Other fares and Interrail reservations

Discounts are available for children, youths (under 26 years), seniors (from 60 years) and small groups.

If you are travelling with a railpass (Interrail or Eurail) you need a seat reservation. 2nd class passes are valid to travel in Standard class. According to our information, 1st class passes are only valid on board of Comfort class unfortunately. This means that you do not get the extra services of Premium class. As always you can find the reservation fares for passholders here.

Buying Tickets

You can buy your ticket for Thalys trains online from NS International (Dutch Railways), B-Europe (Belgian Railways), SNCF (French Railways), Trainline or Thalys.
