I am planning to go to France and Spain between 12/13 and 1/2. I thought train tickets can be purchased starting 90 days in advance, but I can't seem to search for trains during my travel dates on Bahn.De or TVG-Europe.com. They only have trains through 12/12.
Am I doing anything wrong? I want to book the trains early to get cheap rates and also reserve the major train connections listed below.
Also, I would also appreciate if anyone has thoughts on which of the following trains are busy, and thus need to be booked sooner rather than later.
1.) Sun. 12/13 (morning): Paris to Caen, then Caen to Bayeux. (I'm guessing Caen to Bayuex does not need to be booked)
2.) Wed. 12/16 (2 pm): Bayeux to Colmar.
3.) Fri. 12/18 (night train, 9 pm): Colmar to Nimes / Arles
4.) Mon. 12/21 or Tue. 12/22: Avignon or Aix-en-Provence to Paris.
5.) Mon. 12/28 (night train): Paris to Barcelona.
The above trains are available in the first half of December, so I am guessing that they are available in the second half too. But I can't tell right now since the schedule does not seem to be out.
