The German Rail Youth Pass is also available at a discounted rate for those who are eligible.
However, if your travel itinerary is flexible and you want to save money, we suggest that you make your seat reservations before your journey, or when you arrive in Europe.
This will allow you more flexibility in your travel plans, and you will save money on not having to secure any pre-journey reservations.
Making Reservations : Most regional trains (shorter trips) you can just walk on to the train with your rail pass and sit in any unreserved seat.
We do recommend checking into your local rail office the same day or a day before your journey to make sure you don't need a specific seat reservation.
If you are running late or making a tight transfer you can board your premier/speed train and make your reservation and supplement payment with the conductor providing that the train has available seating.
