Just Purchased TGV Tickets - Avignon ----> Paris

Jump to last reply

I had been practicing this just to reduce chances of an issue.

I wanted to buy two TGV tickets from Avignon to Paris for June 14, 2012.

Then I realized I don't have to wait until the 14th to purchase Prem tickets. From the US the evening of the 13th should do.

It did.

www.voyages-SNCF.com

Selected English at the bottom of the page.
Selected starting and ending points.
Selected the date and an hour or so earlier than we wanted.
Selected Antarctica as home location.

I then selected the exact departure time and fare (60 Euros for two of us - could have been 50E an hour before or an hour later but wanted this time).

Then I entered the name of the passangers and dates of birth as well as my email address.

Then we got to the parted I dreaded. The credit card part.

I selected VISA, entered the card number and the security code from the back of the card.

Voila!!!! The transaction went thru.

I printed out the confirmation with the file reference, download the E-Ticket Confirmation in a .pdf file and printed it out on my color printer (there were a few colors on it so I thought it would be nice to print in color).

I fully expected issues but none.

I hope this helps others trying to do the same.
