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.
