Viajando en bus por las Tierras de Hispania
When a European thinks of traveling, the plane is almost always the first option. It's fast, safe and, thanks to low cost airlines, cheap

We forget there are also other cheap options and plenty of adventures. We mean for example traveling by train or, as in the present case, by bus.

A lot of bus companies offer direct lines from several European countries to destinations in Spain. What’s more, a number of Spanish bus stations offer connecting services with the main airports.

Once you arrive to Spain, bus services run to almost 200 hundred destinations in a maximum journey time of 12 hours. From almost every province you can get to main stations in Madrid (Avenida de América y Estación sur) o Barcelona (Sants y Paseo de Gracia).

It is also important to say that Spain has a modern and safe fleet of buses and the cost of tickets is very affordable for European travelers.
If you want to travel to Spain by bus, start your journey in this web:

You can find in it a table with direct lines from various countries to Spain

Check the movelia website for detailed information on routes, fares and timetables. You can also book your travel and get discounts, for example with the Europen Youth Card. In the main routes you cannot buy your ticket in the bus. You must purchase it in advance.

Here you have some links of several companies of buses where you can book your ticket in advance:
•    Alsa-Enatcar:
•    Eurolines:
•    Linebus:
•    Starbus:
•    Busbam:
•    And a web to look for bus stations:

Traveling by bus allows the traveler to visit Spain in a closer, unhurried and cheaply way. In addition the traveler can, in some cases, snuggle overnight while you wait for your bus and dream of your next destination. Pay attention to the European Youth Portal to know more about how to spend the night at bus stations.
