Intercités de Nuit
As Toulouse is still remote from France’s main high-speed rail network, travel times from Paris to Toulouse are longer than you might expect. That’ll change in due course, but until it does there’s still a strong market for overnight travel between the two cities.
The direct Intercités de Nuit train normally leaves Paris between ten and eleven in the evening.
If the idea of an overnight train journey doesn’t appeal, don’t worry. You have plenty of daytime options too. There are several daytime TGVs from Paris Montparnasse to Toulouse - the journey time has much improved since July 2017, when a new high-speed route opened to Bordeaux. The Paris-Toulouse TGVs use that new route. And there are also Intercités services which leave from Paris Austerlitz.
Paris to Toulouse (night train)
The night train to Toulouse leaves from Paris Austerlitz station. Like all domestic overnight services within France, this train does not have sleeping cars. But it does offer a choice of reclining seats, six-berth couchettes and four-berth couchettes. For a reasonable night’s sleep we strongly recommend opting for couchette accommodation.
The night train makes a brief stop at Les-Aubrais-Orléans to pick up passengers bound for south-west France. It then travels for some hours before making a couple of stops to set down passengers prior to arriving in Matabiau station in Toulouse in the morning. From Toulouse Matabiau there are excellent onward connections to destinations across south-west France. The Paris to Toulouse night train carries through carriages (both couchettes and reclining seats) to a number of communities in the Pyrenees. These include Foix, Ax-les-Thermes, L'Hospitalet (for Andorra) and Latour de Carol (for onward connections to Spain or with the diminutive Petit Train Jaune along the mountainous Ligne de Cerdagne).
