  1. Hi if you are useing a Railpass there will be the point that a train needs a Reservation :) Many of you ask where to get a reservation for a specific train.

    There are several ways reserve a seat :)
    A. on the Website of the Traincompany that operate the train.

    B. at the trainstation (On major stations you have “International ticket desks” they often can reserve even trains in a different country for example you can reserve your TGV from Munich to Paris already in Vienna or Bratislava :) )

    C. Via the Railplanner app of  Eurail itself :)  a small service fee will be charged

    D. Via the booking Callcenter of a traincompany.

    E. Via a Reservation service website or a well experienced Railagency :)
