    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Alex, The '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-global-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Global Pass</a>' covers the ticket costs for all those trains, so I'm not sure where you'd be seeing that information. A rail pass covers the ticket costs for trains between different cities in the country or countries included on a pass. When applicable, reservations are a supplementary cost to a rail pass, and reservations are required on all <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains, including the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-international/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-international/how-to-book.html">Brussels-Provence TGV</a>' from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/brussels-to-marseille.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/brussels-to-marseille.html">Brussels to Marseille</a>. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), entering a route, and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with (i.e. a 'Eurail Global Pass'). Generally, these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. The 'passholder' rates (reservations) on these trains can sell out very quickly, so it is recommended that the reservations be purchased as soon as possible. The train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/brussels-to-marseille.html" rel="nofollow">Brussels to Marseille</a> is a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-international/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv-international/how-to-book.html">'Brussels-Provence' or 'Brussels-France' TGV</a>. The trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/paris-to-marseille.html" rel="nofollow">Paris to Marseille</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html">TGV</a> trains. The trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/marseille-to-lyon.html" rel="nofollow">Marseille to Lyon</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains. The trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/marseille-to-nice.html" rel="nofollow">Marseille to Nice</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/tgv/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> trains.

    Changed description to Hi, I'm considering buying a 2 month global pass, so I was looking at the train times. The booking engine said that Brussels to Marseille was not covered by the Eurail Global Pass. I figured this might be because it's TGV, but your website says there are a few seats available for Global Pass holders. Then I checked shorter trains: Paris to Marseille, Marseille to Lyon, Marseille to Nice. All of these said that the Global Pass did not cover the train. I figured these shorter, same country trips would be covered. Since I am 0 for 5 on finding trains covered by the Global pass, it looks like I'm not understanding how it works. Can you explain what the Global pass covers? I don't want to pay $1500 for a pass that doesn't get me on any trains.
