Amsterdam to Paris train tickets - how do I retrieve them????

I'm trying to purchase train tickets from Amsterdam to Paris on the Captain Train website. I get a message that says these tickets can only be retrieved at a French station. How do I get these tickets if I'm in Amsterdam???

Thanks for your help

You are better off purchasing the ticket via or That way to can print your tickets out at home. Even of you use you can still print them at home but there will be an extra service attached to the fare.

Thanks Michael for your quick reply.

While in the process of trying to purchase the tickets, I sent an e:mail to Captain Train. I got an immediate response advising me to NOT check the box that says "print at station". By doing this, I received a "ticketless" ticket from Thalys. I can present this or print the ticket at home.

I am really impressed at the quick response from Captain Train. I've used them in the past to buy most of my advanced tickets and will continue to use them.

Thanks again Michael.
