How to restore domain

We had an unfortunate misunderstanding.
There was a domain name, but the registrar's contacts had an incorrect contact address, and therefore all notification letters went into the void.
They found out that the site was unavailable for 3 days, turned to tech support there, shrugging their hands - they say wait until the domain is completely deleted, and then buy it back. After 6 days, he will be completely free.

And so I have two questions.
  Is there anything I can do now?
  Are there any services for the pre-purchase of domain names, i.e. it is guaranteed that when it is released, no one has outstripped me.


Depends on the registrar - maybe, maybe not. It is necessary to communicate with the registrar. If the domain is short, beautiful and hyped, various bots can still spin around the registrar, profiting from this.

Try contacting Afnic (registry .fr domains)
It is unlikely that they will respond quickly, but it's worth trying.
Continue to communicate with support. Each registrar may have its own settings and policies for domain maintenance, but usually you can try to raise them from the redemption. Just keep in mind that there may be an additional fee (30-$300)

There are such services. It's called Backordering, but I don't think anyone can restore it like that.
