Customer reviews

  • "Great Deal"    
    It was a great deal my trip, very convenient, however I should improve the way you mark the cars in the stations, it is a little difficult to understand in which car is located your seat  
  • "excellent as usual"    
    on time, comfirtable  
  • "Just Okay"    
    Finding the coach number is not that easy... and to think that i had to carry my luggage up through the stairs of the station. But i think it's okay, it was all part of the experience.  
  • "Convenient and efficient"    
    We are satisfied with the rail system in the Netherlands in general.  
  • "Value for money and convenient"    
    Not much comments, it's easy and convenient  
  • "Tgv"    
    This trip was perfect  
  • "Comfy"    
    Not too many people, so it was a nice smooth ride. Lots of space to sit and put your luggage bags.  
  • "Satisfactory journey"    
    I along with my daughter travelled from Paris Airport - Lyon - Grenoble. The trains are nice and comfortable.  
  • "Very convenient and efficient"    
    It was a good, fast and convenient way to travel with lovely countryside to view out the windows. Easy to purchase tickets online and to find the right platform at the station. Train was perfectly on time.  
  • "Easy and comfortable"    
    Trains were clean and tidy. Ran on time and smoothly.  
  • "Excellent way to travel"    
    We took the train from Paris to Lyon and had no hassles at all you need to note your carriage number on the ticket. Since you have only 20 mins from the platform number going up on the board and actual boarding you need to keep your wits about you. In all its a very good option in France and we'd definitely do it again.  
  • "Cheap and most convenient mode"    
    It is the best mode of travelling in France. Travelled both in First and Second class, a comfortable ride. Use TGV trains for time saving and local TER trains for money saving.  
  • "Change is good"    
    We changed to a direct train to Geneve so we did not have to wait in Bourg en Bresse. The agent at the counter in Lyon was very cordial, and in broken English was able to let us know we could do this without having to get new tickets printed. Love the trains in France!  
  • "A very convenient journey"    
    The train from Lyon to Roanne is very convenient.  
  • "End of a holiday"    
    We required to drop our rental at Lyon and get to Paris. The TGV is always on time and very comfortable. The restaurant serves good fast food and it is in itself a great place to actually enjoy the ride from. We usually travel downstairs on the TGV but this time we were upstairs and it is much easier to watch the world go by being a little higher.
