AVE Barcelona to Madrid

I am trying to buy AVE tickets from Barcelona to Madrid for July 1st but it says the system can't find tickets.

Are these tickets not available yet (60 days out from date needed)? How do I go about getting them?

    Hi Katie,

    Generally, trains from Barcelona to Madrid can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure. However, this is the time of year when the annual 'Summer Schedule Changes' occur with some of the rail networks and train operators in Europe. As a result of the 'Summer Schedule Changes', many trains operating after June 11th have not yet been posted in the international booking system, including the trains from Barcelona to Madrid.

    We expect the schedules for trains operating after June 11th to be released by the end of May (but hopefully before then), at which point you would be able to purchase the tickets. I recommend checking the route periodically in the meantime for your actual travel date. Once you see it display for the date you need, you will be able to place your order. For right now, you can use a date some time in in May in order to get an idea of the ticket costs and schedules for the route.
