Too good to be true ?

Like many users you may ask yourself how we make money.

It is quite simple. Like any other official travel agent certified by the SNCF we earn a commission for each ticket sold. There is no additional fee for our clients as our prices are aligned with the carriers’ fares.

Recently changed in this version

Benvenuto to version 12!

We are super excited to announce that we have now added the rail operator Trenitalia to our app! So you can now also book your train tickets for Italy. Go viaggi!

In this release, we’ve also added departure platform notifications. Once you’re at the station, you‘ll receive a quick reminder of what platform you need to go to. This feature is currently available for all SNCF, iDTGV, Lyria, OUIGO and Eurostar trips, originating in France.

    ... Un comble pour une application dont c'est la principale utilité... On passe l'étape du 3d secure et puis... Plus rien.

    This app was indispensable. Easy to use, consistent with the website UI and best of all, functional. The killer feature is that it works with zero internet connection. Would buy again!

    Makes international train travel as easy as taking a quick trip to the next town along. It looks great, it works well, love it!! The support is great too, asked a question, within 15 minutes I had a friendly, helpful, human reply. Why can't UK rail operators work like this?
