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 an easy journey by TER train from Geneva to Moûtiers-Salins-Brides-les-Bains and other stations in the Tarentaise Valley. This useful cross-border link always requires a change of train at Chambéry. It is a great rail journey, one which progressively engages with the mountains as you move south from the shores of Lake Geneva into the French Alps.

    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 Geneva to stations in the Tarentaise Valley is fixed, so it matters little whether you book a week or a month in advance.

    Direct TER trains from Geneva to Chambéry depart from the Gare de Cornavin station in the centre of the Swiss city. There are five or six direct trains each day from Geneva to Chambéry. Many trains on the route continue beyond Chambéry to Grenoble and Valence, thus giving an important inter-regional link from western Switzerland to the Rhône Valley via Savoie.

    Trains on the route from Geneva to Chambéry make from two to four intermediate stops, and the journey time varies between 75 and 95 minutes. There is an utterly beautiful stretch on the approach to Aix-les-Bains as the line skirts the eastern shore of Lake Bourget with fine views across to Mont de la Charvaz on the far side of the lake.

    Chambéry to Moûtiers

    Chambéry to Moûtiers

    SNCF run about seven direct regional trains (called TER services) each day from Chambéry Challes-les-Eaux to Moûtiers-Salins-Brides-les-Bains. This schedule is supplemented by up to six SNCF bus services which follow exactly the same route up the Isère Valley to Moûtiers. 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. Reckon on about 90 minutes for the run from Chambéry to Moûtiers. Leaving Chambéry, the route skirts the Massif de Bauges. The last part of the journey is the most dramatic as the train or bus climbs up steadily towards the Vanoise Mountains.
