Hello, so I am trying to book a reservation from Nice to Paris on November 6. The eurail booking website doesn’t have any and when I go to the station, they said that they only have 1st class available for reservations, no second class. But when i check the SNCF booking website, the train is not sold out, there are still tickets there for sale. Does this just mean that the Eurail seats are sold out, like is there a maximum number of seats Eurail can reserve?

Yeah till yet SNCF had on International lines limited Eurail/Interrail seats it looks like it now happens even for domestic TGV´s :/

You could try to reserve via b-Europe but then with a 4€ Service fee :/ https://travel.b-europe.com/Eurail-GE/en/booking-tgv#TravelWish

Thank you! I see there is an available reservation, But i need a pass cover number, which they say is only on paper tickets. Does this mean since I am using a mobile pass I cannot get this reservation?

For the direct trains Nice - Paris on November 6, I see no free 2nd class places anymore. It's probably the end of the holidays :/

You could try this reservation-free connection:

Additionally, you can do this:

This TGV Marseille 19:02 - Paris 22:24 still has seats in 2nd class. Book it ASAP if you want to use it. The ticket office you went to earlier should also be able to do it
