Promoting Relaxed's comment to an answer... It's also on infolignes.com/! If you do as I did, and select your region from the area I've labelled as #2, it will tell you about the general pattern for trains in your region.

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 ...

It seems the answer for requests submitted online is under a week. On Wednesday 18th June I submitted two requests online, one for a journey which was delayed, one for a journey which was cancelled due to the strike. On Friday 20th I received a response to my cancelled train request, denying it due to the strike. On Monday 23rd I received a response to my ...

I have no other reference than my own experience. I filled the online form or sometimes sent the envelope they give when the train is late. The process seems relatively automated, I suppose they check manually only cases like yours, but it still takes time. Over the 5 to 10 times I filed such complaints, I usually waited 1 to 2 months. I would say that 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

In practice, you're supposed to enter the details of your train on the site you linked to and you will see if you are entitled to any compensation (see the line “droit à une compensation”). I just tried a train that was not running last week and the answer was “étude personnalisée”, which implies something like “on a case-by-case basis”. The reason for that ...

You can call the SNCF phone line on 36 38, they will cancel your tickets based on its reference . Assuming you old that big old kind of tickets, not an e-billet or a regional ticket. Black and white, without a QR-code but with the mention à composter avant l'accès au train, your reference are the six letters next to dossier on the lower right corner. Then ...

Unfortunately no, it does not seem possible to update your ticket with a membership card number after buying the ticket. On the help of voyages-sncf.com{french}, the question is answered with the suggestion to exchange your current ticket for a new one, mentioning your membership number. My opinion is that it is worth only if you can cancel your ticket for ...

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 ...

According to the FAQ of online check-in, you are not allowed to check-in online for tgvair offer, unless you take the train from Strasbourg or Brussels. You will still have to go to the airport counter in these two cases. If you take the train from Strasbourg and you want to get your tickets there, ...

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.

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, ...
