There are direct trains between Madrid–Paris and Madrid–Lisbon, as well as Barcelona–Paris, Barcelona– Zürich or Milan and Barcelona–Geneva. These services are called Estrella, Talgo or Train-Hotel. On other international services to and from Spain, a change of train is necessary. However, work on the AVE route between Madrid and Barcelona has been completed in february 2008 after which the French border connection is expected to be fully operational by 2010 and it will be possible to connect with the French TGV and the rest of the high-velocity routes in Europe.

The main motorways to Spain from France are via Bordeaux or Toulouse to San Sebastian and via Marseille or Toulouse to Barcelona and the Mediterranean coast.
