Can I use France Pass to travel from Barcelona to Lourdes?

Hi,

I plan (4 of us) to travel from Barcelona to Lourdes and then the next day I will travel from Lourdes to Paris. here is the plan

08:25 BARCELONA SANTS

10:23 NARBONNE

Connection (0h37m)

11:00 NARBONNE

12:12 TOULOUSE MATABIAU

Connection (0h19m)

12:31 TOULOUSE MATABIAU

14:45 LOURDES

The next day:

14:32LOURDES

20:33PARIS MONTPARNASSE

I would like to ask if:

1. Can I use 2 day France Pass for all the trip?

2. Is the connection time in Narbonne (37 minute) and Toulouse (19 minute) enough for transfer train?

Thanks!

Hello Irene,

Thanks for your question.

1) I would suggest that you purchase point to point tickets as your travel within France is limited. You would have to make mandatory seat reservations for the international and high speed journey.

2) Yes, generally around 15 minutes of connecting time is mandatory as long as you aren’t carrying too much baggage.

Book and travel as follows:

- Barcelona to NarbonneFrance-Spain High Speed train.

- Narbonne to Lourdes via Toulouse – Other and TER trains.

- Lourdes to ParisTGV train.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
