Barcelona to Montpellier

Finding it difficult getting from Barcelona to Montpellier by train. Thought there was a daily (Catalan Train) that ran straight through. Not excited about loosing a day on the train. Any advice? We are traveling over the Easter holiday.

The trains have changed. A direct service between Barcelona and Montpellier is now provided by French TGV (high-speed trains).

You should be able to book up to three months ahead. However SNCF are hoping to increase the number of trains from the end of March and may hold off making them available until they can be sure they will be running.

Am I correct in thinking that there is now also one direct train a day between Madrid and Montpellier, which goes via Barcelona, and vice versa?

Correct. The daily Madrid - Marseille leaves Madrid Atocha at 15h40 and arrives in Montpellier at 21h21.

(And 8h37 > 14h13 for the return.)

Still having difficulty getting info for high speed train from Barcelona to Montpellier. No direct. Can't do second leg online. Any other suggestions? Willing to drive part way but don't want to take car across the border

I just booked a train to Aix (that stops in Montpellier) for March 24th (on voyages-sncf.com). So keep trying... :-)
