Eurail pass and night trains
Eurail pass holders only pay a supplement for the sleeping accomodation. Supplements can vary from € 3 for a reclining seat to €100 for a private sleeping cabin. See also the page reservation fees for night trains.
You can make a reservation in advance at a train station or through a travel agent. See also the page how to make a reservation. Tip: If the train isn't fully booked you can sometimes buy the supplement from the train staff.
Note: It is common practice in night trains that you hand over your Eurail pass and passport to the train staff in the evening. You get them back in the morning before you leave the train.
