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. It is easy to travel by train from Lille to Bordeaux. Several direct trains each day serve this route and, if you do not mind a change of trains along the way, there are additional options via Paris (where a change of stations is required from the Gare du Nord to Montparnasse). The direct trains from Lille to Bordeaux slip round the east side of Paris and then traverse the city’s southern suburbs to reach the main line from Paris to Bordeaux.

    The journey starts with an impressive high-speed dash south through Picardie and around the edge of Paris. Beyond the Loire the pace slows, as the train follows traditional railway lines south through the Poitou-Charentes region towards Bordeaux.

    Bookings for the journey from Lille to Bordeaux normally open three months prior to the date of travel. However, at certain times of the year, Loco2 may be able to sell tickets for this route as long as four months in advance. It pays to book early if you are keen to get the best fares.
