Train to Mantes La Jolie

Our new plan, Metro to Saint Lazare and train to Mantes La Jolie to rent a car in the train station from your Euro car, drive to Giverny and then off to driving 5 days in Normandy. Want to avoid driving car in Paris as this our first car rental inEurope, so this is my solution. Also our attempt to arrive at Giverny of early as possible. We will need to return our car to Caen train station on Saturday. Does anyone see a problem? From what I can see there are no car rentals in the train station at the Vernon.

My question is I am getting two versions for train to Mantes La Jolie. My common sense says SNCF, J, Green line. But this has popped up and do not understand, Ter Gare de Vernon. I like to understand.

It’s just different trademarked names for train services run by SNCF. Take the train that fits your schedule. Also there is a Transilien train that goes to Mantes la Jolie from Gare Montparnasse. Also, make sure you get off at the correct station in Mantes — there are two.

Both trains work as long as they stop in Mantes La Jolie. Same ticket, too.
