    Hello,

    A rail pass covers the ticket costs on trains between different cities in the country or countries included on the pass. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass, just as they would be factored into the cost of individual point-to-point tickets (therefore, a rail pass still often works out to be the most economical option for travelers taking multiple trains while in Europe that cover more substantial distances).

    Reservations are required on all high-speed trains, night trains, and many international routes. Generally, high-speed trains connect most of the larger cities and more popular destinations in western Europe. In France, most major cities are connected almost exclusively by high-speed trains. Therefore, it is likely that reservations will be required for many of your trips there.

    You can purchase the France Rail Pass by clicking here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket....

    After you add the pass to your shopping cart, you would click 'Continue Shopping' to add your reservations for any reservable trains and check reservation costs. On the next screen, you would then click 'Buy a Reservation' under where it says 'Reservations for Pass Holders' (if starting on the homepage, you would just click on 'Book a Reservation for Your Pass').

    Trains in France can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended date of departure happens to fall outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 90 days to get an idea of the reservation cost and view schedules for any particular route. Due to high demand, reservable trains in France can sell out very quickly, so I would recommend purchasing your reservations as soon as possible.

    The pass and the reservations are physical documents that we would ship to you, prior to your departure to Europe.

  • Thanks a lot. And I have one more question. I decided to test how to book the France Pass (Saver Seniors). I was very much surprised when did not find the name of my country - Russian Federation. Why? And so how to book the Pass? Thank you.

      Rail Europe is the North American ticket supplier for the various national rail networks of Europe. We are generally not able to sell to residents of countries outside of North America, due to local restrictions. Residents of countries outside of North America would have to book through affiliated agents in their respective country.

      If you are a resident of Russia, you would refer to the European Rail Europe site, www.raileurope.eu.
