We have travelled in Spain by train / AVE lots of times before (especially between 2014 and 2017) and we always made our reservations via a Dutch company specialized in international train travel, called Treinreiswinkel.nl. In the past, they were very customer friendly, but now (having changed to Treinreiswinkel / Happyrail) it’s quite the opposite…
In fact they promised to make our reservations as always (5 in total, so no huge number), but as soon as we bought our Interrail passes from them, they simply said ‘thank you very much’ and left us in the cold time after time, simply refusing to help us any further. So now, months later and with our planned trip approaching quickly (mid august), we still have NO reservations whatsoever…
So we would really like to make our own reservations online at Renfe.com, but even that seems impossible… It’s 2022, so this can’t be right, can it?? Are we overlooking something? Or is it really impossible to make RENFE / AVE reservations for Interrail/Eurail travellers online?
We will take our little boy (5 years old) with us for the first time and we can’t afford any sold out RENFE / AVE seats in our planned trip, so any kind advice would be MORE than welcome! At least I really hope this community is more active & friendly than ‘Happyrail’ (nothing to be ‘happy’ about) :)
Thanks a lot, any help would REALLY be appreciated! Ruben
