Travel from Granada to Seville

Jump to last reply

What do you suggest is best way to travel from Granada to Seville - bus or train? I will be traveling 23 December so want to make my reservations as soon as possible to ensure availability during the holiday season. Thank you.

    I guess it depends what is most important to you. They are both fairly direct routes, and take about the same time. The train tickets are about the same price (around 30 euro), but some buses may be about 7 euro cheaper. But those are the buses with more seats (the Supra service has buses with one window side with only one seat, the normal service has two seats on each side of the center aisle). There are more buses each day, also, so more times to choose from, there are about 5 bus runs during daytime (8 am to 4:30 pm) but only two trains in that time frame.

    I find the seats actually a bit more comfortable on those ALSA buses than that type of train (Media Distancia), they are padded whereas those train seats are kind of flat. But there is more leg room on the train. With the train, you never have a worry about traffic/road issues that could take longer than normal. And it can save a little time just in the baggage issue, if you have to wait for the bus to unload the cargo hold.

    And of course they go different places, not that this is a big deal (train to San Bernardo or Santa Justa stations, bus to plaza de Armas, which is on the river, not too far from the Bellas Artas museum), but you may have a preference. Some AlSA buses go to Prado bus station which is over near San Bernardo train station. the bus company is www.alsa.es

    So I don't think there is one best way overwhelmingly.
