TGV from Paris (or Orleans) to Barcelona

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be leaving Orleans (where we will have a car) and want to take the TGV to Barcelona. We will be spending the night in Orleans, and then would like to catch the 07:15 TGV to Barcelona the next morning.

- would it be best to drop off the rental in Orleans (the night before) and train to Paris Gare Lyon to catch the TGV?
- would it be best to drive from Orleans to Paris Gare Lyon and drop off the rental car there?
- should we avoid the TGV and just train from Orleans to Barcelona? We're looking for the quickest, but if too inconvenient we'll consider alternatives

I was looking at raileurope.com for the TGV tickets. They're not available for June yet, but a current ticket price is $247 / person. Is there a cheaper place to purchase tickets?

Thanks for any help.
Mark
