Organizing a school outing for 10 to 300—or even more? We’ve got services and travel ideas designed to complement your curriculum.
Need some help organizing an excursion for your school? We’ve got solutions.
Working with our partners, we deliver customized services that create an unforgettable learning experience for your class. To take advantage of our special offers for school groups, you must be a professional educator travelling with a group of at least 10 people, and your journey must be funded by your school, your community, or a philanthropic donor.
Plan your journey around:
Relax and enjoy your journey—leave the organizing to us. Book one or more private coaches on an existing train departing from Paris or another French city. In either case, we’re pleased to offer a wide range of additional fee-based services to make your excursion smooth and successful from door to door.
Door-to-door luggage service
This service ensures that luggage for your entire group is delivered to your final destination. We’ll pick up your luggage(1) from the place of your choice and deliver it all to a single address anywhere in France, within 48 hours(2).
(1) Suitcases, duffels, soft-sided bags, and trunks with two handles qualify 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 motor coach or meeting point and transferred to the right coach in your train, making it easier for you to manage your group.
Motor coach services
We can also arrange for your school group to be transported to and/or from your station by certified, top-quality motor coach operators.
