Train or Bus from Nice to Port Grimaud

We arrive at Nice airport at 10.05 on the 31st August. I do know that there are bus or train links to Saint Raphael and then onward bus to Port Grimaud. Can you buy a ticket on the train and how regularly do the services run? Is it best to get the bus to Nice Ville or is Saint Augustine OK? I don't really want to buy a ticket in advance because of possible transpor delays and I believe that there is no refund or exchange on the train.

You can't buy a ticket on the train but you can find yourself having to pay a wopping fine on the train for not having a ticket. Best to get one.

10 in the moring will be fine for picking up a St Raphael-bound train from St Augustin. Take the first that comes along and change if necessary at Cannes for a SR bound one. There is a ticket office and ticket machines at St Augustin - the ticket machines take chipped Visa and Mastercard and its not too difficult to figure out.

I don't suppose you know roughly how much an adult ticket is. I've tried to find out but I don't think that their public transport websites are as good as the trains and buses here.

Pure guesswork, its a long time since I did this journey but its about twenty euros to St Raphael. Someone will no doubt correct me.
