You can carry up to 3 pieces of hand luggage onto the train, provided that the sum of the three does not exceed 25 kg or 290 cm.

The maximum dimensions allowed are 85x55x35 cm. (height-width-depth).

If travelling on the AVE International high-speed train between Spain and France, the same terms and conditions apply to hand luggage, except that luggage tagging is mandatory

Please bear in mind that the luggage policy is stricter on Avlo trains. Read the information.


Types of hand luggage

  • Baby seats and pushchairs must always be folded away.

In addition,

  • Musical instruments, carried in their case, may not be bigger than 30 x 120 x 38 cm. (width-length-depth).
  • All bicycles and scooters folded in a cover are considered hand luggage as long as their dimensions do not add up to more than 180 cm between the three elements, and therefore will be accepted free of charge on all regular Renfe Viajeros (Renfe Passengers) services. The transport policy for unfolded bicycles and scooters depends on the type of train you are travelling on. Read all information about this.
