Eurail train reservations - help

Jump to last reply

Four of us are flying into Zurich and taking the train to Dijon. We have purchased the Eurail France-Switzerland pass. I have read everywhere that reservations are required for the particular TGV train we hope to take. The time between our scheduled arrival and the first available train departure from the train station is about an hour and a half. The next available train is early afternoon. Ideally, we would like to arrive in Dijon early rather than later, and of course we would prefer seating together. However, we have a few questions:
1) Will we presumably have enough time disembarking, getting luggage, etc. and making this train?
2) Is it better to make a reservation for the first train? Can it be changed for a later train in the early afternoon if we miss it? Does a Rail Protection Plan apply to this?
3) Are train reservations available after we land rather than prior to our trip?

Any input and suggestions are appreciated!
