Paris to Bruges . . . best way? ?!?

Jump to last reply

hoping someone call help me figure out the best (i.e. cheapest) way to get from Paris to Bruges next month (Saturday October 12th). i have been reading a couple threads on here, but they seem to be older and the LOW fares might be outdated.

i have done my research and come up with the following RT fares for 2 adults for my date:

sncf.com ($200)
thalys.com ($220)
raileurope.uk ($200)

am i missing anything? is this as cheap as it gets? i was also reading some business about buying off european website vs. american might be cheaper . . or to call thalys directly. does this truly make a difference? i am planning to order the tickets now (i am reading that advance purchase will be the cheapest) and have tickets mailed to me in the U.S. (or print from computer, if available). i also looked at the euroline bus, which was significantly cheaper ($100) but this only goes into Brussels, and the national railroad B-Rail will cost another ($52) to get us into Bruges. . .at that point, getting us there much later in the day, which is not an option. any other suggestions or ideas? thanks in advance!!
