If you’re planning to visit Spain for your upcoming vacation, you’ve come to the right place. Since we’re all familiar with the bitter reality of limited vacation days in a year, we’re sure that you’ll want to make the most out of your precious few.

The best way to achieve this is to list down all the spots that you want to visit during your trip and plan to take the best possible transport facilities that offer the shortest commute to your desired destinations! Following are a few options that you can look into.

  1. Air Travel

In addition to being a beautiful blend of culture and festivities, cities like Barcelona and Madrid are also very tourist friendly. Since Madrid itself is a business and tourist hub, there is a multitude of internal flights that depart from the Madrid airport at regular intervals of time.

It is very spacious despite being one of the busiest airports in the country and therefore provides tourists with a comfortable environment to kill time in during instances of delayed flights and/or layovers.  Moreover, its proximity from the city center (i.e., 12 kilometers) makes it an extremely convenient travel option for tourists traveling from one city to another.

  1. Trains

Spain’s very own national network of trains, RENFE, operates all across the country in periodic intervals, making it one of the most efficient means of transport to choose from. If you plan on traveling long distances that might cost you more on an airplane, you might find it easier to book a high-speed train such as this one.

Most tickets may come with an additional discount if booked online and ahead of time. It goes through several main cities of Spain including Madrid, Barcelona, and Seville, etc.

  1. Bus Service

If you’re traveling a shorter route, bus services are perhaps your cheapest bet. They provide easier access for those venturing to locations that are off-route of main highways or rural areas, i.e. areas that don’t have train lines or airports.

These depart from several major cities at regular intervals of time and go through various small towns on the way. Tickets can be booked online in advance or person.


Whether you’re a veteran tourist or newbie, it is always a good idea to plan your trip and commute schedule in advance so that you spend minimum time traveling and enjoy your trip to the absolute fullest.
