Spain Travel Information

Many of the major Spanish cities offer excellent local transport that is always reliable. Madrid and Barcelona, in particular, have extensive bus and metro systems, and other popular cities also benefit from efficient public transport. By European standards, prices throughout Spain are relatively cheap.


Cities, provincial capitals and smaller Spanish towns all have there own reliable bus networks. You can buy single tickets (usually between €1 and €2) on the buses or at tobacco shops (estancos), but at the larger cities, its more affordable to combine 10-trip tickets that allow the use of both bus and metro systems, which works out much cheaper per ride. These can be purchased in any metro station and from selected newspaper kiosks.


Madrid boasts the country’s most extensive metro network, similarly, Barcelona has a decent metro network. Valencia, Zaragoza, Bilbao and Seville are more limited but nonetheless, still have useful metro systems to take advantage of.

Single tickets are similar in cost to bus tickets (around €1.50) and for those enjoying an extended stay, monthly and seasonal passes are also available from all metro stations.


You can find an abundance of taxi ranks located at train and bus stations throughout Spain, or simply telephone for radio taxis.

In larger cities, taxi ranks can be found scattered around the city centre, and taxis will stop if you flag them down in the street – look out for the green light on the passenger side of the windscreen for availability.

The popular cities are well populated with taxis, although waiting times can be extensive, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. No more than four people are allowed in a taxi, word of warning for those travelling in large groups!
