    TGV is not as nice as Thalys |
    "TGVs are nice when you don't get aisle seats. Aisle seats are uncomfortable as there is nothing to look at and you will inevitably fall asleep (most likely on the person next to you) if you don't have something to keep you occupied! They are also expensive and do not offer any complimentary wifi. "

    BUT THERE IS ROOM TO IMPROVE |
    "Remember wer are 0oversseas customers (as there were many) unfamiliar with the service. The on platform customer service was lacking; no advice where the carriage would be on the platform. The loading of our cases was just a mess and totally insufficient room provided "

    No frills, efficient journey |
    "The train was very clean and tidy and the staff member who checked my ticket was polite. However, it was very difficult to board the train with a large suitcase, given I had to lift it up several steps, and I was not offered assistance when slowly lugging it onto the train. Also, the rack/holder for stowing luggage was situated above the seats, which was not convenient for me; I had a very large heavy suitcase and would not have been able to lift it up alone without a man nearby kindly offering me assistance. The airconditioning was far too high, making the train very cold. The train drivers/announcers also only spoke French for most of the trip until the end; luckily I understood some of what they were saying but I had hoped for an English translation. I also felt the wifi ought to be complimentary - given that I already paid quite a bit for the journey, it seems fair to be granted even just 30 minutes free use of the wifi. Luckily the train journey to Luxembourg wasn't too long. "

    A Bit Disappointing. |
    "We travelled from Luxembourg to Paris Est on the TGV. We booked the tickets on line from Australia on the day that future bookings were available. We were advised that the best price would be obtained if you book well ahead. This was our experience with trains in USA and we thought it would apply in Europe. We discovered that we could have booked the day before for less money, obtained a seniors discount (not apparent on line), and saved the extra costs of a booking fee and delivery fee for the tickets. The other issue was the seat allocation. Having booked so early we expected good seats. Not so! The allocated seats were the ones without the window. We have learned a bit and adopted the local approach and sat where we wanted hoping to not be asked to move by the person holding that seat allocation. It worked. Tip for others- book in country and save the booking fee and delivery fee. "
