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 at least five times each day from Paris to the French Riviera. But only one of these trains, an early afternoon departure from Paris, serves Monaco Monte Carlo. All other connections require a change of train at Nice Ville station from where there’s a regular local service along the coast to Monaco.

    The route followed by the TGVs cuts south-east from Paris, skirting Burgundy and crossing the River Rhône east of Lyon. Just before Marseille, the TGVs to the Riviera leave the high-speed line and follow a traditional rail route east along the Mediterranean coast to Nice.

    Bookings for this route usually open three months in advance. However, for the summer holiday season Loco2 is often able to sell tickets up to five months in advance. Book early for the cheapest tickets.

    Apart from the high-speed daytime services, there is also an overnight train from Paris to Nice. It’s called the Train Bleu, and you can take that to Nice for the onward hop to Monaco.


    Paris to Monaco-Monte-Carlo

    The daily direct high-speed TGV from Paris to Monaco Monte Carlo departs from the Gare de Lyon in the afternoon. The train is usually a TGV Duplex, so book a seat on the upper deck for the best views.

    The train dashes south from Paris to reach its first stop at Aix-en-Provence in just under three hours. Thereafter the pace is more leisurely and the scenery becomes ever more captivating as the train tracks east towards Nice and beyond. Between Aix and Monaco, the train makes five more stops. Newcomers to Monaco are often surprised to find that the train arrives at a subterranean station. It’s not quite the sunshine welcome that many travellers expect.

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.
