booked the tickets for 10 days in June, Marseille to Bordeaux with rented car. Its not a small distance, but we are stuck with the mountains/countryside. How much time should we dedicate to the Gorges du Tarn area, and Perigord (Noir) -Sarlat? Our itinerary will be more or less Marseille -Aix -Arles -Montpellier -Toulouse - Albi - Sarlat -.Bordeaux. What do you think? Which part is skippable, to make the rest more comfortable? Between Albi and Sarlat which one is better to stay and more interensting? Between Toulouse and Montpellier?
Thank you so much
I am looking at the train schedules from Toulouse to Lourdes on http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ and find it rather puzzliing as a first time user.
When I try to book the direct service on Intercites 14243 (10hr09), 14245 (12hr32) etc on 5 April or other days before that, it shows Seat reservation recommended. But when I choose to Indicate My Seat Preference it shows No places available! Does it means that all these trains are fully booked now, practically everyday from now up to 5 April?
When I proceed to choose the journey the next page says: "On some trains, the place you requested isn't available for the fare you chose. We have reserved you a place with different criteria instead".
I can still continue to confirm the booking if I choose to, but will I be guaranteed a seat on these trains or there is possibility that I may not be able to get on the train?
On those services via Tarbes, such as TER 72705 connecting TGV 8585 at 12hr41, it shows No seats reservation required from Toulouse to Tarbes and No places available also. From Tarbes to Lourdes it shows Off peak and Mandatory seat reservation, and seating preference is available for selection.
I have posted the screen shots here for reference.
Thank you for your helps.
