About Ouigo

Ouigo roughly translates as “yes go”, but it also sounds like “we go”. It’s the perfect brand name for a train service in France that’s used by millions of locals and tourists every year.

The brand is owned by Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français (SNCF), the national train provider in France, and it’s available in 18 stations. In 2021, the brand was also launched in Spain, where it operates a number of popular routes under the name Ouigo España.

In many ways, Ouigo works similarly to budget airlines. It doesn’t stop at the biggest stations, keeps the amenities basic, and charges extra for oversized baggage. As a result, it’s able to keep its prices low. As you’ll see when you travel, the cost of Ouigo tickets is much less than that of other long-distance train services.

Daily Ouigo Train Departures

You can buy Ouigo tickets for both conventional and high-speed trains, and the company runs dozens of trains in France on numerous routes every day. The trains run from morning to night and carry over 15 million passengers every year.

Between 2021 and 2022, Ouigo España also stamped its mark on the European travel industry, carrying more than 2 million passengers. This popular Spanish train service runs several routes to and from Madrid and in 2022, it opened up new routes to several popular Spanish seaside resorts.

Whether you’re travelling through France or Spain, you can take advantage of Ouigo’s services.

Ouigo: One Ticket to Rule Them All

With Ouigo, you don’t need to worry about whether you should go First Class, Second Class, Premium, Economy, or anything else. There are no “classes” here—everyone gets the same ticket and has the same benefits.

However, there are a few optional extras that you may consider adding to your train ticket in France when you make your Ouigo booking.

  • Electrical Outlet: For a small fee, you will be given access to an electrical port through which you can charge your phone, laptop, or tablet. It’s a good option if you have a long journey ahead and need to work or recharge.
  • Extra Baggage: Ouigo luggage options are very generous, but if you have a large item or multiple bags, you can arrange for extra space.
  • Pets: Pets under 6KG (14 lbs.) can be carried onboard providing they are in a carrier. If so, they will simply be classed as one of your luggage options. If they exceed this weight limit, however, you must pay extra for them.
  • Stroller/Buggy: When you book your Ouigo tickets, indicate whether you will have a stroller/buggy with you. You can then take it on the train. Just make sure you fold it up before you get on.
  • Quiet Seating: When making your Ouigo train reservation, consider if you will need to be in a quiet area or not. It’s a good option if you will be working or just want to take a quick nap. If so, you can pay a small fee to access such an area.

Ouigo: Services on Board

Travel France Sustainably with Ouigo Trains

Generally speaking, trains are an eco-friendlier option than cars and planes. They create less carbon emissions, and if more travellers take trains, the transport industry can greatly reduce its carbon footprint. This is especially true with Ouigo, as the trains are designed to accommodate as many travellers as possible, with no room wasted on buffet carriages and First Class seat.

Other sustainable options include green driving and parking methods, as well as the introduction of electronic tickets. Insisting that all tickets are bought online and sent to devices and computers means that less paper is used, less waste is created, and there is no need for additional equipment or ticket booths.

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.
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.
