Hey,

 

I discovered by accident that there is a price difference for a seat reservation with interrail!

Via a website of B europe (photo) you will find prices of 10 euros for a connection with 2 TGV for example Lille - Marseille or Lille - Bordeaux!

This is always with a change in Paris.

The interrail website charges 20 euros for this! Both without the mandatory reservation costs.

 

Could this be an error on the B europe website? Otherwise this is very interesting.

Yes, this is certainly interesting.

If now also the reservation costs go to 2 euros at B europe, then it would just be top! Then it was just half the price compared to the interrail website!

Interesting indeed. It still works. I wonder if it also works that way if you book at the ticket office or via phone, where there is no service charge...
