Getting around in Granada / Re: Getting from the Airport by taxi
« Last post by granadaexpert on April 21, 2013, 11:37:31 PM »
FROM THE AIRPORT BY TAXI
The price of a taxi to San Miguel Bajo in the Albayzin should be 30-32€.
As in all walks of life there are a minority of bad people who will overcharge you.
There seems to be little effort to discipline the bad taxi drivers who give the majority of good ones a bad name.
For this reason I advise you to look at this page about avoiding getting ripped off by taxi drivers.
http://granadainfo.com/taxis.htm
This journey should take about 35 minutes.

AIRPORT BUS THEN 31 MINIBUS
If you take this option the price of the bus is 3 euros per person.
A trip on the 31 bus is 1.20 euros.  So this option will cost 12.60 euros.

It could be a little taxing getting 3 suitcases onto the bus and off again.
If you are worried about this then get off the airport bus at Jardines de Triunfo
where there is a taxi rank and get into a taxi.  There is a taxi rank next to the big pole with a Spanish flag on top.

You can see the aiport bus stops on this page.

If you get off the plane and go straight to the bus there should be no problem with missing it.
When you go out of the arrival area where you pick up the suitcases just turn right and go out of the door at the end.
You should see the bus waiting.

This journey should take about 50 minutes.

Getting around in Granada / Getting from the Airport by taxi
« Last post by Jackie on April 21, 2013, 11:15:04 PM »
I am trying to work out how best to get from Granada airport to San Miguel Bajo in the Albayzin.  We are travelling widely before arriving in Granada, so we shall each have a full-size suitcase.  Our flight arrives at 16.55.

It seems to me that I have two choices:
Either the airport bus or a taxi.

It says on the granadainfo.com  site that the airport bus, which runs in relation to flights, leaves only five minutes between landing and the bus leaving - is that enough time to catch it?

Is it too difficult with three people and three suitcases to get the airport bus to the Gran Via bus stop, and then get a 31 minibus or find a taxi  close by to bring us to San Miguel Bajo?

Alternatively, if we have to get a taxi all the way from the airport, how much would that cost, and would it be much quicker than the bus option?

I used to go out with a group called the extra grupo which organised walks, excursions etc.

There is an excellent website which I have not used but it looks really good.

There are loads of activities, such as walking,  tapa crawls, sports etc.

It is all free.

Here is the website.

When I travel I like to get to know the local people rather than spending all my time with other tourists.

Does anyone know any activities I can participate in so that I can meet the Granadinos.

I am going to be in Granada for 1 month

I have spoken to a number of people who have had this problem with non-Spanish credit cards.

The best answer is to sign up with Paypal and then pay using paypal.

That way your payment will be accepted.

Miscellaneous / Alsa.es won't accept my credit card
« Last post by hudson on February 25, 2013, 10:26:38 AM »
I have been trying to book my bus tickets using alsa.es which is the site everyone recommends for bus tickets.

I have tried 4 credit cards including my wife's card but the error message is always
"your bank will not approve this transaction"
The cards are all from banks in the USA.

I know that all the cards are OK

What is happening?
