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. Taking the train from Paris to Strasbourg is the obvious choice, thanks to frequent and fast services from the capital. Fast TGV or ICE trains run a dozen or more times each day from Paris to Strasbourg, most taking under two hours for the 450 km journey.

    The main route is via the TGV Est line, an extension to the French high-speed rail network that opened in 2007. The extension was built in two phases, with the final section of this high-speed line completed in 2016. The fastest trains run non-stop while others make just a couple of stops, adding 15 minutes to the journey time.

    If speed is not your priority, with careful planning it is still possible to make your way east from Paris on slower regional services, stopping off along the way.

    Tickets for this route typically go on sale three months in advance, with some seasonal variation. The route is busy year-round since it's popular with business travellers, so if you can fix your plans in advance, you'll be rewarded with some excellent value tickets.

    A dozen fast trains each day speed non-stop from Paris Est to Strasbourg, using a new high-speed line that opened in 2007. The journey time was trimmed by half an hour in July 2016, when the high-speed line was extended east through the Vosges Mountains to the Rhine Valley. The new stretch is 106 km long and completes the TGV-Est high-speed extension to Strasbourg. Trains regularly reach 320 kph on this route, and the journey from Paris to Strasbourg now takes about 1 hrs 50 mins. Most trains on this route are French TGVs, with a small number of ICEs (bound for Germany) also serving the route.

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.
