I purchased a global rail pass after adding up my train costs and finding it to be cheaper with a pass. However, after buying the pass I went into the reservation area on raileurope.com and found that with reservations the tickets actually cost more than with global pass than without one. How cam that be? Am I looking at the information wrong?
Examples I can site are over night trains from Venice to Vienna and Barcelona to Paris. It's cheaper to not have a pass in these circumstances. Am I wrong?
