Are YOU Traveling to Spain On A Budget?

What a coincidence, so am I!  Here are the websites I used to book my accommodation and transits.
It was easy to search within each city I was staying in, set the number people per room, and find the best deal. It was also helpful using the map function to see what was nearby. I always paid the extra 1 to 5 euros for cancellation rights, because plans change and I didn't want to take the risk! Most listings on have free cancellation.

Renfe is the train service in Spain. If the website is in Spanish when you navigate to it, make sure to click "welcome" on the top right of the page:

This site is pretty straight forward. For Americans, it's very similar to booking a plane ticket. Make sure you buy your tickets ahead of time if your traveling in peak season (June - August). They do fill up during holidays and tourist season.

ALSA is a bus service that operates throughout Spain. Again, if it's in Spanish, be sure to click on the itty bitty British flag in the middle top of the screen.

ALSA is also a straight forward booking site, similar to Renfe. Definitely check both sites before booking. Buses are a little bit slower, but sometimes can save you a lot of money.

Veulling is very similar to EasyJet in terms of price and availability, but they did seem to offer flights in some locations of Spain that were more affordable than EasyJet (i.e. Seville to Barcelona). So compare the two sites before booking a flight.

If any more websites come to mind, I will be sure to share them with you.

Safe travels,
