Hello Alice,

Thanks for your question.

For your journey you would have to travel as follows:

- Bordeaux to San Sebastian via IrunTGV Atlantique and Renfe trains.

- San Sebastian to Bilbao via Miranda de Ebro – Renfe trains.

Since you will be traveling in the month of April, and the bookings can only be done 3 months in advance, I would suggest you book your tickets closer to your date of travel.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to 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. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Hi - I am looking to do the same journey (Bordeaux to Bilbao) in 2017 - I have checked the instructions above - I can see a schedule for a train from Bordeaux to San Sebastian however when I check for a train from San Sebastian to Bilbao I get the "no schedules matched your request" message. Is the information still valid or is is there an alternative route?

Leora - I am looking to travel from Bordeaux to Bilbao on 29th September. I know I can't book until 90 days before but just trying to plan how we are going to get to Bilbao and whether we can travel by train or if we have to fly or get a bus.

Hello Bruce,

Thanks for your reply.

As there are no direct trains for your journey you will need to break and book as follows:

- Bordeux to San Sebastian via Irun - TGV and Regional train.

- San Sebastian to Miranda de Ebro - Alvia train.

- Miranda de Ebro to Bilbao - Alvia train.

The booking horizon for your sector is 2 months prior your train departure date hence you can book in July.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.
