Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe 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.

TGV & TER

Getting by train from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice is easy. In the ski season and on some peak summer days there are direct daytime TGVs from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice and other towns in the Tarentaise Valley. But don’t worry if your preferred travel date is not one with a direct daytime train. You’ll still have a choice of other daytime options, using a high-speed TGV from Paris to Chambéry where you connect onto a comfortable regional train service (or a bus operated by SNCF) for the final part of the journey to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. This is the journey we describe here.

There are alternative routings to Bourg-Saint-Maurice via Lyon or Aix-les-Bains – both with the same scenic appeal as the more popular option via Chambéry. If you do not mind an overnight journey, you’ll also find that there’s a direct TGV train (just seats, no couchettes or sleepers) from Paris to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in the ski season and at certain other holiday times.

Paris to Chambéry - Challes-les-Eaux

The high-speed TGV trains from Paris to Chambéry leave from the Gare de Lyon in the French capital. Most trains make just one stop on the run from Paris to Chambéry. Some services are operated by double-deck TGV Duplex trains.

The journey from Paris to Chambéry in the French Alps takes in some very fine scenery. The train dashes south from Paris and before long you are skirting Burgundy vineyards. The last hour of the journey is through increasingly mountainous landscapes as the train cuts through the foothills of the Alps. In Chambéry, you’ll arrive at the modern Challes-les-Eaux station.

Chambéry - Challes-les-Eaux to Bourg-Saint-Maurice

SNCF run direct regional trains (called TER services) each day from Chambéry Challes-les-Eaux to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Additionally there are up to six SNCF bus services which follow exactly the same route up the Isère Valley to Bourg-Saint-Maurice. Our system clearly shows which services are buses and which are trains.

The fares and journey time are much the same, whether you opt for a train or a bus. Expect the run from Chambéry to Bourg-Saint-Maurice to be two hours. Leaving Chambéry, the route skirts the Massif de Bauges. The last hour of the journey becomes ever more dramatic, with fine views of the Vanoise range away to the south. Sit on the right of the train or bus for the best views.
