TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT AND BUS TICKET HACKS – Collaboration with ALSA coaches

image

We’re getting ready to head on our collaboration trip with ALSA coaches and to say we’re excited is a little bit of an understatement.

I know a lot of you have been super curious to hear where we’re going and it has been pretty difficult to keep this a secret I may have already left some hints but stay with me for just a few more moments.

I just want to take this time to give you some information about the different passes available to you from ALSA, before you jump right in and buy individual tickets. Make sure you plan ahead. It could save you some serious dollar. Which equates to more trips, am I right?

There are a few passes to take a look at, like the frequent traveller pass and the share pass. If your route is one of the routes listed, many of them departing from Madrid, you can get some serious savings. You can find out about the frequent traveller pass and the share pass by following this link: https://www.alsa.com/en/web/bus/offers-and-passes/passes

We are currently using the ALSAPASS which provides unlimited travel throughout Spain for either 7, 11 or 15 days. These passes provide a massive saving, a return ticket alone to Granada from Benidorm can be around 75€ plus booking fees and travel insurance can take you up to the 80€ mark, once you’ve added in other trips it can get costly.

But, there’s a hack. The ALSAPASS for 7 days is just 99€ per person, so as long as you don’t take more than three buses a day or pick a bus that costs more than 80€, you’re on to an absolute winner.

This is the pass we will be using.

So, you want to know where we’re heading? I feel like this has been a big build up. Should I add drum roll sounds? I feel like it’s essential. Let’s do it.

We’re going to Granada and Seville with ALSA!

I am so excited about this trip. Seville is one of our absolute favourite places. Ask either of us and we’ll always list Seville in our Top 5 Destinations. Usually, it comes Top 3. We love it so much.

We fell in love with Seville back in 2015 and we’ve been wanting to go back ever since. Andalusia is a gorgeous region in Spain, known for its flamenco, tapas and vibrant colours. It was so difficult to pinpoint my favourite place in the city, so I’m going to make it my mission this time to list my favourites!

We are also looking forward to spending time back in Granada, which I feel didn’t get enough love from us last time. We were pretty disheartened last time that we didn’t manage to get tickets to The Alhambra, so we wasted a lot of time. Although we won’t have tickets this time, we’re determined to explore the city in more detail and find some beautiful spots.

We’ll be spending around 24 hours in both Seville and Granada, so we’ll be making sure to compile what you must see in Seville and what you must see in Granada in 24 hours, and how it’s possible!

But, there’s more…

I’m also so pleased to announce that whilst we’re in Granada, we’ve teamed up with Granada Turismo to make use of their Granada Pass, visiting all of the beautiful museums that Granada has to offer and sharing our experience.

We’ll be bringing you some serious Southern Spain wanderlust over these next few days, so keep an eye on my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! I’ll also be adding our best photos to Pinterest!

I’m so glad that you all love reading the content and finding out what we’re up to and our experiences. A massive thank you to all of you for the continued support!

I’ve spent so long living vicariously through travel bloggers but now it’s our time. I hope you’ll join us on board. Next stop, Andalusia.

Hasta luego,

This trip has been made possible thanks to the team at ALSA and The Tourism Team at the Town Hall of Granada. I have not been paid to write this post. The trip has been made possible thanks to a no payment collaboration. This post is purely to introduce our travel, provide information about the services and what to expect. We hope you’ll join us on our travels. My views are 100% mine and have used ALSA to Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Valencia, Albacete and Barcelona in previous trips and would happily recommend the ease of travel and affordability to travel.
