I read that taking reservations in France and especially in Spain (at the stations) ist very complicated and that reservation seats are very rare at the moment. I’m thinking about getting a global pass but of course, I can’t check if there are any reservation options left for my dates if I didn’t buy the pass yet.. (I’m going in August/September). Does anybody can give me some advice here?


Thank you!

Pass holder seats in the TGV France-Spain are limited. Pass holder seats in domestic trains in Spain can be booked until the train is full. The same for domestic TGVs in France (limited number of 10€ seats, then 20€ until the train is full).

These reservations are also available from SBB in Switzerland. The easiest for you could be to ask SBB at your nearest ticket office or via phone. For September in Spain though it's still early to book.
