The TER & SNCF Network

The TER train system is a regional network of trains with over 126 railway stations, making it easy to get to coastal areas of Brittany like Saint Malo and the Mont-Saint Michel in a short amount of town.

Traveling outside of Brittany can be easily done by booking a TGV through the SNCF service, France’s network of high-speed trains. From the Rennes train station, for example, you can access one of the many trains that go to Paris each day - now just a 90 minute trip! The TGV also offers rail travel, French style, to more than 230 destinations in 15 countries. Book your tickets online and receive them by email and print them out, or just use the SNCF app on your smartphone or tablet, and off you go!
