I'm travelling on business by rail from the UK to Stuttgart via Paris next month and the trip has been booked for me by my employer via a travel agent.
For the Paris-Stuttgart leg of the trip, I've been told I need to collect the ticket from the station. I have a six-character 'trip locator' code (like a PNR for a flight) and an eight-digit 'rail confirmation' number.
The only information I can find about ticket collection on the SNCF website says
For outward travel from France, you can collect your tickets from a station or SNCF shop in France. You must present the valid bank card and the confidential code you used for making the payment.
Bank card used for booking must be shown. The bank card has to be still valid when you retrieve your tickets.
If the traveller cannot present the bank card and there is insufficient time for home delivery, he must cancel his tickets.
Obviously I don't have the bank card that was used to buy the ticket. Can I collect my ticket when I arrive at the station in Paris using one of the codes I have, or do I need to do something else to make sure I have the ticket before I travel?
(Note, I'm certain that the SNCF ticket is separate from my London-Paris Eurostar ticket.)
