I am trying to book tickets Madrid to Algeciras 5 June return 7 June. I get an error message saying that the operator is unable to confirm and to select another fare or train. How can I make the booking?

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for your question.

Since there are no direct trains plying between the cites, book and travel as follows:

- Madrid to CordobaAVE train.

- Cordoba to Antequera – AVE train.

- Antequera to Algeciras – Renfe train.

I would suggest you to purchase a Spain Pass.

This pass will give you extensive travel on all national and regional trains within Spain.

Just be advised that seat reservations would be mandatory for all High-Speed, Night, Scenic and Border Crossing trains. But, you will avail pass holder/discounted fares for these journeys with the pass.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "Seat Reservations“ & feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy.

Hope this helps!!!
