Save up to £70 on Snow Train return fares to the French Alps.

The snow is falling throughout the Alps and Christmas is on its way, so what better gift to your skiing loved one than a trip on the Rail Europe Snow Train? And with new special offers giving savings of up to £70 on a return journey, Rail Europe can help you to beat the credit crunch.

  •     Departing 6th February '09: Original Fare £249, New Fare £179 = Saving of £70

Leaving early on Friday evening from London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet International, the Snow Train travels overnight to the French Alps via Paris, arriving early on Saturday morning. With return trains leaving on the following Saturday evening, Snow Train passengers can gain an extra two days on the slopes.

For those looking to hit the slopes early, the Snow Train offers flat bed sleeping accommodation, whilst those wanting to start their après ski early can party their way to the Alps in the bar disco carriage.

In addition to the extra time on the slopes and the stress free journey, passengers on the Snow Train can travel with a clear conscience, knowing that rail travel is a more environmentally sustainable way to travel than flying.
