Pet related rules (as of 23.07.2022)

Travel with your best friend!
 

On AVE and Larga Distancia (long distance high-speed) trains, you can travel with your pet as long as:

  • you have a small pet: dogs, cats, ferrets and birds (not poultry).
  • your pet weighs no more than 10 kg
  • your pet travels inside a cage or carrier at all times, which must measure a maximum of 60x35x35 cm
  • maximum 1 pet per person
  • your ticket allows pet travel

Pets must always travel with their own pet ticket and do not take up a seat. The pet ticket is free if you are traveling with a Premium ticket. If your ticket is Elige (Pick & Mix), you will only have to pay 10 euros more to take your pet with you. If you have a Básico (Basic) ticket, you can travel with your pet for an additional €20.


On Media Distancia (Mid-distance) and Avant (mid-distance high-speed) trains, 
you can travel with your pet as long as:

  • you have a small pet: dogs, cats, ferrets and birds (not poultry).
  • your pet weighs no more than 10 kg
  • your pet travels inside a cage or carrier at all times, which must measure a maximum of 60x35x35 cm
  • maximum 1 pet per person

Your pet does not occupy a seat. The cost of the ticket is 25% of the price of the general fare.


Please note that train+bus combined tickets do not accept pets.

Guide and assistance dogs always travel free and are not subject to weight or transportation limitations.

Before you travel, check the transport conditions and the necessary documentation, so that you and your pet enjoy a safe and comfortable trip.

Renfe also conducts a test for dog up to 40kg on long distance trains.
