La Rochelle airport to Bordeaux.

Is it possible to get a train or bus from La Rochelle city centre to Bordeaux? How long would the journey take and approximate cost?

There are some trains, not very frequent though.

I did a quick search on www.voyages-sncf.com (I am travelling in the opposite direction later this year) which revealed these options for next Wednesday:

0616, 1122, 1206, 1558, 1649 (slow) and 2219

These take around 2hrs 20 minutes except for the 1649 which takes nearly 3 hours.

You will need to search for the exact day you are travelling to make sure you get the correct times.

As for fares, SNCF has commercial pricing, so the fare varies according to how far in advance you book, what month, day and time it is but 25,50 Euros was the average. BTW most of the trains do not require reservation but it is advisable.

Hope that helps.

Thanks cubsur. Yeah sounds good. I can get flights to La Rochelle for €40 return for two people with Ryanair so with a train fare of €50 for two people it works out considerably cheaper than flying with another airline direct to Bordeaux.
