TGV trains offer standard and first class seating, and unlike trains in the UK, all seats need to be reserved in advance.
Standard Class offers comfortable seating, and trains include a bar-buffet car, vending machines for snacks, and baby changing areas.
First Class offers larger reclining seats that have their own power point for passengers wanting to plug in their phone or laptop, as well as a little more legroom. On TGV Est services you can choose from a range of meals served at your seat.
TGV Pro is for business travellers – in France, the TGV is the favoured method of business travel. There are dedicated carriages for TGV Pro passengers, access to business lounges (called Salons des Grand Voyageurs)at 11 stations in France, a welcome service from Monday to Friday, the ability to pre-book taxis on board via the train conductor, travel packs and the option to pay for a meal to be served at your seat.
