Hello Everyone, I am trying to book a train BCN to Geneva, Switzerland 

AVI 9737

AVE International

at 8:22-16:35. Message says 

“Not available from

This seat reservation can’t be booked on our website. Check 'More information' for other ways to book.”

I want to Barcelona Santa and they were no help in booking the ticket. Who should I go to a Sants or what should I do?

This train is only available at RENFE ticket counters. Staff there is able to sell reservations for 10€.

I'd go there again (or at Franca station instead) and hope to find someone better informed. Insist that it is possible to book the AVI to Lyon, it's their own train.

Of course if the train is sold out, that's not possible. What is your travel date ?

@thibcabe okay thank you, I will do that. I was at the Self Service counters and tried and then Lyon didn’t come up

Ah yes, then you'll probably have to queue there for quite some time…

Really annoying that it is not available online for passholders ! At least the train is back in service as it's the most convenient option to get to Switzerland. :)
