French Rail Pass?

Jump to last reply

Hello. I'm planning a last minute, three week trip to France in May/June. I used frequent flyer miles, and could only find plane tickets in and out of Paris.

We missed the window for buying train tickets at a good price. I was researching, and I came upon the option of a French Rail Pass. Our trip plans aren't quite solid yet, but there will probably be four days when we'll be taking long train rides, including Paris to Annecy, Annecy to Avignon, Avignon to Nice, and Nice to Paris.

A four day pass for two is $432, and we're going to be paying at least $200 just for CDG to Annecy, so on the surface, it seems like the pass might t be a better bet. I need to do more research, but I was wondering why I never see this option mentioned here. In other words, is there some drawback I'm not seeing? Thanks!
