  • Hello Ann,
    You are right, you need to book a sleeper in addition to your pass.
    Just go to this page: http://www.raileurope.com/us/rail/poi...
    Enter the name of your pass, your itinerary and the passengers information.
    On the next screen you will get the reservation fares and schedules.
    Have a great trip!

    Ann,

    The class of service for sleeping compartments on night trains is generally determined by how many people a particular compartment sleeps. Single and double compartments are generally considered 1st class, while triple compartments, 4 passenger couchettes and 6 passenger couchettes are generally considered 2nd class accommodations. Therefore, if you wish to reserve one compartment for as many as 3, 4 or 6 passengers, then you would just have to expect that it would be considered 2nd class. In that sense, you can often just disregard class of service on night trains.

    To view the type of sleeping compartment on a night train, you would click 'Select' listed with the fares when you pull up the results of your search on our website for a particular night train.

    Since you will be traveling with a 1st class rail pass, you can reserve any available compartment on this train, be it 1st class compartments or 2nd class compartments.

    Generally, these particular night trains can be booked 180 days in advance of a departure date. Accommmodations on night trains can sell out quickly, so I would just recommend booking your reservations as soon as possible.
