thalys train Amsterdam to Paris

If we buy a ticket from Amsterdam to Paris in advance and then decide we want to spend an hour or so in Brussels en route can we do this, or do we have to decide now if we want to get off in Brussels and then buy 2 separate tickets - Amsterdam/Brussels - Brussels/Paris?

Hi there,

Unfortunately the latter. Thalys works on a seat-reservation-compulsory model.

There is no easy alternative too as currently between Amsterdam and Brussels there are no alternate direct trains, only with transfer between two IC trains (in Rotterdam or The Hague) you can also reach Brussels; these IC trains _do_ have solely unreserved seats though hence you are flexible in timing.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
