New Fare Offers 33% Discount to Adult Traveling With Child on High-Speed France-Geneva Train


WHITE PLAINS, NY -- 12/16/2004 -- A new “Kids & Co” fare for adults accompanying children under 12 is being offered on high-speed TGV* trains between France and Geneva, Switzerland, offering a 33% discount off the regular 2nd class adult fare, according to an announcement by Rail Europe Group, leading North American supplier of European rail tickets and passes. This is a permanent new fare, not a limited time promotion, and valid for travel anytime.

The new Kids & Co fare is priced at $58 US/$80 CAD one-way between Paris-Geneva in 2nd class, just one dollar more than the child’s fare. Normally a full-fare adult ticket in 2nd class costs $87 US/$120 CAD. For each child under 12, two adults may purchase this Kids & Co fare.

While there is one 2nd class adult fare that is lower (“Book Early, Tier 1” for $50 US/$69 CAD) than this new fare, it has limited availability and is not exchangeable or refundable. The Kids & Co fare is 100% exchangeable and refundable up to 3 days prior to the train’s departure date.

“Trains are a wonderful way for families with children to travel,” notes Fabrice Morel, President of the Rail Europe Group. “This new fare makes it more affordable to take this exciting, scenic train between France and Switzerland.”

Eight TGVs daily travel between Paris and Geneva, taking 3 1/2 hours to make the journey.
