Provence, Paris

train travel from Paris to Provence

I am looking for any advice for an alternative connection from Paris to Provence as the train out of the airport is like $1000 for a couple round trip.  Maybe that's what it will be, but any ideas for less $ is what I am hoping for.  Thanks!!!

I am not sure your dates, but when I just searched on http://www.raileurope.com/, tickets for two from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Aix-en-Provence were ~$600 round trip - which based on timing you should be able to find cheaper.

That's crazy expensive! What site are you looking on? Check out http://www.raileurope.ca/en/index.html

or the main sites for SNCF and TGV France.

Return for 2 people from Paris to Marseille should be around $300-400 in comfort class.

Hi Sue,


1000$ sounds a little prciey.

Have you tried directly on

http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/ ? It might also work out cheaper if you take the local train to the centre of Paris then go directly from Gare de Lyon. As a tip, the cheap tickets come out exactly 3 months before the travel date - so it's a good time to book.

Or you could look at this site. It's still French railways but these are cheaper trains that are still fst but only run a couple of times a day.

http://www.idtgv.com/en/

Other options would be car sharing with : http://www.covoiturage.fr/

or the bus.

But French trains are so and good, i'd say it's worth it to take the train.

There's also flying options, airfrance, easyjet etc. to Marseille, Nimes, Montpellier.


Hope this helps, 


Bon voyage!

Unfortunately the train has become very expensive. The best alternative is to fly to Marseille or drive there (8hours)

You can find tickets of train on voyages-sncf.com
I think the way and back ticket should be around 150€ per person.

If you want to make it less expensive and more funny experience you can search for people who share their car trip on blablacar.com

We flew to Paris to Nice on easyJet for pretty cheap, just about $200 per person roundtrip. Nice to Provence should not be too difficult!

You'll have to switch airports (there's a bus at CDG) but a plane ride from Roissy is your best option. Took me down to Marseille in no time.
