    Good alternative to flying |
    "The ticket from Australia was "open" so attend the ticket office in the week beforehand to secure designated seats for €4 each. Half the carriage faces backwards. There are 2 stations in Lisbon. Board earlier at the Terminus (not Lisboa Oriente) to secure baggage space in your carriage. There is a cafe on board but we took food. On board, you need to show both your Australian issued tickets AND your seat allocation receipt to the guard. I travelled with an elderly companion and access was easy at Lisbon with lifts at the Porto end. A great trip. "

    Eurail Spain 5 day Pass |
    "Very nice trains. Little disappointed by lack of meals or other mobile snack service on board given we had a first class ticket. Found the reservation process a little tedious. Was not able to reserve one train (Seville - Madrid) from Australia. Had to wait until we had arrived in Spain to reserve at Madrid Atocha ticket desk. Found it very expensive to reserve a seat. Was happy to reserve but it is too expensive when compared to the ticket purchase price. "
