If anyone can suggest what I could do with a 2nd class mobile pass to book seat reservations from London to Amsterdam it would be much appreciated as

I've been trying to book seat reservations from London to Amsterdam for july. I am able to pick the date I want the seat reservation and everything up to the payment bit. But when I enter my card details and press pay it keeps saying something went wrong please refresh page. I have tried multiple departing times aswell as a different station other than Amsterdam centraal.

Some possible issues I can think of:

-seat reservations fully booked

-booking seat reservations through interrail itself is difficult.

Yeah Interrail is a bit difficult to use... 2€ booking fee are also added per person per train so it's better to avoid it. There are often better ways, have a look through the forum and those links :

For Eurostar (and Thalys) you can better check availability and book it there (4€ booking fee per order) : https://www.b-europe.com/EN/Booking/Pass#TravelWish

It is possible that the train is sold out (but then you shouldn't have been able to go to the payment page), Eurostar can sell out weeks in advance (quota). There are always more seats to Brussels and you can then take the hourly reservation-free IC train when needed.
