Does the France Pass cover the RER trains to & from CDG airport as well as within Paris?

i see the RER trains from Gare du nord to CDG airport when i search the itineraries. Can you spend the day using the RER going around Paris and to and from CDG airport?

    Thank you for your question.

    The France Rail Pass does cover Line B of the RER, but only in the direction going from the CDG Airport into the city. Therefore, the France Rail Pass actually does not cover the RER going in the reverse direction from Paris to the airport. To use your France Rail Pass for the RER from the airport to the city, you would just have to be sure to go to the RER ticket window and request a 'contremarque' voucher prior to boarding.

    The RER departs every 7 to 15 minutes and the ride between the airport and the city takes about 35 to 45 minutes, stopping at stations that include Nord, Châtelet Les Halles, St. Michel, Luxembourg, Port Royal, and Denfert Rochereau.

    The only other RER line covered by a France Rail Pass is RER Line C, which runs between the city and Versailles (the 'Versailles-Rive-Gauche-Château' stop). Line C of the RER can be picked up at a number of local RER/Métro stops in Paris, including Austerlitz, St. Michel/Notre Dame, Invalides, Pont de l'Alma, and Champs de Mars/Tour Eiffel.

    Even though the France Rail Pass is valid to cover the RER lines I mentioned, it would be up to you if you want to expend a day of rail travel on your pass for such short trips. If you opt to not use your France Rail Pass on these RER lines, you would just pay to board locally.
