Comfortable TGV trains speed from Barcelona to Barcelona in just 6 hrs 30 mins. Train frequency varies by season – peak summer frequencies are the highest with four trains per day.

Booking opens around four months in advance, and that’s when you’ll find the cheapest tickets. The lowest fares sell out quickly on this key cross-border route, so book early for the best deals. If you’re having trouble finding tickets, contact us and we’ll email you as soon as booking opens.
