Cheaper Train Travel in France With OUIGO

Affordable tickets!

In addition to iDTGV and iDBUS we have now added another low-cost carrier, OUIGO, on Capitaine Train.

What is OUIGO?

It’s a new French high-speed rail operator (a SNCF subsidiary) which offers extremely low prices, especially for connections in the South-East region.

What makes OUIGO unique?

  • Tickets start at €10 for adults and from €5 for children.
  • The tickets are not refundable but may be exchanged for other OUIGO tickets.
  • You can bring along one piece of cabin-sized baggage and one piece of carry-on baggage for free, and every additional piece costs €5.
  • There is only one travel class on these blue and pink trains.
  • OUIGO covers routes between Marne-la-Vallée and the South-East of France (Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nîmes, Valence, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence… See the map below).

It’s that time of year

The launch of OUIGO on Capitaine Train coincides with the OUIGO Christmas sales, which start today.

As the cheapest tickets (only €10) are naturally the most sought after, we recommend that you book as soon as possible to benefit from the best bargains! First come first served…

By the way: Christmas sales for SNCF tickets open October 17th, Deutsche Bahn (DB) October 15th.
