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 easy to travel from Paris to Antwerp by train. Every day between seven and nine high-speed Thalys trains leave the French capital for Antwerp. The exact number of departures varies according to the day of the week. As both France and Belgium are party to the Schengen Agreement, you speed across the border between the two countries without passport or customs formalities.

    Tickets for your journey from Paris to Antwerp normally go on sale four months prior to travel. This route carries a lot of business traffic, so it pays to book well in advance if you are keen to get a bargain fare. But even closer to your travel date, it’s often still possible to get a reasonably priced ticket if you are prepared to travel on one of the more lightly loaded off-peak services. Look out for some great bargain fares in Thalys' smart "comfort" carriages (that the middle of Thalys' three classes) on off-peak and weekend journeys on this route.


    Paris to Antwerp

    The direct high-speed Thalys trains to Antwerp leave from Paris Gare du Nord. The route tracks north through Picardie into French Flanders. Just before Lille, the train swings off towards the east, crossing the Belgian border and continuing to its one and only intermediate stop at Brussels Midi. From there, it’s just another 35 minutes on to Antwerp. The entire journey takes about two hours. You’ll arrive at the underground platforms at Antwerp Central, which give little inkling of the glorious station which lies just above. Take time to look around before leaving.

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.
