Exchangeable and refundable tickets
On this first day of deconfinement, summer vacation has never been so close. However, the health crisis linked to Covid-19 is not over and health measures must continue to avoid an epidemic rebound, as Emmanuel Macron recalled.
In this uncertain context, SNCF announces that all TGV Inoui, Ouigo, Iintercités tickets are exchangeable and refundable free of charge for trips from May 10 to August 29, 2021 inclusive.
“All tickets are exchangeable and refundable free of charge up to 3 days before the departure date. This concerns TGV INOUI, OUIGO, INTERCITÉS and international TGVs For journeys in France between France and Switzerland, TGV Lyria tickets can be exchanged free of charge until the train leaves.”
How to book?
In order to obtain the precious ticket at a reduced price, there are several possibilities:
- on the OUI.sncf and OUIGO.com sites and applications,
- in stations,
- in shops and in SNCF approved agencies
If for the moment, summer bookings are lower than last year, as the company notes, we should not delay in booking. Asked about France Info , Christophe Fanichet, the CEO of SNCF Voyageurs observed:
“Today in the summer, it is still low compared to what we experienced last year, simply because the French have rather become accustomed to booking at the last moment (…) But we are observing a very strong desire to leave.”
So don’t delay too long in planning your summer vacation.
