Please help me figure out how to book train tickets (TGV)

I need to figure out how I can purchase or reserve tickets from St. Pierre du Corps in Tours to Paris for the beginning of September. I tried the SNCF site and I am not sure if they will not let me make the reservation because it is too soon?

Hi amo,
No you can book 3 months in advance max only. (90days)

So while you're waiting have a look at MorganB's thread :

I thought it was 60 days in advance. Has this changed?

Yes it changed from 60 to 90 days. Plus the iDTGV opens up well in advance. Supposedly 4 months but from time to time they open it up further out.

>Vous pouvez réservez ....

Another example of the general lessening of standards.

That's what happens when schoolboys no longer wear ties, and gentlemen don't wear jackets in restaurants.
