My partners and I planned a five-night stay in Córdoba, flying to Málaga and staying two nights there before proceeding to Córdoba. I had great difficulty trying to reserve train tickets on the RENFE website and instead used Loco2, who processed my order efficiently and sent PDF files of the tickets in the same way as airlines send boarding passes...

We had a lovely ride to Rhonda and then were able to have lunch and proceed by train through the gorge at El Chorro and the lakes, it was a great day with beautiful views. The historical value, was that it was built by the British for the servicemen and their families to go into the mountains for a break.

This review is for the overall service experience. Renfe's online portal to purchase tickets is not at all user friendly and does not work very well with credit cards from outside Spain. At best, Renfe's online portal... More

Been into the one in Malaga today wanting to make enquires about trains to San Sebastian; Last week I went in a the guy basically didn't want to help at all ;... More
