When you digitize1, your smartphone can hold all your SNCF travel documents—e-tickets, your Avantage or Liberté card, or your Forfait or MAX pass. No more worries about forgetting or losing your ticket. When the conductor comes by, simply present your QR code or PDF.

PDF or QR code?

Ready to go digital? Choose from 2 options:

  • Store your Liberté or Avantage card (Jeune, Senior or Adulte) on your smartphone as a PDF file and present it along with your ID. (A PDF version of your card is attached to the email confirming your purchase.)
  • Digitize your card or pass and present a QR code when your e-ticket is checked.

How to digitize your card or pass

There are 3 ways to digitize your card or pass:

  • your Mon Espace TGV INOUI account
  • the Assistant SNCF app
  • the TGV INOUI Pro app

Simply follow the instructions below for your card (Avantage or Liberté) or pass (MAX or weekly or monthly Forfait).
