Aboard your TGV INOUI

Your TGV INOUI has a lot to offer—WiFi, a café-bar, and welcoming spaces where you can relax, socialize and more.

Updated on

Comfort à la carte

The choice is yours. Our high-speed trains offer multiple seating options:

  • in 2nd class, choose side-by-side or facing seats
  • in 1st class, choose a single seat, two seats side by side, or a group of four facing seats

In some trains, you can even choose whether you sit in forward- or rear-facing seats, or on the upper or lower level of the train. Simply indicate your preference when you book.

Relax. We’ve got the amenities you need.

Power outlets

Need to recharge your smartphone or touchscreen tablet? On most of our lines, 1st class coaches now have a separate power point for each passenger1.

Folding tray tables

Want to use your computer or enjoy a meal? Open up your tray table and adjust it to the right position for you.

A reading light just for you1

The light is soft and easy on the eyes, so you can read comfortably without disturbing your neighbours.

Comfort zone

Our TGV coaches feature lighting that adjusts throughout the day, and a ventilation system that regulates the temperature and recycles the air.


The platforms between coaches allow you to make mobile calls without disturbing your fellow passengers. There’s also an office space with power points that anyone can use.

Luggage storage areas

Stow heavy or bulky bags in the designated areas at the entrance to your TGV INOUI compartment. Carryon bags go in the overhead rack above your seat.

Nursery area

If you’re travelling with an infant or toddler, feel free to use our nursery area, complete with changing table.

Need to heat a bottle or baby food for a child under three? Simply ask, and our catering staff will be happy to oblige.

Carré Famille

Travelling with your children? Book a Carré Famille in 1st or 2nd class, and you'll have four facing seats for your family. 

Espace Familles

Want to enjoy some family time aboard your train? Book your 2nd class seats in one of our Espace Familles2 coaches, available aboard select trains on select dates.

You’ll share the coach with other families, so your children can play freely together during the journey without disturbing other passengers. And because the Espace Familles is next door to the nursery area, travelling with your infant or toddler is easier too.

Espace Business Première

Travelling on business? Choose Espace Business Première for a quiet space where you can work or relax. When you book your ticket at the Pro Première TGV (or similar) fare, you’re automatically assigned to a seat in the Espace Business Première coach as long as space is available, at no extra charge3.

Our café-bar

Look for the café-bar in car 4 or 14 of your TGV INOUI. It’s the ideal place to have a gourmet snack or enjoy a meal with others.

There’s something on the menu for every budget, and we change our offering regularly to showcase seasonal products. We recommend:

  • the Veggie menu (€9.90). Choose a salad of celery, Granny Smith apple chunks and organic hazelnuts, or a spelt salad with mung beans. Both come with beverage and dessert
  • the Comptoir menu (€11.90), featuring your choice of: chicken club sandwich with duck pâté and fresh spinach; ham sandwich on country bread with crisp vegetables and yoghurt-herb sauce; burger with Charolais beef, potato rösti, barbecue sauce, Comté cheese and red onion; or a Croque-Monsieur. All come with beverage or dessert
  • the Bistro menu (€13.90). Choose from three recipes created by Michelin-starred chef Michel Sarran: creamy, mustard-spiked turkey stew over garlic rice; a savoury pie of duck confit, wild mushrooms and hazelnuts; or gnocchi with smooth Jerusalem artichoke sauce and sheep cheese. Each comes with your choice of beverage and dessert
  • our Pause Gourmande (€6.10), featuring your choice of organic fig yoghurt, ultra-moist chocolate cake, hazelnut cake or Gascon custard cake with prunes, accompanied by a hot or speciality beverage, soft drink or mineral water
  • tasty snacks for everyone, starting from just €2
