Average cost of reservations for TGV trains in France with Eurail France Pass

I'm researching Eurail France passes for a group trip in May (I've travelled via train in France extensively, but never with a Eurail pass). We're planning on making a Paris-Lyon-Toulon-Marseille-Paris loop and an Avignon day trip from Marseille (five travel days) I'm just curious what the average reservation charge for a TGV runs, generally - as these might make purchasing individual tickets from the SNCF just as economical as the pass.

    Hi Katie,

    Due to an error, the Eurail France Pass is not yet listed as an option to select when checking passholder reservation costs on our website. Until the Eurail France Pass is added, you can just indicate that you'll be traveling with the Eurail Global Pass in order to get a price and purchase any reservations for trains in France. You would refer to our homepage (www.raileurope.com), click the 'Seat Reservations' tab, enter the route, and then indicate that you'll be traveling with a 'Eurail Global Pass' when prompted.

    Generally, trains in France can be reserved once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. Many TGV trains can sell out quickly, especially during the busy Spring and Summer travel seasons, so it would be recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible.

    I'm sorry, as we are not able to provide or verify costs on this forum.
