Book Ahead

You can now book ahead on routes from Paris to holiday hotspots including Nice, Marseille, Monaco, Toulouse, Biarritz and Aix en Provence. The usual method of having to wait until 3 months before travelling does not apply to this peak travel time which makes it easier for you to plan your holiday.

The existing rolling 3 month booking horizon remains in place for dates outside of peak travel time.

Eurostar services can be booked up to 6 months in advance of the date of travel.

Let the Auto Train take the Strain

French Auto Train services to 12 destinations throughout France can be booked. Foot passenger tickets can be booked at the same time as car tickets on selected routes. AutoTrain destinations include Toulouse, Biarritz, Marseille and Nice.

Drop your car or motorcycle off at the Auto Train station in Paris, and let it travel overnight to your destination. You travel separately without the stress of traffic jams, toll roads or Sat Nav tantrums, pick up your vehicle and enjoy the rest of your holiday.
