  • "Inconvenient"    
    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.  
  • "Wonderful experitnce"    
    We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.  
  • "Unreasonable reservation fee"    
    With the France Rail Pass, I can't believe I have to spend another HKD 400 for 2-seats reservation. The reservation fee policy actually limited my choice of train for France Rail Pass - if I took all the travel on TGV, the total cost for Rail Pass reservation is even higher than buying individual tickets. Please could you consider a bit from customer perspective.  
  • "get the tickets"    
    Could not get the tickets at automatic counters (missing ticket codes on confirmation of reservation). Long queue at the counter.  
  • "Not bad but very expensive!"    
    I like the TGVs; they're fast and really nice and clean. Unfortunately, if you don't speak French, you'll have a hard time understanding what's going on, as all the tickets, signage and announcements over the loudspeaker are in French. I do speak some French so it was ok but it was still a bit confusing. For example, I had two suitcases with me, one HUGE and heavy, and I had to sit down. I found a seat in a really nice carriage, but soon after the ticket man told me, in French, I was in first class not second class (I'm pretty sure that's what he said). I didn't know if I should move or not, and it was pretty obvious I didn't really understand. So i stayed put, with all my luggage, and no one made me move. Also, it's so expensive!! More expensive that flying, in some cases. I would use the trains more if they weren't so exorbitantly overpriced. But they're clean, fast and reliable so I can't really complain. But be warned- learn some relevant French words before catching a TGV to save yourself some confusion!
