    Changed reply in topic of Bicycles on trains in Spain! by Jeff to However, if you do not have a bicycle bag and you do not intend on disassembling your bike:<br /><br />In <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/spain" rel="nofollow">Spain</a>, fully assembled bicycles are only allowed on board MD (Media Distancia) and other regional trains. There may be a limit of 2 bikes per train, so it always best to check locally. The cost to take an assembled bike on board these trains is approximately €3.<br /><br />Unfortunately, there is no possible combination of these trains that could get you all the way from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santiago-de-compostela" rel="nofollow">Santiago de Compostela</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santander" rel="nofollow">Santander</a> within the span of a day, so you'd have to spend the night somewhere along the way.<br /><br />If you need to keep your bike assembled, the connection would involve taking an MD train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santiago-de-compostela" rel="nofollow">Santiago</a> to Palencia and then a regional (Regional Express) train from Palencia to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santander" rel="nofollow">Santander</a> the following day. The only MD train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santiago-de-compostela" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/santiago-de-compostela">Santiago</a> to Palencia departs in the evening, which is what makes it so that you can't connect to Santander the same day.<br /><br />Generally, you would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>. However, the national rail network of Spain has temporarily ceased ticket sales for the MD trains from Santiago to Palencia. I'm not sure when you're planning on traveling, but you might want to check back at a later date regarding these trains.<br /><br />In the meantime, tickets for the regional trains from Palencia to Santander are able to be purchased on our website. When you pull up the results of your Palencia-Santander search, they will be labeled accordingly as 'Regional' trains.<br /><br />To get from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/segovia" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/segovia">Segovia</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/santander" rel="nofollow">Santander</a> with an assembled bike, you would first have to take a local Cercanias commuter train south to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid">Madrid</a>. At the station in Madrid (the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/madrid-chamartin" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/place/madrid-chamartin">Chamartin station</a>), you would switch to regional train to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/valladolid" rel="nofollow">Valladolid</a>.

Therefore, you would do one search from Madrid to Valladolid and another search for connecting trains from Valladolid to Santander. When you pull up the results of these searches, the regional trains will be labeled accordingly..

    Changed reply in topic of Bicycles on trains in Spain! by Jeff to Hi Robert,<br /><br />A bicycle can be taken on board any train as long as its contained within a purpose-designed bicycle bag (measuring no more than 120cm x 90cm). A bike can fit in such a bag with the wheels and pedals detached and the handlebars parallel to the frame. There would be no charge for your bike in such a bag. For itineraries involving multiple trains and longer journeys, it is advised that this kind of bag be purchased..

    Changed reply in topic of Help - can't buy train ticket from Avignon to Nice - No results found for the given criteria by Jeff to Yes, that still might be good advice. You can still try checking back. However, the French rail network does have construction work planned that day, so I would just say not to have any expectations that it will change.<br /><br />It's a very scenic ride, so it would be great if you could take the train. For long stretches there are views of the Mediterranean to the south and then the rockier terrain of the Maritime Alps to the north..

    Changed reply in topic of country not listed by Jeff to Hi Staci,<br /><br />On <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">www.raileurope.com</a>, we are generally only able to sell to residents of North American countries, so European countries will not appear there as options. However, if you are only purchasing regular point-to-point tickets or reservations, then a passenger's country of residence will not matter. If that is the case, you can just choose the United States as their country of residence, and the tickets we issue would still be valid for them to use.<br /><br />The country of residence only matters when purchasing rail passes. If they are from Austria and need to purchase an actual rail pass, the rail pass would need to be purchased on en.oui.sncf/en..

    Changed reply in topic of Reservations with Spain Rail Pass (Valencia-Seville, Seville-Cordoba-Seville, and Granada-Barcelona) by Jeff to Hi Jerrica,<br /><br />On each of your trains, reservations will be required in addition to the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Valencia to Seville (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />There is only one direct <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> high-speed train from Seville to Valencia. This train departs <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/seville" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/seville">Seville</a> in the early evening and only takes about 4 hours. However, it appears as though this train might currently not be available for much of June.<br /><br />Fortunately, this trip can still be done very easily with a connection in <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a>. In fact, this is an even more common way for travelers to get from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/valencia" rel="nofollow">Valencia</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/seville" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> than the direct train.<br /><br />The trains <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/valencia" rel="nofollow">Valencia</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/seville" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> are <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> trains, which do require reservations.<br /><br />Passholder reservations for the segment from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/madrid-seville" rel="nofollow">Madrid to Seville</a> are currently able to be booked on our website; however, it currently not possible to book passholder reservations for the Valencia-Madrid segment on our website. Instead, for passholder reservations from Valencia to Madrid, you would send an email with your request to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: mailto:customercare@raileurope.com">customercare@raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />When choosing your trains, I would recommend allowing yourself 15-20 minutes to change trains at the station in Madrid (<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/place/madrid-atocha" rel="nofollow">Madrid Atocha</a>).<br /><br /><b><u>Seville-Cordoba (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />I do show that passholder reservations for trains between <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/seville" rel="nofollow">Seville</a> and <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/cordoba" rel="nofollow">Cordoba</a> are now able to be booked on our website.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train-tickets/journeys/article/seville-cordoba" rel="nofollow">Seville to Cordoba</a> (and return) by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Spain Pass’). I would recommend doing separate searches for the outbound and return.<br /><br /><b><u>Granada to Barcelona (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />For the past several years there has been ongoing construction on the rail line outside of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada">Granada</a>. As the construction goes on, there are no direct trains into or out of <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow">Granada</a>. Trains to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada">Granada</a> only go as far as Antequera.<br /><br />To get from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow">Granada</a> to Antequera, you would take a bus from the Granada station. Since these buses substitute for trains that should (eventually) be running on this route, they do accept rail passes, so you can use your <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931">Eurail Spain Pass</a> to board.<br /><br />The train from Antequera to Barcelona is an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> on which reservations are required. However, the Spanish rail network's information about the Antequera-Barcelona trains for dates in June is more ambiguous. At this point, we are unable to tell if the passholder reservations are already sold out for Antequera-Barcelona trains or if they have not yet even been made available to book due to their 'Summer Schedule Change'.<br /><br />Either way, if the direct Antequera-Barcelona <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> train is not able to reserve, you can instead route yourself via <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/madrid" rel="nofollow">Madrid</a> for this trip. This would involve the bus from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/city/granada">Granada</a> to Antequera, an <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow">AVE</a> high-speed train from Antequera to Madrid, and then another <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> high-speed train from Madrid to Barcelona.<br /><br />Neither the direct Antequera-Barcelona <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> train nor the Antequera-Madrid <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/train/renfe-spanish-high-speed-trains-7548">AVE</a> trains are showing up on our website currently. Therefore, I would recommend inquiring about this trip, as well, when you send us your email about the Valencia-Madrid train. In your email, be sure to mention your departure date, number of passengers, class of service, and the fact that you'll be traveling with the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/pass/spain-pass-5931" rel="nofollow">Eurail Spain Pass</a>..

    Changed description of Our trip is coming up in early June, and we've purchased the 3-day Eurail Spain pass so that we can make the following trips for both myself and my husband. <br /><br /> June 8th: Valencia --> Sevilla <br /> June 11th: \ Sevilla --> Cordoba --> Sevilla <br /> June 17th: Granada --> Barcelona <br /><br /> It looks like that almost all of these require reservations on top of the rail pass that we've already paid for. However, when I go into any of their websites to make these reservations, there are very few options for purchase. For example, only one option is available from Sevilla to Cordoba, which is preposterous since I know there is basically one train per hour. <br /><br /> Honestly, I would be willing to just take local trains that take longer but those options seem incredibly limited as well. <br /><br /> Can this all be explained by this "Summer Schedule Change" when we are only 4 weeks out from that first train? <br /><br /> Also: \ I sent a message asking about a mixup between my husband and my rail passes - he was assigned the "youth" pass while I was assigned the "adult" pass when it should have been the other way around. I just never received a response and at this point just have to hope they won't give us any trouble. by Jerrica Werner to Our trip is coming up in early June, and we've purchased the 3-day Eurail Spain pass so that we can make the following trips for both myself and my husband.June 8th: Valencia --&gt; SevillaJune 11th: Sevilla --&gt; Cordoba --&gt; SevillaJune 17th: Granada --&gt; BarcelonaIt looks like that almost all of these require reservations on top of the rail pass that we've already paid for.

    Changed reply in topic of Reservations with Spain Rail Pass (Valencia-Seville, Seville-Cordoba-Seville, and Granada-Barcelona) by Jeff to Hi Jerrica,<br /><br />On each of your trains, reservations will be required in addition to the Eurail Spain Pass.<br /><br /><b><u>Valencia to Seville (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />There is only one direct AVE high-speed train from Seville to Valencia. This train departs Seville in the early evening and only takes about 4 hours. However, it appears as though this train might currently not be available for much of June.<br /><br />Fortunately, this trip can still be done very easily with a connection in Madrid. In fact, this is an even more common way for travelers to get from Valencia to Seville than the direct train.<br /><br />The trains Valencia to Madrid and Madrid to Seville are AVE trains, which do require reservations.<br /><br />Passholder reservations for the segment from Madrid to Seville are currently able to be booked on our website; however, it currently not possible to book passholder reservations for the Valencia-Madrid segment on our website. Instead, for passholder reservations from Valencia to Madrid, you would send an email with your request to <a href="mailto:customercare@raileurope.com" rel="nofollow">customercare@raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br />When choosing your trains, I would recommend allowing yourself 15-20 minutes to change trains at the station in Madrid (Madrid Atocha).<br /><br /><b><u>Seville-Cordoba (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />I do show that passholder reservations for trains between Seville and Cordoba are now able to be booked on our website.<br /><br />For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations from Seville to Cordoba (and return) by searching the route on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Spain Pass’). I would recommend doing separate searches for the outbound and return.<br /><br /><b><u>Granada to Barcelona (with a Eurail Spain Pass)</u></b><br /><br />For the past several years there has been ongoing construction on the rail line outside of Granada. As the construction goes on, there are no direct trains into or out of Granada. Trains to Granada only go as far as Antequera.<br /><br />To get from Granada to Antequera, you would take a bus from the Granada station. Since these buses substitute for trains that should (eventually) be running on this route, they do accept rail passes, so you can use your Eurail Spain Pass to board.<br /><br />The train from Antequera to Barcelona is an AVE on which reservations are required. However, the Spanish rail network's information about the Antequera-Barcelona trains for dates in June is more ambiguous. At this point, we are unable to tell if the passholder reservations are already sold out for Antequera-Barcelona trains or if they have not yet even been made available to book due to their 'Summer Schedule Change'.<br /><br />Either way, if the direct Antequera-Barcelona AVE train is not able to reserve, you can instead route yourself via Madrid for this trip. This would involve the bus from Granada to Antequera, an AVE high-speed train from Antequera to Madrid, and then another AVE high-speed train from Madrid to Barcelona.<br /><br />Neither the direct Antequera-Barcelona AVE train nor the Antequera-Madrid AVE trains are showing up on our website. Therefore, I would recommend inquiring about this trip, as well, when you send us your email about the Valencia-Madrid train. In your email, be sure to mention your departure date, number of passengers, class of service, and the fact that you'll be traveling with the Eurail Spain Pass..
