    Thank you for your question, Cari.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would check reservation costs by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage, entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with when you're prompted.

    TGV trains do require reservations in addition to a rail pass. Many TGV trains can sell out quickly, so it would be recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, trains in France (including the TGV trains) can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter an earlier date, some time within the next 90 days, to get an idea of the reservation costs and view schedules when searching the route on our site in the meantime.

    To ensure that it is a 'Passholder' reservation fee that you're being quoted when you pull up the results of your search, you would click the 'View' button for the cost listed under your preferred class of service for your preferred departure. After you click the 'View' button, a box will expand out underneath. In this box, you would refer to the option(s) listed under where it says 'Ticket Flexibility' and click 'Read More'. When you click 'Read More', the name of the fare should display as something like 'TGV: French Day Train Passholder' or something similar. Generally, the Passholder fares for these trains would be the 'Semi Flexible' option under 'Ticket Flexibility'.
