At CDG, how much time to allow between plane and TGV?

Jump to last reply

Well, now that train tickets have opened for our arrival date, I'm wondering what your experiences have been arriving at CDG and immediately taking a train to your destination? How long does it generally take to clear Passport Control? I read somewhere that you should plan on 2 hours. Here's our situation:

We'll be 2 adults (mother & grandmother) with 3 children, ages 12, 10 and 5. I know that will slow us down more than what I'm used to managing on my own. We arrive at 12:55 p.m. on IcelandAir and of course the very best connection to get to Tours before the rental car dealerships close is a TGV at 14:09. The next TGV isn't until 16:21.

I'm afraid the early one is just not possible, but before I opt to have us sit in the airport an extra 2.5 hrs, after our flight from Minneapolis, I wanted to ask advice from you all. My daughter speaks French and we've traveled a fair amount, but we know there are times you just have to admit you can't achieve miracles. Is this one of them?
