Global pass and reservation fees

I am in Madrid with a global eurail pass. I am told I need to pay a 14 euro reservation fee for round trip to Toledo and reservation fees for other locations I want to travel. Does this sound legit? Frank

Very likely. Did you not read the terms and conditions of the pass?

Yes, but I was confused. When I activated the pass at the airport train station there was no additional fees to ride a train into town. I read in one of the books that some places will direct you to pay reservation fees when they aren't required. I just wanted to make sure that wasn't happening. I paid extra before I left the US for a night train from Granada to Barcelona. I just did't expect that other, more straight forward trips would require additional fees. As far I know, my trips will not be on high speed trains. Just need to be prepared if the three month global pass will continue adding additional costs to the trip.
