    Great way to get to Paris |
    "Great way to travel. The only improvement would be to allow people to know where their carriage is going to be on the platform - there is such a lot going on when you have to run (with luggage) from one end of the platform the other end. "

    "Train travel is so relaxing and you get to view the countryside. It beats getting to airports and waiting to check in 1-2 hours before a flight, and the waiting for luggage at other end, then working out how to get to your accommodation. It may take longer but when you take into account all the time in between flying its less stressful. "

    "We had a very comfortable trip from Barcelona to France recently. It was great to have the fours seats together, facing each other for our group. The train was clean, on-time and very comfortable. The only downside was the lack of luggage space for large bags. This required a lot of manual handling by our group as many people disregarded the fact that others needed to store luggage too. More space definitely needs to be allocated. Staff were very helpful and it was great to hear the announcements in multiple languages. I would travel this way again rather than the plane :) "
