To do so, you would take Line B of the Paris's RER commuter rail network to the Châtelet–Les Halles stop. At Châtelet–Les Halles, you would switch to M4 of the Métro to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-montparnasse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Montparnasse station</a>, from where the trains to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/la-rochelle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">La Rochelle</a> depart. The RER and Métro are not covered by the rail pass, so you would pay to board locally when you're there. The connection from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-charles-de-gaulle-airport-5748" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">CDG</a> to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/paris-gare-montparnasse" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/place/paris-gare-montparnasse">Montparnasse station</a> takes at least 55-60 minutes in duration.

On these trains, reservations are not necessary, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> is all you need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a> just to view schedules for trains from London to Poole. However, these trains depart 2-3 times every hour throughout the day, and the ride only takes about 2 hours.<br /><br />When you pull up the results of these searches, you will see that trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/paris">Paris</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/london">London</a> arrive into the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/place/london-st-pancras-international">St Pancras International station</a> in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/london">London</a>, while trains from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> to Poole depart from the Waterloo station.<br /><br />To get from the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/place/london-st-pancras-international">St Pancras station</a> to Waterloo, you would take the Piccadilly Line of the Tube to the Leicester Square stop. At Leicester Square, you would then switch to the Tube's Northern Line, which you would take right to Waterloo. The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> does cover the Tube, so you'd have to pay to board locally when you're there. The commute from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">St Pancras</a> to Waterloo via the Tube takes at least 30 minutes in duration, but I would still recommend allowing yourself at least 1 hour to make the connection.<br /><br /><b><u>Poole to London with a BritRail London Plus Pass</u></b><br /><br />Once again, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BritRail Pass London Plus Pass</a> will cover you on the route from Poole back to London.

However, these trains depart twice every hour throughout the day, and the ride takes between 1 and 1.5 hours.<br /><br /><b><u>Whitstable to Gatwick Airport with a BritRail London Plus Pass</u></b><br /><br />Connections from Whitstable to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-gatwick-airport-5742" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Gatwick Airport</a> involve changing in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London</a> along the way. From Whitstable to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/london">London</a>, there are trains that arrive into the London Victoria station and trains that arrive into the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-st-pancras-international" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">London St Pancras station</a>. You'll want to take a train that arrives into the Victoria station, because that is the station from where the Gatwick Express trains to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-gatwick-airport-5742" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">airport</a> depart.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-london-plus-pass-5894">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> is valid to cover you on the trains from Whitstable to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/city/london">London</a> and the Gatwick Express trains from London Victoria to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-gatwick-airport-5742" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Gatwick Airport</a>.

Meiringen is a stop along the way of the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/goldenpass-line-7546" rel="nofollow">GoldenPass</a> scenic trains from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/lucerne-interlaken" rel="nofollow">Lucerne to Interlaken</a>.

    Changed reply in topic of Is the France Rail Pass valid on the RER and Transilien lines in Paris? by Jeff to Hi Michelle,<br /><br />The objective of a rail pass is to cover the ticket costs for trains running between different cities within the country or countries included on the pass. Generally, rail passes do not cover metro/subway systems in European cities. For instance, in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/paris" rel="nofollow">Paris</a>, a rail pass would not be valid on the Métro, RER, or Transilien lines.<br /><br />Some cities do have city passes that will cover metro/subways and buses. If you want to check if such passes are offered for a city that you're visiting, click the 'Activities' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>) and then choose the country and city from the drop-down menus that appear. This will also enable you to shop any tours or other activities offered in a city..
