Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. The journey by train from Barcelona to Paris is a tribute to high-speed rail. This route was launched in late 2013 and has transformed travel between the two cities. Comfortable TGV trains speed from Barcelona to Barcelona in just 6 hrs 30 mins. Train frequency varies by season – peak summer frequencies are the highest with four trains per day. At those times of the year when there are just two direct trains per day, additional connections from Barcelona to Paris are available with just one change of train at Perpignan, Montpellier or Lyon.

    Booking opens around four months in advance, and that’s when you’ll find the cheapest tickets. The lowest fares sell out quickly on this key cross-border route, so book early for the best deals. If you’re having trouble finding tickets, contact us and we’ll email you as soon as booking opens.


    Barcelona to Paris

    Direct TGV trains leave Barcelona for Paris two to four times per day. These TGV services leave from Barcelona Sants station and arrive in Paris at the Gare de Lyon. Trains stop six to ten times on their journey to Paris depending on which train you take. All trains stop at the historic cities of Girona, Perpignan and Montpellier. The early part of the journey affords good views of the Pyrenees and a little later you’ll traverse the fine landscapes of the Languedoc coast before joining the high-speed line to Paris.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
