Train Travel between Lisbon, Portugal and San Sebastian, Spain

Jump to last reply

We are traveling from Lisbon to San Sebastian and plan to take the train because of the exorbitant car drop-off charges between countries. We are two adults, one teen and one child. I looked into flying but that was really expensive too.

We can (1) take the Lusitania hotel train to Madrid and rent a car there for our trip north;
(2) take a regular train from Lisbon to Salamanca, arrive at 12:30 a.m. (7 hours on the train), or (3) take the regular train all the way to San Sebastian (12 hours).

Does the non-hotel train have sleeping cars? Is it air-conditioned? We were inclined to travel to Salamanca but the train gets in after midnight and that will disrupt sleep for some of my family. Also, we would need to stay in a hotel but it would only be til the next day, when we would rent a car and head to Segovia on our way north.

Thank you.
