Created in 1995, Thalys is the network of four rail companies - SNCF (France), SNCB (Belgium), DB (Germany) and NS (Netherlands).

Comfort One catering, regardless of the meal, is included in the price while Comfort Two passengers can avail themselves of sandwiches, breakfasts, coffee/tea and chocolates in Bar Coach where all travellers can also purchase Metro tickets for Brussels, Paris and Amsterdam, thereby avoiding queues at ticket machines at the city gateway stations.

Attendants in Comfort One act like a hotel concierge by organising a waiting taxi at the destination, for a small fee. Some 80,000 taxis were booked this way last year while 75,000 public transport tickets were sold at the bars!
