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. High-speed TGV trains run directly from Paris to Avignon in well under three hours. Almost all trains on this route are TGV Duplex services so you can choose between upper deck and lower deck seating. Opt for the top level for the best views.

    There are about a dozen direct trains each day from Paris to Avignon TGV station. The journey is entirely on modern high-speed lines, skirting Burgundy vineyards, and crossing the River Rhône east of Lyon. Almost before you know it you’ll be in sunny Provence.

    There are also four TGV services each day from Paris to Avignon Centre station, just a short walk from the main sights in the old city. These trains take about an hour longer than the services to Avignon TGV. From Valence to Avignon these trains follow the Rhône Valley instead of the modern high-speed line, so affording fine views of the landscapes of the region.

    For the cheapest tickets 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.

    Paris to Avignon

    Trains from Paris to Avignon leave from the Gare de Lyon in the French capital. All but a handful of the TGV and double-deck TGV Duplex trains on this route run to Avignon TGV station, which is well out of the city centre. Most of these high-speed trains run non-stop between the two cities.

    A small number of trains run to Avignon Centre instead of Avignon TGV. This is much more convenient for the heart of medieval Avignon. Local train services connect Avignon TGV with Avignon Centre station.

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.
