Purchasing SNCF Tickets

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I'm probably the last person to discover this, but just in case there are others:
SNCF does not accept charge cards other than those issued in France.

If you try to use a foreign card, you get a notice that says it was rejected by your bank.
That is not true. The computer doesn't contact the bank at all.

You can't use foreign credit cards over the phone, either.

You will have to go to www.raileurope.com, where you will be charge 50% more, OR
contact your hotel in France and ask if they will purchase your tickets for you.
