Most of them are concentrated in the mornings, with a few spread out during the day and a couple towards the evening – you're looking at around 7 or 8 train trips available each day.

Barcelona to Valencia Train Time: Daily Departures

A more detailed look at the timetables and schedules for Barcelona to Valencia trains will show you that you can get a train every 20 minutes or so with the first 4 trains of the morning from 8:10 a.m. to around 10:30 a.m. After that, you'll find a midday train, and then there's a bit of a hiatus until the next one around mid-afternoon. After that, there are two more: one at around 4:00 p.m. and a final trip that you can catch around 6:00 p.m. This schedule is the same every day, except for Sundays, when one fewer train runs – the early morning train trip isn't made, so the first train of the day is after 9:00 a.m.

How long is the journey by train from Barcelona to Valencia?

This is a direct trip no matter which train ticket you book, and the times don't vary very broadly, depending on the time of day. All Barcelona to Valencia trains take between 2h40min and just over 3 hours. The differences in train journey duration are due to some going to Valencia Joaquín Sorolla station and others to Valencia-Estacio Del Nord. The only exception is the 10:00 a.m. train, which takes a more sedate 5 hours to make the trip, at standard rather than high speed, even though it's also a direct trip.

How to find cheap train tickets from Barcelona to Valencia?

The cheapest tickets available on this trip are to be had on the five-hour trip. Booking in advance is the best way to ensure that you get a ticket for this specific train, so be a bit flexible on the day on which you want to travel, if you can, in case it's fully booked on any particular day. If you don't have that sort of time to spare, then avoid the early morning and the evening trains, and rather travel at midday or in the mid-afternoon. There is only one train company that runs on this line and you don't have the ability to choose between different providers, so besides choosing your train carefully, keep your eyes open for special offers on holidays. If you're a discount cardholder or hold a season membership ticket, then those fee reductions can be applied to further reduce the cost of the trip.
