Top 7 tips to find a cheap train ticket

Finding the cheapest price to buy your train tickets can often be like a fighter's journey, with all the companies present and prices that can skyrocket at the last minute. Indeed, ticket prices vary according to the season, the day of the week, the timetable, but also and above all according to train load. It's the game of supply and demand. But then which train company is really the cheapest? In reality, there is no company that is cheaper, because prices change all the time. That's why you have to go through Kombo to find the best prices.

1) Take train tickets on Kombo

Buying train tickets with Kombo is a guarantee to find the cheapest train ticket. Why? First of all, we work with different train companies throughout Europe to offer the best routes at the cheapest price. Next, our search engine contains an algorithm that allows you to combine several tickets over long distances. This allows you to pay on average 30% less while saving time during your correspondence. Simply enter your departure and arrival city in the search bar, giving the dates and number of passengers. Results include train, bus or carpooling.

2) Buying train tickets in advance

The best advice we can give you to find cheap train tickets is to buy them in advance. Of course, it's not always obvious but remember to look for your train tickets when you know you'll have to travel. In general, train companies, such as SNCF, Trenitalia, Eurostar or Ouigo, sell train tickets 3 months before the departure date. So this is the best time to buy train tickets. If you find out a short time in advance that you have to travel by train, be aware that train companies often make promotional offers (they tell you how to take advantage of these promotions to buy your cheap train ticket). You can find these promotional rates on Kombo! So check the offers regularly to find the cheapest train tickets.

3) Think low cost with Ouigo

Ouigo is the TGV low cost of the SNCF, and prices can be very advantageous. Kombo makes it possible to combine the Ouigo with other trains or TER for even cheaper prices on more destinations.

4) Be flexible in your search for train tickets

Another possibility to find your train tickets at the best price is to be flexible in dates or timetables, as with air tickets. So play with the day and schedule filters to get the best view of train ticket prices.

5) Take a season ticket to pay for cheaper train tickets

If you travel regularly by train, most train companies offer season tickets:

  • For young people: carte jeune, TGV Max
  • For seniors
  • For Professionals

All SNCF subscriptions

All Trenitalia subscriptions

6) Finding train tickets on special offer

By subscribing to the Newsletters of the train companies or Kombo, you are guaranteed to always be informed about possible promotions. Also, remember to consult Kombo every time you are looking for a train ticket and we will show you the best prices for all types of travel. In addition with Kombo, you can always compare the train with the bus or the carpooling, something you won't find elsewhere.

7) Take advantage of special train fares

Depending on your age or personal situation, you can find interesting prices to buy the cheapest train ticket possible. Be sure to consult the different types of fares offered by the train companies to find the best fare.
