I’m holding Global Eurail Pass - 1st class, could you please suggest how to make seat reservation on Eurostar ? Here is my first time purchase e-ticket, so please help guide me how to do it


I plan to travel from Paris to London on 30Dec, departure time around 8 am. I don’t know how to book seat only ? Which website ? And how to do it ? 

As previous mentioned, I’m holding 1st class ticket for my global pass as well, can I know that the seat that I have to make a reservation is for 1st class or seat reservation cannot specific with class ? 

Thank you

There is a limited number of pass holder seats on the Eurostar and on popular departures and during high season those sell out weeks, and sometimes months in advance.

The best place to see the availability of passholder seats and make reservations on the Eurostar is

Press "later trains" and eventually you will find the next available connection. 


If you have a mobile pass you need to generate a Pass Cover Number in order to make the reservation at b-europe. You do that here in the PCN generator:

Eurostar seats are 30€ in 2nd class and 38€ in 1st class. They can be booked online via Eurail (booking fee 2€ per person and train) and via B-Europe (booking fee 4€ per order):

You'll need a pass cover number; for a mobile pass, you can generate it here:

There are no pass holder seats available on the 30th of December between Paris and London. There are 1st class pass holder seats available on the 31st of December.

There is availability on 30 Dec from Lille Europe - London


You would have to take a separate train from Paris to Lille, search and book this here

Make sure to leave enough time for Eurostar check-in at Lille Europe as well as 15mns to get from Lille Flandres if your chosen train from Paris stops there.
