Moving Around Spain
By Bus / Coach
There are very few places in Spain where buses don't go, but travelling by the local buses is the best option for people who are on a budget. Among the hundreds of bus operators in Spain, the largest range of services are ALSA, Avanza, and Socibus, among others. If you are under 26 years of age and want to travel long distance within Spain, you should inquire about discounts and offers on bus tickets.
By Taxi / Car
You can hail a taxi on the streets in Spain, just look for the libre sign on the passenger side of the windscreen. However, keep in mind that while taxis are easily found in and around Spain, hailing one down during the weekend could be quite a task. Alternatively, you could also call radio taxis for your convenience
Spain's impressive list of domestic air networks makes internal travel a cakewalk. Some of the low-cost airlines that operate internally include Air Europe, which is well connected from Madrid to A Coruña, Vigo, Bilbao, and Barcelona, as well as other routes between Spanish cities; Iberia, the national carrier; and Volotea, a budget airline that has both domestic and international flights.
Indians travelling to Spain require a valid Europe visa or a Schengen visa, valid for at least 3 months beyond the return date.
Best Time to Visit
Spain has a reliably sunny climate all through the year and is a pleasant country to visit. But if you want to see the country at its best, plan your visit during the months of April, May, June, September, and October.
