Madrid Puerta De Atocha to Malaga Maria Zambrano

Hi we have tickets booked on the Eurail site for the above trip for 9 th June at 11.30 and the train number is AVE2112, it is not showing on the site now but it shows one at 12.10 with the same train number have they just adjusted the leaving time, also can we only reserve seats at a station or can we do it online or over the phone?

Here are the known ways to make Spanish seat reservations :

Unfortunately RENFE doesn't offer the possibility to book online anymore (even through

The 12:10 AVE (schedule per RENFE) is pretty full : 10 seats left. However the 13:00 AVE has 100 seats left so there's an easy solution if the first one ends up being full.

You can book all seat reservations as soon as you arrive in Spain, at any train station.

Btw adding a train to the app doesn't guarantee you a seat and it's best not to activate a travel day in advance (in case something goes wrong). When the day has started, it cannot be cancelled.

Thanks for the answer Thibcabe
