Help: trying to book train tickets on Mtr Express, Sweden

Hi All,
I'm trying to book seats on a Mtr Express train in Sweden. However when I get to the last step (payment) it doesn't like any of my credit cards. I've tried my chase sapphire preferred card, all my other visa cards, a master cards, my husbands visa cards! I've called my cc companies to make sure there isn't a block for over seas transactions. I'm out of ideas. Anyone successfully book tickets on this carrier, and if so what cc did you use? Thanks!

You probably needed verify by visa.

Have you tried to use a US-based Amex? It's worked for me before.

You might want to try notifying card issuers that you are traveling in Sweden now, rather than waiting until the dates of your actual trip.
