Which station does the TGV arrive at?

We are catching the train from paris to Tours & picking up our hire car from europecar at Tours pierre des corps train station. it has just occurred to me that there may be more than one train station in Tours! Does the tav arrive into this station? our rail europe ticket simply says Paris Austerlitz - Tours. Can anyone advise me on this?

Impossible to say without knowing which train you are on.

Go to www.tgv-europe.com/en and look for a train from Paris to Tours at the time when your train departs. Use Antarctica as the "Ticket collection country" to avoid being redirected to RailEurope. This web site will show you which stations the train uses.

You might also want to weep when you see the prices you could have got by booking with the train operator instead of through RailEurope.

There are two stations in Tours: Tours Centre and St Pierre des Corps (2km from Tours centre). TGVs arrive at both, most using St Pierre des Corps.

It is likely that your train will stop at St. Pierre des Corps where you can simply disembark and pickup your rental.

Note the hours for your rental company office there. Some have a two-hour lunch closure at St. Pierre des Corps. Avis, which was otherwise satisfactory, also refused to give us our car two hours before the rental time. Since they have no problem charging you for late return or fueling services, this seems a bit petty to me.
