Seating Options

Can a train be sleek and welcoming at the same time? That’s the AVE. Contemporary design paired with everything to make you feel comfortable as you whisk throughout Spain. On-board in the Club Class, there is the feel of elegant simplicity with room to spare. Head room. Leg room. Even elbow room. You’ll find video & audio services at every seat, as well as power outlets to help you recharge or stay charged. There are complimentary newspapers and a drink to welcome you, accompanied by large picture windows that let you soak it all in. All in a first class dedicated car, dedicated to your contentment.

Meals & Concessions

With Club Class tickets, you’ll find easy to purchase snacks and drinks on board in the bar-buffet car or via on-board trolley service. Take advantage of your pop-up table, like those offered by the airlines. But that’s where the airline comparisons end. Here, you have room to move, get up as you please, even enjoy your own electronics whenever you like. There’s room to stretch after you eat, too. But perhaps best of all is the delightful dessert of actually speeding through Spain, scenic views all along the way. You’ll see they’re perfect dining companions.
