Moving around in Spain - transportation

In addition, traveling on a personal or rented car is also possible in Spain. Although the quality of roads here are not the best in Europe, it is quite acceptable for comfortable travel. The price of gasoline in Spain is quite expensive and there are a lot of toll roads. This should be taken into account in advance when planning your budget. There are also systems of strict fines, so it is advisable not to violate the traffic rules. The fine on an average car is about $ 40 per day. It is therefore not advisable to travel by cars in large cities, as it is very easy to get a fine of 85 Euros for incorrect parking. There is also the likelihood of traffic jams ruining your vacation plans. Bicycles which are available for hire are a good option in Madrid and other cities. There are chic bike trails in all regions. You can also rent a motorcycle or a scooter. Taxi in Spain is quite expensive. A ride on a taxi costs a minimum of 2 Euros. A kilometer costs around 1.2 Euros, excluding baggage fee. … Open

Now it directly depends on the degree of qualification of the employee, on the position held and on the capabilities of the organization in which the person works. To date, the level of official unemployment does not fall below 10%. The fight against this indicator is directly related to education. According to statistics, out of five million unemployed, about two million have no special training. The average wage is about 27,000 Euros per year, taxes inclusive. The GDP as of last year is 1,352 billion dollars, while the national debt per capita of Spain is just over 34 thousand dollars. … Open
