We plan on taking 4 round trips from Seville to close by cities in Andalusia. Will a 4 day pass work? How many legs can you travel per day

FROM YOUR SITE: "A rail day is a 24-hour period from midnight to midnight. You may take as many trains as you wish during the 24 hour time frame and still only use one day of travel on a pass. For instance, if you were take a day train from 'city A' to 'city B' and then take a connecting train to 'city C' on the same day, then you would only use up one day of travel on your railpass."

    Hi Nan,

    Yes, that information is correct. If you were to take a day train from 'City A' to 'City B' and then take a return train back to 'City A' later in the same day, it would only use up one day of travel on a Eurail 'flexipass'. In contrast, if you were to take that return train to 'City A' on the next day, it would use up 2 days of travel on a Eurail 'flexipass'.

    Please note, this does not apply to the Renfe Spain Pass. It would only apply to 'Eurail Passes'.

    The Renfe Spain Pass is distinguishable from other passes in that it would be purchased for 'segments', as opposed to 'travel days'. A 'segment' refers to each individual train you take (i.e. '4 Segments in 1 Month'=4 different trains in 1 month).

    Therefore, a round-trip (using direct trains in each direction) would constitute 2 'segments' on a Renfe Spain Pass, no matter what day you make the return trip. In contrast, a round-trip done on the same day would constitute 1 'travel day' on a Eurail Spain Pass or any multiple country 'Eurail Pass' that includes Spain.

    The Renfe Spain Pass is also unique from other passes in that it is issued electronically (most other passes can only be issued as physical documents that would have to be shipped to you) and that reservation costs would be included in the cost of the pass itself (reservations are a supplementary cost to other rail passes).

    The general rule regarding these passes:

    When the number of travel segments equals the number of travel days, the Renfe Spain Pass would be more economical than the Eurail Spain Pass. When the number of travel segments exceeds the number of travel days, you would want to start looking at the Eurail Spain Pass, because it may end up being the less expensive option.
