According to easier.com travel magazine you cannot drink champagne on France’s famed TGV, the ‘Train à Grande Vitesse’ is the fastest way to travel to more than 1400 destinations in Europe.
Train travellers in France can reach the Champagne region, city of Reims from Paris in just 45 minutes, Avignon in 2 hours 40 minutes and Lyon and Bordeaux in around 3 hours.
TGV trains also connect France with Belgium, Switzerland and Germany where passengers can continue their journey with other European high-speed services.
On board passengers can choose between First and Standard Class and the newest trains have been designed by French fashion creator Christian Lacroix. Seats are spacious and have armrests and legroom is generous – even in Standard class. .
First Class seating offers extra legroom and larger seats that recline electronically and passengers looking for some peace and privacy can book solo seats.
For those who need to work with colleagues there is the option to book two adjoining seats or even a Club space, for groups of two or four people.
On most trains (but not all services), passengers can enjoy a light meal served in seat with a complimentary travel pack containing a stain-removal kit, a phone charger and even a sleeping-kit.
A taxi reservation service is also available on-board specific TGV trains (Lille, Paris- Nantes, Paris – Rennes and Paris – Nice).
