Final Destination: Rouen or Amiens

On Mondays to Fridays trains now depart Lille hourly from 05:53 to 13:53 and from 15:53 to 19:53.
The final departure of the day is then at 20:58.

On Saturdays and Sundays there are departures in every other hour (the odd hours) from 09:05 to 21:05 with an additional Saturdays only departure at 07:05.

Relatively new trains are used on this route.

Monday - Friday = 15 x trains per day

Book early and save: No

Tickets can be booked online up to three months ahead, but they will cost the same if paid for at the station on the day of travel.

And if you book online, you may not be able to claim a refund if you subsequently change your travel plans.

If you're new to booking tickets for train journeys in France, we recommend taking a look at our guide to French train tickets - it should help you save time and money and confusion.

SNCF Connect Guide

SNCF is the national rail operator in France and not so long ago it recently simplified both the range of tickets and the term and conditions of using them.
Therefore the cheapest tickets also become more flexible too.

Other improvements included a simple integration of travelling with bicycles and rail pass users being able to book reservations for national journeys, without paying booking fees.

And it also recently launched SNCF Connect as replacement for its Oui.SNCF booking service.
You can set up a low price alert to let you know when the cheapest price is available for a future journey.

Something else to look out for is that simplest way of travelling with tickets is to use the SNCF Connect App, as booked tickets can therefore be stored on your mobile device, which can then be shown to the train conductors as proof of purchase.

SNCF also operates RailEurope, which is in effect a dedicated online booking service for making bookings from outside of Europe.
If you reside outside of Europe you may discover that SNCF Connect rejects phone numbers or card numbers, but RailEurope won't do so.
Though RailEurope will add booking fees when making a purchase

On this journey

Good to Know

This is a journey that is worth looking up on Oui.SNCF -  even if you would rather buy tickets at the station, as there can be gaps of more than two hours between departures.

At weekends the final train of the day departs from Lille at around 18:02.
