Does Renfe enforce luggage weight limit for train travel?

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites! I've been away from this forum for too long, but am now planning a trip to Spain for May 2012 and need some help!

I'm working on the itinerary & travel plans - will post the itinerary for comments later. My question now has to do with Renfe trains. I was considering the Renfe ALTARIA train 9:10-13:35 for the leg from Granada to Madrid. However, I was thrown for a loop today when I noticed the Renfe website says there is a total luggage weight limit of 20 kg per person, including carryon. We each travel with 1 suitcase & 1 carryon and keep the weight under 23kg for the checked bag & 10kg for the carryon, but there is no way we can get the combined luggage weight under 20 kg per person.

If you have experience on Renfe trains, please comment as to whether they actually weigh your bags and/or somehow enforce the luggage weight limit. Also, is there an area adequate for storage of normal size suitcases on the trains? Since our luggage will have a combined weight in the range of 30kg per person, should I give up on using Renfe for travel days and concentrate on plane & bus options?

Thanks for your help!
