There aren't family discounts and children pay almost like an adult. The toilets in the weren't very clean. The only good thing was that we could arrive from Malaga to Cordoba in 1 hour.

We booked our train tickets through RailEurope and payed a service fee of $7.95 but got a fabulous price on the tickets because we booked early. If you can, book first class which we did from Madrid to Barcelona. The day that we traveled, we got a delicious pasta dish, salad and cake. They also give you plenty to drink.... More

The Renfe high speed train system is as good as any of the European trains. They travel at 300 kph (180 mph) so it is much faster than driving. Pay the extra for first class; seating is two seats on one side and one on the other with lots of space, electrical outlets and a big table. The service is... More

On time, very comfortable way to travel around Spain. The trains are modern, spacious and offer more than most airlines. I highly recommend high speed train travel.

We traveled from Madrid to Toledo return. Very clean trains. Very efficient. Both on time. Booked tickets by app GoEuro which was good although renfe insisted on printing the tickets at the Atocha station which was a little annoying. Good security. Great experience.

I travelled SPECIAL ASSISTANCE from Malaga to Madrid. Lots of legroom. Better than the plane. Courteous staff. If over 65, for E6 you can buy a Carta Dorada. Just show your passport.
