Train Reservations

What is a train reservation?

Train reservations, also known as seat reservations, are at times required or recommended for holders of a rail pass or train ticket.

When a seat reservation or supplement is required, the cost is not included in the pass and varies depending on the country, type of train and date of purchase and travel. A train reservation can be made per person, per train for a nominal fee and is only valid for use on the specific train, date and time for which it was purchased.

Why choose Train Reservations?

Traveling with a rail pass? Some routes require that you reserve a seat so book now and arrive prepared.

Traveling in high-season? Please note that on some trains the number of seats for pass holders is limited so reserve your seats well in advance.

On a tight schedule? Have the peace of mind that you are guaranteed a seat on the train of your choice.
