Hello! I am trying to book a Eurostar train and trains in France with sncb. The website does not let me book without a pass cover number. I have a mobile pass so I don’t have one. Can anyone please help me? The rail planner says I should go to a station and book but how can I do that if I am not in France/UK.

You can call  b-europe and make the reservation. No need of Pass Cover Number.

The phone call is rather expensive.


The best way to make reservations for French trains is to call SNCF. No need of Pass Cover Number.


 Press #85 for English, no booking fees, reservations are sent via e-mail


To get your Pass Cover Number, if you still will need it, you need to contact Customer Support through this form and ask for the Pass Cover Number.
