The French train operator SNCF has launched the “Happy Card”, designed for regular users of the TGV service. Costing €79 per month, the discount is for regular users of the service aged between 16 and 27. Users must join up for a minimum of three months, and the scheme gets underway from January 19. Booking is obligatory.

The 975-kilometre journey from Nice to Paris lasts almost six hours, due to a long slower section from Nice to Marseille, and some routes might not be available to Happy Card holders, according to SNCF.

The non-stop Paris to Lyon section takes just two hours.
