  • "Great trip"

    So quick and comfortable - really enjoyed the trip.  
  • "Great trip"

    Comfortable carriages, very fast train, nice lunch (1st class). Usual problem - no indication of which end of the train to board that results in running the length of a crowded platform with heavy suitcases.  
  • "Barcelona to Marseille"

    There seemed to be no working air conditioning for the first half of the trip, passengers alll around me were fanning themselves and I went through a full bottle of water. I had very heavy luggage that I could not lift into overhead storage and there was no floor level storage at the end of the carriage. Train was fast, clean and quiet.  
  • "way to go"

    Train was ontime, clean and comfortable. Train was very busy so baggage storage was a bit of a challenge and we got on the wrong part which didn't help. Otherwise all good.  
  • "Brilliant!"

    Very beautiful train, very speedy check in with very friendly staff! Everything pre booked with raileurope made the trip very easy going. Loved it! Thank you!!  
  • "Efficient service"

    No complaints about the trip, fast and clean train/ journey  
  • "Barcelona to Madrid"

    A very convenient, pleasant, comfortable, easy and enjoyable trip to Madrid. Stations at both ends were easy to access and well signposted.  
  • "great trip and convenient"

    fast train getting you there with no hassle.Better option than a plane for those with luggage, door to door city CBD locations.  
  • "Barcelona to Madrid"

    Rail has to be the best way to travel in Europe. None of the hassle of airports and the associated nonsense. Ticket types were poorly differentiated and I ended up with a Tourist Plus ticket when I clearly ordered a First Class ticket online ... try explaining that in Spanish though...  
  • "Barcelona - Madrid AVG"

    the trip was great the booking was easy on the internet and station staff most helpful we did several trips all went well thankyou I hope to use service again next year  
  • "good transport."

    Not a high speed train but comfortable. The departure time we selected was 1400 h so arrival in Barcelona hotel was 2230hours. Maybe take an earlier train if possible.. Plenty of taxis at 2230 in Barcelona  
  • "Barcelona to Madrid."

    Clean,comfortable, excellent service with warm hand towels, newspapers, refreshments and wine . Punctual great scenery, quiet and centre of city to centre of city. What is there not to like. I will be traveling by train whenever possible in preference to air.  
  • "So Easy"

    The whole process of booking and travelling was so easy. The fast train was brilliant and the metro linked in with the stations easily. Highly recommend this way of travelling around Spain.  
  • "Renfe Spanish high speed train"

    First time on a high speed train and it was a great experience and would certainly recommend this way of travel. Able to appreciate the countryside without having to drive and the speed made it all so much quicker.  
  • "Great trip across the Spain"

    The train trip was very enjoyable, comfortable and on time. The staff were also very friendly. The only issue we had was that during the booking and printing of the tickets, the RENFE website was quite unstable requiring frequent attempts at each step. It was a relief that the e-tickets worked correctly.
