I booked my onward rail trips to Luxembourg and Frankfurt through RailEurope, with the option to print the tickets at home. However, when I booked this particular trip, the ONLY option I was given was ticket delivery to my home address! Imagine my horror, as I had only booked it four days before the trip, and I live ten of thousands of miles from France where the tickets were meant to be issued! I panicked, but still proceeded with the purchase. What I didn't know was, RailEurope has a regional representative in Singapore near where I live! Fair enough, I got my tickets two days before I traveled to France! I was overjoyed! The train trip itself was problem-free, and it departed on schedule. I have always had faith in the European rail system, and this has been fortified many folds when RailEurope handled my purchases with no trouble at all! Will I buy rail tickets through RailEurope again in future? Of course I will! In fact, I will encourage others to do it! Bravo, RailEurope!

An excellent experience ( 5 star) if only I could have print the ticket at home. Being an overseas customer, I had to pick up the ticket at the agency in the country were I live. This was quote an "old days" experience !!!

- "No direct train to CDG Airport" Choi Ha l. 31/05/2014
There is no direct train from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport. We had to take the train from Reims to Paris East Station and walked for 10 minutes with luggage to Paris North Station. Taxi at such peak hours is not an option. It was raining and the streets were full of traffic and people. Finding the right counter to buy a ticket from Paris North Station to the airport is very testing. Having queued for half an hour, we were told that we needed to go to a counter at the corner of the big ticket hall. Why you cannot get all kinds of ticket from any ticket sale counter? There were no English signs on this. The train from Paris North Station to the airport was fully loaded with commuters. The particular train that we took stopped abruptly short of two stations. All passengers were told to leave the train and wait for the next train to the airport. We did not understand the French announcement but followed those surprised looking passengers to disembark. Again, we had to take our luggage and braced the rains to take shelter, and waited for another train to come. Why there was not a better way to go from Reims to Charles de Gaulle Airport? Or there was one but not shown up when we booked online? I would like to have some feedbacks so that we can be smarter travellers next time.
- "Dirty" Ana s. 10/01/2014
I think the train was a little bit dirty (the tables, the seats...). For such a journey (a tgv train) and for what we paid, I think there should be more attention to that details.
- "First experience was excellent" Marion r. 12/11/2013
First time on the fast train and I liked it. Very comfortable. Personnel were very helpful.
- "Lux to Paris" Kenneth b. 07/07/2013
Fine, the trip was pleasant, quick and reasonably comfortable. For first time users the carriage numbers were hard to see and we didn't know which end of the train our carriage would be so we had to really hurry to get to it and get on with heavy cases.
