MONTEUX - MARSEILLES

Postby NinaLW » 13 Jul 2009 - 12:10

Dear Peter and Flo,

I am in Montreux for the Jazz festival until 19. July, then I want to go on the coast side, Manaco and Marseille.

How should i organize my route? I am very much confused by the suppliement or whatever it is called. And Even a little amount of seats are supplied for interrail ticket holders. :(

Do you think I can do a day trip or two down to Marseille? How do you recommend?

Thinks a lot!

From Montreux to Genève there are two connections each hour with supplement-free IR train.

From Genève take as well a supplement-free TER to Lyon. Change there to a direct TGV either to Marseille or Nice. Other possibility would be a direct TGV Genève - Marseille/Nice but there are only two respectively one direct connections per day.

The TGV require a 3/10€ supplement (off-peak/peak) that you have to buy directly at a train station. I'm sure that you can do so at Gare de Montreux. Like you've said there's only a limited number of seats available for InterRailers on TGV so the sooner you do the reservation the better.

Possible connection on July 20th:

Montreux 1219 - 1324 Genève
Genève 1344 - 1717 Marseille/1955 Nice

Note that the direct TGV from Genève might be full quickly.

Dear Flo,

I noted you said the direction connection from Geneve to Marseille could be full already...

If full, What do you suggest then?

Geneve to Lyon (with ? Euro supplement? / the name is called free TER, but you should pay, right? :D )

Lyon to Marseille, TGV, 10 Euro+, right?

I have 22 days global pass. (Without money without seat, it is like you buy printer and then fill it up with inks)

You dont have to pay anything extra when traveling with a TER when you have a valid InterRail ticket.

The TGV supplement is either 3€or 10€ depending on which date and time you travel. 10€ from ~7am to 9am and 15pm to 18pm throughout the week; at fridays and sundays these periods can be extended. You cant tell for sure, you have to go to the counter and see what they tell you what's the price. :)

Geneve Arr: 1104

Geneve Dep: 1117 (TGV - EUR 3)
Valence TGV Arr: 1342

Valence TGV Dep: 1407 (TGV - EUR 3)
