Hello Raghunath,

Thanks for your question.

You would have to travel as follows:

-Paris to LyonTGV / TER train

-Lyon to Avignon - TGV / TER train

-Avignon to Carcassonne via Narbonne or Montpellier – TER and Corail Teoz train

There are no direct trains from Carcassonne to Madrid. You would have to break your journey at Barcelona as follows:

-Carcassonne to Barcelona – Direct train (You would have to purchase point to point tickets)

-Barcelona to MadridAVE train (You would have to purchase point to point tickets)

With a France Rail Pass you can avail of unlimited travel on the national rail networks of France.

Passes can be purchased up to 6 months before your first day of travel. The pass must be validated within 6 months from the original date of issue.

All trains that travel internationally, night trains, scenic trains and high speed trains will require reservations.

With a Pass the seat reservations will be offered at discounted fares (Pass holder fares).

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking here & then 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.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

Hope this helps.
