I want to travel from Lyon to Girona on June the 6th. I already read throught the FAQ and see I’m not the only one having trouble making a reservation for a train that crosses the border.
I tried to make a reservation with the interrail-planner. It seemed possible at first, but at the checkout it said there was not enough time left to sent the paper tickets, although it is still 9 days in advance. I already booked my first train from Ostend (Belgium) to Lyon that day so it would be nice to be able to travel on. At an nmbs station I cannot make the reservation because apparently it’s not possible for them anymore to sell tickets that are crossing the Spanish border.
I can try to purchase the tickets on the day itself, but that seems a bit tricky and exhausting to me as I only have half an hour to transbord…
I saw some things about the DB and making reservations on the phone, but I don’t have a credit card. Does anyone have suggestions what to do next?
I did look up the regional trains but it will take me a very long time and a lot of transfers or maybe I didn’t look right?
Thanks for any advice,
