Fastest Way from Brive-la-Gaillarde to Charles de Gaulle

by vivemafille Online Now Jan 11, 2011 at 4:13 PM

I'll be traveling from Brive-la-Gaillarde to Charles de Gaulle on July 27. There doesn't appear to be a nonstop TGV on that day, so we're talking 6-7 hours on the train. Should I drive to Toulouse and fly?

If I choose to fly from Brive to Orly, how much time (and money) will it take me to get over to CDG?

Thanks in advance.

    The on line timetable only shows trains up to 90 days in advance ie within the reservation window. That's why July isn't visible yet.

    The current printed timetable has these trains from Brive to Paris on weekdays

    0439 arrive Paris Austerlitz 0847
    0636 arrive CDG 1131 TGV
    0745 arrive Austerlitz 1151
    0930 arrive Austerlitz 1340
    1341 arrive Austerlitz 1740
    1438 arrive Austerlitz 1841
    1617 srrive Austerlitz 2040
    1804 arrive Austerlitz 2221
    1907 arrive Austerlitz 2325

    There may be detail changes when the summer timetable comes into force in mid-July. Reservations and therefore confirmed timings should be available at the end of April.

    Do you know that there are three weekday flights between the new Brive airport and Paris Orly?

    I hope that helps.

    They just don't have July up yet on the web site. Use the same day (Tuesday, I think) in January and see what is on offer. There appear to be quite a few choices and the TGV is amongst them.

    You may find some helpful information at voyages-sncf.com/leisure/en/...

    If you can drive to Toulouse, can you drive to CDG? Just curious. I'd take the train if possible.

    Enjoy your trip.
