SNCF Train Ticketing Help

Jump to last reply

In the past (more than 5 years ago) I was able to successfully book and print tickets, as well as look up schedules for planning - on their SNCF Voyages.com website. I remember it was a little tricky to get to English language (I'm in U.S.) site, but I managed. I don't want to be switched over to Rail Europe, which is what they do. Does anyone know how to do this?

I'm planning a Spring trip to Paris and will have 15 days. I've been to Paris many times, so don't need to stay there the whole time, so I'm researching various options for a few days in the middle of the 2 weeks to spend somewhere else. At this point Bruges interests me the most, as I've never been (I love all things Medieval). Maybe a side trip to Ghent, too. Anyway, I need to look up train options, prices, etc. and the SNCF site is frustrating. I know enough French to get an idea, but would be uncomfortable buying the tickets that way, with all the "flexibility" options, etc. I used to love PREM tickets, but not anymore, too much can happen.

Also, how far in advance can you book? 3 months? I know that it's less expensive the further out - and tickets to Belgium don't look cheap!

Any help would be appreciated.
