When does the booking start for August travel in Spain (Barcelona - Madrid)

how do I book a ticket? I am trying to book 4 adult tickets from Barcelona to Madrid - return trip - 1st August from Barcelona and 4th August from Madrid, but not able to do it. When tried, the website says "it is too early to book the ticket.." When does the booking / purchasing open for August travel?

thank you

    Hi Vaishali,

    Typically, trains in Spain can be reserved within 60-90 days of an intended departure date. However, this time of year is when the annual 'Summer Schedule Change' occurs with some of the rail networks in Europe (including the national rail network of Spain), which delays the process a little bit. We expect schedules for August dates to start coming in over the course of the next month. I would recommend checking your routes periodically during that time. You would check schedules and purchase tickets from Barcelona to Madrid (and return) by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Trains between Barcelona and Madrid are high-speed AVE trains.
