Beziers trains and planes

Post by susie » Thu 29 Aug 2013 13:23

Anyone caught the navette from Beziers train station to airport. My sister is doing this tomorrow. Train arrives Beziers at 2.22, navette departs at 2.30. Anyone know if it is possible for a non-Usian Bolt to do it in eight minutes?

Cheers

Should be ok if your train isn't delayed. The stop for the navette is literally just outside the train station - turn right out of the door and stand about 20 yards away. I only did this once, last year, and was uncertain, so I asked a person standing around, and they were waiting for the navette too. It came, and all was well. I think it takes about 40 mins to the airport. Good luck. If it goes awry, then it would have to be a taxi I guess

We used the navette from Beziers out to the airport - no problems. It does seem a bit daft though, catching a bus outside a railway station to be dropped off at an airport right beside the railway line.

Thanks for your advice. Not all went to plan. My sister did do the difficult bit of catching the navette from the train station in the eight minute 'window', but it then went all around the houses picking up every person in Beziers. So when it did eventually get to the gare routiere, she had missed the connection to the airport. Helpful coach driver called her a taxi which was 28 Euros, so not too bad

All's well that ends well. When I did it, the navette did go up into the town, and stopped at the gare routière, but we stayed on the bus which then went out to the airport. Nice driver, by the sound of it
