Hello Wong,

Thanks for your question.

You would have to travel as follows:

- Paris Cdg to London St Pancras via Lille TGV and Eurostar train - This sector would be eligible for passholder fares with your Global Pass.

- London St Pancras to London Waterloo - You would have to book your travel locally - Not included in Global Pass.

- London Waterloo to Portsmouth Harbour – ATOC train - Point to point ticket not included in Global Pass.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "book a compulsory seat reservation when using your rail pass & then feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Hope this helps!!!
