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. It is very easy to travel by train from London to Aix-en-Provence. The journey normally has two parts: a ride on Eurostar from London to France, and then an onward connection on a high-speed TGV train within France.

    The key question is where to make that change from Eurostar to TGV. On those days when there is a direct Eurostar from London to Avignon, it makes sense to change there – but that does mean an early morning start from London. An alternative is to travel via Lille with a choice of four trains each day on that route. Finally, if you do not mind changing stations in Paris, you have an excellent choice of services via the French capital.

    Of these various routes, the most consistently popular with Loco2 customers is that via Lille, which we describe here. It starts with a short ride on Eurostar from London to Lille, where you change onto a TGV for the fast run south to Aix-en-Provence.

    For the cheapest fares, book when tickets are first released for sale. That’s normally three months prior to travel, but for journeys in the peak summer season bookings may open four months or even longer in advance.

    You'll find that there are also many other trains to Aix-en-Provence.

    London to Lille

    London to Lille

    Board a Eurostar service from London to Lille. There are about ten trains from London to Lille each day, departing every hour or two from the beautifully restored station at St Pancras. At Lille, Eurostar stops at the modern Lille Europe station, which has an excellent range of onward high-speed trains to cities across France.

    The fastest Eurostar trains from London speed to Lille in just 1 hr 22 mins. Slower trains (which may make up to three stops along the way) take up to 20 minutes longer to reach Lille Europe.

    Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar’s airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. This is a light-touch security scan, and there are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.

    Lille to Aix-en-Provence

    Lille to Aix-en-Provence

    Six high-speed TGV trains each day run directly from Lille Europe to Aix-en-Provence TGV station. The latter is not the city centre station in Aix, but a dedicated new station for high-speed trains south-west of the city. There is a regular bus link from the station into town.

    Trains from Lille to Aix-en-Provence make four or five intermediate stops. The route tracks south from Flanders through Picardie, before skirting the eastern suburbs of Paris. Then it’s south through Burgundy to the Rhône Valley where all trains stop in Lyon and then at either Valence or Avignon before arriving in Aix.
