Prices explained

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 an easy journey by train from Lyon to Bourg-Saint-Maurice (for the Les Arcs winter sports resort) and other stations in the Tarentaise Valley. The route is served by regular TER regional trains, with a couple of daily year-round direct services and up to six additional trains per day during the winter sports season, especially at weekends. The 311-km journey from Lyon to Bourg-Saint-Maurice wins no prizes for speed but this route gets top marks for scenery.

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

    For extra choice, it’s also possible to take a TER or TGV from Lyon to Chambéry, changing there onto a connecting train or SNCF bus to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Changing thus at Challes-les-Eaux station in Chambéry opens up several additional options per day.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
