Advance Train Tickets: Madrid to Toledo?

Having traveled through Italy and not getting train tickets in advance, I'm reading it's necessary to do so in Spain. We arrive 7:30am to Madrid and plan on going directly to Toledo to stay 2 nights. Another question: Renfe website indicates English but it reverts to Spanish to buy tickets? Suggestions on both? Thanks so much.

Search renfe under advanced search above. You will find a lot of recent information. Persistence is a real virtue when dealing with renfe.com, but it will work.

We were told that Madrid-Toledo-Madrid is a very popular route and were advised that when we bought our early morning tickets TO Toledo we should also then get our return tickets to Madrid for that evening. If you are flexible with times, I guess you can wait, if not I think it is better to buy beforehand.

agree with PP, we could not get the ticket ( the time we wanted) on the same day.

Thanks for your replies. Despite me attempting to reserve on the renfe website, it reverts to spanish after I put in the destinations. I can't find the advanced search tab. Help?

Follow the advice on www.seat61.com/Europe-train-tickets.htm in the 'How to use the Spanish rail website' section.

You start in Spanish (DO NOT switch to English on their home page), THEN switch to English bottom left when the results page appears.

Thanks, Alec and Man in the set 61. Are you the author/creator of the website to which you referred me? Good stuff.
