Does the train reservation need to match the class of my Eurail Global Pass?

I bought the Eurail Global Pass 1st class saver since I'm traveling with my brother. When making the train reservation for Thalys or TGV trains, does it need to be in the 1st class as well?

And how do I make reservations for these high speed trains?

Thank you very much.

    Hi Tiffany,

    Since your pass is for 1st class, you would be able to book your reservations in either 1st or 2nd class. In contrast, if you were traveling with a 2nd class rail pass, you would only be able to book your reservations in 2nd class.

    You would purchase your reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website,

    These trains can only be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 90 days to get an idea of cost and view schedules when searching a route on our website.
