Last train ticket giving me problems - need some help please.

Jump to last reply

I have booked all my other train tickets on SNCF without a hiccup, my last trip is from Brive to Paris on Sat 6th July. I have been away and only just got home so couldn't do it immediately they came on sale. I have put in all the info and there doesn't appear to be many options available. There is also a message coming up saying "Les trains pour cet été ne sont pas encore tous ouverts à la réservation." which doesn't make sense as it is well within the three month lead time normally available. There are tickets available cheaply on 2nd class at 1318 but I was hoping to go a little earlier.

Question - do I book the 1318 and be done with it? I have to return the hire car around 10.00 so didn't really want to hang around for that length of time, or wait and see if more trains become available risking the current cheap prices??

I have booked heaps of trains and never had this message come up within the 3 month period. Yes, I have double checked my dates. Is anyone else getting this message?

Is Brive a decent enough town to check out for the intervening hours - I was rather hoping to be in Paris to do the wandering around. Dang....

Thanks for any advice,
Schnauzer
