Athens to Barcelona: Attention - Low Cost Airline Experts

by Mozumbus

We are a group of 6 guys (Age: 26 to 29) planning to visit Greece (and other countries) in June, 2009. In order to finalize our itinerary, I am looking for a cheap solution to reach to Barcelona (or any other destination in Spain). So far, I am successful in finding a Euro 80 Vueling Airline option on June 16, 2009.

I request experts to let me know if there is a cheaper option available keeping in mind the above mentioned parameters (+/- 1 day).


I'm no expert but

Anyway, I would not think it twice and take Vueling. You won't find anything cheaper. There is actually no low-cost airline competition in this route.

Many thanks freland and frachal73.
I have never travelled through these Low Cost Airlines, but understand that one can not expect much from them. I also understand, after a prelminary research, that Low Cost airlines charge extra for luggage and other facilities.
I will be greatful if you answer any of the below quick questions:
Question # 1: What are the allowed dimensions for Hand Carry?
Question # 2: Assuming that I am buying a plain one-way ticket (specifically: Athens - Barcelona) from Vueling/ clickair (Web Fare), will there be any penalties if I show up with an extra bag over and above the Hand Carry?
Question # 3: If I book my ticket through Credit Card via internet, what are the options regarding refunds, if there are any?

You can see it eg at Vueling >Useful info> FAQs

by freland

"Any weight exceeding 20 kg will be charged at a rate of 8 euros per additional kg; up to the total maximum of 50 kg allowed per person.
The maximum weight admissible per package is 32 kg.

You are allowed to take 1 piece of carry-on luggage weighing up to 10kg with the maximum dimensions of 55x40x20cm.

These conditions are subject to space availability.

At the boarding gate, hand luggage that does not comply with the company’s regulations – that is, exceeding stipulated amount, weight or dimensions (55x40x20) – will incur a cost of €30 per suitcase.
"You can change your ticket up to 2 hours prior to the scheduled flight departure time to ensure no money loss, however you cannot cancel a ticket. This practice is necessary in order to offer you the best prices."

I suggest you check the fare rules.

The lowest rates hardly ever allow changes or refunds. If they do allow changes, you always have to pay a penalty plus, in most cases, a difference between the fare you booked and the next available fare for the moment, which is always higher. In addition to that, if you do this through the Booking phone, Vueling will charge an extra fee.

As for the rest, the low cost concept is ok when you don't fly long-haul. You just have to become aware you cannot expect anything at all (no food, no compensation in case of delay, no reprotection with other airlines or anything).

Travel Tips for Barcelona

Barcelona Cathedral, located...

by chrissyalex

Barcelona Cathedral, located in the Gothic Quarter.It has 28 side chapels that encircle the nave and contain some very nice Baroque altar pieces.It is sometimes called 'The Church of the Dancing Egg'

Late Night Drinking

by luke850

As in most Spanish cities, the people of Barcelona like to come out late and party 'till late. Most of the locals tend to come out at around 10pm and stay in the bars and clubs until the early hours of the morning. If you want to join them, i suggest sleeping in late, or having a siesta in the middle of the day.

Packing List

by ger4444

its a bonus when you have luggage that fits in a locker at the Sants station (the maximum size, that fits in a locker is: 0,3 by 0,75 meter) Then you can f.e. put your luggage at the station, while hangin around in the city without having to wear that backpackege the whole time (and you can sleep safely on the Barcelona beach, without the risk that they rob your luggage while sleeping!) June, july, august: no coats or warm sweaters are needed. Most travellers we have met take LEGO with them. We still havent figured out why that is, but probably they want to rebuilt those Gaudi Buildings. If you want to join in i can recomment the following LEGO-boxes: 1. The brown Lego&Gaudi box (containing the four pre-fab made towers of the Sagrada Familia) 2. The yellow-red '70s LEGO-box (containing great grey LEGO-street grounds, on wich you can build your Gaudi-buildings, the special edition (4,50 $ extra) also has the 8-way street-pattern! 3. LEGO-streetcar box (containing 3 police cars and a few civilian cars, including LEGO-motors to drive up these cars. - the motors of the policecars are -somehow- not availlable yet)

Arrow Loops and Battlements in the old buildings

by dlytle

While you are walking around the side streets between the La Rambla and the Cathedral or in the Barri Gotic section be sure that you cast your glance upwards occasionally. Most tourists are looking into the windows of the stores or noticing the cobblestone streets under their feet. Few, however, seem to take notice of the interesting architectural and historical sights that are above them in the walls of some of the older buildings.

Up on the walls you can often see Arrow Loops (An opening in any type of fortification wall, usually shaped like a key hole, vertical slit or cross, that allows an archer to fire his weapon with a great amount of protection) where the ancient citizens manned these walls in defense of the old city. I found them on many of the buildings close to the old roman areas and the cathedral.

Occasionally I think I also saw some of the old battlements (a fighting position on the top of the castle wall or tower. This includes the crenellated wall and the wall walk) from which the defenders could fight off attacks.

Rahter Expensive

by DPando about Shoes / Clothes

Barcelona is quite expensive, indeed those who come from UK
There are a lot of international firms with fashionable stores along and across the downtown
Passeig de Gracia is bloody expensive , from Vinçon store to wealthy jewleries, with the exception of some stores as Zara or Massimo Dutti
You can find everything there if you are ready to spent a lot of money lol So much!!
