How to best plan a trip from Bordeaux

Vacation, honeymoon, business...careful preparation is the key to any successful journey, whether your trip is planned several months in advance or a spur-of-the-moment decision.

Smooth travel is often the precursor for an excellent stay when you arrive at your destination. One of the best ways to plan your trip is by opting for a package deal. By booking with TGVair, you’ll enjoy the convenience of an all-in-one package that lets you bypass the need to reserve each of your train and plane tickets separately.


Offered by Corsair and the SNCF (French Rail), this travel package incorporates a train, shuttle, and plane ticket into one single reservation. For example, when traveling from Bordeaux to Reunion island, you’ll first catch a high-speed train (TGV) from the world’s wine capital to Paris. Upon arriving at the train station in Paris, a shuttle will be waiting to take you to the airport (Orly 4).

From there, you’ll board a Corsair flight to Reunion island. TGVair organizes the entire journey for you, from the train ride to the French capital to the flight to your final destination.

Useful informations for a departure from Bordeaux

If your trip begins in Bordeaux, you’ll first catch a high-speed train (TGV) at the Saint-Jean train station in the Saint-Jean Belcier district of the city. Modern and inviting, this train station is easily accessible from anywhere in Bordeaux, thanks to the city’s outstanding network of public transportation.

Choose from city buses, intercity coaches, streetcars, shuttles, and taxis. The station is equipped with several parking areas for your car, motorcycle, or bicycle. And inside, you’ll find a number of convenient stores, cafés, and restaurants.

Traveling from Bordeaux with TGVair is easy. The first step is to make a reservation. You’ll receive a confirmation email with all the information regarding your trip, including your destination and the date and time of your departure. Bring a copy of this confirmation to the station on the day of your trip, arriving at least 30 minutes early so you have plenty of time to pick up your train ticket and the shuttle voucher for when you arrive in Paris.

Upon arriving at Orly Airport, you’ll be welcomed by TGVair service agents who will check in your luggage and print out your boarding pass for your flight.

Bordeaux : your gateway to the world’s best destinations

Convenience is just one of the many advantages of the 3-in-1 TGVair travel package.

Another benefit is the ability to pick from a variety of different destinations. Corsair and the SNCF (French Rail) have come up with a number of exclusive destinations that are perfect for all kinds of travel. Looking for just the right spot for your honeymoon or a romantic getaway for two? Fly to the beautiful island of Mauritius by booking your TGVair ticket from Bordeaux to Mauritius.

Mauritius Island is blessed with a wonderful springlike climate all year long, not to mention some truly magnificent beaches. To start with, you’ll catch a high-speed train (TGV) from Bordeaux to Paris’s Massy TGV train station. Once there, a shuttle will take you to the airport (Paris Orly Sud), where you’ll board a Corsair flight for Mauritius.
