You can travel with your pets on our AVE (high-speed), AVE (high-speed) International travelling between Spain and France and Larga Distancia (Long Distance) trains, with the following conditions:
Pets must always travel with their own pet ticket and do not take up a seat. You do not have to purchase a ticket for your pet if you are travelling with a Prémium ticket (this option is not available on AVE (high-speed) International trains). If your ticket is Básico (Basic) or Elige (Pick & Mix) ticket, you will only have to pay €10 more to take your pet with you in a carrier.
You also have the option of travelling with your dog without a carrier for €35 on trains that have allocated seats for dogs weighing up to 40 kg (see the list of trains).
On Avlo trains, you can travel with your pet provided that:
pets must always travel with their own pet ticket and do not take up a seat. It costs €10.
On Media Distancia (Mid-distance) and Avant (mid-distance high-speed) trains, you can travel with your pet as long as:
Your pet does not occupy a seat. The cost of the ticket is 25% of the price of the general fare.
Now, you can travel with your dog weighing up to 40 kg on select AVE (high-speed) trains on the Madrid-Barcelona, Madrid-Malaga, Madrid-Alicante, Madrid-Valencia, Madrid-Zaragoza and Madrid-Granada lines.
To do so, you must meet the requirements and arrive 40 minutes in advance at the Renfe Service Centre of the station to submit the declaration of responsibility, together with the pet's vaccination card and insurance policy. Remember that before you start your trip, you will be required to complete and sign the declaration of responsibility and adhere to the terms and conditions of service:
We will provide you with a travel kit (seat cover and mat that you must place on the floor of the seat next to the window), which you must pick up at least 40 minutes before boarding from the Service Centre at your departure station. Renfe and Nestlé Purina recommend, to ensure your pet's welfare during the trip, that you bring your own blanket and silent toy and avoid feeding them during the three hours prior to the trip to prevent sickness.
Dogs over 10 kg are not allowed on other AVE (high-speed), AVE (high-speed) International and Larga Distancia (Long Distance), Avant (mid-distance high-speed) and Media Distancia (Mid-distance) trains.
