Aboard your TGV

Our TGVs have a lot to offer—WiFi, a café-bar, and welcoming spaces where you can relax and socialize.

Relax. We’ve got the amenities you need.

Adjustable seats

Travel in comfort with our new ergonomic seats—now standard in both 1st and 2nd class.

Power outlets

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

Folding tray tables

Want to use your computer or enjoy a meal? Simply open up your tray table.

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 outlets that anyone can use.

Luggage storage areas

Stow heavy or bulky bags in the designated areas at the entrance to your 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 Calme

Travelling 1st class aboard one of our TGVs? Consider booking in our Espace Calme4, a dedicated area where you can travel in peace. Available for select destinations at no extra charge.

In Espace Calme, everyone enjoys a restful journey by following a few simple rules:

  • keep conversations quiet
  • use headphones
  • make phone calls on the platform between coaches
  • silence electronic devices

Espace Pro Première

Travelling on business? Choose Espace Pro Première for a quiet space where you can work or relax.

When you book your Pro Première TGV ticket, you’re automatically assigned to a seat in the Espace Pro Première coach as long as space is available—at no extra charge3.

Our TGV café-bar

Located in car 4 or 14, the café-bar in your TGV is a great place to relax or socialize.

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

  • the "Veggie Menu": for 9.90 € get a quinoa salad with tomatoes, red peppers and organic cranberries or the olive oil-confit vegetable salad, includes a dessert and a beverage
  • the "Counter Menu" : for 11.90€ get a club sandwich (ham, sheep’s cheese, tomatoes, yoghurt sauce with tandoori spices and tarragon) or a pita bread (chicken, raw vegetables, lemon confit hummus), includes a dessert and beverage

  • the "Sweet Break": for 5.40€ get a sweet snack or a lemon cake and a hot or a specialty beverage, a soda or a mineral water
