When can I book seats for a journey in France for 28 July?

  • I am wanting to travel Strasbourg to Paris Est on 28 July, but am told when I try and do it on-line that this is not possible until 27 June. In the past I have been able to book 3 months in advance when travelling by rail in France. Has the system changed?

Hello Joan,

Thanks for the question.

The booking for your sector is open on the website. You can book and travel as follows:

- Strasbourg to Paris with 1 connection at Mulhouse - TER and TGV trains.

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!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.

Thank you for your response, but no, this doesn't help. The journey you proposed takes half a day on a very circuitous route but should only take about 2hrs 20 mins direct to Paris Est. Today I tried to book for the 28th July, same journey, and I'm told that "it is too early ... bookings will be available from 3rd July." Something very strange is going on. Can you please check and let me know?

Thank you.
