* Unless expressly stated otherwise, all fares quoted are per person/per leg (VAT included) based on an online reservation for a 2nd class return from Brussels. Please note, terms and conditions apply. Tip: As the number of seats at the lowest fares on Thalys, Eurostar, TGV® and ICE trains is limited, we recommend that you book your trip as early as possible. Most international trains allow reservations to be made from 3 to 4 months before the date of departure (or from 6 months for Eurostar).

Note about the offer for Thalys’ 20th anniversary: from 21 May to 9 June 2016, Thalys is offering an increased, although limited availability of the No-Flex fare in Comfort 2 (2nd class) – a fare which is non-exchangeable and non-refundable. Prices depend on the Thalys route. For instance, a single Thalys ticket in Comfort 2 at the No-Flex fare costs €19 between Brussels and Cologne, €29 between Brussels and Paris and €29 between Brussels and Amsterdam. All Thalys fares can be consulted at the SNCB Europe international product info sheets (instructions to the attention of the sales staff).
