Difficulty reserving paper tickets Paris - Barcelona ''not enough time for delivery'' but booking 6 weeks in advance?


I am trying to reserve tickets for Paris to Barcelona and Barcelona to Marseille. Both these tickets require paper tickets to be delivered. I am booking 6 weeks in advance, yet when I put in a shipping address it says that there is not enough time for the tickets to be delivered. This happens even when I make the shipping address a hostel on the way, or any country I put in. How can there not be enough time to deliver to any address with 6 weeks worth of time?

The delivery time is so long as there are so many people ordering reservations and paper passes.

There are other ways to make the reservations you want. 

The best way to make reservations for French trains is to call SNCF. No need of Pass Cover Number.


 Press #85 for English, no booking fees, reservations are sent via e-mail

The advice from the experienced travellers in the community is to use other ways to make reservations than the Interrail/Eurail website. You can look at the guide in the link:
