Paris to Bordeaux by train

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.

The route is served by SNCF’s sleek TGVs, but until recently only the first part of the journey was on a modern high-speed railway line. That changed in July 2017 when a new fast line opened from Tours to Bordeaux. So now you can dash from Paris to Bordeaux in just over two hours. The ride takes in some very rural landscapes as well as skirting fine regional cities like Poitiers and Angoulême.

Paris to Bordeaux

Every day of the week, about a score of high-speed TGVs leave Paris for Bordeaux. The departure station in Paris is Montparnasse, and these services all run to Saint-Jean station in the heart of Bordeaux. This is an impressive high-speed dash, with most trains covering the first 218 km (to the bridge over the River Loire upstream from Tours) in less than an hour. Thereafter the non-stop trains stick to a new high-speed line (just opened in July 2017) south through the Poitou-Charentes region towards Bordeaux.

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.
