Buying & collecting

Want to book your tickets on the Internet? Choose from our convenient solutions for collecting your ticket—in our stations, at an SNCF sales office and even in your home.

Home ticket delivery
With our home delivery service, you can pay for your train ticket electronically* and have it delivered directly to you at no extra charge. Simply select the home delivery option when you book on line, and your ticket will arrive by postal mail. Home ticket delivery is available up to 4 days before your departure (not including Sundays and bank holidays). If you live outside France, allow an average of 7 days for your ticket to arrive.

* Ticket price must be at least €1.

SNCF self-service machines
If you’ve already booked and paid electronically, you can collect your tickets immediately from one of the self-service machines in our stations and sales offices, using the credit card you used to purchase your tickets (1). Enter your record number and insert your card into the machine to get your tickets.

Ticket windows
You can also collect your tickets from one of the windows in the SNCF station or sales office of your choice. Simply present your record number and the credit card you used to purchase your tickets (1) on line.

e-ticket service
With our e-ticket service, you can buy tickets without ever leaving the comfort of home. You’ll receive a confirmation email containing the e-ticket in your name, along with all the details of your journey. Simply print the ticket and slip it into your purse or carryon. And when you choose an e-ticket, you can change or cancel your booking from anywhere, right up until the train departs. All you need to do is log on to our website or call 36 35 (2).

(1)   Do not use a virtual credit card if you will collect your tickets at an SNCF station, sales office or authorized travel agency, and be sure that the credit card you used to purchase your tickets does not expire before you plan to collect them.

* €0.40/min including tax, plus any fees charged by your service provider.
