    It appears there is a Futuroscope TGV station if you are using the TGV. If you are going into the Poitiers station, it's a 20-minute taxi ride. Don't know how much, but there is a bus that would be cheaper (buses –lines 1 and E operated by Vitalis) vitalis-poitiers.fr/index.ph...

    You can get the Futuroscope information in English at http://uk.futuroscope.com/acces.php

    Have fun at Futuroscope.

    Thank you very much for the quick response.

    Yes, I have already looked at the bus timetable operated to the park from Poitiers using Vitalis web site (using Google translator to translate the details into English!!). We are arriving in the afternoon and the bus frequency seems to be limited around that time. The TVG train is in the evening at 5:28pm as far as I can see. Hence enquiring about the taxi fare in case we needed to make a quick journey into our hotel at the Futuroscope park.

    If the weather stayed good then probably we will think of exploring the town a bit before catching the bus to Futuroscope.

    Regards,

    Before I had a car for my stay in Poitiers, I had to take a taxi from the train station to another town past Futuroscope. I remember that the fare meter was about 35Eur when we passed the park.

    I forgot my second part...

    Since taxi it ~35Eur each way, it may be cheaper to rent a car for the day.

    That is very useful to know and gives me a pretty good idea about the fare I can expect.

    Thank you very much.
