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 fastest high-speed TGV trains travel non-stop from Paris to Marseille in just 3 hrs 6 mins. Most trains make two stops along the way, extending the journey time by about 15 minutes. This is France’s premier high-speed rail route. A journey which used to take the best part of a day can now be completed in a morning.

    The route cuts south-east from Paris through the chalklands of the Île de France, skirting Burgundy and crossing the River Rhône east of Lyon. Almost before you know it, your train is in Provence. The last half hour of the journey has great views of the landscapes celebrated in the paintings of Cézanne.

    Bookings for this route usually open three months in advance. However, during summer the booking horizon is usually extended so it's possible to book earlier. The cheapest tickets are available when bookings first open.

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.
