making a reservation after buying the rail pass

I"ve just bought the pass, now how do I make the specific reservations? Is it true that I can't make any reservations until I get the pass validated at a station?

    Hi JoAnn,

    Rest assured, you can purchase reservations before getting your rail pass validated. In fact, many trains can sell out, so it is recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible before leaving for Europe. Most reservable trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

    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.
