About Trains to Verbier

Train prices to Verbier

How much it costs depends a lot on when you travel. Peak weeks like Christmas, New Year, February half-term and Easter are obviously more expensive.

Our top tip is to try to book as early as possible.

Eurostar ski train tickets usually go out for sale in mid-July and that's when they're at their cheapest.

SBB (Swiss Federal Railway) train tickets from Geneva and other Swiss cities are normally available to buy 120 to 90 days before your travel time and, again, the earlier you book the lower the price will be.
