End-to-end services
for business travellers

Have a car waiting at the station. Book your hotel and international flight with your train tickets. Arrange for a cab. With our end-to-end services, you can organize your entire business trip in a snap.


Just arrived on a flight from abroad and have business in one of France's provincial cities? Or perhaps you're visiting a French client or supplier outside the Paris region and need to catch an international flight? With our TGV Air offer, you can buy a single ticket for international air travel plus a high-speed rail journey by TGV before or after your flight. This service is available to and from 19 French provincial cities (1) plus Brussels, for flights into and out of Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. (Orly is served by the Massy TGV station.)

When you choose TGV Air, you enjoy:

  • a combined ticket with built-in savings
  • a high-speed TGV train selected by your airline for a seamless air-rail connection
  • assistance if there’s a delay or cancellation
  • loyalty points with select airlines
  • a single reservation for your journey
  • a wide range of destinations

If your journey begins with a TGV, you must check in at the TGV Air window of your departure station at least 20 minutes before the train’s scheduled departure. An SNCF employee will issue your ticket and check you in for your connecting international flight. For security reasons, you must check your luggage at the airport.

If your flight is the first leg of your journey, you must collect your luggage at the airport before you check in at the TGV Air window at Charles de Gaulle airport or at the Massy TGV station (for Orly). An SNCF employee will give you your TGV rail ticket. Tickets issued at TGV Air windows may not be exchanged or refunded.

IDCAB Service

Save time and make your business travel easier with our iDCAB service. When you book your rail journey, simply add an iDCAB taxi or chauffeured vehicle to pick you up or drop you off at the beginning or the end of your rail journey—or both—so you don’t have to worry about getting to and from the station. Pricing starts at €9.90*.

iDCAB service is available every day of the week, whenever trains are running, and it offers a number of benefits:

  • you know your fare in advance: the fixed price is based on your route, and you pay when you book
  • you can download receipts to manage your travel costs
  • you can book immediately, so there’s no waiting for your driver at the station
  • you’re guaranteed to have a lift from the station, even if your train is late—and you won’t pay extra
  • no extra charges—you pay one price for everything, for 1-4 passengers complete with luggage

Look for iDCAB in these stations:
Aix-en-Provence TGV, Bordeaux Saint-Jean, Charles de Gaulle TGV, Lille Europe, Lille Flandres, Lyon Part-Dieu, Lyon Perrache, Lyon Saint-Exupéry, Marne-la-Vallée-Chessy TGV, Massy TGV, Nantes, Paris Est, Paris Lyon, Paris Montparnasse, Paris Austerlitz, Paris Bercy, Paris Nord, Paris Saint-Lazare, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse Matabiau.

When you travel on a Pro Premiere TGV ticket, you can ask your conductor** to book a taxi for you—and there’s no charge. You pay your fare and pickup fee directly to the driver.

* Pricing starts at €9.90, except for fares to or from Charles de Gaulle TGV and Marne-la-Vallée TGV, where pricing starts at €12.90. To learn more about pricing for your journey, visit the IDCAB website.
