NEWS FLASH Low-Cost Train in France!

France is unveiling a new train service, Ouigo (we-go), this Monday that will compete with  low-cost airlines like Ryanair. 

Eurostar - London to Paris
The first page of the website is only available in French, but once you input your departure and arrival cities and travel dates, you are taken to a new page where you have the option to switch to English for the remainder of the transaction.  

A ticket from Lyon to Marseille in mid-April costs only €15, and I've read about promotional tickets from Paris to the south of France for €10.  Of course, passengers sacrifice a few luxuries for these low fares.  Anything beyond one suitcase costs an extra €5 and use of a power outlet is €2.  Still the rates are hard to beat.
