    Easy travel, but not too cheap |
    "The trains from Toulouse to Cahors is one of the only modesign of transportation available. Not exactly cheap, but fast and reliable. Seats are comfortable, plenty of room for luggage. If no ride shares really available, it is a good fallback option. "

    "despite having seats allocated, the same seats were already occupied by people who also had been allocated same seats. There is not enough room for luggage and most train stations in France do not have lifts or ramps so luggage is a real problem especially if you have not packed light "

    "My husband and I bought first class tickets because they were on sale. Initially there was a group of people who were not supposed to be in the first class cabins and they were talking loudly. When the inspector came, they had to go to their "rightful" seats and there was quiet. Everything was good except that on the end leg, there was no water in one of the toilet cubicles. "
