Paris to Bordeaux by Train – First Class for 29 Euros!
Every once in a while, France’s train service comes up with some enticing offers such as traveling to Bordeaux in the height of the summer season for as little as 29 Euros in a First Class compartment.
I checked out the SNCF site for available tickets and this is not a ‘bait & switch offer’ – this one is for real (if you act quickly, of course).
Here are the sale dates: July 16 to August 26, 2008
You need to book your tickets BEFORE August 19th. Note that one-way first class tickets START at 29 Euros – depending on the dates and time of day, the prices will very – but I did see some 29 Euro tickets for early trains on weekdays.
