Tips and tricks to book cheap train tickets France

  • Book as early as possible, tickets are available three months in advance (tickets for the summer can be booked from February) Train tickets can be three times as cheap if they are booked in advance

  • If possible, avoid trains during rush hour and TGV's used by Parisians for "weekend breaks" to travel to the country side

  • If tickets are sold out or very expensive, you could try to buy tickets to a destination nearby and from there to your final destination

  • Sometimes regionals trains are much cheaper than TGV-trains, but often the travel time is much longer

  • Travel on very early trains or late in the evening is often the cheapest option, except for some busy routes, like Paris to London
