Just bought train tickets Paris to Brive - easy (but maybe expensive?)

Jump to last reply

After reading umpteen posts about how to buy train tickets in France (we needed Paris to Brive May 9) and striking out several times I went on the man in seat 61 site and was directed to Rail Europe for USA citizens. Bingo. It was incredibly easy.

Each ticket was about $60 USD. Found the close to 10 am train I wanted. Easy to select print at home tickets, which I've already done and saved in my Dropbox folder as well.

Our credit cards don't work on the SCNF site, and Capitaine Train (not sure if I've spelled them both correctly) only showed a late night train, which wouldn't do us any good for picking up the car rental. The price seemed comparable to the 69 euro price I thought I saw on the SCNF site.

Not sure if this was an expensive option, but it worked easily and am relieved we have our tickets. Nothing else seemed to work for me.

Just wanted to post this in case anyone else was interested (or the experts can chime in on a better way to do it for someone else).
