Booking trains -- can't we just buy at the station?

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Barcelona for a week next month.

We're going to go up to Girona for two nights, by train. I'm thinking of just buying tickets either when we arrive in Barcelona or right at the station when we want to go.

Also, we'll be training up to Figueres from Girona on a day trip. Thinking of doing the same thing.

Perhaps just buying one-way tickets for flexibility as well.

Any compelling reason to buy in advance before we travel? Would we really save huge amounts of money? Same with one-way versus return. We travelled this way in the spring between Lisbon and Porto, and it was just fine. In one case, we just went to the station and bought tickets. Coming back we booked online the day before.
