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
