Trains in France – is this correct?

Jump to last reply

I will be taking 3 separate TGV trips within a 3 week period.

Paris to Strasbourg
Colmar to Avignon
Avignon to CDG

The dates are set. I have looked at PREM fares (using similar dates to what I’ll need)
And they are 40Epp/40Epp/45Epp seniors.

Then I looked at a rail pass (on Rick Steve’s website) and it would cost $406 USD for 2nd class/$500USD for 1st class.

I don’t see any savings by getting a pass.

So, am I correct that I should try to get the PREM tickets as soon as possible (3 months out) instead of buying a rail pass?

Thanks in advance for your help.
