Prices explained

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 train from Madrid to Ronda is the simplest way to travel between the Spanish capital and this Andalusian mountain town – a distance of about 530 km. Twice-daily Altaria trains take less than 4 hrs. If the timings of the direct trains don’t fit into your plans, there is an additional late morning option from Madrid, with a single change of train at Antequera-Santa Ana, which takes about 30 mins longer than the direct trains.

    This is a journey full of interesting sights as the train speeds through the Toledo Hills and the Sierra Morena to Andalucía. The final part of the journey has wonderful views of the hills that dominate the Ronda region.

    Bookings generally open a couple of months in advance, though this can vary as the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches. It pays to book early if you are looking for cheap tickets, so if you're having trouble finding trains, contact us and we'll email you as soon as booking opens.

    The two direct Altaria high-speed trains leave Madrid Atocha station in the morning and the afternoon. The first half of the journey is fast until the train leaves the dedicated high-speed line at Antequera-Santa Ana for its final run to Ronda. Trains stop three or four times on the way, including in Córdoba.

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.
