Bus/Train tickets Madrid>Cordoba>Granada>Ronda>Seville>Madrid

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip in mid-October to these places. We are flying in and out of Madrid ,spending the last night there to be safe (we used freq flyer miles, and no options were available flying directly into Andalucia).
Our legs are:
Madrid>Cordoba by train
Cordoba>Granada by bus or train
Granada>Ronda by train (didn't see a bus)
Ronda>Seville by bus or train
Seville>Madrid by train

We plan on taking the train to Cordoba upon arrival in Madrid. About how much time after Madrid arrival should we allow for baggage, immigration, travel to train station, etc, 3-4 hrs?

Do we need to buy the train tickets in advance? From what I read, about 2-3 months prior they will become available. I plan on using the Renfe website to purchase the train tickets. Do I need reserved seats? Is there anything I need to know about different ticket options in general? Are there any discounts for seniors (my husband is 65) or anything else I should be aware of?

On the legs that have bus/train options, I will look for the best schedule. Do I also need to buy the bus tickets in advance? Any preference between the bus and train on these legs?

Thanks.
