"Fast ". 15/11/2015
It was our family first time travel in Europe by train as we usual drove wherever convenience. This high speed train was very impressive of its comfort, steady and speedy. We were surprised to the hospitality, food, drink offered, and have to say thank you to those assistants although one of them was not very friendly when I asked for a sparkling wine. The other lady was pleased to send me the drink when I requested again. Overall was V Good.
"Unavailable seat"Steven e. 03/11/2015
When I went to sit in my assigned seat there was another individual in it. The staff on the train did not move him and there were no other first class seats available so I had to sit in second class.
"it was a good experience "Deepak p. 02/11/2015
one small suggestion, when the tickets been booked we need to get the train tickets directly to the mailing address. instead of downloading the tickets going through many option. bit confusing.
"Flawless!"Edward s. 30/10/2015
We took 3 train trips in Spain, and all went off without a hitch. I bought the tickets online months in advance and printed our boarding passes at home. We walked right on the trains and took our assigned seats. Nothing easier or convenient than that!
"Enjoyable Trip"Shailendra k. 30/10/2015
Trip was enjoyable thanks to the beautiful scenery.
"Thanks RailEurope!"Wai Ying Christine t. 20/08/2015
I purchased Renfe Spanish high speed train tickets from Barcelona to Madrid at Rail Europe, which saved me a lot of trouble going through the user-unfriendly Renfe online ticketing service! The train was very comfortable and fast. Very pleasant journey. I would give 3 stars to "Value for money" since the prices rised a lot in just a few days.
"Wonderful experience"Vinod c. 20/08/2015
.we were quite happy with the experience. It is anytime better than travelling by air. Thank you.
The journey was smooth. No delays. Plus we were surprised to find out that our purchased ticket included metro tickets to get us to Barcelona Sants (train station). Apparently it was stated in French so if we didn't show our tickets to the information counter, we would have just purchased additional metro tickets on that day.
"Highly recommended!"Wing Chi c. 02/06/2015
It is fast and comfortable , recommended to travel by train between cities! It saves more time than travelling by flight.
"Excellent trip"Maksim k. 31/05/2015
It was good journey by train. But There was one minus it was delayed on 20 minutes. In general i like it.
"Pleasant and comfortable ride"Brenda Lisabeth m. 18/05/2015
My trip from Barcelona to Madrid on 6th May 2015 was a very pleasant and comfortable journey. It was my first trip on a European rail service and I was very impressed with the service, comfort and convenience.
"Madrid to Barcelona and back "Umer a. 18/05/2015
It was an excellent service. Easy to book online ahead of time. Easy to check in. The train was clean. The seats were comfortable. Would be better if pillows were provided as well. Cafeteria was nice and had enough options available for the journey. Over all the experience was excellent.
"Great AVE"Lok Hin l. 13/05/2015
The AVE Train is great for travelling in Spain. Comfortable and Convenience.
"Great Experience but Pricey"Karen s. 01/05/2015
The only negative comment I have is the cost - roundtrip from Barcelona to Madrid was over $400 US. Otherwise the trains were new, clean and comfortable and it was a great experience.
