The French rail operator SNCF has rebranded its ticket booking service from Voyages-SNCF to OUI.sncf. Here's what you need to know.
From today, the French rail operator SNCF's ticket booking website will be known as OUI.sncf in a move away from Voyages-SNCF.
The rebranding brings the online ticket service into line with other arms of te SNCF business, including the company's new(ish) low-cost TGV service OuiGo and its OuiBus budget bus network. It also has OuiCar, a car-sharing service.
I'm told you'll still be able to book a space for your bike on TGV services (which themselves are being rebranded 'InOui'), while there will be additional services such as an email alert system to let you know when the cheapest tickets have gone on sale.
But for people simply buying bike-rail tickets online, nothing changes except the website URL.
We have loads of links to the old site on our own website to try and make it easier to book bike-rail tickets online. We'll be progressiely updating all links, so bear with us.
But, to confirm, the URL you need to book French rail tickets direct from SNCF is here. (As explained elsewhere, it's not possible to book bike-rail tickets online from the UK SNCF site – you need to use the French one).
To avoid all confusion, you could also use the excellent Trainline service from anywhere in the world.
