Hello Kelly,

Thanks for your question.

Unfortunately there are no direct trains plying in between the two destinations. Book and travel as follows:

- Paris to AntwerpenThalys train.

- Antwerpen to Ypres – Eurocites train.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

thank you Anthony.

I had thought of going Paris- Brussels-Ypres. what are the advantages of Paris-Antwerp-Ypres?

also, I can see how to book the tickets but not how to add that we have a wheelchair passenger. this concerns me as I understand there is a discount on the tickets and we may need direction and assistance at the stations.

Hello Win,

Thanks for your question.

The following information would help you:

Thalys:

Passengers with a disability travelling in a wheelchair have a special seating area reserved in cars 1, 11 and 21. There is more room for the wheelchair and meals are served in place. Specially adapted toilets accessible to wheelchair users able to move themselves onto the toilet seat are available.

Contact Thalys n Tel. +32 2 504 05 00

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Anthony, Rail Europe Travel Expert.

Message from Win Dolan - the above are not related to me re the disability - I believe it refers to someone else - cheers . My question related to regional trains between Lucerne and St. Moritz. Looking forward to any advice on that. Thanks
