Trains in Spain

For everything you need to know about seeing Spain by train click here

The state-run RENFE provide a good service with fares that are among the cheapest in Europe. Democracy has made trains run on time but RENFE still has a way to go. This is mainly due to the fact that the train system is a complex one. There are many varieties of train including the ferrobus which stop at almost every station. For long journeys, the TALGO is a good option. Fast, comfortable and efficient. TALGO and Inter-city trains have buffet and bar services onboard. Train tickets can be purchased in advance from main stations, ticket agents and authorised travel agents.  See full feature on trains here

Metro services in Spain
In some of the major cities, an underground Metro system operates with great success and avoids the traffic congestion above ground. At peak times they can become overcrowded and uncomfortable. There is no smoking allowed on board. See a plan of Barcelona Metro here

Car hire in Spain
Car hire companies are plentiful in Spain, particularly around coastal areas. They can become heavily booked in the holiday periods. Competition is fierce and price cutting out of season is commonplace. Unlimited public liability insurance is included in the price. To hire a car you wll need your passport and a full driving licence. Most European driving licences are now accepted in Spain. Many companies have a minimum age of 21 or 25 to hire a car. Make sure you use a reputable company and make sure you read the small print on your hire agreement. Petrol is not usually included nor any fines you incur. Make sure there is no restriction on mileage. Many companies offer an airport service where your car is waiting for you on your arrival and when you have finished with it you simply return it to the airport.

Buses in Spain
There are many bus companies throughout Spain that offer good service. Generally public buses are of a high standard, well maintained and cheap. Smoking is not allowed on any public transport in Spain. Most towns have a bus terminal estacion de autobus. When waiting at a bus stop, don't take it for granted that the bus will stop for you. Flamboyant signals and throwing yourself in its path are the only ways to ensure it stops for you. Many of the city buses only accept the correct change. Bear in mind that on Sundays and public holidays, schedules are drastically reduced. You are best to avoid travelling on these days.

 

Taxis in Spain
Only use taxis that display a special licence. Taxis are of a very high standard and are governed by strict legislation. Taxis display a green light when free (libre). You can flag a taxi down in the street or look for a taxi rank. Most taxis are metered but they will have set prices for certain journeys. The price structures are set by the local government. Tipping of 5-10% is customary. Smoking is not allowed in taxis. Ask about surcharges for airport trips and baggage handling.

 

WARNING

We have received many reports (and have experienced it for ourselves), that some taxi drivers, especially at the airports (Malaga in particular), will try to rip off tourists by over charging them. Before you get into a taxi for a long journey, ask for an estimate or fixed price. If in any doubt, ask the driver to write it down. This avoids any argument when he bills you. In the event of a dispute tell the taxi driver that you are going to call the police. This will be enough to resolve the situation
