Alternatives to Renfe for Spanish Rail Tickets

Jump to last reply

I know I am not the first one to have these problems, but I simply could not get Renfe to process my payment correctly, and I tried multiple cards. Now, it is saying all of the seats are unvailable for P+ (Promo +) pricing, when almost all seats on the train were available 3 hours ago and yesterday. Maddening! Anyway, I am also trying Petrabax as an alternative, but it only has P, which offers no seat selection. We are allowing ourselves about 3 hours to land in Madrid and catch the train. This will be March 16. We have 4 people, including two children (9 and 14). Has anyone else experienced any trouble not having a seat assignment (we are going Madrid to Cordoba at around 4:30 pm on a Saturday via AVE)? Are there any other good sites I should consider for making the purchase that offer good discounts?
