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.

  1. Taking the train from Chambéry to Bourg-Saint-Maurice (for Les Arcs) is very easy. Chambéry is the natural jumping-off point for excursions to Bourg-Saint-Maurice and the other winter sports resorts in the Tarentaise Valley region. SNCF run both TER trains and buses on this regional route which climbs slowly up into the mountains east of Chambéry. Most services are direct, but you will find the occasional itinerary which requires a change of train or bus in Albertville or Moûtiers.

    Bookings for this route normally open three months in advance, though for summer season bookings Loco2 is sometimes able to sell tickets four months or even longer in advance. However, the fare on TER trains from Chambéry to stations in the Tarentaise Valley is fixed, so it matters little whether you book a week or a month in advance.

    Chambéry to Bourg-Saint-Maurice

    SNCF run about seven direct regional trains (called TER services) each day from Chambéry Challes-les-Eaux to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Additionally there are up to six SNCF bus services which follow exactly the same route up the Isère Valley to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Our system clearly shows which services are buses and which are trains.

    The fares and journey time are much the same, whether you opt for a train or a bus. Expect the run from Chambéry to Bourg-Saint-Maurice to be two hours. Leaving Chambéry, the route skirts the Massif de Bauges. The last hour of the journey becomes ever more dramatic, with fine views of the Vanoise range away to the south. Sit on the right of the train or bus for the best views.
