What was the price of the tickets for all classes in American money? And what would they be at todays rate?

In 1912 1st class rate was around $3000, a little up or down(that would be $60,000 in todays market). And a third class rate was $35 which is around $650 in todays value. But i dont have figures for second class.....I would guess its somewhere in between. Hope this helps!!

PS. If im not very accurate on these, may someone correct me.

Hi all,

I have no idea of the conversion to today's rates; but the Minimum 1st Class fare was 26 pounds = $130 US. You could reduce that by 3 pounds = $15 by: "taking your passage entirely without meals in the regular Dining Saloon". For fares 35 pounds = $175 and upwards the rebate was 5 pounds = $25.

For the Intermediate Season (which is when Titanic sailed) the Advertized rates were: Parlour Suites on C-deck $1,775 for 1 or 2 passengers ($50 for each additional passenger); those on B-deck $3,300 for 1 or 2 passengers and a Servant. The Suites of Rooms on B-deck cost $1,520 for 1 or 2 passengers and a Servant ($50 for each additional person). Single-berth rooms cost from $150 to $300. A berth in 3-berth room on decks C; D and E cost from Minimum to $160; with most being above the Minimum.

According to a 2nd Class Rates booklet fares were 13 pounds = $65 per adult. - The outside rooms on D-deck were 13 pounds 10 shillings = $67.50 per adult.

Hope this helps,
