Renfe luggage security 

Spanish rail security often scan your luggage before boarding the train, especially if you are travelling through a major rail terminal. Please be aware that any dangerous or prohibited items may be confiscated. The official advice from Renfe states:

  • "Luggage is considered to be any hand-carried item that contains clothing and articles for personal or professional use belonging to the passenger which does not violate the security provisions established in laws and regulations or represent a hazard or nuisance to other passengers."
