Questions on France Train

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting France in April 2014 and travelling around with an 9-day France Rail Pass that I'm going to purchase.

I have read through the SNCF Velo website about travelling with bike but found the info and FAQ section provided in their website to be quite generic and did not answer my qestions. It will be great if anyone of you could help answer my questions as below:

1) I learnt that a bike can travel for free on TER trains with the train ticket purchased. Does this also apply to France Rail Pass?

2) For TER trains that show a "bicycle" icon in the train details searched in SNCF website, how does the bicycle coach look like? A separate coach specifically for bicycle like those in regional trains in Italy or it shares the same coach with passengers with a designated area for bicycle?

3) For TER trains that have no "bicycle" icon displayed, can I still travel with my bike on it provided I hold it at a corner as not to obstruct the passageway and door? Will this violate the rules?

4) Same question as no. 3 above for CAR trains?

5) Is the France Rail Pass valid for travel on TGV to Geneva from Lyon?

6) Is the reservation fee for all TGV trains fixed at the same price irrespective of the destination and distance travelled?

Thank you in advance.
