rail travel in France

Hi All

I've been checking out discount cards for rail travel and am a little confused. Can someone please confirm whether the SNCF Escapades card only gets discounts on rail journeys on weekends, and on distances of at least 200k? It sure looks that way to me.
If this is the case, does anyone know of any other discount rail cards for those in their 30's? Thanks.:)

Yes, it seems that you're right:
La Carte Escapades est destinée aux personnes ayant entre 26 et 59 ans ; les réductions sont valables pour tout aller-retour de plus de 200 km effectué sur la journée du samedi ou sur celle du dimanche, ou comprenant une nuit du samedi au dimanche sur place.
...people between 26-59 years: the reductions are valid for all return trips of more than 200km made on Satudays and Sundays during the day, or including a Saturday night through to Sunday (if the train goes through the night).

You also earn miles (s'mile points) for each euro you spend, which you can use as they accumulate.

These are the only cards there are:
- Child
- 12-25 years
- Senior 60+
- Escapades
You could be right Bev :) Frankly the conditions are a bit confusing, to the point that my hubby wasn't even sure what was meant !
