I'm planning a return trip from Latour-de-Carol to Toulouse next week. Prices for next week on SNCF Connect are higher (~25 euros per single trip) than further in the future (starting at just 10 euros).

I know that with TER trains it is also possible to purchase a ticket at the station at the day of travelling, but what will the price be there? Will it be the highest possible online fare, or is it a lower, standard fare? The possibility to purchase tickets at stations is widely mentioned online, but have not been able to find information on the pricing.

The possibility to purchase tickets at stations is widely mentioned online, but have not been able to find information on the pricing.

Pricing will be the exact same at a station and through SNCF Connect, since for TER prices are set by regions and not by dynamic pricing like TGV would.

Prices for next week on SNCF Connect are higher (~25 euros per single trip) than further in the future (starting at just 10 euros).

On the same exact train? Because there are some saver fares that are sometimes implemented.

If you book >= 10 days in advance, some tickets may pop up at €1

For some trains in the region (listed on the TER site), another type of fixed pricing is implemented

  • 3€ <= 40 km
  • 5€ >= 41 < 80 km
  • 10€ >= 81 < 200 km
  • 15€ >= 200 km

If you travel on the first weekend of the month all tickets cost €1

    Hi Nicolas, thanks for you reply. And for the info that the pricing is the same at the stations. I see now that indeed, the exact same trains have the same (high-ish) prices at a given weekday and time. My mistake. It appears the train I need to take always costs €28,10, even if other trains the same day cost only 10 (or indeed 1 on specific weekends or timeslots). A surprising difference.

    @Quan 28.10 is the normal fare, and 10/1 are promotional fares Jan 4 at 14:37
