France: SNCF Starts Service Soon on Deep Discounted TGV Trains

Jump to last reply

The SNCF - the French National Railways will put into service its rock-bottom discount TGVs - called Ouigo - a play perhaps on the English 'we go now' - with tickets as low as 19 euro from Paris to initially TGV stations of the country's most popular line - the Paris to Avignon, Arles, Montpelier and also to Aix-en-Provence and Marseille to start with.
So now when checking for the cheapst high-speed train to fit your needs check not only www.voyages-sncf.com - the old French Railways ,main site but also http://www.sncf.com/en/trains/ouigo - as well as www.igTGV.com though ouigo may be replacing idTGV>

Anyway book up to 3 months early and travel for a fraction of full fare - but these are train-specific and non-refundable I do believe.

Plane & Train complicates non-refundable tickets a bit as you never know exactly when you plane will land and your baggages come around on the carousel - so you have to leave fudge factor time in in case planes are late but then if they are you are left twiddling your thumbs a few hours but at least will not miss the train you have a non-changeable non-refundable ticket booked on and then after still have to buy a full-fare ticket to get to your destination.

Book your ducats now at the official ouigo site.
Bon Voyage!
