    Hi Eugene,

    Connections from Paris to Bruges involve changing trains once in Brussels along the way. Trains from Paris to Brussels are high-speed Thalys trains that require reservations as a supplement to a rail pass. However, trains from Brussels to Bruges do not even accept reservations, so your Eurail Global Pass is all you would need to board.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Paris to Brussels by doing a search just for this segment of the route on our homepage (, checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’).

    For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage ( just to view schedules for the non-reservable trains from Brussels to Bruges. Generally, when you're just trying to access schedules for non-reservable trains, you would have to be sure to leave the 'I have a rail pass' button unchecked. Also, for 'Bruges' to be recognized by our website, you would actually have to type it as 'Brugge'.
