You can take advantage of our iDAVIS package with any train requiring reservations, and rentals are available at nearly 230 stations in France and the rest of Europe.

And if your train arrives after the local Avis agency has closed, one of our staff will be on hand to give you the keys to your car. This complimentary service is offered to all SNCF customers, whether you use our prepaid iDAVIS offer or pay at the Avis agency when you pick up your vehicle(3).

If you hold an SNCF loyalty card, you’re guaranteed a 15% discount, and you can add one of these options free of charge: an infant or child seat, an additional driver, or a GPS (subject to availability). If you’re a Grand Voyageur Plus or Grand Voyageur Le Club cardholder, or if you have a Pro or Fréquence ticket, you’re also entitled to an upgrade—guaranteed.
