SNCF looks smarter

Jump to last reply

The French train system SNCF seems to be streamlining its much-unloved Internet operation. Here is a recent promotional letter indicating the new approach:
http://www.voyages-sncf.com/promotion-train/train/derniere-minute?Prov=NL&ectrans=1&pid=51793a6db57fe9e763ebe818a2a214f3b75ca458&prex=T_D1P2_1405_306061_PETITS_PRIX_-1937001677

Click on the French flag to change to English. It details the integration of the former Rail Europe UK operation under the Voyages-sncf.com brand. The instructions for printing tickets at home are clearer. And there is a useful map of its major rail systems including Eurorail partners, which I have never been able to find before. http://uk.voyages-sncf.com/en/train-tickets/train-network-map
Also interesting, it offers to sell tickets on-line for some of those partners, for instance point-to-point on Italo in Italy, a company whose own on-line operation has been famously baulky. The pricing is in English pounds but still could be handy for North American customers.

Competition, it seems, is a good thing.
