Subject: Re: Advance Train Reservations
Hi, Fanny... have you booked on the SNCF site? I went through the process, and it was fairly easy, but it didn't look as if it was a secure site to me, so I ended up booking through Rail Europe for tickets from Paris to Chartres. I know that there are SNCF travel agents that you can book with once in Paris, and they charge a small fee, but I was anxious to be able to tell our friends that we were meeting that we had tickets and when we were coming, so I pre-booked. Actually, though, it turned out that we couldn't reserve seats, and the tickets were open ended, so we could have waited until we arrived in Paris.
