The '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/renfe-spain-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/renfe-spain-pass/index.html">Renfe Spain Pass</a>' is unique from other passes in that reservations are included in the cost of the pass itself. Even though there is no additional charge for reservations with the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/renfe-spain-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Renfe Spain Pass</a>', it would still be required that you make reservations on each train. With that said, the process for making reservations is different with this pass. If you purchase the '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/renfe-spain-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/renfe-spain-pass/index.html">Renfe Spain Pass</a>', 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 schedules for your trips under 'Find Fares &amp; Schedules' on the homepage of our website (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>). When searching schedules, you would just do a separate search for each segment. <b><u>Madrid to Seville</u></b> The trains from Madrid to Seville are high-speed '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html">AVE</a>' and '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/alvia/how-to-book.html">Alvia</a>' trains. <b><u>Seville to Algeciras</u></b> Trains from Seville to Cordoba are '<a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">AVE</a>', 'Avant', and 'Talgo' trains.
