Intercités is the classic service of SNCF. The Intercités lines are an important part of the French rail network.

Intercités by night allows you to travel at night on certain routes, in sleeper cars.

Renfe-SNCF trains are the result of a collaboration between France and Spain to bring the two countries together via a network of high-speed trains. There are two comfort classes – Turista (or Second Class) and Preferente (or First Class). Both classes have power sockets and comfortable seating.
