Are there well known places/agencies where I can buy Thalys train tickets without having to suffer the bugs, annoyances, and lack of accessibility on thalys.com/vsct.fr?
The site has form validation that rejects perfectly valid email addresses, and payment rejection when the bank claim that no request was ever made.
My plan is to travel from Paris to Brussels, in case there might be an alternative, but I believe they are the only ones with that route.
Edit 1: my plan of not buying online and hoping that ~30 days would still get me a good price was a huge mistake. A ticket for a trip 29 days from now, is costing €148 instead of ~€40!
