Renfe and SNCF, the Spanish and French train operators, are currently running a flash promo sale for late spring/early summer tickets from Spain to France.
You can access this offer only through Renfe-SNCF Spanish website.
The promo sell consists of 2×1 tickets (eff. 50 % off) on all fares (Coach/Business) for trains departing from Spain (Barcelona/Girona/Figueres) with final destination France (Paris, Lyon, Valence, Marseille, Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Nimes, Montpelier, Carcassonne, Toulouse).
The promotional fare is valid for the purchase of any two tickets between the aforementioned cities between 02 MAY and 02 JUL 2017. The deadline for ticket purchase is end of day, April 24 (GMT +2). The purchased fare does not allow changes or refunds (purchase is final).
The website allows performing a monthly search for the price for individual tickets (which would be the total price paid for two tickets using this promo). Here are the lowest prices found for Barcelona – Paris during May and June.
Clicking on ‘RESERVAR’ takes you to Renfe booking engine. The lowest priced option corresponds to the 2×1-promo fare. For Barcelona – Paris there are tickets as low as EUR 19.95!
A train ride by the French countryside is always a fantastic idea. If you are planning your summer holidays in southern Europe this promo is excellent for side trips or repositioning for flights. Please notice that the promo is only valid departing Spain, so return tickets have regular prices.
