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. Travelling by train from Madrid to Seville is very simple. Trains speed frequently between the two cities. Most services on the route are high-speed AVE trains, but you'll also encounter Alvia, Avant and Intercity trains on this connection.

    This is part of Spain’s very first high-speed rail route, opened in 1992 when Seville hosted the EXPO fair. Heading south from Madrid, you’ll see Toledo away to the right. The route then cuts through the Toledo Hills and, a little later, sweeps through the rugged Sierra Morena to reach Córdoba. From there it's a pleasant run down the Guadalquivir Valley to Seville.

    Booking for the AVE services generally opens about four months in advance of travel, which is when you'll find cheap tickets, but this can vary. Bookings for other trains on this route open two months prior to travel. And because the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches, sometimes you'll find trains much longer or much shorter in advance. Contact us if you're having trouble finding tickets and we'll email you when booking opens.
