France's national rail service, SNCF, has opened up sales for summer train tickets.


France's national rail service, SNCF has opened up sales for train tickets for July and August, so you can now purchase tickets on any SNCF operated lines - from high speed TGV trains to intercités and budget-friendly Ouigo services. 


To purchase your French rail tickets, you can do so via SNCF Connect, either on the application or website.

For high speed TGV lines and Intercités, you will be able to book through September 3rd, and for Ouigo services you can book all the way up to December, according to Le Parisien.

Keep in mind that France's national rail service increased ticket prices for 2023 - not all tickets have become more expensive – the rise in pricing primarily impacted “maximum fares” – or tickets booked at the last minute. As a result, it is advantageous to book as early as possible, in order to benefit from lower pricing.
