Thalys Train fare: from Paris to Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am trying to figure out the best time to book a train ticket for a trip from Paris to Amsterdam in August of 2012. I was able to buy a ticket from Brussels to Paris for 26 euro. However, now when I look at Thalys website, the cheapest fare is 59 euro. I am not sure if it is because it is in the summer, August, or because there is a sweet spot to book the ticket, sometime after it goes on sale.

I am also open to stopping in Brussels on the way to Amsterdam, especially if it makes the fare cheaper. Any advice?
