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. Speed in comfort from Narbonne to Barcelona by train in just 2 hrs. The swift travel time is due to the opening in 2013 of a high-speed line that cuts under the Pyrenees.

    Real purists who do not like the idea of dashing so fast across the French-Spanish border can always take locals trains that stick to the classic coastal route, crossing into Spain at Portbou (and changing there from a French to a Spanish train for the onward journey through Catalonia to Barcelona). That whole journey will take about 5 hrs.

    Booking opens around 120 days in advance, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets. However, the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches. If you're having trouble finding tickets, contact us and we'll send you an email when booking opens.


    Narbonne to Barcelona

    Three to five times daily (depending on the time of year), a sleek modern high-speed train leaves Narbonne station bound for Barcelona. The trains that travel this route are either Spanish AVEs or French TGVs – some of the latter are double-decker trains so book a seat on the upper level for the best views.

    With just three stops along the way, and some great views of the Pyrenees, the journey is over almost before it has begun. The train terminates at Sants station in Barcelona, although one of the daily services from Narbonne continues beyond Barcelona, running on non-stop to Madrid.

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.
