Can't book reservation for round-trip between Paris & Rennes if I make my return to Paris the next day

I'm having trouble booking a round trip reservations from Paris to Rennes and back. I wanted to leave on Aug 5 and return Aug 6 around 7pm. I can see train times returning to Paris from Rennes if I do a same day trip, but I get a notice that there are no times available on Aug 6 to return to Paris if I try and book the reservation for two days (Aug 5 and Aug 6). Am I doing something wrong or is that not a possible option?

    Hi Karen,

    I do not show there to be any issues preventing the return from displaying on the requested date. I would recommend trying it by doing a separate search for each segment, rather than one 'round-trip' search. Therefore, do one search just for your outbound from Paris to Rennes on August 5th, add the departure you want to your shopping cart, click 'Continue Shopping', and then go back to add a return from Rennes back to Paris for August 6th. If you still don't see the return options, please call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday and 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT on Saturdays.

    Trains between Paris and Rennes are TGV high-speed trains.

  • Thank you so much for the advice. I really appreciate it. I did buy the Paris Pass since for my family so we can see the museums and take the city transit. We're staying 8 full days in Paris and I wanted to surprise my autistic son with an overnight trip to Mont St. Michel.

    It seemed like the best option is to take the train to Rennes and then the bus to Mont St Michel.

    I keep reading about needing a particular type of pass if you are not a citizen of a country in the European Union. I want to make certain buy the correct tickets. If I just book and pay for this trip do I need to buy the Eurail Pass for 2 days or can I book the point to point ticket since we're only planning this excursion from Paris?

    I so appreciate your comments.
