ONline site to buy rail ticket between Bruges and Paris


After reviewing train options between Bruges to Paris, I've decided to travel from Bruges to Paris Via Lille. The trains that have the best connection times (so that we are least likely to miss connecting trains) either go from: Bruges Gent Lille Paris
or from:
Bruges Kortrijk Lille Paris
Is there anyway to buy one of these itineraries online as one ticket? What is the site I can do this on? I've tried the belgian and french rail sites and and only able to include one designated connection. Am I missing something? I plan to travel in June, so I can't purchase the ticket now, but want to know what how to do it. I prefer to purchase b4 we leave so that our time won't be taken up buying tickets/ waiting in line. Thanks!

www.raileurope.com seems to sell tickets direct from Bruges to Paris. The trip is 2 1/2 hours. Did you check there? You can easily purchase tickets on their website.

You don't need to make it "one ticket".

I've bought tickets on this route from the SNCF site, and wasn't given the choices I KNEW were available for some reason. When I broke the trip down to segments, I was given the trains I knew were available (from the German rail site). It doesn't increase the cost.

From what I understand, Raileurope inflates the price of the tickets. Good to know that I can break down the legs of the trip without increasing the price!

Search also on "telesales b-rail.be" or something like that. It was recorded here sometime in the past that they sell deeply discounted tickets for Thalys travel between Brussels and Paris.

Best wishes,

RailEurope did not inflate the price of my Thalys tickets...don't know about regional rail tickets, though...
