France Ordering SNCF & Renfe tickets online

Jump to last reply

Am having problems ordering SNCF tickets even though I ordered them online for several years and received them in the mail without a problem.

I tried a few times using the SNCF & TGV sites. I need a ticket from Burgos to Hendaye (I want to take the Spanish train to Hendaye, Fr. border to connect with TGV going into France). TGV's schedule lists the service from Burgos. Each time I try to order tickets for routes am told my credit card was rejected. Phoned credit card company to see if there was some change and was told there is no problem with my card. I was well aware of this as my balance is zero. Does anyone know if the rail companies no longer accept US credit cards? I click on European country and then show mailing address to US and this has always worke.

I looked on Renfe site to get the timetable and prices I tried to order my ticket for first leg of journey but cannot see how to register for Renfe. I may have to resort to the ALSA bus if I cannot get a reservation. I would prefer having at least the ticket for first journey in advance in case of overbookings. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.
