Our offer
for business

Need to organize a seminar, hold a media event or celebrate an important date for your business? There are so many reasons to give your guests, employees and customers an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience. Why not host your next event on board a train?

We offer fast, safe, comfortable, eco-friendly travel backed by a selection of premium services. Charter your own private coach—or even an entire TGV high-speed train—to suit the size of your group and the nature of your event.

Your private coach
Is your group smaller than 300 people? With our dedicated offer for business groups, you can charter one or more private coaches on an existing train, then add extras and services especially for your event.

TGV Événementiel
Will you have more than 300 guests? Choose our TGV Événementiel offer and charter your own TGV high-speed train. We’ll customize it and deliver dedicated services to make the event a success for your employees, current and future customers, and/or media contacts. Whether you're holding a seminar, launching a product or organizing a corporate communications event, we can provide:

  • a TGV from Paris or another French city to a variety of destinations, with room for at least 300 guests
  • an entire TGV exclusively for your event, with a red carpet, a private platform, and hostesses to greet your guests in the station
  • customization of space on board, with your choice of colours and dedicated areas for your chosen activities
  • an extensive range of catering options, available in the café-bar or served to your guests at their seats
  • on-board activities and announcements broadcast throughout your entire TGV Événementiel train

Support services

Whether you charter a single coach or an entire high-speed TGV train, we’re pleased to offer a range of additional fee-based services to make your event smooth and successful from door to door.

Hospitality and catering
We can provide hostesses to greet your group in the station or at the entrance to your private coach, on departure and/or arrival. This offer can be combined with special catering services.

Door-to-door luggage service
This service ensures that the luggage for your entire group is delivered to your final destination. We’ll take charge of your luggage(1) at your pick-up point and deliver it all to a single address of your choice, anywhere in France, within 48 hours(2).

(1) Suitcases, duffels, soft-sided bags, and trunks with two handles are acceptable for this service. No item may exceed 30 kg or combined dimensions of 2.5 metres.
(2) Does not include Saturday, Sunday, bank holidays or days when the competent authority does not allow rail traffic. These days are added to the delivery time.

Baggage handling service
If you’d rather keep your luggage with you, consider our baggage handling service, available in some large stations. When you arrive at the station, your bags and suitcases are picked up at your coach or meeting point and transferred to the right coach in your train, making it easier for you to manage your group.

Coach services
We can also arrange for your business group to be transported to and/or from your station by certified, top-quality coach operators.


On-board services

We offer a wide range of on-board services to create an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience for your guests, clients or employees.

Customized decor
We can customize the interior of your coach or train with your event’s signature colours, using chair covers, decorations, removable stickers and treatments applied to glass surfaces. We can also set up work areas for your group.

On-board catering
Our catering team can provide a delicious meal that your guests can enjoy together. Convert our café-bar into a buffet during your journey, and make the most of having the space all to yourself.
