Hi, I'll be backpacking in Europe this September. All flights and accommodations have been booked and confirmed. The only thing that I cant finalize now is my Thalys train ticket from Amsterdam to Paris. I'm from the Philippines and I've been trying to purchase online using my credit cards, I've tried both Visa and Mastercard, but both were unsuccessful. I've been getting unsuccessful payment advise from Thalys and Hispeed are not accepting payments from credit cards issued outside of Europe.
Can anyone recommend other options? are there other sites that offer Thalys tickets and accept VISA or MASTERCARD issued in the Philippines/Asia?
I want to buy the tickets before I leave so it's still cheaper. The ticket fare might be so much higher if i buy it on the day of the trip to Paris.
I went from London to Amsterdam booking the Eurostar for London to Brussels online, then getting a Thalys ticket up to Amsterdam when I got to Brussels.
Maybe that's an option from Paris. seat61.com
was a good source of info.
Thanks Jo. I've actually read seat61.com before to get info on how to book thalys tickets online but it didnt mention that Thalys is not accepting online payments using credit cards issued in the Philippines. I'm hoping there's a possible workaround to this.
