I recently bought my 2nd class Eurail pass and am planning a trip to Edinburgh from Cologne on the 18th of April. I have a few connections and my train from Bruxelles Midi to London St Pancras requires a seat reservation, as well as my train from London St Pancras to Edinburgh. However, I have been unable to make a reservation for either.
For London to Edinburgh, it tells me that I must book at a major train station. So does this mean I need no reservation ahead of time, and can make it in the station before I board my train?
For Bruxelles to London, it says I can book at the station or through Deutsche Bahn or CD. I have tried both websites and Deutsche Bahn says it is impossible to make a reservation, and CD won’t allow me either. I even tried the Thalys website, and the train I would be taking was not present on their website. I also tried on OBB and it said “a technical error occurred” in the space where it would show the fare. I couldn’t even do it on the Eurail website, as when I tried to load seat reservations they wouldn’t load in.
Would anyone be able to tell me if I can wait until I am at the station to make my seat reservation for London to Edinburgh? And, how to make my reservation from Bruxelles to London, or if I can also wait until I am at the station without risk of not getting a seat?
If you need anymore information please let me know. Thank you!
