Can you already see yourself driving along the scenic roads at your next holiday destination?

Why not rent a car when you book your train ticket? Our iDAVIS service is available in over 230 stations in France and Europe—and our partner Avis(1) will give you a 10% discount on your rental car—guaranteed. If you find a cheaper offer, Avis will refund double the difference. (2)

Your car will be waiting when you arrive. If the Avis agency has closed, an SNCF employee will be on hand to give you your contract and the keys to your car. We provide this complimentary service is offered to all SNCF customers, whether you use our prepaid iDAVIS offer or pay at the Avis agency when you pick up your vehicle(3).

And if you're an SNCF railcard holder, you’ll pay 15% less* than the Avis France rate—all year long, for all prepaid locations(4). Guaranteed. If you find a cheaper offer, Avis will refund double the difference. Do you have a Jeune 18-27 railcard? With iDAVIS, you can rent a car starting from age 19 instead of 21 as long as you’ve had a permit for a full year.

If you hold an SNCF loyalty card, you’re guaranteed to get a 15% discount—and you can add one of these options free of charge: an infant or child seat, an additional driver, or a GPS (subject to availability). And if you’re a Grand Voyageur Plus or Grand Voyageur Le Club cardholder, or if you have a Pro or Fréquence ticket, you’re guaranteed to get an upgrade.

TGV Air

Just arrived on a flight from abroad and need to reach a destination outside the Paris area? Or perhaps you’ve been touring in one of France’s regions and need to catch an international flight? With our TGV Air offer, you can buy a single ticket for international air travel plus a TGV high-speed journey before or after your flight. This service is available to and from 19 French provincial cities(1) plus Brussels, for flights into and out of Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. (Orly is served by the Massy TGV station.)

When you choose TGV Air, you enjoy:

  • a combined ticket with built-in savings
  • a high-speed TGV train selected by your airline for a seamless air-rail connection
  • assistance if there’s a delay or cancellation
  • loyalty points with select airlines
  • a single booking for your journey
  • a wide range of destinations

If your journey begins with a TGV, you must check in at the TGV Air window of your departure station at least 20 minutes before the train’s scheduled departure. An SNCF employee will issue your ticket and check you in for your connecting international flight. For security reasons, you must check your luggage at the airport.

If your flight is the first leg of your journey, you must collect your luggage before you check in at the TGV Air window at Charles de Gaulle airport or at the Massy TGV station (for Orly). An SNCF employee will give you your TGV ticket. Tickets issued at TGV Air windows may not be exchanged or refunded.
