I want to travel to Spain this summer. I took a Global Interail Pass.
I am unable to book seats on domestic lines:
madrid - barcelona
even on the smartphone application.
Maybe there is no need to make a reservation, but then does that mean I can travel free of charge and just with the pass?
Do you know of a help number that I can reach?
Thank you all for your help

Hi Anna! You cannot reserve these trains online. However, there are a few, slightly less convenient, options:
Edit: yes, ACPRail is also a great possibility, where you can make your reservations online. However, in my opinion they charge way too much. For example, for an Arco/Alvia/Avant, they charge €10, which is normally €6,50. When you have only one reservation that's okay, but with multiple reservations it adds up eventually.
Renfe (Spanish Rail) can be difficult to reserve.
Bestway at a International Ticket office, via Phone of Renfe (pick up within 72hrs) or via a Reservation service like Raileurope of ACP Rail
