Yes this does seem random and apologies for not being more precise, but there doesn't seem to a firm rule for when tickets will be released for this journey.
When looking for tickets on Oui.SNCF tick the 'direct trains' box, on Trainline tick the 'fastest journeys' box.
On Oui.SNCF select 'Bâle (Basel)' as the depart station.
Trains departing at different times can be cheaper than others leaving on the same day, so you may need to look through the day's departures to find the cheapest fares.
There can be particularly big discrepancies per train on this route.
If tickets aren't on sale yet for your travel date, then this is a journey for which it's worth signing up to the ticket availability notification service on Oui.SNCF.
Do that and you'll receive an email within moments of the tickets being released for sale.
It's worth making an effort as this is a journey on which the very cheapest tickets tend to sell out particularly fast.
Travelling with a rail pass
This is one of the relatively rare routes on which the mandatory reservation fees are comparatively very expensive compared to the distance travelled.
It's also a route on which avoiding paying any additional rail pass fees at all is impractical, but it's possible to save more than €10 by taking a TER train from Basel to Mulhouse and connecting there for a TGV train on to Dijon.
|Ticket Provider||Approximate Cost|
|Happy rail||from €34 (in £s)|
|SNCF Connect||from €34|
These trains travel on a high speed line between Mulhouse and Dijon.
