Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

Direct AVE trains run between Barcelona and Seville, or you can take advantage of frequent connections by travelling via Madrid.

  1. Direct AVE trains from Barcelona to Seville cover the 950 km between the two cities in less than 6 hrs. If timings don’t suit, you’ll find several other options each day, all involving a change of train in Madrid Atocha, adding 20 to 50 mins to the overall travel time.

    The journey starts by speeding west from Barcelona into Aragon, crossing the River Ebro near Zaragoza. Then it’s a fast dash across the plains of Castilla–La Mancha, with distant views of the Madrid conurbation to your right. Your train then traverses the Sierra Morena to enter Andalucía.

    Booking generally opens four months in advance, which is when you'll find the cheapest tickets. This can vary, however, as the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches. If tickets aren't yet on sale for your intended travel date, set a booking alert when prompted and we'll send you an email when booking opens.

    Alternatively, you can take the once-daily Talgo train from Barcelona to Seville. With an 11-hr journey time, it certainly isn't fast, but you'll be rewarded with views of the coast south to Valencia and later the mountains as the train cuts through Despenaperros Pass to reach Andalucía.
