Geneva-London June 2010


Recommended Posts

We have looked at the various flight options Geneva-London, Zuerich-London, even Basel-London and none of the usual operators have reasonably priced flights - all far more than usual. As it will be out little granddaughter's first birthday we should like to go for a few days. Any suggestions please? Driving would be too expensive in fuel/time. TIA

We took the train last time and it was really great fun, and in many ways quicker and cheaper than flying. TGV to Paris Gare de Lyon, RER D2 to Gare du Nord (or taxi) and Eurostar. The key is to book early - and if you are flexible with dates (eg week-days) tell the ticket guy. We got the price reduced from E950 for 2 return, to E228 for 2 return - by booking early and going on a Tuesday coming back on a Thursday (from Pontarlier). Brilliant.

The key is to book 90 days in advance to get best price. Personally, both in UK and in France - I find the best way to get a good price is to actually go in person to your local station- outside peak hours- and ask the guy in the ticket office to search for the very best price- explaining that we can have some flexibility on day/dates. Our local guy here took about 20 mins looking at all the possible options. Got E950 return for 2- then down to 350 and finally to 228. It saved us getting to Geneva transport or parking and time- and again we arrived in central London St Pancras (ok just north of) - and saved us lots of time and money at that end too. Defo do it again.
