I am positive there is no possibility to change seats easily (and searching the help on voyages-sncf returned no result). Once you made a reservation, this is not easy to make any change to it. I do not have any reservation right now to try harder to change the seat but recently I cancelled my booking and made a new one just to get a different seat. So that ...

In Lille Europe at least, it is possible to collect a TGVAir ticket the evening before. I headed to the Lille Europe ticket office, found the desk with the TGVAir sign, and explained I wanted to collect a ticket for very early the next morning. The person on the ticket desk took my booking reference, looked through a large pile of tickets for the next day ...

I never used raileurope, but on most websites (such as Voyages-sncf's and Eurostar) e-tickets allow you to easily change seats after reservation, while paper tickets usually need to be exchanged physically. I received good recommendations for Capitaine Train, which includes more seat preferences than Voyages-sncf's. Also, due to the fact that both act as ...

First apparently this line is indeed operated with TGVs and voyages-sncf says that there is a restaurant coach on these. I found the exact menu but in French (and with bad quality graphics). In short, they offer a choice (I mean there are multiple items of each type) of hot dishes and cold sandwiches, desserts, cookies, hot and cold drinks, usually packaged ...

As of May 2015, Cherbourg-Paris cannot be done entirely on a TER, but rather on an Intercités train. The fare conditions of a SNCF ticket (cardboard or e-ticket) are usually listed on the ticket. For an Intercités ticket bought on voyages-sncf.com (tgv-europe.com no longer exists) on the Leisure fare for Cherbourg-Paris, it is possible to cancel it for free ...

These TGVs have a different menu to the regular domestic French TGVs! The menu is branded as "b2in", and features the logos of both SNCF and RENFE on it: A pdf of the menu can be found here on the Elipsos site - if that isn't the exact one as found on the TGV last weekend then it's very very close to that! It largely contain the same kinds of things as ...

On voyages-sncf, the standard booking tool does not provide a field for your "Code Avantage". However, if you go for advanced search, you will find, in the section for the passenger details, a "Promotional Code" field appearing. I know it is not straight forward.

If you go to the voyages-sncf webpage, you'll see there's a field called Code avantage. Just type your code in, and the associated discount should be applied.

My personal experience with the TGVAir service (to/from Lorraine TGV station) would suggest that the ticket for the train part of the TGVAir combined journey must be retrieved from a TGVAir ticket booth (guichet) and cannot be obtained on-line. However, irrespective of how early in the morning at night or late the train might depart, the afore-mentioned ...

SNCF's TGV page has a section about the TGV BAR/Restaurant which you might want to look at. They offer both snacks but also full meals - e.g. the page mentions: Several suggestions are available for a wide range of prices: Menu Bio : €11,90* Menu Gourmand (entree, main course, drink) : from €8,90 to €12,90* Menu Malin (sandwich, drink, ...
