"The way to travel!"

  James w. 
My wife and I booked the Renfe Ave high speed train between Barcelona and Madrid in September, 2014. We booked it online from Chicago, got a great price, and printed out our tickets and took them with us. Everyone in the Estacion Sants was very helpful and we found our seats and stowed our luggage without any problems. The ride was wonderful: very smooth, no bumps, very quiet, and of course, very fast. The three hour trip seemed even quicker since our seats were so comfortable. We would highly recommend Renfe over any other mode of transportation, this is the way to travel.

Awesome ride! One of the most advance trains I've ever been in. Really convenient. Cool and great experience overall. Chris  

"Happy staff the highlight"

  Jacinta k.  26/09/2014
The journey from Barcelona to Montpellier was as you'd expect from a European train: clean, organised and well, high speed. The highlight was one of the catering staff at the canteen who clearly enjoyed his job and life in general and provided joviality and humour to all he served. My group and I enjoyed observing his contentment and how me made everyone smile.

Train was on time, clean, and comfortable at a great price  

"Trip from Madrid to Barcelona"

  Mei Lin f.  20/09/2014
I will definitely recommend travelling with Renfe high speed trains.  

"Valencia to Barcelona"

  David Glyn e.  15/09/2014
Trip from Valencia to Barcelona and return was very comfortable and far less stress than driving. Taking into account the cost of tolls and fuel for a car journey, not a bad price either.  

"Barcelona to Malaga"

  Seng Tat n.  12/09/2014
It was a pleasant ride to commute from Barcelona to Malaga using Renfe train. The service was great and the ride was comfortable. The in-train meal was good too.  

"Great Ride"

  Carole w.  11/09/2014
The train was on time and the journey was smooth. A great way to get from Montpellier St-Roch to Barcelona Sants!  


  Zuraida z.  10/09/2014
a great option to travel. The train was on time, clean and very comfortable. Suggestion : My ticket was all in Spanish. It would be good if it has English text on it. Free WiFi on train would be good as well.  

"My experience"

  Baskar v.  08/09/2014
From VALENCIA-BARCELONA SANTS while travel with kids there not enough space for put my baby stroller so keep the luggage space. And other thing are very fine and comfort.

"Madrid to Barcelona 8.24.2014"

  Donald y.  03/09/2014
Everything worked out fine. The train was comfortable and convenient. Taking the train was much easier and more interesting taking a plane. We were able to see a little more of the country this way. Embarking/disembarking was really quick. The only thing we had a problem with was with the online reservation system. Initially, we were told we had second class reservations, and we were charged for them, only to find out the system overbooked us and that we had to go with first class reservations. In the end, everything worked out and we were refunded our money.

  Donald y.  01/09/2014
Traveled from Barcelona to Madrid. It was good experience. The trolley with coffee came only once. I think it could be repeated. Request online booking more friendly. Renfe starts in English, but by the time you come to the payment it goes Spanish. Pl check Over all it was good.
