    Just a corrective, the Raileurope site gives the price in £ (28)which gives you nearer 34 €, same as the SNCF French site

    Pricing depends on the day and time of day - it can vary considerably, so I don't know how anyone can tell you a price - go to www.voyages-sncf.fr, put in your day and times, and they will give you the prices - Sometimes there are special offers too, the Prems - and promotions - Please avoid rip off Raileurope - unless you are traveling on a super high season day, you can usually get your tickets not too far in advance and even at the station - you will save a lot - enjoy, Jean

    yes of course, the Raileurope only acts as an agent of the SNCF, and I am told prices seems to be higher there. the official site is the one given above of voyages-sncf in French for prices and purchases, but seems easy to use by visitors.

    if you want to know schedules and local trains the best option is the TER site by region in France.
    This is the info on the station in Argeles-sur-mer

    ter-sncf.com/Region/languedo...

    and go back to train for the schedules, you dont need to buy in advance for that traject at the station is fine.
    ter-sncf.com/Regions/langued...

    hope it helps

    Actually Pedro I just re-checked, and at todays rates it would be nearly 1€ more expensive on Sncf than Raileurope. Of course that is on the TER trip as given by the OP. I just picked a date in the middle of April, 28£ (33.07€) on raileurope and 34€ on Sncf. But of course the rates don't stay the same and there might be a significant change on different routes.
