Train from Madrid to Seville this Saturday! HELP

Hi all,

I planned a last minute trip to Spain yesterday! I am in Madrid and would like to get to Seville on Saturday, I checked the website and it says there are no tickets to purchase from Madrid to Seville left! ( Saturday the 9th) in 2 days! Do you think I should walk to the train station tomorrow in the am to talk to someone, would there be any chance of additional tickets, or should I buy a one way to cordoba, then find a train departing within the hour and do a second one way from cordoba to Seville?? Would that work?? If so I will buy them now, I don't want to risk that option also selling out, the I would have to drive!! Meeting someone so I have to get there Saturday!, One day I will learn not to procrastinate! Thanks so much for ideas, thoughts etc???

Thank you all so much! It must have been severe jet lag or my iPad just does not like the sight, walking there now to get my tickets. You all are life savers! Thanks!

On anther note, going to rent a car in Seville later in the week and keep it for a few days, should I return it to Seville and train back to Madrid to fly home, return it in Malaga, Madrid airport, or someone else down south that would be easiest?? Pretty open plan as of now, just Seville for the next 3 days, then 3 more days to use in the white villages area... Thanks again!!!!

it is always cheaper to return it to the same point that you took it (for example Seville train station is a good place)

Both seville and malaga are well connected by AVE train to madrid (2h30m) so either way it should work. I wouldn't drive to madrid because it is a 6h drive.

I would return the rental car at the last town you stay in, perhaps Malaga? Then take the train back to Madrid.
