I bought the global Eurail pass. It’s the Mobile version. I knew some trains required reservations (didn’t realize nearly all do). I’m uncertain how to book these and don’t want to pay more than I need to. I can see my pass and I have “my journey” saved. There’s a button on the top right of each leg I can click to turn on. I’m not sure what exactly this is though as it doesn’t buy a ticket or reserve a seat, so what’s the purpose? I also am seeing different times/routes on different sights. For example, I saw a London to Amsterdam on May 2nd at 11am on one site, but can’t find it on the Eurail App. I’m not sure if there’s different trains or what? I also notice there is 1st comfort and 1st class premium? I also see some tickets they mail to you?? If seats are selling out, I’d like to buy them in advance (do have 1 overnight train). However, I was also hoping to be as flexible as possible. For example, if I wanted to leave somewhere a day or two early to explore somewhere else. If I buy all these tickets in advance it’s my understanding there are no refunds or changes? Traveling to about a dozen countries over 3 months (May, June and July). So I guess my questions are as follows:
1-are reservations refundable or changeable?
2-easiest way to book reservations having a global pass, Eurail App, and wanting the most convenient access to tickets,
3-Are there different providers I can take from say London to Amsterdam and how do I find all the ones available to me with my pass?
4-Having selected the mobile version, will some tickets still need to be snail mailed to me and if so how long does that take?
