Can't book Malaga-Madrid tickets even though my travel date is within 90 days. Can you help?

Dear Sir,

I am trying to book a train from Malaga to Madrid for the 10th of July 2015, which is within 90 days. Every time i try to book, i receive the following message.

"We're sorry, this trip is not eligible for reservations until a later date. If you'd like us to notify you when these trips can be reserved, just provide your email address below."

Can you please help me out?

Thanks and regards,

    Hi Nishant,

    Generally, trains in Spain can be booked once within 60 to 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 in Europe (including the national rail network of Spain). As a result of the Summer Schedule Changes, the national rail network of Spain has not enabled many of their trains to be booked for dates after June 13th, including trains on the requested route from Malaga to Madrid.

    I would recommend checking the route periodically on our site to see when it becomes available to be booked for your requested travel date. In the meantime, you can also use a date prior to June 13th to get an idea of the ticket costs and view schedules. We expect the schedules for trains operating after June 13th to be released some time by mid-May at the latest (but hopefully before then), at which point you would be able to purchase the tickets.

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

    • Hi,
      Its open. i can book now. however i have another issue, i have two people who are below 25 but they dont have the official valid Youth card (either any Spain Youth Card or ISIC), so even if they are below 25 do i need to buy the adult ticket for them as well?

      I'm sorry; however, we do not offer any discounts for student travel. There are certain trains that offer youth discounts (for passengers under the age of 26) but not any trains operating within Spain. Therefore, when you do a search for trains from Malaga to Madrid, you would not be quoted any different rates if you classify passengers as 'youths' than you would if you classify passengers as 'adults'.
