Which train from CDG to Avignon, and Prems or Loisir?

Jump to last reply

Our flight is scheduled to land at CDG at 6:55. We plan to take a TGV to Avignon. We don't check any bags, so in terms of timing, our only concerns are allowing a cushion in case the flight is delayed, and the amount of time it takes to get through customs and immigration.

There is an 8:30 AM train but I'm worried 95 minutes may not be enough time if our flight is delayed. The next train is at 10AM so that seems safer with a 3 hour cushion.

The 10AM has Prems available for 40 Euro or Loisir for 70 Euro. I gather the Loisir tickets can be exchanged on the same day for a 10 Euro fee -- is this true even after the train has departed? In other words, if we miss the train we're booked on and it has already left, can we rebook on any of the later trains that day for 10 Euro? (I know the tickets aren't returnable after the train has departed, but we're not worried about being able to return them, only exchanging them for a later train.)

Thanks in advance for any advice!
