Thanks for your help in advance! Am planning to visit Paris and Strasbourg in October.
Anyhow, would like to ask
1. Are there any reservation fees incurred for Eurostar from London to Paris? I checked that if i book way in advance I can get a ticket at 39 pounds. Any additional charges e.g. for reservation?
2. Are there any reservation fees incurred for TGV from Paris to Strasbourg? The tickets are around 25-30 EUR.
I believe for both train rides I need to purchase in advance (and make reservations in advance? Are they the same thing haha).
Some websites seem to claim that there are large reservation fees to be incurred in Europe and hence a Eurail pass would be more affordable e.g. nomadicmatt.com/travel-blogs/… I'm not quite sure though. Ive mapped my route from London to Vienna (which includes Paris, Strasbourg, Munich, Salzburg) and it doesnt seem to cost more than $300.
Thanks very much! :)
