Getting here

Booking tickets

Book your tickets in English through SNCF

Take the fast Eurostar and TGV to the region from London St Pancras and Ebbsfleet, Kent.  Some trains travel directly to Poitiers or Angouleme, otherwise it is possible to take the TGV to Paris Gare de Nord in just over 2 hours then change to Paris-Montparnasse for the fast and efficient TGV service from Paris to Poitiers in around 90 minutes. Then just pick up your hired car from the railway station!

Car Hire

International rental car companies are located at airports and main line railway stations.
