ALSA bus (Spain) web discount
Hi there,

I've tried to Google but can't find the info, so perhaps someone can help me out. I'm booking tickets online for an ALSA bus for my mother, brother, and myself. I'm seeing that I have two options for a web discount for "Large Families". On the site it says in order to use this "they must submit an ID card or passport together with the large family book", but what does a "large family book mean" ?

"Familia Numerosa" is an official status for Spanish families. Once yo have three children you register with official documents ( the family book), are issued a card and receive special discounts on all government and private transportation, airfare included.

Non-residents do not qualify. I'm not even sure non-Spaniards qualify.

that´s an special discount for families with three kids or more (or, in the case of single parents, I think it is only two kids).
The family gets an official document mentioning the number of children under 25, and they can get various discounts.

So, no, you cannot get that discount unless you would be living in Spain and having that card.

Lin, resident non-Spaniards do qualify ... as soon as they register in their town councils.

Bye, Cova
