London to Avignon - Eurostar/TGV

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

Hopefully someone has some advice on what to do in this scenario. My parents will be travelling from London to Avignon via Eurostar/TGV combination in June. They are travelling just before the service runs direct from London to Avignon - so a change is required in either Lille or Paris.

Our current thinking is to transfer in Lille (it seems easier to do the change of trains).

So, the dilemma:

1) Eurostar is on sale now (6 months in advance) and has some reasonably good fares (~ 34 pound each) to Lille.

2) The TGV from Lille to Avignon is not on sale for about a month.

Is it best to wait a month and buy it all as one ticket (as I believe you can be ticketed all the way through), or is it best to just buy the Eurostar earlier - while it's cheaper - as the price of it will go up, and therefore a combined ticket will end up more expensive?

I assume that there are sufficient trains from Lille to Avignon - such that if we pick a time (e.g. arriving at Lille at 11.30am), there won't be an arduous long wait for a TGV.

Any information appreciated, as always!

Also, as an aside - Paris remains an option - but as mentioned, I think it would be easier to transit via Lille.
