AVE, iryo, Renfe and Alvia trains from Madrid to Seville

You can travel from Madrid to Seville on AVE, iryo, Renfe and Alvia trains. When you search for times and tickets, we might also show you some other options with multiple connections or operators if they’re available.

AVE is Renfe's flagship high-speed service, with trains capable of reaching up to 193 mph (310 km/h). It’s one of the fastest trains in Europe and connects the main cities of Spain. Most AVE trains offer two comfort classes – Estándard (Standard Class) and Confort (First Class equivalent, with 1-1 configuration, ultra-wide seats, gourmet food and drink and lounge access). All AVE trains have air conditioning, power sockets, free WiFi and a buffet carriage serving a selection of food and drinks. There are three fares for AVE services: the cheapest but least flexible Básico fare, the Elige fare (slightly pricier but more flexible), and the Premium fare for seats in Confort Class.

Operating since the end of 2022, iryo is a new high-speed train company in Spain. It’s a consortium between the Spanish airline Air Norstrum and the train company Trenitalia, one of the greatest leaders in European rail transport. The first private Spanish high-speed company to operate, iryo runs high-speed services on the Madrid – Zaragoza – Barcelona route and connects Madrid – Cuenca – Valencia/Alicante and Madrid – Cordoba – Seville/Malaga. They are doing this all with a fleet of ETR1000 model trains that offer the highest level of comfort in Spain, with a combination of advanced propulsion and highest quality onboard services, including WiFi connection and catering service. 98% of the parts of the trains are 100% recyclable, making this trip sustainable as well!

Renfe is the national train operator in Spain. It operates trains on the longest high-speed railway network in Europe, and the second-longest in the world. The country's major cities are linked up by the high-speed AVE and Avlo trains, while other long-distance routes are served by Altaria, Talgo, Alvia and Euromed trains. Renfe also operates cross-border services into neighbouring Portugal and France. Depending on which service you are travelling on, you'll usually find two classes on Renfe trains - Estándard (Standard Class) and Confort (First Class). Fare types range from the cheapest (but least flexible) Básico fare, to the more flexible Elige fares, to the Premium fare for seats in Confort carriages.

Renfe's Alvia services combine high-speed tracks with lower speed sections, reaching speeds of up to 155 mph (250 km/h) on international lines and 125 mph (200 km/h) on conventional lines. These trains connect the cities of Madrid, Barcelona and Alicante with the other main Spanish cities. Alvia offers two types of classes – Turista (Second Class) and Preferente (First Class). The latter has wider seats, carriages with fewer seats, offers complimentary food and drinks, free newspapers, and access to parking and Club meeting rooms.

Traveling from Madrid to Seville with an AVE train

AVE trains are the quickest way to travel between Madrid and Seville – the capitals of Spain and Andalusia. Inaugurated in 1992, it was the first high-speed train route operated by Renfe.

More than 20 AVE trains connect Madrid to Seville every day, covering more than 240 miles in less than 3 hours. These trains can reach speeds of up to 186mph – traveling from Madrid to Seville by train has never been faster!

Boarding my train from Madrid Atocha station

The high-speed AVE train departs from Madrid Atocha train station. Located in the south of the Spanish capital, the station is divided into two different areas, one served by Renfe Cercanías (commuter trains) and the other by medium and long-distance trains. AVE trains depart from the second area, opposite the taxi rank and parking.

I bought a Básico ticket to travel in Standard Class (Estándar in Spanish) and took the AVE train from Madrid to Seville at 11:00 am from platform 8. I had to go through security checks to gain access to the platforms.

After the security checks, you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, a bookshop, a couple of electronics shops, a jewelry shop, and a big waiting area where you can sit and relax whilst you wait for your train.

My train journey from Madrid to Seville

When traveling in Standard Class, you’ll find two seats on each side of the aisle and at least two big tables with four seats per car, perfect when traveling with family or friends. If you want to enjoy the views without feeling dizzy like me, pick a forward-facing window seat.

The seats are quite comfortable – each one reclines, has a footrest, a small table to work or eat on and two European power outlets to charge your electronic devices.

You’ll also be able to connect to the onboard WiFi for free, as well as use the onboard entertainment portal called PlayRenfe – you can watch live sports, films, TV shows and more, so you won’t feel bored at all during your journey! You’ll simply need to connect to the WiFi to access the portal or download the PlayRenfe app on your mobile.

Arriving in Seville

Overall, the train journey from Madrid to Seville went pretty smoothly – we only stopped once (in Cordoba), the temperature was perfect (thanks air-conditioning!) and the staff came several times to offer us snacks and drinks to buy.

If you want to stretch your legs and have a short walk, you can also go to one of the restaurant cars you can find on all AVE trains.

I arrived at Sevilla-Santa Justa train station at 1:21 pm, 9 minutes before the scheduled time.

Jaime, a former Trainline employee, chose to share their experience of the journey between Madrid and Seville.
