Staying and La Linea.....

hi there,

I will be staying in mid August in a hotel in La Línea de la Concepción (near the bus station). I would like travel from there to marbella but not quite sure how the bus route works i.e. timetable, journey length and bus fares to travel to marbella.

I was also wondering what is the most cost effective way to travel from la linea or marbella to barcelona.

I would really appreciate any help you could give me.

many thanks,

linda ;)

Bus company Portillo run the service from La Linea de la Concepcion to Marbella

http://www.ctsa-portillo.es/index.html (website is down at the moment so cannot check times for you).

To get to Barcelona, first travel to Malaga then either train or fly.

High speed train takes 5hr 45 mins

Several airlines travel the route, which are probably cheaper than the train at this late time for booking.

Ryanair, Spanair and Iberia

I've never used the bus service but I would guess about an hour.

Arriving at Malaga airport at 9.30am Been advised to get the train from airport to Fuengirola and then bus to La Linea and hotel, How long would this take? How often do the trains and connections run do you think we would be able to do this comfortably, 2 well travelled 63yr olds !!!

Also is there any problems getting over the border to Gebraltar, is there a bus from La Linea?

Any info much appreciated.
