Summarizing my Renfe train ticket before purchase for Madrid to Cordoba

Jump to last reply

The renfre is showing my travel dates earlier than I expected at 73 days out. I do want to take the train after the arrival of our international flight; which arrives at about 7am on a Thursday.

It's been recommended on Fodors that we should allow about 4 hours between our arrival time at the Madrid airport and the train departure at Madrid Atocha. I found an AVE train that leaves around 11:30am the day of our arrival.

I'm trying to decide which ticket fares to purchase online.

IF I purchase the P+ fare in Preferente Class will we be able to access the Preferente Lounge at the train station if we have a long wait for the train or are only full fare Preferente ticket holder given access? I read on a posting here that if you purchase the cheapest Preferente you won't be allowed to use the lounge but I thought someone said by purchasing the "Plus" fare you would.

If all goes well and we have a couple of hours wait I'd like to either take an earlier train or if not available to us then wait in comfort at the train station. Will a P+ Preferente ticket give us that option. Thanks, Deborah
