Renfe stands for “Red Nacional de los Ferrocarriles Españoles”, which is translated as “National Network of Spanish Railways”. It is in fact, as the name suggests, the state-owned train company that operates in Spain. It is a popular train company, used by many Spanish nationals and foreigners every day.
Renfe baggage allowance policy states that each passenger can bring up to three pieces of luggage with them. These can include briefcases, purses, laptop bags, suitcases, trolley-bags and cases. All of the bags should weight up to 25kg and not exceed 290 cm in total. The largest of them all should have these dimensions: 85 x 55 x 35 cm (or smaller). The most important factor is that each passenger can carry their own bags and that they can find an appropriate place to store them. It goes without saying that unlicensed firearms, sharp objects, toxic substances and explosives are not allowed on board.
Spanish Railway’s baggage policy:
Maybe you are going to spend a semester in Salamanca. Or maybe you found a new job in Madrid. Or it could be that you purchased a ticket to Barcelona, with no return date, to find some meaning in your life. We know that probably you need more than 3 pieces of luggage to fit all your belongings and that they can weight over 25 kg. It is normal to wonder whether you can bring some extra items on board, even if you have to pay for them. Spanish Railway’s baggage policy does not include the possibility of purchasing extra baggage allowance. That is why we would recommend you find another solution to transport some –if not all- of your items.
Eurosender to the rescue!
Carrying your heavy baggage from train station to train station can be exhausting. In some cases, you might not even be able to bring all your items on board, due to train baggage restrictions. In this case, shipping services can be the only option. Afraid of how much a service like this can cost? Don’t be! Eurosender can help you find the most affordable way to ship your items to any destination in Europe.
Whether you are planning a trip to explore the Basque Country or you are moving to one of Spain’s many beautiful cities, bringing your bike with you can be very helpful. It is the cheapest way to move around, plus it is eco-friendly and healthy.
Renfe baggage allowance policy states that folded or disassembled bikes are allowed on board, as long as they are stored inside a bag and they are up to 180 cm. In this case, the bikes will be considered to be part of your baggage and you will only be able to bring two more pieces of luggage. In certain trains, placing the bike in a special bag or a case is not always necessary. However, we recommend contacting the company and learn on which routes you can bring a fully assembled bike.

According to Renfe pet policy, small animals are permitted on trains, as long as they do not create any problems for the other passengers. Small dogs, cats, ferrets and birds should be kept in a pet container which does not exceed the dimensions of 60 x 35 x 35 cm. Also, the pet itself should not weight more than 10 kg. The owners of the animals should carry all documentation concerning their pet’s health condition and should make sure to keep the container clean during the trip. Also, it is worth noting that, although on certain trains, pets travel for free, in others, a 25% reduced ticket should be purchased. In this case, you should check the rules that apply to the specific train you are about to book a ticket for.
