Is anyone else having troupble purching train tickets online at RENFE.COM

Jump to last reply

This is my first attempt at purchasing tickets on the RENFE site. I have purchased dozens of tickets on the French SNCF site.

I am from the US and I notified all the issuers of my credit cards to expect a transaction. We spend 2 months in Europe every year, so this is nothing new to us.

The RENFE is pretty simple & straightforward - compared to the SNCF site.

I entered all the info - name/Credit Card, etc and then clicked the final "buy".

The system cranked through a couple of screens, telling me:
- we are connecting to your bank
- a connect to my bank, including the bank logo
- another "nothing" screen
- a screen saying something like "don't do anything - we are connecting"
- an final screen saying "an error has occurred" with a G001 code, and also saying "the process cannot continue right now. We apologize for any inconvenience"

I tried this with my Capital One credit card about 3 times over 3 days. I also tried this with my BofA Debit card 3 days later. My wife (who worked at Visa for 20 years) called the Cap One people and they said that there was no transaction encountered - no acceptances or declines.

I am using Mozilla Firefox

Anyone have any ideas???
