Can I reserve 2nd class seats on a TGV if I have a 1st Class Eurail Global Pass?

If I have a Eurail Global 1st class pass and want to make a reservation on a TGV train in France. They offer 3 classes of seating "economy", "comfort" and "premium". Can I make a reservation for the "economy" seating with the 1st class pass?

    Thank you for your question, Steven.

    Yes, you would be able to travel in 2nd class ('Economy') with a 1st class rail pass. Conversely, you would not be able to travel in 1st class ('Comfort') with a 2nd class rail pass.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage, entering a route, and indicating that you'll be traveling with a 'Eurail Global Pass' when you're prompted to enter the type of pass you'll have.

    Generally, TGV trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. Due to high demand, especially during the busy Spring and Summer travel seasons, TGV trains can sell out quickly. Therefore, it would be recommended that reservations be purchased as soon as possible.
