Help needed on Paris/Amsterdam/Brussels train tickets.

Jump to last reply

Hello all, yep time for me to ask for help instead of giving it.

Here is the deal, DW and I are spending the month of February 2012 in Rome and Paris (2 weeks Rome, 2 weeks Paris). In reality, what we are doing is using apartments in Rome and Paris as our bases and then going out on day trips from each primary location.

Anyway, trying to do a 2 day trip leaving Paris early morning, train to Amsterdam and get into Amsterdam in the morning. We then wanted to go from Amsterdam to Brussels either late evening on the outbound Paris day or early the next morning. Finally, late evening on the second day return from Brussels to Paris. We could also do this in the reverse order, or even spend a couple of nights away from Paris, no real schedule.

So here is the problem...the tickets to/from Paris to/from either Brussels or Amsterdam are pretty cheap (58 euros for 2), but the tickets between Amsterdam and Brussels are like 90 euros. Is there something I'm missing here? I'm on both the TGV and Thalys sites and can't seem to find the stops the Amsterdam/Paris train makes. My thought being that if on the way it went from say Amsterdam to Paris with a stop in Brussels, we'd just get off in Brussels and save 40 Euros.

I tried doing the "via" option, but that did nothing but give me a RT Paris-Amsterdam. So what am I doing wrong? Appreciate any help.
