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.

What’s in store for V11?

You no longer need to print the tickets and instead you just need to present the barcode stored in the app. Pretty nifty isn’t it?

So you don’t want to change trains 13.5 times? We’ve got a solution for that.

    Wish I could give this app more than five stars. The material design is executed brilliantly, the app functions are amazing and it just feels so good to use. Well done on creating one of the best apps out there.
