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. There are hourly trains from Milan to Padua, and sometimes more. The pace is only moderate on this 230-km route. The train does however use a new dedicated high-speed line between Treviglio and Brescia, which opened in late 2016. This 40-km stretch of new track trimmed about 15 minutes off journey times on the Milan to Padua run. In due course, additional high-speed stretches will bring further time savings. Meanwhile, much of the route follows legacy railway lines, but with Trenitalia and NTV Italo locked in head to head competition on this route, both companies are using their smartest trains on the Milan to Padua run.

    The landscape on this route is initially flat, becoming more interesting as you travel further east. There’s a tantalising glimpse of Lake Garda just prior to Verona and a particularly lovely stretch east of Verona where the route passes through the Soave wine region.

    Bookings for the journey from Milan to Padua usually open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.


    Milan Centrale to Padua

    Trenitalia and NTV Italo compete on the rail route from Milan to Padua, using comfortable high-speed trains - some might say a case of overkill as it's not a high-speed route at all. There is in addition an occasional EuroCity train (operated by Swiss Railways). Trains to Padua all depart from Milan Centrale station. Most trains on this route make four intermediate stops along the way. These include the cities of Brescia, Verona and Vicenza.

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.
