On which trains is reservation compulsory with the flexible fare Europe?

Reservations are compulsory on some international services. If so, the reservation will already be included free of charge in the ticket price. Reservations are required in the following trains:

  • High-speed trains (ICE and TGV) to France (Paris and Marseille)
  • Trains to Sweden
  • Trains to Italy
  • Trains to Poland

Please note that you cannot travel on trains requiring reservations without a reservation, even if you have already purchased a flexible fare ticket including a reservation for another train.

If you have already bought a flexible fare ticket without a reservation at the ticket counter, you must book the seat reservation separately. This costs EUR 4.90 in second class and EUR 5.90 in first class.
