reserved apart from them when you go to make your reservations on our website. However, if you call us at 1-800-622-8600 to make your reservations, we can attempt to seat you near your friends. When you call, you would just provide us with the booking number for their order and/or the actual seat numbers they were assigned for each train. Please note that there is no guarantee we will be able to reserve you with your friends.

    It is not possible to make specific seat requests for orders placed through our website.

    The fact that your friends booked a pass separate from the one you will be purchasing will have no bearing on whether or not you will be reserved together. To ensure seats together for a party of travelers, you would just request your actual reservations within the same order. Since your friends' seats have already been reserved, please call us, and we can see if we can book you near them. Otherwise, if you wish, you can request to change seats with other passengers once on board the train or perhaps at the station prior to boarding.

    Great. Thank you for the reply. My friends actually have not yet booked their reservations, so we will go ahead and book Global Pass reservations together as a group of 5 through the raileurope website so we can be seated together. Thanks again!

    Perfect. In that case, definitely book your reservations together all within the same order. Let us know if you have any additional questions.
