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.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. The direct overnight train from Venice to Paris is a cheap and easy way to travel between the two cities. This is a perfectly timed overnight journey. The train leaves Venice early enough that you have time to relax on board before turning in for the night. The overnight route skirts the edge of Lake Maggiore, passing through the Simplon Tunnel to reach Switzerland. Arrival in Paris is about half past nine in the morning.

    The overnight train to Paris from Venice is run by Thello. Bookings for this service normally open four months in advance of travel, and that’s when you’ll find the cheapest tickets.

    If you prefer to travel from Venice to Paris by day, you can take a Frecciabianca service from Venice to Turin, connecting there onto a French TGV train for the high-speed run to Paris.

    The Thello overnight train starts at Venice Santa Lucia station. It then runs over the causeway bridge and stops at Venezia Mestre. The train makes four further stops at stations in Italy to pick up passengers bound for France. In the early hours, the train runs along the shore of Lake Geneva with – on a clear night – fine views of the Alps. The first scheduled stop in France is at Dijon, where the train sets down passengers before continuing to Paris.
