RAIL TICKETS FOR INTERCITY, INTERREGIO AND LOCAL TRAINS

There are a variety of InterCity (IC), InterRegio (IR) and local trains in the SNCB train services which travel across the border. These trains constitute an ideal supplement to the high-speed trains and perfectly complement domestic train services in Belgium and our neighbouring countries. In this way you can easily reach all corners of the country by train. 

You do not need to reserve a seat on these trains: all you need is a ticket for the route to be travelled on the desired date. With this ticket in hand, you can take the train you want at the time you want to take it. This is why there is no departure or arrival time indicated on your ticket for an InterCity, InterRegio or local train.

It does not matter whether you are travelling with an IC, IR or local train. The number of changes you make is of no importance: you can use your ticket to take a direct train or change several times along the way (in Belgium or abroad), as long as you:

  • Follow the route which is indicated on your ticket
  • Travel on the date indicated
  • Observe all terms and conditions for the purchased fare

Please note: if you take a train with a required surcharge or seat reservation (such as Thalys) for part of your route or for the entire route, you must pay this surcharge in addition to the price of your ticket. Therefore, always verify which type of train you are taking when consulting the timetables.
