Tickets will start at just €9 for adults, a price so low that Spanish transport minister, Oscar Puente accused the company of ‘flagrantly plummeting prices.’

The president of Ouigo Spain, Alain Krakovitch and the General Director, Helen Valenzuela, presented the plans in Madrid last week. 

Travellers can already buy tickets on the Ouigo website. 

It is hoped the new services will help to lower prices when demand is high, such as at Christmas and Easter.
