London to Bern / Email Notification of Trip Availability

I received an email saying my trip was now available to book but the webpage still says "It is too early to book the requested journey. " when I got to book it. The trip is less than 3 months from today and is from London to Bern. Any ideas?

    Hi Leah,

    Generally, a connection from London to Bern would involve 2 train changes along the way; once in Paris and then once in Basel. However, for many upcoming dates the direct TGV Lyria trains from Paris to Basel to do not appear to be operating with no indication as to why. It is possible there is track maintenance scheduled on the route, in which case, you may end up needing to change trains once more in Strasbourg en route between Paris and Basel.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. For a route such as this, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment of the connection. The direct trains from Strasbourg to Basel, however, are only able to be booked locally when you're there.

    From what I'm able to tell right now, the track maintenance would be throughout the month of July at least. When will you be making this trip?
