Train class

We will be taking a train from Madrid to Barcelona, there are five of us we we are wondering which class tickets to purchase, they have 2nd and 1st class

This is my first time taking and train and it’s a 2hr 45 min ride.

Just wondering if it’s a big difference between the two and if it’s worth the extra dollars.

Thanks

There is a bit more room in Preferente, but Turista is better than domestic first on most US airlines,

There is a small meal if you take the Preferente Class.

with preferente you get a bit more room, leather seats and the possibility to use lounge room in the train station before the ride. If you get an offer where there is no much difference in price, get the preferente. otherwise turista or web fares are more than ok.
