Is a reservation compulsory when I travel with an Interrail or Eurail pass?

  • Reserving a seat is compulsory on some trains but not on others. Check the Journey Planner in the NS International app or the booking page on for details. Reserving a seat is recommended, especially during the busy summer months.
  • If you have an Interrail or Eurail Pass and want to travel by Eurostar to Belgium/France, Eurostar to London, TGV or ÖBB Nightjet, you can buy a special ticket for pass holders at a reduced price. This ticket includes a seat reservation.
    • Please note: The number of seats for pass holders is limited, so be sure to make your reservation well in advance.
      • There is no special Interrail or Eurail fare available on Eurostar Sun or Eurostar Snow. 
  • For more information and making a maximum of 2 reservations, go to an NS International desk in a Service & Tickets shop or call Customer Service on +31 30 2300023.
  • You can make additional reservations while travelling.
