    Do be aware when travelling on high-speed Renfe railway in Spain.

    Our journey from Madrid to Barcelona a few weeks ago was fine – excepting that security wouldn’t allow my treasured Bear Grylls knife (stored in my backpack), on board.
    Yes, you must go through security similar to an airport Central Search and this may take some time.
    The train was exceptionally comfortable and there was great WiFi with a choice of movies and a dining car.

    However, on the return trip I became more and more suspicious that Ryanair had become the owner of the company! Firstly we discovered on a reminder email sent the day before our journey that there were baggage regulations – the same as with flying. Each bag over ‘cabin bag size’ would cost 15 euros; if not prepaid, the price would double!
    There was some confusion at the ‘boarding gate’ where people were held in queues for 20 minutes prior to being allowed to proceed to the platform. More and more like Ryanair, they even had those racks to measure your baggage and clumps of people hanging around while charges for excess baggage were being calculated.
    On-board, it was still comfortable though there were no food options available, just a vending machine at 2.60 for a can of Pepsi! ..and the WiFi kept cutting out until it became impossible.

    Going through the booking process there had been nothing stand-out to tell us we were actually opting for the so called 'low-cost option' – and for us the price worked out the same as the initial outbound journey.

    The happy ending – well I got my knife back in Madrid! I actually use it quite a lot, particularly when on the farm.

    Pretty good. Easy to understand clean and some announcements were in English. Ticket machine was easy to understand and pay.

    First Class Price and 2nd class services:
    Since when did they start charging for drinks? Also worst WiFi ever on a system like this. London Tube 10X as fast. I’m going to fly. MAD-BCN next time. Not worth it.

    The Cercanias were for me, more comfortable than the normal metro trains. Perhaps also because they tend to head towards less densely populated parts of the city.
