  1. The journey by train from Madrid to Cáceres is a reminder that not all Spanish rail journeys are on high-speed lines. This is a classic old-style route, served by trains that are less modern but still perfectly comfortable. Sit back and enjoy the passing scenery on this run through rural Spain which takes 3 hrs 30 mins.

    The trains that ply the route are classed as either Intercity or Regional Express services (and there's also a once-weekly Media Distancia service). In terms of travel time, price and quality of the train, there's not much difference between these train types. To find the full range of trains serving this route, specify 'Madrid Atocha Cercanías' as your starting station in the Spanish capital.

    Bookings for this route normally open two months prior to travel, though the Spanish rail operator often releases tickets in batches - sometimes as early as 120 days in advance. However, this is a route on which you won't find cheap tickets in advance since the fare on any given train is fixed.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
