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.

  1. You’ll find many options for trains from Barcelona to Valencia. Euromed and Talgo trains are the mainstay offerings, but there are occasional services using other train types. The route runs down Spain’s east coast for much of the journey, occasionally dipping inland for a short stretch. Sit on the left for the best views of the sea and the wetlands of the Ebro Delta. On the fastest trains, the journey is about 3 hrs long.

    You'll find cheaper tickets if you book in advance on this busy route. Depending on the train type and time of year, bookings open between six and 20 weeks prior to travel, so if you're having trouble finding tickets just contact us and we'll email you when booking opens. The general principle is that fares hike up closer to the date of travel. An exception is the Regional Express which is offered at a fixed fare that never varies.
