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. The journey by train from Berlin to Warsaw is easy to accomplish. The train which serves this route is called the Berlin-Warszawa-Express (BWE). It leaves Berlin 4 times each day for the journey of just under 600 km to Warsaw. The route tracks east from the German capital, crossing the River Oder into Poland. As you travel further east, a landscape of seemingly endless forests gives way to arable land. The principal city on the journey is Poznan, exactly midway between Berlin and Warsaw.

    Tickets for the Berlin-Warszawa-Express generally go on sale 2 months prior to travel, and this is a route where it really pays to book early if you are keen to get a bargain fare. Seat reservations are compulsory for journeys on the BWE from Berlin to any destination in Poland. the cost of that seat reservation is included in the price of your ticket.

    The BWE is part of the EuroCity brand, with comfortable trains with both first and second class seating. This is a route where the trains can be full, and you may want to consider travelling first class for that little bit of extra comfort. All BWE trains carry a restaurant car serving drinks, snacks and light meals.
