Special first class rail fares to France until August 31st

Just seen this article on the excellent Rightmove Overseas blog.

The sharp-eyed author has seen that Rail Europe are offering special 1st class fares from the UK to entice holiday makers onto the rail network.

Travel dates between July 13th and August 31st can be booked, with the tickets able to be purchased through until August 27th.

Travelling by rail from London to Angouleme is most enjoyable and it's easy to pick up a hire car at the station with Avis, Europcar and a host of other suppliers.

Hi, Noticed recently that first class is often cheaper to standard class if you are booking at short notice!

Alison's trip back to UK was first class and the price was only a small difference.

Hi, thanks for this Graham. I'll look into it for my first single-handed trip back from the UK with Sébastien later in the month. Might make the "challenge" a little easier!
