BARCELONA - Renfe-SNCF en Coopération reestablishes, from July 1, the international high-speed rail services between Spain and France with two daily frequencies in both directions that will connect the cities of Barcelona, Girona and Figueres with the French cities of Perpignan, Narbonne, Béziers, Agde, Sète, Montpellier, Nimes, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Valence and Paris.
In response to the current health situation due to Covid-19, Renfe-SNCF en Coopération is implementing a protocol that emphasises both social responsibility and the protection of the health and interests of travellers and employees, thus guaranteeing safety both on the trains and in the stations.
Travelling safely on board
Both Renfe and SNCF have started the certification processes imposed in each country involving the protocols for cleaning and disinfecting trains so as to prevent COVID and ensure that their services are provided under the safest and highest hygienic-sanitary guarantees.
These protocols are intended to guarantee maximum safety whenever a traveller comes into contact with the companies’ services before, during and after the journey.
The goal is to offer passengers every guarantee when travelling so they can feel confident in resuming their train travel habits, a key aspect to successfully face the return to the new normal.
All passengers and crew are required to wear masks while on the train. Likewise, for health reasons, restaurant services are currently not being provided on board.
The schedule of international trains between Spain and France will be expanded as demand increases. Renfe-SNCF en Coopération trains that are currently in circulation are available for bookings and sales for every summer month. Any news and expanded schedules or new destinations will be communicated as needed.
