Train from Charles de Gaulle Airport to Paris

October 11, 2019

Hi jet-setters it’s Calvin I’m at
Charles de Gaulle Airport Terminal 1 right now and I’m about to take the RER
into Paris which is a fantastic quick economical way that you can between the
airport and the city and it’s super easy I’m gonna show you how to do it I’m
going to do a whole how to let’s go along for the ride So the first thing you need to do is get
the shuttle between Terminal One and the train station for the RER you go
down to think to level two I’m at right now it’s on the elevator when you leave
immigration you push that button and you come down here and you see this sign
like you see behind me you take a short little shuttle we’re gonna go two stops
before we get to the train station and it’s free you don’t have to buy a ticket okay so we’ve got to the second stop on
the little transfer train and now we’re at the main station for the RER this is
where we are gonna buy the tickets to go to Paris so the next thing
we need to do is buy tickets now the machines take cash and credit cards and
coins so pretty much take anything sometimes I’ve had trouble with my
American credit card but not always it seems to be very tender
temperamental so we’ll see how we do today basically you’ve got to get a
ticket and then we’re gonna go through the turnstile and when you go through
the turnstile you got to make sure that you validate the ticket otherwise the
gate won’t open and you have to keep the ticket because we needed again when we
get to central Paris okay so I’m on this train right now I
got it from track 23 24 and it’s always the same practice that first trains two
Paris that’s all you have to do you can check the drains one goes fast
and makes up of two stops or three stops and one makes every single stop and
when the one that makes every single stop but don’t bring this when you get
on it both gets Paris. I’m going to Les Halles off which is the stop after Gare de Nord
but no matter where you want to go with Paris basically these trains connect to
somehow or another into the system that will get you there ..this is a great way to get
into Paris and then get onto the metro system we’re on the RER blue line and if
you’re worried about where you’re at there’s a map that you can follow along
the way most of the time these trains don’t have a lot of space for luggage on
here and sometimes they get very crowded but everyone who Paris is kind of used
to it there annoyed probably with tourists taking up all the space but no
a pretty fast trip I think it’s gonna take about 25 minutes I think okay I’m at my final stop now which is
Les Halles … this is a major transportation hub where you can catch lots of
different metros you can also do it at Gare De Nord which is the station just
before this one and make sure you keep your ticket as I said you need that to
get out of the station but this ticket is also valid on the metro system for a
couple more hours or an hour at least so you can use it to get to other spots in
Paris that this is not your final destination
so I hope this helped everyone if you’re looking at this video of probably going
to Paris so I hope you have a fantastic time when you come if you liked it hit

    Nice filming! One comment: there is no eliason in Les Halles. Thus It's pronounced "lay `aal" with almost a glottal stop, instead of "layz aal".

    Planning to go there as well. Thinking between uber or public transit whichever easy and makes sense. Train is cheap and can be fun seeing more local folks there and stay safe for sure.

    I was researching and reading about this and I got nervous but then I stumbled upon your video and you make it so easy to understand. Thank you!

    Fab video. Is it possible to have music down slightly as sometimes it's too loud so it's hard to hear you. I found this video so helpful though as I'm doing that journey soon and want to know what to expect. Subscribed and can't wait for more videos!!

    Helpful, but I still do not know what "Mont 1 et 2" on my ticket means. I hope I can figure it out and not end up in China.

    Hi Calvin…Thanks for sharing this great video….Though you have mentioned in your video that we could use the RER ticket in metro ..I would like to know if there is any zone travel restriction on it..for example can I use the same ticket to go to La defence.
