Trains / RENFE

Postby anyroads » Mon Oct 03, 2022 7:32 pm

Looking at trains out there for late October / early November, it seems a lot of trains are already booked out.

What is happening ?

I do realise there is some kind of free travel out there, but I assume it is for workers, not tourists. Can't believe people are jumping on trains at that time of year travelling all over the place !

I think the free travel is for the local trains. I've just been to Sevilla by train from Malaga and booked as soon as they came available online. The outward one got busier as it did a couple of stops, but the homeward bound one was packed full at Seville. When I arrived back at Maria Zambrano the station was very busy. I did travel Monday and Friday which perhaps are busier. Usually we travel midweek which tends to be a bit quieter.

Good Morning

I have just found the article announcing this program and it mentions International tourists as well

Late October to early November? Could it be the bank holiday and puente?

Things seem to have settled down on the trains again, perhaps.

I was able to book online for 10th May travelling from Seville, and back later in the month without any problem. Also, the trains were not showing "fully booked" as per a year ago !
