Young people, the SNCF wants you to prefer the train.
This summer, the TER operation in France is relaunched.
Initiated last summer to relaunch travel after the Covid-19, it is accompanied this year by two promotional offers on Ouigo and TGV.
"The desire for mobility this summer is particularly strong among young people, who want to move more than ever, who love the train and are attached to its ecological benefit," said Christophe Fanichet, Chairman and CEO of SNCF Voyageurs. This is why we want to make their life and vacations easier by giving them the opportunity to travel simply and freely at low prices. "
The France TER Pass renewed.
For 29 euros per month, this pass allows young people aged 12 to 25 to travel unlimited on the entire TER network, regardless of the region, in July and August. One of our readers, Florent Burger, had also told us in an open letter that he wanted to benefit from it again this summer. "It was a real pleasure to have been able to visit certain regions of France by TER train, and that would certainly not have been the case without this offer at a very attractive price," recalls the young Alsatian. 70,000 TER passes from France were sold last summer. They will be on sale from June 23 on the TER sites and on the SNCF Assistant application.
3 million banknotes less than 10 euros.
Still on the TER network, managed by the Regions, 3 million low-cost tickets are on sale for the summer period on the TER websites and on Oui. SNCF. No age requirements, they are open to everyone. Created in collaboration with the regional tourism committees, an interactive map will allow you to locate points of interest near the train and book your ticket in a few clicks.

From this Friday until July 7, SNCF is offering all young people under 25 a voucher of 10 euros valid on all TGV Ouigo tickets and options, with no minimum purchase, until December 11.

One month TGV Max subscription at 1 euro.
From June 29 until July 15, SNCF offers the first month of the TGV Max subscription at 1 euro (instead of 79 euros).
Reserved for young people aged 16 to 27, this pass includes unlimited travel on the TGV Inoui and Intercités.

In addition, TGV Max subscribers who wish to go to Europe can buy their tickets for Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Italy at the reduced price of 19 euros, from June 29 to September 30.
Asked about this set of summer offers, the Fnaut (National Federation of Transport User Associations) applauds.
"The SNCF has lost many of its customers and is trying to get them back before the start of the school year," observes Bruno Gazeau, its president.
Anything that goes in the direction of helping young people and holidaymakers on a budget, we are in favor.
