Eurostar Booking but no seat reservation

We’ve bought interrail tickets and I’ve just bought a Eurostar ticket for August and received the E-ticket. However it doesn’t tell us where we’re sitting and didn’t ask us where we wanted to sit.


Should I have seat numbers? Is it because it’s so far in advance?


I’m hoping we’re together as we have a young-ish child!


Also we have some friends who want to book separately and want to try to book seats near us.


Postscript - I’ve just received a separate email saying I need to validate the tickets with Eurostar to get the seat numbers. Keeping this post up in case it helps others...

This is quite weird. Remember that the pass is your ticket, you probably mean passholder seat reservations?

Where did you book those? You should receive minutes later an email with a PDF mentioning seat numbers and everything. You can't choose them.

In any case for Eurostar services to/from London it's easy to change seats : go to under manage my booking and you'll have access to a seat map.

Seems strange. Where did you buy the reservation? How much did you pay?
