    Hi Doug,

    A connection from Santiago de Compostela to Salamanca would involve changing trains at least once along the way in Medina del Campo. Otherwise, the connection would involve two train changes along the way, once in either Orense or Palencia and then once in Avila.

    That being said, the national rail network of Spain has not yet loaded some of these trains into the international booking system, making it so that tickets are not able to be booked for these routes, and we don't have prices. Even a more major route, such as the one from Salamanca to Madrid (where there are direct trains) only appears to be loaded up until June 20th. After that, even these trains are able to be booked. Trains from Santiago de Compostela to Orense (as part of a connection from Santiago de Compostela to Salamanca) also only appear to be loaded up until June 20th. The other trains; however, would currently not be able to be booked for any date.

    As such, the schedules for these trains would not display on our website. We hope the rail network of Spain enables tickets for these routes to be purchased at some point within the next couple weeks. In the meantime, you can call us at 1-800-622-8600 if you wish to get an idea of any specific schedules. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Generally, trains in Spain are able to be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure.

      Hi Lesley,

      Generally, trains operating within Spain can be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure. While that does appear to be the case for trains along the requested route, trains from Salamanca to Medina del Campo are just not able to be booked on our website at this time. To purchase tickets and check ticket costs for this part of a connection from Salamanca to Santiago de Compostela, you would call us at 1-800-622-8600.

      Connecting trains from Medina del Campo to Santiago de Compostela are able to be booked on our website currently for dates in August. Therefore, you can click on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage to check the ticket costs for this segment of the connection in the meantime.
