Unable to Find Reservations from Toulouse to Barcelona Compatible with my Rail Pass


I purchased a Eurail Two Country Select Pass for France and Spain. Now that I have cemented my itinerary, I was beginning the process of reserving seats for the trains I will be taking. I have no issues selecting reservations for the high speed trains within France, but when I try to search for a reservation for a train from Toulouse to Barcelona I am only able to purchase tickets for the specific train I need to take along with this message:

"This train requires travelers with a rail pass to purchase a reservation but we were unable to find reservations compatible with your rail pass for this train"

Why would a reservation be incompatible for my rail pass in this instance? Also, if I am able to buy a ticket for the train why would I not be able to make a reservation for this same train? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi Kenny,

    We're sorry for the confusing wording. The word "incompatible" there doesn't even make sense. Rest assured, your rail pass is valid on a train from Toulouse to Barcelona. Generally, you would be able to book these reservations on our site; however, passholder reservations for the train from Toulouse to Barcelona are not able to be purchased there at this time. Until this is fixed, you would just have to call us in order to purchase passholder reservations for this train. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. The direct train from Toulouse to Barcelona is a France-Spain High Speed trains. Generally, the France-Spain High Speed trains can be booked once within 120 days of an intended departure date.
