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.

Running east from Lyon, the countryside becomes increasingly hilly.

    Beyond Chambéry the train joins the Isère Valley, which it follows up into the Alps. The train stops twice (at Moûtiers and Aime-la-Plagne) before arriving at Bourg-Saint-Maurice. From there it is an easy transfer to Les Arcs and the other famous ski resorts of the Tarentaise region.

    The journey from London starts with a high-speed run to Paris with Eurostar. In the French capital, you transfer from the Gare du Nord to the Gare du Lyon where you join a sleek TGV train for the journey to the French Alps. On many days, the onward journey from Paris to your final destination of Bourg-Saint-Maurice requires a change of train at Chambéry - and this is the route we describe below.

    There are other options for travelling from London to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, with direct daytime and overnight ski trains from London on winter weekends. On those rare days when there’s an overnight TGV train from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice, it is possible to leave London by Eurostar late afternoon and connect into that overnight service from Paris to the Tarentaise Valley.

    London to Paris

    The first part of the journey from London sweeps through Thameside landscapes and rural Kent to reach the Channel Tunnel. Little more than an hour after leaving London you'll already be in northern France, tracking south through Flanders fields towards Paris.

    Remember to factor in at least half an hour for Eurostar's airline-style baggage check prior to boarding your train. There is a luggage and body scan and you'll be asked to show your passport. There are no restrictions on taking liquids on board Eurostar trains.

    Paris interchange: Paris Nord to Paris Lyon

    When you alight from the train at Gare du Nord look for signs to the Metro and RER. Once you've bought a ticket follow the signs to 'RER D', direction 'Melun' or 'Malesherbes'. So long as you're heading in the right direction, all the trains on this line stop at Gare de Lyon. The actual train journey takes around 10 mins with just one stop on the way at Châtelet-les-Halles. Upon alighting from the RER train at Gare de Lyon, follow the signs to the mainline station. The signs read 'Accès aux trains Grandes Lignes'. The whole journey from the concourse at Gare du Nord to the mainline departure platforms at Gare de Lyon will normally take about 40 mins but we recommend leaving at least 50 mins.

    If you are arriving at Gare du Nord from London, bear in mind that you can buy Paris Métro tickets at the Eurostar terminal at St. Pancras and on board the Eurostar train. Similarly, passengers arriving at the Gare du Nord on Thalys trains from Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands can buy Metro tickets on the train (at the Thalys Bar). Although universally referred to as Métro tickets, they are in fact valid on RER trains too.
