Advise on passes for Spain

Planning to purchase a pass for Spain in December. What is the best pass to purchase (Renfe pass vs. Spain Eurail pass)? The following will be our itinerary:

Barcelona - Valencia - Madrid - Valladolid - Bilbao - Barcelona

Also there will be 3 of us travelling together but not all will come from the same country. Is it necessary to purchase passes from the country of origin? Or is it possible to purchase all three passes from one country?

Thank you.

Hello Anna,

Thanks for the question.

It is best to purchase Eurail Spain Pass for your travel.

To purchase Eurail Spain Pass click "Here".

You can purchase the Pass from the World website and enter each country of residence respectively as country of residence is mandatory while purchasing a Pass.

Keep in mind that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass. With a Pass you can travel on regional/intercity trains within a country.

In order to book seat reservations, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on “Seat Reservations” & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,

Leora, Rail Europe Travel Expert.
