Transportation in Spain

You might have already planned to travel Spain  and you’re probably excited to use your days of travel time after Summer Camp ends.

Whatever you’re travelling alone or with a group, you’ll need to know the best ways to travel Spain on a budget. And, if you’re looking for tips and tricks to keep travel costs down, we’ve got you covered!

BlablaCar

BlaBlaCar is probably our prefered means of transport to travel on a budget in Spain and it’s an amazing innovation aimed at solving boring travel; fuel expenses; trip cost; convenience of travel; inadequacy in mass transport & many more.

BlaBlaCar is where the car owner offers to share his city-city ride with anyone who wants to join for a price. The app connects the car owner (one who offers the ride) with the co-traveller (one who joins the ride) for a nominal fee. The owner mentions few details (about self; car; driving type; price; locations; schedules; availability of seats etc).

To use it is very easy and we recommend it as you can have great experiences about different people you meet.

Travel Spain by Train

Renfe is a good way to travel through Spain on a economic budget, we always try to use it if we find a good offer as is very safe, comfortable and fast.

We highly recommend (in case that you pick trains to move around Spain) the Renfe Spain Pass. This pass is only valid for people with residence outside of Spain and is issued only upon presentation of the passport proving that you’re foreigner.

You can choose passes of 4,6,8 or 10 trips to use in one month and you’ll find a wide range of travelling cities options:

Uber in cities  

Currently you can request an Uber car in 21 cities in Spain. By clicking on the link below, you’ll find car types, the fare rates, promotion codes and insights about the popular city spots. Uber in Spain is cheaper than taxis and in our way to see, more efficient and easier to use it, so if you are in Madrid, Sevilla, Granada or Alicante we encourage you to take one.
