Charles de Gal Shuttle or TGV?
« on: June 13, 2018, 12:34:45 AM »
Hi we've booked a November stay but we are flying for the first time rather than the euro star. Our flights have been booked with EasyJet via DLP. My question is do I book us on the shuttle about 138 for all 5 of us. or has anyone got the TGV from CDG to Marne Le Valle? I read it can take around 10 minutes?

I'm worried we'll be left hanging around ages for the shuttle bus OR
is the TGV a real pain takes ages?
Do I book TGV in advance encase the flight is late in?

Thank guys I know if anyone can help it will be you.  :)

Yes, the TGV does just take 10 minutes so significantly quicker than the shuttle if the timings work out for you... It's great, but of course if you miss it on a pre booked ticket, you're knackered. 

Even pre-booking the TGV it's still expensive.  When I flew, I took a print out of the TGV times with me & then just bought tickets on the day from the station at CDG.  Had the timing not worked out, then I had Magic Shuttle as my fall back plan.

So in summary, cost a little more to buy on the day, but worth paying the extra for the best flexibility. 

you can take a look here & get your train times & also get an idea of prices

As there are 5 of you, you may find booking a booking a cab might work out cheaper than 5 separate shuttle or TGV tickets... worth looking at.

Thank you so much. This was really helpful.  The shuttle is 138 for all 5 of us however the TGV is going to be around 160 so there isn't much in it cost wise. to be honest I want the least hassle.

I don't want to have to sit around waiting for the bus. I'll look at the timings for both.

I think a private transfer would work out best value and most convenient for your party size.
