I just went on to the tgv.com site yesterday to help out a a friend and I am not very impressed with the interface changes. Really hard to find stuff I think! Has anybody else been having issues? I used to start off there but now I will just go to http://www.voyages-sncf.com directly.

That said it looks like they are going more and more in the direction of "e-tickets for all" which a good thing I think.

I have never used the TGV website, it doesn't serve any purpose as far as I'm concerned if you can use the voyages-sncf.com one The only people I thought used it were those who didn't know French.

If you know French, why would you ever use the tgv.com site?

If you want to book in English and get the same discount fares as on voyages-sncf.com, use tgv-europe.com. (It's not the same as tgv.com.) To keep the site in English and to avoid being bumped to the Rail Europe site which doesn't offer discount fares, choose Great Britain as your country of residence.

I used to use the tgv.com site to check hours and even as a pass through to the voyage site (I do speak french and do book on voyages-sncf), but now they have made it impossible to do that at all easily-so I agree it doesn't serve any purpose anymore. It was just easier to type the tgv.com than voyages-sncf.com I guess-lazy typist
