Rail Europe offers massive discounts for train travel this Spring to ski and sun destinations in France

For anyone needing a little more persuasion to take the train to their ski holiday or winter sun break, Rail Europe is now offering savings of up to 80% off selected overnight train routes within France.

The promotion offers overnight journeys to ski destinations including Chambéry, Bourg St Maurice, Moûtiers and L'Hospitalet (for Andorra), along with beach destinations including Cannes, Nice and Fréjus.

One-way fares from Paris start at just £13 per person in a reclining seat, £21 per person in a 6-berth couchette or £40 in a 4-berth couchette.

The offer is available to book between 24 January and 14 February ’11 for travel between 27 January and 6 April ’11. Early booking is advised.

Skiers travelling by overnight train can gain an additional 2 days skiing by arriving early in the morning and leaving late on the last day of the holiday. Wake up in your destination, feeling refreshed and ready to start your holiday. It’s also up to 10 times cleaner and greener to travel by train than to fly, claims Rail Europe.
