Hi guys,

I want to make a seat reservation for a train from Marseille to Zurich on the date of July 29, 2023. I kept checking and checking, the system just do not allow me to make any seat reservation. It keeps showing that “Prices for this journey will start to be available 90 days before departure.”.

As of this moment, the local time of Marseile is Sunday, 30 April 2023. Theoractically, the system should allow ppl to do so.

Any suggestions?

There are no direct trains from Marseille to Zurich.


As you haven’t said what time you want…


The most regular route is two changes at Lyon Part Dieu and Geneva. Only the first leg Marseille - Lyon requires reservation.

You can book that train here right now for €10 per person + €4 booking fee.


You will need a pass cover number from here


There are one or two connections that use TGV Lyria services direct to Geneva from Marseille, avoid these as the reservation fee is very high.
