idtgv train online booking

Jump to last reply

Hi
I read about some people having problems with online booking on the idtgv trains..

Yesterday I used my credit card to book tickets. I got a message saying that I would receive an email with the tickets within 24 hrs.
My credit card has however not been debited..
I was wondering whether this is a normal experience while booking on the idtgv.com site? Is there a time lag in debiting the account and issuance of a ticket?
I did not get any message stating that my card could not be used - but it was strange that I did'nt receive my tickets instantly..

Would like to hear whether anyone else has had similar issues when using credit cards issued outside France?

Look forward to hearing from fellow fodorites..
Thanks
