Going Going Gone Thalys Special From Rail Europe

White Plains, New York, January 21, 2009 – Rail Europe’s Going Going Gone Thalys Special offers 50% off one-way regular fare tickets on most Thalys train routes. This high-speed train connects the European cities of Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Cologne. And now, there’s something else uniting them - the opportunity to save significant money visiting all of them. Tickets must be booked on, by February 28, 2009 for travel through March 31, 2009.

Thalys offers you the opportunity to connect to as many as 17 cities with over 50 round trips a day. It takes just 90 minutes to go from downtown Paris to downtown Brussels, making the service convenient as well as fast.

Rail Europe’s North American sales of high speed trains increased by +5% in 2008 compared to the previous year. The growth clearly demonstrates the growing popularity of trains as the fast, convenient and socially responsible mode of transportation for visitors to Europe.
