France, rail pass or individual tickets confusion.

Jump to last reply

I will need these train ticket on an upcoming trip:-

Lyon to Strasbourg
Strasbourg to Dijon
Dijon to Beaune to Dijon (this will be a day trip)
Dijon to Avignon
Avignon to Marseille to Avignon (this will be a day trip)
Avignon to Geneva

I know not to book with Rail Europe unless I require a rail pass. Is it better for me to book a rail pass or individual tickets? I can't price tickets out for when I need to travel as those fares aren't available as yet (fares and tickets are only available 90 days in advance).

I'm very confused as to how a France rail pass works, I understand I need to purchase the rail pass and pay a supplement for the TGV trains and it's best to do that at the time of booking. Do I need to book any TER trains I will take at the time of booking?

Also, as I will travel in November, how can I check train schedules? Is there a difference between summer and winter schedules?

Any advice of which is best, the rail pass or individual tickets will be appreciated. Thanks.
