I have a Eurail Global pass and have tried to make reservations on the TGV from Luxembourg to Paris for a trip in July on Raileurope.com, but they don't list any trains that are available for me. How do I go about making the reservation? Is there any other websites you can go to to make reservations, or a number I have to call directly? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
Your pass gives you 1st Class seats, although reservations are compulsory, there is no need to make them this far in advance. In July we had the entire 1st class car to ourselves. In fact we had a compartment. We made our seat reservations 1 day before departure.
Bear in mind the majority of the Europeans travel 2nd class. We were traveling for 8 weeks and only once was the 1st calls full. That was from Zurich to Salzburg.
Here is the site for Die Bahn which gives you the timetable. I noticed there are direct train from Luxembourg to (3-1/2 hrs) Paris EST.
Hope this helps.
Thank you! That was very helpful. If anything else comes up, I'll be sure to ask.
