Voyages-sncf.com – the leading UK-based rail ticket company for Europe – asks this question in their latest video. In it, a number of travelers can be seen trying their damnedest do obtain a ticket for transport by way of chasing a moving bus, unsuccessfully climbing a light pole, and even entering a lion’s den.
The company is looking to make booking rail tickets as simple as possible for travelers. And this video highlights #TheEasyWay to book rail tickets via their call and travel centers, but also through their website. It’s a clever jab at the ridiculous hoops that some travel booking agencies will make their customers jump through just to secure transport tickets.
As anyone who’s ever tried to book transport tickets online (or especially over the phone!) will attest: it can be, well, a nightmare. Complicated schedules, un-navigable websites or automated phone menus, and a boatload of new/added fees just as you’re about to checkout all conspire to make it not only difficult but expensive. Now, Voyages-SNCF.com removes all that frustration and brings simplicity (and dare we say fun) back to travel planning!
