Seat Reservation(s)

 Seat Reservations….a popular topic.  Have already downloaded the the tickets...have my pass.  Now, I need to make seat reservations for 3 of 5 legs.  Eurail app is not possible to book seats.  Eurail website is useless….in timeout when I try to advance forward on the webpage.  Have high speed internet and 9-10 devices working just fine.  Its not my internet provider its the website.  The cute YouTube video on how to make seat reservations also useless.


Any suggestions?

What is the route, date and departure time ? There could be multiple reasons : train sold out, train unavailable to book on,…

Btw it's always best to avoid to book seat reservations because they add a 2$ booking fee per person per train. General advice :

Really give us more info and we'll be happy to help you

And btw what do you mean by downloaded the tickets ? If you've bought regular tickets, then you don't need a pass

For Eurostar (and Thalys) check availability here :

You can also book it using the above link : 4€ booking fee per order (no matter the number of trains or people), compared to the 2€ per person per train on

As you can see there are 30€ seat reservations available. Book ASAP though, they can sell out weeks in advance

Brussels - Bruges : no reservation possible on all trains in Belgium or the Netherlands (except Thalys which should be avoided). Before boarding simply add the train you'd like to take to the app and find a free seat :)
