Thanks. I visited that and other pages. When you are going to buy tickets they say if it wonders, just for that trip, to buy a card and they said me it worthed for not so much money, but worthed.... but (and confirmed by company) not possible to buy on internet with an out of France address.

So you called them (I was about to tell you to do so)..

That said, may I suggest you (if of course I correctly understood your issue) to insist, because generally (I'm serious, I mean this is France/French customer services) when you "yell at them"...then, mysteriously, "everything" becomes possible. (again, this is France)...anyway, you have nothing to lose in trying that way...

...And trust me, it works!

Well... tickets are already bought and payed. I contacted them via internet and assured that could be bought only on stations or by internet if living in France. What I do not understand is why they ask the country and do not let to change it... Write it as default and enough.

Question now is if it possible to buy a Enfant+ card and change 8 tickets with it in a station, prior to take first train.

I took the Pau-Paris-Pau TGV and I have some questions...

- Since when did they call at Orthez?. I though it wasn't called by TGV
- Border-St.Sebastian is now under works. TGV said all stations until Hendaye. Do they go until Irun or only until Hendaye? (they were joined till Dax)

Perfect on going, 10 minutes delayed on back

I'm not sure I understand this argument, can someone help?

Quote:
"La fusion des régions permet déjà de faire des économies", affirme le président LR de l'association Régions de France Philippe Richert. Et les chiffres l'attestent. Les régions dépensent moins qu'avant, et cela s'observe notamment sur les trains régionaux. Il faut rappeler que le prix du billet ne couvre qu'1/4 seulement des dépenses. Le reste est payé par la région. Mais comme le contrat négocié avec la SNCF couvre désormais un territoire bien plus vaste, les grandes régions ont aujourd'hui plus de poids pour négocier de meilleurs tarifs. Par exemple en Occitanie, l'économie réalisée est estimée à 260 millions d'euros, quant à la région Grand Est, elle devrait se situer aux alentours de 350 millions d'euros sur 5 ans, ce qui représente une baisse d'environ 10% de la facture, alors que l'on compte 200 trains de plus sur les rails.
http://www.rtl.fr/actu/societe-faits...ies-7788780795

It says that the merging of regions has helped make vast savings in railway costs, but from how I understand the explanation, it simply means that the new (and bigger) regions have renegotiated the level of subsidy for the regional railway networks (TER), so the regions now pay less and the operator, SNCF, pays more via ticket prices. Which I wouldn't call "savings", just a different pocket from which to put out the taxpayers' money...

Well, it doesn't say anything about the ticket prices except that 1/4 of the expenses are covered by the tickets, the rest is paid by the regions.

For the rest, it's basically what you've said : savings from bigger contracts.
