Ah, October. The time of year, where supermarkets and shopping malls are all already eagerly getting into the festivities of Christmas. It seems that this year, SNCF has also taken on this merry spirit and will soon release their train tickets for the upcoming winter holiday period. So you can be sure to get your hands on these tickets before you even begin carving out your pumpkin for Halloween!
What’s better than December 25th? October 12th!
Mid-October traditionally calls for the sale of tickets for the holiday season (at least for SNCF trains). This year, the tickets will go on sale on Thursday, October 12th, and you’ll be able to book journeys starting December 10, 2017 to January 12, 2018. As usual, you will have to get up early (or stay up late – depending on your timezone) if you want to get the cheapest tickets. Like always, they go like hotcakes and are sold on a first come, first served basis. There is no set time announced for the sale, though we suggest to be ready to book by 06:00 in the morning (Central European Time).
We highly recommend that you set yourself a reminder to avoid missing out on this sale – and most importantly – getting your hands on the lowest priced tickets available. Since we are always thinking of you and would very much dislike seeing you being late to the game, we’ve created a reminder event to add to your calendar. So make sure you add it, set an alarm and get ready to start booking your winter holiday tickets!
