BUDGET: Renfe president, Isaías Táboas, and the Minister of Public Works, José Luís Ábalos, present the Avlo train

RESIDENTS of Andalucia will have to wait more than a year before they can make use of the new low-cost high-speed trains, announced last month.  

The ALVO trains won’t run in Andalucia until 2021, while residents in other parts of Spain get to travel on the trains from next year.  

The budget AVE that Renfe launches in April 2020 will offer people in Barcelona and Madrid tickets between the two cities for as little at 10 euros. 

SLOW BOAT: Residents of Sevilla won’t have access to the trains until 2021

Tickets for children under 14 years will be on offer from 5 euros.  

While people in Madrid and the Catalan capital will be able to purchase the discounted tickets from the end of January, those living in Malaga and Sevilla will have to be patient.  

The AVLO trains will only begin running on the AVE line that connects Madrid to Sevilla and Malaga from 2021.  

Renfe expects one million travellers per year to ride on the budget trains for the first two years they are in operation.  

Most of these passengers are expected to be people who normally don’t take the train due to costs, such as families or young people.
