Am I in the same compartment as my traveling companions?

The berth numbers are following each other but not always in the same compartment or cabin. To find out if you are in the same compartment or the same cabin as your traveling companions, take a look at the layout here.

Be careful to select the layout relative to the chosen class comfort: 6 couchettes compartment, 4 couchettes compartment or bed cabins.

The cabins can accommodate up to three passengers. If you chose a 1 or 2 beds cabin for one or two persons, you have the same cabin for your exclusive use.

My reservation

What is a PNR?

The PNR is the 6 characters reference of your booking.

Reservations made on are ticketless, you do not need a ticket to board the train. Simply provide your PNR as well as your car and seat number to the Thello crew on board to justify your booking. All this information is indicated on the email confirmation you received after booking.

Thus there is no ticket to be retrieved at the station.

For the record, please print the confirmation email that was sent to your email address when booking. It contains all the important information regarding your trip.

Can I change or cancel my ticket?

Depending on the fare you have chosen, tickets may be changed or cancelled under certain conditions. Consult our general conditions of sale.


From any page of the website you can access your reservations made on by clicking on "My bookings". Enter the email address used for the reservation and the PNR code to access the details of your reservation.


In this area, you can change and cancel your ticket if the fare conditions allow it or get a copy of your confirmation email.


If you booked your ticket through web agencies, travel agencies or Tour Operators, you must submit directly to them your request.

After confirming your payment, you should receive two confirmation emails:

  • payment confirmation
  • booking confirmation with the PNR.
