I have been trying to reserve my seat for a trip from Paris Nord to London- preferably Paddington, but happy with Waterloo as well. I don't understand how the seats are already booked up when the rule is that you can only book 3 hours before the train. It let me book my train ticket for Amsterdam to Paris, which is a week from now- so why can't I book this one?? It is saying that I might have to book through Eurostar directly - which will cost me 150 euros.... What is the point of this eurail pass if I can't use it for a very basic train trip?! I am just so confused about how this pass works, would appreciate any advice or explanation anyone has for me! Thank you so much.
