TGV International

Seating Options

What does it mean to travel in First Class? It means options. A perfected, customized experience based on your individual needs. That’s what defines First Class travel on the TGV.

It starts with an uber-comfortable reclining seat with generous legroom that surrounds you in amenities. But First Class also lets you decide just how much of the world to include in your personal space. That’s why you’ll be able to select the seating that best suits you. Choose between individual window seats, two seats facing each other or two seats side by side. Perhaps four seats facing each other and separated from the aisle by a transparent partition is a better fit. Depending on your destination, 6 or 8-seat cabins are also available, as well as seating for disabled travelers. First Class on the TGV. It won’t just fit your travel plans; it will fit your travel preferences.

Why wait till you get on board to relax? Your First Class ticket entitles you to access the First Class lounge at many of the stations, with all the creature comforts you’d expect to find there. Peace. Quiet. WiFi (inside and outside the lounge). And while you’ll always find people to help you, the multi-lingual signage throughout the TGV station makes navigating it simple.
