Good afternoon, I'm trying to figure out how to book between Lyon and Barcelona, ​​and Barcelona to Madrid. There are two time options. One, the reservation price is very low, but it says that I can only book in person at the station. This is the framing time as 2:32 pm. That's right? Can I only do it in person?

From France to Spain, you can reserve online if the train number starts with TGV. Try raileurope.com for reservations. It should cost €35

But if it starts with AVE, that means it’s operated by the Spanish company RENFE. You can only reserve at a ticket office in Spain(!) or by going to Lyon and buying it from RENFE staff on the platform or on the train. It will cost €10-20.

For Barcelona-Madrid, you can reserve online on the Eurail website. You can also do it at a ticket office in Spain.

starts with AVE. So I can't make an appointment online? What if there are no more vacancies when I'm there?

Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do. 

But I think the RENFE staff are helpful, and they will let you sit in the bar, or stand if necessary.
