Reviews & ratings Paris - Lyon
We booked the train long in advance. We chose the "Print at Home" option. When we tried to print it initially the website could not be accessed. On contacting RailEurope a .pdf file of the ticket was e-mailed. We printed the .pdf file and all was well except that the Coach and Seat number was printed on top of each other making it illegible. An e-mail to the local agent about the matter stayed un-answered. A phone call to the same person a few weeks later confirmed the correct seat information but no correction of the faulty .pdf file. We were basically told to live with it. We did and the ticket was accepted by TGV
Paris to Lyon: TGV is the only way to travel. It is convenient, comfortable, quiet, spacious and reasonably priced. What more can one say?
We bought our tickets online before our trip, as it was essential for our itinerary. We had no problems whatsoever. We arrived at CDG airport, and “fairly” easily located the TGV train station. We had our tickets stamped at the ticket office as we bought the TGV tickets with a 5-day France Pass, which we also had validated at the same time. When the train arrived, we located our coach, put our luggage in the back of the coach and located our seats. It was comfortable and clean. Because of the comfort provided, it was a good time to catch up on lost sleep. I’ll do it again for essential trips. It takes the “worry” out of buying tickets and more importantly, if seats will be available.
Was an extremely efficient way of travelling to the snow. Was easy although we spoke no French. I had unfortunaely misplaced by boarding passes. Although all seemed hopless for a long while and it appeared we would have to purchase 3 new first class tickets, the manager on that day had organised for replacement tickets at the last minute when boarding the train. This was much appreciated.
With little signs in english on the train platform it was slightly hard to find my way around, but it was manageable. Trains were comfortable.
The stations and train platforms were easy to find - journey was also very comfortable
Travelled by trains (second class) from Paris to Lyon as well as from Lyon to Geneva during our recent holiday in Europe. Both the journeys were pleasant. Will certainly use the trains to travel within Europe in the future
Not so bad. Is quickly
French, I used to travel by train, the ticket was expensive, but I had no choice. Train on time, good point. But there is not enough space for luggage. From a station at the airport, they know that people have a lot of luggage.
had good rides
It was a comfortable journey using a very convenient mode of travel. Euro Rail journey gives more freedom and is hassle free. It was real fun and value for money.
This train was stopped at a station before it reached St Malo due to a problem with the track ahead. We were kept sitting in the train for some time - at least half an hour - before suddenly everyone started getting off. We do not speak French and struggled to understand what was going on. We collected our luggage and followed other passengers to the Bus Station where we again waited some time - at least 20 minutes - before buses came to transport us the rest of the journey to St Malo. We had to ask staff to explain what was happening in English as there was little consideration for passengers who did not speak French. Water was handed to passengers as they embarked on the buses. We were especially disappointed as we only had a little more than 24 hours to spend in St Malo and lost at least 1 1/2 hours of that time because of the additional travel time caused by the delay. We were handed forms to fill in to receive compensation for the inconvenience caused but have yet to establish if we will have part of the cost of the fare reimbursed. We appreciated the fact this was offered.
Awesome trip, best prices if you book way ahead. My advice: don't hesitate to book the tickets the minute they become available. Prices can grow quickly. Pleasent journey, good comfort, good seats, although we would have liked to be able to choose them and to face the direction in which the train was moving. Instead, we had rear facing seats but the big window provided a bit of sightseeing.
we use the TGV to Avignon TVG then bus to Avignon Centre. have to pay bus fee even the web indicated it was a transfer. no big deal on money but confusion when communicating with the bus driver.
