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. The journey by train from Paris to Zurich is very easy. Direct TGV Lyria trains link the two cities several times each day. Sit back and relax while you speed in comfort through eastern France to the Swiss border and beyond. This is a busy route which has lured a lot of traffic away from the airlines and onto the train. That does mean that services are often quite full and it’s worth booking early for the best deals.

    Tickets for this route normally go on sale four months in advance of travel.

    The opening of new high-speed rail routes in eastern France has halved the travel time from Paris to Zurich. Six trains each day (five at weekends) now make the 616-kilometre journey in just over four hours. The direct TGV Lyria trains to Zurich all depart from the Gare de Lyon in the French capital. In Zurich they terminate at the Hauptbahnhof (which is shown as Zurich HB here on Loco2).

    The route runs via Burgundy and the Franche-Comté region, using the new Dijon to Belfort line which opened in late 2011. Trains on the Paris to Zurich route all make two intermediate stops in France before crossing the Swiss border at Basel (Bâle in French) where all trains stop. From Basel, they run non-stop to Zurich.
