Booking TGV trains online

Jump to last reply

I do LOVE the internet and the ability it gives we travellers to research and book ahead for our holidays. The time wasted with little 'issues' that crop up, I'm not such a fan of!
My problem - I've hopped onto the IDTVG.com website. Found the Paris-Nice train I want, filled out all of the forms etc with success. Then filled in my visa details etc only to discover a message saying my card has been 'refused'. I've checked with my bank and even tried using another card and even tried booking via another website. I can't figure out where I'm going wrong. I really want to book this particular train, and don't want to wait until we get to Paris. The problem appears to be with the websites ability to recognise my cards - not sure? Anyone had anything similar happen? The merchent doesn't even contact my bank, it just says 'refused'? Any help appreciated. Contacting IDTVG is near on impossible. A lot of the info is printed in French and I can't seem to get in contact with them directly.
