How can I show my subscription during an on-board ticket check?
When you travel on one of our trains, you may be asked to provide your Thalys number, or to present your Thalys TheCard card. These verifications take place:
- when checking the tickets before accessing the train
- during the welcome at the door
- during the trip
If you cannot prove that you have ThePass subscription, the Train Manager will apply the “on-board fare”, i.e. the price of the reference fare for the relevant comfort class plus an additional €25.
