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. Getting by train from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice is easy. In the ski season and on some peak summer days there are direct daytime TGVs from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice and other towns in the Tarentaise Valley. But don’t worry if your preferred travel date is not one with a direct daytime train. You’ll still have a choice of four to six other daytime options, using a high-speed TGV from Paris to Chambéry where you connect onto a comfortable regional train service (or a bus operated by SNCF) for the final part of the journey to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. This is the journey we describe here.

    Bookings for journeys from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice normally open three months in advance. However, for mid-summer travel we are often able to sell tickets for this route four months or even longer in advance.

    There are alternative routings to Bourg-Saint-Maurice via Lyon or Aix-les-Bains – both with the same scenic appeal as the more popular option via Chambéry. If you do not mind an overnight journey, you’ll also find that there’s a direct TGV train (just seats, no couchettes or sleepers) from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in the ski season and at certain other holiday times.
