Journeys : August September 2009
On track for Europe T ouring Europe by high-speed train means hassle-free travelling – there’s no need to navigate foreign roads and road signs, no worries about driving on the other side of the road, no airport check-in queues or security checks. You’re whisked from the centre of one city to the next, so you save on taxi fares to and from airports – and you don’t have to worry about finding parking spaces for your hire car while you’re exploring the cities. Rail Plus recommends TGV trains, which travel at over 300 km/h, as the perfect method to move quickly and efficiently between French cities. They can take you in and out of the heart of each town and city in speed and comfort. For example, you’ll travel from Paris to Avignon in just over two and a half hours instead of driving for seven hours; or from Paris to Bordeaux in just three hours, compared to almost six hours of driving. Taking a trip on a TGV is more than just a train ride, it’s an experience. Read a book, connect to the internet, enjoy a drink in the bar carriage or just sit back, relax and watch the magnificent scenery glide by – it’s a very relaxing way to travel. Rail Plus offers a range of discount fares including ‘book early’ fares on TGV services throughout France and onwards to the rest of Europe. Rail Plus also sells numerous rail passes and sightseeing tours throughout Europe. Please contact your local RACT Travelworld branch or call 1300 368 111 for further details.
