Voyages sncf new

Voyages-sncf.com Voyages-sncf.com is the main booking site of the French national rail operator, SNCF. Loco2 is connected to UK version of the SNCF booking system (Voyages SNCF-UK), so we have the same trains and tickets as the UK website, available in GBP. This includes excellent coverage of the high-speed network, comprehensive coverage of local trains within France and international TGVs e.g. Paris-Milan or Paris- Zurich. Some tickets (IDTGV and OuiGo) are not currently available on Loco2.

Renfe

Renfe.com is the website of Spain's national rail operator. Loco2 has a direct connection to Renfe and offers the same trains and tickets as buying direct*. This includes excellent coverage of high-speed and regional trains including AVE, Euromed and Talgo. For all of these services, Loco2 has access to the cheapest "Turista Promo" fares with discounts of up to 70%. Loco2 does not have access to 'Mesa' fares (discounts for tables) or Multi-buy discounts, available exclusively to Renfe.com.

Dbahn

Bahn.com is the website of the German national rail operator, Deutsche Bahn (DB). Loco2 has a direct connection to Deutsche Bahn so offers all domestic German tickets and international trains at the same price as booking direct. The only exception is City Night Line sleeper trains which we sell via our connection to Voyages SNCF-UK (see below). It may be possible to buy cheaper tickets for the CNL from DB direct.

Nre logo

nationalrail.co.uk is run by ATOC, which represents all UK rail operators (e.g. Virgin, First Great Western). You can search for trains on the site, but it's not possible to buy tickets - you will be redirected to the relevant train operator to complete your purchase. Loco2 is connected to the same booking system but can sell tickets for all trains. Some rail operators release cheaper Advance fares for their own trains which are only available direct. These may not be available on Loco2 or via other agencies, e.g. The Trainline. Loco2 does not currently sell sleeper tickets for night trains in the UK.

Trenitalia

Trenitalia.com is the website of the Italian national rail operator. Loco2 is directly connected to the Italian booking system, with the same tickets and prices, making it an easy alternative to booking with Trenitalia. "Paperless" or collect-at-station tickets are available for every train. Some regional trains such as the Circumvesuviana railway (for Pompeii), aren't available since they can't be booked online.

Italo logo

Italo.com is the website of Italo that operates high-speed trains between major cities in Italy, in competition with Trenitalia. Loco2 has a direct connection to Italo so has the same trains and tickets as booking directly.

Thello

Thello.com sells tickets for the night train between France and Italy, and since 2014, a new Marseille-Milan daytime route. Loco2 offers tickets for all Thello routes via our connection to the Italian rail operator, Trenitalia, with the full range of fares available as "Paperless" tickets - at the same price as buying direct.

Thalys logo

Thalys.com sells tickets on the high-speed line between Paris, Brussels, Cologne and Amsterdam. Loco2 sells Thalys tickets via our connection to Voyages-SNCF. They are competitively priced, after a conversion from EUR to GBP.

Sbb logo

Sbb.ch is the website of the Swiss Federal Railways, the national rail company of Switzerland. It is usallly referred to by the German acronym SBB, but it sometimes referred to in French (CFF) or Italian (FFS). Loco2 sells international tickets to/from Switzerland via connections to Voyages SNCF-UK, Deutsche Bahn and Trenitalia but does not have a direct connection to SBB. International train tickets are competitively priced, but for domestic journeys within Switzerland, cheaper tickets may be available directly from the operator.

Ns international logo

NS.nl is the website of the national operator in the Netherlands, which sells tickets for the Dutch rail network and some international services such as Thalys. Loco2 sells tickets in the Netherlands via connections to Voyages SNCF-UK, Deutsche Bahn and Thalys which are competitively priced. Some domestic tickets are also available as postal tickets from Loco2, but it may be cheaper to buy these directly from the operator.

Sncb europe logo

b-europe.com is the website of SNCB, the national rail operator of Belgium. Loco2 sells many international trains to/from Belgium via connections to Voyages SNCF-UK, Eurostar, Deutsche Bahn and Thalys which are competitively priced.

Idtgv

The trainline

Thetrainline.com is a privately-owned company that is connected to the same ATOC booking system as Loco2 for UK train tickets. Loco2 has the same trains and tickets as The Trainline, but does not charge a booking fee (except for credit cards) so is slightly cheaper. Other independent retailers similar to The Trainline include Redspottedhanky, Raileasy and others.

Rail europe com

Raileurope.com sells tickets in USD on behalf of SNCF in North America. In general, Loco2 offers the same trains and tickets, but prices will vary since their exchange rate tends to inflate prices. Raileurope.com offers delivery of paper tickets to US addresses, which is not offered by Loco2.
