Courier Service for Tickets?

Hello all,

I've been reading here for quite a while but never posted before. I'm looking at tickets from Dijon to Venice for 7/3/2011, and the tickets for the C4 couchette are almost 200 euros cheaper from trenitalia than a T3 (triple berth) or 4-person couchette on tgv-europe.com

Does anyone know of any reliable mailing services in Italy where you can send a package to that Italian address, and they'll forward it to you in America? If such a service exists, I can't image that it would cost even close to 100 euros.

Thanks in advance!

Hi pei,

Why not purchase your tickets from www.voyages-sncf.com?

You might be able to print them online. At worst, you could pick up the tickets in Dijon.

Hi ira,
Thanks for the response. The fare on trenitalia.com for a 4 person couchette is almost 200 euros cheaper than a triple berth on voyages-sncf.com

I think it's because they offer special fares on the couchettes (moove fare?). It's quite bizarre and a little silly considering it's the exact same train!

I see tickets for 125€ on sncf for your date for a T3. What price are you trying to match?

There was originally the possibility of a "Moove" fare on trenitalia (69 euros), but now it says "The train, journey section or category solution requested are unavailable for the date selected. Please enter different data. (Error 2060)"

Sorry for the double post. I should clarify that I'm buying tickets for 3 people. This is how I originally got the almost 200 euro difference: (125-69)*3
