Best way to get from Paris to Nancy

Hi all,

I'll be traveling to France in October and I would like to visit my friend in Nancy while there.

I wanted to know if there are any other options to get from Paris to Nancy, except TGV, which seems quite expensive.

Please let me know what and where to search for.

Thanks so much!

You have left it a bit late to get the best prices for train travel. Tickets go on sale 3 months before travel, and the cheapest tickets sell out quickly. Prices keep going up as the travel date gets closer.

However, right now, for travel on 3 October I can see prices between €41 and €75.50. For travel on 28 October, there are prices between €30 and €57.60.

You can get train times and costs, and make bookings, in English at www.tgv-europe.com/en but use Antarctic as the "Ticket collection country" on the first screen to avoid being transferred to RailEurope, which has much higher prices and does not list all the trains. For notes on online booking, see www.nickbooth.id.au/Tips/FrenchTrain.htm

I think the only alternative to train would be rental car.
