In need of advice Train vs Car France & Germany

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to France and Germany. First part of my trip is in France,the Normany region, I'm landing at CDG. Do I take the train to Caen or do I rent a car? I would like to visit Honfleur, Omaha Beach and Mont Saint Michel. I am wondering what would benefit me best? I have never rented a car in Europe before so kind of nervous.

As for my journey from France to Germany I plan on using TGV. If I understand this correctly I can either print my ticket up at home or pick it up in France. I believe that going through TGV will same me money versus using Rail Europe.

As for Germany has anyone used the German Rail Pass? I found the 2nd or 1st Class Twin German Rail Pass, it looks too good to be true. If I order them, do I need to reserve seats? Or should I buy the tickets as I go?

I would appreciate any advice! Thank you very much!
