I'm trying to buy tickets from Paris to Brive on June 27. When I go to the site and leave it in French I can see tickets for 15€. If I change the language/country to "USA" I get an error message almost immediately (way before the screen where you'd need to enter credit card info). If I select "UK" (in order to get English) then I seem to be able to continue OK.

Is there any reason why I can't do that? I would prefer to proceed in English as my French is marginal at best and I'm afraid I'll miss some small print somewhere if I do the whole transaction in French. But it does ask for your name 'exactly as it appears on your passport' (although it doesn't ask for country of origin or number) so I'm concerned that somehow saying I'm from the UK when I'm not will produce some problem.

I haven't even gotten to the part where you pay. I know there have been posts about problems with buying tickets recently but I can't seem to find them now that I need them. Anybody want to give me specific advice as to how I should do this. Thanks
