Jeune 12-17 railcard: Meet Anne and her children

Anne lives in Paris with her children. With the Jeune railcard, her 15-year-old son can visit his cousins during the holidays and pay only €32 for his Paris-Avignon tickets—and if they book ahead, they can find Prem’s fares for Jeune cardholders priced at just €22. Bottom line: the Jeune card pays for itself in a single return journey.
