Having quite the trouble booking TGV tix - Help?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I'm trying to book tickets on the TGV via SNCF's website (in French). I'd use Rail Europe, but apart from the fact that their prices are almost always higher, they aren't even showing the train I need. I'm looking for tickets (4 adults + 1 free toddler) on the 9:25 train leaving Bayeux, eventually arriving at Strasbourg Gare at 16:18. The 9:25 train isn't an option on Rail Europe's site.

So... easy enough... buy directly from SNCF right? Only when I go to check out on SNCF's website, there's no option to print the tickets at home. I can only have them delivered to an address in France (not an option), or pick them up at a self-service kiosk via the Borne Libre service. It cautions that if you do not have a chip-and-pin card, you will not be able to use these kiosks. I have a chip-and-signature, but not a chip-and pin.

So... anyone? What do I do? Get the tickets anyway, show up in Paris, find a station with a counter, and wing it?
