No option to book seat reservations in France

I am travelling from Lucerne to Paris in late august and it requires for me to book seat reservations. However when I try to book them like I have my other reservations, it gives me no option to add to my cart. Please help! My pass is connected through the app and I have had no other issues with booking others that are essential to have.

Booking for the summer opens tomorrow for French trains.

Additionally, Interrail still only sell the €20 reservation and not the €10 ones for French domestic trains.

Therefore, it's probably cheaper to book here:

Or call SNCF, press #85 for English, no booking fees, reservations are sent by email.

Lovely thank you! this has also come up with a couple of other European countries so could it be the same that they haven’t released their summer reservations yet? i tried to book for Berlin and it gave me no available option.

Eurostar and DB have opened bookings for the summer quite some time ago.

For Eurostar, look here:

For DB don't use the expensive reservations from Interrail but look here:

(Use "Seat only”)
