    Hi Kanika,

    For the requested itinerary, your best option would be the Renfe Spain Pass. For the Renfe Spain Pass, you would click here:

    The Renfe Spain Pass is distinguishable from other rail passes in that reservations are included in the cost of the pass itself.

    Another way that it is distinguishable from other rail passes is that it is issued 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 actual charge for reservations with a Renfe Spain Pass, it would still be necessary that you make reservations on each of your trains. 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 still just check the schedules for a particular trip by searching the route on our homepage, For the purpose of just checking schedules, you would leave the 'I have a rail pass' box unchecked.

    The Renfe Spain Pass is also unique from most other rail passes in that it is issued electronically. When you purchase the Renfe Spain Pass, you would receive an email from us with a link to print the pass.

    For the most comfortable travel experience, we recommend booking your pass for 1st class.

    Madrid to Barcelona

    From Madrid to Barcelona, you would take an AVE high-speed train.

    Barcelona-Costa Brava

    For rail to the Costa Brava, your connection would depend on your specific destination.

    You could take an AVE high-speed train or Avant train up to Girona or Figueras; however, these are not on the coast.

    There are also regional trains that go through Girona to towns on the coast like Llanca and Colera just south of the French border.

    Barcelona to Seville

    To get from Barcelona to Seville, you would take a direct AVE high-speed train.

    Seville to Madrid

    From Seville to Madrid, you would take a high-speed AVE or Alvia train.
