Air

Just off the A20, 10km west of the city, Limoges Airport is a major UK gateway, served by budget carriers including Ryanair and Flybe, as well as Air France. Domestic destinations include Paris Orly, Lyon, Nice and Ajaccio (Corsica).

Taxis from the airport charge a flat-rate fare of €24 during the day, and €34 after 7pm and on Sundays.

Bus

Limoges’ bus station is across the tracks from the train station. RDTHV buses are geared towards school timetables, so there’s only one or two per day during the week.
