SNCF Train Ticket Help.

We will be traveling from Lyon to Annecy. When I look up the tickets on the SNCF website it lists the train information but when I go to order the tickets it says "Attention, you cannot make reservations for certain journeys in this list" and they all say "without reservation" on them. Should I still book the tickets? What happens and are we guarenteed seats? Thanks.

sounds like they're saying certain short distance regional trains don't accept reservations - you will always be able to board and most likely find empty seats. I see no reason to buy these tickets before arrival - same price i think as discounts are usually for longer trips on TGV trains or CorailTEOZ - then at the ticket window ask for a reservation if possible.

I tried topping the MorganB post but for some reason cannot do so.

I think Pal is on the right track but you'll get an even more extensive explanation on the MorganB thread..do a search for that name and it will come up.
