The Irish travel trade can now find extensive information on European rail travel and make bookings on behalf of their clients via the new dedicated trade website.

Voyages-sncf.eu provides a powerful, flexible distribution network adapted to the needs of Europe’s ever evolving travel trade. In addition to the new site, Irish agents can also benefit from the support of a team of experienced sales managers and executives, based at the UK head office in Kent, as well as a helpdesk for online bookings.

To help agents develop their knowledge and expertise in European rail travel, an E-Learning platform will be launched by the end of the month, featuring an informative and fun series of modules, which will test their knowledge of European destinations, train operators, routes and travel styles .

Paul Lacey, Head of Trade Sales at Voyages-sncf UK said “In 2012, Irish residents took 6.6 million outbound trips, with 86% of those being to other European countries. Launching in Ireland is a great opportunity for us to reach a new audience and to introduce them to European rail travel and its many benefits.”

Although the majority of Irish travellers will start their holiday with a flight, the train can be a great way to travel once in mainland Europe. Whether from the airport to their final destination or for touring, train travel is quick, efficient and now easy and straightforward to book.

Voyages-sncf.eu features thousands of routes from some of Europe’s top high speed carriers allowing agents to build itineraries tailored to their client’s needs. With print at home or collect at the station ticketing options, travel details and tickets can be emailed directly to the customer, increasing the efficiency of the overall booking process.

Voyages-sncf.eu offers its users access to an integrated network, linking tens of thousands of European cities, towns and villages. High-speed trains travel at speeds of up to 320km per hour, with passengers travelling in spacious and comfortable surroundings from city centre to city centre, negating the need for long and costly transfers, lengthy check in times and stringent security checks.
