Yearly rail europe booking rant.|
I had to be up at 5am as they train tickets for December finally opened...then a few hours of frustration as all you get is the "in processing" and crashing. Tried on various home computers, gave up, went to work tried again still the same. As per usual seeing all the affordable tickets disappearing but unable to book. Finally their phone open at 9am...usual waiting time of near 40min (don't even want to think of the phone bill). I finally talk to someone by then all cheap tickets gone, even whilst attempting to book my ticket had gone too...so in the end i had to get an even earlier departure date (more annual leave to book) and return on New year eve itself(a very early start =sleepy to party), also had to pay phone booking fee and bloody expensive ticket...not great start of the day.
I like traveling by train easier to get to south of france , as no airport near by and also for suitcase full of presents both ways but gosh it just get more stressful each time.
