Raileurope & Buying Train Tix

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all the help from this forum, I have been working on my train tickets. After using RENFE & Petrabax websites for info, as well as Seat61, I went to the raileurope.ca site to purchase the tickets.
I found out that RENFE is now releasing schedules and pricing 120 days in advance, instead of the previous 62.
Using raileurope.ca, I booked our tickets Barcelona - Madrid on AVE for $72 CAD pp including fees for Sept 28, and Madrid - Granada on Alteria for $43 CAD pp, all in for Oct 3. Our seats were selected and reserved for when we received our tickets by email.
I beliieve that is only a $14 fee total for two people for two trips! Pretty reasonable.
I printed the tickets out from the email they sent me, and we are good to go.
I think these rates are pretty cheap and comparable to the best rates I saw on RENFE, but I could stand to be corrected on that.
Anyway, hope this is useful to any else buying tix for Spain.
