  • "Erkan Otag’s experience"    
    Excellent  
  • "Train Madrid Malaga return"    
    We took another train journey from Madrid to Malaga and return and I have to say it is the most comfortable way to travel. We find the service clean, punctual and above all the staff friendly. We would recommend this to flying or driving.  
  • "Perfect Ride"    
    fast, comfortable and departed on time. had a good sleep on train.  
  • "Fast "    
    It was our family first time travel in Europe by train as we usual drove wherever convenience. This high speed train was very impressive of its comfort, steady and speedy. We were surprised to the hospitality, food, drink offered, and have to say thank you to those assistants although one of them was not very friendly when I asked for a sparkling wine. The other lady was pleased to send me the drink when I requested again. Overall was V Good.  
  • "Excellent"    
    Very nice  
  • "Fast and fun"    
    From Malaga to Madrid to watch football at Santiago Bernabeu the train was superb. Travelled turist-class and were satisfied with that. Verry good seats. Never been in trains over 300 km an hour. Fun!  
  • "Totally First Class"    
    This is the first time I was travelling first class on Renfe and I must say it was quite an experience. The breakfast was wonderful and so was the ambiance of the coach, which includes the soft, spacious seats. Since a lot of tourists use these trains, I would suggest Renfe offer up a few English newspapers along with the Spanish papers.  
  • "Enjoyable Experience..."    
    I had forgotten how nice it is just to sit back and not have to buckle that seat belt and put seat upright. For short trips the train beats the plane and with the bus station right there in Malaga,very convenient.  
  • "Very comfortable Journey"    
    Excellant!!! When the train was delayed I was compensated by 50% (approx) A Grenat deal!!  
  • "Relaxing trip"    
    Four of us flew into Madrid, and took the RENFE to Sevilla. Online reservations were easy. We took advantage of the inexpensive luggage check to tour the Prado before our train left. After a long flight, it was great to be able to move around on the train.  
  • "it was a good experience "    
    one small suggestion, when the tickets been booked we need to get the train tickets directly to the mailing address. instead of downloading the tickets going through many option. bit confusing.  
  • "Flawless!"    
    We took 3 train trips in Spain, and all went off without a hitch. I bought the tickets online months in advance and printed our boarding passes at home. We walked right on the trains and took our assigned seats. Nothing easier or convenient than that!  
  • "Good trip"    
    It was a good trip to Cordoba by taking Renfe. I will suggest people in Taiwan to do so.  
  • "Amazing!"    
    Thank you for a wonderful trip in the Renfe high speed train from Barcelona to Madrid. Everything from booking the ticket via the internet, arriving at the train and boarding, the journey itself and disembarking in Madrid went seamless and without any problem. What stands out is the friendliness and professional behaviour of the staff on the train. Thank you for a relaxing and comfortable trip.  
  • "Excellent Service "    
    Excellent service from Rail Europe. I appreciated the billing in Indian Rupees. The service by Renfe was excellent. Well connected and equipped stations. Trains were dot on time and coaches very comfortable
