Opening of TGV Lyria ticket sales

The opening of ticket sales at TGV Lyria is when you can start to book your train tickets, up to 4 months before your journey.
This ensures you have the chance to obtain lower prices, on journeys between France and Switzerland.

Opening of ticket sales in 3 words

  • Anticipation : TGV Lyria train tickets are available up to 4 months in advance.
  • Adaptation : if construction work on the tracks is planned or if there is a change in the timetables, the date of availability of the tickets may be affected. Please consult our traffic information page beforehand.
  • Action : there are a limited number of seats at low prices. The less expensive tickets therefore go very quickly, particularly on high-demand routes, during the peak season or at peak times.

In short: be prepared so you can plan your journey at the lowest prices.
