Our Solo Lady2 compartment is for you. You’ll have peace of mind when you choose this ladies-only compartment, and it’s available at no extra charge.

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

On-board amenities

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

  • if you booked a couchette, you’ll find a bottle of water next to your bed, along with a travel kit containing moist towelettes, earplugs and tissues.
  • if you booked a reclining seat, you’ll have a footrest and an adjustable headrest, and your seatback will recline to a 45° angle. Individual reading lights make it easy for you to read or work without disturbing other passengers.

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.
Crew members are on hand to meet your expectations throughout your overnight journey. At your request, the conductor will personally wake you at the time of your choice.
