What is the difference in comfort between RENFE Economy & Premier on trains from Seville to Barcelona?

Do both recline? Amount of legroom in each? View? Side to side room? Width? Thank you

  • There is no such description as Economy and Premier by the national rail company (RENFE). Presumably you are looking at an agency or this agency's descriptions. Without knowing what train type or journey you are planning to take it is not possible to understand how it will equate. You may want to refer to www,renfe.com

  • I am looking at RailEurope website for Seville Spain to Barcelona. Those are the two classes listed on that site. Does that help.

    Thank you for your question, John.

    The AVE high-speed trains from Seville to Barcelona do offer 2 different levels of 1st class, 'Turista Plus' and 'Preferente'. The actual seats/accommodations for 'Turista Plus' and 'Preferente' are the same, so there would be no difference in comfort. Other than cost, the only difference between these two fares would involve additional services. I'm sorry, however, we do not have specific dimensions for the seats or leg-room, but these seats do recline.

    When you pull up the results of a search from Seville to Barcelona on our site, the Turista Plus fares would be the ones found under the 'Comfort' heading and the Preferente fares would be the ones found under the 'Premier' heading.

    To see the name of a fare and information about any services that are offered, you would click the 'View' button (listed with the costs for each departure that displays). After clicking 'View' for a fare, you would refer to where it says 'Ticket Flexibility' and click 'Read More' under the 'Fully Flexible' option that displays. Under the 'Comfort' heading, the Turista Plus fares may be labeled as 'Spanish Long Distance Trains Adult Preferente/Tourist Plus'. You can disregard the word 'Preferente' here, as you would actually only be able to get Preferente tickets if you select the option under the 'Premier' heading for this train.
