Reviews & ratings Paris - Poitiers
Fast but able to see plenty of countryside and so enjoyed scenery. Comfortable seating. Good value for money. Our third form of travel on our holiday. Plane, car and now train? Would and will us train again.
All the TGV I took except one were late. I missed some correspondance. In all TGV at least toilettes were blocked. There was not enough place for luggages I would appreciate having the wifi in the TGV
My need we're met very well as I travelled up from La Rochelle to CDG picked up my grandson next morning and travelled back Just a really great experience,thank you
Excellent trip as usual
I was very happy with the train journey. Unfortunately the timetable did not allow for us to travel directly to CDG and then to our plane and we had to go up the evening before our flight. Sunday timetable is limited as expected.
With no need to visit Paris every trip I love that this train leaves from CDG and I do not need to go into Paris before heading south. Same for my return trip as I can return directly to CDG for my international flight home. Dining car food is very expensive and not much choice - take something with you.
Had a good experience on the TGV from Paris de Lion to Avignon, after great deal of confusion getting onboard as the carriages were numbered from 1-8 and then 8-1 again, our booking was for carriage 15 which turned out Thebes the second number 8, once we we resettled along with other passengers with the same issue the trip itself was good.
The day we travelled on the train it was quite a hot day. We found that the train was very hot and stuffy with no air flow.
1) I would like to see digital displays at the front of each carriage, that show the instantaneous speed of the train. 2) There is not enough space for luggage.
Convenient, reliable and direct. Would definitely recommend to others and use the service again.
Punctual, organised and professional. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to friends.
Excellent except that car numbers were not on platform or cars
Train was on time. Trip was rapid and comfortable. All arrangements and ticketing were correct.
This is only a short 1 1/2 hour journey by fast train so was over very quickly. Everything went very smoothly from booking to our return leg. The train it's self was very comfortable and i think well worth the extra money for 1st class.
I love travelling by train in Europe and I have used Rail Europe several times to book trains within France and from Paris to London. The best feature I think is the convenience of arriving at the CDG airport in Paris and being able to connect with a TGV soon after touchdown to get a direct train to destinations around France, in my case to Poitiers -just a 2 hr 20min trip. The trains are a super reliable and enjoyable way of getting around France. While in France I decided to drive from the Charentes to Provence and so had to change my return train plans - I was able to cancel my return train booking without penalty and buy an alternate ticket from Avignon back to CDG airport. Once I found Wi-fi, this was relatively easy to do although I needed the confirmation email as well as the ticket, which was a minor issue, but I was able to amend my plans without problem. The 3
