Reservation Service costs
The cost of a train reservation consists of two different fees:
The booking fee. This is 8 euros per train, no matter how many seats you book on that train. For Italian e-ticket reservations, it's only 6 euros per train.
The train reservation fee. Prices vary considerably, depending on the train. See the full list of train reservation fees.
Example: These are the costs for a 1st class reservation for 2 travelers on the Thalys high-speed train from Paris to Amsterdam: 8 euros booking fee + 2 x 35 euros train reservation fee = 78 euros.
