From Saturday (10 December), Belgian railway company SNCB is launching its 'Winter Promo Ticket,' which offers a 50% discount on a round trip with a regular ticket until the week after New Year's.
The Winter Promo Ticket is valid on weekdays between 10 December 2022 and 8 January 2023 for roundtrips on the same day between two stations in Belgium, in both first and second class.
"The Winter Promo Ticket is the perfect formula for those who want to spend a day shopping, visiting family or friends, or just getting out and about during the Christmas holidays," the company said in a press release on Wednesday. "In short, the ideal opportunity to just hop on the train, reach your destination easily and not waste time looking for a parking space."

Children up to 12 years old already travel free if they are accompanied by an adult. With this initiative, SNCB aims to attract new travellers and increase the proportion of journeys made by train, with the ambition to grow the number of rail passengers by 30% by 2032.
The Winter Promo Ticket is on sale from today (Wednesday 7 December) via the SNCB app, on the website, at ticket machines and at ticket counters.
