From inside France, dial 3635 any day of the week, 07.00-22.00. From outside France, dial 00 33 1 84 94 3635. In either case, our service is free: you pay only the cost of your call.

Our Dame Seule/Solo Lady3 compartment is for you. You can travel with confidence in this women-only compartment, and it’s available at no extra charge.

To use this service, simply tick the Solo Lady option when you book online, or request it when you buy tickets in a station or SNCF sales office.

Travel with others

Travelling with family or friends? Take an INTERCITÉS overnight train, and your compartment in 1st class (4 couchettes) or 2nd class (6 couchettes) can become your own private suite.

On-board amenities

We’ve designed the overnight Intercités experience for maximum comfort.

When you book a couchette, you’ll find a bottle of water next to your bed, along with a travel kit containing moist towelettes, earplugs and tissues.

For your safety and peace of mind, all compartments can be locked, and your train will make few if any stops between midnight and 05.30.

On-board staff are on hand to meet your expectations throughout your overnight journey. At your request, the train manager will personally wake you at the time of your choice.
