I understand that AVE is high-speed for long distance, Avant is high-speed for medium distances. What about Aliva? On the Renfe "Our Trains" it's listed below AVE. I'm looking at tickets between several cities where all 3 trains are offered. We are traveling with a couple big bags and carryon(s), so we'll probably try to get Preferente or CLub tix. Any real difference in comfort on AVE vs. Alvia vs. Avan?
