Hi im looking at buying the 2 month global pass, ive planned my trip on the mobile app, and 13 trains say they require seat reservations. Are these all mandatory? Ive read that a few people had some issues trying to make reservations? As we are travelling with a baby I want to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible, so if you have any advice please let me know! :)
I would also like to purchase the pass soon and reserve all the seats etc as soon as possible to ensure we are ok and have seats also we need some beds on the night trains and im not sure how fast these book up. We aren't leaving until the 21st July, so if I purchase a pass tomorrow for example and add my pass to my app will it start from tomorrow or from my first trip on the 21st? July? How soon can I add the reservations, should I add them right away or should I wait until the day before?
Do you think a paper pass would be better than using the mobile app? If I had a paper pass, and we missed a train/delayed/no show etc, how would we book another train as don't you pre book all the routes before and print the passes? Or is literally a paper pass with like a barcode so we can just show it and book another train?
Apologies for all the questions I just want to make sure I fully understand how it all works!
Thanks in advance :)
