    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Andrew,<br /><br />Yes, reservations can be purchased at train stations. However, you'll want to keep in mind that overnight trains can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, the night train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow">Zurich</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow">Vienna</a> opens up for reservations once within 90 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Also, if you'll be spending any time in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/zurich" rel="nofollow">Zurich</a>, you can shop various city passes and tours offered by clicking here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-577" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-577">http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-577</a>.<br /><br />For time in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/vienna" rel="nofollow">Vienna</a>, you can shop city passes and tours here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-454" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-454">http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/activities/?countries=undefined&amp;cities=cities-454</a>..

    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Susan,<br /><br /><a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/paris/index.html" rel="nofollow">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/index.html" rel="nofollow">Avignon</a> can sell out quickly, so you would want to purchase your reservations as soon as possible. However, passholder reservations for these trains are only able to be issued as paper documents that would have to be shipped to you. Delivery to an address in Europe is now able to be arranged for orders placed through our website.<br /><br />Any order placed on our website can take 24 to 48 hours to be processed in addition to the time it takes to ship the documents, which would be an additional 3 to 5 business days to an address in Europe.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling. Our website has two different entries for <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/index.html">Avignon</a>: 'Avignon TGV' and just 'Avignon'. 'Avignon TGV' refers to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/train-station/tgv-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/train-station/tgv-train-station.html">Avignon TGV station</a>, and 'Avignon' refers to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/train-station/centre-train-station.html" rel="nofollow">Avignon Centre station</a>. Most direct trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/paris/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/paris/index.html">Paris</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/index.html" rel="nofollow">Avignon</a> arrive into the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/train-station/tgv-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/france/avignon/train-station/tgv-train-station.html">TGV station</a>, so you would want to type 'Avignon TGV' in the field for the arrival city when entering your search (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/paris-to-avignon-TGV.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/paris-to-avignon-TGV.html">'Paris' to 'Avignon TGV'</a>)..
