We're 4 seniors arriving at Barajas in the morning on April 15. We'll need tickets for the AVE from Atocha to Malaga - didn't buy them in advance online in case plane is delayed, etc. Are we likely to be able to book them at Barajas T4 or Atocha on a Friday and leave for Malaga without a long wait?

well advance booking is always advice but if not, you can buy at the ticket counter at the airport T4 or Atocha as well seats available basis.
cheers

When you get to the ticket office you need to get a number for service. There are two machines. One for people traveling that day. The other for people traveling on a future day. You wait for your number and then go to the window assigned.

Thank you pedmar and Arturo. We arrived at T1 Barajas about 8:15 and took the shuttle to T4. We found T4 confusing but located the Renfe Office and were able to buy 4 Tarjetas Doradas and 4 tickets to Malaga on the 11:35 AVE from Atocha (no problem despite it being a Friday - guess we were early enough). Took the Metro to Atocha with plenty of time to spare. While in Spain we also traveled on the Media Distancia from Malaga to Sevilla and the AVE from Sevilla to Madrid. We would highly recommend RENFE to anyone traveling in Spain.

thanks for the return, hope many read you here and elsewhere. Many times had to defend RENFE because folks just don't read well.

Glad the trip came out ok, and I will be by it end of May on T4 too ::)
