The SNCF (France railways) cannot sell more than 5 reservations at a time online.

If you're currently in France, then just go to a ticket office. That will also be much cheaper because Eurail charge an extra 2€ per person and train. If you're with 9, then that really adds up.

Some hints: The train from Portbou at 10:35 continues to Barceclona Sants, arrrival at 13:10. You save €10 per person. Also, domestic reservations for Spain cannot be done online.

But for the reservations in France, it's best to buy them from a ticket office. Do that ASAP, since this is a very busy time.
