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, based on how far in advance you book.

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.

30 day advance and 7 day advance prices are found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from today. These prices fluctuate daily based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price on a busy Saturday in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey on a Tuesday in winter.

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

  1. It is very easy to travel by train from Brussels to Marseille, with four or five direct trains serving this route each day and a journey time of 5 hrs 20 mins. The majority of the trains are TGVs run by French rail operator SNCF, but some services during summer are operated by Thalys. If the timing of the direct trains from Brussels to Marseille does not suit your schedule, there are additional options requiring a change of train at Lille Europe or Lyon Part Dieu.

    The route goes south-west from Brussels through Picardie and then skirts the eastern edge of Paris. After that it’s a quick journey south through Burgundy to cross the River Rhône east of Lyon. Almost before you know it, your train is in Provence. The last half hour of the journey offers fine views of the landscapes celebrated in the paintings of Cézanne.

    Bookings for this journey usually open three months prior to travel. However, the booking horizon may be extended during summer so tickets are available further in advance. The cheapest tickets are available when bookings first open.
