hi, could you please help me where can i book a seat for this overnight train? i couldn't find a proper webpage about the prices and booking, and actually anywhere else i found that there are no seats on this train only couchettes or cabins, are you sure that there are seats too? since i will be travelling with my boyfriend i wouldn't want to be separated from him and sleep in a couchette with strangers and also it's a little expensive so it would be really important for us to know whether there are seats or not. thanks a lot 🙂

There are reclining seats available, like we've listed it. 🙂
Apart from agencies who will charge you a booking fee (probably at least as much as the actual reservation would cost) I dont know any online possiblity to get a reservation. You will have to get it at a railway station - no problem to do so in Spain or Portugal...but it is possible in other bigger railway stations in mainland Europe as well.

I've been looking everywhere but cannot find this info:
Can I travel on nighttrains San sebastian - Coimbra (Irun - Lisbon) and Lisbon - Madrid with Portugal OneCountry pass?
Thanks for the answer!

As far as I know it is possible to use only Lusitania (Lisboa - Madrid) with InterRail One Country Passes for Portugal or Spain but you will have to pay more for the reservation than with a Global Pass:
4 bed sleeper 38,80€
For Surex I did not find a special tariff for One Country Passes so I believe you will need to get an extra ticket for the Spanish part.
