Reviews & ratings Paris - Avignon
We had a goog trip from Paris to Avignon. We found our allocated seats without any problem. The signs at the station are very helpful. It would be an improvement if information was also in English as a lot of English speakers used the trains. Train was on time. Toilet on the train was a bit smelly.
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.
The station in Avignon is GREAT, car rental return is handy, but the kiosk to obtain your ticket, if you purchased online, is where I had a problem, it was asking for your name but not your LAST name, so I didn't know not to put my whole name in and it wasn't working, I had to wait in line to get help. I would suggest you change the kiosk prompts to be more clear and specify "last" name. Otherwise I would give very high scores to TGV!!!
Very comfortable, convenient and easy are the best words to describe our trip. It certainly was far easier than flying and much more enjoyable. You had more room and didn't feel as constricted. Flitting from one city to the next but still seeing the country side was a bonus. We had heard that travelling by train was a lot easier than flying now we can see why.
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.
Me and my family are tourist of France, we had a wonderful time in your country, we took the TGV from Avignon to Paris on 1/10/2013. However, we do not know about your first language - French; we only know about English, an international language. We found that there is a big problem on the indication of the compartment number in the platform. Once the train is approached, we noticed that we were standing on the wrong location for entering into a respective compartment, we then keep running to an appropriate location for entering into the train. While we were transferring our luggage from platform to train, the door suddenly started to close without any notification or announcement in English, but only French. We can only use our hands and tried hard to stop closing the door, unfortunately we also found that there is no automatic sensor on the door, the door keep closing even though my luggage was stucked on the middle of the door. As a courteous reminder, please add a clear announcement for your passengers in English on the platform as well as the train, so that everyone can have a clear instruction on what they should do and where they should go. Thank you for your attention.
The TGV was slightly delayed arriving in Lyon. We had two connections further to that which we missed. Arriving in Bourg en Bresse too late for a train to our final destination that evening. The station master and his team were wonderfully helpful and organised us a taxi, at no charge to ourselves to take us to our final destination 60km away. First class service with a smile. 5*'s to the French railways network. We would like to to send them an email if you can supply us with details.
Our family of 4 had a fantastic trip on the TGV. By booking early we got real value for money, the 2nd class seating was great and comfortable as we where seated at four seats with a table and the staff friendly. Would do again as long as we booked early to get the good price. Richard McCormick, New Zealand.
I purchased the tickets on-line it was an easy experience. The whole station experience of boarding and finding the car and seat was easy. I would recommend purchasing on line every time. No difficult validation of tickets required and a good price for advance purchasing
This is my second time to travel to Paris via TGV. First was from Berne, Switzerland and this time from Avignon. Both trips were on time, very smooth, very quiet and was able to sleep/rest. Toilets were clean. Enough space for travellers with suitcases. Very convenient.
I just would like to suggest to show the seat position before reserving the seat on a map because frankly i had to search for mine. Also to give a chance for choice if possible for ones favouring lower or upper seats. thanks
Great trip, with booked seats. Everything on time..
We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.
Comfortable, fast, convenient, and price is also cheap. Very nice experience.
Excellent that I can use my euro pass to take this train. Good experience.
