Barcelona-Avignon by train -- what would you do?

Jump to last reply

We will be leaving Barcelona for Avignon on a Saturday in September. In Avignon we plan to pick up a car and drive to our rental in St Remy, about an hour.

So here's the issue...there appears to be only 1 non-stop TGV between these two points, it leaves Barcelona a little before 5 and arrives in Avigon about 8:45PM (just under 4 hours). Our other choice is a a train that leaves at 9:25AM with just one change in Valence, arriving at 3:45. The actual time on the train in the latter case is actually pretty similar, there is a 90 minute layover in Valence.

I don't really mind the train change, although non stop would be easier (obviously we'll have luggage).And the extra half day in Barcelona would be fine. My real issue is that the non stop is half the price...70euro/pp instead of 150. there are 2 of us, so its a not insignificant amount of money.

I'm really not crazy about arriving at 9PM and then having to drive on unfamiliar roads in the dark to find a small apartment, and check in around 10PM (which may or may not be an issue ...have not actually booked the place yet).

What would you do? take the longer, more expensive but earlier train?
Spend an extra half day in Barcelona, save the money, but arrive in St Remy late and find your way in the dark?

Anybody have any other suggestions?
