OUR BEST WISHES FOR 2022

Partnership with the TER network – July 31, 2021

In order to develop the tourist attractiveness of the Pays d'Angoulême, encourage eco-mobility and attract new visitors, GrandAngouleme has formalized a partnership with SNCF in connection with its travel offers in TER Nouvelle Aquitaine. 

Since the reopening of line 16, holders of a ticket / e-ticket or subscription SNCF TER Nouvelle-Aquitaine can benefit from preferential rates on visit sites in Angoulême, on presentation of their proof of travel.

Communication media dedicated to the operation will allow travelers to identify partner activities:

– Two brochures distributed mainly in the self-service areas of stations on line 16 (Angoulême-Saintes-Royan): "Want to discover... Angoulême in a different way" with a highlighting of different activities offered in the city of Angoulême, and "Beware of Secrets" which invites you to discover the flagship towns of line 16, including a focus of Angouleme and also available at the tourist information offices of the destination.

– Accessible digital support: an interactive tourist map  on which you will find all the partners and advantages offered.

Feel free to spread this information!
