Combinado Cercanias (RENFE question)

Jump to last reply

Hi. Just wondering if anyone has ever tried to use the combinado cercanias.

I'm traveling on the AVE from Cordoba to Madrid and plan to use the free cercanias ticket to go to the airport.

I know I have to go to the cercanias ticket machine to get a ticket. But am a bit confused about a 3-hour window to use this.

Is this I have to leave the station before the 3-hour elapses? Can I get the ticket as soon as I arrive for a train leaving 3 hours hence so I can still walk around Madrid some? Or is it that I have before 3 hours to claim the cercanias ticket even if my travel is about 4 hours after I arrive.

Please advise.

Thank you.
