Paris to Montpellier by train

Montpellier has two stations served by the high speed trains from Paris, St-Roch station has a location convenient for the city centre, but a new high speed line has built to the south of the city and the Sud-de-France station is on this new route, so the journey time to Montpellier-Sud de France is around 15 mins faster.

Montpellier-Sud-France has more convenient access by car, but taking a combination of a free-shuttle bus and tram to the heart of the city takes around 25 mins.
Therefore the journey guides below solely focus on the trains which serve Montpellier St.Roch.

You can only take high speed trains from Paris to Montpellier-St Roch station, but both the regular TGV InOui services and low-cost, but more basic, Ouigo services share the route.
It's particularly worthwhile to click on the Train Guides below so that you can compare the two train services.
However, if you need to arrive at a specific time you will often have to take one train service or the other.
The Ouigo services can plug gaps between the TGV InOui departures.
