Need help with booking Train in Portugal

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow fodorites. I am having huge problems booking a train from Faro to Lisboa Oriente in Portugal.

Firstly, I don't understand the seating configuration in 1st Class on the IC train. My two pre-selected seat numbers (which can be changed if I want) are Seat 52 and Seat 56. In the graphic they appear to be window seats on each side of the train. They do not conform with the standard 2+1 seating configuration for most of the rest of the carriage. Also, as an example, the strange numbering of the seats are (another window to window 2 seats):

Seat 11 and Seat 15

Then, on the single seat window side, the numbering is (right to left):
12, 21, 22
And on the other side of the aisle (2 seat config), the numbering is:
14 - 16, 23-25, 24-26

Does anyone know how to decipher this configuration. Should we keep our two window seats separated by the aisle?

Also, using cp.pt site, when I get to the payment section of the process, I am presented with a dialog that reads:
"Your payment information are protected with the safety standards.
For security reasons, you will be redirected to your bank for authentication."
"payline.pleaseWait.3dsecure.message"

This dialog box then starts a "spinning" wheel which never ceases. After a number of minutes, I give up and have to start again. Unfortunately, the same thing happens over and over. I have used different cards and different browsers with the same result.

Any suggestions/explanations would be gratefully received.

Thanks and regards,

Steve
