Quoting from the SNCF help page (in French): J’ai raté mon train ou je souhaite me rendre directement à l’aéroport. Que se passe-t-il ? Si votre voyage commence par un trajet en train, il est ...

However, irrespective of how early in the morning at night or late the train might depart, the afore-mentioned ...
