How can I select my seats?
You can easily choose a seat preference for your train ticket. However, keep in mind that not all trains types and rail operators permit this. For example, you can specify a specific seat type and/or number on a TGV train, however you cannot do this for Deutsche Bahn trains. If you do not see an option for seating preferences, you may be travelling on a train that does not faciliate seat reservations. If you’d like to know more about this, please click here.
