    • Night train from Oran to Béchar

      Algeria Sep 22, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      Hello everyone! Looking to take 10 days in Algeria in January. I know there is a daily sleeper service from Oran to Béchar, but I have a few concerns about it based on what I have read.

      -First and foremost, it appears to be hard to get tickets; I'm basing this on a French language Algerian news clip I found on Youtube that appears to be from this year. The impression I have is that you need to buy tickets on the day at the station and that it is often sold out. I am happy to buy them in person in advance (In Alger or Oran) if it's possible, and plan on traveling first class. Would any of this be a problem? (video here:

      -Second, it looks like trip takes 10 hours overnight... but that there is no real food service. Is this the case?

      Not terribly concerned about climatisation (as it will be winter) or cleanliness for one night if it gets us where we need to be.

      tl:dr - What's the deal with the train from Oran to Béchar?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Spain to Algeria

      Wilaya d' Oran Apr 12, 2007 at 9:40 AM

      Hi, I am planning to visit Algeria this autumn via Spain. I know that a crossing runs between Alicante in Spain and Oran in Algeria. Would like to know if Oran is good cultural place to visit for a few days. I have been trying to get a book about Algeria but have been unable to locate one apparently Lonely Planet is publishing one later this year - any ideas?

      Any help is much apreciated. Elizabeth

      Oran Jun 8, 2004 at 1:51 PM

      Hello. I am new here and my own Page is just in the beginning but, anyway, maybe someone can help me by my intention to visit Oran. I live in Germany and a friend of mine lives in Oran. I like to visit him but i am not sure if it's possible. There is the problem that i don't speak any france, only english and of course only some words arabic. And i am not sure how safe it is for a european man in north Algeria. Then i need a visa. Can i get a visa without any travel agenture only with a private Invitation? I think about to go to Oran in Oktober or November. How is the season in that time? Also i would be very thankful for any tips and help. Best wishes to you and thank's.
