Night Trains Paris Lourdes

11 June 2011

After some investigation into why there are no tickets for sale on night trains between Paris and Lourdes this summer it appears the explanation is trackwork. Maintenance is scheduled over the summer so while there are likely to be night train services running no-one is entirely sure when, and SNCF don’t want to sell tickets yet.

There seem to be some night trains that are not sleepers (with good rates for first class) so one option might be to simply come in a reclining chair, thinking that first class should be relatively comfortable.  Or buy the night train ticket via Toulouse and then see if you can swap it at the last minute if a train to Lourdes becomes available.
