    I have been on this trainline from Valencia to Madrid and it was amazing - huge comfortable chairs, lots of leg room and air con (much needed in June). Had a screen where you could monitor your journey which was fun for the kids (as well as looking out of the window). They are not kidding when they advise you of the boarding time - our train left 2 minutes early by their clock.

    This will not be the same experience as that, you probably took Renfe AVE, this is OUIGO which is a budget operator. There is another budget operator Avlo, plus another full service operator called Iryo.

    Still way better than Ryanair/easyJet etc. But this is still a budget version - if you are on the bottom deck in particular it can be a little cramped. Lots of pictures online to compare - worth mentioning!! (edited)

    Ouigo fares always start this cheap. Book direct and with a fee-free card not via the trainline as you don't pay any booking fees...9 euros works out at £7.88

    We have done this similar from Alicante to Madrid. Highly recomended.
    Dead cheap and only 2 hours. Wonderful way to see the countryside of Spain, and surprisingly green.
    After doing this, it drove us to do more train travel in Europe.

    'it drove us to do more train travel in Europe'; excluding the UK. In the UK train travel drives you to drive more

    UK is only 60 years behind the EU, we'll show them in 2035+ how we're leading from the turnip sunny uplands

    Barcelona to Madrid, 626.4km, for £8.90
    Glasgow to London for, 648.6km, from £32.80 - £107.30 on the same day as above (15/08/23).
    Twelve times as much for a similar journey. what a fantastic system.

    Even that's not a fair comparison as this is an actual high speed rail line, whereas the UK has zero of those for domestic travel

    WTF, £6 for an offpeak single journey lasting 6 mins. Madness

    Don’t ask the price from Reading to London

    The comments are encouraging to buy even though I've not got any plans of traveling to Spain this year

    It's often this price and you pay extra by using Trainline for no reason

    I want to get on one just to travel on a train at this speed. Looks fantastic

    Went a few years back on the high speed train from Madrid to Seville. Had always been keen to do it having heard about it years ago. It's a little rough round the edges now but all the more charming for it and goes through some incredible countryside. Oh, and the biggest plus is you get off at Seville which is a gorgeous city

    Yep I've done this. Brilliant trip. If you're a solo traveller or a couple paying for the XL seat is recommended. These are previously first class carriages so you get much more room and less people in the carriage. Do it- you won't be disappointed!
    And yes- turn up at least 30mins before departure as your luggage needs to be X-rayed!
    graham.johnsonZCH's avatar
    Yes you can't start boarding though until 30 minutes before departure and they close the gates 5 mins before departure, even though they can easily make up lost time. (edited)

    Took this exact train last year. It was exceptionally nice. You can also get extra legroom seats on the upper level for a very reasonable price. One of the nicest holidays - flew into Madrid and flew out of Barcelona. Personally, I preferred Madrid.

    Is it OK to take folding bikes on this? How can I find the T&C around this?
