    Yes, you can use the France Rail Pass for trains between Paris and Avignon. Rail passes cover the ticket costs for trains between different cities in the country or countries included on the pass.

    Trains between Paris and Avignon are TGV trains, and TGV trains would require reservations in addition to the pass. For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by entering a route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com) and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with when you're prompted (i.e. the 'France Rail Pass').

    Our website has two different entries for Avignon: 'Avignon TGV' and 'Avignon'. 'Avignon TGV' refers to the Avignon TGV station, and 'Avignon' refers to the Avignon Centre station. Most trains from Paris to Avignon will only arrive into the Avignon TGV station, but there are some that arrive into the Avignon Centre station. Therefore, you can type either one of these entries in the arrival field when doing your search from Paris to Avignon, but you will get more options by typing 'Avignon TGV'.

    Generally, trains in France can be booked once within 90 days of an intended date of departure. Passholder rates (reservations) for trains between Paris and Avignon can sell out quickly, so it would be recommended that the reservations be booked as soon as it becomes possible.
