PREM tickets

Jump to last reply

The term PREM may be out-dated. I just purchased tickets for June 3 and paid 30€ for two traveling from Paris to Brive-la-Gaillarde; nowhere was the term PREM mentioned. I used the French site, claiming a French location for me, had no problems with my U.S. credit card which required from my bank a verification code (pre-established) and which the SNCF site explained would happen when using a Visa card. I do not know if the rate was particularly low because we are 60+ years old--the SNCF site asks for the age range of the travelers. I normally take the train to Limoges, but the arrival time is 12:49 and the Europcar agency in Limoges closes at 1p.m. during the week. I've had to wait for too many friends coming on late trains to chance the 10 minute window, so I am going to Brive whose car agency is open in the afternoon.

I originally decided to drive from Paris to the Dordogne, but this was too good to pass up; now I need to change the car reservation.
