I’m confused

Wheelies in France!

I'm in a wheelchair and intend to travel in France this summer. Reading the SNCF website, I see that disabled passengers with more than 80% disability are allowed discounts on production of their invalidity card, but here in the UK we don't have such a thing, just the right to the highest level of benefit for care and travel - which I have. Any ideas how I can get around this?

    Hi Jamie,

    Trains do have space designated for wheelchairs; however, reservations for this space can only be purchased locally in Europe. We are the North American-based seller of tickets, and the actual rail networks in Europe have not granted us access to book these accommodations.

    As it is, we are only able to book wheelchair space on 2 trains: the Eurostar (the high-speed train that connects London and either Paris or Brussels) and the Thalys (the high-speed train that connects Paris with certain hubs in the Belgium and the Netherlands or Cologne). I'm very sorry for any inconvenience.
