By Train

Seville’s main train station is Santa Justa, located to the north of the city centre on Avenida Kansas City. It has shops (including a newsagent selling foreign press), restaurants and bars, several car parks, car hire offices, a taxi rank and bus stop. It is the third-busiest station in Spain, by passenger numbers.

One of the fastest and most comfortable ways to arrive in Seville is on the AVE , the high-speed long-distance train which has services arriving from Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga and Cordoba throughout the day. There are also trains arriving at Santa Justa from all over Andalucia, from the Cercanias (small local trains) which serve the hill-towns of the Sierra Norte, to long-distance trains from Jaen, Granada and Almeria, as well as medium-distance trains with spectacular routes such as the Ronda/El Chorro line.

From the train station, you can take a bus or taxi into the city centre.

By Bus

There are two bus stations in Seville City. For information about them and timetables see the Seville Bus Stations homepage.

Car hire

Many people prefer to have the flexibility and independence of hiring their own car while they are travelling around Andalucia, including Seville.

There are two main collection points for car rentals in Seville: the airport and the train station, depending on which is more convenient for your needs.

Airport

On arrival at the airport, you will see the offices for the car rental companies (Hertz, Avis, Budget, Crown-Auriga, Economy, Europcar, National Atesa) in the arrivals lounge. You collect your hire car from the car park opposite the terminal building. See offers on Airport page.

The nearest petrol station to the airport, so you can return your car refuelled to avoid paying extra charges, is on the A4 motorway on the north-bound carriageway, just after the junction with the SE30 Seville ringroad.

Train station

At Santa Justa train station, the offices of the hire car companies (including Hertz, Avis and National Atesa) are inside the parking area to the right of the station as you leave (there is a side exit next to the platforms).

The nearest petrol station, so you can refuel your hire car before returning it, is on Avenida Kansas City, just before you arrive at the station from the airport (heading south).
