Subject: Point to point trains in Europe
Hi, I used to buy my point to point tickets through Rail Europe, at one 800 number here in the US, they are great but charge a few surcharges here and there, now I found a better way, ( I do not know if everybody is aware or not; it is new for me , and I wish to share it) To buy a ticket between Lyon and Torino I called directly the SNCF at either a French number 33 836 35 35 35 or an English line 33 836 35 35 39, both are for International trips, they are great, no overcharges of any kind, it works like this with a Visa # you buy on the phone the seat reservation, then the same day you are traveling you buy the ticket at the railway station.Must use the same card. I do not buy train tickets often so for me it was a revelation but may be it is everyday 's bread for you....
