In 2022, August 15 falls on a Monday. It will be a long weekend, the last before the start of the school year. So, is it still possible to find a place to escape?

Can the French still reserve a train seat for the long weekend of August 15? “1.1 million travelers have already booked, but there are still 200,000 places available“, explains journalist Christelle Méral, Sunday August 7, on the 19/20 set of France 3. “The most popular destinations are often sold out, such as Biarritz (Pyrenees-Atlantiques), Bordeaux (Gironde), Toulouse (Upper Garonne), Annecy (Haute-Savoie) or Montpellier (Hérault)”, specifies the journalist.

When there are places left, prices go up. You have to pay 200 euros for a round trip between Paris and Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône). “To pay less, you have to take the bus: 130 euros for Paris-Marseille, but for a ten-hour trip“, says Christelle Méral. Finally, by plane, Corsica is rather affordable. You have to spend 170 euros for a round trip between Paris and Bastia (Haute-Corse).
