Rail Ticket Booking for France 4 th January 2014.

I have spent many many hours trying to book tickets on the Voyager site and then captainetrain site as this was suggested as a no problem ticketing site. I have followed everyone's suggestions from past postings but still when I try to pay it comes up as " temporarily unavailable" (for days on end?) I have tried a few different cards and times. Both sites accept the booking but will not go past the payments page. I did read somewhere that Australian cards may not be accepted but can't remember where, how would I book otherwise? I really don't want to leave it until we arrive in Paris to purchase the tickets as our accommodation is already booked around France.

Can anyone help me? I have tried emailing the sites with no success in receiving a reply.

We are travelling from Paris to Bordeaux, Bordeaux to Toulouse,Toulouse to Barcelona, Barcelona to Montpellier.

Thanks everyone,

It will probably be the middle of next week before bookings for early January are made available.

There is a timetable change in December and sometimes there is a delay opening up bookings until the times are finalised. Just keep trying, they will appear eventually.
