Spain Travel Deals: Cheap Transport in Barcelona
Today, I have another article for you about Spain travel deals in Barcelona. This time, I want to tell you a bit about how you can get around the city itself without wasting a lot of time and money. Now, before I go on, I want to say that it is definitely a good idea to do some walking around in the city if you are able. Barcelona is a beautiful city, and you will want to be out and about so that you can see all that it has to offer. I would always recommend getting a centrally located hotel, and doing some exploring on foot if time permits.
That being said, you may only have a short time to visit Barcelona. It may also be the case that you have booked accommodation outside of the main city, or that you or a traveling companion has mobility issues. If that is the case, then I would suggest that you take advantage of some of the excellent Spain travel deals offered by Barcelona’s cheap and efficient public transport service.
In this post, I want to talk about an excellent deal that can be had when you choose to purchase a T10 transport card. As in many cities you can either purchase individual travel tickets every time you use public transport, or you can buy a T10 pass, which is valid for several journeys. More specifically, the pass can be used for up to ten journeys. It is useful for trips carried out on several modes of transportation including the city’s metro, busses, and train service.
In addition to the convenience it offers by allowing you to utilize different forms of transport, the pass can also be shared with other members of your travel group. (Please note: If two members of your party use the pass to take the same single journey, this will count as two individual uses).
It is also worth noting that a journey which combines two or more forms of transport (ie. Metro and bus), can be counted as a single journey if the total travel time does not exceed 75 minutes. This can also be a big money saver, as you will not need to waste another use on the card just to change forms of transport.
Do keep in mind that you will usually want a T10 pass for zone 1. (There are six zones in the transport system, but most sites are in zone 1). The price for this type of ticket is just 7.70 Euros, as opposed to 1.35 per ticket, should you choose individual tickets. This makes the T10 one of the best Spain travel deals for intercity transport in Barcelona. Pick your pass up at the city airport or at a metro or train station once you start your trip.
