    Hi LaDonna,

    Since you'll be taking the Eurostar from London to Paris and also doing a roundtrip between Paris and Marseille, the Eurail France Pass would be the best option for you.

    For the Eurail France Pass, you would click here:

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase any reservations by clicking the 'Seat Reservations' tab on our homepage (, entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a 'Eurail France Pass').

    London to Paris

    As of just this year, any Eurail Pass that includes France is valid to cover the Eurostar trains from London to Paris. The Eurostar will just require reservations as a supplement to the pass. The Eurostar can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that these reservations be purchased as soon as possible. Generally, the Eurostar can be reserved 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.

    Paris to Marseille

    From Paris to Marseille, you would take a high-speed TGV train. These trains will also require reservations as a supplement to the rail pass. Generally, trains in France can only be reserved once within 90 days of an intended departure date.
