What’s on board?
For great value tickets, book a seat in Standard. There’s plenty of leg room and space to move around, and you can curb your hunger at Café Métropole, our onboard bar buffet. In Standard Premier and Business Premier, we’ll serve a meal en route at your spacious and comfortable seat. If you’re a Standard Premier or Business Premier traveller who is hopping on a TGV InOui in Paris, you can sit in First Class for the second part of your journey. So sit back, relax and enjoy watching the scenery pass by.
