Enfant Famille
railcard

The Enfant Famille railcard, a five-year programme created in 2009 at the request of the French State, expired on 29 August 2014. As a result, we are unable to issue or renew this card.

If you hold a valid Enfant Famille railcard, your benefits are still in effect, and you may travel at the Enfant Famille fare on SNCF TGV and Intercités trains requiring booking.


No card?
No problem

Travelling with young children? Whatever their ages, we’ve got special fares to meet your needs and help you stay within your budget.

Children under 4:

  • can have their own seat when you use our Bambin discount

Children ages 4 to 12 qualify for our Enfant fare—half the adult price. (Does not apply to Prem’s fares and limited-time offers.)

If you only take trains occasionally and don’t have a railcard, you can still save on travel with our many special offers:

With our Bambin discount, you can book a seat for your child under 4. It costs only €9* and is valid for one entire leg of your journey, regardless of train type and travel class.
