  • Most trains are open seating and a seat reservaton is not mandatory. But your pass does not guarantee a seat on train. When you plan to travel long distances, or travel with families and groups that wish to be seated together, seat reservation is recommended.
  • Seat reservation are required for most high speed trains and highly recommended for trains such as ICE, EuroCity and InterCity trains.
  • As Friday and Sunday afternoons and evenings are peak travel periods for Europeans, you may consider to make a seat reservation.
  • All long distance trains in Spain, Romania and most in Norway and Sweden require seat reservations. While Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland don't need it.
  • When planning to use and overnight train, you have to make a reservation in advance for a sleeper or a couchette and pay a supplement. But if you just take a seat, it don't need to pay supplement.
    (Reservations should not be made until you are certain of your travel plans. Reservations can be confirmed up to 2 months in advance of the travel date.)
