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.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. The direct EuroCity train from Vienna to Venice is one of Europe’s great rail trips. Sadly, there is just the one daytime train in each direction on this route. The first part of this daytime journey travels south from Vienna on the world-famous Semmering rail route. There are higher mountains elsewhere in the Alps, but few have the kind of delicate beauty of the hills that surround the Semmering Railway.

    The cheapest fares from Vienna to Venice are released for sale about four months prior to travel (although full-fare tickets for daytime journeys may go on sale up to one month earlier). Book early for the cheapest tickets.

    Austrian Railways (ÖBB) also run an overnight train between Vienna and Venice. That night train takes a different route, running via Salzburg.

    The daytime train from Vienna to Venice does not hurry, stopping 15 times on its journey between the two cities. Klagenfurt and Villach are the two main Austrian cities served by this EuroCity train. Once over the border into Italy, the two notable towns where the train stops are Udine and Treviso.

    In Vienna the trains leaves from Hauptbahnhof, making a second stop 5 minutes later to pick up passengers at Wien Meidling. You have a choice of two stations to alight in Venice: Mestre and Santa Lucia. The latter, located right by the Grand Canal, is much more convenient for the heart of Venice.
