Planning to be in Paris in the springtime? SNCF (the French national train company) is running several promotions this week (March 12-19, 2007) . Promotional fares are for journeys from Paris over the next few months.
The best deal is the €66 round-trip fare to London, per person, when you travel with a buddy. You have to reserve before April 10, 2007 to get this fare, and it’s not valid for all trains.
Other great deals include €19 one-way tickets (again, per person, assuming two people traveling together) from Paris to Brussels, Bruges, and Liège. Another good deal: €30 per person will get you and a chum one-way tickets from Paris to Lille or Dijon. The key to the lowest fares is flexibility with your travel days.
Use a credit-card to reserve your journey online in advance. You can pick up your ticket on your departure day from an automated machine at the train station.
