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 Madrid to Cáceres is a reminder that not all Spanish rail journeys are on high-speed lines. This is a classic old-style route, served by trains that are less modern but still perfectly comfortable. Sit back and enjoy the passing scenery on this run through rural Spain which takes 3 hrs 30 mins.

    The trains that ply the route are classed as either Intercity or Regional Express services (and there's also a once-weekly Media Distancia service). In terms of travel time, price and quality of the train, there's not much difference between these train types. To find the full range of trains serving this route, specify 'Madrid Atocha Cercanías' as your starting station in the Spanish capital.

    Bookings for this route normally open two months prior to travel, though the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches - sometimes as early as 120 days in advance. However, this is a route on which you won't find cheap tickets in advance since the fare on any given train is fixed.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
