New Renfe ( Spanish trains) first class (dis)advantages

Jump to last reply

After purposely buying first class tickets on a TALGO train from Barcelona to Valencia, we were denied access to the VIP lounge. It seems there is no longer any first class access for those who have bought reduced fare tickets. Neither is there any food/drink cart on those trains or the Euromed, I was told. This has all been eliminated. I rarely travel first class on trains so I was unaware of these changes.

Therefore, the first class ticket advantage is now reduced to simply a more comfortable seat. JFYI.

There may be some other bits and pieces of info, but I am unaware if 1st class on the AVE, if not a full fare first class ticket, also does not give you access.

I don't know why this is so since the lounge was totally empty and it seems very petty to have removed the VIP lounge portion of the perk. I can understand the no more food carts with free drinks in time of crisis, but a lounge that is already open.. a real shame and unnecessarily stingy.
