Deciphering the reservation/ supplemental charges for trains on a global pass

If you buy a global pass and look up a train on a site such as sub.ch and you find a ticket that has a leg of the journey requiring an reservation but it says that the fee is included in the ticket price how are you able to find out 1.) how much this reservation fee is, and 2.) how to make this reservation prior to arrival at the station?

    Hi John,

    You can check reservation costs and purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. If reservation costs display for a particular search under 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass', then we would recommend purchasing reservation for that train.

    Otherwise, please let us know if you have questions regarding whether or not reservations are required for a specific route.

    Rail Europe is the North American ticket consolidator for the various national rail networks of Europe, and reservations for most trains, as well as all rail passes, are physical documents that we would have to ship to you.

    Also, most trains in Europe are able to be reserved within 60 or 90 days of an intended date of departure. Many trains can sell out quickly, so we do recommend purchasing your reservations in advance, prior to departing for Europe.

    Any order placed on our website takes 24 to 48 business hours to be processed in addition to the time it takes to ship the documents; an additional 2 to 3 business days to be shipped if the option of standard delivery is chosen or an additional 1 business day if the option of express delivery is chosen.
