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.

There are also Intercités trains to Toulouse from Paris which still take the older conventional route.
The plus of taking these trains is that they can be the cheapest option when booking tickets.

Users of Eurail and Interrail passes should take the InOui services, the reservation fees for the Intercités services are the same price, but the InOui services are faster.
