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 Milan to Paris. There is an overnight option, using the Thello night train from Milan to Paris. Yet many travellers prefer doing the journey entirely by day, using the direct TGV service which links the two cities three times each day.

    The route used by the daytime TGV services runs west from Lombardy, crossing Piedmont to reach the Alps. Entering France through the Fréjus rail tunnel, the train follows a scenic route east towards Burgundy. The journey ends with an impressive high-speed dash to Paris.

    Bookings for this journey normally open four months in advance. It is a key business route and booking at the last minute likely means higher fares. So book well in advance for the cheapest tickets.


    Milan to Paris

    The daytime high-speed trains to Paris leave from Milan Porta Garibaldi and arrive at Paris Lyon station. All trains from Milan to Paris stop at Turin, Oulx and Bardonecchia before diving under the Alps to reach France. Once in France, the route runs via Modane and Chambéry to reach the Burgundy region.

    With an overall journey time of about 7 hrs 20 mins, and just six stops along the way, this is a comfortable and interesting journey. It is by no means high speed for the entire route, so sit back and watch the Alps and landscapes of rural France slip by beyond the carriage window.

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.
