Reviews & ratings Poitiers - Paris
Very nice, fast and comfortable trains. I love travelling by TGV. I live in Lezay, about 50 mins drive from Poitiers so is there a station closer and what is planned for the new train line close to where I live? Also, I don't understand the pricing. My ticket cost 79.50 Euros and the advertising says "from € 20". I have pasted the text from a Google search: Train Poitiers Paris from € 20 - Timetable
It was a brand new coach. Very clean and comfortable.
Travelled 2nd class on TGV, upstairs in a relatively new train. Very comfortable and on time with delivery to CDG Aeroport in time for our flight home.
On-time, great value if you book well in advanced. Easy to navigate and staff were very friendly.
I got my ticket at the train station from the machines. I tried to follow your instructions, but I had some difficulties. Machine asked my name although it was not written in your instructions. When I entered my full name, I ve got error message. After many trials I found that I shouls enter just my family name. Instructions should me more clear especially for the new users.
TGV delayed due to technical problems on separate occasions and lack of luggage space in first class coaches which severely inconvenienced us
This train was stuck for two hours and as a non French speaking tourist it was extremely disappointing that none of the announcements were in English to inform what was going on. When you've been traveling from New Zealand for the best part of a day, rude French staff is all you need. I'll hire a car next time, it would have been cheaper as well.
I learned that I could take the train direct to Charles de Gaulle Airport and had no trouble changing my ticket at the station. The day was dark and foggy, and as the morning skies lightened, the countryside began to roll past swathed in mists. It was intensely beautiful. A magnificent way to end a vacation. Clean. Fast. Comfortable. Convenient. Relaxing. The change of train in Poitiers couldn't have been easier. Plenty of space to stow luggage. I wish we had high-speed trains in the US!
We have booked through online booking system. The system is easy to use, and the print@station option is good. But there are not enough print station at CDG airport, always a long queue for the few station. And we travel in a group of 3, but we have to make the booking separately as this is business trip. We can't sit together as there is no option to choose seat. Would appreciate seats selection to be implemented for online booking
Unfortunately the air conditioning was not working well. As the train was packed the trip was uncomfortable.
i purchased the tickets for this trip online months before and didn't think much until i had to print them at the station. i didn't receive a confirmation number and only had a booking number. needless to say i was trying to print at the station and was having a really hard time. i went to the ticket line to speak to someone and the man there was incredibly rude (this is in the gare of poitiers). he was giving me a hard time asking why i didn't receive the email and so forth. fortunately he was able to find my reservation and i was able to board on time. but that experience was not pleasant. FYI, please tell people, especially the ones who don't speak french, that is just easier to print the tix at home. the trip on the train was great though. fast and easy
Train arrived on time, at the correct place. Seat was allocated, comfortable, plenty of luggage space available, at this time. Plug available for laptop. Excellent service!
I have no complaint with RAILEUROPE, but I do with the SNCF and I will make a complaint to them.
Very convenient having the station in the airport but it means that there is always a crowd of people jostling to get on the train, often with large suitcases. This creates issues with luggage storage particularly for upstairs seats on the double decker coaches as lugging 20 kg suitcases up the narrow stairs is no picnic. Other than that we cannot fault the trip, ticket issuing efficient, seats very comfortable and arrival on time.
The trains were on time.There were no problems to find our seats and everything worked well. But in the buffet-coach the menucard promised more than it could keep. It was rather poor.
