Can't find tickets from Barcelona to Valencia & Valencia to Malaga for advance purchase.

We wish to purchase rail tickets in advance from Barcelona to Valencia on Sept. 18, 2015 and Valencia to Malaga on Sept. 26, 2015 but the Rail Europe site shows "at this time, can't find tickets or schedules for this trip". When will advance purchase of these trips become available?

    Hi Al.

    With regard to the route between Barcelona and Valencia, the national rail network of Spain has not yet enabled ticket purchases for dates beyond September 6th. Until they do so, these particular trains are not able to be booked from anywhere outside of Europe. We hope the national rail network of Spain makes these tickets available very soon, hopefully within the next few weeks. It is usually the case that trains in Spain can be booked once within 60 or 90 days of an intended date of departure.

    I would recommend checking this route periodically on our site until you see that it is able to be booked. In the meantime, you can use a date some time prior to September 6th in order to get an idea of the ticket costs and schedules for the route.

    Trains from Barcelona to Valencia are 'EuroMed' trains.

    A connection from Valencia to Malaga would take about 4 to 5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Madrid en route. Tickets for these trains are currently able to be purchased for travel on September 26th, you would just have to break up your search once in Madrid. Therefore, you would purchase the tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the route by doing one search for trains from Valencia to Madrid and then another search for connecting trains from Madrid to Malaga.

    Trains from Valencia to Madrid and Madrid to Malaga are high-speed 'AVE' trains.
