I'm able to purchase Thalys tickets for our date now but before I purchase I'm wondering about connection times. Does it make more sense to do a direct IC train from Brugge to Antwerpen Central with an hour till the Thalys train departs or plan to take a Brugge to Gent to Antwerp (2 IC trains) with 20 minutes till Thalys connection. Are the connections usually on time and the 2 IC trains no hassle? It will determine which Thalys train I book. Thank you.
