Nancy and Metz and two relatively large cities, close to each other along a North-South axis. They are not big enough to support two distinct airports, two high-speed train lines (which necessarily run East-West since they come from Paris…), etc. Consequently, many infrastructure projects are built half-way between the cities, which is not really satisfying ...

I know an excellent service that has a highly informal interaction and is able to make suggestions based on vague requirements. It can ask questions to refine your requirements, and is even able to suggest modifications to those requirements if it thinks you can find a good deal. It has access to all the other websites that offer cheap travel, and can pick ...

Well this is one good thing about backpacker hostels. In a hostel you still may need to wait until check in time, but they should always have one or more common areas with couches, beanbags, hammocks, deckchairs, etc. where you can doze off. They also have shared bathrooms so you can have a shower almost any time. This doesn't mean you have to sleep in a ...

Nancy is a medium-sized town, 1½ hour away from Paris by train. That's too small to sustain flights between Paris and Nancy. The Metz/Nancy airport has infrequent connections to a few other French towns which lack convenient train connections, and to a few international cities that people fly to from Nancy. But Nancy's main airport is Paris. There are two ...

The nearest airport to Nancy that handles commercial traffic is the Metz–Nancy–Lorraine Airport, which is somewhat far from the town of Nancy. According to Wikipedia: Ground transportation A shuttle bus to Nancy and Metz meets every departing and arriving flight. The journey takes about 30 minutes and costs 8 euros. Since this is a smaller ...

What about adioso It gives you the option to specify a destination city, country, region, continent or even simply 'anywhere', 'international' or 'domestic'. You can also specify a date or a date range for either outbound or inbound flights: It then lists the results in a very neat way as if they were packages: The only thing I wasn't able to find ...

Fly to CDG and Take the TGV Of all the already mentioned solutions, I think the sanest are either the TGV from CDG to Gare Lorraine TGV, followed by another train to Nancy. Or CDG to Gare de l'Est via RER/metro, followed by a TGV to Nancy Gare Thiers (the central station). Since I currently live here I can only say "been there, done that". Sounds awfully ...

There are flights from the USA to Lyon and then from Lyon to Metz/Nancy, but I am not sure which airlines have interline agreements with Airlinair (who apparently are the only carrier to serve Metz from Lyon). You might need to book separate tickets, though you could check both KLM and Air France websites. You could fly to Amsterdam, Paris or Luxemburg and ...

I guess, you are looking for a list of this kind: The Most Popular Online Booking Sites in Travel This summarizes the country wise usage of each site so that you can get an idea depending on the area you want to visit. However, this list mostly shows the names of various international websites in use which may show you discounts and offers in the first ...

Promoting a comment to an answer I think what you want is a Day Use Rate. Not all hotels offer them, but many do, especially around airports. As the name suggests, it's the use of a room in the hotel during the day, but not overnight. Typically, you'll have to be out by late afternoon, so that the room can be cleaned in time for a guest to use it from ...

I support your original idea: Flying to Strasbourg SXB, taking a local train from the airport downtown (costs like €4, can be bought at the station, and takes like 20 minutes), visiting the Strasbourg city centre since it's really beautiful, and then taking a TER train from Strasbourg to Nancy (the ticket costs at most €25, less if you book in advance, it ...

I've found Groupon Getaways helpful for this sort of "I want to travel somewhere on a budget within these timeframes/preferences" request. You can choose where in the world you would like to travel or what type of holiday you would like (eg "beach"), enter in your dates, and relevant options will appear. Some include flight + hotel, some only hotel. They are ...
