I bought a seniors Eurail pass and now realise I can’t use the pass to book the Eurostar to London from Paris as they don’t have a Seniors fare. What do I do? Do I get a refund on the pass and buy an Adult pass or somehow pay the difference in the fares on the Eurostar. I wish I had known I couldn’t travel in and out of London on the Seniors pass before I bought it!

Don't worry, you haven't done anything wrong.

The pass is your ticket, you need a seat reservation on top of it for Eurostar.

The reservation fee is the same whether you're a child, youth, adult or senior : 30€ between London and Paris (38€ 1st class).

You should book through Rail Europe to avoid fees (desktop version, click on add railpass) : https://www.raileurope.com/en

Feel free to ask further questions.

Oh great thank you for the advice
