Our flights and hotels are booked for our French vacation June 15-30. Next step is to book trains between these three destinations. My husband and I will be coming from some business appointments in London on Eurostar June 15. I have already purchased those tickets. We will meet our two daughters in Paris (they are flying in from the US on June 15), then travel together:
Paris to Colmar on June 19 in the afternoon
Colmar to Avignon on June 24--a previous poster told me there is a direct train for this that arrives at 17:15 or so in Avignon
Avignon to CDG on June 29; stay in an airport hotel and fly home on June 30.
We know not to use the RailEurope site. Will probably go through capitainetrain.com. We plan to buy the lowest fares we can get so we want to purchase tickets as soon as they are available for these dates. When can I expect that to be? Any other suggestions/advice? Thanks!
