Spain-Lisbon travel in Dec 16/ Jan 17


I'm from Singapore. Am traveling around Spain and to Lisbon in Dec 16/Jan 17. 2 travelers. My itinerary is as below:

Barcelona to Madrid - 30 Dec 16

Madrid to Toledo (return trips) - 1 Jan 17

Madrid to Seville - 2 Jan 17

Seville to Valencia - 5 Jan 17

Valencia to Lisbon (via Madrid) - 6 Jan 17; night train from Madrid to Lisbon, arrive at Lisbon on 7 Jan 16

(1) Should i buy 6-days Renfe Spain Pass and additional night train tickets from Madrid to Lisbon?

(2) About seat reservations, I read that I can do the seat reservation via Email. Is it possible? Or I can only reserve my train tickets at the respective local train stations? I am concerned about seat reservation at local train station due to holidays peak season.

Appreciate your advice. Thank you.

Hello Hazel,

Thanks for the question.

Yes, it is best to purchase Renfe Spain Pass for your travel in Spain and point to point ticket for your travel from Madrid to Lisbon.

As you have 6 train journey's in Spain. you can purchase 6 journey's within 1 month Pass.

You will have to retrieve your seat reservation at the departure train station before boarding a high speed train. The reservation is included in your Renfe Spain Pass. No surcharge applies!

To purchase Renfe Spain Pass click "Here".

You can purchase point to point ticket and travel as follows:

- Madrid to Lisbon - Trenhotel train.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to 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. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
