      transfer from cruise terminal to hotel

      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

    • Tangier to Algeciras

      by RoroD Online Now Jul 5, 2015 at 2:47 AM

      We are travelling from Tangier to Madrid.

      Is Algeciras where the train to Madrid leaves from?
      Do we need to get a ferry to Tarifa then bus to Algeciras to catch the train to Madrid? OR
      Is there a ferry from Tangier straight to Algeciras?

      Thank you

      Hi! This summer i'll be with a friend in Andalusia and Morocco. We are going to Morocco with a ferry from Algeciras (5pm) and on that day we'd like to take a look at Gibraltar and its rock. Do you think it's possible if we get there in the morning? How long does it take to go from Gibraltar to Algeciras?
      Thanks a lot

      Hello...I am arriving in Algeciras on July 24, 2014 at 11 AM. I would like to catch a bus to Tarifa, but am having trouble booking one. I can see a schedule that states there is a bus leaving Algeciras to Tarifa at 11:45, but when I go to book it, it says there is no route to Tarifa. I have tried to use the TG Comes, ALSA, and Movelia websites. Do I need to book tickets in advance? Is the 11:45 bus from Algeciras-Tarifa accurate information? Any help you could provide me with is appreciated. Thanks.

      I'm making my way up to Granada from Morocco. Will be staying over at Tangier.
      Was told that I need to take a ferry from Tangier to Algeciras on 18 July 2010.

      Is it advisable to book online in advance or purchase the tickets only when we're there?

      Should I also purchase return tickets or outward tickets twice to return to Morocco?

      Book in advance for May?

      by lovinoz Online Now Feb 25, 2006 at 9:26 PM

      Should we worry about booking in advance if we are planning to stay in a budget place for 1 night in May? Will there be plenty of choices? Do they give big discounts on their normal rates if you book upon arrival (stand by rates)? Do they work on a bartering system there and encourage negotiating lower rates? Is there a good place to go to find cheap accomodation upon arrival by train from Madrid?

      Thanks! Happy Travels!
