I am not having much luck figuring out the train websites. We would like to take the train from Malaga to Madrid on April 29, 2014. I think that the correct station names are "Malaga Maria Zambrano" to "Madrid Puerta de Atocha" but I am only 85% sure - there are other similar sounding names.
Using the www.renfe.com site, if I request a quote for today's date I see a tourist fare for $106.19USD but dates past next February aren't in the system yet. I backed up into February and tried a Tuesday just to see the fare but it says "not available", making me wonder if the train runs on Tuesdays.
I am struggling with the language differences that are present even in the English version of the web page plus the complexity of the task.
Does anyone have any guidance as to how to make the task easier for taking the train from Malaga to Madrid?
