Save Up to 60% Off Paris-Geneva TGV Train by Booking Early With Rail Europe

WHITE PLAINS, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 7, 2005 -- Now you can save up to 60% off one-way travel on France's famous TGV* trains running between Paris-Geneva if you purchase tickets early from Rail Europe here before leaving for Europe.

The new "Book Early" range of fares is available in both 1st and 2nd class in either direction for one-way travel and must be purchased at least 14 days before the rail journey. There are a limited number of Book Early tickets available on each train between Paris' Gare de Lyon and Geneva. This is a new fare range with four price categories.

Book Early fares start at $32 US/$42 CAD one-way in 2nd class (compared to the standard fare of $87US/$114 CAD) and $63 US/$83 CAD in 1st (compared to $123 US/$ 162 CAD). Roundtrip fares are double the one-way fares. When the lowest Book Early fare is sold out, the traveler receives the next highest Book Early fare.

The journey from Paris-Geneva by TGV takes 3 hours, 33 minutes, and there are seven departures in each direction daily.
