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. With five fast daily trains from Milan to Trieste, the easiest way to travel between the two cities is by rail. The four-hour journey runs east across the North Italian Plain, passing through several of the region’s most notable cities: Verona, Vicenza and Padua among them. The final part of the run skirts the head of the Adriatic. Unfortunately, there are no great views of Venice, but there’s a great stretch along the coast on the final approach into Trieste. Sit on the right side of the train for the best of those views.

    The direct trains from Milan to Trieste are Trenitalia Frecciabianca services. In addition to the five direct trains each day, there are additional connections via Venice Mestre. This option relies on a Frecciabianca train to Mestre and then an onward connection to Trieste on a slow regional train. Bookings for all journeys from Milan to Trieste normally open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.
