Need to pre-book train tickets to carcassonne?

We are flying to Toulouse ariving late afternoon in early July and need to catch the train to Carcassonne. TEOZ and TER have trains departing about 2 hours after our scheduled landing, but I am reluctant to pre-book a specific time in case we reach Toulouse station later (or even earlier). Can we buy at the station?

Any advice welcomed

You certainly will not be stranded if you do not pre-book.

Ter trains have no reserved seating and the fare does not vary. You do not ever need to pre-book these trains. Téoz trains do require a reservation but it is unlikely that a particular train on this route would be sold out. The walk-up fare on a Téoz will be a few €uros more than on a Ter essentially reflecting the cost of the reservation. The Ter trains do take a few minutes more to make the trip as they make more frequent stops.

FWIW I think there are also a few TGVs between the two cities which will essentially have the same T&Cs as the Téoz trains.

Thank you for this reassurance. We did look at TGV as well but the timetable doesn't match up
