Trains in Spain
Renfe has major hubs in Madrid and Barcelona, rail services to all the regions of Spain and international routes to France and Portugal. Spain has invested substantially in developing its high-speed AVE services. These lines now connect Madrid with Barcelona, Malaga, Seville, Alicante, Zaragoza, Valladolid, Santiago De Compostela, La Coruna and points in-between, significantly reducing the times of long-distance train journeys across much of Spain.
Renfe operates different types of trains depending on the route. Renfe offers: Suburban trains, which usually operate within a single province; Middle-Distance trains, which travel within an autonomous region and adjacent communities; and Long-Distance trains, which travel from one end of Spain to the other. Long-Distance Renfe trains feature numerous services including meals, refreshments, newspapers and movies.
Renfe's fleet of trains include:
AVE: These are Renfe's high-speed trains, most commonly used for long-distance routes. The AVE train from Madrid to Barcelona is the most popular high-speed train route in Spain. AVE trains offer a variety of services, including a "silent car" for those wishing to rest for the duration of their journey.
Alvia: Alvia trains operate on AVE tracks at lower speeds. Alvia trains are also used to reach destinations in Spain which are not located on AVE routes.
On Renfe trains you can take 3 packages (suitcases, handbags, backpacks, briefcases and similar) that do not exceed between three 25 kg. The largest package should have a maximum size of 85 x 55 x 35 cm (height-width-depth).
Atendo is the free service offered by Renfe for Attention and Assistance to travellers with disabilities or reduced mobility. This service informs, guides and facilitates transit through stations and assistance in getting on and off trains.
We understand, we also love pets! On Renfe trains, a maximum of one animal (dog, cat, bird not belonging to a pen or ferret) per passenger whose maximum weight does not exceed 10 kg is allowed. They should always be placed in a closed container measuring 60x35x35 cm.
