Transportation – From car rentals, to trains, buses and BlaBla Car you have many options available to cross Spain from one point to another!

We decided to rent a car for our 1 week stay and this because in our case it was the fastest and also the cheapest options. If you plan to use the public transport, while the train system is fast, it’s also expensive so if you have the time and want to go on a budget, take the buses.


Suggested daily budget – 100-150 EUR + if you stay in a hotel, car rental, go to museums, eat out in a medium place 2 + times that day, maybe some souvenirs also.

50-60 EUR +  assuming you’re staying in a hostel, eating out a little, cooking most of your meals, and using local transportation.
