Alaris

A guide to European Trains

Running on the Madrid - Valencia - Castello/Gandia route in Spain, these trains provide the quickest train link on this route and use a up to four tilting carriages for each train. This tilting technology is what allows for higher speeds on the existing track network. The journey time between Madrid and Valencia has been gradually reduced since the inaugeration of the Alaris trains in 1999 and is now just 3 hours 30 minutes.



The trains offer two classes of accommodation, a buffet car, video and audio entertainmet, telephone and baby-changing facilities amongst other amenities on board.
