We plan to be in France, Switzerland and Italy for about 16 days and are planning to but the 15days global eurail pass. I tried to find information about the validity of this pass on various routes and have following questions. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
1. International high speed trains - Is it true that I just pay the reservation fee? How cheap is the resrvation fee compared to full price fee- Are there only limited seats for pass holders and if I dont get it, do I have to pay full price? For example, TGV from Paris to Geneva and Thalys from Rome to Paris
2. For travel inside switzerland, we plan to go from Geneva to Interlaken, interlaken to jungfoujouh and back, interlaken to Lucern, Lucern to Chur, Chur to Tirano on Bernina express - Do I get to travel for free on RE, R, IC, IR trains if I have the pass? Do I just hop-on and hop-off
3. For italy tavel, we plan to go from Tirano to Venice to Rome - Will this all be covered by the pass?
