Hello, I have been trying to use your site to find out train times and costs for getting from Barcelona to Bayonne, and Barcelona to Pamplona respectively but it keeps coming up with an error (cannot find trains for your itinerary) - why is this? cheers Lou H

  • Hi Lou,

    In order to get from Barcelona to Bayonne, it will require 1-2 changes of trains. In order to book those, you would need to book each segment individually. You can travel from Barcelona to Irun or Hendaye, and then from Hendaye to Bayonne. These trains can be booked 30-60 days prior to train departure.

    As for traveling from Barcelona to Pamplona, most of those trains are now loaded, however, if traveling during Running of the Bulls, the trains are getting pretty full and space is limited. Some dates and trains may already be sold out.

    If you are still having issues booking these trains, please contact us at 800-438-7245 and one of our Travel Consultants will be able to assist you further.

    Thank you,
    Jen

  • Hi Jen, many thanks for your response. I had tried searching for Barcelona-Hendaye trains before but it still came up with the message "Schedules were not found. For longer journeys (more than 2 connections) it is sometimes necessary to break it down. Please check our interactive map to assist you. If you have checked your travel dates and tried dividing your itinerary no reservations may be available for that route or trains may be sold out. "

    However I've now worked out that it was because I was trying to find trains for a date too far ahead (27 August) - when I changed the date to 6 August the search worked.

    So that other people don't make the same mistake as me, it might be useful to change the error message triggered when people put in a date too far into the future, to let them know that they need to put an earlier date in, otherwise its impossible to work out why it hasn't returned a result.

    thanks
    cheers
    Lou

    Hi Lou,

    You have contacted the North American ticket supplier for the various national rail networks of Europe. We are generally not able to sell to residents of countries outside of North America, due to local restrictions. If you are a resident of Australia, you would place your order with an affiliated agency there. Their website is http://www.raileurope.com.au/.
