    Direi che sono entrambe possibili, quindi la risposta dipende dal contesto.

    La frase è riferita ad una situazione specifica!Quindi secondo me ci va il "the,giusto?mi sto riferendo ad un caso specifico!!

    Included in the price is what we generally say, but included in price is sometimes used (as underhouse suggested) as a shortened version where there are space restrictions. For example, on a menu you may see:

    Salads (included in price of main dishes)

    You need to include the in that sentence.

    Packing and trasportation costs are included in the price.

    Hi, I think that "included in price" is never actually correct English. It is used quite a bit because of space restrictions, but even in your menu example above, it is not really correct grammar, it's more of an abbreviation of the full phrase. I don't believe you will ever be wrong in using "included in the price".
