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:

Click on the French flag to change to English. It details the integration of the former Rail Europe UK operation under the 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.
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.
