The purpose of this review is to make people aware of the perils and pitfalls of trying to buy Renfe tickets. Basically their web site flat does not work to buy tickets with an American credit card and by PayPal unless you have cell service in the location where you are trying to buy a ticket. And forget buying a... More

It is terribly frustrating to try to book a train ticket with Renfe's website. Alvia's trips simply don't show up on the website. Their website hasn't worked properly since I can remember. It's amazing how problems linger in this company. I am from Spain I can only imagine how confusing and difficult would be for tourists to deal with this... More

We used this transportation in Malaga, we used the regional one several times to different destinations, no problem getting your tickets either at a booth station or machine. There was always someone to help us out .the trains are clean, reasonably priced and very punctual.

Used the service to get from the Airport to Torromolinos, was abit nervous at first but it so quick, 10 minutes to resort, then used it to go up and down the coast from Malaga to Fuengirola. The Station is at the airport just a 2 minute walk out of the Airport Terminal. Cheap, reliable and clean.

Good transport. I got the wrong ticket though. I ended up getting the day rider I used when I was in Barcelona. I was heading towards tarragona. I had to pay the inspector the right ticket on the train. However, it has been a nice trip. Very similar to the national rail services we have in the UK

This is the best way to get about along this coastline. The trains arrive when they should. They are clean & efficient. There is a station inside Malaga airport so we used it to get to our hotel in La Carihuela and we arrived within ten minutes and it was only 3 euros for us both. Better than any transfer... More

I am sorry to say that we did not catch our train from Madrid to Valencia Saturday the 8. April 2017 because of delays with the Iberia flight from Copenhagen to Madrid. We drove around in the airport with the flight for 30 minutes after landing. In the airport we called the Renfe office 5 times to change our tickets... More

I have travelled by train substantially in Spain. The trains are punctual, efficient and spotlessly clean. The staff by and large speak good English and are helpful and friendly.

First of all the pluses. Renfe is clean and comfortable in Spain. The big plus is the scenery ! There are some spectacular sites to be enjoyed from the comfort of the train. BUT......the big drawback for me is tge cost ! I recently had to go to Alicante from Gibraltar. The cost by bus was €55 and the train......€244... More
