Perpignan to Valencia ticket via Barcelona, User ID:

I am interested in booking a ticket from Perpignan to a train station in Valencia on 28 January 2015, preferably leaving between 12noon and 1:00 pm.

I managed to find a booking on Rail Europe for a 2nd class ticket at AU$112 for a youth. However, when I did the same search logged-in, mentioning that I have a Spain-France Rail Pass, it said "schedules were not found."

Furthermore, I did a separate search on the RENFE trains website and they quoted €56.00 (approx AU$81) and I believe they offer e-tickets too. Why is there such a discrepancy in prices ($81 vs $112)? I need to book a Perpignan-Valencia ticket soon and I would prefer to take advantage of unlimited travel on selected days within a 2-month period (for Rail Europe passes). What deal could Rail Europe do?

Thank you.

Hello Antonio,

Thanks for your question.

If you break your journey at Barcelona you will get a better fare.

As for the passholder fare you will have to do it locally as there is some technical glitch.

Hope this helps!!!

Hi Isha,

Thank you for this information. I can see the cheaper options for Barcelona to Valencia, which I will book soon.

For the Perpignan to Barcelona section, will I also have to do that without being able to use my log-in? Even when I break my journey, I still can't manage to book a Perpignan to Barcelona train ticket (via my log-in), only without logging in which is noticeably dearer. Is this also attributed to a technical glitch or what's the situation here?

Hello Antonio,

Thanks for your reply.

As I mentioned earlier if you are looking for passholder fares it won't be available as there is a technical glitch.

You would have to book them locally

But if you book for point to point tickets it is available.

Hope this helps!!!
