Half a million train tickets are now available for €19 maximum in a new flash sale for Ouigo services by French train operator SNCF. The sale began yesterday and ends today (September 7).

SNCF is selling 500,000 tickets at low prices, for journeys to more than 50 destinations across France, including Bordeaux, Lyon, Chartres, Dijon, Rennes, Nantes, Nice, Montpellier, Marseille, Paris, and Avignon. 

The journeys must be made between September 12 and December 10.

Only single journeys (or the ‘outward’ journey for a return) tickets are covered by this flash sale. None of the tickets will be sold for more than €19 each.

The low-cost tickets are available until the end of today (September 7) on the Ouigo website. Credit: Screenshot /

  • Paris-Nantes: From €10

  • Paris-Rennes: From €10

  • Paris-Lyon: From €10

Ouigo is SNCF’s low-cost, high-speed TGV service (as opposed to its higher-end, faster inOui TGV trains). The Ouigo brand also rolled out normal-speed services in March this year, and launched the service with even cheaper tickets at the time (with 300,000 seats on sale for €5).
