Why buy your TGV tickets on Kombo?

Kombo has the approval SNCF to sell TGV tickets, as a site like SNCF Connect. Buying your ticket on Kombo is the guarantee to pay the best price using a reliable and easy to use service. Why? Why? Because we are committed to finding you the most optimal route at the best price. How do we do it? We are directly connected to SNCF's reservation systems and have our own itinerary engine. On some routes, we can therefore offer cheaper prices. However, keep in mind that ticket prices change every day and that SNCF (and other transport companies) make extensive use of yield management to improve the filling of their trains, buses and planes. This explains why the price of a train can change between two searches.

We could explain why we think Kombo is the best way to book its tickets but we prefer let our customers speak. The best way is to test the service by yourself. Are you ready to go? On the way!
