      Car Rental

      Paris Jan 25, 2017 at 3:02 PM

      I want to visit Auver Sur Oise when I am in Paris next time (April) and was thinking I might rent a car to drive there and back. I think there is only one train in and one train out per day (direct on weekends). What location would be the best to rent the car so that I can avoid driving through the streets of Paris? I don't mind taking the metro to get to the car rental place, I just want to find a location on the outskirts of Paris in the direction of Auver Sur Oise. Thanks in advance.

      How to: TGV to TER at Poitiers Gare

      Poitiers Mar 28, 2016 at 10:26 AM

      Hello folks,

      I will have a train change at Gare Poitiers, TGV to TER. TER is 2nd class and my ticket shows neither a VOITURE# nor a PLACE# but only says "SANS RESERVATION". I will have only 12 minutes to find my PLACE on TER. I will not carry much luggage but have no clue how to proceed to my TER and which VOITURE and which PLACE!

      Last year I had the opposite change from TER to TGV and was easy to find my PLACE from GARE monitors & COMPOSITION DES TRAINS monitor.

      But this one I never experienced. I hope someone here can give me some helpful guidance.

      Many thanks in advance.heart

      Max.

      We are arriving at La Pallice by cruise ship in April. Is there a shuttle bus that will take us to La Rochelle? There seems to be some answers but they are all very old. Fred Olsen want to charge us £25 each which is a lot of money for six miles. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    • Rent a car or no?

      La Rochelle May 28, 2015 at 8:38 PM

      Hello all! My fiancee and I are heading to France for our honeymoon, and will be staying in La Rochelle for one week. I am wondering if it is worth it to rent a car for the week that we are there to get out and see the countryside? Or will we want to stay in the city the whole time (i.e. is there enough in the city to keep us busy for a week)? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi all virtual tourists :)
      I have been searching for any cheap accomodation in Poitiers, I mean hostels that are from 10 to 15 or so euro per night, but urfortunately I haven't found any :(
      I am crazy about romanesque architecture and I would love to visit church in Poitiers and the one in Saint-Savin nearby, but I can only afford cheap accomodation ( 3 nights ).
      Does anybody have any suggestions ?
      I would be very grateful
