Has anyone traveled on Thalys without a "ticketless" barcode confirmation?

Jump to last reply

I booked two tickets for a trip in May to go from Paris Nord to Antwerpen, Belgium and was only sent one of the ticketless barcode emails. (I found the one barcode email in my spam folder, but not the second one.) I was also sent a confirmation email with my booking reference information (but that email also says ATTENTION: THIS E-MAIL IS NOT A VALID TRAVEL DOCUMENT.)

I called the SNCB call center (since I also booked via the Belgian version of the Thalys website) and was told to call the Thalys customer center. The person at the Thalys customer center advised me that this is a "known problem" and I should just board the train with the emails that I received and the Train manager would be able to sort the details.

(I learned from the SNCB call center representative that I should have booked via the SNCB portal to have more control over my reservation at http://www.b-europe.com/Travel )

Has anyone had to travel without the Thalys barcode? Was it a non-issue? I am a bit wary of boarding a train with only a document that states that it is not a valid travel document.

Thanks for your info.
