  • Another Easy Trip |
    "It was so easy to purchase my ticket online in Australia. It was sent out to me by regular mail. At Saumur, my daughter and I verified the ticket in the yellow box (as stated) and got on the train, which was on time. The seat was clean and comfortable and the journey was easy to follow as there is a digital board showing all the stations and where to get off. I would definitely recommend Rail Europe train travel in France. Thumbs up!! "
