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.

Mont-Blanc Express

The Mont-Blanc Express train from Chamonix to Martigny runs all year round and is the perfect way of travelling from France’s Haute-Savoie region to canton Valais in Switzerland. This is a narrow-gauge mountain railway which runs through very difficult terrain over the frontier, skirting the northern edge of the Mont Blanc massif along the way. Choose a fine day and you’ll be rewarded with some great mountain views. The journey is equally impressive in fierce winter weather.

Chamonix to Martigny

The name Mont-Blanc Express is a little misleading, for the wonderful ride from Chamonix to Martigny is hardly an express route. Sit on the right for the best views of the Alps as the train climbs up steeply towards the Swiss border. You’ll see several glaciers, including the Mer de Glace and the Glacier d’Argentière.

It is normally necessary to change trains at Vallorcine just before the French-Swiss border, but this is very easy. The trains connect perfectly and you merely need to cross the platform to the waiting train for the onward journey.
