Why choose travelling by train between France and Switzerland?

Whether you’re on a business trip or just enjoying a break away, there are plenty of reasons to head to Paris. But what’s the best way of getting there? Without a doubt, the TGV is your best option. Here are 5 reasons why the train beats the plane hands down when travelling from Switzerland to Paris.


Waste less time waiting in the station and virtually eliminate transfer time

It’s not the time on board that counts, but the total time spent travelling door-to-door. The locations of the railway stations themselves are an obvious timesaver: no long, tiring and often stressful transfers to and from the airport. The train takes you directly from one city centre to the other! And there’s no need to do a check-in either. You only need to arrive at the station a few minutes before your train leaves. No waiting around, no checking in, no stress. With TGV Lyria you simply climb on board and away you go!


Make better use of your time on board a TGV

Travel by train is perfect for getting on with your work, watching a film or just browsing on your computer. During an hour-long flight, however, you hardly have time to get your computer out before you’re told to switch off all devices ready for landing. On the train, there are no limits: you can make the most of every minute.  Moreover, electric sockets are provided for all passengers to charge their devices in both first and second class.


Enjoy greater comfort and catering service on board

Besides the fact that there’s more space to move around on the train compared to a plane, TGV LYRIA offers a catering service in the bar coach as well as a mobile catering service, including a wide range of snacks, hot meals and drinks, for all passengers. In Business 1ère an in-seat catering service is included in the ticket price.


Forget those baggage worries :

Your luggage is a central part of any journey. The practices of airline companies – between size, weight, checking in and excess baggage costs – are well known to all. With TGV Lyria, these worries are a thing of the past! There are several luggage storage areas available in each carriage, making life easier.


Competitive prices

The further ahead you plan, the less you pay. If you reserve up to 4 months in advance, you can pick up tickets at some very affordable prices – from just €29 / CHF 32 for a ticket from Paris to Geneva!
