CDG to Sarlat--Insane to Take This Train?

Jump to last reply

My son is meeting us in Sarlat on Tuesday, June 11. His plane arrives at CDG Terminal 2 at 11:25 am. There is a train to Libourne, leaving from Montparnasse at 14:46. If he is able to make this train, he can get to Sarlat himself. Otherwise, we have to pick him up in Brive, which we would prefer not to do.

I know he has to figure an hour to get through immigration and an hour to get to the Montparnasse station. I am trying to talk him into bringing only a carry-on, so there is no wait for luggage. Do magnetic swipe credit cards work at CDG to buy tickets for the train into Paris, or will he have to wait in line to buy a ticket? Would a cab be faster into the city mid-day on a Tuesday?

My other thought is to just have him buy a ticket to Libourne or Brive when he gets to Paris, based on the timing. I know that will be more expensive, but is there a possibility the train could be sold out?

Thanks for your help!
