Your Own Car
Santa Justa train station is located in one of the main avenues of the city center so it’s pretty easy to find it.
You have three parkings. One of them is an express parking, just for short stays and it’s located in front of the main entrance. It’s expensive though. The other two are located at each side of the main building. They always have a lot of free spots.
If you are considering renting a car you’ll find a bunch of car rental offices at the Sevilla Santa Justa train station. However, my favorite choice to get the best cheap car rental rates is to book your rental car from home before setting a foot in Seville.
The cabs are located in front of the main entrance. You’ll have to pay a surcharge for travelling from the train station and an extra fee for each piece of luggage.
Seville receives a lot of foreigners every year and taxi drivers know it. They generally have a very bad reputation and I can tell so. They have tried to scam me more than once the minute they realize that I’m not from Seville (I have a different accent).
Please, make sure you know the exact address you are going to. Do some research in advance and spend some time in front of a map to get an idea of your route. If you can, provide some directions to the driver. At the end of the trip check the final fare and the change you receive!
I definitely NOT recommend taking a cab. Unless you are in a hurry or you have no other means of transport, avoid taking a taxi!
The Cercanias is an intercity train link offered by Renfe. Spain and especially big cities are very well connected. In the case of Seville, it operates in 25 stations communicating several towns outside the city.
