Why may I receive two different Go2RAIL PROMOCODEs in the same email?

If you select an international route, for example from Bologna (Italy) to Lyon (France), you will receive two PROMOCODEs. One is valid to buy a discounted train ticket in one nation (e.g., Italy: Bologna-Turin) and the other is to buy a ticket in the other involved nation (e.g., France, Turn-Lyon). In this case you would need to buy the two tickets separately.
