Minipris tickets

I am trying to buy minipris train tickets online -- so far with no luck. Although everything else is in English, when I go to the final screen to enter my credit card info, everything is in Norwegian and I'm getting an error message, "Kortet ble awist. Vennligst forsok med et annet kort." While my Norwegian dictionary has a few of these words, I can't figure out the overall meaning. I have been making up an 8-digit mobile number, so I don't think that's it. Anybody know what that means?

Google Translate and Bing Translator are always helpful with foreign webpages.

NSB and foreigh bookings are a sorry mix. Recently they also introduced added security to the booking process, something that excluded many foreign credit card as the issuers in many countries don't offer that layer of security (and without it you can't book at all). Read more about it here: nsb.no/our-tickets/3d-secure-article41035-43…

Now to your problem. Is your card blocked from foreign use? Most US card do have this block to prevent skimming and fraud. If so you need to call your bank and have them remove the block.

Easiest solution to book is to call NSB and book over the phone +47 815 00 888 (you can use Skype or something similiar to avoid international call rates).

I had this problem. Card was blocked for foreign use. About a day later the bank called and asked if the charges should have been approved. The next day I tried again and everything worked fine.
