Renfe Pass reservations

Hello, we are traveling from Canada to Spain. We are looking to purchase the Spain Renfe Rail pass. We are wondering how long/easy it is to reserve through the customer center once we have validated our e-pass?

    The Renfe Spain Pass is unique from most other rail passes in that it is issued electronically (you would receive an email from us with a link to print the pass.) It is also unique in that reservation costs are included in the cost of the pass itself. Considering that reservations are an additional cost to the Eurail Spain Pass, the Renfe Spain Pass generally works out to be the most economical option for multiple train trips in Spain.

    The Renfe Spain Pass is also distinguishable from other passes in that it is purchased for 'segments', as opposed to 'travel days'. A 'segment' refers to each individual train you take (i.e. '6 Segments in 1 Month'=6 different trains in 1 month).

    Even though there is no additional charge for reservations when you purchase the Renfe Spain Pass, it would still be required that you make reservations for each train. With that said, the process for making reservations is different with this pass. If you purchase the Renfe Spain Pass, you would request your reservations just by replying to an email that we send to you when the order for your pass is processed. For planning purposes, you can check the schedules for a trip by doing a search on our homepage (

    You can also make reservations locally at the ticket counters in the stations. Keep in mind, however, that trains are subject to available.
