    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We booked our Spain vacation through Conquest Vacations. I believe this is the first time we have flown AIR FRANCE. We were both impressed with the service, though I do think we paid too much. It was $1023.00 plus 208.00 Taxes CDN. The flight was Toronto - Paris - Malaga. The plane from Toronto to Paris was new and very impressive. Little TV screens were at each seat, and the seats were actually comfortable. The meals were quite good and they had a good beverage service.
    Upon arrival in Malaga a Conquest Vacations representative met us outside the baggage claim and brought us the waiting driver who took us to our Hotel In Torremolinos.

    Latest flights to Spain:
    January 27 to Feb. 27, 2013
    DELTA - Detroit - Amsterdam - Malaga - Amsterdam - Atlanta - Detroit $2124.00 cost for the two of us.
    Will NEVER do this again.

    January 30 to March 2, 2014
    JET AIRWAYS - Toronto - Brussels - Malaga - Brussels - Toronto - $1698.30 cost for the two of us.

    January 28 to March 1, 2015
    LUFTHANSA / AIR CANADA - Toronto - Zurich - Malaga - Frankfurt - Toronto - cost $1467.32 for the tow of us. Booked thru

    How to get in and out, San Sebastian

    by gwened Updated Jan 9, 2015

    its very easy to drive as long as dont get into the old section , there better on foot. I go there and use the car always, park in Gros neighborhood here

    all commodities secure , central,and safe. There are other parking areas for choices

    the areas in red in the map are the cheapest to park, believe me its RED

    and here are identify all the parkings in the city ,click on the area of the map you want and see the parkings available

    The routes to Spain and France cuts across here at N1/AP1 (Madrid-Irún), and the expressways A-8 (Bilbao-Irún) ,and A-63 (Paris-Irún), as well as the local expressway A-15 (Pamplona-San Sebastian).

    There are 3 international airport within 100 kms of the city so very convenient I say. Bilbao, Biarritz(FRance),and San Sebastian. I have flown into San Sebastian once, and the airport is small and easy to navigate just outside and about 20 kms
    many connection by bus to the city, in Spanish and basque only but the above site will tell you the number and the schedule you pull below
    The Pesa bus network see site below also connect the airports of Bilbao with San Sebastian
    and of course the nearby French Biarritz also has connections downward with the Pesa and Alsa network and the Conda network to Pamplona. links below in bus section

    It has a nice train station call Estacion del Norte. The national railnetwork is RENFE
    and the local basque network Euskotren,
    the area is very close to France so many connections from there and here it is

    bus station and connections with eurolines, Alsa, Vibasa(monbus), pesa,conda, and lurraldebus. Links to follow as never use them, prefer to arrive by car and walk

    to move about it has a metro network but never use it as arrive by car and then walk,this only connect to Zarautz and some smaller areas around San Sebastian

    City buses are nice but again walking is best, the network is DBUS here in Basque station at Fernando Sasiain, 7
    email :
    however the bus network onlinen is in Basque
    you have the site with bus lines to reach from airport to hotels here

    taxis are
    Taxidonosti +34 943 46 46 46
    Vallina Teletaxi +34 943 40 40 40

    bike is limited to about 30 kms of network, only in Spanish or Basque

    From june 1 to September 30 there is an island ferry from San Sebastian to Santa Clara island
    Plaza La Lasta s/n – Harbour Ticket Desk

    and from Paseo del Muelle, s/n (San Sebastián Harbour)) you have a catamaran rides on the bay

    There is a funicular: Plaza del funicular 4; running from Ondarreta beach to Mount Igeldo about 3 minutes ride! and great views from above too as well as rides

    Touristic bus and train here
    Bus leaves from: Republica Argentina Street (Provisionally in Okendo)
    Train leaves from: Paseo Salamanca Street

    Getting to your chosen starting point

    by into-thin-air Written Dec 12, 2014

    Where possible, Especially on your outward journey to your chosen starting point of you Camino it is advisable to book your bus tickets in advance as sometimes when you turn up at the Bus Station (estación de autobuses) you find that there isn’t a bus, or the one that there is, is already full – ALSA Bus is the largest operator, journeys can be planned and tickets can be bought in advance at

    Most people walk their Camino’s within a given timeframe and have a prebooked flight home, so the same can be done for the end of your Camino from Santiago de Compostela back to your chosen departure airport

    Two years ago, I tried out the Alsa Supra
    If you can afford the extra fare then this is definitely the way to travel – Much more comfort, extra legroom, TV’s in headrests and snacks and drinks included in the price – Just the way to wind down after a long hard Camino

    Another option is the train – However this does tend to be both slower and more expensive, but if you particularly love train travel then journeys can be planned and train tickets can also be bought in advance at

    Back to Busses
    When you have no option but to just turn up at the bus station, the first thing to ascertain is who is operating the service that you are wishing to travel on – This can be very confusing and difficult to find out if, like me your Spanish isn’t really up to it (So again, if you can, search online before you set off, it can help a lot) – Then once you have found your operator, the next thing you have to do is identify the correct booth and buy your ticket (Often these booths are closed and only open up a short while before the bus departs)
    Writing both the time and destination of the bus down helps to minimise confusion.
    Then once you have your ticket, there are three numbers on it, The bus number, the stand number the bus departs from and the Seat number you have been allocated.

    Good Luck and Buen Camino

    Flying in Spain

    by gwened Written Nov 18, 2014

    Many times we need to research for our flights and nowdays savings is more so than ever, especially if you have a family.

    So the group Trabber had as survey to find the cheapest airlines flying out of Spain, and could be use for those coming in. The picture is the graph of the winners

    You can easily find their webpages on the internet. In addition, I always compare the prices with major wholesalers like expedia, travelocity, kayak, hotwire, edreams, skyscanner, voyages-sncf, govogages, and my favorite selectour. IN Spain, Viajes El Corte Ingles can be a good one as well as Marsans ,grupo iberostar, and trabber ,etc.

    long distances is always an alternative to use the airplane, even in Spain.

    yes great driving conditions, and great you are driving the best way to see things and little corners of a country. Snow some years and the mountains high up yes.

    the driving in cities is fast, but on the country is normal, the automobile assoc there can tell you about driving conditions
    here it is the law from Spain tourist office site

    it is enjoyable and a great way to come close to the culture with freedom of movement You have some newer photos and some older from crossing the pyrénées from France before tunnel days!

    then the roads
    from Madrid AP-41:toll road highest 7,55€ at
    or A-42 the expressway still for free.
    You can also take the A4 from the M30 at Madrid to just before Aranjuez and there take the calle de Picasso or N407 direction Toledo , free road.

    from the South Andalucía, A-4: Autovía del Sur, from Talavera de la Reina,Cacéres, or Portugal ,
    A-5: Autovía del Suroeste; from Cuenca, Albacete or Levante N-400: Autovía Madrid-Valencia (Vía Ocaña); from Ciudad Real CM-42: Autovía de los Viñedos; from Avila, Salamanca and Valladolid N-403: Carretera Toledo-Ávila

    How to come in and out ,Salamanca

    by gwened Written Sep 2, 2014

    nice city with a cluster old city center. Still I come by car when visiting the city in the past.
    Easiest for most I think is to take a bus or train from Madrid. bus Avanzabus and train Renfe. takes about 2 hrs.By car take the fast expressway A-50; and there from other points the roads A-62 and A-66 are also helpful.
    The city center is pedestrian and once in town best is to walk. However as me, I go in with my car and then walk;to park these are the best underground garages
    My favorites are Colon, and Reyes de Espana(metapark).

    The bus company Avanza Bus,has a direct route from Barajas Madrid airport to the city , at Terminal 1 in front of arrivals parking. You can buy the ticket at the bus online, in the airport, on any agency Viajes de El Corte Inglés, that has also one at the airport on first floor Terminal 1

    The bus station in Salamanca is at
    Avenida Filiberto Villalobos 71
    Telephone +34 923 226 079

    The train station in Salamanca is at
    Avda de la estación s/n
    and from Madrid they go from Chamartin station. From airport metro line 8 to Nuevos Ministerios and then line 10 to Chamartin.

    There is a small airport at Matacàn near Salamanca offering charter filghts and some regular flights to other cities in Spain and Europe.
    official info page here

    For local buses there is the grupo Ruiz, transportes de Salamanca
    the schedule is here including the night lines

    How to get in and out ,Jaca

    by gwened Written Aug 25, 2014

    This is a town I have passed by many times over the years, and we set out with the family to finally see in depth. The way we always got here is by car, driving from Madrid or from France.

    The road N330 takes you into the pyrénées mountains and the Tunnel of Somport to France and back. Once in city outskirst you find the centro or road N330a that passes in front of the ciudadela or castle of San Pedro. The N330a takes you to Sabiñanigo and Huesca/Zaragoza as well as the autovia A23. The N240 takes you to Pamplona and al.

    To know the condition of the roads especially in mountanous jaca good to check here in Spanish
    for route planning in Spain best is Repsol, the gas service station company

    you ,also ,have a good interactive street planner for Jaca here
    just magnify it on the left upper level and play with it.

    The best parking is by Plaza Ripa in front of the Bus terminal or Estacion de Autobuses in Avenida de la Jacetania just behind the Cathedral of San Pedro and very inexpensive , we pay 6€ for the whole day.
    Here you have direct buses to Huesca, Pamplona, and Zaragoza by Alosa (part of group Avanzabus).

    and the local bus service has a map with times in Jaca city site here

    The autonomous community of Aragon service buses linking several communities in the Valley such as Castiello, Villanúa, Canfranc , and the ski stations of Candanchú and Astún. info link here

    By tren RENFE has service from Jaca to several towns in the valley and Huesca, Zaragoza ,and Madrid. The station is in the outkirst of town at Calle de la Estacion. From Ciudadela at calle de Francia (N330a) take Calle Zaragoza past traffic circle take right Calle Fondabos, and continue to Calle de la Estacion. According to Google is about 13 minutes I did not time it as went with my car.

    The Somport Spain France

    by gwened Updated Aug 1, 2014

    This is a route that I took many times to visit relatives and show off my girlfriend and now wife of 23 years. WE travel by car along these wonderful mountain passes even before the Somport tunnel was build. Driving on a VW Golf on first gear up the mountain by Urdos, the customs station before the UE took away frontiers.

    The area tourist office is from France,

    and from Spain is at

    you can get route planner from France

    and from Spain

    My first trip here was back in 1991, and I left from Meaux in dept 77 Seine-et-Marne , driving a VW Golf manual trans. no AC, we drove on the A4 to Fontainebleau on the N36 and then took a bit of the A6 passing Melun.then took on the A19 to direction Orléans, and hook up with the A71 to Vierzon, and then the A20 (old N20) to Brive-la-Gaillarde ,Cahors, Moutaban,Toulouse, to get on the A64 to Pau,and then the D934 passing by Gan to Oloron-Sainte-Marie, becomes the N134 to the Spanish border passing Bedous,accous,Candanchu,Canfranc, Villanua, Jaca, Huesca; on the N330, then the A23 to Zaragoza, then the A2 to Catalayud,Medinaceli, around Guadalajara, Alcala de Henares, Torrejon de Ardoz, into Ave de America in Madrid, turn left at calle de Francisco Silvela to left at Calle Alcala past the monumental bullfight ring, and into my old teen neighborhood of Quintana.

    It took then about 17/21 hrs depending on how we stop on the road, having stayed night in hôtels in Pau and Villanua, (tips here in France and Spain). Glorious trips and looking forward to the next one
