Trip: Paris to Basel - question on 10 minute transfer time at Strasbourg

Hi,

I am planning to purchase tickets from Paris to Basel in April.

There is a 10 min transfer time at Strasbourg. I would be having 2 suitcases and travelling with a child so the transfer time of 10 minutes may not be sufficient for me.

Can the same ticket (Strasbourg to Basel) be used for the next connecting train?

    I have bought the tickets from Raileurope to travel from Paris to Basel.

    I will have a look at the Paris Pass and Visite pass too.
