Train travel in Spain

Jump to last reply

Thanks to the help I received through this forum our itinerary for Spain traveling from Sept 13 returning Oct 17 is complete. The advice while creating the itinerary along with trip reports and responses to inquiries from other travelers have provided valuable information.

I am having some trouble deciding how to approach train tickets for portions of our trip and was hoping someone will give me some advice. I have already purchased the long distance tickets, Sevilla to Madrid and Madrid to Barcelona. My dilemma is the purchase of train tickets for the shorter train rides. My husband and I are both over 60, so as I understand we would qualify for the Tarjeta Dorada card which can be purchased only in Spain. Most of our shorter trips if I am correct, do not qualify for the discounts available buying in advance. The majority of our shorter trips will be done Monday-Thursday which I believe would give us the 40% discount. The train travel I am speaking, all of which are round trip are:

Sevilla to Cordoba
Madrid to Toledo
Madrid to Segovia
Barcelona to Montserrat
Barcelona to Figueres

Not only am I thinking of the savings, but also the commitment to a stringent time table should I purchase too far in advance. Do you see any problems with waiting until we get to Spain to purchase the shorter train tickets? Perhaps the more popular routes a few days in advance? Is there something I may not be considering?

Thank you.
