About Ouigo

Ouigo is a train service that focuses on low-cost, high-speed, no fuss travel, drawing comparisons to budget airlines. It’s headquartered in France and is owned by Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF), France’s national railway company. Ouigo works out of 18 stations throughout France, including several train stations in Paris, and it also operates in Spain under the Ouigo España brand.

Ouigo is a popular choice with travellers because it offers competitive pricing and a multitude of routes.

Daily Ouigo Train Departures

Ouigo trains call in at 18 stations and cover dozens of routes covering both conventional and high-speed trains. The company runs around 50 trains every day, so there’s always a Ouigo on the tracks somewhere.

It’s not just France, either. Ouigo España launched in May 2021 and within a year, it had carried more than 2 million passengers. It runs 5 daily journeys on the popular Madrid-Barcelona route, and in 2022, it announced new high-speed routes between Madrid and popular locations like Alicante, Valencia, and Albacete.

Ouigo: The Different Tickets

There is only one ticket type available on Ouigo trains. As a result, all passengers are offered the same level of service. However, there are a few optional extras that you can add to your ticket when making a Ouigo train reservation. Many of these are available for a small additional fee:

  • Text Alert: : Receive a text notification containing the platform number and other details
  • Electrical Outlet: : If checked, this option will give you access to an electrical outlet you can use to charge your devices.
  • Extra Baggage: : Carry up to two additional items of luggage on the train.
  • Pram/Buggy: : You are allowed to take a pram on board, but only if you indicate it while making your Ouigo train reservation. The pram must also be folded away before you board the train.
  • Quiet Seating: : There is a quieter area of the train. For a small fee, you can choose to sit here if you need to work, rest, or nap.
  • Pets: : If your pet is less than 6KG, you can carry them on as luggage. If not, you’ll need to purchase a special ticket for them.

The Most Popular Trips with Ouigo

Most Ouigo routes go through Paris, but they don’t serve the main stations, helping to keep costs down. The most popular routes include those taking customers to and from Charles de Gaulle Airport, as well as Marne-la-Vallée—Chessy.

Chessy is located in the eastern suburbs of Paris and is best known as the location of Disneyland Park, making this a great route for anyone travelling to the European home of Disney.

Ouigo: Services on Board

Ouigo trains are very basic when compared to other train services. That’s why they are able to offer a fast and efficient service at such a competitive cost. For instance, you won’t find a buffet carriage on a Ouigo train and there is no First Class section, either.

Everyone is in the same “class”, and if you want food and drinks, you will need to stock up before getting on the train.

Here are a few other things you need to know about services on Ouigo trains:

  • Toilets: You will find toilets on Ouigo trains and they all have easy access.
  • No WiFi: There is also no WiFi service offered on Ouigo trains. However, most journeys are completed in just an hour or two, so you don’t need to go without service for very long.
  • Baggage Options: Ouigo luggage rules are very generous and allow for two items. You can also take bikes and prams, providing they are folded and carried.
  • Ouigo Plus: A premium service that includes benefits such as Choose your Seat and Fast Track, the latter of which lets you board the train just 5 minutes before it leaves, as opposed to the usual 30 minutes.

Information on Ouigo Timetable and Timetable Changes

Ouigo trains will connect you to most major cities in France, including Paris, Strasburg, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Bordeaux, and Nantes. There are dozens of trains running every single day, from morning until night.

You can book hours or months in advance—it’s up to you. We’ll make sure you’re kept up to date with timetable changes and other important information.

Travel Sustainably with Ouigo Trains

The simplicity, efficiency, and rapidity of Ouigo make for a very eco-friendly package when compared to many alternatives.

For instance, all of Ouigo’s tickets are sold online, negating the need for printed tickets and ticket booths. They also remove non-essential carriages (including buffets and bars) and cram more seats onto the trains. In addition, by offering some of the most competitive rates on the market, they provide a valid alternative to air travel and car journeys, both of which have a much larger carbon footprint.

Ouigo’s parent company, SNCF, has taken great strides toward improving the efficiency and sustainability of its services over the years. It is always looking at ways to reduce its carbon footprint, including greener driving practices and greener energy consumption.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ouigo

Where Can I Buy my Ouigo ticket?

Do I Need to Print my Ouigo Train Ticket?

You can print your ticket if you want, but you can also just show your Ouigo ticket on your app. You’ll receive an electronic ticket when you buy Ouigo train tickets through Omio.

Can I Cancel my Ouigo Train Ticket?

Ouigo tickets are non-refundable, so cancellation of a Ouigo ticket will not give you a refund. However, you can exchange them for another Ouigo train ticket.

Can I Exchange my Ouigo Train Ticket?

You can change a Ouigo ticket up to an hour before boarding. However, you will be charged a small exchange fee.

How Many Bags/KG Of Luggage Can I Check in on the Ouigo Train?

Ouigo luggage allowances—like all Ouigo services—are very simple. All travellers are allowed the following: 1 bag no bigger than 36 x 27 x 15cm and 1 suitcase/bag no bigger than 55 x 35 x 25cm.

You can pay a small fee during the Ouigo booking process to carry additional bags. If not, you may be charged more at the gate.

Are Ouigo Trains Suitable for People with Reduced Mobility?

To get assistance with mobility, contact Ouigo directly. They may request that you show up an hour before departure so they can help you board the train.

Can Children Under the Age of 12 Travel Alone on Ouigo Trains?

Children under the age of 12 can travel for a low fixed fee on Ouigo trains. They can also benefit from free Ouigo Plus access, which allows them to choose their own seat. However, they cannot travel alone and all children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

Do Ouigo Trains Have WiFi?

Ouigo trains do not have WiFi.

Why are Ouigo Train Tickets so Cheap?

There are several reasons that Ouigo can afford to keep its prices so low.

The first is that it operates stripped-back trains, focusing on speed and simplicity as opposed to any luxuries like bars and buffets. You can still eat and drink on the train, but you must take your own food and beverages.

Secondly, there is no First Class and Second Class. It’s all one, and this allows them to keep the trains near capacity at all times. Combined with the fact that Ouigo is a huge company operating across dozens of stations, it means they can play the numbers game and keep profits high while margins stay low.

You’re still getting a brilliant service for your money and you’ll also be arriving at your destination quickly and without fuss. But if you want a drink, you’ll have to take it onboard; if you want extra baggage or a plug socket, you’ll need to pay extra.

Can I Change the Name on the Ouigo Ticket?

Yes, you can change the name on a ticket by visiting your Omio account and looking for the ticket. You may need to pay a small fee for this.

Do I Need a Covid Test to Travel on the Ouigo Train?

A COVID test is currently not needed to travel on Ouigo trains.

Can I Take Special Baggage on Ouigo Trains?

Providing it meets the baggage requirements, you can take it on the train with you. If not, you may need to pay extra. As noted previously, you can also take a pram and a bike with you, as long as they fold away.

Does the Ouigo Train Offer Special Services During the Journey?

Ouigo doesn’t have First Class. It doesn’t have beds, buffet carriages, or bars. It keeps everything very simple and focuses on speed, efficiency, and cost instead. The result is a train that’s comfortable, a ticket that doesn’t cost the earth, and a promise that you’ll arrive quickly.

In the end, that’s all that really matters.
