I usually know what I am doing, but had an unusual problem come up today. I bought my TGV tickets to pick up in France - did it in French as I read reasonably well - and know that I have to have that same credit card with me to pick it up. I can pick up from the kiosk or the window. The site is quite firm on the point. No problem, right?
Today, I received an email from my MC issuer that many accounts were compromised last January and they are still having to cancel accounts. Mine is one of these. So, they are unbending and my card will be canceled in 20 days - before my trip - and they are Fedexing me a new one.
Can I take a deactivated old credit card with me to show that I have it and get my ticket from the ticket window instead of the kiosk? All I see on the website is that if you no longer have the card, Lost, stolen or reissued, the only solution is to cancel your reservation and rebook. Naturally, my ticket is non-cancelable/non-refundable.
