Captain Train doesn't offer same route as SNCF?

Jump to last reply

It's too early for me to book my train tickets yet, but I was searching just to get an idea of fares and time tables.

I need to go from Paris to Bern via Basel. SNCF allows me to do this with one change in Basel. The train I want leaves Paris at 10:23. Perfect. However, everyone on this site says to use Captain Train because it's cheaper, easier to use, takes more credit cards, etc.

So.... I go to Captain Train, but the only train they have available from Paris to Bern leaves at 18:23, which is way too late. I need to leave in the morning. So I try searching Paris to Basel. They have the train I want from Paris to Basel leaving at 10:23. Great Now I look for a train from Basel to Bern, but the site says that they are sorry, but they do not offer any trains for the route from Basel to Bern.

I thought everyone has always said that Captain Train has the exact same routes as voyages-SNCF? But as far as I can tell, they don't.

So I guess I am required to use SNCF when it's time to book? Will they take my US Mastercard?

Thanks for any help!
