Just when I thought I was doing everything right!
I have been watching the website every night waiting to book tickets on the overnight trenhotel from Barcelona to Granada on 26-6-2010, getting a little nervous as trains seemed to available up to June 12th and no further, but feeling okay since I had successfully used the system once already.
And then today I see that between last night and now the train has been posted but it says FULL TRAIN. No seats are available at at any level for any price! According to the website the same thing is true for the days on either side of our preferred travel date.
I know that I should just call the Renfe customer service number, and I will, and I know that we can fly to Granada from Barcelona for a lower cost, but what can I say? We are Americans, we are starved for a good long distance mass transit system, my kids are big Harry Potter fans (it's the train thing that is the linkage here, they know that Harry has nothing to do with Spain) and we really wanted to ride an overnight train.
Does anyone know if this is for real? What did I do wrong?
