    Denia train station

    Only one block from the port U'll find the train station. Check out the schedules right there, and remember that spanish language will be welcomed. Usually on these places they only speak spanish. The signs will be written in different languages but the people working there will only for sure speak spanish.

  • FGV Train down the coast

    by Wendy-H Written Jul 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is a narrow gauge railway called the FGV which runs along the coast from Alicante up to Denia. there are several places along the way that you can stop including Javea, Benidorm, Terra Mitica them park and a lot more stops.
    i have only been on this train from Alicante to Benidorm. for this stretch you have to change trains at El Campello but it is easily signed. The journey i took, lasted about 80 minutes and was a lovely journey.
    i havent been from Denia down to Benidorm or anywhere yet, but apparently it is a beautiful scenic journey and well worth doing.
    To get to the train station, as you stand at the port with the sea behind you. walk to the left past the roundabout where the Red Cross is, go to the right, past the tourist office and you will see the station to the right.

    Car Hire is great.

    by rachel_sun Written Apr 21, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Car we hired on last trip.��100 for 10 days.

    Driving in Spain is pretty safe .Hiring a car is a great way to see places.Driving in the countryside is relaxing, but in the cities it can be hectic.Toll roads are paid in cash or credit cards.European,US and Canadian driving permits are valid in Spain.You must carry two warning triangles, spare light bulbs,fuses and a spare tyre.Minimum driving age is 18 and some car hire companies you have to be 21.If driving down in your own car, make sure you have proper insurance and a greencard.
    Watch out for on the spot fines in Spain.Drink driving limit is 50mgs of alcohol per 100ml of blood.Speed limits are 75mph on motorways.Fuel is slightly cheaper than Uk but double of that in US.
    I rented a car from Alicante airport for £103 for 10 days.A Ford Ka with air-con and all insurance etc included.This company is online and you can book online and pay online.Very good service and prices.Been with them 4 times.Skycars.They do other airports around Spain also.
    On our last trip we got a free upgrade too.So we got an extra £30 worth of car for nothing.We have booked again with Recordrentacar(skycars) and we now get a discount each time we book.Points.

  • Beware how much your fuel will cost you.

    by Wendy-H Written Mar 17, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We always hire a car from the airport when we visit our holiday home in Denia.
    Recently we have found that all the car hire companies charge you a set price of approx 50 - 60 euros for petrol. The car is full when you hire it and you have to bring it back empty. This is okay if you are doing a lot of driving, but if not, and we only usually use less than half, this can work out costly. You used to be able to bring it back full, and therefore you just paid for feul you used, but now all the hire companies seem to have caught on to the trick of charging you for a full tank irrespective of how much you actually use. It may be worth taking a little time to check out a few care hire companies to check their procedure on fuel charges.

    Travel to Valencia airport

    by soupd Updated Jan 8, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I won't double write a tip- Don't use the taxis from valencia airport. see my tip on my Valencia page.

    If you're wanting to travel to Valencia Airport from/to Denia, since the train is non existent, try the bus! We've now used it a couple of times, it gets you into the main bus station in Valencia from where you can catch a bus to the airport or use the metro (which is only a couple of hundred yards away). Cheapish at €8 one-way, i think the bus from the station to the airport is about €1-.50 now (dont quote me on that).
    It's great going to Valencia,as we got the express, so about 90mins, but on the way back the bus goes through gandia,oliva, vergel,poblets, ondarra- 2hrs.
    Not bad if you have the time, as its fairly expensive to leave the car parked at Valencia now they have done it up and opened the new car park (plus the petrol and tolls!)

    It's also therefore excellent if you fancy a night in Valencia- have you tried parking in the city?

    Denia is the closest point to Ibiza. It has a big port and Balearian ferries go to Ibiza, Palma de Mayorca and other islands every day.

    Beach loking towards Denia

    FLYING.There are two airports,Alicante and Valencia..........ROAD.The main access is from France at the Eastern side of the Pyrenees via Barcelona on the motorway.............BY RAIL.The Barcelona -Talgo links Paris with Barcelona in about 11hours.................CAR HIRE.You can hire a air-conditioned car from about £100 aweek.REMEMBER to take your driving licence with you.

    Airplane-

    Getting TO/AROUND:
    There are many companies now that fly to Spain.I go with Easyjet as they are cheap but do a good service.I have booked flights for coming spring for £50 return to Alicante .I have now flown 6 times with them and am very happy with their service.They fly to Barcelona for £12 upwards and Alicante for £30 upwards.You can goto their web site and check availability online and book online.Their are no tickets either, after booking they send you an email you just print out and you take to airport with you.
    You also dont have to waste money on crappy plane meals.They bring food round(crisps, soup etc) and you can buy if u feel peckish.Prices are realistic too for snacks and drinks.

    My cactus which i planted up last time i was in Sp

    Ryanair are also good -One month ago i booked my mother and father in law a flight to Spain for £4.99.Yes its true believe it or not.It was with Ryanair from Stanstead to Girona and the total cost including all taxes for two people one way was £30.Ryanair are also a great no frills airline and you can also check availability and book online.Again no tickets just an email with a code you print out.

    British Airways and Air France fly to Spain from England.From USA and Canada Iberia flies direct to Madrid.Delta Airlines also fly from the US to Spain.Alicante has a pleasant airport and when you land its normally hastle free and you swiftly go through passport and customs and baggage reclaim and onward to your car hire or coach company.All car hire companies are in the exit to the airport, you will see them all lined up .

  • Take the bus

    by Wendy-H Written Jul 20, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you dont rent a car, or just dont feel like driving, you can get a bus to and from Denia town quite easily from the Las Marinas area which is where our holiday home is.
    The buses are single decker and have a sign at the front "DENIA - LAS MARINAS,
    LAS MARINAS - DENIA"
    these buses run every 30 minutes. From the area near the hotel los angeles it is on the hour and half hour. the fare cost 90 cents into Denia and the bus goes along the las marinas road. It turns round at a roundabout on the port front and the bus stop where you get off, is where you get on to go back. the buses back go on the quarter past and quarter to and run until approx 10.45pm (but check at the time). Make sure you get on the Las Marinas bus, and not as i did, the Las Rotas! this goes in the opposite side of the port to the Las Rotas area. this is also very beautiful and a very rocky coastline. If you get on the wrong bus, just do as i did, jump up quickly, with a stupid look on your face and press the bell to get off! to bemused looks from your fellow travellers. then go and wait another 30 minutes for the next bus!!

  • local travel Barcelona /Denia

    by bf109467 Written Jul 6, 2009

    I am doing the same trip in the opposite direction at the end of next week. I already know that the fare from Girona airport (which is for charter/cheap flights only) to Barcelona by local bus is 7 Euros. Journey time is 40/60 minutes. Spanish regional train services tend to be very expensive, however there is a very good Public long distance bus service which is reasonably priced for instance, the fare from Denia to Malaga is 44 Euros. Therefore I would think the journey from Barcelona to Denia should be even cheaper. Tickets are book-able on-line or puchase just before at the bus station in Barcelona. Just because you are travelling by train in Spain dont assume that the travel time is any quicker than the Bus. The Train services end reasonably early at night,long distace Buses run right up to midnight.

  • FGV Train Denia to Benidorm

    by Wendy-H Written Sep 21, 2007

    We decided on a cold January day in Denia to catch the fgv train to Benidorm. Cost about 7 euros each. you will have to check the train times but run approx every hour throughout day to about 6pm
    This is a really lovely journey and one i would recommend. you go through lemon and orange groves, mountains and along the coast. Through Gata de Gorgos. it takes about 75 minutes and we really enjoyed it.
    only problem is when you get to Benidorm there are no taxis,and no one to ask about one. if you know any taxi numbers in Benidorm it would be worth calling one. its a long walk down intothe town and not well signed to where you will end up! Roughly keep walking straight down, when you come to a busy part of the road, cross and bear to the right and continue walking down. you will come out in the Spanish tapas bar area of the old town (I think!!) this is a nice quaint part of the town, tapas bars well worth trying. keep walking forward and you will come directly onto sea front on Levante beach.
