Spain train help needed

Jump to last reply

We have everything set for our November trip in Spain except the trains, which is still unresolved. And, I’m having the hardest time with it! We started out thinking we’d purchase point to point train tickets for moving around Spain, but now decided we’d get a Eurail Spain Pass (not a Renfe Spain Pass) since they’re currently running a special, one free extra day, plus we are two traveling together. I’m checking the point to points, and if I’m doing the math correctly, the costs surprisingly seem not that far apart. So for flexibility, I think going with the pass is the way to go.

I do have a couple of questions though. We’ll get a 4 day pass, though we might have 5 days of train usage. The 5th day is a day trip - Madrid to Cuenca and back - which we would not do if weather was bad or if we meet up with friends in Madrid (unlikely, but possible). If we use one of the train days for this day trip, then one of the other train travel days will have to be dropped, or bought as point to point. Should it be Burgos to Leon (take the bus) or Santiago de Compostela to Porto (take the bus)? For the Portugal portion I’m assuming we’ll be purchasing additional train fare anyhow. The other 2 trips which seem longer and would use the pass more efficiently are, Madrid to Burgos, and Leon to Santiago de Compostela.

Which would be the likely one to drop and should the replacement be a bus, not for costs, but for best mode of travel for that section? I just keep stumbling on this train travel and seem unable to resolve it. Thanks.
