You are not leaving from Brussels, Antwerp or Liège? For a small extra fee, you can purchase the All Belgian Stations (ABS) fare to extend your journey with a connecting train between the departure or arrival station of your Thalys train and another Belgian station. For this connecting journey, you can use any train on the SNCB national network.
For journeys departing from Belgium, your ABS ticket is valid as of the day before your Thalys journey so you can get to your Thalys station. For journeys to Belgium, you can continue your journey beyond your Thalys station with your ABS ticket until the day after the Thalys journey.
