My experience with purchasing TGV tickets

Jump to last reply

We will be traveling from the Avignon TGV station to Marne a Vallee on Saturday June 28 at 12:45, There are two of us. The earliest that tickets are available for purchase is on March 28. However, 00:05 March 28 in France is 16:05 March 27 (yesterday) in California where we live, France goes on daylight savings time this coming weekend.

After wrestling for a decade with the SNCF site, I tried the Capitane site. World of difference - much better. I managed to purchase tickets for two people for 90E total.

Here is a little history:
- For several days preceding March 27 in Calif, I kept track of fares. At around 00:30 France time, the fares for travel on Tues June 24 & Wed the 25th were 90E - and are still 90E today. On Thurs the 26th PREMS jumped to 128E and are still 128E. On Friday the 27th, there were no PREMS available, and the losier fares were 274E and are still 274E.

- On June 28 (our date of travel) at 00:07 I booked 90E fares total for two. I checked at 00:20 and the PREM fares had jumped to 128E. At 01:00 both the SNCF & Capitane sites were not operating properly. At 06:00 the PREMS were gone, & only losier fares for 228E were available. At 14:00 the losier fares had jumped to 238E for two.

Just thought you might like to know!!!
