Great value for money. Loved this pass lets you on to all the subway/metro trains along with the buses and found that it paid for itself over a couple of times. I bought the 3 day pass and collected it at the airport and was surprised that there was no extra fee to use the airport service as other city's I've found an extra fee.
The only way to travel in Madrid. The trains seem crowed at all times of the day and week.
This pass got us from the airport and back and all around Madrid at a very reasonable price. Madrid metro is also very easy to navigate
Practical and easy to use. Good value for money for those who really want to get around as much as possible in Madrid in a short time.

It was a convenient and cheaper way to move around the city
It proved very worthwhile to purchase the Madrid Travel Pass as my hotel was further from the city centre than I had anticipated. Collecting the pass was quite simple which meant that I could use it from the outset, saving me money. This meant that it also included metro airport taxes each way. Also, I had plenty of use from the pass throughout my trip taking the strain out of purchasing individual tickets. Well worth the money.
Madrid is a beautiful city which I would like to experience again in the future.
Great pass got it at train station at madrid was fabulous many thanks
Very useful and reasonably priced pass - we used the metro extensively which enabled us to see much more of this beautiful city in three days than we expected. We will definitely use this service on our next visit.
The travel pass is a good buy. Just got back, mid-March 2014. We used the Metro extensively every day. It is a good system, on time, clean, safe, no issues but it was occasionally crowded. The trains are also very good. There is no need for a car in Madrid. The Metro also links with the train system, so we took trips outside the city as well. See Toledo for sure. Beautiful. I would not go to Madrid without the travel pass. It saves time, money, and hassle.
Travel pass brilliant, definitely get your monies worth and makes all of Madrid easily accessible to anyone. Metro was great and easy to use.
We travelled back and forth across the Madrid metro for four days visiting every part of the city without having to think about the cost of tickets. Good value. Good underground system. Good city. Good tapas. Good wine. (Not so sure about all those Picassos!)
We thoroughly enjoyed using this ticket for five days. It made travel easy within the city, and was inexpensive.
Pass was easy to pick up - we were fortunate in that we landed in the airport terminal where you can pick up the pass. From there - pop on the subway. We did a lot of travelling through the Metro, so the pass was very efficient for us. In terms of cost effectiveness, it is probably a wash with buying Metro passes (maybe a little better in that the airport surcharge is covered); however, the convenience makes it worthwhile. We did not include Toledo - if you are going to Toledo, buying the 1 day pass is probably cheaper than paying separately for the train tickets (about 10 Euros each way).

The Metro was a great way to travel. It was very clean and safe.
Worthwhile to have because we need not to worry about the costs when we are lost
Another great pass. We used it so much on the metro definitely get this pass.
Travel Pass was wonderful allowing the flexibility of both bus and metro travel: It comes with buspass to Toledo, so use it! Busses in Madrid are very easy to use; simply get on anyone that is going in the direction you wish to travel (for longer rides you may wish to consult the line stop charts at every station). The only issue I had was I could not pick the pass up at the airport because I arrive later than the office was open (it closes at 7:00 PM).
This pass is invaluable. Buses and metro included. The maps it came with were very user friendly. Collecting it at the airport is best as the office is right by the metro station. Don't be tempted to get a bus straight from Terminal 1. Its a 10 minute walk to terminal 2/3 and the metro station.
So nice not to have to worry about tickets for travel, however, for some reason my ticket kept failing and I had to get it re-validated by the staff at the stations every time. A bit irritating but staff always on hand and very quick to sort out the problem. Word of warning, a young girl tried to get into my handbag on the metro - I foiled her attempt but pickpocketing is rife.
