train travel in europe

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 travelling in December and January. I have just purchased a global pass for us as we are travelling to Germany, , Italy, France and spain.

Our itinerary is organised as I have booked accommodation in all of the cities we are staying at. Does anyone recommend that we pre-book the seats on the train for the days that we want to leave. I have been told that the seats need to be pre-booked well before departure.
Is it better to do this before we leave for our trip that way we don't have to worry about getting to the station too early to guarantee seats all together.

I have priced a pre-booked seat from Turin to Paris is $140.00AUD per person. Other destinations the price is about $20.00AUD per person.

Suggestions please.
Thanks in advance!
