Hi ! I am going to travel with my husband to Spain from Hong Kong in late March for 10 days and then visit Lisbon for 2 days before flying back. Can you advise which train pass should we buy base on the below itinerary.

Madrid > Segovia (Mar 23) ; round trip

Madrid > Seville (Mar 24); one way

Seville > Granada (Mar 25) ; round trip

Seville > Cordoba (Mar 26) ; round trip

Seville > Lisbon (Mar 27) ; one way and night train is preferred

Thanks for the help.

Hello Ah Mei Chan,

Thanks for the question.

As per your Itinerary, you can purchase Eurail Spain Pass for your travel.

To purchase the Pass click "Here".

You can purchase 5 days within 1 month Pass for your travel on 21st March, 23rd March, 24th March, 25th March and 26th March. As you will be traveling from Seville to Lisbon on 27th March, you can purchase point to point ticket for this route. A travel day is from 12:00 am to 23:59 pm during which you can take as many trips you wish.

- Seville to Lisbon via Madrid - AVE and Regional train.

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 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.

To purchase seat reservations, kindly follow the above procedure by clicking on "Seat reservations" tab which is on the homepage of our website

Hope this helps!!!

Hi Leora,

Thanks for your rapid reply

Since we would like to have a private Sleeper from Madrid to Lisbon, does it mean we have to buy Trenhotel ticket separately from Eurail Spain Pass?

Best regards,

Hello Ah Mei Chan,

Thanks for your reply.

Kindly drop an email at “” and our team will check if private sleeper is available for your sector and travel date.

As your travel from Madrid to Lisbon is not covered under Eurail Spain Pass, you will need to purchase separate point to point ticket for this route.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
