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, based on how far in advance you book.

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.

30 day advance and 7 day advance prices are found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from today. These prices fluctuate daily based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price on a busy Saturday in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey on a Tuesday in winter.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. Cheapest price £17.50
  2. 30 day advance £30.50
  3. 7 day advance £52.50

  1. It is easy to travel by train from Paris to Bordeaux, with departures at least hourly on this key route across western France. The route is served by SNCF’s sleek TGVs, but only the first part of the journey is on a modern high-speed railway line. That will change in mid-2017 when a new fast line opens from Tours to Bordeaux. Until then, enjoy the ride which takes in some very rural landscapes as well as passing through fine regional cities like Poitiers and Angoulême.

    Bookings for the journey from Paris to Bordeaux normally open three months prior to the date of travel. However, at certain times of the year, Loco2 may be able to sell tickets for this journey as long as four months in advance. It pays to book early if you are keen to get the best fares.

    Depending on the day of the week, between 16 and 21 high-speed TGVs leave Paris each day for Bordeaux. The departure station in Paris is Montparnasse, and these services all run to Saint-Jean station in the heart of Bordeaux. The journey starts with an impressive high-speed dash, with most trains covering the first 218 km (to the bridge over the River Loire upstream from Tours) in less than an hour. Thereafter the pace slows, as the train follows traditional railway lines south through the Poitou-Charentes region towards Bordeaux.

    The fastest trains from Paris to Bordeaux run non-stop and take just 3 hrs 15 mins for the 570-kilometre journey. Slower services, making up to six stops along the way, may take up to four hours.
