My membership's anniversary recently happened and I am back to the Voyageur status. I could in fact keep my points monnaie and use them for rewards. I could see some lines in the conditions about the expiration of these points though: Le solde de points monnaie d’un client qui passe du statut Grand Voyageur au statut Voyageur est supprimé 6 mois après ...

Between Paris and Tours you can either take a TGV (highspeed train) or an "Intercités" (classical train). Both are cheaper when booked in advance. The full fare for a 2nd class TGV ticket is 65 EUR. Booked in advance it can be as cheap as 25 EUR. For Intercités the range goes from 15 EUR to 36.20 EUR. You should also know that TGVs can sell out. If you are ...

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.

This page (in French) from SNCF http://aide.voyages-sncf.com/toute-laide-train/je-prepare-mon-voyage/informations-pratiques-horaires-trafic-gares/ouverture-des-ventes mentions that the opening of sale is usually three months in advance. It basically says that the opening of sales for TGV and Intercités trains begins three months before the travel date. On ...

From experience I say 3 months, but not sure whether that is 90 days regardless of length of the months, or same day of the week or same date regardless of month. You will have to check out a few trains and keep an eye out just before the expected period. The one exception I have seen on this rule is the Eurostar, which allows a 4 month early booking, ...
