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. It is an easy journey by train from Paris to Utrecht. You’ll need to make just one change of train along the way. The journey starts with a high-speed run on a Thalys train from Paris to the Netherlands. You then change at Rotterdam Centraal, Schiphol Airport or Amsterdam Centraal onto a Dutch domestic Intercity service for the short onward hop to Utrecht.

    In terms of fares and overall travel time, it makes little difference where you change. The journey we describe here is via Schiphol Airport. Whichever route you choose, bookings for this journey normally open three months prior to travel.

    Paris to Amsterdam

    Paris to Amsterdam

    The sleek red Thalys trains used on the Paris to Schiphol and Amsterdam route are very much like regular French TGVs, but with Thalys’ own distinctive corporate decor. The departure point in Paris is the Gare du Nord. These very comfortable trains take just three hours for the run to Schiphol Airport, making just three intermediate stops along the way at Brussels, Antwerp and Rotterdam. The route crosses Picardy and Flanders, so lots of pancake-flat terrain with glimpses of pretty towns and villages along the way.

    Amsterdam Schiphol may be mainly associated with planes, but it’s an important hub on the Dutch domestic rail network, so upon arrival in Schiphol you’ll find a useful range of onward connections to cities across the Netherlands. Experienced travellers often favour it as an easier place to change trains than Amsterdam Centraal.

    From early morning until late evening, there are four Intercity trains each hour from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Utrecht. After midnight direct trains to Utrecht run hourly. The route cuts through the southern suburbs of Amsterdam, with trains making two intermediate stops on the 30-minute journey to Utrecht. You’ll arrive at the Centraal station in Utrecht, from where it is a short walk east to the heart of the Old Town.
