Upstairs, downstairs, it's up to you. Choose your seating preference when booking TGV Duplex trains.
Looking out the window is surely one of the greatest pleasures of travelling by train, and from the top deck of a modern TGV Duplex the views are even better. Duplex trains operate on several routes in Europe, and it’s now possible to select your preference when booking with Loco2.
When you reach the ‘Choose passengers’ page you’ll be able to select your seating preference if your journey includes a Duplex train. Choose upstairs if you fancy the view, or downstairs if you’d prefer not to climb the stairs. Loco2 will try to reserve a seat on the upper or lower deck according to your preference.
Duplex trains are available on a number of TGV routes, linking Paris to destinations in the south and southeast of France like Aix en Provence, Nice and Marseille. There is also a TGV-Lyria Duplex service operating on the Paris-Geneva route. We haven’t got an exhaustive list of routes which operate Duplex trains yet, but whenever the option is available we’ll give the choice when you reach the choose passenger page.
