Depending on the type of train taken, there are various tips for benefiting from low fares.
For most high-speed trains (notably Thalys, Eurostar, TGV®, TGV Lyria and ICE), the cheapest fares are available in limited quantities. So to benefit from the best prices, we suggest you avoid peak times and book as far ahead as possible.
To help you find the lowest prices on the main Thalys and Eurostar services, we can offer you a clever fare calendar: at a glance, you can see all trains with seats at the lowest prices over a period of several months.
In some circumstances, it can be more cost-effective to travel as a group, as some rail companies offer fares which are exclusively available to small groups of 3-5 passengers. Examples include the Thalys "Mini Group" fare or the "Pack Tribu" fare from TGV®.
Finally, many railway operators regularly run temporary offers on fares, offering passengers good deals on rail travel. To ensure you don't miss out on these offers, we recommend you visit our website or Facebook page regularly, or sign up for our newsletter.
