Train travel from Santiago to Madrid

New Original Camino Gear Designed Especially with The Modern Peregrino In Mind!

Twice a day at 1355 hrs and 2233 hrs, the last one being TrenHotel with sleeping accommodations.

Strongly recommend reservations.

All aboard!
There are a few buses as well.. and Ryanair flies twice a day... some times they are cheaper than the bus.. I would get a ticket ahead of time if you want to travel in June, July, or August... otherwise I think you should be ok...

Greetings from Santiago,
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

If you plan to return on the Hotel Tren (thereby saving a night's accommodation) I would definitely book ahead. Many people were disappointed - and stuck in Santiago a couple of years ago, when they couldn't get on the train for three days. (That was in mid-June).

I should have added to my posting; if the train is full or you wish to book too far in advance then you will not be able to book on line either. Maybe that is why you are not seeing any way of purchasing tickets.
