Moving around in Spain - transportation
Buses are the best alternative to trains. According to the schedule, it becomes clear that buses run more often than trains and their tickets cost almost twice lower. Bus stations are located practically in every city. You can significantly economize if you make tickets reservation in advance. However, please note that tickets with large discounts are nonrefundable. Trips on the international bus carrier “Alsa” are very popular among tourists. Within a city, you can also easily move around by metro. It is worth considering that the cost of the metro tickets will depend on the number of transport zones crossed. The minimum price is one and a half euro. So, as Spain is bordered by the seas from three sides, transportation by sea is also popular here, particularly by ferries. With their help, you can get from the mainland to any island in the country. This is also an excellent option for those who want to travel by car, because all ferries also have impressive baggage compartments for transporting cars.
Economy roadmap of Spain
In terms of the number of tourists coming to the country, Spain ranks second in Europe, immediately after France. At the same time, inflation has in recent years caused a decline in tourism activity by 17%. Catalonia, the Balearic, and Canary Islands enjoy the highest demand of tourist activity in the country. On average, tourism gives the state about 80 billion Euros a year. About one and a half million locals are employed in this industry. At the state level, there is active support for the development of beach recreation. The banking system of Spain is highly valued in Europe. The amount of foreign exchange reserves is about 14 billion Euros. There is a high concentration of bank capital, but only a little more than 350 credit institutions can be found. The most expensive financial assets are the group “Banco Santander Central Hispano”.
