-In your arrivals terminal, take a look at the times of TGV, Thalys, Mainline and RER B regional express trains shown on the information screens. These screens are located opposite the exits from the baggage claim areas in Terminal 2 (A, B, C, D, E and F). Moving from one Terminal to the next is easy since the introduction of the CDGVAL subway, e.g. the trip from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 takes 8 minutes. You also need to validate your ticket with a punch machine (“Composter”) located at the escalators above the platform. Locate the approximate place to stand by checking the monitors on the platform against your seat number. +In your arrivals terminal, take a look at the times of TGV, Thalys, Mainline and RER B regional express trains shown on the information screens.

 +There does not appear to be a limit to the amount of baggage you can take on board the TGV, but bear in mind that these trains start at Lille & terminate past Le Mans so baggage space will be at a premium.
If you miss your booked TGV, don't panic, you can exchange your ticket for one on the following TGV. The exchange will cost the difference between the price of the original ticket & the price of the ticket on the day plus a handling fee (approx 30 EURO). Also, don't worry, they do speak English.
