Can I activate my France Rail Pass at Gare d'Aix en Provence Centre?

I am planning to purchase France Rail Pass and my first trip is travelling from Aix-en-Provence to Marseille. Thus, I would like to confirm if I can activate my France Rail Pass at Gare d'Aix en Provence Centre, NOT Aix en Provence TGV Station.

Thank you.

Hello Ka Wing Wong,

Thanks for the question.

You can validate your Pass at any train station in France provided it should be the first trip train station, from where you start your first train journey. You can validate your pass at Aix en Provence Centre, however it should be the first trip train station.

You can validate your pass through the station manager or at the booking counter at the train station.

Thanks Amar.

Since my first trip from Aix-en-Provence to Marseille is on

Sunday, I am wondering if the booking counter at Gare d'Aix en Provence Centre

Station also opens on Sundays.

I have searched the opening hours of Gare d'Aix en Provence

Centre Station and one website says ticketing services is available from 0800

to 1900 on Sundays (http://www.gares-sncf.com/fr/gare/frqxb/aix-provence/services) while the other one says the counter is closed on Sundays (http://www.ter.sncf.com/paca/gares/87751404/Aix_en_Provence/pratique). As both are official websites, I am really confused if I can

validate my pass on Sunday. Would you please kindly help to clarify?

Thank you.

Hello Ka Wing Wong,

Thanks for your reply.

You can activate your pass with the station manager available at the train station if the booking counter is closed. You need not worry as the station manager will be available at the train station.

Hope this helps!!!
