Passengers can bring up to 2 large pieces of luggage and 1 piece of hand luggage. The total weight for all three pieces of luggage must not exceed 20kg. Each piece of luggage should not be larger than 250cm.
Bicycles are not allowed on AVE trains, even in a bike bag. If you need to travel with your bicycle, you will have to take an alternative train such as a night train, regular or regional trains that do carry bikes.
If you’re traveling with a pet, keep in mind that you will need a reservation for your pet. Reservations for animals must be made locally, prior to travel. You can carry small animals in a container no larger than 60x35x35cm. The container cannot exceed 6kg in weight.
AVE trains include space and facilities for travelers with reduced mobility and special needs. Wheelchairs with maximum dimensions of 70cm wide, 130 cm long and 140 cm tall are allowed on board. Larger chairs are only accepted if they can be folded and the passenger is able to use a regular seat on the train. Ramps are available on AVE trains in order to help passengers to board and to get off the train. If you require assistance for traveling on the train, it is advisable to arrive to the train station at least half an hour prior to departure.
