Next week, I am landing in Paris CDG airport and an hour later I have to be at Gare du Nord. Therefore, I wanted to buy a ticket in advance to get from the airport to Gare du Nord as quickly as possible without having to buy a ticket first.
Here is what I did:
Googled and found this https://www.ratp.fr/en/titres-et-tarifs/airport-tickets where it says that the ticket with RER B costs 10,30€.
Followed the link to Book online with Parisinfo where I chose "RER B One way Train Ticket Charles de Gaulle airport - Paris" and clicked on "Add to basket". So far so good.
How it wants me to choose where I would like my order delivered to:
- Collection point (Free)
- Home delivery (from 14,50 €)
- Delivery at your hotel in Paris (12 €)
So clearly, this particular path ends up with them wanting to deliver the ticket physically.
Is there a way to buy this ticket truly online? By "truly online" I mean that I don't just pay online but the ticket actually gets delivered online, with a QR code to verify its authenticity if needed before or on the train or something like that.
