You will get some expert advice on this forum but you need to be a little more specific. Which airport and what time are you arriving would be a helpful. You may find yourself with a choice of spending a night in Paris, taking a night train or flying onward to Biarritz depending on your arrival information.

You can usually purchase tickets at the train station. Worst case scenario is you have to wait for the next train. Exceptions would be holidays when seats are completely booked.
