    Changed reply in topic of Loire Valley to Montpellier - changing stations in Paris by Jeff to Hi Mike,<br /><br />Yes, you're correct that you would have to transfer from the Montparnasse station to the Gare de Lyon station. Trains from the Loire region (St Pierre des Corps and Le Mans) arrive into the Montparnasse station, while trains to Montpellier depart from the Gare de Lyon station.<br /><br />To commute from Montparnasse to Gare de Lyon, you would take M4 of the Métro to the Châtelet Les Halles stop. At Châtelet Les Halles, you would switch to M14 of the Métro and take it to Gare de Lyon. The ride on M4 and M14 between Montparnasse and Gare de Lyon takes at least 15 to 20 minutes, but I would still advise allowing yourself at least an hour to make this transfer. If you feel more comfortable, you might want to allow yourself even more time, possibly even up to 2 hours. You would pay to take the Métro locally when you're there.<br /><br />Actual official porter service is no longer offered at stations in Europe, but you should still be able to request assistance at stations the size of Montparnasse and Gare de Lyon. You can ask at the station in St Pierre des Corps or Le Mans before you travel that day.<br /><br />You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. To arrange for a connection time of your own choosing, you would break up your search and do a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search from St Pierre des Corps to Paris or Le Mans to Paris and then another search for trains from Paris to Montpellier. Trains comprising of the connection are <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train/tgv-7537" rel="nofollow">TGV</a> high-speed trains..

    Changed reply in topic of Can I go from Chamonix to Zermatt with a Swiss Travel Pass? by Jeff to Hi Susan,<br /><br />Connections from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/chamonix" rel="nofollow">Chamonix</a> to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/zermatt" rel="nofollow">Zermatt</a> take about 4 hours in duration and involve 3 train changes along the way; once in Vallorcine, once in Martigny, and then once in Visp. The segments from Chamonix to Vallorcine and Vallorcine to Martigny represent the famed Mont Blanc Express scenic route. As a bonus of the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>, the Mont Blanc Express is covered (even though it's in France). You can validate your pass right there at the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/chamonix" rel="nofollow">station in Chamonix</a> before you board.<br /><br />Reservations are not accepted on any of these trains, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/swiss-pass-5934" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> is all you would need to board.<br /><br />For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for the segments from Chamonix to Martigny and Visp to Zermatt. However, schedules from Martigny to Visp are not able to be viewed on our website; For your reference, these trains depart 3-4 times every hour throughout the day, and the ride from Martigny to Visp takes 40-60 minutes..

For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/paris-lausanne" rel="nofollow">Paris to Lausanne</a> by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Two-Country Select Pass’). Generally, these trains can be reserved within 120 days of an intended departure date.<br /><br />Trains from Lausanne to Visp and Visp to Zermatt do not accept reservations, so the rail pass would be all you'd need to board. For planning purposes, you can still use the route search feature under 'Book Train Tickets' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) just to view schedules for the route from Lausanne to Zermatt.<br /><br />Trains from Visp to Zermatt run along a section of the famed Glacier Express scenic route..
