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:
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.
In addition to the standard fare, there are various special fares available to everyone, depending on which country you travel to.
When you travel to the Netherlands, you can, for instance, enjoy the NS SuperDayReturn fare. When you travel to Luxembourg, you can enjoy the Escapade fare. The Benelux Youth (for travellers aged under 26) and Benelux Weekend fares are valid for journeys to the Netherlands as well as for journeys to Luxembourg. For an excursion to Lille during the weekend, you can enjoy the Trampoline Weekend fare, and so on ….

Do you live close to the border? There are also specific travel formulas for short routes across the border. These are valid for regular journeys (subscriptions) as well as occasional journeys (tickets).
Do you have a Railplus international reduction card? Then you receive a 25% reduction on your entire journey (25% off the standard fare).
Do you have a discount card valid on SNCB (Belgian Rail) trains (e.g. card for Large Families or a card for Preferential Reimbursement)? Then you can also enjoy your national reduction for the Belgian portion of an international route with an InterCity, InterRegio or local train.
